Here my last months attempt... I really don't know what to do with this... Maybe I'll finish it someday...
I've been busy last months. I'm not a professional illustrator, so I have to work in something else. The thing is I've been drawing a lot anyway, but focousing in make things right. That's about shapes, color, lots of sketches, but, the most important creating a way to work, to make illustrations, a methode.
I'm with something for an agency I hope I'll be able to show on next months, but for now my new illustration.
I've had this illustration in my head since last year, anb I changed my mind many times, but this time is the right one. I don't know if anyone know the Oddworld saga, one of the best videogames saga I've ever played, meaning the artwork, the ambience to be the best... This a non-finished - the amphibius sking is waiting" - poster remaking the saga, the style... I'm crazy to see this finished!
Nice work Zarquino! Take a look at this strange second-elbow, or this is a particularity of this anatomy? It's very strange and all my attention was in this highlight, maybe it is so hard to only represent the muscle volume.
Today I've been adding more detail, textures and hair. Hair? Abe did'nt have hair! In the initial sketches he had hair, I guess they erased it cause of the difficulties that hair brings to the whole game - animation, etc -, but I like it. I know it's more a Connan than Abe, but it's what I wanted, an avenger, not this simple guy who used to say "Hello, follow me".
I've tried the way Dave Rapoza works - first bw, then a little color, more color, textures... - and I think it works well. Obviously Im not Rapoza, but, well, one has to finde his way!
And a little detail of the face:
