Fighting robots

This week'll be robot week, to remedy how I normally don't draw robots.  At some point I hope to force myself into doing a car week... but right now I don't have that kind of willpower :P

Also trying a new way of painting.  For this one I started out in black and used the black layer as a mask to lay in early colors.  It was an interesting experiment.

Steps:

Lunch doodle

30 minutes lunch doodle.

Lanthian Priest Colored

Could not resist coloring this guy.


Holy priest of light. Part of his duty is to patrol around his temple at night to bring light and peace. The blade he holds is ceremonial, a ward against the evils in the shadow.

Lanthian Priest

A true believer in light, the high priest almost starves himself to purify his spirit.

The King

To balance out all the line drawings, here's a quick (30 minute ish) lunch value sketch.

New card

My best card to-date.  The process was surprisingly smooth and there were almost no changes from sketch to color.

Haven't managed to beat this one in any of my newer cards yet, but hopefully my next one will be better :)

Sett Archer sketch



Same universe, different culture.  I'm not quite sure where this one's going to go yet.  Hopefully I'll figure things out at some point.

Astra Trader Sketch

I loved writing fantasy stories in high school, and some of the stories evolved to hint at a larger fantasy world.  I hope to make a game out of this world at some point, but I thought I should begin doing sketches now rather than waiting for myself to learn scripting... which in theory would happen once I feel happy about my art skills... which may never actually happen :P

The world's populated by humans of different racial and cultural groups, rather than high fantasy humanoid races like elves or dwarves.  The people of Astra is kind of like real-life Gypsies.  They roam about solo or in groups as traders, seers, or mercenaries.  There are no known Astra settlements or kingdoms on any map. Adding to the mystery and taboo is their ability to work strange, voodoo-like spells that do not belong in any officially recognized school of magic.

Breeze

There's a really nice breeze in my apartment right now.  Instead of working on my WoW cards, I really felt like doing a quick doodle before dinner.

It's really relaxing :)

Study


Did a lot of eyeballing this time.  Maybe by tomorrow morning I'll begin to see all the problem areas...
