More designs

I've just been plugging away at this project. I didn't get nearly as much done last week as I wanted to, partly on account of Comic-Con but mostly just because of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2. I'm proud of myself, though; my party uses all the races this time and not just, well, Viera.

Anyways, I've been trying to design airships the past couple of days. I'm slower when it comes to mechanical designs; I've spent so much of the last four years drawing organic characters that I'm a bit out of practice.

I've also been doing some work on the girl. She's pretty much finished, so this image may change in a day or two to a full sheet like the one I did for the boy.

Crew cut

Here are three of the crew members. The girl in the middle is the young junior mechanic, and was much more liked by the senior mechanic on her right before she finally grew taller than him. Once again the shortest member of the crew, he's been surlier than usual. The tall chap on the left is the medic, but is usually found filling in as the navigator when his medical skills aren't needed.

Oh captain, my captain

Just plugging away at a couple projects I'm working on. This is the captain of an airship. I want to get the rest of her crew sketched out in a lineup by the end of tonight, though I won't have time to color them obviously. Let's see if I can hold myself to that!

Hey, this isn't an art post!

If you guys haven't seen it yet, you should check out the Prince of Persia trailer they released at E3 this week. It's crazy awesome! Love the designs and the art style, they pulled it off beautifully.

Hot and steamy

I'm working on some steampunk designs. This is a heavy rocket trooper; he's powerful, but he can't actually make it that far before running out of steam, so he's usually slow to the party. His gatling gun has to be cranked by hand, but that doesn't make it any less dangerous.

I'm also posting some early sketches of him. I like the final version a whole lot more, but figured I'd show my progress.

I'm also trying to improve my cleanup lines. Hopefully I'm getting better at it.

Getting closer.

Trying to narrow in on the girl. It's tough to get her just the right age, for some reason. Other designs are up next besides these two.

EDIT: I replaced the image with a slightly recolored one. The old one was bothering me. Also fixed the finger on the middle drawing, which had been cropped off.

I made a preliminary model sheet for the boy. Preliminary, because there's still a lot of work left to be done and he might need to be changed, but I'm pretty satisfied with him at this point.

E-mail is now enabled! I'm not sure why I didn't enable it to begin with, but the situation's rectified.


Concept sketches of the female lead for the same project as the last art post. None of them nail it for me yet, but I'm getting closer.
