Missionary man by AxelMedellin Missionary man by AxelMedellin
I love retro SF... I love technology that looks ancient (now that's a contradiction)... this, is what I think an astronaut would have looked like, some three centuries ago...

Brilliant concept! The Geek in me was THRILLED the second I saw this rendering! (The same sort of thrill that I still get seeing some of Kirby's best spacesuits/robots/space gods)

I also like the ancient look. There something interesting about the look. It's completely a new look.

I'm hoping to draw stuff like that someday. Though thinking Sci-Fi I'm thinking about a sleek translucent white design.

I think I'm going to make some more poor sketches of it. Probably try and upload it later.

A Sci-fi battle suit. It's solid white with blue linings that surround it... the design... hmmmm... It's made for humans but has a very.. other-worldly feel to it.

I hope the Begining Drawing mini-course I'm going into will pay off. At least enough to get me started. I usually have the most trouble with the beginings. I tend to do just fine once the start is out of the way.

Wow, rhar sounds like something cool! I really hope you succeed and manage to throw it together! It's true; the first step is the hardest, but once you break that barrier it's a real wild ride!!

I still have a ways to go.

I took a beginners art: and I've gotten to the point where it's just a matter of practice.

I actually came out with a couple pretty good looking drawings.

I just have yet to start again.

Hahah. They're charcoal and too large for the scanner.

I'll see about it: but it looks like it's gonna be difficult with the ones I have.

Stick with any course you can grab, man, anything helps... I'd love to have time for studying some more live drawing and such, but there's always work to do...

I'll be really curious to see your designs... I'm more into the retro look because I love textures (besides, I can't do sleek, I always have to add details, my fractal mind)

Best

Heheh. Cool.

There are plenty of ideas. The sleek design has evolved a little. By now I'm starting to develop a character. The Exodius. The alias of a guy in very powerful and strange armor who has this belief which he bases all his actions in combat on: "It's not enough to win. You want nothing left of your enemy but a skull nailed to a fence post so everybody understands the cost of crossing you."

But now I've started getting some other designs in my head. Stuff I thought up earlier but never even tried to create. They are more of a clockwork design. Lots of brass, decorative silver and gears and glass displays. In fact: one is already in there. Heheheh.

Yeah. I find retro looks fairly interesting too. I'll tell you when I remember absolutely what retro is. All I remember is that it's a technology based design and is not futeristic. Anyway: if you want to see some of my designs, there are a few poor sketches in my scraps area.

hehe, that helmet is massive!

isnt it sweet how you can draw things that are completely unpractical (huge helmet, big heavy neon's on the back) yet they look so nice... thats what i love about both sci-fi and fantasy-- you can pretty much get away with ANYTHING.

as usual good amount of detail and diffrent-looking textures...

would you mind elaborating your coloring technique? i know most techniques used by people are basically the same, but its the little diffrences and trick we need to learn from.

Hey, there...

Not a big trick, well, I don`t think so... I do all the coloring in Photoshop, with a round brush with some transparency (80%, 70%), so I can layer the color as if it were watercolour... then I treat the drawing as if it were traditional painting, I don't use the gradients, filters or airbrush tools... kinda backwards of me, right? Some times I use a custom brush for some texture, but that's mostly it... my only rule is trying to make it look the less computer-made possible.

Take care...

Steampunk, eso es... lástima que lo echaron a perder con la de Wild wild west y la de la Vuelta al mundo en 80 días, ya ni quien quiera ese estilo... lástima...

Te portas...
