Yowza! Seriously, Violet looks almost professionally done. And by that I mean I've seen professionals who's art doesn't look that good.

Your best one yet, I think! That's a really good style you've got shaping up!

Nice going with the perspective, as well, it's not QUITE there, but it's getting close! Foreshortening is a real bitch.

Looking forward to more, Tes, you're gonna be famous (In CORP) for this sort of quality work.



Thanks!

Yeah, I don't think I got the perspective quite right either, but it was my first time trying an unusual perspective, so I don't feel that bad about it. I'm going to have to keep trying odd perspectives until I get it, foreshortening is my biggest weakness by far I think.

I think I'll have drawn all of CORP before that happens, Sprawler XD. I've got 19 on my list total now, and only 5 of them done.

Hey, our fame is the only fame that's important, clearly.

I've decided to close down submissions for new requests as of now. I'll continue working with the list I have, though as before, I reserve the right to not do any or all of the requests given. However, as a matter of personal challenge, I am going to try to work through the entire list, it just might take a while. I've apparently gotten 5 done in about 2 weeks, so if I manage that rate, I should be done with the list in probably a month and a half or two months, but who knows.

If you missed the chance, really sorry! I may take further ones on a case-by-case basis, but likely if I start doing them again, they'll be paid commissions.

New picture up of Chinook. That background took a long time to draw.

Great work again, marked improvements with each piece. You're really getting the hands down.

There was one problem and it took me a while to figure out what it was and I believe it is the right (left to us) eye. I think it should be a little right and little down for it to be lined up properly. Other than that, it's pretty spot on.

Hm, yeah I can see what you mean. Well it's just another thing to keep in mind for next time. I'm still not totally happy with how the hands look, I probably need to just sit down and draw like 20 in a row.

Thanks for the critique!

Picture of Trouble Maker is finally done. Got to use metallic shading which was a lot of fun, and I think it turned out pretty well.

Hmm, this one I'd like to give some constructive criticism on. As an artist who is also trying to learn anatomy, I know exactly what went wrong on this one, at least from my perspective. You've got a pretty good grasp of the human shape when dealing with tight-fitting clothes, but I don't think you're there yet with armor and bulky clothes that obscure the body underneath. I have similar problems. My usual solution is to draw a general outline of the figure first, then draw the clothing around. I don't actually know if that's how professionals do it, but it usually looks a little better afterward than just drawing the armor by itself. Of course this method takes longer and requires more erasing, which makes me think maybe there's an easier way.

MINE! *Grabs the Trouble Maker and runs away with it*

... Or not. But I think that, for pretty obvious reasons, I like particularly like this one, even if all your work is lovely. I can't come up with much of a comment or criticism (I don't think I'm experienced enough to spot all the details and such...), but I can at least give a word of encouragement, like probably others will do. The least I can do, so keep it up!

Excellent work on the reflections! While I'd repeat Reals' comment, I actually don't think its too valid here because, iirc, Trouble Maker's suit is only armoured in the places where it it is appropriately armoured in the picture. I think it's a pretty tight suit around the arms and the hip armour and shoulderparts along with the armour around the chest sells it rather well.

Actually that is how I draw figures, I start with a "skeleton" structure, then I "flesh" it out into a basic unclothed human form, and then add clothes (or in this case armor). It is my first time drawing power armor though, so I wasn't expecting to get it dead on.

I think the biggest problem is the crossed arms, I'm not even sure if power armor can cross arms like that, haha But yeah, like Sprawler said, the arms are intentionally less bulky because that's how the reference picture looked. Course that's because CO can't do bulky power armor arms very well, but I didn't want to take too many liberties on Aerostream's design.

Picture of Soldier Boy is done. Tried to do a "hot/cool" shading, also dropped the background out entirely of this one and just made it transparent.

The style is remeniscant of the old art deco art from the 20s 30s and 40s. Very appropriate for SB, I think.

Totally. I could see a whole SB comic being done in this style. Or at least the flash-back sequences. Nice one, Tes.
