Ikkar's Random Art and Concepts
« on: February 27, 2016, 08:54:23 PM »
Hey CM, I finally got around opening an art thread. It's not much, but please enjoy.

Yes, you can critique the art. I won't cry....much  :'(  ^-^



My first submission is a concept for the Radiant Blaze story I'm working on.



This is the head profile of an eagle combat-type envoy (angelic being in the story world).

Combat-type envoys are spiritual beings. They're not made of flesh and blood. They are living energy (hence the blue sketching) wearing armor.

Combat envoys have two modes to fight with: one is their animal-esque form, the other is a form based on military vehicles.

I got this crazy idea by combining these three ideas:



The golem concept from a game called Darksiders, the real-world bald eagle, and the real-world F-15 fighter jet.



No full body art for both modes yet. It's really, really, really difficult drawing mecha animals. >_<

Neat idea! Re mecha animals - have you seen the old Zoids anime? That might give you some ideas.

Thanks Sarah! I can't believe I forgot about that series! Zoids will help a lot with references.

@Sarah thanks!

There's so many cool mecha wing designs—I can't choose! For now, the "bladed bits" wing design seems to fit.

I agree, that does seem to fit given the refs you showed us. Looking forward to more!

The full body concept is finished.  :begplz: It was very difficult. I'm gonna go back to drawing human characters for now.

This is a redo on my OC Neil.



This is a practice drawing of a random female character.

Configured the software and tablet to my personal preferences. Smacking my head over for not doing it sooner. Watched tutorials and practiced plenty times over with mistakes.

Here are the results:
