Here are a few sketches just for fun, trying to practice some different alien monster creatures. I made some bulky and menacing while others more cute.
This character was born as a quick sketch but then it came to me as a sequence of him fighting in a massive futuristic battle so I decided to gave the design a second chance. I started him as a cyborg, with no visual clues of that on the first sketch. Later on, I made him to wear the armor instead of being made of it, making a mix between Ironman and Megaman, two of my favorite metallic heroes. Either way, I need to think if I’m going to do something with it, as the sequence of the futuristic fight is still fresh on my mind.
Here are a few character designs made just as practice to get better with my style. They’re all sci-fi guys, some more spacial and the others more cyberpunk. Either way, here is a glimpse to my art process: The penciled characters and the digital colored final version. Something that I enjoy to do is to change the color line of the artwork and to add a few simple textures to the characters. Somehow I like the rough and crude look they all have.
To change the subject a little and not show only sci-fi soldiers designs, here are a few science fiction spacecrafts. I wanted to design the spaceship as a military vessel who has a battalion inside so I tried many shapes. Some look more organic, as a fish or insect, others are based on some marine’s ships. Also, to get the ideas flowing, I did all in a light pencil line, just making doodles on the go.
Here are some of the sci-fi soldiers in full body, similar as the previous concept art that I posted before. Those ideas are still in development, but I think I’m getting close to the look that I’m aiming for. The first guy has a weapon that resembles a mace, as playing with the idea of different kind of weapons that are not guns. You’ll see what I mean in a future post, because I’m already doing more of this kind of stuff.
Similar to the last post with some sci-fi soldiers concept art sketches, today I manage to finish a couple more. Here you can see that I redo some of the helmets and gas masks, and decided to do new designs similar to that. Next time I would try to draw more definitive concepts of this soldiers, as I already know what kind of setting they are going to be on.
Similar to the last post sci-fi character designs that I did, here you can spot some sketchy postapocalyptic soldiers for a project I’m working on. The idea is to find the shapes and better designs so I can work them up a little for futher characters. The story setting is on a city surrounded by a desert, so is going to be fun to draw all that stuff. All this is for a comic book that I’m working with a friend of mine, I’ll show you later more stuff from this, like character designs and layouts of the actual pages. As you can see, I did many designs with gas masks and patches for the eyes, because they are cool.
Here are some cartoon sci fi style character designs as part of some concepts that I’m doing for fun. They may end up in some of my short stories or not, but I’m glad that they are flowing. I liked a lot the coloring style on these, with a little texture and not that much detail. Also, I love how the original pencil sketch can be seen on the final piece. Anyway, I would show you more designs like this on the future.
