Character design: Fantasy RPG techie old guy

He is the classic character who always fix the stuff and the one who creates the cool gadgets for fighting. He is a techie, a cool inventor and somehow his gear always saves the day.  I wanted to gave him a rough look, as if he is always prepared to fix something.

Character design: Sci-fi Armored Hero

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.Character design of a Sci-fi hero with robot armor concept art in cartoon comic style by Rick Ruiz-Dana 1Character design of a Sci-fi hero with robot armor concept art in cartoon comic style by Rick Ruiz-Dana 2Character design of a Sci-fi hero with robot armor concept art in cartoon comic style by Rick Ruiz-Dana 3Character design of a Sci-fi hero with robot armor concept art in cartoon comic style by Rick Ruiz-Dana 4Character design of a Sci-fi hero with robot armor concept art in cartoon comic style by Rick Ruiz-Dana 5

Artwork: Colored sci-fi characters

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.cartoon comic colored characters artwork process science fiction style 1 by Rick Ruiz-Danacartoon comic colored characters artwork process science fiction style 2 by Rick Ruiz-Dana

Concept art: Sci-fi spaceships

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.sci-fi sketch concept art videogame spaceship shapes 1 by Rick Ruiz-Dana

Concept art: Sci-fi soldiers 3

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.sci fi concept art soldiers for future comic book
