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.
And here, my last drawing of the year. I’m quite happy for all that happened on this 2012, all the work, drawings and good time with friends and family, and I’m eagerly looking forward to start the new one, because I feel this is going to be a new opportunity to do more of the stuff that I enjoy. I wish you all a great 2013, full of amazing things and also, a nice end of the year’s party.
Playing a little with some ideas similar to the cartoon explorers of this recent post, I decided to try my hand on drawing some archaeologists. There is always the experimented one, who knows how to proceed on the ruins, while the expert on ancient languages talks to the intrepid one, who likes to get into the most unexplored places.
I have been working a lot lately, between personal projects and work, and I can tell that the 2013 looks brighter, so I’m eager to start it! Anyway, I wanted to send to all of you my best wishes to have an excellent holidays with your family and friends. Hope that all this happiness can extend to the rest of the year and on the new one, too.
About the x-mas card on this post, I wanted to draw something in the “santa claus” mythology, as I did in the last year’s card, but this time with a more “comic strip” feeling into it. I designed two new characters: Christmas elf warrior girl and a weird looking snow creature. You can see the card on a better resolution if you want to.
I have been working on some character designs for a company who wants to have an explorer for mascot. You’ll see that design later when we finish the project, but what I can say is that these human characters has nothing to do with the final art. They are just warmup designs that I did to loosen up a bit and to get into the Indiana Jones mood. here you can find the rookie, the seasoned one and the expert who knows how to hunt.
I been working on this “cartoonist” simple style and I’m really happy with the results. Right now, because of the November’s Day of the dead (dia de muertos) festivities, I decided to draw some “calaveritas de dulce” (candy skulls), that are part of this mexican tradition. I wanted to portray some modern mexican people and a happy skull dog as funny skeletons.
If you want to see more, here is my cartoon calavera character from 2011.
