Concept art: Sci-fi soldiers 3

Concept Art

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

Concept art: Sci-fi soldier skeches

Concept Art

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. cartoon comicbook concept art sketches of some postapocalyptic sci-fi soldiersCharacter designs as concept art for future sci-fi futuristic comic book project.cartoon comicbook concept art sketches of some postapocalyptic sci-fi soldiers

Sci-Fi cartoon character designs

Character Design

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.

Last drawing of this year

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.

Character design: Archaeologists

Character Design

cartoon-character-designs-archaeologists-and-explorers-by-Rick_Ruiz-DanaPlaying 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.

Happy holidays!

season-card-cartoon-santa-santaclaus-elf-girl-snow-christmas-x-mas-happy-holidays-2012-by-Rick_Ruiz-DanaI 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.

Cartoon character concepts: Adventure Explorers

Character Design, Concept Art

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.
