i haven't had much time for personal drawings lately. i've been slowly working on this piece for the last month or so. i am planning on making a colouring tutorial for it although i am not sure how well i'll be able to explain my process..

inspired by some of the decorative military uniforms; some references used

finally, my last diploma piece.

i've been getting tired of drawing young people all the time and i thought it would be a great opportunity to get some practice at mature looking characters. it took a while to get this one to look alright (though i had more problems with the body than with the face) but it was a very enjoyable experience.

third of seven works for diploma project at my school.
i am going for fantasy with slight sci-fi elements - a world where technology exists side by side with magic. the designs portray sample classes for a mmorpg type game, elven/demonic hybrid race.

third is the berserker with a mecha arm.

the expected date to complete the designs is october 2012. around that time i will come back to each of them and make final edits, which is when i might change the files for these pieces.

this time i wanted a character with contrasting elements, so i mixed a lithe body frame and light outfit with powerful arms and a heavier weapon and leg armor (for the sake of those who insist on realism in designs, feel free to imagine the metal elements are made of graphene or something..).
this character can fight with exes, lighter daggers or claws alone.
big golden eyes and a long striped tail (helps with keeping balance) were inspired by lemurs.

this work is one of my diploma pieces. i have reached the minimum number of works but i am planning one more character to make it more even.

fourth of seven works for diploma project at my school.
i am going for fantasy with slight sci-fi elements - a world where technology exists side by side with magic. the designs portray sample classes for a mmorpg type game, elven/demonic hybrid race.

fourth is the gunner with a variation of a plasma gun and slightly aquatic theme (i'm not 100% satisfied with her but it's time to move onto the next design).

the expected date to complete the designs is october 2012. around that time i will come back to each of them and make final edits, which is when i might change the files for these pieces.

second game character design class project this year. this one needs to be finished as well but i wanted to post something on my dad's namesday so here it goes~
i'd like to add that the theme of this pic has nothing to do with it, it was just the only pic that was close enough to being finished lol

wszystkiego dobrego tato! jestes najlepszy!

so, like i mentioned, this pic still needs to get touched up (same as the other one... i have that one pretty much done but there is still one part i need to fix. expect the update soon though)

this time it's a semi-monster character (possibly a summoner?). that means the hands are huge on purpose. i'm sure i'll still get at least one comment about them lol~

enjoy^^
