your process is really nice cyan, may i ask a little question?

how does gesture works? i find it pretty hard from gesture to desing sketch, do you know somewhere i can learn or study this?
anyways this is pretty nice, cant wait to play this game

gesture is just the main flow.
Basically you can study it by drawing humans or animals. Basically you are doing a ton of quick pose sketches with "stickmans" and try to capture the movement.
It also works if you are drawing frames from 2D animations because the keys usually have really exaggerated and well designed poses.

Shading is where the real magic comes from! ^_^

Huh that gesture thing - do you use it to quickly, like, get "the feeling" of the image/idea in your head onto the "paper". I don't know if this question makes sense to you, sorry. :-P

gesture basically sets the main rhythm of the image. While proportions and forms get refined throughout the process and mostly take out dynamic angles, it serves as a very rough "guideline".
But since this is a metal column it' s not as important as if you'd draw humans or animals with dynamic posing.
However I think it is highly useful, and I am using it for nearly every drawing to roughly nail down the general flow.

I have you know you have taught a fellow (not as refined as you though) artist a new thing. I mostly work with a roughly palmsized sketch beforehand. I will now add the gesture thing to my tools, it sounds really compelling. :-P

cool that it inspired you =D

I already used it this morning to quickly scribble some basic ideas from a dream into my notebook. :-P
