This is not related to my projects. But I needed a break from them for today.

She's one of my all time faves. :D I'm quite proud of that one...probably more so before I colored it.

Your pencil shading is always good- it's clear and readable, while adding form and mass.

Glad you like! There's something about illustrating with just a pencil that's incredible therapeutic sometimes.

Love that sword and the skimpy clothes you come up with!

Thanks! I say just do what you can, when you can, and draw what you really want to draw, not what other people want you to draw or what you think others will like. Just do what you love as much as you can.

*cracks whip* ;)

Actually I think it is healthy to take a break now and again rather than start to feel creative burn-out, but can I suggest you try and structure the breaks as a reward? Like, even if you feel you don't want to work on a project, make yourself do a half hour even, then "reward" yourself with a non-related sketch. That way you can always point to some work on your projects and say "I accomplished this today" instead of ever feeling guilty and like you lack focus.

I guess that's not a bad idea. But I made plenty of progress the night before I drew these. Built some background objects for the game and finished inking a comic page.

Looking good here, DM!

Though I can't help it, I think the one on the left looks like an Amazonian Kitty Pryde. ^_^

Thanks for sharing!

Man, I love your designs ^^ If I can only borrow your brain :P

So how did you come up with them? Before or after you started sketchin??

Someone out there "has" to come up with an armor design that is actually usefull in battel :P

So glad you like! :)

Anyone can design functional, traditional armor if they really want to...there's loads of reference out there to take inspiration from. Hence why so many artists like myself do the fantasy thing--realism, believability...these things are boring! And really, that's all it is. A woman with curves like that and a sword as long as she is tall? Of course it's not realistic, but it's eye-catching... at least I hope it is. :)

As for how I come up with this stuff, well, I don't really give it a lot of thought (hence why I generally refer to girls like these as "random practice babes"). The process goes like this:

1. Envision a silhouette of a figure in my head (for instance, the one on the right just started out simply with an insatiable desire to draw a girl with those sleeves...that was all I had in mind)
2. Rough out the silhouette
3. Start adding details randomly, just slapping down what looks good while figuring out "creative" ways to cover up the naughty bits with attire. I'm not above drawing nudity, but it's a rarity for me.
4. Rinse and repeat

I could draw girls like this every day if I wanted to... but then I'd never get any real project work done. =p

lol, I remeber a gamer commenting on how unrealastic these sorta armors are (from other games).

I kept telling him that there isn't an armor out there that can handel the unrealastic weapons they're against, so there is no point :P

So you wanted to draw one part, and just added the rest to fit. That's an intersting approcah.

"4. Rinse and repeat"

I don't think they're wearing enough to do that :P

Thanks for sharing man ^^ love your work.

If it were me, I'd combine the top with sleeves that the mage is wearing with the loincloth/belt and the boots that the warrior is wearing into an extra super-awesome outfit! :la:
