Callsign: Atomic by Dualmask Callsign: Atomic by Dualmask
One more loosening up exercise. Admittedly, this one took a bit more than an hour.

He's the WCL character I've had the most trouble working with artistically for a while, until my friend :icongarypope: helped me with some design thoughts to make him look a bit more interesting.

Had a bit of fun playing around with more of Manga Studio's features when making this one. Hope you dig.

Fun fact: this guy is my son's favorite WCL character. Probably because while we were testing out the board game I was working on, he won rather easily using Atomic in battle (which helped me realize the game rules were skewed a bit too much in favor of the heavy hitters). So I think a decent drawing of this guy will make his day. :aww:

Gregorio Cruz/Atomic is a character in my WEAPON Combat League concept.

Very dynamic image J! I can feel the power emitting from the screen. He is a badass character for real.

Lots of power and energy in that pose- and the colors really work well with it. It's a great picture overall- looks like it could be an anchoring panel for an action comic page.

Thanks! I think this is the best dude I've drawn in a while. It was a lot of fun.

Thanks! It was fun to loosen up. Sometimes tight meticulous inking makes a drawing more stressful than it needs to be.

Oh man, so much! Even though lineart isn't new to me, I still think that is still strange, haha.

Thanks! I'll probably do a few more this way. They're fun and fast.

Thanks! Needed to loosen up in more ways than one...not just with the rough lines but with the posing too. :nod:

Yes I've noticed lately that a lot of my pencil roughs have a lot more energy than some of the final inks...it can be hard at times to transfer that free energy into a polished, finished piece.

He looks so pissed!  I really like this image, nice work!  Though, it seems that the leg hatching may have extended a bit too far up into his crotch, unless this guy is supposed to cametoe...

Oh wow, you're right; I got a little too loose with that specialty brush. Good thing I didn't flatten this one yet...I'll fix that right now.

I'm glad I could help, even if it was just a tiny bit!  Though, as soon as I posted, I realized I probably should have sent that as a Note instead. Sorry!

It's no problem. Not a big deal at all. I'm glad you mentioned it. I decided to get rid of the feathering completely.

Wow, great job on that rear arm! I love the way that effect looks! Nice!

Thanks man! Getting that arm right was really hard. It was easy to rough out but I must have gone through a dozen tries making sure it looked decent when it came time for serious lines. And I felt some replication of the Kirby crackle would be perfect for his atomic energy-based powers.
