Yet ANOTHER sketch gone awry.
I've never sat and did a serious illustration of Mordecai - my preferred character in Borderlands. He's a grand ol' gaunt guy, isn't he?
I gotta do Roland too. Gotta give my boyfriend some props too. ♥

Background was sort sort of cheesily done, forgive me. But you get extra bonus credit points if you know where he is!

Please keep your comments about the illustration.

Finally after nearly 2 months i featured your Mordecai now on the frontpage of Game Art HQ.com here is the [link] to the article :-)

Beside that, have you read about the latest GAHQ Art Contest about Sega and/or Racing games? Thought that one might be interesting for you as well

Greets and a happy weekend to you :-)

/blush! Thank you for the spotlight!
Your words are seriously too kind... it helps warm this poor artists' soul. XD;;

I will have to see about the next contest - I wasn't really fond of Sega growing up [I did play a couple of really good obscure Dreamcast titles!] but I do need more practice with cars.... maybe I'll do that. XD;;

That's near the guy who is on a turret. Skorge? I know I sniped him to death. My friend collected all the loot though; bastard.

Love your style, and even if you think the background is cheesy, it's easy to tell it's Krom's Canyon. Beautiful work. :D

thankee~ I hope my newest foray into Pandora plays the hommage well. And it's not as cheesy, if you don't count Clap-TP. XD;;

Heck yea! Mordecai feels so badass in your insane style, enough to bust a cap on those darn bandits. :w00t:
