Strange Lands by Kipine Strange Lands by Kipine
There were some new, different sort of surfaces in his radar. Not forests or mountains. He recognized the clouds, but there was something more beyond...


I have many ideas, stories and worlds resolving around post-apocalyptic + sci-fi themes, and I want to learn how to paint them. I'm not familiar with painting robots and anything 'man-made', so I don't really know how to do it yet. But since there's a whole new set of things to learn, it makes me excited and actually more motivated to paint digitally! And I hope to share my ideas, stories and worlds with you guys!

I planned on starting small like studying metal and cars and perspective, but then I decided to just jump straight into the deep end of the pool. If I want to paint "scenes" like this, then I'll paint scenes like this, because that's what I enjoy, and I'll learn while doing. Of course I'll do small studies between bigger paintings.

And I'm not sure about those white borders, but it just didn't look right without them?

And ALSO, if you know any good tutorials on painting/designing robots, and city sceneries and just city backgrounds in general, feel free to share them..!

Ooh this looks really good
As for the white borders, I think it'd look really cool with a border that isn't the paint is watercolor or something and doesn't stick to a straight line...?

Voin vain sanoa että tämä näyttää upealta, idea on hyvä ja pieni robotti näyttää niin elävältä että ei uskoisi että "et vielä oikein osaa" piirtää robotteja. Todella hienoa jälkeä, kuten aina!

The little guy is such a cute robot, I don't think this is bad at all, though I look forward to seeing how you improve!

I really like this painting!!!
Maybe it would help to reference in real-life metal objects, but it depends on the metal type!
I really like the way you do the backgrounds... And for city bgs something to keep in mind that there's a lot of light! And when doing cities, i think practicing first with glass, bricks and metal would help a lottttt >:'')
Just saying something that maybe could help... As you know i'm not a professional artist or the best at giving tips, but i tought it maybe would help you! <3 -keep that awesome work Kipine!!!

I think you manage to do robots pretty well already, I think it looks really great! It's impressive >w<
