Sketch-knights design by mayshing Sketch-knights design by mayshing
:w00t: My webmanga related to this picture: [link]


I decided to study the design style of a couple of MMO games and practice, taking my old designs and update them.

Doing illustrations is so relaxing....

Meidum: pencil and photoshop CS3 with reference to Guild War 2 art book, and stock photos

Time: 3 hours so far

I Really like this piece. And the fact that you used a reference from GW is crazy, because the style they use is crazy itself, and you've managed to match it almost perfectly! Really, an amazing job.

its slightly more than regular sketches, its an unspoken rule that pure sketches doesn't do well around DA.
One has to present it.
This is concept art style sketch. lol~

i am a believer in that, there's so much more i can learn.

Oh, in case you haven't seen it, i used these to level up:

I just re-read it, and applied it to character illustration with some references, it's the same principle.

This one i go back to it from time to time, it keeps me in check.

Cool that you are revisiting old designs. Have you looked at traditional parade armour from the 1500's? The armour made by Filippo Negroli and his brothers is amazing and makes more sense than most MMO designs.

What I love about this is that it's so futuristic yet so not... it's somewhere between a knight and a space marine. And it inspires me to go write something. Beautiful work and amazing use of sepia tone!
