Making lines was trickier than expected, since a good number of things were already wrong in the semi-sketchy pencil version ([link]
). Then I got detail-obsessed and added more markings. ^_^ Still, gotta have fun with every piece, you know? A colored version might come in the future, at which point I'll scrap this and the original.
Thanks to Chris Vickers' mecha lineart ([link]
) for inspiring the 5-minute background, and more importantly, helping me visualize necessary perspective fixes. He's an amazing original artist with quite a skill in precision coloring. I think a lot of aspiring gearheads could learn a thing or two from him...
