Guardian Locke

Last picture for now in this batch.

I wanted to draw Knuckles and then his family but Knuckles came out looking shit and Locke came out pretty decent so I stuck with just Locke. I also hope to do Sabre and so on. :).

I have noticed with this character a lot of art has him with either the scientist look or the tribal look. So I tried combining both! giving him scientist looking clothes with tribal accents to them (Mayan inspired). The symbol on the middle of his belt is a Mayan symbol meaning 'book', seeing how smart he is with both science and traditions I thought it rather fitting.

I also wanted to use this as a warm up, to help get me prepared to draw Steppenwolf for a trade picture :D.

Really nice detail in the patterns throughout the design, that looks like it took patience.

Outstanding work on him, you truly did him perfectly and I love how serious he looks here too.
queenmoreta's avatar
Thanks Draco! <3. I am so glad you like it and I am glad to hear I managed to convey a serious/studious expression :).

Oh he has such a cool attire here. Looks futuristic and traditional the same time. Why couldn't he have worn that instead of that tribe stuff he got later on in the comics?
queenmoreta's avatar
thank you so very much! <3.

Yeah I wasn't a big fan of his Pachacamac style look, I kinda preferred his old look, as honestly bland as it did look. ^^;;. I just didn't want to draw his bath robe looking thing for this picture, so I combined those tribal elements :D. I am so glad you like it!

Seeing Locke in the tribal style was like watching him slowly going insane. If a complete change in attire I rather would have expected that he would suddenly walk around in a self made exo suit like a copy of Robocop. :lol:
queenmoreta's avatar
yeah, maybe that was what I didn't like so much, that it was such a big change, it felt like a totally different character to me. :/.
I mean I can appreciate and understand what they were going for but it just didn't do it for me :/.

I like the route you took! It's a great hybrid of both styles. And you used actual mayan words, YES! DOUBLE THE FUN! Locke looks incredibly studious here, well done.
queenmoreta's avatar
eeee, thank you! I am so glad people are enjoying this as much as they are :blush:.
It was only a random idea I was wanting to try out :D. Knuckles WOULD have been included in on the idea too if he hadn't come out so rubbish looking. So now he doesn't get to join in :P
Miffix's avatar
That's what he gets for sucking! Ack, I hate that though when just one character you're drawing secretly says "screw you no matter how hard you try I refuse to look good for you".... and then you just say "FINE"

It's not the end of the world really as there are plenty of knuckles pictures XD. I like to give side characters more attention.

Yeah that is annoying, I often get moments when I draw Damion and his horns don't always come out right, so I have art of him without the horns XD.
Miffix's avatar
NO - you don't realize there is a Knuckles shortage and this is a SERIOUS ISSUE. Pfft I have characters that are like that. Sometimes I skip wings. haha
queenmoreta's avatar
But but butbut! there is an even worse shortage of knuckles relatives art! I have seen plenty of knuckles art in my travels on the nets XD.

I wonder if it is really us in control or the character causing some influence??? >.>

We need to make them an endangered species and then people will pay attention. And I bet they're pulling strings. Planning mutiny. Net overhaul. WORLD DOMINATION
queenmoreta's avatar
hahahahah, well I think they are already endangered, seeing as they are no longer in the comics XD.

I can picture that actually, XD the brotherhood hiding behind the scenes planning a mutiny >: 3.

This is awesome! The design you gave him is perfect! :D
queenmoreta's avatar
thank you very much Muetron, I am glad people are digging the design :D.

Nice, I love his outfit with all the details…and you did a wonderful job on the coloring hun. ^^
queenmoreta's avatar
thank you very much! I had fun drawing him again, it's been so long since I last drew him!
Sheshin's avatar
You are quite welcome sis. :)
To my knowledge I've never drawn him before. So that would be a new experience.

Yay! Someones finally down a mix of tribal and science with this man!! :dummy: I've tried doing this with his design but your one's such a good design! I love this!! :D I'm happy someone else has tried to mix his design, but I honestly don't care. I just mix his newer appearance with the darker red marks on his head and just give him his lab coat outfit. ^^ 
queenmoreta's avatar
heheheh I am so glad you like it Charlee! thank you so much!. I had a lot of fun with this design.

I sorta wanted to draw his plain, old white labcoat/bathrobe look but at the same time I really didn't, I wanted to try something a little different but not his tribal design as I sorta didn't take to that. I never really got into the later issues that had that design anyway ^^;;.

So yeah I felt like giving this idea a try and I am glad I did :).

oh psssh!! I am sure what you tried to draw still looked awesome! :)
CharleetheCat-Bat's avatar
Exactly, i never really had grown into it either, i feel it didn't suit him all that much. ^^; but I defiantly like this. 

I just like your version better, as I feel my ones didn't seem to mix too well. But thanks! :)
