Fallout 4



Every year I draw a picture for my brother as a gift (usually both Christmas and birthday, but sometimes I can only manage one of the two). For his Christmas present last year, he wanted me to draw a Fallout 4 T-60 EXO power armor helmet. He texted me a bunch of references, but I was way too busy to do it for his Christmas gift, so I did it for his birthday instead.

Two firsts in this picture!
1) This was my first time using tube watercolors. They're starter kit-type watercolors (literally, they came in a kit that I got from Grandmother for Christmas) but I like them a lot better than the watercolor cakes I've tried using before. I was able to get pretty decently-dark (pigmented) color by simply not using too much water. Two layers was enough to get a decent black. The bristol paper did pretty well, too. It certainly curled (you can tell in the photo), but not horribly, and it didn't really wrinkle.
2) This was also my first time drawing/painting anything like this ;v; This type of thing is totally not my forte haha;;

One thing that particularly annoys me is that the neck/shoulder piece things are off-center... It's more noticeable zoomed out. And the pieces connecting to the mouth part aren't identical. orz

Burning letters because the game is post-apocalyptic and I imagine lots of stuff gets shot, burned, or blown up in the game as you play...
