"After several weeks of traveling day and night through the scorched wastelands
of Rodinia,we finally arrived at the supply depot overlooking the canal.
At last we got a well deserved break from riding the brutal winds of the desert.
As luck would have it, an upper class airship was docked there as well,
allowing us to trade raw materials in exchange for advanced technology.
Once our ship's crew was rested and rejuvenated, we crossed the canal and sailed
onward toward our distention."

Thanks! You too!
They almost seem like they're from the same planet.

Yeah, cool kindred spirit stuff going on.
I hope we will collaborate or at least co-inspire more in the future.
I really like the design of your android!

Yes. I think that would be fun. Let's talk more when I get Dead Tree out the door.

I should be done with most of it by next month. I'll grab you at the point and see what you have in mind. I wouldn't mind doing some pinups of your characters or maybe a one or two page story to start.

Oh dude! that would be awesome!
So you totally seem to get the world.
Your main guys are a human and an android right?

We could cross breed planets.
If you wanted to do a version of your main characters encountering
the tiny blue mutants and the lost warehouse full of sex-bots,
That would be truly amazing.
I don't claim to hold any copyrights to that idea.
It could be totally yours, maybe just give me some cred for the inspiration.:)

I'm am curious, why do you have to do the landscapes or architectural drawings with the very neat crisp black and white more pen and ink style drawings? When often the female centric images are not? How do you approach each that and why for the differing stylistic reasons?

It's funny, the female drawings are like an homage to beauty.
I always start in pencil and work until I feel I've done the model justice.
Then I pencil in her environment. I change and erase until I'm happy with the composition,
then I meticulously ink in my favorite lines.

With the ships and places, I usually just free hand in ink.
Mechanical structure and perspective are pretty easy for me to do on the fly.
But, I do have sketchbooks full of half finished drawings,
spoiled by a bad line.
If I get good one or one I like, Like the Wind Wagon, I'll go to town on it, shading and tweaking every detail
with a ridiculously fine point pen.:)

So cool you asked about that!:)
It's one of my quirks I actually think about a lot.

I was just curious because there is a clear difference. I have seen you use some of the aspects of the landscape drawings in some of you're female figures but not as much so the other way around.
ThePlanetRodinia's avatar
ThePlanetRodiniaProfessional Traditional Artist
Yeah, I should do some landscapes or ship in the super clean style.
krazysidhestudios's avatar
krazysidhestudiosProfessional Artisan Crafter
It would be interesting to see what you'd do if you tried it that way. But I think that in a way you already do that. You do it in and around you're figures. You simply choose to work in a different way when the subject mater lack's that human/female component.
ThePlanetRodinia's avatar
ThePlanetRodiniaProfessional Traditional Artist
Yeah, it's weird how different they are in my head.
krazysidhestudios's avatar
krazysidhestudiosProfessional Artisan Crafter
Something to think about anyway. :)
ThePlanetRodinia's avatar
ThePlanetRodiniaProfessional Traditional Artist
Yeah, Or at least I should think about a way of coloring the more textured ink drawings. I want to get a watercolor effect but sometimes that kind of thing is better to do by hand.
