Since I have this profile now, I may as well start uploading some stuff...

This was for a class project. While the rest of the class did charcoal silhouette studies, I was to find a "more complex" image to convert to purely black and white.

So I picked SHODAN... Tedium ensued...

Micron pen, No. 2 pencil, and sharpie marker.

This image has been reflected down the middle, but the original drawing was mirrored over by hand, each detail of one side copied to the other.

System Shock II ... loved that game.  Still do, in fact.  One of the only games to immerse me so hard.

I stumbled across this image while on a Google image search and, while I don't often comment, I had to this time.

This is just stunning. I got chills looking at the thumbnail, and I'm not sure the words exist to describe how gorgeous the full-size version is. There's something about the way you drew her eyes that reminds me of G1 Transfomers, too, which takes me even further back than playing the original 'Shock in the Nineties.

Well done!

System Shock, the most perfect homage to Alien and Giger there is

One of my favorites of her, when I wander the SHODAN tag in DA. :D I love the eyes and the chromed feeling you've given her face. :D

And I know what you mean about tedium. I tried to do a parody of SHODAN one time, and even in Photoshp the wires were a tedious pain in the damn ass.

Amazing work.  Must have been brain-melting to try and be that meticulous.
