Yet another of the many illustrations I've done lately for the sci-fi RPG book "Tigres Volants", and again one of my favorites.

Full digital, no paper no pencil.

by "full digital, do you honestly mean that you made this on the computer?

Yup, from the rough sketch to the last shadowing.
I find it easier to do a proper clean work while on computer than with traditional painting. I don't like messy things.
Hope you like it the way it is! ^^

I hope you dont mind if I find your story hard to believe, I've drawn on the computer before, and my final project looked worse than what a kindergarten student would come up with

but I do like it

Erh...maybe because drawing on the computer is my job, or maybe because I work with a wonderful Wacom tablet, or maybe because there actually exist hundreds of very talented artist who only draw and paint on the computer?
This is a 100% true. I am very confused by your denial. o_o

But anyway...thanks.

I understand. But, no offense, you should try to learn more about digital painting before criticizing digital painters.
Try to search "digital painting" on Google or whatever, go see the images that pop out, and open your mouth in perfect awe like I do when I contemplate the art of the ones far better than me.
It's just my job, but for some of them other artists, it's art and pure bliss.

and I respect that, and I'm sorry that I offended you :(

I was more perplexed than offended. It's okay I suppose. :)

C'est mon préféré de la série aussi, il dégage vraiment un truc mystérieux et inquiétant. <3

Merciiiiiiii!!

Le truc qui me plait le plus dans ce boulot (outre le fait que je me sois éclatée à dessiner - ce qui ne m'était pas arrivé depuis longtemps) c'est que le bouquin en lui-même est bien classe. L'ensemble des participations des autres dessinateurs est de bien belle qualité, le montage du texte autour des illus' est super soigné, et mes dessins super bien mis en valeur. J'ai rarement été aussi fière d'avoir participé à un bouquin, alors autant le dire. :3

Really cool and oddly creepy, even though it's a fairly benign machine. Reminds me of a short story I read a long time ago called "The Ruum."

Thanks!
I'm quite pleased that it succeeds in provoking some strong emotions.
It was my first actual illustration of this type (post-apocalyptical universe and mean robot), I hope I won't shy from the task and draw some other again in the future. ^^
