I forgot about this topic... keeping it just barely alive, lol.
Working on some more featuring "Matoran With No Name" who isn't a Matoran and actually does have a name by now.
Thumbnail in the corner is being used for reference since I haven't actually done a front and back for his full body like the others.
Wow. BZP is still alive? Huh.
I suppose "alive" is relative... not like 'way back when'
....the body looks a bit too bent, but the detail and textures are amazing!
What do you use to make these?
He's a little asymmetrical, it's really only evident on his face and waist though. Factory error.
Just photoshop, as always.
Man, It's real cool to see your stuff again. Your style still has the same look, just even more developed. Really digging the multiple heartlight thing you've got going on.
I also like how it's not necessarily Bionicle-y, but can still be recognized as such. It's a neat sort of in between. Good work, dude.
Thanks. Pulse irritant isn't a Bionicle related project anymore, but since I originally drew my first four portraits as Bionicle-interchangeable characters the lines are a little blurred. I'm probably going to go back and redraw overtly Toa/Matoran aspects from some of them at a later date. I figure most of the designs are stylistically evolved and used in generic Sci-Fi anyway, which is something I plan on playing on with the story... hopefully successfully.
O...M...G! This is amazing! I love the scratches on the mask and body, showing that he has been through a lot over the years. Love the detail, and it looks just absolutely stunning! Is this all hand drawn on a canvas or is it CG, 'cause this is... wow. It's so awesome, words can't even begin to describe it. Keep up the amazing work. Love it!
I know! It totally looks CGI, doesn't it? I thought so, too. But if you look closely you can tell that it is not. I'm sure he used a computer program for at least some parts of it, though, the shadows and the background.
It's all done on Photoshop, though I might put some of my traditional stuff up some time if I ever finish. Sorry if I ever confused anyone. Hand drawn in this instance will always mean it's drawn from a blank canvas, just using photoshop's built in (and sometimes a few downloaded) brushes. If/when I do some traditional paintings/drawings I'll specify the exact medium. Didn't mean to cause any confusion.
Love it, absolutely awesome. The textures and details are amazing, and the colors stand out very well. One question, though: what's with the operator/slender man symbol on his right shoulder.
Rats, I thought I uploaded the newer one a long time ago. I added some bits to it:
"We've had bears around here before but never in the buildings, so it's a little crazy,
It makes you a little nervous. I suppose that there could be a bear just approaching you right now."
