This one was quite fun. Played around with a more organic style and I feel like I captured the style that Last Oasis has been going for. I have a long way to go but I definitely feel like I improved a little bit here.
Yet another Last Oasis themed idea. If anything, being part of that community does a great job of giving me ideas and motivation to visualize them. For this one I took the general mechanical design of the walkers in the game, and scaled them down to fit on a wind surfer. Using wind power to surf the dunes sounds like a great time. Also, this picture took me about half the time of the rest. I don't know if my drawing is getting any better, but I'm definitely getting faster and more accustomed to using the pen.
Spending time chatting with the community of Last Oasis has become a great way to spend my free time lately. Yesterday we discusses the possibility of adding instruments into the game and that got me thinking about the kind of instruments that might be available in the world the game takes place in. It is similar to a pirate game, in which people build ships and traverse the desert sea, which immediately brought to mind a hurdygurdy, one of my favorite instruments. Seeing how unique everything else is in the game though made me feel like an instrument made for the game should be equally unique. Not only unique, but simplistic, rugged, and durable. Eventually I settled on modifying a Hurdy Gurdy into a pinharp. This I would imagine is an instrument that although may not sound as good, could survive a pretty good beating.
Day 2 I took my drawing from yesterday and turned him around as a template for an idea I had while chatting with the community of a game I'm interested in. Last Oasis, its a cool upcoming survival game themed around very interesting wood and wind powered walker vehicles. Based on the mechanical designs of Strandbeests. I felt like this would be a fun addition to the game.
I recently got a new laptop/tablet to be able to practice 2D art and sculpting with a pen. I am still getting used to it, but my goal is to draw something new every couple days. I'll be collecting them here, to hopefully watch myself improve over time.
This is the first human I've drawn in about 5 years. I never considered myself any good at drawing so this took me a lot longer than it probably should. I really do enjoy the ability to make as many layers as I want of chicken scratch before refining the shapes and lines on a new one.
