    How is there not a "post your shitty unfinished drawings here" thread yet? Whatever, I'll start it.

    Anyway here is a map concept drawing thing I started 5 years ago and never got around to finishing.

    [​IMG]

    It's one of these, but all beached-like and rusted to shit. I want to draw a power takeoff running from one of the hatches and a bunch of resistance milling around on the beach and on the deck for scale, but I am terrible at drawing people so it hasn't happened yet.

    Your turn assholes.

    reserved for incoming dump

    all of my art is basically unfinished sketches anyways

    e: technically all my pieces are finished products that could just use more polish

    i only have one actually unfinished piece
    [​IMG]

    for an Eclipse Phase game set on a desert exoplanet-- meet Glaston Steele.

    This was supposed to be a full party sketch but the game died out long before I got around to finishing even the first character.

    I always wanted a coast map where one of the resistance "towns" was a beached/partially sunk large ship or submarine.

    Here's a better source of info on the Hotel boats by the way

    The concept came from me sperging the fuck out about K-19 (having just seen the movie at the time, which by the way doesn't do the Soviet Navy much kindness and rather pissed off K-19's actual crew) but the Hotel class has that cool as hell not-quite-modern look to it. If it was a beached Victor or something it just wouldn't have the same feel to it.

    The idea behind this was that it was kind of lost in the chaos of 1990-91 and dropped off the radar since '90s Russia was too poor and screwed up to salvage it. The Combine wouldn't bother with a plainly beached and rusted up sub, so it just kinda sat there rusting. A couple resistance scouts found it, a second scouting party brought some techs out who realised the reactor was still running even if very little else was, and so a camp sort of grew on the dunes nearby as techs started trying to patch her electrical systems up and stop the reactor from trying to murder everyone and the White Forest folks pilfered the rocketry parts off the missiles.

    In real life, I think all the Hotel boats have been scrapped now. K-19 herself was one of the last to go.

    e: The Aral Sea would make a fucking baller setting for resistance camps also.

    Yeah I'd love to see an Aral Sea map but I think functionally it'd be too flat and coverless unless the amount of ships there was vastly exaggerated.

    RIP



    Eh, you could have camps in the (formerly) coastal towns, then just have the deadpan and wrecks between them as some sort of hellish desertified scavenging ground

    Great bit of reading, covers more perspective techniques then you'll ever have to use, and even includes a few clever cheats, tricks and advice to help with awkward skewing, comic book panels and how to shift the lines to rearrange the focus of a scene.


    edited into op: technically all my pieces are finished products that could just use more polish

    bonus (technically finished) sketch of "Mother Hen," currently called "Kit" on the server that hasn't gotten onto the forum yet.

    Your stuff's got a nice "Rick and Morty" vibe to it. I've been trying to get a little toony with my art but I wind up adding way too many details afterwards, sucks dog.

    itt ross shows me up by drawing 80x better than i could ever manage

    Haha thanks. Normally I prefer drawing landscapes and places and stuff so they actually end up looking like that when i do character sketches. (plus the fact that my best friend and myself used to draw comics since we were kids)

    pretty cool, dast.

    If you don't mind a little art advice, check the spoiler!

    as a rule of thumb, when doing hash coloring/shading, you should lift your instrument off the paper to avoid squiggles. It's up to you though; there are many different ways to do hashing, but they're generally used to represent different textures (eg. weaves, wool clothing, curls)

    That or smudge, which tends to look less flat but is harder to do precisely without practice.

    i'll let you in on a secret: 90% of things i draw end up scratched out, screwed up, and thrown into the nearest bin because they're garbage

    long, long ago i was going to get a friend to make a custom model for me so i'd have to spend less time tinkering with my poses in photoshop, but my character has since been rather heavily retconned and developed and now wears totally different attire, so i decided to rework the old (unfinished) character sheet to reflect this. started ~an hour ago, so far i've done her jacket with just a few minor details left on it:

    [​IMG]

    originally i was going to have her equipment all on as well but if anything i'll have a separate image for it, because she's usually got so much shit hanging off her it covers up most of her actual clothes. obviously i didn't draw her face, i just found a close-enough photo and did a little tweaking, plus most of the hair. background image is the hl2 female citizen sheet which i'm using for proportion reference since i'm hopeless at getting human figures right from memory

    said friend is busy as fuck doing contract work for various studios and mod teams now so this is more for the sake of it than any constructive purpose
