Epic Sci Fi Soldiers? Yep, we got those.
Yep, I’m still trying to become a recognized artist… While I currently work as a freelance web-developer / graphic-designer / residential-painter… One day I hope to do as well as Sam Kieth, Frank Miller, & Simon Bisley… From what I hear graphic-artists don’t hit their stride until age 30 or so… *finger-crossed*
Creating the Epic Sci Fi Soldier
The ‘Epic Sci Fi Soldier’ took 40-60 hours of puttering in photoshop to create. This digital-art took 40+ layers of sketching to finalize. I overdid it with this one, only because I wanted to see how far I could over-draw a single digital-painting.
One of my favorite techniques used in this piece is the metal texture. If you take a noisy-canvas (black and white pixelation) and add a two dimensional-blur (motion-blur) you can get a great metal effect. I then used layer masks to isolate the metal effect on chosen regions.
Now if I could find a sponsor for the creation of this kind of artwork full-time instead of only during my spare-time…

I’ve always thought of this Zen Robot Monk character appreciating nature / animals. The neon coloring of the subject was fun to play with but I think the final scheme will be more congruent.
This piece was a lot of fun. I have been drawing these robots ‘floating-limbed’ robots for a good while now. I like the freedom of movement a character has when their appendages are not directly attached…
This Samurai Robot Comic is a preview of the series I have begun work on.
OnBot, Samurai Robots and Other Epicness
OnBot takes place in a quasi-Post-Apocalyptic setting. Robots and humans have previously struggled for power against one and other and now stand united against a new threat. All manner of Robot, Animal, Plant, Cyborg, and Biomechanical creature inhabit the world of OnBot.
Stay Tuned for More!
I had a lot of fun with this sketch. It began as pencil on paper and came together so smoothly that I had to flesh it out with digital-airbrushing.
This fella is some sort of clockwork wooden robot, relaxing on top of a forgotten relic (at least it was until you interrupted)
