Training 47 : ???

Well, this one I tried something more fantasy/steampunk/weird, and it turns out pretty cool to me, I love the way it look. I think I should dig deeper toward more cars like this, it look real cool.

Training 46 : Truck

This time, I tried something a bit unusual, and frankly not really efficient, by placing a smaller set of wheels behind the front one, but it look nice at least !

vendredi 27 mars 2015

Training 45 : Classy farmers

This time, I've gone for a more utilitarian style, but with a slight "fancy" twist with the long nose and straight cabin.

Training 44 : More funky Hotrod

After the "Ford"ish 30's Rod from yesterday, now it's more of a 50's style Rod, with useless aerofin and other chunky details.

Training 43 : Restart after a long pause !

After a long drawing pause (I was working on some 3D project that I'll post here soon enough), I decided it was time to restart drawing a bit everyday.
To restart easy, I made a wacky hotrod looking car.

Training 42 : Preparation for a big battle (9) !

This time, more of a ground based Mecha, but armed with several types of guns and canon ! The house "backpack" look fun I think.

Training 41 : Preparation for a big battle (8) !

This time, even bigger ship with more guns and weapons (For my friend Emilien !).

Training 40 : Preparation for a big battle (7) !

Like training 39, this one is focusing a slightly bigger ship, sort of heavily armed and carrying a funny boat profile.

Training 39 : Preparation for a big battle (6) !

This time, I tried to work out the style for bigger ships, and this one is actually a small carier, with 2 fighter attached on it. In a way it look like a flying truck, which I think look nice.

jeudi 5 mars 2015

Training 38 : Preparation for a big battle (5) !

Same as training 37, I'm now exploring styles on smaller ships and units, to get a better understanding of details and overall styling key points.

Training 37 : Preparation for a big battle (4) !

After working on the main ship, now it's time to explore a bit the style on smaller and more nimble ships.

mardi 3 mars 2015

Training 36 : Preparation for a big battle (3) !

This one, it's more like the enemy ship, as for a battle you need at least two facing opponents. One will be the advanced military looking one, and this one will be more of a steam-punk "ish" ships, with houses and woods on it.

More research on this one will obviously come later.

Training 35 : Preparation for a big battle (2) !

Today, same ship as yesterday, but I worked a bit more on the balance, and I think there is something more interesting going on compare to the first iteration.

I guess I will mess around a bit more with it before fixing the design.

dimanche 1 mars 2015

Training 34 : Preparation for a big battle !

I have a new idea for a drawing, but it's going to require a bit of time and precision, so I'm starting by first fixing the design of the ships that I will use, or at least the main ships.
Here is the first one, a big type battle cruiser, primarily use as an HQ and launching tracks.

Training 33 : Flying thingy !

Today's is just about experimentation and combination of different elements and textures.

Training 32 : Ice Cream "Truck"

This one, is heavily inspired by american Ice Cream truck.

The shape is cool, but the lettering on the side is really weird.

jeudi 26 février 2015

Training 31 : One month !

I myself have a bit of a hard time to believe it, but I did stick to my idea of drawing on a daily basis.
Let's try en keep going like this !

Training 30 : Square Utility

This one, is mostly a "useful" one, I drew it with a specific idea in mind :
Being an emergency robots, that can fits into a cube while not used.

mardi 24 février 2015

Training 29 : Mechanical ostrich

This was a fun one to draw, as I tried to apply a bit more depth to the structure, wile focusing on the pose for both heads.

lundi 23 février 2015

Training 28 : Treehouse 2

This one is a bit better architecture wise, even if it's still a bit wacky.

Training 27 : Treehouse 1

First try during this training sessions, a Treehouse. The house could get more detailed here and there.

samedi 21 février 2015

Training 26 : Fish

After the boat-ish looking drawing from yesterday, I chose to draw a fish-ish ship for today.

vendredi 20 février 2015

Training 25 : Nomad ?

Second experimentation today, with a style I use a lot, but combine with elements that are still fairly new to me.

Training 24

I tried something else today, not the best one so far. I feel like it misses arms or something.

mercredi 18 février 2015

Training 23 : Robot !

Finally, after several failed attempts, I ended up with a robot that I like, inspired by the Manga "Gurren Lagann" (Thank you Pierre-Antoine for the inspiration).
Legs are probably a bit to tiny, and the robot's chin maybe a bit too wide.

mardi 17 février 2015

Training 22 : Space dancer !

Tonight, focus on wing shapes and angles. I've put together simple solutions, but I think it give an interesting stance to the ship, almost like it's about to dance.

lundi 16 février 2015

Training 21 : Nothing special

For tonight I tried a sort of inspired "Gurren Lagann" mecha (Thank you Pierre-Antoine), but it was just a massive failure, so I went on for a simple and easy side view of a cow thingy.
The more complex one will come as soon as I figure out how to do it...

Training 20 : Colors !!!

As explain yesterday for my training 19, today's focus was on finishing the colored version of my "bike".
Still a lot to learn, but for a first try I'm quite satisfy with it.

(Click the image to get the full screen version)

Lot more training like this one will come in the futur.

samedi 14 février 2015

Training 19 : Colors !

Long story short : I received a pen tablet for valentine's day, so why not start training right away !
Blue part is "done", grey need some more value.

I tried my best to create an interesting flying bike, this time avoiding to add any light/shadow value.

The final coloring will be part of training 20, but so far color blocking look like this.

Training 18 : City Spaceship

3 times in a raw, today's inspiration is coming from one friend (Emilien !). The idea of training my drawing is not only drawing subject that I don't usually do, but also the way that I do it.

I usually don't draw in perspective because I'm lazy, and in small sizes. This one, is a A3 3D"ish" floating city.

(Click the image to get the full screen version).

Down below you can see the preparation drawing that I did before jumping onto the A3, in order to get a better understanding of how several things would look like.

Although it was fun, it took me roughly 4 hour from first research sketches to final drawing...

jeudi 12 février 2015

Training 17 : Spaceships !!!

Once again, thanks to a friend (again Emilien), tonight is Spaceship night.

Those could be of a small and medium type ship, if attached to a fleet of numerous ships. Probably not well suited for fighting, but surely agile and quick in tricky situation.

mercredi 11 février 2015

Training 16 : Mecha !

After over-using my Houses for a wile, I decided to try on new subject ( thank to my friend Emilien).

More work can be done on the limbs, but so far it look like a Mecha !

mardi 10 février 2015

Training 15 : 46

So, this might be my first bike with the number 46 on it. Very dynamique sequence, so far it look "fine".

This was sort of "easy" because of the mere-non existing perspective. Somehow the bike look tiny on my drawing... More like a 125cc than a 1000cc...

lundi 9 février 2015

"Training 14 & Houses 11" : 2 weeks complete !

Well, this is going well so far ! Two weeks in and I'm still not bored ! Doing those thing in "3D" is very unusual so far for me.

I'll have to start using more complex perspective soon I believe, but this one will do for now.

dimanche 8 février 2015

Training 13 : Tree more Tree

Like yesterday, today's subject is a Pine. I really am getting use to switching between subject that I usually don't draw that much, and I enjoy it !

Today's Pine, is a Stone Pine "Pinus Pinea", with quite a lovely "head" and thin trunk.

samedi 7 février 2015

Training 12

Time to start larger scale I think. This one, more than one tree (one small step at a time).

Those are Scots Pine "Pinus Sylvestris". I have a to find a better way to draw leaves.

vendredi 6 février 2015

Training 11

Well, when I draw people they always end up looking funny. But at least now I start to know why.

Proportion are still getter better, but not great though.

jeudi 5 février 2015

"Training 10 & Houses 10" : Well, it's a boat !

When I draw my usual "Houses", I tend to stay on a flat view. But I really think it could be more entertaining to see it as a volume.
So, here goes nothing, a walking boat with an "ok" perspective.

I really like this one, probably because of the change of point of view. More like those to come now !
Next time, probably a scene with 2 mecha.

mercredi 4 février 2015

Training 9

Well, at least legs are getting "better", but the rest still look funny.

This position isn't the most obvious to draw, but still it's an interesting challenge.

mardi 3 février 2015

More "Houses" : Number 9

Ok, I agree this one doesn't really work as nor look like a house, it's more like a Banana walking truck.

And yes, Banana goes like this in Japanese : バナナ

Training 8

Well, there is still some weird bits, but I'm starting to get a better understanding at how to draw Human body.

For some reason I always make their legs way too short...
