Robotic James by A-Teivos Robotic James by A-Teivos
A sorta long promised thingy for *poseidonsimons
I tried to make Robotic James as 'real' as he can be, although that scramjet engine which goes from the back to the tail doesnt look much realistc anyway, heh.
Anyway I guess its a version "closest to reality" by now XD

Robotic James is ŠPoseidon Simons

For a robot, he's awesome!
Especially as he's a Dragon.
Nice shine and great colours too, great job! :thumbsup:

That has got to be one of the best pictures of a robotic dragon I've ever seen. You have done an exceptional work on the shading and the rendering of the metallic colours here, especially with the shiny areas on his body. Great job! :D

Thanks :) Its true that nowadays clean and polished things (which are shiny) are likely to be connected with 'robotic' stuff :)

This is VERY good, Teivos. :3 I can really learn a thing or two from you about your coloring style. x3 And your highlights are pretty top notch, too. :D

Gah, it's a robot... and it's shiney! > <
What will Saruuk polish now? *throws away the cloth and bucket*

Still, nice design. The wings look kinda out of place though. You should have given him aeroplane wings. =)

Well, I would, but the specifications werent so. Don said he wants such wings, so I said 'okay' ;)

Again, you demonstrate your excellent highlighting abilities. I'm still learning that REAL highlights just involve a lack of shading. ^^; The larger picture of the character is absolutely superb; the proportions border on perfection. All the different parts of him fit together into one body without any one part looking out of place. The posture is also very fluid and realistic, not rigid like many character drawings.

A few extra comments. Notice the folding and shading in the wings that you drew in; that is the same sort of thing you ought to apply to your clothing in my opinion.

Also, I know that markers are difficult in that they make it impossible to create a uniform coating. They always leave behind marks that shows how you shaded, and it tends to detract from the texture of the item. However, I think there might be a way to turn that to your advantage. I look at the way you did the face and think "that's the way to get around it, follow the shape or the form of the item you're shading". You could also really help to create form by using the marks to your advantage. Then I look at the left thigh or the left wing and it seems that you adopted a direction of shading that was different from the original direction, creating false values and forms. Better to stick with the form of the item than get in a hurry to fill in space with a color, especially when you're using markers.

Thank you for the comment!

Interesting... do you consider those wings as a such good example? (in fact, might be true, I'm just not sure if those wings are that good XD)

You have one big point there! A similar thing was said by my arts teacher, but she applied it on pencils.
Why did'nt I stick to it even now? XD Hard to say. Thanks for mentioning it, I will use it next time (I keep saying this a lot. Do I DO so as well? ;) )

I don't know. I like your work and I enjoy analyzing it, and if your skill level wasn't already at the level it's at now when I first starting watching you, then I have noticed improvement.

I felt that the way you drew the wings was a good example of cloth-like material in a slacking position. It looks really nice and goes with the fluidity of the posture, and I felt that it would be a good example for your own reference of how cloth would act in a relaxed position. It certainly looks better than a flat and rigid surface.

Ultimately, what you intended to do will show in your work. Thinking hypothetically, if you intended to "color" something, then it will look like it's colored (and since your intentions didn't necessarily involve creating form, then the piece probably won't reflect that). If you intended to "shade" something with color, then it will probably show more form and you will probably use a bigger palette of colors.

Now in your piece, you do a good job creating form by increasing the amount of your chosen color, and this is really augmented by your expert highlights. However, there are some places that look more like you intended to just color it in and be done with it. I now look at the left thigh and I'm not so sure that the coloring there is a problem, but the left wing still sticks out to me as looking this way.

Still, excellent piece. I've noticed that markers produce far more vibrant colors that colored pencils and also create metallic sheen better.

Well, the greenish hues were caused by a bit different grey... it should be lighter, but its apparently also more towards green o_O
