No Heart Line, No Sun Line

No Heart Line, No Sun Line

I don’t always draw people, but when I do, they look like faux-Wolverines.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My character Zanik in his human shape, which by his own admission, doesn’t look that human on closer inspection. He’s really a dragon (the same one from Fire and Ash) with three horns, which I tried to translate into hair, but it only ended up looking like more like Wolverine’s cut than I wanted. whoops.
His shape isn’t a simple glamour or spell, it’s a shapeshift which is based off his natural scale colors which are red, black, and grey (hence the overly grey color). I probably should have drawn him a little more angry or something – the raised eyebrow look isn’t working for him.

Pressing Developments

I watched Minority Report the other day and I really liked all the touch displays and screens shown in the film. Come to think of it, all the sci-fi stuff and gadgets was what I really liked about the movie (what can I say? I’m a “stuff” person). I’m not much of a fan of Tom Cruise or any of the other actors, but the visual inspiration was worth it.

I’m writing a short sci-fi story already, so I thought it would be cool to sketch up what one of the main characters looked like. I had trouble with the legs so I cheated and borrowed some Minority Report screen ideas even though my story is more of a futuristic robots and post-human exodus to Mars kind of story. It’s not really the most accurate representation of my story now that I think about it, meaning I should probably redo this later.
I used a lot of refs for the overall anatomy (thank goodness for posemaniacs.com) and for the clothes. I still need to practice drawing people in general; I don’t do any real life studies and it sort of shows. Like the last attempt at a full body person, this took three hours in Oekaki.

Assassin on a blimp/flying thing??? Probably should have made her a little more steampunk-y, but anyway, she has a corset, goggles, and several gears attached to her. I used plenty of references from my favorite tumblr reference site: http://art-and-sterf.tumblr.com/tagged/steam-punk
This is probably the first time I really tried to draw people. I spend a lot of time watching videos and reading tutorials to internalize the skills but I’ve never actually sat down and done it properly. Of course there’s still some errors like the crown of her head being too tall and her legs are slightly off, so comments and critique on anything else about her would be great.
