April 3rd Thursday - Lucy the robomechanic

    @Jiří-Kůs Oh it's great that you're putting them in Lucy's workshop, that really helps to tell the story. Perhaps working on the gesture of the little girl would help to explain that the robot is hers and she's really worried about it, like maybe she's on her knees with her hand on his shoulder, looking worried or crying even.

    Your robot design is great and I'm sure you will make a great piece out of this, just got to keep going 🙂

  • @Jiří-Kůs The sketch looks really cool, and this can become a great piece! You have placed your vanishing points quite close and this makes it for a fish-eye kind of look. I quite like it actually (it adds drama), but you will get some perspective "weirdness" probably when you refine it - I mean deformations in the objects close to the viewer. That said, I think adding something in the foreground would help the composition. It will be a good portfolio piece in any case!

  • So, I have finished the sketch and now I am trying to separate the foreground and background. The girls head is too big compared with the Lucy, but I will fix that in a later phase I guess. I usually come back to these things when I am happy with the general look and merge the layers to paint over. Anyway. I always liked how people use gradients so I tried it myself...and I really like how it looks 😃 What you think? I guess I will keep it in this color range and just bring some more colours to the focal point. I am really afraid about the light and I am sooo not sure what to do with it... I will have to think about it tomorrow 🙂

  • @Jiří-Kůs Love the gradient! Are you going to ink it, like in a comic book? It would actually look quite cool with a graphic treatment...

  • @smceccarelli Well thank you very much now I have a dilemma 😃 I have to admit I really like art by Sergi Brosa or Josan Gonzalez, but my inks just tend to suck so I get used to cover my lineart with paint. Maybe I should do two version to see if I am not on a wrong path 😃

    This is so amazing! I love the tones and colors. I think it would look great as is with some shadows and inking. I can't wait to see it finished!

  • SVS OG

    Really nice. The right foot (or my left) seems funny a bit and something with the waist but overall, I think it's awesome.

  • I decided to stick to the plan, and maybe try to ink it some other time. At this stage I guess I will start to paint over, add details, and fix stuff 0_1461103933659_LucysWorkshop4.jpg

  • Love it, cool!

  • Well, still not finished...details details details...!
    I should learn to not care about details...

  • Looks awesome so far, good work.

  • Looks great. Great use of perspective and so many interesting details.

  • Wow, it really has been over a year ago I started to work on this thing! Anyway, I finally got back to it starting with major overhaul of lineart 🙂


  • Sorry guys for this strike from the past, but I just need to close this chapter. Finally finished this thing! and it took me only a year 😃 0_1503869747031_044_mechanic_960.jpg
