Ink Sketches - Darth Revan

Unread postby WeiWenDi » Mon Jun 22, 2009 5:43 am

It's Darth Revan! ... in black ink and pencil, as before.

I sketched this specifically as a header for my new blog, Blade of Revan. Lightsabre light reflecting on black cloth is not an easy effect to replicate in pen, and the hatching gets a little messy in places - I think the reflections on the metal - particularly on the mask - worked far better in that regard.

Some more blood, Chekov. The needle won't hurt, Chekov. Take off your shirt, Chekov. Roll over, Chekov. Breathe deeply, Chekov. Blood sample, Chekov! Marrow sample, Chekov! Skin sample, Chekov! If I live long enough... I'm going to run out of samples.

Legie wielding a Rosenkov M-97 Viper (mechanical pencil #2 on smooth heavy tablet paper). Geth armour is fairly easy to render in pencil, but the (tubes? wires?) were a royal pain in the butt. Wasn't quite sure how to do the stereotypical geth flare with Legion's 'eye'; I decided the lightsabre effect I used above was too visually confusing, so I settled for lightening the area in front of it. Also, geth knees confuse me. I think I did fairly well on shading and texture, though.

I welcome all praise, critiques, concerns, helpful tips.

EDIT: Signed and dated my work.

Thanks, fly_west!

Yeah, I like that sketch too. My artistic muse seems to be BioWare games...
