Title: Hiro Protagonist's attempts at sketching that also doesn't get updated!
Post by: Hiro Protagonist on October 18, 2010, 10:43:59 PM
Heya all, it's Hiro Again! You know, that guy who makes comics when he's around? Well, the same guy is starting to get into drawing... Again! After about, leaving sketching for a few years, I've decided to try it again. I've got quite a few sitting around right now that I've uploaded by request from some of my friends, and now, I'm going to put them here for all to see. Tell me what you think! I'm looking for some constructive criticism, anything's appreciated! :)

And now, enough stalling, time to post some works of mine. :D

Tried my hand at shading, finally. Tell me what you think! :ermm:

Tali'Zorah vas Normandy (http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/4407/sketchtali.png)
You should all know this one after all. :P

Tali with Coffee (http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/7306/sketchtalicoffee.png)
Tali's up to something silly again! She's too curious for her own good! :ermm:

Ysela'Ministry vas RadiKS (http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/4906/sketchyselaconcept.png)
I was attempting to sketch a character for an RPG I am working on, a quarian courier. Naive, athletic, overzealous and happy-go lucky, and not your typical quarian!

Ysela'Ministry vas RadiKS (Updated!) (http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/429/sketchyselaconcept2.png)
I updated that Ysela sketch, added arms and legs, she looks quite happy about that! :D

Ysela's Runner Mod (http://img412.imageshack.us/img412/792/sketchyselarunnermod.png)
An in-depth study of one of Ysela's primary features. These supports and enhancements not only allow her to move again, but also give her extreme agility.

Miri'Seraph vas Hackworth (http://img203.imageshack.us/img203/6702/sketchmiri.png) ( NEW! )
It's everyone's second-favorite quarian engineer with attitude (if you played SoO), Miri'Seraph! :D

Zula'Kelshar vas Ishimura (http://img687.imageshack.us/img687/8003/sketchzula.png) ( NEW! )
A special request by Forum-member Isaac Clarke, it's a Rig-wearing, Plasma cutter-toting, symbol-seeing quarian survivor of the Ishimura!

Legion and the Chief (http://img521.imageshack.us/img521/3493/sketchlegionandspartan.png)
An old one, it's Legion and a Spartan I never finished.

What the Christ... (http://img255.imageshack.us/img255/4656/sketchwhatthe.png) ( NEW! )
WHAT IS THIS, THIS PLATFORM DOESN'T EVEN-

NET Pacification Droid Model-7 (http://img684.imageshack.us/img684/2474/sketchdroid.png)
Some droid for that RPG again, it hang off of the ceiling with its feet, falls down and pounces onto its victims and suppresses them with lethal shocks. Nasty!

NET G-5 Combat Rifle (http://img256.imageshack.us/img256/9480/sketchnetrifle.png)
Another gun drawing, it's for the RPG again. Based on stolen Citadel tech, the NET is attempting to update its ADF forces for a planned invasion. Standard rifle of the standard enemy! :P

Shark Gun! (http://img100.imageshack.us/img100/508/sketchsharkgun.png)
Is it a Mass Effect gun, or is it...?

Robo Protagonist? (http://img801.imageshack.us/img801/3064/sketchroboprotagonist.png)
It's Hiro Protagonist... On a budget. :ermm:

Swarm Beserker (http://img2.imageshack.us/img2/1384/sketchswarm.png)
One of the primary antagonist races in the RPG I am working on, simply known as the Swarm. Towering savage mechanical species, highly advanced, heartless and ruthless, they seek to eventually exterminate all life in the Local Galactic Cluster. Their culture, true name, reasoning, and origination, is virtually unknown. If you ever meet one, most people would tell you to do either two things: Run and shoot, or lie down and accept your sudden death.

Swawm Study (http://img810.imageshack.us/img810/3071/sketchswarmstudy.png)
I decided to look a bit more closely at the Swarm's anatomy, and I tiled them a bit to show off some of their stranger features, such as their two seperatable lower jaws, small arm-like appendages on their backs and three eyes. I'm really aiming for something that is completely alien to typical design, something almost, monstrous, if you will. I'm hoping they don't look stupid or something. :P

Swarm Rifle (http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/3013/sketchswarmrifle.png)
The Swarm are extremely technologically advanced, but their methods are highly bizarre. The Swarm's weaponry and technology appears to be sentient as well, and the soldier and weapon share a symbiotic relationship with the user. Upon acquiring, the weapon uses its 'stock' to impale the user's arm and draw resources and power directly from the user, eventually fusing both being together into one hivemind.

It's Legion again! Huzzah! :3


Enjoy, and tell me what you think! :)

It looks very good. Your dash is light, but I think you shouldn't press your pencil so hard. Good job and practice. :)

Thanks, I draw pretty light though most of the time, I just press hard when I am trying to get the main outline to stand out, but thanks for the tip! :)

Haha, the shark gun is so Dopefish (http://www.dopefish.com/images/sinefish.png).

Also, Ysela's little leg spring things remind me of Chell in portal.

Exactly what I based them off of. :P

Also, anyone notice that she has a gas mask instead of a normal visor?

I like 'em.


Thankies. :)

It feels rather superfluous for a quarian to have a gas mask, their suits already filter all the air they breathe to extreme levels by default.
Although having smaller surface area for the glass covering the eyes is logically a sturdier design for someone expecting to get tossed around a bit... since windows are a structural weakness. XD

That, and that Ysela's not from the Flotilla. The culture she's from is more cyberpunk-ish, and thus dresses in something that shows off tech. The gas mask I thought also made her a bit cute. ^-^

Nice sketches! Now let's see if someday you'll do more and...GASP!...update the OP. :D

Thank ya, I was actually worried they'd look ridiculous or something. :ermm:

Maybe I'm too hard on my own designs. Might be a good thing. :D

Is the Swarm wearing a helmet? looks like he is wearing armor.

Nope, Swarm have a armored appearance, as they're both born with those suits and are completely dependent on their systems to function. Like their weaponry, Swarm also share a symbiotic relationship with the suit that becomes permanent given time. Bio-mechanical, you could say.

Heh, thanks Pure. I'd love to teach ya but, sketching isn't something that you can teach, it just came to me after drawing like crazy as a kid. :ermm:

Oh you. :P
