METAL GEAR KAPPA pre color art by Dtronaustin METAL GEAR KAPPA pre color art by Dtronaustin
I知 making a lot of line art to play around with digitally coloring on the computer. I wanted to color up that Metal Gear Kappa I made a while ago but when I went back to the original drawing I felt I needed a cleaner and more detailed version of it, so I redesigned it and made some tweaks for this drawing. Should be fun to color I think. I知 really toying with the idea of doing a digital style camo, but I知 not sure I can pull it off successfully yet. I think it would be really cool but it also sounds like a real pain in the ass to do. I guess some day.

So how exactly did you learn to draw mecha so well? I'm practicing drawing myself but I'm not familiar with proper drawing techniques.

It's just something that comes with a lot of time an practice. I love mecha and always have since I saw the big robot anime as a kid or the real robot series like Macross. You just have to figure out what works for your drawing style and keep drawing.

That's probably what I need to do. My issue is I become frustrated with myself and disappointed in my own abilities to the point it becomes difficult to continue working on the projects I set for myself.

You're welcome!

I'm actually working on a fanfic where I created two Metal Gears for it, only problem is I'm a terrible artist.

First, this is badass.
Second, don't be sacred of a digital camo if that's what you wanna do.
-Paint a camo pattern on a separate layer, then mess w/ the pixelate filter in Photoshop > mosaic.
Once you've got a pattern you like, then just lay into the planes of the mech w/ correct perspective.
Put this under a shadow layer + highlight layer, w/ line art set to multiply up top, and you're all set...

I like it a sh*tload!

FYI- crystalize filter is also good for making geometric camo- the kind I always use.
Maybe easier than digital style (as an alternative) because it has no true up-down orientation, and can lay in down any which way.

Good luck!

I'm glad you think so man :w00t: MGS4 such a great game! Finally all my questions were answered. I remember when I was in college and the first one came out and one of my friends convinced me to buy it. Been a huge fan to the games from then on for sure ^^
