Default New Warrior Girl Drawing WIP

I've been away from the forums for a bit, but now I'm back. Though while I was away I started drawing again.

I figure we need something fun and old BG to talk about so rather than wait till I'm done, I'm gong to illustrate the steps in the creation of a Warrior chick!

http://tommy.elitegamer.com/post/warriorchick0.jpg

This is the first initial rough. I haven't drawn with paper for some time so it came out AWFUL! The head is too big and disjointed from the body!!!!

I used a blue colerase pencil.

okay... so that sucked. So I scanned it and decided to rough out some parts in photoshop.



Head is better proportioned, and got some flow in the new arm.

But the whole drawing was kinda stiff and boring! Basically she is just standing there. Plus I had the bright idea I should probably get back to working with pencil rather than photoshop.

So I started again from scratch, and gave some tilt to her hips and ribcage.



Now we got some character in the pose!

But then Tom goes changing his mind about using pencils and scanns it BACK into photoshop.



From there I flesh out the drawing some more. The face btw is also in photoshop. For some reason I didn't use red. I'm also learning how hard that warrior helmet is to draw upsidedown and at a funny angle.

I added more curve to her legs so it wouldn't go in a straight line from hip to foot.

I also moved her thumbs up to the side so it would be more visible and stand out more.

I decidedher right arm is too weak. It should be more energetic. So I raise it higher. I also spend time getting a decent face going.

And damn the red ink!

(more to come later)

I did ALOT of work. I spent alot of time getting the boots and helmet right.

The boots btw are Sidi Full Bore, Motorcross boots. I'm lucky that they are on the web.
http://www.classicboots.com/moto/fullbore.htm

I like how its looking sofar.

and repcisg- I think she's probably taken!


---

Okay now I want to take in some feedback on what I should do. I'm debating if I should add a gun and holster to her. If I do it the gun will end up on the right side cause she is a left handed.

Do you think I should add a GUNBELT? or leave it out?

I changed her face a bit. Also decided to make the raised hand in more stronger position. I want her to say something like "Keep the faith!" So I figure her hand should be more emphatic.

Also did some jacket trimmings and the other hand got reworked.

The post looks a bit standard... but I'm goig to see where this goes.

The next step is a BIG one. I'm going to redo all the lines to get a smooth line quality. The result really makes a big difference.

She's looking really great Thomas!

Gunbelt, hmmm. they never flew without them.... but I don't want to block the helmet are you sure she's a lefty? I like how the hand hip and helmet are on her left side. The jacket & boots look great.

Does she look like Brie? I like Brie, she was very very pretty. But I didn't have her in mind when I created this.

Jewels- The gunbelts tended to hang kinda low. So I don't think there would be much of a conflict. The belt is worn on a diagonal slant, and the gun holster actually starts several inches below the belt. There is a band of fabric connecting the holster to the belt.

Supposedly there should be that oversized calculator on her right leg (thigh). I could add it. Its rectangular and blocky. So its easy to draw. Higher up should be that language translator Apollo used to talk to the Ovions.

Thomas she kind of reminds me of Leanne Hunley who had a small part on TOS Galactica. Hunley latter starred in Dynasty.

Actually its not finished. The events of Galacticon made me roll her out before I have done the shading.

But I am thankful for the complements!

I love it! and if I see you at the con can I buy a copy of it?The only other "Galactica" artist whose work I admire is Matt Bush and he tends to draw from photographs.Good work,but still.This is a original work of art and well done.Say maybe "Galactica" could be done as a animated series?Nope been done before(Star Trek,Ghostbusters,Stargate,Bttf):laugh:
