Oh yeah that would be tedious as hell to draw all those

Also I know this when you would do a critical it would show an X-Ray of their bones and the sword... What's the name again? this game was so cool.

Thanks for the kind words, dudes. Will try to keep bettering the quality of my art.

And hmm...I think some of the Mortal Kombat games did that. Or maybe that was just the commercials.

Believe it or not I painted all of that without selection tools.

It was...a process...to put it lightly.

Dumb question, what would one do to utilize selection tools in creating that? Shave lines to be straight or something?

so you can block in entire shapes accurately without bleeding into other parts of the painting

Sadly the applet I did that drawing in doesn't have a functional select tool

Anyway: a quick 1:30 concept for a Wasteland Warrior

I use it for crisp lines, or when im using a soft brush for those nice gradients.

For some reason using selection tool to block in colors and fills makes me grumpy. I hate doing it even though it's faster than coloring it by hand.

I have always found your artwork to be awe inspiring.

the speed / sketches / colours / shapes and dynamic angles.

Loved every moment so far!
