yes the tank is a little tilted, like the NG tank. I like it this way and its intentional. thanks thoughomgosh! that's adorable! (probably not the word you were looking for, sorry! :P)
Even if the tilting is intentional, the perspective and angles are inconsistent. I tried to 'red line' it, but it was a mess and confusing! Do you ever go into the stickam room? Might be easier to explain it out loud.
I really like the dents and 'bubbliness' of it ...probably my favorite piece of yours so far! :D
thanks a bunch, and no I dont have a stickcam account. I see you guys talking about it sometimes so I might sign up.
I think the biggest issue is the right lining of the lower front plate (the one with the bolts/screws). that right lining makes it look like its tilted towards the viewer messing up the whole pic. I am working on it, but like I said I lost the original file with all the layers so its a hassle for me.
btw lining up was hard for me since I dont know how (or if) I can draw reference lines that arent completely horinzontal or vertical. I mean there were several moments I wanted to place 2 (diagonal) reference lines that had the same angle, but I wasnt able to. is this possible in photoshop? all I know are the "rulers" lines I can place (only horizontal and vertical) and the "grid" function. Often enough I use the grid to count the number of vertical steps relative to the number of horizontal steps taken by a certain line as to make a corresponding line somewhere else, it feels (and probably is) stupid.
I think (and hope) that besides that front armor plate the perspective isnt too retarded, it might also be partially caused because of the encircled mudguard issue making it look even weirder. that to I will try to fix.
and.... adorable is close enough, I was going for a mix of cute slash tough style. like this
I added a little tankman for reference it wont stay there
