    A practice of sorts. I wanted something that was less heavily anime, and quicker to produce so i tried cross hatching and dither for shading and texture rather than a ton of different colors. Im also trying to make my palettes less eye bleedingly saturated. What do you think?

    looks like a western comic strip style, guessing you were aiming for that kind of style
  3. Something like that. Really wanted something where the eye color popped more and something i could get away with more weird proportions on side characters without it looking too out of place.

    I was going to draw a picture today, but then I got side tracked, completely walked away from it minimized the art program and then when I came back I forgot it existed and a full day went by. when I was closing my 'left open programs', I saw a little doodle I made, I call them warm up doodles, I draw stupid shit just to get the "juices" flowing. just thought I'd share this before I delete it... who knows maybe I'll use it since it's now saved on here. this isn't a saved file, I just Ctrl+C'd it and pasted it in here. that's pretty cool that I can upload stuff that isn't saved.

    Trying to see how the proportions and detailing should work. Minor design update as well.

    Credits to Jo and everyone else who made ridiculous suggestions.
    EDIT: This went through a lot of changes.

    I think the style is cleaning up. I need to find an efficient way to cleanly hatch the shading tho. Hm.

    The official art for melon man is coming along! Im still not happy with a few areas yet so I didnt get it colored tonight. I think i might shrink his head a bit, and i really don't like how the knee on our left is jointed up. But it should be a simple fix in the morning when I'm not struggling to stay awake enough to hold the pen.

    Ok so. I had a design accepted into a fan game, Megaman SD. This design, Tundra Man, I felt didn't properly convey the tone I wanted him to, which is a given since his design is years old now. I wanted a cute and fun type robot and the tundra design sorta...straddled the line between cute and serious I suppose? To remedy this I emphasized hos snowman like body more, changing it from a chest armor to just being his torso. To add to this I then fattened his face up and gave him the "bug eye" variant of robot master eyes to help take the edge off the old face and tie it into his new body type. A new color palette was proposed by another member on the team, and i think it really helps him pop much better than the old one and keeps him just colorful enough to have a fun edge to him without going over board. It was suggested his name be changed to Flurry rather than Tundra because it doesnt carry quite the same menacing bite.

    What do you think?

    Wanted to test a new shading style, but I didn't want to waste the effort making a new sketch just to shade something. Decided to ink over an old v00 sketch, very quickly at that hence the general rough and shaky shaping and lining. Anyway, i think this style can be refined into something pretty nice.
