Been rather frustrated at not getting anything finished lately, so after I did a quick doodle of the T-800 while watching The Terminator the other night, I decided to work it up properly.

This actually started life in procreate on the ipad and, as I didn't have my stylus to hand, I drew the initial sketch with naught but my finger (in your face, wacom).

Your artwork is off the chain, the level of detail you add is very impressive.

Now that the TOM contest is firmly in the past, I've finally got the Steins;Gate painting finished and uploaded the process video.  It's kind of a catalogue of errors, but I got there in the end.

My biggest complaint is that its really different from Huke's style for Steins;Gate.
The dudes look fine imo. Maybe a few touches up here and there.
The chicks are...Left for more to be desired.

I think in general your really good at realism but struggle at simplistic anime styles.

Hmm.  Not a big fan of Huke, so I'm not that interested in trying to mimic his style.  I think his use of texture is quite striking, but I find his approach to faces very flat and angular, particularly for female characters.

Nor am I particularly interested in pursuing overly simplistic styles.  I'm more into Genzoman and Shinkiro.  Of the two you mention, I quite like Cushart, but ????? less so.  I can appreciate his technical ability, but there's too much disparity between his male and female characters for me.

I see. There I'll be looking forward to your next piece.  :D

I myself quite enjoy simplistic styles.
I mean for sake of reference. I'd prefer Skyward Sword/Wind Waker Link then Twilight Princess/OoT Link.

Yeah, I know there's something to be said for simplicity when it's well executed, I'm just picky about these things.

Anyway, something new.  Art for a friend's twitch.tv channel, showing some of the games he's been streaming.

Tried to focus on detailing mainly just the areas that were most important and fading out the parts that didn't matter so much, although in practice I think I just got obsessed with doing the faces and lost my way on the truck and the monster hunter dude.

Trying to get back into better sketchbook-keeping habits. Quite pleased with how this turned out for the amount of time spent.
