Sgt. Prime wrote:WOW, I really love your takes on Voltron. They look amazing. The coloring that you used gives it somewhat of an abstract look which I think is great. With the black lion I like the 2nd rendering better, but I do think that the original tail, but maybe with the length of the 2nd, would look better. Also, the head looks a tiny bit small for the broad chest/shoulders, so possibly making the "fur" on the sides of the face wider and longer would look even better. Kind of like the Shield Ligers from Zoids. I'm definately not knocking your work, it looks great, and actually, I would love to have a print.
The full body Voltron and the 2nd rendering of the black lion would be a hard choice as my favorite. The combined Voltron gives that human element which makes you feel a bit connected to the machine/artwork, which is some of the draw to the imaginary worlds of Voltron, Transformers, Zoids, ect.
Anyway, you have great talent and I hope to see more as you finish the Voltron concepts, and would love to one day see the same with Zoids and your take on the movie concept Transformers.
Hey thanks, means alot.
Yay, another Zoids fan, there are so few of us left out there ya know. My fav was Berserk Fury, hands down. Next to that was Liger Zero. In fact, hold on a minute.......
Ah here it is, some fan art for us Zoid fans, pencil rendering I did waaaayyyyy back when I was still in college.http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn12 ... fanart.jpg
Liger Zero fused with a BLOX Zoid, think it was Falcon something or other, was a japanese release. Don't think it ever made it to the states. *Sigh*
The Voltron art was my fav license to work on to date. Sadly, the project never moved forward, however the art director I was working for at the time made sure they knew who I was, so hopefully something will come of it in the future. I would like to have worked on it longer, and I agree with your observations for the most part, just an issue of money with these guys though. *Sigh*
My fav pieces are the Voltron vs Robeast and the Profile pic. The Profile Pic was the first piece I hammered out then worked it backwards to figure out what transformed where and went where. Overall I'm pretty happy with it.
Thanks again, glad to meet you, hope you enjoy the fan art.
