It’s been a crazy month of traveling, visiting, and trying to make sense out of work. I’m finally getting to a place where I can start being productive again, and I promise there’ll be more posts with new awesomeness soon. In the mean time, here’s a little treat form my sketchbook:
If you think you may have seen this one before, you could be right. One of my favorite things to do when I just want to warm up in the morning is to throw some vellum over and old sketch and try and cleanly work some lines with technical pens. The sketch was done years ago, but I felt it had more to offer. So, I inked this on the bus… or maybe it was the train… definitely NOT the plane, though. I hate flying so much.
So, I’m trying to come up with some sci-fi armor that has a distinct Egyptian look to it, without looking at or accidentally recreating all those cool designs from Stargate. In doing so, I tried finding some reference for ancient Egyptian armor, but I haven’t seen much. It looks like they wore more decorative stuff than protective. Here’s a sketch of one study I did. Sorry it’s so blurry. There’s not much light where I’m working right now…
