Ye Olde Predator Sketch by Zaeta-K Ye Olde Predator Sketch by Zaeta-K
Some stupid idea I had to sketch out a mech and then put some psuedo-old background stuff on it.

This is a "Predator," the main vehicle used by one of the two factions of Spass Rahp-tors: [link]

I like the background textures that you use. They do a lot for the overall look of each picture.

Been following you for a little while and love these mechanical sketches. Any tips on how to work towards this kind of work?

Thanks man!

What would you want to know specifically? For this, I sketched both views in my sketchbook, took a picture of them both with my cellphone, and copied those into Photoshop. From there I layered them both on some colored paper (the drawings set to "multiply" so the whites would vanish and the lines would stay). Then I just added some weathering and some little notes on it :)

Definitely a good tip to know. But I more so meant technical drawings. I've been drawing a lot of machines and mechanical devices in a sketchbook and I've found I'm a lot better a that than I am at drawing anything living right now. I was just wondering if you had any tips or maybe some suggested reading on how to get better at drawing mechanical and technical things like engines, mechs, devices, and blue print-ish drawings like this.

Thanks ahead of time for the help and for the art,
Andrew

Oh, I see now :)

I wish I had some magic book to give you that could teach you all of those things, but I don't :( I don't even really consider myself to be a technical artist, as I only have a few of these "blueprint" looking images in my gallery. If you wanted me to recommend one of the most influential art books I've ever gotten though, that would have to be "50 Robots to Draw and Paint" by Kieth Thompson. Hands-down one of my favorite artists (not all 50 are his, but he has a few in there). That book has a pretty thorough tutorial in the beginning, and great walkthroughs and explanations to all the bots within.

If you're looking for something more realistic, try getting some books or online reference showing cut-away illustrations of machines. I have a book like that all about fighter jets, and sometimes I look at their innards for inspiration.

Hope I could provide some measure of help to you Andrew! Best of luck! :D

Cuz it deploys all that armor to provide cover for the infantry around it :o

IT'S STILL FAT. O:<

xD I like it, though... I'm a fan of overly armoured things that just straight up out-life bar other things.
