Unknown japanese science-hero team member. Probably from a TV show. More practice, but this time reflections. I've got a painting of Robot Maria (Metropolis) I'm trying to figure out...that's a lot of shiny metal to paint. Spent about one working day on this total.
Saw Pacific Rim a few weeks ago, and I found it to be spectacularly fun. This was drawn in red pencil, inked/finalized with my preferred type of pen, and slathered with black acrylic paint. That's actually my preferred "traditional" methodology. Often I'll draw elements separately & composite them in Sketchbook Pro; not necessary in this case.
This was intended to be a mock "Man's Finest"-style periodical, catering to individuals whose paths cross with those of a super-scientific bent. "All-True!" type stuff. Plus, I really wanted to draw a capuchin monkey wearing spectacles.
Fun fact- I drew a separate background for this, and filled all the shelves despite knowing they wouldn't be visible. Included: A Fiji Mermaid, a full set of World Book Encyclopedias, Inspector Legrasse's recovered swamp idol, a doctor's bag, a Hand of Glory, two volumes of The Pnakotic Manuscript, a pirate chest, a display frame of butterfly wings, the complete collection of Monster Women Magazine to-date, a large volume of De Vermis Mysterius, a skull, two decorative plates. and a copy of the latin Necronomicon.
