quick scribble. my hawke is a burly warrior who can’t stay away from barfights or booty.
i’d like to personally thank the bioware writer who wrote certain parts of the citadel dlc just for me.
this is really bad i can’t stop thinking about turian j’on stewart and salarian stevan kolber
and, thanks to ladragonaria, krogan limbah of clan rush, angrily reporting on wrex and bakara and the dangers of their new salarian alliance ruining tuchanka this is the end
and batarian glan bekk, conservative. cheer or cry foul.
i added racha t’mado, asari pundit and cocktail enthusiast
file anders under characters I didn’t think I’d like and breathtakingly tragic
shepardsweetie asked: THANK YOU for posting all of your references and stuff, oh my God! You've helped me so much when I draw the pains-in-the-(sexy)-asses that are turians!
you’re very welcome! I’m replying to this publicly so I can include some images.
I dug up some of my first turians, and some of my most recent ones i dragged out of a sketchbook. they are definitely not easy beasts to draw. and I think I’m better at them than I was when I scribbled that tutorial. just draw from models a lot, pay attention to shapes and face proportions. and draw them a lot. I still get frustrated with their faces.
here is a good set of screencaps that might also help!
sketchyeh asked: Your structure sketches for the Quarian/Turian/Krogan were AWESOME. I loved them! Do you suppose you could do a very quick ort of thing like that for the Charr race in Guild Wars 2? I haven't been able to find anything else, especially not anything near as helpful, and I'm really having trouble. ;__;
thank you! unfortunately I have not played guild wars, not once in my life, so I couldn’t deconstruct charr with anywhere near the same amount of faked authority. if you (or anyone) can give me some clear references, I could try to give it a go?
such an influx of new watchers!! i’m safely beyond the 1k threshold which amazes and terrifies me. thanks so much everyone who clicked that button, whenever that was
i am leslie, a gay jerk who draws. that’s about it
and i think i should commemorate the event somehow, but i’m at a loss. i’m open for suggestions. a giveaway, a marathon draw stream? something else??
quarian structure notes as requested. bigger image: here
like the others, these notes assume you know how to draw humans. don’t try to learn weird aliens before humans.
this is a simplistic breakdown of their body structure, and doesn’t cover suit appearances, or nude details. that is up to your own creativity. check the turnaround links for reference for suits.
leg justification: many people draw quarian legs the same as humans (plantigrade), while the models clearly show a bowed-back leg too extreme to not have a joint (see the second image). the shapes of their armored suits can make it hard to discern, so hopefully the bone demonstation helps clarify it. as further justification, in the citadel DLC, tali comments (with digitigrade turian garrus) confusedly how humans don’t tip over with their weird legs. jack calls her doglegs in reply. I don’t think this exchange would’ve been included if quarians had legs like humans.
another quarian reference I’ve made: here
salarian structure is coming next!
starting dragon age 2 means attack of the floating headshots (incl. my warrior hawke yawn)
i foresee an aveline pinup in my future. yes i’m one of those
