OLD WORK - Shadowrun by Inkthinker OLD WORK - Shadowrun by Inkthinker
Old gaming character from wwaaaayyyyy back in the day. Man, I drew some big feet.

Huge feet. Honkin' gigundo feet. Heh...

Anyhow, a wetware modified elf from the old cyberpunk RPG Shadowrun. I guess he's a Street Samurai, even without a monofilament kanata. Except for his massive Humberto-Ramos-size hoofs, I still like this design. And yes, he has Intel inside.

Rapidograph tech ink on Bristol, circa-1998. I tell you one thing I've learned since those days... how to draw in proportion

:D

HAHA! Almost wet myself when I caught the Intel Inside tat. Wonderful art, though. The big feet really do convey a more powerful image, though, and you'd never guess they weren't intentional. I'm trying to teach a new group of players what the world of SR is like (Teaching them 2nd Ed. if it matters. Was the Character 2nd or 3rd, I wonder?) and this is exactly the kind of art I was looking for to convey the message. Thanks for your (perhaps unintentional but still appreciated) help.

Pretty sure it was second edition. It's been a good 15 years since then, though.

And yet, oddly enough, when I first drew that image oh-so-many years back, that seemed to be all ANYONE would mention, "DAMN, he got some big feets!"

:D

Oh well, it's old news now. If I draw feet that big on a character now, it's most definitely intentional.

I really enjoy the your angles on anatamoy... is there any kind of practice that would give me that kind of notion rather then copying hyung tae kim :P???

For a start, I'd say don't copy Hyung Tae-Kim. He's got a tendency to warp anatomy to serve his purposes, which is great IF you have a solid understanding of anatomy to begin with.

It's sad but true, in order to really master distortions of realism, you need a solid understanding of realism first. I hate to say it, but the best practice is life-drawing and boring, boring perspective work.

:D

thank you for the wake up call hehehe... it frustrates me... AGH, here in brazil I don't have a real art training or art school i can go to. And I don't feel particularly inspired most of the time, I'm afraid I'll be just one more hack or semi-competent professional

(you probably went trough this kind of fear when you were 19 hehe)

sorry for bothering ya so much hehehe... but do you know of any art colleges in the states or wherever that would receive foreign students? I just don't wanna end up like so many people I know around here...

PS

There's actually quite a lot of succesful Brazilians in comics and animation... keep working at it.

I'm afraid I'm not the best person to ask about in regards to schooling, being largely self-taught, but I'm sure there's ways and means. The best school for animators that I know of is CalArts in California, but there'salso some excellent schools in Canada for animation (they appreciate animation more than Americans).

It's hard to say what separates success from being just one more hack or semi-competent pro... I mean, I'm not entirely sure that I'm not just the latter, myself... I'm still working to find "success", so to speak. But if I could suggest anything, it would just be that successful people don't ever relax or feel satisfied with what they have, espescially in their own minds. They're always pushing to improve and break out into new territory.

It also helps to have confidence and faith in their own work that borders on near sociopathic delusion... if I believe in what I'm doing enough, perhaps other people will too.

:D

Hey. Big feet are awesome. And so is Humberto Ramos. No dissing of big feet allowed.

Never argue with a metahuman with Size 18 1/2 work boots on and a loaded pistol in each hand. You're likely to end up embarassed about two seconds before the flatline comes.

Great job. His big feet only enhance the coolness. I like his clothes. There aren't enough elven badasses. This guy looks like he's a real badass.

Do I know you? Probally not but on the forums I am at there running a Shadowrun rpg right now. Then again that is right now. Anyway its a lovely concept. All except I don't like elves. Every since I read Lord of the Rings I associated Elves with beings that think there perfect. Anywho hope to see you around

Nah, just the stuff with "OLD WORK" in the title. I can't show a lot of the stuff I work on currently until months after I've drawn it... Non-Disclosure and so forth. So from time to time I supplement the Gallery with a little of the old work I've done in the past. I was working as an illustrator for half a decade before I even got into the Internet, much less started showing work like I do here, and recently it occured to me that I've got a ton of stuff from back then just gathering dust in folders and old portfolio cases... so from time to time I scan in some of that old stuff, both to preserve it as a digital file and to have something to post.
