Standby Skies WIP6 by Shimmering-Sword Standby Skies WIP6 by Shimmering-Sword
Thought I'd make a new dev for the painting stages, in case anyone likes the sketch. Zoomed it back in this time to show off some detail

Fixed up Marx's head and armor today, along with giving the Elementals their equipment. The streams are pretty laid back and chatty, so not a lot of work gets done :D

I like the design of the armor, especially the headgear. Very straightforward and easy to understand :)

Did you read my reply to your first comment like this? It would save both of us time if you used to system already built into the dev pages.

?...as in..? All I know is you go to the group page and click on the option button "contribute art," and then submit it into the folder you best see fit. What do you mean exactly when you say, use the : "...system already built into the dev. pages."

There's another way for people to submit devs, which particularly helps mods requesting art. On this page (any deviation page), look at the list of groups it's in and below that is a "Submit to a group" button.
This way you start the process instead of relying on a comment, the artist only has to his a Yes or No button.
I don't mind having my stuff in your group but it takes (a little) effort to do it myself, would add up if every group requested art your way :D

It's a site where I can stream video of me working on my art, live. So if you see the journal in your inbox within a few hour of it you can drop in to watch.

It all depends on the soldiers preference, it's very adaptable because most of it's power comes from it's field generators.
That stuff you linked looks good, but better to learn from than a comic book noob :P

How'd you get those perfect circles on his back? Just transformed circles?

For the circles I used a stroked path/vector.

Is the girl Marx?...just asking ,good to see she's got some gear on her now...
So elementals are basically elite soldiers with extremely advanced shield technology that they use offensively and defensively?...IDEA!!! *rushes off to the nearest desk*

Yep, the shields can protect them, but that's just their most basic use. They can heat and move things too with friction.

You need to email me some form of story or post a story or some sort of tech rant on dA or something...because frankly it's just really cool...

I have a similar sort of "unit" in the back of my head...but they have a special gauntlet that manipulates matter and energy in an object...basically that means they can break down structures into thier molecular components and manipulate them to say: form a wall, or make a projectile or even make some sort of "force push"
but theres alot more to it than that...lasers for one...but im still working on it...

lol hotkeys. I have most of what I use on my wacom tablet. Color pick, pan, zoom, undo, and change brush size. Of course I know a ton of the keyboard hotkeys too when I need them, but that's not as critical, the skills and practice are what matters.

Ahh I suppose your right. But being efficient is probably something i need to work on the most. Trying to work on a piece then looking for the adjustment button I need kind of distracts me. Better to have quick hotkeys and keep it flowing. Your right about practice, just started painting for the first time.. Yikes.
