A picture of my character, Terry
(in his 3rd stage of "evolution" if you will) unleashing one of his most powerful attacks; the Freeze Beam. Seeming as he meant to have absorbed all the kitchen appliances I had to offer, I only thought it appropriate that his highly modified nanites change a freezer into a weapon of mass destruction! XD Its meant to be a prototype picture, kinda experimenting with effects before I start my comic (heh, once I can get sufficient time to sort it all out! Damn you Uni!). In particular, this also a practice for one of the frames I have in mind for a battle... I won't mention the details yet..
In total, since about 12 noon I have been working solidly on this piece. It was started then, and was finished at five-minutes-to-eight. So yeah... 6 hours of non-stop drawing and colouring (I haven't eaten anything yet! >_<
. The "charging" part of the picture is some recycled Apophysis Flames I created along time ago, just modified to fit in with the feel of the picture. The background is a simple space scene using nothing other than Photoshop Filters.
I kinda also wanted it to look like that the attack is so powerful that Terry is nearly being ripped to shreds, so in traditional movie style, I made streaks of light coming away from his armor and weaponry, so I used the Smudge Tool on various brushes and strengths to pull that off.
I'm quite happy with this picture, and you can definetly see the Metroid, Descent and Rachet&Clank inspired parts to Terry's character design in it. Now, if you don't mind me, I'm gonna grab something to eat. (Oh, I know its a tad cluttered, but that watermark stops anyone from stealing my baby! XD)
