It’s seems to be becoming a habit that I start each new sketchbook with a mecha sketch. I haven’t drawn an Gundam in at least 10 years, which is odd because it was drawing these awesome mechs and Akira Toriyama’s Dragonball Z characters that got me into drawing in the first place. Anyhow, this was a lot of fun, and reminded me how much I love the character designs in Gundam for their strong, planar designs (give me this over the Bay-former style of giant robot any day!).
In other news, I’m gearing up for a mammoth 8hr seminar this evening online at The Stan Winston School with Danny LuVisi. He’s doing a full photoshop technique run down, which I think is going to be nothing less than inspiring. I’ve been a big fan of both Dan and his artwork for many years now, and I’m really looking forward to hearing what he has to share… even if it will mean I’m up til 1am studying tonight!
