Dismounting (WIP) by Panzerfire Dismounting (WIP) by Panzerfire
Helga Nadler and the rest of her men of the 633. Panzergrenadierbatallion dismount a Puma APC during the Arabian Peninsula campaign. She's holding a Heckler & Kock G-36A2 assault rifle with a AG-36 grenade launcher. the tropper behind her is sporting a brand new MG5 7,62mm machine gun (Known mainly as the HK121). The rest got standar G-36A2s.

Drawn in a Cartuline sized paper (Twice the size of an A3 sheet) and using 0.05 drawings pens for the first time. I'm quite happy with how this turned out. perspective angle and detail turned out pretty good. But I am very dissapointed that I wont be able to color this for a while since my computer just got fried up for the last time. Now I need a new one and that will take time. How much I dont know. But until then, I'm uploading the linearts (Downsized of course) and once I get a working rig back up, I'm gonna start coloring.

This is the first of a series of three combat pictures featuring my OC Helga Nadler, Kahoru Fujiwara and Kathe Ryan. The one im drawing now is Kathe. :) Hope to have that one ready soon.

I hope also that you like this. I apologize that it's just a lineart. ^^;

Seeya in the Battlefield! :salute:

woah, are those really straight lines drawn without a ruler? i almost thought this was digital O_O
Reply
:iconpanzerfire:
Panzerfire Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I dont know where you took I didnt use a ruler. I DID use a ruler in some parts of the pictures like the G-36 rifle and the Puma IFV as well as parts of the Background. But not every apparently straight line needs to be made with a ruler. ;)

The Sidewalk that's at the bottom of the picture was made without a ruler just to illustrate the imprefections such parts have when looed at from close distance.

Ruler or not, this still constitutes hand made work and aside from the scanning, there's really no digital input yet.

I dunno either, just asking because i know with enough practice straight lines can be drawn pretty well without a ruler. But yeah for a picture this big not using a ruler would be a ridiculously frustrating job. 

The level of neatness is at maximum, it's impossible to distinguish from line art drawn on a tablet in my opinion. 
Reply
:iconpanzerfire:
Panzerfire Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
haha thank you. I think a reason for that is that the scan file is over 10K pixels wide. It's not very heavy as it is a TIFF file so it's still very manageable.

But once you start zooming you can see a looooooooot of black and white pixels all over the place. There's a significant amount of static once you zoom it 100%.

You cant see it here since it's a resized JPG version.

But that's not a big issue since I use a vector program called Inkscape to vectorize the lineart and eliminate those small imperfections.


Anyway I am glad you like this. :D

fish333 Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2013  Hobbyist
sure thing :) hoping to see more of it.

 i don't know much about these vector programs since i'm only familiar with traditional media, but they do sound handy to use and good for improving quality. I'm kinda starting with ps now but aren't very familiar with alot of the features, and colouring with a mouse can be a real pain because of how time consuming it is....could you help me alittle?

well, most professionals Im aware of do use Tablets to color in PhotoShop, or SAI. I however use the old trusty mouse. ;D

Anyway, for starters I would suggest that once you got your lineart in PhotoShop, you create an empty layer on top of it, and start add a few colors to some parts of the drawing.

Then, look to the right and look for the layer mode option and change it from Normal to "Multiply". Now you should be able to color on the upper layer with the lineart still looking as if it were on top and not below.

Try that and let me know how it goes.


Another thing you can try is empty out (Erase) all the background white of the picture and just leave the siloutte of the character or object you want to paint. Then go right click on the upper layer where the colors are and select Layer clipping. This should enable you to paint on the upper layer without the colors leaving out the lineart you're coloring.

Yeah i got hang of most of the basics, other than the mouse being tricky to handle there aren't too many other difficulties. I did get quite mad with it due to my colouring being not so impressive, so i just gave up :| 

Thanks for the tip man! Hopefully i can get a tablet like a wacom and the brush should be much easier to use, until then i'll just have to keep practicing with a mouse.

he it's all a matter of practice. Mostly my strong on vehicles lies on the perspective and the proportions. Details can always be added later. This vehicle looks too clean, so I hope I can rememdy that with PhotoShop once I get a working rig.

Very nice work man, too bad your computer got fried up. :X At least it will give you some time to work on the combat pictures of your other characters.

haha maybe. Need to find a similar model of Motherboard as I have been using if I want to reduce repair costs to a minimum. Thing is that mean that my computer will still have the same limitations as before.

If on the hand I have to get a new Motherboard, I'll need a new Micro-processor and RAM memory which could entail a significant upgrade to my rig. But yeah that's the more expensive option. ^^;

We'll see what happens.

Took me a little while to figure well the area of the hips and the legs start from there. Gotta practice that more often.

Prone positions are pretty hard to draw @_@

But im glad you like it.
