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!

This quote is the most fitting quote for this picture! XD Amazing job, bro!
I'm glad you like it.
Need to draw Kathe more often then. She can be badass.
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.
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.
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.
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.
And a G36A2 with a frakking Tower of Babel on top? I'm shocked!
Nah, just kidding - this is awesome!
And I think one of the few things of the IdZ program that survived where the weapons developed for it.
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.
