Damn, I need to get a haircut. And don't mind the randomness in gear color, it was an urban/industrial CQB so there was really no point in camouflage.

A quick one. Around 30 minutes.

Still discovering the qualities of PS and improving my use of light and shadow.

BFenix:

1. Your art is fucking amazing, keep up the good work.

2. I endorse the steelpunk idea. A combination of my three favorite things: Fantasy, SciFi, and :666:. I must explore this genre when it's ready for BrikWars-style chaos and destruction of all thing sane.

The mighty Vol Heavy Trooper! Back bone of the marauder space viking shock troops. Since the first time I got into Brikwars, The Vol have always been one of my favorite factions, so I guess this is some kind of tribute.

Extract from the Brikwars wiki:

It was a cold day on Tau-37 prime, but then, all days were cold ones there. The small frontier settlements were going about their morning routines,
and it seemed that it would be another long day of struggling to tame the newly terraformed world.
In reality, they were only minutes away from the pages of history. In a matter of hours, the great dark cloud banks had begun to dissipate,
revealing the sinister dark shapes descending on the colonies. the settlers first thoughts were of trade,
that the massive black shapes in the sky had come to barter and buy crops, minerals, slaves or fuel,
these thoughts passed quickly however, as the swarms of landing skiffs laden with heavy troopers touched down.
Many colonists stared dumbly, clearly in shock. Some ran to arm themselves or to seek shelter in the underground habitats from which they had emerged only two generations ago.
None could fathom the brutality and carnage they were about to witness.

Vol troopers leapt from the skiffs, cutting down civilians with a veritable hurricane of heavy-caliber lead. Howling like demonic wolves, the invaders slowly overwhelmed
the last pockets of resistance, gunning down or slicing up anything that moved, with the exception of the prettiest women, who were rounded up and put under guard,
and the youngest children, who were loaded onto skiffs and delivered up the the great black ships.
The party which followed lasted four weeks, with entire settlements being burnt to the ground, or otherwise completely destroyed.

When the survivors emerged from the underground vaults some weeks after everything had gone quiet, they found the abused and wrecked remains of their homes and towns,
and the few women who had been left broken and soulless, to die of starvation. the food stores as well as anything with alcohol in it was gone,
and most of the buildings were rendered useless by the drunken revelry which had occurred.
The missing women and children were never heard from again.
The first recorded Vol attack had happened.

In the centuries following, many more worlds were plagued with intermittent but truly brutal attacks at the hands of the Vol,
some were reported by survivors who had managed to lock themselves in impenetrable bunkers, but the majority simply went silent,
with evidence of the Vol found at the scenes by search and rescue teams.

The Vol pass on their history primarily in spoken or sung sagas. while this tends to make the legends somewhat larger-than-life, it also makes them somewhat awesome.
A prime example of the Vol bardic tradition is the Leonidus saga, which actually deals with a living person, and as such is always being added to and expanded upon.


Perhaps someone would like coloring this? 'Cause I still suck at it... I'll leave it as a WIP

Soundtrack: Amon Amarth - With Oden On Our Side - Valhall Awaits Me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHBe7IDrqpI

The Vol were created by Tuefish, all credit goes to him.

Yes, quite well drawn. It feels reminiscient of Mike Rayhawk's early style.

Logo for a band of friends, Raining Beer.

They're a small bunch, doing punk rock and classic metal covers and some funny originals.

It was time they had a logo, so, with the bands spirit in mind, I cobbled this logo. Hope they like it, I think it's fitting.

Did you photograph the beer bottle?
Did you "find" it on the net?

Its probably copyrighted by the photographer.
So they really shouldn't use it as an official thing.


Looks OK.
The background thing would look better if it was darker.
You need to erase the jaggie white edge on the bottles.

I "found" it all on the net, but none were copyrighted.

About the jaggie white edges, how can I remove them?

Use an
Eraser>Airbrush> pick a small round, soft edge brush
The basic round brush in Photoshop has a soft edge, the softer edge round brushes may be too much.
don't use the one pixel round brush, its too small.
zoom in
set pressure to 100% then carefully draw just outside the edge, so the soft edge hits the white.

It drops the transparency of those pixels, so you get a nice smooth edge that blends to the layer below.
The trick is to not make to many pixels of the bottle transparent.
Practice on a copy of the image if you need to, or use undo.

So, I've been working on this tribute to iD's Doom. I have a nostalgic love for this game as you know, there is still nothing quite like it.

Anyways, I've developed better coloring skills since I begun working on it. It's a pretty straight forward "King of the Hill"-style posing pretty much like the cover of the first game. It's not that it looks bad but I was thinking of redoing it completely. What do you guys think?

Any comments, suggestions, tips, etc. would be highly appreciated.
