Against the Odds by mqken
Against the Odds
Really wanted to do a mech piece again, decided to finally do a back view of stratus. Overall I'm really happy with it, going to print out a copy hopefully and put it up in my room.

Played with lighting quite a bit, and this time I didn't line the mech before drawing it. I think overall there was more freedom because working with line art forces you to have to do it right the first time, but just freehand painting feels a lot less restrictive and you can play around with the poses/colours a lot more, but the entire production process becomes less mechanical and easy (but I think it's worth it). Also I didn't overuse textures this time, everything was hand painted and I used brushes to achieve the textures I wanted, so overall I'm happy I didn't have to 'cheat' to make it look good.

Went through 3 drafts before I was happy with the scenery, I wanted it to be really complicated but in the end I opted for a simpler landscape so that the mech can stand out.

Hope you enjoy.

PS: anyone know a good subreddit to submit mech stuff to?

This shit was from 2 years ago.

You know when you're in trouble when shit from 2 years ago seemed mildly impressive to you.

Fuck, I gotta get off my ass and do something.

The 2nd chapter of Bad Dad is still currently unreleased but I wanted to upload the cover since I did it a while ago. Hope Grey and Cory don't get mad at me.

I made this for Grey but unfortunately this particular comic he was going to is currently on hiatus til further notice. It was honestly too bad, but I had fun making the cover.
Hey guys, I did a collaboration with Johnathan Grey Carter from the Escapist, and we made a Mass Effect 3 fan comic.

Hello, I've found your work here and I really like it.

We are working on an exciting music video for an independent UK Dubstep label. The track features WU-TANG CLAN member Method Man. It will be in a similar style to our last video…

We have a main illustrator working in Photoshop creating our key artwork. We require a second person to help him out with some shots, including killer robots, copying his style. We have hi resolution photographs of every shot required, and poser renders so it's sort of a tracing job. Although this image is very detailed, the images I require do not need to be quite to this level.


Could you please reply to

Hey, so I was wondering if you're still working on the "Have Minions, Will Travel" comic? It looked really interesting.
