This is after another round of crits. The place these guys occupy in space needed a bit of character too, so I worked on the area they're running around in. I pushed the industrial motifs. The red dot gives them a more definitive "bad" feeling and with a tip of the hat to Hal 9000. After I finish this I would like to do a portrait of a thought policeman without the helmet.

Now I'm shooting more for an illustration, and I'm trying to regain some of the menace that my previous piece was missing. This is only a sketch, so I still have a long way to go before this would be considered done. I may try some other comps to get a different camera angle.

This is pretty typical sci-fi fare. It's a tangent I went on after getting burned out on some work I took home with me. Lot's of late evenings, but it's worth it.
Who knows? Maybe this is where some 1984 worker spends his days...perhaps making parts for the perpetual war with whoever.

These are some of the quick sketches I did based on the general feeling from the previous painting. I got off the rails in a few areas, but it's good to push past the boundaries of what works for the source material to see what the limits are. I'm not 100% on any of these but I have a few that I like, and after gathering some reference, I think I'll do a full blown character design. THEN, on to the Spring piece. I actually have stuff to post for that too, but I'm on a 1984 kick, and I might as well ride it out while it's here.
