Zodiac Blades characters concept design update.
This old design is a little more, settle and doesn't really tell much of what this is all about. It doesn't look like fun and it's very static. Most of all, it doesn't engage the viewer into the illustration as I want them to. I know some of you who like the lady, I will put her in some other illustration that I feel more appropriate for her part.
Also, I decide to change the overall theme from fantasy to more of a sci-fi and post apocalyptic steam punk. I've been concepting fantasy for ages so I want to freshen my idea up a bit more. It will make me think differently in term of design and such. More mechanical and clunky design rather than organic and ornate. I also want to design more creepy mutated creatures rather than typical fantasy monster in armors for the Zodiac project.
Since it is no longer fantasy, our hero dude's arm will no longer be magical elemental (fire, ice, and so on). He will man up and hold a big machine gun, pistol and sword instead. And yes, I will have to draw many cool guns from slick to gigantic clunkers. :)
Speaking of Mech here are some videos tutorial on the subject you can watch How to draw Mech War Machine, How to draw and paint Anime Mecha, and Concept art Tutorial drawing Giant Mech...beside robots here is some character Draw Metal Gear girl female assassin.

So down below is a new version of the title page or screen.
Now, I'm leaning toward the more action pack appearance as I try to engage the viewer more.
Apocalyptic steam punk Sci-Fi cross with a little touch of Far East influence design. Like I said, I'm trying to take myself away from fantasy genre for a while. There will be, hopefully, tons of guns and ammos...and many more greasy hi-tech steam punk manly stuff.
Back to the point that I am trying to make. This illustrates to viewer that he is out to destroy outrages mutated undead creatures. Where do these ugly creatures came from?
Long story... Once in every approximately 2,464 years, Luna Eclipse Zodiacs happen to realign themselves (I totally made that up). Then twelves asteroids will crash on earth...then we have twelve of them boss creatures from outta space. You get the idea. :)
*Still in process, will finish it up soon. And so does the boar mutated creature design I previously posted.*
For those of you who are awaiting for new video tutorial to come, I am running out of idea on what to draw. It's kinda hard to get something record within 20 mins and make them look good. But I just came up with some idea this morning. Possibly, I will just start drawing all the Marvel and DC superhero characters one by one... kind of like this video tutorial, How to draw Batman start with them ladies. Also possibly some Manga or Anime character like How to draw Naruto Anime Manga. And maybe some video game character like the Drawing and Sketching Mech StarCraft Marine video as shown below Been very busy these days, but will keep it up. It's been almost three years on this blog. I am not going anywhere.
In the mean time, watch this until I come up with new ones.
