Giant Robot drawing and painting MEGA Mech Saga continue

Giant Robot drawing and painting MEGA Mech Saga continue.

Here is the 3rd update of the Mecha robot concept design process (here is part 1: Mecha Robot step by step drawing and part2 Painting Mech process tutorial). I get about 30 mins to an hour a day to do this...little by little. Hopefully it will turn out nicely.

Here is the latest UPDATE!!! (Still more paint over and tweaking to do! :P)
How to draw Manga, Mecha, Mech, Robot, anime, painting, speedpainting, speedpaint, tutorial


Note on the update: I decided yellow probably isn't going to work in this design because I want a little more dramatic lighting effect for this particular drawing, painting, color concept design. So I will have to go with the off-white color (white to light gray). White would probably look slicker anyway in this particular design (kinda remind us of big airplane and such).
I will have to change it from yellow to gray or something similar.
Goto: Top menu in PS --> Layer --> New Adjustment Layer --> Color Balance

You can use this tool to change and tweak your lighting however you like them to be.
Good rule to go by is...Cool light warm shadow vs Warm light cool shadow (Tips here -Color temperature warm vs cool for artist).
So I adjust Midtone then Highlight and Shadows until I get the yellow to change to off white color. Because I want to make underlight more dramatic that why I choose to go with the new color for the Mecha robot.

-Then, I decide to add the pilot cockpit onto its mid-section, figure it would make sense and it would definitely show the scale of the robot that we (human) can related to.
-Also I get a rid of the regtangular shapes on its shoulder. Because there is only one (two vents) regtangular element and the rest of the design are mostly round. So I decided to round it out with some sort of turbine jet engine look alike for vents to maintain the repetitive shape (consistency in design). ***there are some exceptions sometimes***

After all the changes, I think it looks a lot better and closer to what I am aiming for. **The off-white really does bring out the blue sky and the under-lighting effect :)

Anyway, Here is the color sketch so far (almost there)

Painting Mech process tutorial continue still work in process

Painting Mech Robot process tutorial continue still work in process.

From the very sketchy thumbnail composition last time, now I am going to the stage of what we usually called under-painting. At this stage, I am just focusing on the BIG shapes or the big elements of the Mech Concept's geometry form (forget the tiny bitty little detail for now). Focus on the main shape of the object and the direction of the light. And if there is under lighting, look out for that too. Also keep in mind what kind of material the concept design composed of such as metal (*video tutorial sample: art tutorial knight metal armor), gold (art tutorial painting gold color), rubber and such.
As for this image, I am shooting for finished shiny yellow color coat over metal, similar to somewhat like a yellow sport car or something of that sort. But nothing is set in stone at this point, since now I have to overall shape paint...I can still tweak the material or some of the pose if I need to (thanks to digital painting).
**I'm still not sure about the machine gun hand direction. The way it's position is more like a soldier holding an machine gun rather than the actual Mecha would hold it's own machine gun hand.

Here is "painting Mecha step by step" so far

So here we go, painting big shapes...

Mecha robot step by step drawing and painting tutorial

Mecha robot step by step drawing and painting tutorial.

Since I haven't really done any Mech Mecha or Robot concept sketch in a while. I think it's about time. Since most of the earlier stuff on the blog are really quick, rough and sketchy, especially most of the mech sketches. Like some of the previous video tutorials, "Drawing Mech or Mecha Tutorial", "Concept tutorial Drawing Giant Mech" or "Digital drawing tutorial Mech soldier". This time I decide to give it a little more time to make it more refine concept to it. But it will take a while. So here are step by step I start from initial sketch idea. How to draw and paint Mecha concept art.

As for the pose, it's very generic since most conceptual intend is to be able to see or expose visually it's appearance. Maybe in a later ones, I will try to do more of a cinematic composition or visual story panel style...so that they will be more action and interesting pose.

Here is Painting Mecha or Mech Robot process so far...
But here is the process Drawing and Painting Mecha (still in early stage and to be continued.)
1) Thumbnail...(do about 8-10 then pick one)

Limited color palettes study step by step.

Here is another study I did using limited color palettes ref after one of John Singer Sargent painting. Like the previous post, except this one is a little harder because of the drape, folding, costume and deco stuff.

In this exercise, I am not trying to copy it to be exact replica of his masterpiece (it's beyond my ability of course). I am just looking to capture and understand "VALUES" (light) and "Colors" and try to see it thru what Sargent could possibly see. I am sure I will probably do more and more of the study because it is really fun.

Again, this is a quick study so I limited myself to spend around 25-30 mins for the session so that I can understand the overall big picture trying to photocopy the master.

Here is a final sketch colors & values study
