stu apoco ref by stucat stu apoco ref by stucat
been working on a post apocalypse pic with this load out and thought it would be fun to do a full ref sketch image during breaks at work while I worked on the full image

Cheers ~strange-fox for bringing back the face!

guess that wouldn't be hard, just have to throw on a human face and remove the ears and tail :0

Oh you don't have to do that! I was just saying ya know... but wow! this guys is a total BEAST. He's all suped up and ready like you should be for the apocalypse! I hate seeing characters in just torn up clothes thinking "yeah this is all I'll need" xP

Thanks :]
guess it can depend on the situation and what has happened to the character.
Here he's had time to prepare his gear and gather the things he would need for this expedition, but later on could loose a bunch of gear from a conflict :0

I wish it could be a series, currently I don't have enough time to do such a thing regularly.
Have been thinking of doing more with these characters in this sequence though when I do have time for it :]

Pictures alone can tell a whole story. Just do whatever you want! I'll definitely be keeping an eye on you. Good luck! (:

This is really cool! I like how his outfit looks thrown together but still rather well thought out. The detail in the folds of his clothing and the textures of the different types of cloth are all really well done. The shemagh is a lovely touch, especially! Great work all around, mate. :D

I liked trying to think what this character would have on his survival kit, combined with the normal clothing he wears.

Cheers Jordan!

Well this is certainly different.  Love how you can diversify your range of time periods and places of focus for your subject matter, dude.  For being a sketch, this is incredibly top-notch. You definitely know where it's at when it comes to entertainment value and keeping your viewers' attention heavily invested in what you have up and coming their way.  The details in the clothing not to mention the way you arrange it all with the folds from top to bottom is assuredly outstanding.

Can't get enough of your wicked art, man. :)

learning a bunch of things like that from work, so that is helping me develop my skills a bunch more :]
The sketch took a bit longer than it should sine I'm mostly working digital now, and I get lazy with traditional media as I think I will fix it later in photoshop haha.
So this was a bit of practise using a pencil again for some nicer than usual line work.
Cheers again Bowser!

It can be kind of nice to see a bit of the "behind the scenes" work that goes into these kinds of rare sketches we get to see from you, since sometimes they can help form the backbone of something even greater (such as that other post-apocalyptic digital composition you showed off).  Glad you're not afraid to vary your skills up from time to time. :]

Sure thing Stu!

I was thinking about doing a step by step process of this pic like I did with the foreign manners pic, but that wouldn't really show anything new as I used a similar process of rough sketch, base colours, shadows, rendering then textures. So just going to move onto the next pic!
