I call this "Red Baron" after Manfred von Richtoffen, the ace of aces in WWI (edited). The Red Baron is a customized Executioner (Gladiator) and is featured in all "I,Kerensky" series.
This is my first ever digital painting. First I sketch the mech with pencil, then scan and imported it to Paint Shop Pro 7. I documented every step, and you can see them in my scrapbook folder.
Creating lineart proved to be the hardest job (6-1/2 hours). But it is worth doing.
For coloring / shadowing / detailing, I follow the tutorial by hito76:[link]
Special thanks to SulliMike23,
Since this is my first, please be generous in your reviews. I'd greatly appreciate it.
EDIT: July 17 2009 I changed the background using techniques I learnt from Kat's tutorial. It's still not perfect, but I think it's much more interesting than the old one.
