The Warriors

The top guy is a foot soldier, a lethal warrior. The next one is a sniper that conceals himself with a cloak like the Predator's. The bottom sketches were my initial ideas for this alien military unit. The armor was initially inspired by a mix of samurai, Navajo masks and insects. The final designs changed a lot though as this project was collaborative. Maybe I'll explore my initial inspiration on my own sometime.

Tek is really talented and I imagine you'll appreciate his blog:

The Takedown

Here's a loose illustration, more of an elaborate sketch really. I was impatient on this one, dabbling in how successful an illustration can be even if left unresolved in areas. I passionately admire art that straddles that line, but I don't have a good handle on doing it myself. As a concept artist the final presentation is never of chief importance so it isn't something I've felt pressured to resolve. However, whenever I see an artist do it well I fall in love.

I like this guy's stuff!
