this is jst a step by step thing on how a pic is usually made.. by me
01- i do the initial pose and what'not using my 4h lead pencil.
NOTE : i jst changed it 2 that red-ish colour in Photohop jst for kicks
the rest is al follows...
02 - i began w/ the arm. i drew these lines w/ my HB Mechanical pencil
03 - i then moved onto the body and head. i think his gace came out noice
04 - then onto the legs.. which i found a lil' tricky... coz the only ref i had was this Don Figueroa cover i found online.. and that bad part about that is that Don's Mecha's are JUST TOOO GOOD
05 - then i did the rest.. finished it off is what i did
06 - this is jst the lines w/o those coloured-up 4H lines... i jst overlayed that in PS to give it that previous look anyway
07 - this is what my lines look like str8 from the scanner... no levelling.. nada...
08 - now this one here's been contrast 'tweaked'. i also added a slightly thicker border around him and gave his arm a bit of line-weight
and i gotta say..
RESPECT to those who draw Mecha's and make thems shit look easy... RESPECT!
