Star Fox by Makkon Star Fox by Makkon
Homage to my childhood hero. I still remember playing Star Fox 64 right out of the box on Christmas day. Fond memories...

EDIT: Fixed the round, poofy face. Hope it's an improvement.

Some Joe pointed out that the characters have mechanical legs. Explanation ?

Their lower legs are amputated and replaced with mechanical legs to prevent passing out from intense blood flow to the lower body from gforce while taking sharp turns.

Such is the nature of science fiction, even though the information we exchanged is never mentioned in any official publication from nintendo, and it likely fan-invented.

Sure, how do you go about getting the structure down? you know the skeleton?

I do it the same an anyone else. I quickly draw in the gesture and overall motion of the character, then I refine shapes and check proportions and angles.
This video should be helpful:

Other than that, you need a lot of practice to teach your hand how to move to make certain shapes and poses, as well as to build a library in your brain of these poses. I suggest drawing gestures from a site like Quickposes. www.quickposes.com/pages/chall…

Thanks! I used photoshop, and a few simple custom brushes. Most of the painting is done with the same brush.

Which kind of brush? :)
Reply

Makkon Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
It's a square brush, hard on one side and soft on the other, like a gradient.

Awesome art style, the brush strokes look cool in this piece. There’s a little bit of purple tone almost in the entire piece. The piece is cool and realistic. :D

Starfox64 was indeed a masterpiece of a galaxy shooter :teevee:. Those were the days of decent game design. And you have painted a worthy hommage :bow:

His right boot looks a little odd but I know how *itchy the front perspective of feet is, great work nevertheless :clap:

:iconmakkon:
Makkon Featured By Owner May 3, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks, dude!
I agree with the foot, I think what's really throwing it off is the other foot next too it, the heel comes down too far and makes the right foot seem too small.
