Here's a little showcase of the signatures I found on my hard drive. Comments and constructive criticism are welcome!

You have your own inimitible style, Rayburn. My favourite would have to be the fourth one - it is simple, clean and effective.

If I have one critique to make it would be the smaller text on the SLOWBRO signature: it appears to have just a shade of blur.

Thanks Stinger. It took me a while to get the Slowbro sig half-right. I agree with you about the text but I couldn't find any other way to blend it in without making it too dominant over the simplistic rest of the sig. Could have been worse, though. 'Clean and effective' was exactly what I tried to do in the fourth sig. It perfectly catches the essence of HAL9000's 'character'.

I think it goes without saying that you work has always been fantastic looking and while it may be true that I prefer larger images your style is great in the sense that you can put so much work and make it look great in a consistent size =)

Great work man, can't wait to see more of it!

Here's something I finished earlier today after I successfully got through Metal Gear Solid 3 without
a single alert. First time I did this kind of run and I even get a portable stealth device as a reward.



For those who can't tell, these are some of the bosses from MGS3.
The Pain, The Fear, The End, The Fury, The Sorrow, and The Boss.
I went for a different style with this one since I wanted to try my luck at bigger sigs for once.

Also, I managed to get my old scanner back to work, so I might post some
of my drawings later on as I'm pretty sure I haven't even shown some of them yet.

These are some of the drawings I mentioned earlier.


This is a Martian. The interesting this about it is that it was actually the first image I had in mind
when I heard the Jeff Wayne's musical version of War Of The Worlds. In retrospect, I'd say this version looks
too friendly and worst of all, too clumsy. Even though the Martians are described as sluggish (due to their
lack of proper muscles and Earth's greater gravity) this one just looks laughably unviable. Might draw a new one.


This one's just a random alien. Totally generic if it weren't for the gimmicky transparent brain-
pan and weird shoulders. It's certainly not my best sketch ever but it's not the worst one either.

So yeah, that's all for now although I might post some of my old ones later on. The veteran members may remember some of them from ES.

Thanks for the comment.

``if the eyes would be smaller and somekind of head exists it would lokks better´´

Weeell, that's the whole point of it. The Martians in WOTW basically ARE nothing more than huge heads with a whole bunch of tentacles. The idea
behind that is that their brains are pretty much the only thing they need which is why they compensate their physical short-comings with machines.

hmm I see, but still those big eyes make them look so friendly

and maybe longer and stonger tentacles to counter the clumsiness?

Indeed. I was thinking of replacing the arm- and leg-like appendages with longer tentacles all together.
Makes the whole creature look more evolved rather than just a big brain with degenerated legs sticking out.
Also, maybe an almond-like shape could make the eyes more menacing.

Three new sigs; nothing too spectacular but I thought I'd try something different with these.

I always liked the Alpha Hunter drawing you made:

Looks fantastic really, the attention to detail in the bumps and scales look great and the crosshatching adds that style that I like the most. Great sketch smile.gif

Cheers, mate. Although personally, I prefer my Beta-Hunter in some aspects. It just looks extremely nasty and while it may not have many of these cool scales,
you can trust me that drawing these...bits covering its upper body was a real pain as well. I like how the 'pattern' of those ended up looking sort of random, though.

Those Alpha-Hunters can be real bastards, though. Like the very first time they show up in the original Resident Evil: You enter a room you've been in before, but this time, you hear those creepy, stomping steps and that ominous growling...and suddenly, there's this huge green monster at the other side of the hallway, it charges at you and knocks your sorry loaf off. Almost as terrible as the scene where the zombie dogs jump through the windows all of a sudden.

Agreed

Isn't that first encounter at one of the Umbrella corp labs at that point? Because I think I may be thinking that exact same scene that scared the shit out of me and had to pause the game into the menu. XD.gif

Nah, it's in the mansion right before a certain save room IIRC. BTW, that's a pretty cool drawing of a Hunter.

Nothing too complicated from the technical viewpoint but I stumbled across this cool
concept piece and tried to make a small sig that captures the mood of the scene.

Anyone remember this silly old thread? Yeah, it's been a while.

Anyway, it's been ages since the last time I drew something that wasn't a map concept, but here's a rather liberal attempt at General Aleksandr.
I definitely need to get the hang of this again. As you may see, I generally avoid doing humanoid figures. Might have a more serious attempt at this later.

Yeah, I finished that guy with an axe to the back since he had become too much of a pretentious git to me at that point. Can't say I miss him much. mindfuck.gif

Feeling inadequate? Perhaps it comforts you when I tell you that I may be able to write and sketch, but I can neither ride a bike nor chat up people with two X chromosomes. Hence why I haven't tried either of these since kindergarten.
