Feb Draw a Day 13 by will-Ruzicka Feb Draw a Day 13 by will-Ruzicka
Last Robotech piece for the month, I think.

It's funny how this draw a day thing brings certain habits to my attention... Seeing this piece next to the other two Robotech pieces made me realize I'm using a similar composition in all of them. The angles are almost the same, and even the last two pieces, two of the characters are almost in the same pose. too late to do anything about it for this one... but moving forward I'll be more mindful.

I spent a lot of time on the BG, for some reason, trying to match the look and colors of one from an early episode. But then I took all sorts of liberties with the characters and bike... odd.

Mighty MOSPEADA/New Generation action! Clap A little artistic license in details is OK, the official Japanese artists go off the sheet all the time. =P (Razz)

Awesome piece. Fun fact: In Japan, Rand is called RAY and Annie is called MINT...

I think I remember coming across that when I was researching this one, yeah. Which seemed weird that Rei would become Rand... Ayn Rand fan on the writing team, maybe?

Yep! I loved Robotech growing up. If Annie was a fan of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", she'd need a bigger hat.

Liberties or no you've captured the characters as well as anyone might. Rand's intent is unmistakable and Annie's naive excitement at the prospect of gunplay is perfect. Well done sir! I'll be posting a Cyclone piece here soon, though with Rook straddling it. Keep your eyes open...

Curious though, what is BG?

BG is just short for Background.

Glad you approve. It threw me off as I was watching the first few episodes, when someone randomly called her Mint. I'm not sure if that was a mistake, of if they intentionally meant to use her Japanese name as a nickname.

Also... why change the Japanese name Rei to Rand and not simply Ray?

shahada Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2012
Mint Labule was her full name is Genesis Climber Mospeada, and sorry for the typo error. it was actually Ray.

i think it's for the storyline of Robotech that they changed it to Rand, while the others... well, i think you get it...

here's info about mospeada in wikipedia [link]

Right on. That's really neat though that you can crank out something of that quality in such a short time, really telling of your skill level.

Hell, Lion-O looks awesome even though it is super sketchy compared.

I think your using of a similar or even exact style for each piece is simply a subconscious desire to capture the "action style" of the series, and in that you've succeeded in spades. All three very much resemble stills or screen grabs from particular episodes across the Saga. I think that had less to do with bad habits and more to do with wanting to respect and truly reflect the source material. Frankly, I think that deserves a pat on the back far more then an admonishment. Also, I don't think you've taken any liberties that weren't warranted. Everything you done only serves to bring out the best elements of the series.

Mmn.... glad it doesn't distract you. But I'm a perfectionist. I need to be able to vary my action scenes and keep them cool without resembling the same thing from a night before.
It's all about having a set of shots to use and tweak... and I've used a similar one too many times now.

Tomorrow I will try and be different.

Glad you feel I was respecting the source material, though. I'm not sure Mint was ever this useful, but she did go nuts with a machine gun at one point, so...

Again. Amazing and awesome! Rand and Annie (Mint) LaBelle are awesome. You did a great job keeping the same colors of the original cartoon for the background, mostly on the rocks and trees. I also like how you've given the Cyclone more Motorbike properties.
