I’ve been practicing and drawing children lately. That there’s a few of them.
It’s a Dieselpunk mech!*
It’s based off an image I made back in college that was haunting me with its spirit of inadequacy. Consequently I had to remake it. Better.
You can see the a few snapshots of the process behind this one in the gallery below, along with the old design I did back in college that served as the inspiration.

Here’s two quick sketch paintings of faces I did yesterday. I really love painting faces I do!
