This is an exercise submission on the exercise Refining the Thumbnail and Adding Variation

Rules of the Exercise

  • 1
    Take one of the previous thumbnails created in the previous exercise (which if you haven't, complete that first).
  • 2
    Do at least 3 refinements of that single thumbnail, each with different variations that are distinct to each design.
  • 3
    Once finished, submit your exercise to be reviewed and looked over under the "Submissions" tab for grading!

Exercises are a great way to test what you've learned given certain restraints, while getting feedback from your peers. Plus, they're a lot of fun!

I've chosen the most promising of the thumbnails. I've tried to fix the perspective a bit (it's still probably way off). I've spent about 6 - 7 hours drawing those. Had great fun!

    Very interesting variations. I like how you've isolated parts with shading.

    Guys, I have a cool tip. I am working on a dropship design right now, and I've found that if you draw your concepts (even thumbnails) in isometric / diometric perspective, you can kit bash your designs! (here is a link how to set up one in Krita - basically you use parallel rulers: https://docs.krita.org/Painting_With_Assistants). So right now I am drawing the wings as separate parts, engines as separate pars, separate landing gears and so on, and I can easily mix and match them. I will link a finished result here.

    I've made this dropship in isometric view. It allowed me to kit bash and copy parts easily. Here is the final result:

    Ooooo I dig these shapes a LOT. Great job on the subtle variations, the legs especially!

    Well done - pass!

    Thanks. I agree with your comment Jonathan. I should explore the face area more.

    I do wish there was more variation in the face, since it's arguably the most important part to get right, but overall there are really cool. Nicely done!
