Steampunk Nicolai and Viktor by YoshiyukiKatana Steampunk Nicolai and Viktor by YoshiyukiKatana
UPDATE: Fixed a few things that my friend ~badwhitney pointed out as much as possible.

Steampunkafied Nicolai (the young dude) and Viktor (the old dude). Not too happy with this one but I thought I might as well share. I'm hoping to do a steam punk themed project for Conceptual Illustration class involving Nicolai next quarter.

MEDIUM: Mechanical Pencil, Corel Painter IX, Adobe Photoshop CS2

So...I came upon this by happy accident. I think it's amazing, it's like they're about to jump off the page and start moving around in all their glory any second now!

I'm wondering though, any word on that story you talked about doing wth these two...?

I really like the picture, also from afar one already sees that theres a lot going on. The angle, the background the old guy everything is just fine.

My only beef is with the Gun of the young guy, there's something off about it. But I can't put my finger on to it.

Anyhow I :+fav: the pic a few days back, need it for Steampunk inspiration. Hope you won't mind.

I love this! I especially love the posing and the emotion captured in the characters' faces.

Is that Nicolai as in Tesla?
renegadesoldier Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2008   General Artist
I like to notice people's facial features and notice what makes them look so individual. I reckon men's faces are the most interesting faces to draw.

fegie Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2008
The action & movement are awesome. There's not only a real sense of a story, but also that things are happening it's really kind of time to go.

Very nice. How long did this piece take you?

Btw, love your style, such a refreshing break from all the hard-core manga/anime.

ชอบมากเลยภาพนี้ แอีคชั่นดี มุมดี แต่ว่า แบ่งระยะของมุมนี้ยังแปลกๆไปนิด เอาเป็นว่าท่าแอ็คชั่นยังแรงไม่พอดีกว่านะ
แต่ชอบ แค่นี้ อภัยให้

Hey Ploy. Hope your summer's going well.


Overall, love the composition and color pallete. Your perspective in the background is a bit off - watch your ellipses. The characters are pretty stiff. Try holding the old guy's pose and feel how awkward it is. The guy in the BG has a kinda girly pose as well. The way you put in the clothing folds on the characters' upper arms flatten out their shapes. Also watch the younger character's gun- the barrel has a slight curve to it.

All critiques aside, I'd kill to be able to digitally paint like you do.
YoshiyukiKatana Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2008
That's all cool. Thanks for the critique as always. It was very helpful. Hope summer's treatin' you well. :)

ส...สุดยอดเลย :omg: ช่างดูมีพลังมากมาย!! รู้สึกยังกับเป็นฉากจากหนังอะไรซักอย่างเลยค่ะ ชอบจัง
shadowwaker Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
I love the colours and dynamic poses in this. Also the expression on the older man's face is wonderful. It really tells the situation they're in. (In combination with the other man's expression though.)

I also like their designs.
