This is an illustration that I've been looking forward to posting for a little while now.
Joe, over at My Xbox, Shes a Cruel Mistress, contacted me about an illustration. When he told me what he wanted I honestly wasn't sure that I could pull it off. Joe is an video game expert and he wanted an illustration depicting two characters, from two different games, about to confront each other in battle.
Unless you're into electronic gaming you're probably not going to fully appreciate this drawing. But I'll bet that there are several young people out there that will.
Character #1: (Stage left) Master Chief from Halo, one, two, and three. (He's the green one.)
Character #2: (Stage right) Marcus Fenix from Gears of War. (The big gray guy.)
Which one do you think will come out the victor?
I spent a lot of time looking at artwork of these two characters. I spent so much time studying them that one time, while shopping at one of our local department stores, I got a glimps of Master Chief's hand on a TV and I knew instantly that the advertisement was about Halo.
This kind of illustration is generally not my cup of tea. It stretched me. In fact it took me a couple of tries to capture what Joe was wanting in this drawing. But, I finally got it and I am pretty pleased with the results. Joe seemed to be happy with it too. Drop by his blog and tell him what you think?
