Justin's Helmet Sketch by Gneiss-chert Justin's Helmet Sketch by Gneiss-chert
:icondynamo-soldierbb: Had asked about whether his Oc should have a helmet.  Sure!!! In times of war, especially in his time where there are guns also, a helmet is important! He doesn't have to wear it all the time!

I told him Justin had one...I didn't keep that drawing but I do remember it perfectly.  So I said give me a few I'll draw it!! 

I realize that he aught to have one.  =)

So here is the design I had once before! It suppose to be a dragon skull in appearance and is gold with a green gem like the armor he has on.

I don't usually shade my sketches but I was so proud about how good this one turned out!!! :la: I will have to color it one day.

Yes I will have to do him a big suit or armor for big battles in later books! You are very right! On a large scale war he will need that.  This will be fun! =)

The helmet looks great! 
It goes nicely with the rest of his set of armor, too! :D 
I've always found getting the right helmet shape for a character to be quite challenging sometimes... 

Not sure if you know about this technique or not, but one really fast, nice way to shade sketches in pencil is to use "smudging." All you have to do is press on your paper and rub the pencil shading around with your finger, ... not only does it smooth out the shade completely, but it also helps you create effects. A quick erase on the edge of armor can make it really shine, or pop! The only problem is that if you're working on something large, your finger can start to burn a little! xD

:la: Awesome thanks!!!! I'm glad you think so!
I was so unsure about it! =)
Yes it is challenging.  Agar's is simple but it works for him lol!

AH yes I do!!  Didn't feel like it.   XD
I did smudge his arm before I added the hatches.  I kinda liked the hatch look here .

OH I like the eraser tip ty! =D

LOL finger's on fire!!! I Will make a paper roll with a point and glue it also.  You can buy them but cheaper to make them your self. =)

You're welcome! ^^ 
No need to be unsure! :) 
As long as it works, it's fine

Oh, lol! xD 
Oh yea, I see it! Yea, cross hatching works just as well! 

You're welcome! It works better if you smudge the whole image, since most of it will be a shade of gray. It creates a lot of value differences! 

Lol, yep! >.< I guess blender stumps work too, but I don't really like the feel they give when they touch the paper!

Gneiss-chert Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh yes true!! I should for the gradient, I can touch him up a bit! 
I keep distracting myself from this commission lol.  I guess it's not SDS related so I have to do some personal art everyday until it's done.
I am working on a couple facial expressions a day to fill a meme.  More cartoon and animated expressions!  They are coming out well!

I will of course appreciate feed back on them so I can get the right!

Yeah they are so so finger smudge is a nicer look!

That's alright! As long as the person commissioning the image is patient! 
Oh! Sounds interesting! I bet there will be some black boxes! 
I hope so! Thanks! xD 
I agree!

Yeah they are! =) I figured if I keep my brain happy their picture will turn out better! =)

LOL! No black boxes, but they will make you wonder.  I am designing them around situations in the book.

That armor looks, AMAZING, the shading on him looks, FANTASTIC, and.... this may be bias because of my deep fondness for headgear (and other strange articles of clothing) but... the helmet, IZ DA BOMB! :iconexplosionplz:

I dunno. I guess Tsukura's pretty unrealistic in that aspect. She doesn't wear armor or helmets or anything. Too confining for her. Actually I never put much thought into armor for the main characters anyway XD

Yes it depends on your story.  I couldn't see her with it either!

Book one he has no need for it or is in a situation where he doesn't have it.

In a large scale war, that is when I will get readers who say...wait a minute common he is a King fighting an army! >.>

XD I can't honestly recall too many anime/manga or shows that feature helmets on the characters. Could be I'm still not thinking straight though. I suppose it also depends on what the characters status was.
