WWXI Weapons/Tanks by BistroD WWXI Weapons/Tanks by BistroD
After a little sweet summer break, i take again on these effin' concept-stuffs. I think this is my first time painting a tank (or something fully metallic, for that matter) on photoshop, so the result is kinda shitty and boring... i'll have to pimp it up a notch before submitting this to anywhere :P

I love the sewed off rifle pistol.
It reminds me of the many inprovised trench assault wearponery that was used in WW1.
Google trench club, and you will know what I'm talking about!

Hey, en tu perfil pone que hablamos el mismo idioma jeje.
No conocía lo de las porras esas, suena muy bestia lo de pasearse por las trincheras de noche y dedicarse a abrir
cabezas silenciosamente con ellas. A pesar de la tecnología que había en aquella época, seguían teniendo
métodos bastante medievales :P

Si, la suma de nuevas tecnologias y estrategias anticuadas dieron lugar a la barbarie de la guerra de trincheras.
"Soldados en las tumbas que ellos mismos se habían cabado, esperando ser bolados por los aires por la artillería"...Día tras día. Las cargas de infantería eran diezmadas por las ametralladoras en tierra de nadie mientras se intentavan deshacer del alambre. Por eso se inventaron los tanques.

These guns are Excellent twists. I find these to be realistic in a way from WW1/2 most intriguing.

However, the only thing Irking me is your Light tank.
I see you were making a modification on the FT-17 french light tank, However it feels...rather thick as well as slightly short and stunted, similar to your Heavy tank.
These attributes would be Fantastic for a Heavy, but diminutive for a light.

A tip would be to make your light tanks just a tad bit smaller, different from your Heavy. Otherwise marvelous creations.

mmm i see what you're saying, and i totally agree. The light tank is supposed to have room for just two people, like the original Renault-FT.
The reason i did it that big was kinda to make the details in the drawing more visible to the viewer as this forms part of a portfolio, where everything needs to catch the eye at first glance without the need of zoom (people reviewing portfolios in game companies hardly spend more than a few seconds looking at the same page)

But yea, i can see the problem with that now. A size comparsion between the tanks would helped. two little silhouettes of them, one besides the other, or something like that. I'll keep that in mind for future works
thanks for the feedback! (oh, and for the watch and faves too) :)

p.d. - i hope i haven't butchered english completely, it's not my first language

Welcome. So I'm trying to get into art which is why I asked about the tablet or mouse thing. So do you get any tips that you can share?

about tablets? if you're just starting, any cheap one will do the trick, really... you don't need to go all high-end hiper-expensive, that's not gonna improve your art, just drawing will. I mean, i'm doodling on a very old and cheap one and still does wonders. I'd recomend any of the lower price wacoms. The more high you go on the prices list, the more sensitive the tablet is to pen pressure, but the basic ones are fine already.

But, if you can afford it by all means go for a Cintiq, these things are beastly =)

i'm not in position of giving much tips on art since i have a lot to learn yet. There's a lot of articles/blogs/webs/books out there that can explain you everything about art a thousand times better than i will. The only thing i can say to you without extending too much is: draw, draw, draw, and never stop drawing. Draw everything, not only things you're comfortable with nor styles you're used to. Draw from life, a lot. Draw from photos. And more important, learn the basics: Anatomy, Perspective, Composition, Color Theory, etc.

WWXI...world war 11?  Why are we still using guns that mostly look like WWII factory seconds?  *scratches head*

Probably the previous 8 wars might kinda make us go back to this tech...

there's no real logic behind it, just personal preferences :) 
i am fond of 'retrofuturistic' style things, alternate history/universes where technology remains 'old', and all that stuff
