(Edit: Hey look 3 pages! Woot! congratz Kal)
HAHA! you're too kind :D
what can i say.... too much practice :lol
Lol I know the feeling. Like when I played that mmorpg runescape years ago I learned to type really fast b/c I would sell stuff and my message kept going away because to many others were typing. Lol what I learned from computer games....
(sorry for that minor off topic Kal)
Hey! I used to be addicted to that game when i was like in grade 5 :D
And then there was the game Second Life and that really boosted my typing speed :D
sorry off topic :lol
Hey Kal, I gotta request... can you do me with my sword in 1 hand, and my whip wrapped around the neck of a wampa? Also whats your paypal address, I gotta pay you for that one... PM me.
uh oh... thread jackers!!! lol but it's ok I don't mind, it's funny... and yay! 3 pages! Lev'ika and Nevu yest to both. Adonian, yeah I proally can... paypal is firstname.lastname@example.org.
THX, sent ya a lil somethin to your paypal.
Anyone who requests, if you would be so kind as to donate a lil to our vod here, he's spending time and ink for us, the least we can do is help him out.
Thanks ner vod, I appreciate it. BTW... Adonian... do u want me to change anything on the next sketch for u?
I just posted pix of my bucket 90%
wayii ner vod!
Man, wish I could draw. Donations for MY costume would be welcome :D
Maybe I could do mando stories.... hmm.... *ponders*
lol I also LOVE seeing so many of my sketches being used as Avatars! It makes me happy!
Makes me pretty happy too.
BTW... for everybody's awareness... I will gratefully accept any donations u may wish to give. I ask that u not exceed $5 US Currency per donation tho... otherwise my wifey might get ideas as to a career change! lmao jk, but seriously... I prefer small donations if u wish to make one. As for my current Order of Battle:
1. Jango's Desert Mando
2. Lev'ika's Color Up (may go first just because it's easiest)
3. Nevu's Redraw
4. Adonian's Redraw
5. Pacx's Redraw
6. Mereel's Redraw
7. Mando Mass Sketch
I'm treating all of the "Redraws" up here as new requests, and I am workin' on 'em in no particular order, just as I get time and whichever one seems easier/more interesting at the moment, however the above list is the current priority. I know some of these are supposed to be "recolors," but without MY own, personal computer... recolors are currently impossible, so I will attempt to redraw. Sorry I haven't gotten anything done lately, but parents are coming to visit, had 2 flights and the altitude chamber (aviation physiology) all since monday, and both today and yesterday were spent crammed into the flight med building for the physiology training. I'll get back to work ASAP tho.
You are offically the best Kal :D :cheers
I know what you're talking about with the most interesting :D
The sketch always seem to come out at its best when you are actually interested :D
And not to seem like im using your thread to amp up mine, but i know more people read this than mine and im wondering if anyone would like me to sketch :D
Ive got this feeling im gonna get the sketchs in my lineup done like one per night (got the creative vibe back :lol) and was wondering if anyone could help keep me busy :D
And if not i can always go to Kal for requests, im counting on you guys to keep me busy now :lol
Oh and i feel a little guilty, using Kals artwork of my mando as my profile picture :(
But until i sketch up my mando better than kal (this may take a while :lol, if ever :D)
Just kidding Until i sketch it myself :D my profile will stay as Kals sketch :D
And i am alright with that cause what can i say, Its a Kal sketch :D
he he promote away ner vod! and... don't feel guilty, u honor me by using it! I really do appreciate it.
haha no problem :D
Alpha go ahead and draw me :b
All you guys are much more creative than I with a pen and pad.
Okay Jango here's ur mando! lol I am kinda jealous, this is one of the best color schemes I've come up with to date. Oh well, I'm not workin' up a desert version for myself, but I am now working on a special version that u brits will appreciate. I've been playing COD4 a lot lately, and ran across this really cool lookin' dude from Halo 3 called the ODST Hell Jumper. Between the 2 influences... I've decided to do a SAS mando (ya know, the british Special Air Service commandos). I'll start a special thread for it once I have concept art done. Anyways... Jango the rifle is based on the new SigArms Sig556 carbine, and I just couldn't resist the sandstorm in the background. Hope u like it!
Ha ha! Someone else knows the pain of the addiction to COD4!! :lol Im not alone!! Thank goodness!! You do multiplayer?! Find me on the party time sniper only server. I love sniper.. Its a TD. I go by Nevu. Gotta love the SAS. Woot!
Though you better get off COD this instant! Otherwise you will definetaly not get anything done :D
lol well... no i don't do much multiplayer because I'm a PS3 guy... and the PS3 multiplayer is a bit of a headache. When I do get to play multiplayer... I tend to be a multirole kinda guy tho, but I def have a preference for the grenadier class
haha im still stuck with the classic PS2 :D
You can't beat a solid game of battlefront 2! Am i right? :lol
and it's still a fun game! lol but believe it or not... I actually prefer the older BF1
Gotta love the battlefront :D
BF rocks, my 9 year old kicks my shebs every time we play.
ok vode, here's the inks levi asked for of one of his sketches. Hope it works for ya! Next up... well... I think I still have a rodian smuggler that I need to do... and my SAS mando... and... and... and... lol ok... back to work!
I love it!! thanks a million!! Im going to have to pick up those markers. :D
what are they called again ner vod?
they are fibracolor professional color series 100 count. U can get 'em at Michael's for about $20 and I'm still on my first box of pens. Altho... I do need to go get a new box, I wore out my true blue, OD green, foilage green, red and black REALLY fast. Anyow... got my SAS mando sketch about halfway done now!
I LOVE the SAS! You gonna add a little side mask on it's helm? That would be awesome.
lol no... but the sketch I have for it right now has a 3 lens NVG set on top of the buy'ce. Not a big fan of gas masks, they're bulky and extremely uncomfortable... but I will say... I liked it a lot better before I took my mask off in the gas chamber than afterwards! lol
Not such a big fan of gas masks too, but on halloween night and you sneak up on your girlfriend in the middle of the night and turn the light on whilst shes looking right in your direction... mehe. Its fun to watch. Despite the inevitable slap.
lol yeah... ghille suits are fun for that too!
lying in the long grass, watching. waiting. He hears footsteps, approaching his position. as she drew ever closer.. he prepared to jump. She was right by him now, he could see her feet in front of his face. "ARGH1!!!!1ONE!!!11ELEVEN!!" he shouted, as she screamd louder than he had ever anticipated.
Anyway Kal, how's the sketches comin' along?
Pacx has a gf? Lol never told me that vod. rofl. Ha dont think i've ever done that to mine. Dont think i can now either. She is kidna tramatized from loosing her mom :/ OK I dont understand ur little story with the Ghillie suit? That was a fun and very hard lever on COD4, thought I play at Veteran sometimes, but I had to go back to regular on that level!
*hem hem* Pacx DOES have a GF. Dont worry 'bout the story... i didnt get it either.
he he yeah scared my bro-in-law to death with my ghille suit once... as far as the sketches go... well I kinda got wrapped up in my SAS mando last night, so I'm behind on the requests now. OrdBat is still the same, next up is a Rodian Smuggler... I think.
1. Rodian Smuggler
2. Nevu's Redraw
3. Adonian's Redraw
4. Pacx's Redraw
5. Mereel's Redraw
6. My SAS and ALO mandos
7. Mando Mass Sketch
a lot of redraws :lol I thought they looked amazing the first time
yeah well... sometimes I don't quite get it right by the client, sometimes they change stuff and want me to change their sketch to reflect the changes. It happens. As for Adonian... he just wants another sketch.
C1RCA here's ur Rodian Smuggler, hope u like it! As for everyone else...
1. My SAS Mando
2. My ALO/JTAC/CCT Mando
3. Mereel's Redraw
4. Nevu's Redraw
5. Adonian in Action
6. Pacx's Updates
7. Mando Mass Sketch
Sorry that some of u guys got bumped down the list a littleways, but... I'm going to be reworking my Custom Mando WIP thread... probably just restarting it, so I need to get new sketches of the concept art ready to work from, and get the thread rolling. Also, I'm going to start a WIP thread for my SAS mando and for my wife's mando when I start it... will be waiting a while for that one tho because... we just started P90X and I'm sure she's going to change in dimensions and maybe even her preferences for her mando.
lol ok here's the sitrep:
Working on my SAS and AFSOC mando sketches right now... will be done with those tonight, so I'll start the backorders tonight... sorry guys just got so into the whole thing I couldn't drop it. Mereel and Nevu I'll probably get yours done in the same day... just depends on my mission schedule as to which day it will be. Adonian, I'll get yours done ASAP... I hope to have everybody caught up by the weekend... Pacx still waiting on your progress pics ner vod. Last but CERTAINLY not least... JOIN THE MANDO PRIDE FITNESS CHALLENGE!!! JOIN THE MANDO PRIDE FITNESS CHALLENGE!!! JOIN THE MANDO PRIDE FITNESS CHALLENGE!!! lol seriously... join it.
Oh yeah guys... noticed today I have 3,000+ pageviews! after a quick scan of the forums I noticed that puts mine in the top hundred or so most frequently viewed pages! lol
Im only 2000 down on you vod :lol :D
lol and gaining fast!
ok another QUICK update... AFSOC mando and SAS mando threads are up with concept sketches shown in both, once u see how many sketches there are u'll know why it took so long! lol Anyhow... Starting work on some of the backordered sketches tomorrow night, hope to have most of 'em done by this weekend.
Man, I'm slacking. Adonian, man the whip!
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzz Warmin up!
Today I got home, and didn't even go in the house, I went straight to the bucket to sand the ears..
But tomorrow I gotta work AM shift again (they called me this AM) to make up for missing yesterday, anyway I'll try to do more work on mine tomorrow and post a pic or 2.
oooOOOOoooo more blood for your armor vod! :lol just kidding! :D but i do have a front row seat :D
lol u guys crack me up
The only seat your getting is the one on the end of my bone saw.
haha :D i think im good :lol
he he yeah still waitin on those Pacx! BTW... Nevu and Mer'ika ur sketches are started... but just started...lol I may have at least one of the two done tonight tho... BTW guys check out my AFSOC mando thread I have a question and I need help!
Okay... Here's the SITREP (Situation Report) for all y'all who're waitin on me to do something:
1. Nevu's Sketch
2. Mer'ika's Sketch
3. A'd'ika's Sketch ( I COMPLETELY LOST THIS ONE VOD, I'M SORRY)
4. Adonians Sketch
5. Pacx's Updated Manod (STILL WAITING ON PICS)
And somewhere in there I'm going to color up the final version of my AFSOC mando with both colors of webgear. So that'll be 2 sketches for me in amongst all this. However... Am working on sketches #1 and 2 right now so...
Awesome! I cant wait Kal!
And I'm gonna have some stuff for your review tomorrow (the helmet).
Wayii!!! I'm excited now! Oya vod!
OK so are u working on my skecth now or u finished it? In my post you said you finally got it done, i dont know if you meant you finished drawing it or you are now able to draw it?
Umm... urs is done... working on Mer'ika's, what I mean by working on it up there is I still haven't posted it! lol I just have to do inks on Mereel's and it'll be done and ready to start A'den's sketch. Then... Adonian's. I'll be devoting a lot of tomorrow to getting my list knocked out because my work schedule next week is intense.
I have the actual drawings done for almost all of the prime 4 sketches... problem is... I'm out of certain colors of ink that I have to have to finish up, and low on funds... I'm going to go to Michael's tomorrow to see if I can find the individual colors, we'll see what I can find! Oh yeah... and I'm still holding Nevu's sketch hostage! lol jk
Yay Michaels! I love that store...
yep! oh and Kal i almost forgot! I redrew the sketch for you and your wife last night. Itll be up on my thread in a few :D
sweet! thanx vod
no problem :D its just you did such a great one for me, i wanted to give you something better :D
currently scanning :D
:D makes me happy! lol I wish I could finish up the ones I've got right now... but I'm currently out of black and the very dark grey I use for a black substitute so that the outline shows up... also EXTREMELY low on most of my other greys, Wildcat Blue (aka true blue/royal blue) and very low on red and my foliage, OD and hunter greens are low too. I use a lot of color! lol
i checked the micheals here in saskatoon and they didnt have the markers that you use :(
really? oh no they may've stopped carrying them! Oh my what am I gonna do then? lol I haven't checked down here in a while, bought the ones I'm on now about 4 months ago over in Destin... They should have some equivalent tho, even in Saskatoon.
they had tons of kinds (i dont remember any of them though) what were they called again? maybe i just got it mixed up
Fibracolor is the brand, I think they're called professional series... although I know that they are in a 100 count rack. It's a black plastic rack that holds 100 white bodied (color of the ink is the color of the lid) fine tip markers.
ok i think i looked for the right ones. When looking for other markers what would be a decent price to pay?
like 20$ set?
that's what I paid... it depends a lot on the brand and such. for a 100 color set u could pay up to $100 if it was one of the more expensive brands... Fibracolor works great and they're cheaper. Yeah tho if I had to pick a price I'd say $25 or less.
alright thanks :D ill go back to micheals some time soon :D
lol glad to help!
i cant wait to color some of my sketchs!!!
yeah it's actually probably the most fun part of workin' on 'em, except if u mess up u can't fix it without redoing the whole sketch...lol
that's why you make a scan of the B&W first :)
well my plan is to draw it, scan it, print it, color it :D
So pretty much color the printed version so if i mess up i dont mess up the original :D
lol yeah... that's proally smart and that's what I do when I'm planning on riggin' up a dozen or so similar sketches... but... my philosophy is do it right the first time! lol it makes 'em a lil more special if it's the only copy out there.
you got a point there :D
ok sorry guys about the delays but... I have news. I have all the sketches that were requested EXCEPT for Pacx's done... just waiting to get my scanner fixed. I'm hoping to have it back up soon, but haven't been able to go pick it up yet due to my work schedule.
whats wrong with the scanner?
Hey Kal, i was wondering now that you have finished most of your sketch load could you do another for me? I know you are extremely busy and dont be afraid to say no! Thanks
yeah the scanner eats paper, I'm hoping to have it fixed this weekend so I'll get 'em posted. Have to sketch my bucket up for A'den too. As for a sketch, what're u wantin? The nature of the sketch will determine if/when I can do it, I have an EARLY mission tomorrow... I have the weekend off tho! lol So... let me know what u're wantin'
Ill give you the best description i can :lol I have been wanting to sketch this for awhile but i have never had the time, and i think it would look better if you did it :D
I want to be about to kill a member of the Deathwatch :D Foot on his chest with my blaster pointed at his head looking down at him menacily. What you think?
Oh wait i almost forgot
Heres a good picture for refrence of a Death Watch Mando
hmm... it can be done... it may be a week or more before I can have it ready tho. Have to get everything else scanned, and I need to do a lil touch ups on colors before I do that, BTW... just found out I'll have my scanner back up saturday.
YAY! thanks so much! take as much time as you need :D Cant wait to see all the redraws you did
lol yeah there were a lot! I have a feelin' I'll have my 4th page after I post 'em all.
ok really bad news vode... I ruined the sketches! I spilled my drink on my sketch book and it soaked almost ALL of the sketches that were on top. All of my AFSOC mando sketches, Ori'Ad's, A'd'ika's and Mer'ika's sketches are ALL RUINED!!! :'( The good news is I was able to save Nevu's sketch because it wasn't in the book, it was laying in my bedroom floor instead of the living room. I'll restart those tonight and try to have all sketches done this weekend. BTW... my scanner works now... turns out that there was a small shred of paper stuck down in there that was scrunching up the pages as they were fed in. Nothing to put up tonight tho because I am working dilligently to redraw the destroyed sketches. I'll get 'em up ASAP.
NOOOO! :'( all your hard work!
OUCH :( it's cool, don't rush to redraw, take your time.
I guess im pretty lucky! Lol so you'll have the pictures up sometime tommorow? Whenever u can, glad mines ok! lol sorry that you have to redraw so many others.
well... I have Mer'ika's done now (again! lol)... just have to get the other 2 done... still waiting on Pacx to update his pics for references on that one too! lol I also now have one to work on for Lev'ika so... yeah I'll try to have 'em done tomorrow, after I get my yard work done.
