that's why I'm an officer! lol jk jk, it comes from experience, being a father teaches u a lot of things
;) lol hopefully i get that experience some day
it's one of those things that comes with time... or... well u know...lol As for knowing what to say, learned a lot from my dad, he always seemed to have the answers. When I had my young'un, it just kinda clicked and I started learning some amazing things about how to deal with people. I'm an officer and a father, I like to think being good at the one makes me better at the other... yeah that was a We Were Soldiers quote! lol
Just wanted to share with y'all what I have right now, and what I'm working on. As you can see, the first two sketches are entirely my own work... the first is the back view of Kal Waco's armor, once finished there will be dead vong littering the ground, smoke rising from the trishot barrels on the left wrist, vong blood dripping from the blades and a smokey haze filling in the background. The second is a request from MedievalWolf over on deviantart... it's his RC mando, the environment was my idea...inspired by my stay out in the backwoods of Washington State last week. The Third is a battlescene I'm still working on, yes Lev'ika that's you I'm dragging to the LZ there, and Fi's holdin' her own on the right side, with the Larty coming in to save the day... will probably draw in some fighters of some kind doing RESCAS under Kal's expert control... also will be adding a few more mandos and baddies in there as well. After that we have the original painting that inspired this sketch, and a few more images that I am using as inspiration for a few more sketches I am starting today/tomorrow... home on Saturday and I hope to have everything colored and scanned in either right before we move, or maybe right after.
*Edit*- I apologize for the ****** quality of the pictures, my webcam's not the best in the world
Nice! Im just going to take a while guess and say that the one where you are dragging me is when we raiding the Jedi Academy. Just a guess :D. I like them :thumbsup except the fact that i look like a woosy :lol jk i like
hey dude... wounded and still fighting... that's pretty tough if u ask me ;) lol
I didnt notice that :lol nice
Im jelous, those sketchs are amazing
I've had plenty of time to work on 'em last few days... I start training back tomorrow so... we'll see how that goes.
good luck with that vod :)
thnx, i hear it's not too difficult. as for the sketch... any suggestions?
ok more stuff has since been added... fitted in another of the direcats, another LAAT/i (larty) and a pair of bes'uliik fighters as well as plenty more bad guys. Now also have a few more dialogue boxes here and there. I think it's time to put that one on pause and start the next one... I think it's time for my SAS mando to make an appearance!
I need to be the dude draggin' Levi'ka! I'm the medic here!!!
xD, nice work dude. I tried my hand at drawing a comic strip, needless to say it turned out... meh. you could tell it was a mando, at least ^^
just a question Kal, you might have said earlier but i didnt see anything, who are we fighting?
hmmm... i dunno maybe peace brigade and Vong, maybe seperatists... I dunno I've been in so many battles in so many eras! lol Especially since every time I get captured they decide I'm too dangerous and throw me and my team into cryostasis for twenty years! lmao
lol actually Pacx u're the dude hanging out of the Larty... besides, Fi's a medic too! lol Me thinks a medic would be more likely to treat the wound, whereas a guy like me ain't real sure how, so I just drag 'em to the medics and let them deal with it
I'm trained for certain types of injuries, but in a high stress situation where outbound fire/air support will be more likely to save 'em in the longterm than a bandage would... lol get 'em clear and go back to work
:lol Make sure to throw in the odd jedi if it fits
here's my sketch, SAS mando on the right... JasonStrk on the left... background and color are pending my return to Florida... The second image is the OC that inspired this sketch... for your comparison.
:cry Why? why are you so far ahead of me? :lol looks great kal!
Lev'ika I've been working on this since 0900 this morning! lol
Here's the 2 newest sketches as complete as I can get 'em for the time being, once again sorry for the low quality... using a camera instead of a scanner here.
Lol it would take me a day to get even one of those done
nah, the big one took me about 3 hours, the other took about 1.5... now with color it'd take even longer, usually color takes about twice as long.
Ya just wait until i start colouring, itll take me a week to get one done :lol (sometimes it does already)
lmao... speaking of which... what're u workin on right now?
the group one... but im eating right now :D
oic... yeah I'm waiting on some buddies to get back from the field so I can go eat with them.
mmm delicious tender *slurp* BURGERS!! :lol Kidding... if it makes you feel any better they werent very good
lmao I'm sorry ner vod, I can promise my dinner will be good... IF we actually go out to eat.
:lol well you cold always go get some Timmys, thats always good ;)
lol I think we're going to Steamplant... it's a decent restaurant/brewery in downtown Spokane, the food is GREAT!
hmmm sounds good :lol (actually dont have a clue, its just food makes me happy :D)
glad u like it... I was needing a scout to back up my SAS mando, the first person that came to mind was u. lol
Vod, those are awesome...:cheers
I totally love the one with Lev'ika and the larty...Kandosii vod!!!
thank you very much! That's a personal favorite of mine now... it turned out much better than I had hoped. I even added Fi and Shannyn in there, somebody's gotta keep those baddies pinned down right? lol
haha i cant wait to see it finished, might take a spot on my wall next to the first sketch you did for me :D
he he I think this one is one of my best works... in fact, I do believe Pacx is adding a few words for it into my legend :D dang I REALLY want to read that story! lol
Yes... but does Fi have any form of verifiable medical training?!
Neither do I
Did she serve with the 9th Mandalorian Medical Corps?!
:lol i guess I have many talents :D Oh and adonian... I passed you :lol
yup beat me by an even 100, cool. I'll catch up when I start my new thread.
haha probably :lol ........ since we're on Kals thread im not going to start anything haha
Did you see the pictures i put up to cheer him up?
:lol :lol :lol
I don't want to start a war here but come on Kal sponge bob is too funny. :D
haha.. come on Kal, its 3 against one :lol
lmao funny is a relative term... I just don't like Spongebob, that's all... just not my cup o' tea. I'll stick to Clone Wars and Military Channel
I attended a medical school for 3 years, and got a diploma in Emergency Medicine. It's kinda cool - I can take you apart, clean you, and put you back together again.
O.O i do not volenteer for a demonstration lol
Heheh.... volunteering isn't part of the process. I shall come to Saskatoon and take you while you sleep... *evil laugh*
AAAAAHHHHHHH!! good thing i live on a farm outside of saskatoon... *WHAAA HAHAHA*
You have forgotten the key rule of not wanting me to find you. YOU JUST TOLD ME WHERE YOU ARE. So All I have to do is go to Saskatoon and ask around. It's Saskatchewan, how hard can THAT be.
I know :lol i did that on purpose :lol but the thing is you dont know exactly where :lol and no one knows me in saskatoon.. :lol mostly
boy thats a lot of laugh emots!!
kal can you add me to the mando mass sketch?
ja ich kann... lol yes I can, do you mean my mass group sketch or the battle sketch? stickin' with the green mando?
battle sketch look over at my post for the colors
@Jango: Not 100% sure, will see what I can do.
hey guys just wanted to let everybody know that I will have some backowed sketches and the completed sketches that I came up with on my own colored and ready to post by the time I get back from my vacation... not sure tho so we'll have to wait and see.
Vacation? Slacking, are we?
Buy a hot dog for me, would ya?
lmao yeah had to take the family to disney, we still had 3 days left on our tickets... we used all 3 days. Anyhow, relocating to OK on Monday, have to get outprocessed and finish packing this weekend, I'll do my best to get those sketches finished. I have 2 completely finished and 2 waiting for some finishing touches.
better than me bro :lol
oo can you get me a sword from the pirate ride? jk jk
I always have wondered what kind of star wars atractions that they have. We were going to go a while ago but the funds we did have ended up going towards other stuff :/
I know the feeling, still trying to figure out how I'm going to pay off that trip...lmao yeah the star wars attractions are cool, but they only have 1 ride and the 1 show, which features jettise of all characters, as well as Vader and a couple of stormies... the full motion sim ride is pretty cool tho, a little oldschool with the video sequences but it is very cool.
Nice :) even though i cant complain. We are hitting the west ed mall next weekend :D 3 days!
lol sounds cool!
Levi, if you don't have time to come to Disneyland, just do the virtual thing...
Art, please ^^
Thats awesome Adonian! i just wanna go more now! :lol
And Pacx if you dont want to be included in our thread jacks *:lol* then you dont have to
We get to know each other better this way
I suggest you don't anger the guy that keeps your *** alive and fighting on the battlefield...
:lol, you die before my guy is born :D
Not since the revision of my biography, fraulein.
really? is the updated one posted anywhere?
It will be.
Wow im still going through that Disney Land thing! I clicked on main street and the music hooked me! Then i realized it was Jump5 and realized that they used to be my favorite band a few years back... great song, and is perfect for disney land
:lol Pacx dont you ever have something nice to say?
Nope, doesn't amuse me at all. You're the motivator, I'm the guy that goes around and makes people want to kill themselves ;)
*clap clap clap clap* We've got pride! *clap clap clap clap*
Just kidding :lol Might wanna take something for that bro ;)
Arpiprazole, citalopram and prozac does it for me.
Hey Pacx, love the new "Location"
Yeah, I thought a *boom* was too demolitions than medic
hey vode... I know u guys are expecting some colored sketches to get posted... problem is I didn't get 'em done before the move. We're now moved and trying to get settled in OKC, OK. So... I will be finishing up the sketches shortly and will get them posted as soon as possible. Now for some more exciting news... well, to me anyways! I just picked up a new book... on digital painting! Hopefully I will be able to use my new book to learn how to take my art to the next level with digital color and background.
Am I the only slightly nor- wait i have my crazy bits here and there
just for everyone's knowledge... while I am still accepting requests, due to the difficulties I'm encountering with my family's move, I may/may not be able to do it very quickly. In the meantime... Jango425 has offered his services as an artist, so... if you're in a hurry for a sketch, I can refer you to Jango425 or to lev'ika aka Alpha-02 (altho lev'ika may be as slow as I am! lol)
So true about me being slow :lol I ended up getting a start on circas but you know how vacations go LOL I start a sketch.. End up turning on the tv... Go for a swim... U get the point haha
Anyways those are truely amazing bro! I love how you must have like 5 different ideas for mando armor now LOL
lol yeah I have a lot... but I have fun coming up with these things. It's my favorite past time! lmao BTW... I expect to see a few new sketches out SOON ner vod. I really want to see my sketch finished!
T-thats undiluted awesome...
SICK that is sooooo awesome
Ok vode, now's time for one of my awesome group sketches! The plan for this one is the group of vode who I have become so very closely associated with on here, my inner circle of mando'ade as it were, the ppl whose opinions actually count when it comes to my art and armor work.. So... sometime today I need the following PM'd to me by my vode that I socialize with the most: (Jason, A'den, Lev'ika, Adonian, Pacx, Ordeyn, Mereel, SaberMaker [and NomadBride even tho I don't know her well, she's ur cyar'ika so we can't leave her out], Nevu and the relatively new addition to the group... Jango) (read disclaimer at bottom of the post)
1. Either a picture of your completed armor (with you in it! lol)/ a current concept sketch/ a current, detailed description of it.
2. Your height/hair color/build
3. Answer this question: Do you want to be shown with/without your buy'ce on? (if without I need to know what your face looks like)
I NEED THIS INTEL ASAP SO THAT I CAN PROCEED WITH MY SKETCH AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. A'd'ika u don't need to send me a picture, I have it already, Lev'ika just tell me what to modify from my older sketches and same for Ord'ika. Jason I think I already have a good one of ur armor but PM me one just to be safe. Otherwise I need all info. If you have more than 1 armor set that I helped u design... let me know which one u want me to use. I'm also PM'ing everyone to try to speed up the process.
(Disclaimer: If your name is NOT on the list and you feel it should be... don't fret... this is actually just the start of a much, MUCH bigger sketch, that will see the addition of dozens of other mando'ade as it progresses, thanks for your patience and cooperation)
