    Apr 13, 2009, 3:30 PM - Custom Mando Art #1

    Hey guys and gals, just wanted to let everyone know... Mandos are my thing when it comes to my art. If anyone wants a sketch of their custom mandos just post a picture to draw from in this thread and I'll do what I do when I can do it. I'm also on deviantart.com as sigpro54.

    Actually, my Avatar is a comic sketch that I found on google images... I liked it so I saved it... used it as my desktop background for a long time... unfortunately I cannot find anyone who knows who the original artist for this pic was... If I could I figure that out I would definately like to give them props/credit for their work.

    Are you using standard plates and westar 34's? If so I will add you to the list... I'm kinda swamped at work right now and have a few requests from Mando Mercs ahead of you... but I WILL GET TO IT! Promise! lol btw... I love your color scheme.

    Here's the first of my "custom mandos." This is the first time I've tried digitally inking the sketch and I know it's not that great, so I'll post the hand colored version as soon as it's ready.

    Ok, here's the first set of custom sketching... This is a mando by the name of therealmccoy aka lucas mccoy from Mandalorian Mercs. Hope you like it, I'm still working on my style and skills so be patient with me. I've also finished a sketch of my own upcoming armor design, so I'll have it up in my WIP thread soon. The one on the right is the original, the 2 on the left are my sketches.

    BTW, I misread your question, my screename for deviant art comes from my email address. I just came up with it after playing with a Sigpro pistol a friend of mine had the day before at the range.

    Are you using photoshop to render your sketches? If so, I have some advice if you'd like. Put your linework on one layer and set the layer properties to "multiply." This makes white transparent but black remains solid. Do any color layers under your linework layer. No need to magic wand and delete white space between pencil/pen lines. Much cleaner and neater. Also, you can darken up your sketch lines by adjusting the saturation and levels of your linework layers.

    Hope this helps and keep up the sketching.

    Yeah I'm actually using gimp 2.6, it works almost exactly the same as photoshop. I haven't tried the layering, I will definately give it a shot. Thanks for the advice, I'm always open to it and looking for it, that's actually the primary purpose for me posting my artwork online. I will try the "multiply" technique with my next sketch, I believe C1RCA is up next.

    Hey guys just wanted to give an update, C1RCA's mando is done and just needs to be scanned, sorry C1RCA I'll get to it this weekend...promise. I also have a few more that I've obtained permission to sketch that will be coming up, but first... I have a group of very close friends for whom I am designing mandos, so those will probably be the next few posted following C1RCA's sketch. Until I get those done, I'll probably be putting the others on hold. Thanks for the support! Also, my own two customs for myself and the wife are still in the design phases, and I have my own WIP thread up discussing those if anyone is interested.
