They're the Elite Tactical Armaments Vault, of course - an organization of engineers and mercenaries, which have dedicated their lives to manufacturing and improving high-end military technology. The mercenary subdivision is to ensure the constant flow of credits, necessary for the firepower. Pff, everyone knows THAT.
i dunno man i guess i get as much brutal feedback on each piece and then i try to incorporate what i learn into the next piece. So i think if i can put that into a simpler terms it would be the community of people such as yourself that are my pills. If i didnt start making friends etc i wouldnt have near half the improvement. Of course trying to sketch/paint as much as I can helps a whole lot. Ive seen a fair improvement since ive started keeping a sketchbook.
Of course what im drawing etc when you boil it down is not really all that original. Its just a guy in an armoured suit and a big gun.
All im really trying to do is focus on proportions of character and lighting. All the other bits are just the chocolate topping with a sprinkling of nuts.
