Patron’s Stream Sketches – 03/23

Hey everyone!

Here are my sketches from last week’s Patron stream.  From here on out, my supporters on Patreon will get early access to any of my works from a Twitch stream until I make them public a week later.  Then they’ll show up here for anyone to see at any time!

I stream once a week and work on a variety of ideas.  I often take suggestions like these from the audience.

To see what and when I’m streaming next, find me at twitch.tv/mlneidig.
My supporters at Patreon get first look at my stuff, so if you miss a stream you can always consider pledging your supporting at patreon.com/mlneidig.

‘Till next time!

Warcraft – Goblin Engineer Pt. 4

Wheegil 3

I honestly thought that I’d put down all the flats and be done, but then I decided to play with shading and highlights on the skin tone. Now it practically begs to give the rest of the character the same treatment. So much for a stopping point, but at least I can play around and maybe end up with a painted work to show off.

Warcraft – Goblin Engineer Pt. 2

What I love about working overnight is the blocks of time I have after I finish reports where it’s just dead and I only get a call every 20-30 minutes. I spent the last couple of hours listening to stand up comedy specials on Netflix while working on the lineart of this piece.

The player whose character this is resorts to some armor choices in-game because they’re simply the best available option. Armor generally sucks on Goblins because the assets get scrunched on their tiny in-game models. Puzzling out the character’s aesthetic with the player was fun, though.

I’m pleased with the gloves and the wear and tear. He’s pleased with the boots and the ears. Everything’s shaping up.

From a technical aspect, though, there’s this annoying thing going on where my eraser is too… round. It ends up making some lines look super spider-y. I don’t know how else to describe it. I either need a more precise eraser, or one with less of a harsh flow. I might experiment with that.

Warcraft – Goblin Engineer

I’m offering to do a quick character sketch of a friend’s Warcraft character, a Goblin Hunter styled as an Engineer. The point of this exercise is to establish a reasonable turnaround time so that when I begin offering commissions, I can give a timeframe.

And I’ve been awful about timing myself. Let’s say this is an hour and a half’s work.
