Hey Zexion,

Your off to a great start with the artwork. You have a good foundation, your proportions a good for the most part and your characters look like they are from the seed universe which is saying a lot because the gundam seed series has a very stylized form of artwork. I am by no means a professional and im still learning as well but I think I can give you a few pointers.

A lot of things just come from practice but there are some things that can help you. First what program are you using? I suggest if you are really serious about getting into art then you invest in a program like photoshop or painter. There are a few others around to but ive used both of those and are the best in my opinion. Next I suggest getting a tablet. This is really a must for doing art on the computer. A mouse can only get you so far and getting good with a tablet is worth every penny.

Once you do that I think that will solve one of your problems which is the line work. When you scan the work onto the computer and then paint over it you loose all of the line work you have done. A lot of artist can do it like that but its a really hard technique to learn and I dont suggest starting with that. I did a quick sketch to show you what I mean. If you look at number 1 on the image I attached, that is essentially a trace of your drawing with a few minor changes. But you can see how much the line work can improve on just flat colors.

The other thing is the shading. I liked the shading that you did with the Cassity image. The problem is that your light source is not consistent so it does not sell the shade. Light can be a very complex thing and take a long time to understand all the shading techniques but for the most part, if you look at number 2, the shading is all consistent. The light is coming from the right and the shade is on the left. All this comes with practice though. I suggest looking as many reference images as possible. Next time you look at a seed image really look at what they did and how they are shaded.

Overall I think your work is really good. But definitely look into a tablet and photoshop or painter. I think you will get much better results.

Well I can't speak for Infinity, but as for me the fact is I do come and post every time there is something to post. On a forum dedicated to a mod were no work is being done there is only so much that can be said. I really wish I did have the time necessary to get the mod done. But unfortunately I just have to much other stuff going on right now.

He's probably in the same position as me, just don't have enough time to work on the mod and can't see anytime in the near future were I really will. If you really need to get a hold of him he still hangs out on the sci fi meshes forum. However if he had the time to work on the mod he would probably be here.

Thanks guys, glad you like it.

Re4_wesker - Nice to meet you wesker.

Stargazer - Unfortunately my old computer crashed about a year ago and it had all the mod files on it. I don't think it was the hard drive so they should all be intact but the old drive is at my parents house and I really don't have the time dig it out and find a way to get the files. If you guys every find a coder ill be more inclined to got get them but its really pointless otherwise.
