Ruddy by Mr--Jack Ruddy by Mr--Jack
I've had an idea for a while of painting mecha inspired by various birds (more so colour schemes and patterning rather than mechs that look like birds) and so here's the first, inspired by some lovely little Ruddy Ducks that I saw at San Diego Zoo yesterday (I've always loved their simple stylishness)

There are some perspective and symmetry issues but I had fun with it and I'm going to try and do some more of these quick-ish-ly I think so hopefully that will all improve as I go.

Enjoy!

Great image! Is there anywhere on the web where you have posted a process tutorial on how you paint? What layers and brushes used and such?

This is really cool, I love the bold colours and these aggressive shapes. I also quite like how you managed to paint a pose that looks as if he jumped down, slides and is about to come to a halt. And all that with a very loose and brushy feeling. Very neat work!
