Tank Art And my Progression
Okay, so I posted some art earlier, and people ate it up.
So I am going to make a small art gallery here in this post and go through the progression of me drawing tanks.
We'll start way back in 2011. I was just getting familiar with drawing tanks, I drew custom tanks I thought up of. And gave them stats and stuff as if they were in world of tanks. The lines pointing to parts saying other tanks names doesn't mean that that part if off that tank, but simply inspired by it.
(I had no idea what balancing was back then don't judge me! xD)
There is too many of these. I'm moving on, anyways. Eventually I decided trying to take on 3D tanks. I didn't do too many of these way back when.
Then I discovered a 3D Physics game called. "Algodoo Phun Edition." I learned how to build on this program. And started building tanks on it. This caused me to stop drawing them for a LONG time.
Even at this, I started off bad, and got much better as time went on.
I built so many of these I think I'd break the forums posting all of them, so here is a screen shot of my Algodoo profile.
And there's more where that came from.
Moving on to where I am today I stopped building on Algodoo because my Phunlets would be in the game, but not in my documents. And I could no longer upload them. I never figured out what the problem was, and still haven't fixed it. But since then I occasionally build a tank or two.
So, after a couple years of schooling and puberty, I had become much more seasoned with how tanks look. So I started drawing them again. I drew a very realistic drawing of a Rhm-Borsig waffentrager, that unfortunately could not be here today due to a misshap with my art teacher. She was offered a job at a different school that was much closer to her home, and she had a baby son that would need her more than often. So it was a no brainer for her to take the job. Unfortunately she was marking the Borsig when she switched. And accidentally stole it when she transferred. ; A ;
On the upside, I was very satisfied with the Waffentrager and decided to tackle another tank. One with more detail to really challenge myself. I decided to draw an M53/55 SPH. I thought it had too much detail and quit on drawing it. But then about 6 months later. I tackled the M53/55 again. And it looked amazing.. So amazing in fact. That someone bought it for 25$, thus declaring me a professional artist.
Since then I have done some very nice pieces of work. However. Most of them are too big to fit on my tiny scanner! >.<
Fortunately, I managed to stuff this Panther in there, this one wasn't quite a masterpiece but it certainly was eye-candy.
And eventually this leads up to my drawing of a Couple FV's. I realize with this piece that I love drawing tanks. And will definitely do more with my talent. Eventually.
Hope everyone enjoys the drawings and the little story with them!
