Everyday 012 – Hacker

The name for this piece actually came before the drawing. I was thinking one day about how infiltrating or attacking a computer system uses the same verb as striking something repeatedly with an axe or a sword: hacking. That got me imagining a sort of futuristic assassin who’s known for cutting the heads off cyborgs….

Everyday 005 – Portrait of a Woman

As with yesterday’s companion piece for this drawing, Portrait of a Man, the aim was to give this woman a demeanor and gaze that is clearly intelligent but not influenced by human emotion. The inspiration for it was a reaction against popular fiction in which androids are indistinguishable from humans, such as replicants in Blade…

Everyday 004 – Portrait of a Man

There’s a popular theme in fiction to portray artificial lifeforms as being so much like humans that they are fundamentally the same. An obvious example of this is Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? / Blade Runner, which depicts replicants as being nearly indistinguishable from humans, to the point where replicants even worry about their own…

Everyday 002 – Cyber Chicken

Is there anything better in life than a chicken? They make me laugh just looking at them. There will be plenty of chicken-themed drawings to come in these everydays, and since I’ve been doing a lot of science fiction drawings and working on curating my Cyberpunk Synthwave playlist, it seemed fitting to do a cyber…

Super Mutant vs. Power Armor (Ink)

I was pretty disappointed with how my inking turned out on a couple other recent drawings (like the Cyber Demon), and so I was determined to be more disciplined and deliberate on this Fallout 4-themed drawing. I’m much happier with how this one turned out. This was completed with a pair of brushes, India ink,…

Underground (Ink)

As I mentioned in my post on the pencil version of this drawing, I was still rusty working on this one (it was one of the few drawings I’d done on paper in many years), and that extended to the inking phase. Things got a little rough in spots and there are clearly some indecisive…

Cyber Demon (Ink)

As I mentioned in the pencil art version of this drawing, I really wanted to create an interesting shape for this figure that could be a compelling and identifiable silhouette. I was looking forward to doing the ink because I knew it would help the figure push against the negative space around it, and I’m mostly…
