My rubbish attempt
Well... basically... I, erm... reinstalled my Graphire and took yet another try at using it... and this was the best I could come up with. OK, admittedly I only set aside a couple of hours to do it and I was semi distracted by a game invite on my Xbox, but to be honest... it is rubbish, don't you think? Basically I was trying to sketch up an idea I had... something that wasn't a superhero - because superheroes are a bit... meh in my opinion - but had some form of power. I was going to make this guy an aeromancer, but I screwed up the hand and just made him a pryomancer instead.
And yes... I hate drawing hands.
And the whole Aeromancer/Pyromancer idea wasn't nicked from GW... the Air/Earth/Fire/Water magic concept has been part of a few videogames. And Captain Planet, even if they did have an extra element (Heart) in that one.
Soooo... judging from that pants effort (one of quite a few), what do you reckon: Give up and stick to small pixel art or keep trying?
