I told you not to touch that. by ChemicalAlia I told you not to touch that. by ChemicalAlia
Get off my lawn, boy!

The engineer from Team Fortress. It went from being a simple sketch to a rough colored sketch with a nice painted background, and then last night around 2 am, I decided that I had to ink it, so I ended up completely redoing the foreground. Decisions! :(

Anyway, I'd like to draw pictures like this for all the characters. Any suggestions for my next one?

What a terrible location! :( It's out in the open, a Sniper could take it out ;o;

I'm suprised he even managed to build a level 2 turret in that area! Whenever I try it, it gets sniped down or blasted when it's still building a lvl 1 turret :(

I feel so dirty for having most playtime on the engineer, but that's because no one was coming into our base!.. At least I still have my highest score on Sniper and Demoman, so I'm happy about that. =P

Fun drawing, I should try to make TF2 works myself.

Taking out turrets in that spot and on the battlements is pretty much the only reason I ever use the soldier class, actually. And you totally should.

Soldier is the class I take when they start rushing our forts... and having killed me too much in rapid succession. I can't stand the thought someone is dominating me, so I put on my big boy briefs, use an overcompensating weapon, and feed some FUCKING CHEAPASS ROCKET CRITS to them! =D

I like the picture, I think this would be better if you tried to simulate phong more. Just take it a little over the top, like valve did when they worked out the art direction for tf2.

Heh. Actually, it was originally a level 3, but the rocket launchers messed with the composition by covering up too much of the Engineer. So I just took them out.

Ah.. the engineer from Team Fortress. You really have to love that guy, especially after watching one of the promotional trailers for the game where he deploys the auto turret. :P Standing there with a wrench in hand whilst the turret wipes out a whole bunch of blue guys running into the room to kill him is just hilarious. :XD:

For the manner of progression this image has gone under, I must say that the final result is quite impressive. Painstaking by the sounds of what you put yourself through to achieve it, but worth the effort. :)

Right off the bat, you've captured the very look of Team Fortress, where all colour is very smooth that is extremely defined and shading comes across as tints and tones of such colours. One can only imagine the difficult task of finding the middle ground between oversimplification and excessive attention to detail, but you've really hit it on the head. Contrasting the woodwork and scrap metal next to the Engineer's outfit or the auto turret plating has never been more pleasing to the eyes. :D
Not even the smoking gun barrels subtract from the value!

Some of the perspective work is really awesome here, which is a technique I could never seem to fully grasp personally. I love how the background and middleground both curve in suiting the hilly farm setting, which not only remains consistent throughout the image in terms of depth, but also adds that extra touch to your work. :) The Engineer's hand, along with the alternate facing directions of the auto turret's two halves really grab one's attention to be the focus of attention, which is really what one would be aiming for. On the contrary, the ammo rails look rather wonky... :\

As for suggestions, It seems you have had plenty of feedback on that matter, but I think it should be more of a personal choice more than anything. :P

Keep up the amazing work you've been making lately Chemi. :)

Nice work.

Perhaps you could do a medic healing a heavy, but the heavy has the same name as the medic.

Or a medic with his bonesaw out.
