Pilot Sketch 1


First sketches for my cargo elicopter pilot, I am looking for a costume that is comfortable but protective and I also imagined something for cold places. The side, rear and front view of the model need much more work.

Update: Added the ref page, i'll post some basic sketches soon sorry for having jumped the stages
Update 2: Added some silouhette studies

Close Support Craft Pilot 01

A bunch of initial sketches and silhouettes. I want my pilot to be very tall and elongated as well as physically fit so he'll be able to fly in higher altitudes as well as low. Also, I want to give ham a cool indifferent attitude like a Danish pedestrian. ^_^
I guess his costume should be less chunky and somewhat streamlined since it seems that's where new engineering is taking us.

Unfortunately, I found it hard to find much info about the smaller accessories/gadgets in a pilot's attire, but I did find it very helpful to get an understanding of the various uniforms' general functions.

Here are my refs:

Have a great and well-deserved holiday, mia/mi famiglia/familia di/de Viborg! Skype you again in the new year! :)

New Assignment!

Hey guys, great job on the last round!

Here's the specs for the next asssignment for Andrea and to refresh the memory of you other guys :P

assignment #3: The pilot

 Now that you have these fabulous military vehicles, it needs a pilot! Here's what to do:

step 1- compile a reference sheet of what pilots wear these days ( google is a good place to start )

put together a sheet of features that you like ( as I did with the jeeps and tanks for you guys last time ). While you're at it, read up on the subject so that you have some understanding of how these things work and what all of the little gadgets do.

step 2: do a few rough sketches to get an idea of the body type, facial features, suit shape, etc

step 3: the ultimate goal is to have a character turnaround sheet like this:

At the least I want you do do a front and back, but if you want to do a side or 3/4 that's good too. You can choose the pose you like- arms at the side is fine, but if you want it to look more pro, use the bind pose ( arms out )

As I said, I'll be out this friday and next, but I'll be checking in on the blog from time to time, so put your stuff up so I can see what you've been up to!

let me know if you have any questions!
