Sikopio's Artland

Post by Sikopio on Sun Jun 12, 2016 6:01 am

Hello! I've received some requests from some peeps (particularly Steve who has been dogging me to DEATH ABOUT IT I SWEAR I'LL STRANGLE HIM) to open my own Art Dump page. I'll put up some of my newest work first. I hope you all enjoy!


Eyota, a Native American lady I decided to draw!

This is Spekkal's character! I drew him for her during an Art Trade!

This is Phoenix. As pointed out by Shrike, her armor is from SWTOR which is where I got the idea for her from.

This is Xyrrah! She's an angry dragon lady that likes to use poisons n' stuff to weaken and kill her victims.

Well hey-hey, seeing you post up this topic was a pleasant surprise! You have some really great work, so it's awesome to see you posting it up.
I'm particularly fond of this armoured dragon, hadn't seen that one before! I'm a big fan of fantasy design and aesthetics, but always struggle with fully comprehending mentally how armour slots it's way together, so I can always appreciate a character in very genuine-looking protection like that.

Wow, these are beautiful! I wish I had talent like that!
They are so professionally done *.*
You must have spent a lot of time perfecting them because holy moly. :3

Thank you all for the compliments! It means a lot! I love Sci-fi/Western/Fantasy stuff a lot, and I draw a lot of inspiration from those genres.

I'm also a fan of bulky armor. I stray away from skimpy outfits because I've never liked the idea of going into battle in nothing but a bra and undies like a lot of the characters in films/games/etc. these days. X_x Thank you though, Dregan!

They do take me quite a while. The line-arting is pretty quick once I figure out what I want to draw. It's the coloring/shading that takes the most time, usually. I appreciate your kind words, Forevayoung! ^o^

You are correct, Shrike! A lot of the characters I've drawn were inspired by ones Steve and I have made in SWTOR, WOW, Destiny, etc. We like to create characters in games together and expand their stories. This often inspires me to draw them as Sonic/anthro characters which is a lot of fun! I appreciate the compliment, bud! Smile

I'll be uploading more soon!

This is Steve's character, Cyrus. He's an Egyptian-inspired character. I actually sketched this one with a pen then scanned it into my computer for coloring.


This is Leotta. She uses a sword and shield, but holds her sword upside down during fights. Figured it'd be a cool lil' unique fighting style.


Another one of Steve's characters, Dr. Stitcher! He's an evil doctor/scientist that uses a lot of biological warfare (poisonous gases, toxins, sedatives, etc.) against his enemies. He also likes to capture and torture/experiment on people. What a nice guy!


Pretty sure this one has been posted before, but this is Major Bailen, one of Steve's main dudes. He used to be Phoenix's partner/squad leader, but they had a nasty falling out and fought. That's how each of them got their scars. He Stabbed her in the face with his knife, while she blasted his face with her flamethrower. Needless to say, they haven't really talked much since.

That's all I have time to post for now. I'll put more up when I get the chance! Party on, people!

I like all the designs my fav is hands down the Havoc trooper, my Character takes a heavy influence from the Doom marine and his Praetor exo suit but I am looking into a redesign in the near future to a more unique look.

I can sorta go back-and-forth on that sorta thing personally. I mean, I think running around fighting in the underwear is ridiculous, but the practicality the armour often depends to me on the sort of series. Like, in a setting where the fighting can be quite brutal sword or gunplay or whatever, yeah, practical it up. But in series where the characters are like, shooting and being hit by giant lasers and oversized anime explosions and then getting up and carrying on... I kinda don't mind a bit of aesthetic-over-practicality. As long as the aesthetic isn't... y'know, revealing for the sake of being revealing.
Still, either way, bulky proper armour really is underutilised in fictions. Because I mean... it looks plenty awesome enough itself.

As for the latest pics... Yes. Yeeessss. Really dig Cyrus, though I've a big weakness for Egyptian aesthetics. I absoloutely adore them, and that one really hits the nail on the head.
Huge fan of the Dr. Stitcher pic too! The green glow in the dark with the whole lightning-backlighting thing going on is really awesome. Like, if I saw that guy approaching, I'd be like 'Wow, this dude is kickass'. Like I mean, I know the danger of been tortured and experimented on, but I could at least be like 'You know what? Despite all the horrors that are about to happen to me, I can at least appreciate how much of a badass is about to bring them unto me. And I respect that.'

A lot of the armor depicted in this games is very un practical in a real military or law enforcement world, Personal need to be mobile and adaptive to the world and situation around them, able to carry out objectives with out being hindered, the gear you carry is to serve you in almost any situation. Armor does work but its limited to how much and where it is placed. Armor like the armor worn by Master Chief and the latest version of Doom guy is very impractical for military use, heavily restricting movement of the soldier.

When I was still in the military (recently left) our gear did its job via protection but still offered great range of movement. You need gear that can both protect and be mobile enough. You don't want to have no protection and all ability and not the other way around either.  However it's not stopping the world from trying to make more body armor. In the gaming and fictional world it just looks so badass and impressive it has to be there, cause its awesome when you see it in action. 

But from all the characters I actually enjoy every single one of the designs the Havok trooper stealing the show for me of course.

@Dregan: Yeah, I'm not a fan of the whole 'revealing' aspect of outfits. Society and media as a whole seem to have pounded it into our brains that it's okay to wear skimpy clothes. I'm not saying that I hate anyone who does that with their characters. That's their opinion and I respect that, but I've just never been one to dress my characters like that, if that makes sense. >w<
Yeah, I've always loved Egyptian culture, so drawing that for him was a lot of fun! I've always loved Stitcher too! Steve and I have created a lot of interesting/dark RP's with that fella! It's been quite a ride!

@Shrike: Yeah, heavy armor in games always looks so awesome and comfy. Like you'd feel so protected and secure in your little shell. Not to mention it looks like they could stop a freight train just by blocking it with their shoulder. =w=
Armor that real world soldiers wear looks cool too. Let's hope they actually invent some kind of big mech-ish armor soon though! ;D

And they are doing just that, they working on a exo suit at the moment, mechanized system that amps up the strength of a soldier, So far its proving to be a huge success, the soldier was able to pick up a huge weight, which means a full military version could allow the soldiers to carry awesome armor along with massive firepower while still able to move fairly effectively, but its size would be a issue with going into CQB ( close quarter battle) for like buildings or house.

That is why I liked the Crysis nano suit, It was badass, flexible, enhancing not just armor, but the combat users strength along with speed. 

If I had to choose between today's stuff or heavy exo based armor....exo based armor rather easily. Or at least body armor.

A piece I did titled "I'll Keep Coming Back." I thought it'd be cool to combine the two contrasting characters together. They blend quite well :'D


Another picture of Phoenix in a different set of armor. This is the one I use for my avatar on SRN.


A colored sketch of Steve's character, Echo. Redesigned him with a more tactical military-ish look He loves bombssss.


A colored sketch of my character, and Echo's wife, Max! She's a mechanic and I sorta subconsciously gave her a pyro-like outfit from TF2! Oops!


Here's my cowboy lady. She just goes by the name "S".

These are all really good, Its interesting to note that I also have a " fairly new" character also named Echo. He bears some pretty hefty gear and armor.

I'm pretty sure there are a lot of Sonic characters out there named Echo. I've seen at least half a dozen! It's a pretty common name, but a cool one IMO. lol

I intend to make more bio's for my characters at some point in the near future. I'm hoping Sikopio gets a chance to do the same!

Right, I came to the party really late, so there's far more art here than I have the patience to comment on individually, but holy fricken crap I love your style so much. owo
Like ugh, you've got fluidity of pose and expression down to an
*snrk*
art form


But seriously I love your outfit designs. Like, legitimately, you have such good taste in creating outfits, even if some of them are cribbed from other series. Every one of your characters feels "sturdy", if that makes any sense. Like, it's just all really cool to stare at for a few minutes. CX
I quite like all these pieces. Always never not do art okay? owo

Am a fan of this set, particularl the expanded version of the piece you're using as your avatar! I'm always a fan of a piece that expresses a lot of the character's personality, and you can really see it in that one.

I will say, whilst I do like the design of Max, her name essentially she sounds like she's just got like... the maximum possible level of rickets. Like, she should get her bones checked out.
Also, as more a genuine piece of crit, I'd suggest in future maybe considering upping the size of her wrench slightly? It's probably not helped by Sonic proportioning, but it kinda looks like she'd have to pinch it to hold it right at that size - could maybe do with somethig a bit more chunky.

Thanks! I like that one a lot too, though I've grown fond of her new outfit. I tend to swap around and change outfits for a lot of my characters pretty often.

Heh, Max is actually just short for Maxine, and she took Echo's last name since they're married. Echo is his callsign, and his really name is Eddy Ricketts.
As for her wrench, you pretty much nailed it. The proportioning for Sonic characters is often really weird, so it's harder to fit a full sized wrench that she'd use on her more petite body, if you know what I mean. I used to stick closer to the SA2 and Archie style bodies, but I've started making them beefier for a number of reasons, that being one of them. Even still, I've tried larger objects like you suggest and it often ends up looking...off, if that makes sense. I totally get your logic though, and I agree! It just doesn't always pan out that way. lol

You can actually see that in some of my newer work I tend to draw their hands smaller to fit with whatever they are holding/using.

Here's something a little more abstract.



Here's a character I adopted and then changed him up a bit.



One of my older characters as a zone cop.



A sketch I did of another one of my characters, Zuri. I penciled this then scanned it in and messed around with the contrast.



Tried my hand at some birds. The one on the left is a Phoenix and the right one is a Griffin.



Here's my cowboy character in a sneaky agent outfit.

Got another bundle o' pics to upload. Here's some lighting practice I did a while back.



Here's an old one with old designs of me n' Steve's characters.



Commission of someone else's dog thing.



Aaand here's a link to an animation loop I did for a college class.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I just recently started doing Pony art. Here's what I've got so far.

My Scottish Clydesdale, Lilitrot.



And here's a painted horse named Dusty.



This one is a commission I did for someone named Bay Breeze.



And lastly for now, here's an elite royal guard design I came up with. His name is Cassius.



That's all for now, but I plan on drawing more of these as well.

Oop, just looking at the first of the two posts you made, really loving the flamethrower piece! Really enjoy things like that with more dynamic lighting.
Also, I have to say, really like the floppy ears of your older design. Don't tend to see that a lot with Sonic characters, most tend to go for the more upward/pointy ears - which is a shame, because I dunno... floppy is just kinda adorable. XD
Albeit 'adorable' probably not quite what you're going for with the character.
