Still having a love affair with my sketchpad... came up with this guy yesterday and today decided to color it up in Adobe Photoshop...

I suddenly remembered how before as a little boy I used to draw those old Japanese Giant anime robots. Back then if you couldn't afford the toys you could always draw them to make up for it. In the process you picked up a new skill along the way.

I had an uncle, who was good at drawing, sketch up a UFO: Grandizer for me once. Loved that piece of paper so much that I carried it with me all the time. I learned to draw that picture by watching my uncle draw it then practising and practising till I got how to draw it already from memory. Was more happy when I was able to draw good old Getter Dragon by myself.

Same illustration, but with texture effects added
