Master Chief with Speed Painting by BonnyJohn Master Chief with Speed Painting by BonnyJohn
Watch the SeeBonnyDraw episode here! : [link]

I should have uploaded this sooner, for I finished this months ago! However, I wanted to wait until the speed painting video was done, which you can find here! [link]

Stupid Hurricane Sandy delayed me and the SeeBonnyDraw series a bit, but we're in good standing now since I feel like I'm doing pretty well with the art and advertising the channel, although I can always improve, obviously!

Please subscribe and share my channel if you enjoy this art and the video! Thanks guys!

Fantastic work. The details are so hard to get right (drew him once for a bday card for my brother) but you did a great job with it.

Thanks a lot!  How long ago did you draw the art?  You can challenge yourself to draw it again if you're up to it to see how much you've improved!

aww no problem. 3 years since I last drew something so I'm really out of it.
IDK if I could recreate this now so if anything i'll start off simple with anime or something.

That's the thing - you shouldn't ever hole yourself into a situation without really knowing what exactly you're capable of.  I would be more pumped to go back into something difficult and test out my skills raw versus your current thought.  You have a lot more talent that you don't give credit to yourself for!

Rather than creative, go straight forward to figuring out where your technical skills are at this moment.  From there, the creativity should take over!  

Either way, I suggest drawing from life, like people nearby and what not.  The organic subjects will teach you how to draw in other ways that still life/fan art cannot teach!

aww is that so? I'll definitely try and step out of my comfort zone then and see. If you think of any creative ideas for me to try, let me know :)

I love your style! You don't start out with guidelines, but instead, you start out lose and then gradually tighten it up as you move along. I also like how you used the thick outlines around the edges to make your pieces pop.

Thank you!  I wouldn't stay I don't start with guideline, but as you mentioned, the loose build up that tightens along serves as a "guideline".  So its yes and no.  As for the thick outline, the piece felt too..."blurry" for lack of a better word, and containing it all into the outline helped "secure" the piece.  I have no idea if that makes sense but that's as close as I can say to describing that choice! haha

Thanks kindly!  I was experimenting with a textured brush which I would never have considered for a character with a metallic suit, but I had success with a piece before (Assassin's Creed 3 fanart) and decided to give it a try!

After before clicking on the link, I mistook this for 3D artwork.

Well played, sir.
