Requested by xXGROWLINGDOGXx and iBeany, is a tank I really should've done a lot earlier in this list... the Hellcat.

Of course, I drew the hull first. And it was relatively easy from this perspective, I figured the front would be hardest if I went for a crazy perspective.

Here I'm just drawing circles covering the location of the wheels relative to the hull. They turned out a lot smaller than I wanted, so I'll be enlarging them for the next step.

Here I covered the track guards, and fixed the wheels. Made them the proper size to get started on the detail.

And here's all the running gear and the flaps detailed and done.

Here's me getting started on the basic shape of the turret. I also added the canvas, which to make sure I knew as I finished the tank that it was the canvas... I detailed right off the bat.

Details added onto the turret. This is probably the first tank I bothered to detail the machine gun on top- I actually put some decent effort into the Madeuce on top. Mostly because the rest of the tank aside from the running gear was kind of featureless, and I felt like I needed more of a challenge. I also drew the tin attachment that you'd keep the Jerry can in, but... no Jerry can, for the sake of variety.

The finished image with some shading and the gun. Yes, I used what is in WoT the "Stock turret", with the canvas, because that's pretty much how you'll see the Hellcat in it's historical configuration. No customizations for this guy- just a good looking Hellcat all on it's own.

I know a lot of you tasteful, true, hardcore Hellcat drivers who still appreciate and adore your post-nerf Hellcat(I commend you, by the way, for your commitment to your favorite tank) will enjoy this, so I hope you do. I'll likely be doing the E-100 next, I'll try to do it by tonight.

Awesome, how do you draw these? Like what software/hardware is being used? I'm interested in this electronic drawing stuff. :)

It'd be cool to see an S-51 with a couple crew members leaning against one of the railings.

Thanks a bunch! And that's why I'm opting for these side-views with a slight angle on the front with less FOV, so it's a good stepping stone for you guys to give it a shot on drawing it, and it's still 3D. Nice ortho of the Leo btw :great:

I use a Thinkpad X60 Tabletconvertible laptop computer(can be had on ebay for $100-150), with Adobe Photoshop CS5. The screen has a Wacom digitizer behind it, so the screen picks up the stylus and if you use a genuine stylus, it reads pen pressure like a USB Wacom tablet. It is very much like drawing on paper, which is why I use it.

Oh wow... I'll totally have to do that. Drawing the people might take a bit more time, but that would be cool.

I've got it on the list already, someone requested I do it in color, and I want to see if I can do that. If I do end up doing it in color, it will definitely be one of my more time consuming projects.
