Requested by Iron_Tsunami, is the really underwhelming... albeit, novel, AMX-40 French "Light" tank. For this one, I kept the final image simple, as getting the contours right and to scale was hard enough as it was. The turret was surprisingly easier to draw out than I figured.

 

Here I drew the basic outline of the whole tank, including the tracks, and marking where the road wheels go. Looking at this now, you're probably thinking I got the profile spot on, almost like a trace? HAH! Wrong.

I got so frustrated trying to draw the turret, nothing looked right... so I just erased the whole top of the hull and gave every corner and intersection I could a hard mark measurement to draw from. In the meantime, I drew the track covers.

Here, the hull turned out a whole lot nicer. If you compare it to my first drawing, this one matches the AMX40's profile a lot better.

Here, I add a few details to the turret, and draw out the machine gun nub on top of the turret.

Here, I mostly finish the turret and then draw out the gun. Fortunately, the gun's barrel isn't incredibly long and won't warrant a canvas resize.

 

And here's the final image. Just a tiny bit of shading to make it look good, mostly on the gun. And then details for the running gear. Past that, I want to leave it alone for the sake of simplicity. It was definitely different from a lot of the other tanks in terms of how I went about drawing it... the bubbly, curvy nature of it definitely made it strange. The hull was definitely the hardest to get down.

Hopefully I can keep these up... I gotta do the E-25, I think I'm going to boost priority to the Cromwell, a lot of people seem to want that one.

I suppose I'll have to make sure I put inscriptions on the next few! I do enjoy giving tanks a bit of character.
