I really don't think this one needs any introducing... so I've been egged by Scorpiany the past few "How to draw" posts, and normally I'd tell myself, "just ignore 'em... you have a request list to go through, other people want to see other tanks too, you'll get to the 113 eventually" But... well, obviously something changed it. I dunno what the heck it was, but here we go. Errrrruuugggh.....


So... here's the 113, requested by Scorpiany.

Nothing different here than from my other drawings. Need and FOV/perspective basis.

Instead of drawing the basic hull shape first, I decided to draw basic outlines of the whole top figure including the track guards.

Top showing area mostly done, and getting started on the running gear.

Quite a jump in content here... a few hull details have been added, and a lot of progress has been made with the road wheels. Basic shape of the tracks themselves is also added.

Running gear mostly finished. Some tiny touch-ups added to the hull.

I'm going to draw the turret pointing at the camera, with the gun filling up the view, so I had to do it separately. These are dimensions measurements of the turret, matched up the hull's location already layer-wise.

Basic shape of the turret.

Turret with details.

Getting started with the gun.

Hull and turret mated together, with cleanup done on hull.

Canvas expansion and gun completed.

Shading and decals completed.


And the final image. Really only one thing was added between this and the final step: a self-portrait of mehs. A bit disconcerted with Scorpiany for the pestering(I know it was a bit of a joke :P). But, he appears to be quite the community contributor, so I feel like he deserves a tank. As for drawing this tank... it was a bit difficult- mostly because the hull was so hard to maintain the perspective with... the shallow angling of the front was tough. But other than that, the WZ120-esque turret and the tracks were pretty easy, and drawing the gun big and in-your-face was kinda fun to try out.

Since I did this, I'd like for you all to see my current request list:



If there's any in there you'd like to see, I'll see if I can do it next. And of course- I'll take other requests of tanks I haven't done yet, and add it to the list.


And I know a couple of you have been requesting color art... Color art takes a LOT longer than these works I'm doing here. I'll see if I can get around to doing one, but I'll need to set a lot of time aside.

Nice 113.

I've never seen anyone draw that good before.

This is great! I really enjoy looking at these drawings, and the 113 is the most fun I've ever had in a Tier 10 heavy...

Thank you very much for the drawing, Messedec! I love the extra touches with my name & pictures of a scorpion - You really went above and beyond in this one for me. I appreciate it! :)

Wow, you are really good at drawing it. :) Oh, why not use bulk watermark GIMP to edit the drawings, it's the free PS. Really powerful.
