Delta Squad Sketches by MyFantasiWorld Delta Squad Sketches by MyFantasiWorld
Delta Squad Sketches

I had posted these a long time I ago in The Coalition Forums when I finished them, and they were about to find themselves in the Artcrap I'm creating with a whole bunch of other scraps. However, I looked back and saw how appropriate they seemed as stand-alones, so I decided to put them up here for you guys. It has been SO LONG since I got to do any personal Gears Of War work, so while waiting for the release of the Ultimate Edition, I made some quick sketches and came up with the Delta Squad redesigns.

For those who have followed my work since the beginning of my account, I went through lots of sketches drawing Delta and the rest of Gears Of War characters in my own style. You'll notice that most of the design is still the same from how I previously drew them, such as Marcus' do-rag and his shape of his jaw or Dom's hair. But you'll notice that Marcus' scar is shaped differently, Baird's hair is appropriately shaped just like how he's seen in the first two games, Dom has the cool shade of facial hair, Cole's design - well, it improved, ha, ha, ha! - and Baird is missing eyebrows! (Known fact: Baird does not have eyebrows; look up the concept art and his model for it, it's true!).

So there you have it, this is what my current version of Delta Squad is and it is to commemorate the Ultimate Edition game. Enjoy!

i love the new designs they are amazing, you are such an inspirational artist. But poor Baird he doesn't have eye brows the poor blondie, and i like the look of Marcus and Dom it really shows their individuality and Cole still looks awesome :) you should be proud of your artwork and how good you are :) keep it up!! :3

By the way, I also did a second version of their design pertaining to the Ultimate Edition designs. Check it out when you can: myfantasiworld.deviantart.com/…

I really love your improvement. And I really love that you continue to work on gears-related stuff.
I know this is two months old, but would you mind hearing a mild critique? It's not about their characterization at all, more just a small tweak I would suggest about the proportions in their faces.

All I did was move the eyes on the right slightly more to the center left of the face. Personally, I think it centers the face better. It does kind of make the faces a bit more 'flat' in that you don't get so much of a dramatic sense of tilt in the head, but I'm sure you could work it into your style so that that doesn't happen.

Also, if you purposely draw them further apart because of a stylization choice, I completely understand that. Just something that caught my eye, thought I might share it with you!!

Thanks appreciate it.

Ahhh yeah, I knew someone would catch it sooner, but I'm pretty sure it's the most apparent mistake I make for all my drawings.

But hey, thank you for sharing that. One of my biggest flaws in my drawings is always and will be proportions. No matter how hard I try and no matter how long I take to try and master it, I can never get it. Because I'm so lost in the disproportionate style that I use for many of my drawings, my skills in making a face drawn proportionally has never been built.

In fact, having to study that slows me down because I stay on the same drawing for hours and I'm left with scrapping it at the end. But now that I let myself free to draw how I am now, it hasn't concerned me much since I prefer how I bring a lot of exaggeration, yet a tiny bit of realistic form, to the characters I draw.

So in short, I don't care much for proportions but just how I prefer to draw.

But thanks for pointing that out, as well as making an example for it, it is a good reminder to let me know I still need to find my skills to help improve in the realism field.

Did you ever draw Hoffman? Or Kim? Or Valera? They're such good characters. And , Jesus , I love the cartoonish way you draw them.

Thanks, appreciate it. And actually their shirts are based off of one of the first Gears of War comics where Marcus is wearing this kind of shirt. However, I altered it into my design to come up with it. =)

Glad you love 'em and you will see more, believe me. ;)

I'm glad about that too. And yes, I did delete a few artworks I posted recently, but they will be put back within an artcrap of mine. I'm just collecting more drawing to create it. =)

Thanks, I really have come pretty far, haven't I? Well expect more of it.

Lol, seems like Cole's a favorite now and these days. Glad you do. =)

Oh, I'm looking forward to it. <3 I was looking for this Color Me-picture of Anya and Marcus because I always wanted to color it. Unfortunately I never downloaded it. Any chance that it will be on someday again, too?

Yes, you have. :D And I'm so happy that we can expect more of it in the future. :love:

Oh I see, yeah, I took that down cause not many people were interested to color it. However, I do plan to redo it to fit to my current style. =)

Awww, actually if you have an Xbox One, you can download it for free, I believe. Or if you get the copy of the GOW Ultimate Edition game, you'll get all three games free with it. A pretty cool deal if you ask me. =)

Huh, I never knew Baird was missing his eyebrows. Kind of ironic since my first ever Gears fanfic had ripoff versions of each member of Delta, and the goggle-wearing guy had no eyebrows. Because flamethrower.

I really love this art. Especially Cole. You captured his Cole-ness so perfectly. Really the only thing you failed to capture was Dom's sick fade (as the kids put it these days).
Reply
:iconmyfantasiworld:
MyFantasiWorld Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2015   General Artist
Lol, sure is. Do you think they explained why he didn't have eyebrows? Because of a fire? I would think so, since his face is also mangled with a bunch of burn marks. (You would have to look at Gears of War 1's Baird model to know what I'm talking about.)

Anyway, glad you do. And as for the Dom's fade, it could've been better I agree (maybe if I colored him fully), but as my description states I made it my style. I only try to get close the actual as much as I can but add a twist with what I wanted. ;)

Besides he looks so freaking adorable! He's probably my top favorites of the Gears so I had to pretty him up. :D
