You traced a screenshot in photoshop then recolor it... I checked it out on my photoshop and your dimensions fit perfect onto my screen shot of the same outfit and gun.

I'm not going to deny that I used a screenshot for the outline.  That being said, I think you over-simplified the amount of work that I actually put in to finish this piece.  The one that is up now is a second draft of the original that I was not happy with.  Just doing the outline took several hours of work, and that's not including individually coloring the components and redoing the shading.  Granted, I'm not a master by any means at such things, but I feel I need to make it clear that it was not just a trace and paint bucket tool quick job.  You may check out my other piece which you will have no such issue with, where I spent a bit more time on texturing and coloring.  Yes, I did use Photoshop's tools to get some of the effects, but as far as I know, that's not against the rules.  Feel free to critique.

my degree in animation and I know the time consuming process. I have no issue with your work but I wanted to clarify that it was a screenshot that you used and I'm proud that you said what you did. It's a lot of work. I chose not to use the computer myself as I feel I have an unfair advantage in that area as of my modeling skills from school. I love your skin you did. You are very talented in digital art I grant you that all day. Also it's not up to me but hell yes I would not hold it against you but I don't think it's proper, in my worthless opinion lol, to not say that you used a screenshot in the description. That is also why I went with pencil pen ink prismacolor pencils. Art is truly all in the beholder of the person not for me to judge. I love what you did and respect it as I know the process is tedious. It looks great. Not an easy task at all. Cheers. I'm happy to show my work along side yours as it is a great piece. I hope you liked my day late dollar short that I posted and yes its unfinished. Lol kinda my thing as of late. I did not mean in anyway shape or form to offend you. I love the skin you colored and fully appreciate the tedious work and the effort you took to do such s great job. If I was Trion I would hire you in a heart beat to create skins. Cheers. Again I apologize if I seemed rude. I love the work you put in and fully know the time it took. You are a great digital artist.

Not at all.  I take every bit of criticism as a way to improve.  I did some drawing and modelling when I went to school for video game design, but I was in the programming side, so I didn't really focus on drawing.  I don't have the talent to draw with paper and pencil, or maybe just not the confidence to do it yet.  That being said, I might try it one day.  I do absolutely like your drawings, even if I haven't commented on them yet.  You've got skills, and I hope you're one of the winners of the contest, you deserve it.

Beautiful piece of artwork. I love the attention to detail, colouring and the shading to match the in-game outfit and helmet. Even better, I like how you put both the ink and black and white versions to show that you've put work and effort into this creating this piece. Good job!

Thanks for the praise.  And while I did put time into it, I feel I can do better, so I will likely be posting a revised version of it in a day or two after I finish it.

I decided to do this image in the Stratotech outfit that I got from the promo key I found on this site.  The helm is the CDC Eradicator since I think it goes well with the suit.  Unfortunately, I couldn't decide if I liked the ink version or the black and white version better, so I put both up.
