Thanks! I start with doing the design, which is the page with the different masks. Then I photobash a really rough composition, then I rough in the poses of the guys. After that, I start painting, which is mostly correcting atmosphere, lighting and details since a lot of the base is loosely done with the photos. Then I spend a while on the guys, using lots of reference and pics to get the poses better. Often poses just come from a pic, either sketching what I'm seeing or bashing it in. The painting is just to show the design off in a setting; I'm not designing the human figure. 

Not a glamorous or artsy workflow, but this is the workflow that is fastest and gets the quickest and best results for me. That keeps the people paying me happy.

This is Amazing! I want to be able to draw like this! How do you do this; pen & pencil then tablet, or just tablet, what?

AlexJJessup Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks! I do almost all my work straight with a tablet. I learned drawing digitally. This started as more of a abstract collage of photos and paint strokes and then I just refined it from there.

I love it, but did you get any inspiration from Zero Dark Thirty? The postures of several soldiers look very similar to a still shot of the movie.

AlexJJessup Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Two of the poses are actually from a screen, which I didn't realize were from a movie until my teacher pointed it out. He explained that it didn't really matter, and is done all the time in the industry since the point of the painting is to showcase design. Because the design is my own, and I could easily have someone do a similar pose, it's not an issue. If I were copying the design, or selling this as an illustration (instead of a concept), then it would be unethical. I didn't see much point in changing them because I'm designing equipment, not the human body.

I didn't mean to be a copyright police;) was just curious if it was a coincidence. Like you said, if it's not for profit, go get as much inspiration as you want.
It's rare to see someone who has done some real research on all the military hardware in his designs, keep up the good work!
