Recently I watched Independence Day – Resurgence, and since the movie was not that captivating, I started doing random doodles while letting it run its course. Those doodles usually are not very thought out or anything I’d consider keeping. For whatever reason, though this time I decided to take one of those drawings and turn it into something more elaborate within the length of the movie.
Taking >>inspiration<< from the movie I decided to adjust the theme of it and turn it into a fighter pilot shooting laser cannons from his space scooter. Channeling all the immense tension I felt from the movie into this drawing was hard, but I think I just barely managed it.
Then all that was left was polish the drawing into something more presentable. Given the time limit and fitting the tonality of the movie I opted for a cartoony style. I drew all the base shapes first and then added the shading on top, utilizing one of Kyle T. Webster’s Chalk brush-presets.
