Rad Soldiers Fan Art

 Some Rad Soldiers fan art. This is Sushi Jim. Part time Gourmet chef, and amateur mercenary.

This christmas has been pretty rad for two reasons:
1. RAD Soldiers on the ipad, which is bloody good like everyone says, and it's free, which is ridiculous!
2. Rad! - the film, which is, as it says on the tin, rad! But I can't believe they don't show the disco scene in the trailer... Update: Disco!!! - movie genius. Is there anything that kid can't do?

The pic above got me thinking. I'm fairly happy with the render, but the design is pretty dull. I should've taken a step back and thought a little more before plunging headlong into it. The Japanese thing only developed half way through the work really, and offers a lot of scope for backstory and costume design. Having said that, I'm pretty happy with the bodyshape and ridiculous arms.

For designers the balance between illustration and design is always a tough one. the two skills compliment oneanother, but spend too much time on either and you can fail. A designer with a great vision and no artistic skill will never be able to describe and realise his (or her) ideas. but on the other hand, there's no point in a beautiful render of a terrible design.

Anyway, hello 2013!
