A little while ago I held a giveaway for copies of my Mako Mori print, and I planned to give the first-place winner a small ink sketch in addition to the print. Weeelllll I went a bit overboard!
The winner, sweetlittlepuku, asked for a drawing of Tacit Ronin, the Japanese jaeger that only makes a brief cameo in the movie. I was daunted at first because mechs are waaaay out of my comfort zone, but I decided to take it as a challenge and do a full illustration, seeing how well I could translate a giant robot into ~my style~ without losing the spirit of the original design. Thankfully Tacit Ronin is sorta one of the more organic-looking jaegers to begin with, so it actually turned out to be really fun to translate the design into more flowing, streamlined shapes!
I hope you like it, sweetlittlepuku :D You’ll be getting a large print of this in the mail in addition to the Mako Mori print you won!
If anyone is interested in buying their own print of this, you can get one at my store, right here!#pacific rim #jaeger #tacit ronin #quillart
