Man, it's been too long sense I've updated.

Not sure what it is but I'm having a hard time keeping motivated. It's not the first time I've fell into a funk but it's one of the longest.

I'm going to try some story crafting to get motivated but as I may have mentioned on my last post, I suck at writing. Never the less, I need to get the wheels moving.

More later.

Kevin Carthage Character sketch 3050 by Steel-Raven
Kevin Carthage Character sketch 3050
Attempt to portray a character from a old Battletech mercenary campaign during the 3rd-4th Succession War era as he would be 25 Years later.
The Steel Raven mercenary command, including Kevin Carthage, would be preparing to take part in exercises with the 12th Star Guard and local Militia on Steelton when the Clan Jade Falcon invaded. Carthage perished along side the other defenders holding the capitals last defensive position as surviving elements of the 12th, Ravens and Militia to evacuate.

Kevin Carthage Character sketch 3039 by Steel-Raven
Kevin Carthage Character sketch 3039
A practice sketch of a battletech character from earlier campaign, now in 3039.
My first attempt to age the character almost 15 years since his last major campaign. Story wise, Kevin would have started a family know that the Steel Raven mercenary group had become a success enterprise after the events of 4th Succession War and a generous contract with the Federated Commonwealth. In spit of the units success, Kevin often doubting himself as a father with every deployment called for him to leave his to fight other peoples war. His son, Eric, idolized him all the same.

Kevin Carthage Character sketch 3025
Character practice, sketching a character from Battletech during the earlier campaign of late Succession Wars.
Kevin Carthage is a mercenary formally of the Lyran Guards. Well known for his skills piloting a Warhammer and TK Enforcer Auto Pistol, Kevin talks little about the events that lead to the scar over his right eye.

Battletech: March or Die by Steel-Raven
Battletech: March or Die
Lemmy Kilmister stalks the battlefields in his Atlas named Snaggletooth while "Hellraiser" plays of the external speakers. 

Second sketch of the custom Motorhead inspired Atlas. Used a screen capture of Mechwarrior Online's Legendary Atlas as a reference, it gave me the angles I wanted to use while helping keep the proportions closer to the classic Battletech design.
