Making a Map of Mainframe (Part 9)

I’m inking this week! That means solidifying the forms. It also means having to remember less of what I’ve drawn in pencil so far. With all the overlapping lines of detail, it’s hard to keep track!

Of course I started with my favourite sector, Floating Point Park. But I also did Lost Angles and the Saucy Mare. Looking good, Mainframe!

Making a Map of Mainframe (Part 8)

I think I’m pretty satisfied with the drafts for Floating Point, Kits and Wall Street.  Now I’m slowly adding details to Giedi Prime, Beverly Hills and Baudway.  But it’s getting to the point where there is so much information and detail that I can’t remember which lines represent what.  I’m going to have to start inking (that is, solidifying lines) soon.

I’ve also opened a bunch of blank vid-windows above the city.  They make the drawing look a lot more dynamic, I think.  Let me know if you have anything that would cool to put in them.  That’s right: I’m offering ad space in Mainframe, lol.

Totally unrelated, but I’ve had some fun drawing Bob’s cars recently as well.

Making a Map of Mainframe (Part 7)

Wall Street was very easy to lay the draft lines for.  All the buildings and skyscrapers are easy to spot in any fly by in the show.  But what really helped me with the details around the Principle Office was the header image above.  A big thanks to ReBoot Revival and Glitch Bob for that.  In fact, there are a bunch of awesome posters up at the ReBoot Revivial site.  Check them out!

As a side, it was really fun to draw the Baudway towers.  But pretty soon I’ll have to start Beverly Hills…  I have a feeling I’m going to have trouble finding good images of that sector to reference.  Did we ever spend any time in that sector in the show??

Sorry for the poor image quality this week.  Everything is still in light pencil, so yeah…  Next time I’ll try to turn up the contrast again.

Making a Map of Mainframe (Part 6)

Just a short update this week.  I’ve been thinking about adding Easter Eggs around Mainframe as well.  Stuff to hunt for.  Here are some possible items to add:
  • Bob’s Butterknife
  • AndrAIa’s trident
  • Hex’s mirror
  • Glitch
  • Matrix’s gun
  • Gibson Coil Pike
  • Nibbles

Just a few ideas.  Stay frosty!

Making a Map of Mainframe (Part 5)

Kits Sector

Kits Sector is something I thought I’d be able to finish in an evening, but it’s taken me a week to get this far. Unlike my map of Breath of the Wild, I can’t see the image from different angles unless I watch an episode. And that’s tough because recently I’ve been watching the X-Files while I draw. Lol.

Does anyone have any high res images for Kits??  There are a lot of interesting circuitboard looking patterns in this sector.  I’d really like to see them up close.

Bob's 8-Ball Apartment

I’ve lived in the real Kitsilano.  It’s nice.  No 8-Ball Apartments though.  *sad*  Really looking forward to drawing the 8-Ball!  Thanks to ReBoot Revival for pointing out exactly where it is.  You can see the start of it at the top of the image below.  Glitch Bob pointed out something interesting to me as well – in the opening scene of “the Tearing” Bob’s apartment is not visible where it should be when the camera flies by.  Since then I’ve noticed the same in different occasions for Dot’s Diner.  Makes me wonder if they only inserted the more detailed sets across the city when they had close-ups.

Kitsilano and the Saucy Mare
Drawing the Saucy Mare was really fun.
