    Exclamation Mech Update 2 - 20/AUG/03 (colour process included)

    Hey all.....just thought I'd add something from my sketch pile. Wasn't really too happy with the result of the body casing.....any suggestions?.....I might just leave it and see how it looks coloured. I was mostly focused on the head and lost a lot of energy doing the body.
    Regards

    lookin solid, i think it needs some of those anime rotar blade fins on th eback and a tail! yeah...and boobies..kidding...but something to take the flat off the back would be good for it...can't wait to see it colored(coloured for the refined artisans)
    It's super happy wonderful fun time!

    Awesome! I'd like to see you add some width/mass to the front shoulder girdle, to see him a bit more intimidating :evilbat:

    Nice details. The line weight needs working on. The rear end looks like it's right above the head and a little flat.

    hey good job, i like it, nice design although id work with line weights more, u seem to have similar line thickness all around so the piece can get confuzing in some areas where it gets really dense.

    I'd say all this needs is a good, old-fashioned, civil war style cannon resting nicely on his back...or maybe not.

    You could put some menacing looking, triceratops, dorsal things along the spine. I think it would look pretty good on a creature-esque mecha like this. Good stuff by the way.

    :)

    Thanks for the crits all..thanks for the lineweight issue on this drawing.....pretty much apparent on all the drawings that I do......the reason I don't do lineweights (other than the fact that I'm superlazy) is that I usually rely on the colouring/shading in photoshop to create depth. 3 Years of doing lineweight drawings in architecture and I'm sick of it....Hope you all understand.....maybe one day I'll learn to love it again.....or maybe not.


    Dakardaur:.....man....I wish there was an easy way to draw mechs......I look at reference material for hours on end. Master artists still do that too so it ain't all bad. here's a few things that inspire me to draw mechs....apache helicoptors....aircraft carriers....looking at really great mecha art.....the lines and forms used on some cars really help me...especially volkswagon for some reason.....even though my drawings don't end up looking like one.
    I don't think this is helping...I'm just spitting out inspirational stuff........ummmmm try studying form and aesthetics....see what works and what doesn't.........I couldn't really tell you.

    Regards
