    Legato VS. Cucaracha

    *drums*

    I announce the duel between Cucaracha and Legato!

    Facts for our theme:

    - A clumsy, "steampunk" walker/mechanoid
    no matter if radio controlled, with cockpit, robotic, whatev

    - Any medium, no matter if b/w or colored
    - At least one "finished" illustration of the walker/mecha
    - At least two sketches/WIPs
    - As many rough concepts as both of us could provide

    edit: About the weapons:

    For distance weapons: Should be reduced to conventional projectile weapons such as cannons, guns or bows.

    For melee weapons: Swords and hammers and such roxxors da boxxors.

    No modern missiles or nuclear weapons of course!
    But remember oldschool-chinese-firecracker-rockets

    The arena is opened!

    well... here it is in it's inked form... i know i know i said i would make a different design, but.

    a) iv had no time and no inspiration
    and...
    b) your (cucaracha's) mech is very streamlined...

    also, the rules didn't make it a steampunk and imo my mech is pretty lumbering... i got a new set of prisma markers (cool grey 10%-black) so im praying i don't screw the pooch... anyway... hope this is ok

    host is up again.

    threw some color on it... just to define them.
    lighting and details tomorrow - I'm very sorry, but I'm currently graduating - the next weeks decide whether I'll get a good job or not
