    Death Machine Fetish

    Well, I thought I would start a sketchbook as extra motivation to get me to draw. I'll try and make it daily, but then again, I make no promises.

    Like all good things, this starts with a mech. Unfortunately, it starts with a very sketchy one, but I like the design, so it will get better.

    Cool pic, reminds me of a cross between an Eva and the robot in FLCL (manga).

    Well, this one is for Sammy since he asked what I thought a thumper would look like. Honestly, I can't remember the book's descriptions too well, so I just made it up according to what I thought would work best. I only designed the internal mechanism for the thumper, since I can't match Sammy's rendering or design abilities in any way, and its just to give him an idea of what might work anyways.

    I chose an air ram design, which just works over and over to pound a hollow cylindrical hammer into the ground. This would be powerful and create a strong vibration, while allowing the thumper to be slim and portable. It is also fairly simple. The elongated shape would also allow it to be buried easily into the sand, which I think was how they were used in the book (correct me if I am wrong)

    anyways;

    hmmmm..the first one you posted looked like you had been inspired by evengelion's "eva units" or rahxephon's mecha designs....they are quite similar.
    keep it up!

    Dude, that thumper design's pretty damn perfect, and clearly rendered!
    Thanx

    What I like about it is that it looks like technology that would've origionally been import to Arrakis for their utilitarian and spice processing needs. Something the closer fremen tribes would'e adopted long long ago (like a big hydrollic) and warped it (within their manufacturing caves) to their needs.
    The size is really nice, more on-par with the book. Portable and not too aquard to transport.
    very cleaver and realistically designed, it's nice that you stayed away from sci-fi gagetry too.

    I wouldn't change a thing, I would just maybe add a pin or 'spike'. Something sharp, because all they had to do was throw it in the ground and it would stick and start working.

    I like your monky-mecha thing, you should do a nice finished ink of it. Incorporate those nice articulate details and funcions in the joints/segments like you did with that 2nd piece you inked, that would look nice.

    Thanks Sammy, glad you like it!

    And I inked that mech, so now its ready to color. Fixed some perspective errors, and created some new ones, but oh well.

    Getting the hang of OC. But color still isn't my thing. Shoulda overpainted the blue BG with something more fitting, but I got lazy.

    trying some anatomy stuff. Went for the superhero proportions, but I'm not too happy with it. Realism has a distinct draw.

    Well, since its supposed to be a daily sketchbook, I thought I'de post something just to keep it regular. Its the prelim for my mech coloring job. The basics are layed down, and I just need to do all the work now. THe feet are rather uncovered, so I figure I will put in some trees down there, maybe some troops, or an explosion. Might not make it an action scene though.
