    Legato's Sketchbook of mechs, concepts and frivolity

    I guess saying I am a long time observer first time poster would be lying, but it certainly has been awhile since my last visit here to CA. looks like its the same beast I left it as!

    I’ve never really been too excited when it comes to starting a sketchbook thread. The thought of hosting all this stuff and than never moving it isn't too appealing, however, I can't just sit on DA and just HOPE I get good suggestions and critique now can I?

    While virtually everything I’ve done over the past 2-3 years is on my deviantart page (half in scraps, half on main) ill just pick a few out that I still have on file and put them here. My main goal in this is to refine my actual concept work, my ideas and my execution, but of course any other tips, ideas or thoughts would be VERY appreciated!

    These are in no order as of now, if I keep updating this, than of course... they will be

    *note, unless noted, absolutely no reference was used at all period*

    [Archangel]
    Done with mechanical pencil. Anatomy is rather ape-like I know, don’t worry… it’s a common theme ;_;

    [Generic Robot]
    Done first in pencil, colored over with a brush micron and than markered with prisma markers. Highlights were done via white colored pencil.

    another in the 'bot' series.

    Legato's Sketchbook of mechs, concepts and frivolity

    designed to look like a mix between a samurai and an animal, it mainly moves on its four legs like a mix between a dog and a gorilla using its blades on its back and arms as its primary weapons.

    sketchbook pro.. and yes, he has a gimp left foot ;_;

    Great, work! Clean lines and wonderful mech designs. Your stuff is top notch and those pencil renders are well done as well. I can't imagine how we'll you might be if you worked on some life studies and such! If you started really crackin' out some work form life you're other stuff would heavily see the benifits. You're on a borderline, man. Just cross on over! Great start to your thread!

    looks like you've got some good stuff going for you.

    I like your bots, but my favorite piece is the predator vs. aliens piece. It just looks cool!
