ohsmygosh. i love it. it. is. teh. pwnage. looks more like a destroid redesign to me, though. maybe not as practical as some of the mechwarrior stuff, but definitely more awesome looking than them

!!! You did what I've always wanted to do! Yeah, redesign those godawful mechs!
Looking through your gallery I thought "this looks like somebody who wouldn't like mechwarrior..."


By the way, didja know Mechwarrior artists aren't allowed to keep Japanese artbooks in their workspace? So it's like they're conciously meant to be ugly mangled turds of a machine.

By the way, had you ever heard of the re-rejapanification of Mechs? Years ago FASA tried bringing out Mechwarrior in Japan. They had somebody redesign them. Rather strange since they were all Macross destroids in the first place.

I think you'd like it.

itís not really a redesign. that was more of a thought that struck me as I was drawing it.

to be fair, I have to point out that their designs werenít all macross copies, just a few (along with a couple of Dougram designs etc.) since they went trough the trouble of getting approval from the japanese creators of the originals to use them, I find it strange that they would forbid such material in the workplace :?

and yeah, Iíve seen those before, and I do like íem :) redesigned by studio nue, if Iím not mistaken.
actually, my designs might show up in their own section over at gearsonline in a not too distant future :D

indeed a drastic improvment over mechwarrior.

I didnít design this with mechwarrior in mind, but couldnít help thinking about it with those weapon mounts instead of arms.

of course, itís also a bit similar to Tekki/Steel battalion, but the mechs in that game already look insanely cool :D

i personally dont see much point to mechs having arms with hands. tends to be simply somehting that is added to make them look cooler, but is lacking in practicality

well I guess it depends on the role they are intended for. in some cases hands can be practical. also I wouldnít like too control a mech with a direct brain control without hands :)

failurecrusade Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2005
true true, one of the reasons im a fan of partial brain control. but i also lean towards less human-esque designs. donno if youve looked but almost all of mine are quad legged dual gun types that are more along the lines of a walking tank than a ultra heavy soldier made of metal

Iíve always imagined my mecha being made out of some type of super strong plastic polymer . and they are all rather small, more along the lines of a high tech armour for guerilla warfare.

Iím not much for human-like mechas either, but I rather try to get away from that with odd proportions :)

I have made a few quadlegged walking tanks myself, and if Iíll manage to dig íem up Iíll upload some of them.

i had imagined yours mecha as lightwights. they look like they would be about 15'-20' in hight just from the way the lines work

the odd proportions is one of the reasons i like yours so much, they look almost like they would have trouble standing but at the same time there is no reason they couldnt and its rather impressive.

but seeing how your style takes a quad legger would be quite a sight, i deffinetly would like to see one of those

I actually traded in my copy of mechassault 2 for another game. It was good fun, but the game was so damn ugly it ruined the gameplay :)
