!!! 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.
it’s 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 weren’t 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, I’ve seen those before, and I do like ’em redesigned by studio nue, if I’m not mistaken.
actually, my designs might show up in their own section over at gearsonline in a not too distant future
