Very very cool as always! But man, you guys are going to go crazy drawing that comic ;) I find myself drawing robots that are so complicated I can never quite figure out the back view. Still, the amount of detail you pack in is great. Nothing ever feels tacked on or excessive. Keep up the good work

thanks!
this one’s not for my comic. trying to draw this more than once would surely put me in a padded room with no exit :D

awesome, love how you named it after the Green Knight story, Sir GAwain and the Grenn Knight!

Gah! I turn around and it's become all....neon colorlike!?!?

Well, the mecha itself is awesome, but the background is eye-destroying. Then again that's probably what you intended anyway isn't it?

Wonder if I should request a lineart to color this guy...

Do you trust me to destroy your mecha... I mean... give it a pretty scheme?

I dunno, were you happy with the Ughl? I could try something similar or something outlandish...

That's one neat mech you got there. Heck of a sixties vibe to it, though. Shiny plastic and luminous green? Heh.

ah yes, the sixties, back when people weren’t afraid to freak out a bit. I do take alot of my inspiratin from the sixties-seventies :)

Nice, changed it to green eh? Quite crazy looking no matter how you slice it ;) I posted some FOIL thumbs last night, have some other posts planned but the damn leaks in the roof started again and began to drive me batty. Roof guy here to fix it though :D Soon, no more leaks!

Drip.

Drip.

Drip.

Drip.

:icongenocidalpenguin:
genocidalpenguin Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2006
yup. I changed the background as well.
yeah I was looking at them a sec ago. I did a quick sketch of a FOIL with a dome-ish head earlier. looks a bit like one of those.

you know, now that you’re used to the dripping, your brain’s gonna fill in the sound when it’s gone ;)

Yeah I know -_- Drip... drip... etc. It's been a constant friend... full o H2O EVIL O_O Glad to be rid of it. My ceiling is showing signs of major leaks above so the roof guy came in the nick of time, it could have been really serious, lots of bloody rain lately.

Yup, saw the whole color range changed BG included :)

Cool :) Yeah, it seems my thumbs are getting a lot of these dome-ish heads that sweep back into the rear. I figure there will be some with mobile heads and some with fixed cowl heads. They all have varied sensors all over so they can see regardless of head movement. Mobile heads have more room for character though but the fixed ones allow for a sleek and armored look :)

yeah, you wouldn’t want to get water on your precious reference library ;)

I just picked up the TTA book at the post office today. hopefully, the tablet will get here tomorow.

Totally but it seemed the water damage on the ceiling was congregating over my TV O_o Just as bad. Water damage to books utterly sucks though, no question. Thankfully little casualties were incurred, just a few old Newtype magazines I had on one of the drawing tables that got hit with a leak. I didn't notice until it was too late but thankfully they didn't really get soaked.

Good deal, Jeff figured you'd get it sometime during the week, looks like earlier than later :)

yeah, they were surprisingly quick this time. usually the swedish postal service takes longer than the actual time the package takes to get overseas :D

speaking of annoying sounds, my neighbor insists on playing super-generic pop music really loud, and he’s been doing it for a week or so. grrrr.
no biggie though, I just drown it out with angry hardcore metal :D

LOL Gah I hate that. At my old apartment I had a pile of asshats for neighbors downstairs. They'd play really lame music REALLY loud and it was just bloody annoying. Telling them to stop didn't always work so I got fed up and took my Marshal amp and layed it on the floor, speakers facing down, grabbed my Fender Strat and proceeded to make a hella ton of noise. Moral of the story, Fender Strat and Marshal amp turned to... 11 = WIN! XD

I think a half an hour of really craked up Slipknot music persuaded him to lower the volume. so quiet all of a sudden XD

I guess you haven't seen the Princess bride...

I really like your stuff, looks distinctly GP. Some stuff can be "sorta like a Gundam, but..." others can be "like a wanzer, exept..."

this, this is GP.

that second set of cylinders (the ones under the mains connecting the the legs to the torso) is gonna get in the way of moving around, unless they're pneumatic pistons mounted on ball joints.

also, the pauldron on its right shoulder blends too well with the head. a bit of coloring will fix that, or maybe stronger lines for the head's contour.

besides that, mamoru nagano would be proud.

as I said in my comment, it’s not finished, so those things will be fixed when the colouring is done.

and thanks :D

dude your mech designs are great. it would be interesting to see your mecha designs used in a game or anime. Has anyone ever approached you about something like that?????

nah, this one’s just for fun (and practise, of course) I mean, I’m really happy with how it turn out, but I don’t think I ever wanna draw it again :D

LOL I SO know what you mean on that. I've drawn a few that I was like, gah, don't know if I want to repeat that O_o in terms of having to redraw them :) This thing is pretty slick though but it sounds to me like you're at the same conlusion I am, economy of detail usually works best, both for the designs and the artists sanity XD Still it sure is fun to get crazy now and then isn't it?

that’s the reason I try not to go overboard with the stuff for my comic. to keep my sanity ;)

Yes, sanity is important as it's in short supply for guys like us as it is XD I have been recovering from my wonky schedule due to the crazy leak a thon so I'm doing some catch up work here, I plan to post something soon myself. I also have a pile of FOIL thumbnails I will post so I have been still at it, just not the crazy full painted ones. I've been busy with TTA so I haven't gotten back to them but I wil finish some of the WIP ones you saw soon. Gotsta do that one with the rocket powered spear ;)

I’m getting my new tablet sometime next week (assuming it sunday over there) so I should be well armed for the TTA stuff ;)

yeah, that one was really cool. can’t wait to see how it turns out finished :D

Sweet :D Not having a tab can be a frustrating thing to say the least, glad you're getting hooked up again. Even if you didn't have one you'd still have plenty to do but with one al the better. It'll all be rolling soon and it really does look like we'll have plenty to keep busy. I even began designing a few new TTA ships and we'll all be getting to do that. I'll send that stuff over as well.

Yeah I liked the spear guy but I have to say I've been getting weirder in my little thumbnails I do now and then. I have a god deal of those now that if I do refined ones they'll be pretty odd but very fitting the Theos aesthetic I've been nurturing and refining. I might post one of the sheets as a Deviation sometime tonight, the rest in scraps.
