Mortar Headd Vachuta by genocidalpenguin Mortar Headd Vachuta by genocidalpenguin
My own little Mortar Headd design.

for those of you who wonder what a Mortar Headd is, itís the name of the mecha in the manga Five Star Stories, created by Mamoru Nagano ;)

addition: thanks to Engage at the Gearsonline forums for the name suggestion :)

I dig the speid, there'd be some horrendous impact on a blade balanced like that, though I can't imagine its output at a shade more than a trillion HP. It'd probably be on par with the mass-produced Ashura Temple MH's from the looks of things. Of course, FSS being what it is, this beast may surprise.

Simply amazing. One of the best fan made Mortar Headds from the Japanese Five Star Stories manga I've ever seen. And there aren't many...mores the pity. This has all the great styling motifs of a classic Nagano mecha but is clearly an original. I'm simply blown away by the quality. Even the name is great, collaborative or not. Great work!

I've got a few 5 star stories books that I bought in Japan. Most of them have beautiful colored mortar head designs on the first few pages. This one would be right at home in there. Mamoru Nagano would be proud!

This mecha's detail goes beyond belief, the joints specially, one thing that most mecha designers/fans tend to overlook, I've never seen "Fivestar stories" but this mecha has certainly made me interested on them.

P.D. All your artwork is awesome, keep the talent up!

The little touches of detail is what attracts me most to your work. The intricities in the spinal areas, the joints, and most specifically the hands.

But you allready know how much your work rocks, from everyone telling you as such. >.>

Oh, and what happend? Did the puppeteer possess you or something along those lines?

Darn it! I've been looking at Other Mortar Headds on google images (for research purposes), and they're JUST TOO DETAILED! Argh!

How long did it take you to do that?
