So you're going to digitally reproduce the feeling of an actual printed b/w comic book? Sounds like a great idea and even from this first try you can tell that its going to work. I can't wait to see how you handle action scenes :)

woah, coool

he looks like... he looks like one of those bosses where you're suppost to lose the fight (for storyline reasons), kicking your ass, and only 20 more hours into the game do you get to fight him again for real.

and when you beat him, he'd have a really cool righteous-badguy-general monologue.

Very cool design. Reminds me of the Dragon's Heaven robot.

yeah people keep telling me it looks like Kobayashi’s stuff, but sadly I’ve never had the chance to read any of his mangas.
haven’t you seen this design before btw?

That's a good question: I don't remember seeing this drawing of yours.

But using Kobayashi's style as inspiration is fine by my mind. I used to heavily copy his style. I'd like to think you see that in my last post, the alien robot.

Ok, yes, I do remember that image. I do see echos of his design style. Never the less, you bring it into your own, that's what counts.

I bet it’s the head design that does it ;) and my drawing style is pretty close to his. perhaps that’s another reason why I like his stuff.

*nods* true, that long head design is icon of his style.

NICE! i love that low angle shot of that mech, very spooky :) ooh and a cape! wee :D
hmm, just something id mention, the layout of the words "Words of a dying prophet" could use a bit more tweaking. :o

I didn’t bother much with the layout, as it’s just a draft.

i like the design and the angle and the fadey thingy and the moon. but you can see the lines on the fadey thingy. but it does look pretty good monochrome

yeah, it’s a PS screentone filter. doesn’t get any better than that sadly. I’ll download some proper ones for cut n’ paste, when I’m doing the finished pages.

Sweet and I dig the cloak but you already know I'm all about giving them mecha some clothing bits from time to time. Can't have your mechanized death beast going around naked now can we ;) Very cool, it looks like a manga page pretty much :)

I figured they use them when not in combat, to keep the sand out. I think it also gives them a bit more of a regal look.
and as you said, can’t have them running around naked. this is a family comic :D

It give the mech the wandering prophet in the desert, ala Muadib, and that's a good thing, very much so in my book :)

lolz i agree its crap but like you said the design won many hearts tho its points to no logicall sense of design or whatsoever lolz. Its just like vunel said, things that mimics humans, angels, and death will have a strong selling point especially in mecha designs well i think hahahahahahaha
