Walkin' by Mr--Jack Walkin' by Mr--Jack
So I've borrowed the Mass Effect art book off a friend for the last week or so, and there's a bunch of marker drawings and stuff, reminded me of a lot of Syd Mead's stuff and I went back through a book of his, felt like doing a bit of my own, always feels good to get the copics out, though I'm thinking it might have been good to've done a drawing class with the industrial design students while at uni, probably would've been helpful.

Not the most original thing I've ever done, but fun anyways.
(and yes, I did run out of paper to the right :P)

Crab/spider vehicles are one of my favourite things ever since I saw the final scene in apple seed: ex-machina, also it's just this kind of style looks really nice, the looseness to it adds to its awesome!

heh this brings me back too, oldschool :D


Originality doesn't automatically make things better anyway, this in undoubtably quality. Very solid design (reminds me of a dragoon though... :))

this picture is very interesting. apparently I see the influence of Starcraft in the picture because this machine reminds me much of the Dragoon protoss, this is true?

great model and good work man.

It wasn't intentional, but I guess any 4-legged mech sort of thing's gonna have some resemblance to a 'goon so it's not really a surprise.

Thanks :D

Funny thing is, if we ever DO have combat mechs, theoretically these would be the most likely incarnation they'd end up being. (4 legs better than 2, hands on mecha are impractical as is, balanced center of gravity). Nice work man!

Nice design. I always favor vehicles that have a nice mix of hard edges and smooth body shapes such as you have here.

yeah, getting a good mix of the two can be a lot more effective than either on their own.

I always love to see this kinda mechtech concept art. Very kewl. It just reminds me of pre-production work on an upcoming movie and I'm getting a behind-the-scenes glimpse or something. I think it's that good.

Spider tanks are the most feasible of any sort of walking tank.

jup, it indeed is a shame. i can somewhat relate to him wanting to create special items, but a little something for the mass market would be a really great move. :(
