Pointy Things by PlasmaFire3000 Pointy Things by PlasmaFire3000
Blame my exhausted mind for the inexcusable name on this piece.

I thank God for getting this done in time for Otakon 2009, especially since it's a considerable step on the road to learning mechanical design. And thanks to people like Ridwan Chandra ([link]), they've inspired me to focus on ever-smaller details and still ensure I see the big picture. Spotted a few bad mistakes after post-processing, but eh...I should make note of them next time.

Standing about 6.5 meters tall, this close-combat bipedal mech wields a small beam cannon on its right arm and a special lance in its left hand. The lance pierces enemies at the molecular level via a surface-adhering space-time rift. And even with the field off, its superalloy tip can easily disable lightly-armored combat vehicles and infantry with a quick stab or two. The mecha has a few unique features, including dislocatable knees and height-adjustable lower legs, allowing it to reach much farther than one might assume.

Lumograph pencils and mechanical pencils on 8.5" x 11" Strathmore 300-series Bristol board. GIMP 2.6 for desaturating the slightly-yellow paper.

Another thing I forgot to mention, IF you do add in a background be sure to put in the same effort as the figure.


Keep it up!

Hahaha...good call, TGping :p. I really need to do more background studies; they obviously take more sketchbook space, and require a bit of traveling, but it'd help.

I should start hunting out some industrial areas around the area. To Google Maps!

I meant Google Maps with the car keys. I don't own a GPS receiver (yet). ;)
