The Mecha Sketchbook - 30 by PlasmaFire3000 The Mecha Sketchbook - 30 by PlasmaFire3000
Installment 30: February 2011 to November 2011

One of the most difficult trials as a hobbyist is wrestling with regression--the tendency to fall back (or more accurately, undergo artistic atrophy) with insufficient devotion to honing one's skills. This was definitely the case in the past several months when I was working a temporary position while also trying to find a permanent job.

Indeed, David White was correct when he said that the best action to to avoid falling back is to simply not let it happen, by practicing earnestly when time allows.

These pencil sketches are some of my attempts to stave off that regression, mostly composed of powered armor and bipedal mecha designs for a personal story in development. Oldest works are at the top, while the newest are at the bottom. Enjoy! :)

Thanks, Proto/D-Arm, and keep going with your art, too! I'm still grateful for your work that got me going on mecha design.

Thanks! It's definitely fascinating what a "mundane" tool like a pencil is capable of.

I feel ya there with the whole "art atrophy", but it's great to see you keeping up with this after school! It would be a waste of your talent not too :) That and it's fun to see what everyone's working on :D
