Well this is another pic that should have been finished ages ago and I think I know why I procrastinate so much with these BG's (I think they're cursed) I seem to have the worst luck when I'm working on one.
Ok, so it's sorta old stuff but this is basically how I wanted this one to look but never got arround to finishing it. I like the idea of a full shot on the right side with a close-up of the head in the BG. I'd like to add a little more subtle detail in the title bar but perhaps simplicity works best here. The mech has been seen before but labels and warnings have finally been added. I would have tried a little weathering at 's suggestion but I wanted this one to look pristine.
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD: FULL VIEW PLEASE (really, there is no point trying to view it as a thumb)
A concept picture for my Manga Mech Pilot Laika... heh, well, hopefully a manga I'll get around to sooner or later It started as a concept pic, but decided it would make a sweet wallpaper...
There are some things I really like about this pic, I like a lot of the little details in the backdrop, and I think the mech design itself looks really cool, and will work great for the comic. But the picture as a whole was very much constructed in parts (mech and city were drawn separately, and it shows). I think this picture really lacks an over all composition, it feels a little cluttered too. Whatever, the mech is sweet and it's killing stuff so I should be happy!
Comments always apreciated!

Not much to say about this one since it's the 3rd incarnation of this BG but I resubmitted it because there have been some minor changes added to match another image I'm submitting to keep a certain theme/style.
Changes include a thicker outline for the full view mech (which I'm not sure I like or not after all), the BG head has it's sensor eyes lit up with glow now, the missing decals have been added & the name description has been changed slightly.
This is one of my favorites wallpapers, each time i've posted it, lots of people seem to have liked it, sadly it was deleted because someone cliamed it as his own.
