The colony maintenance mech features a series of arm attachments: The front arms can be equipped with a grabber claw or a welding tip. The back arms can be equipped with a glue gun or a drill/screwdriver. Both arms rotate 360 degrees around the shoulder joint.
The machine is designed to operate in a zero-g environment and is a worker-type robot.
Inspired by Super Mario RPG, Star Ocean: The Second Story, and many more of my fondest memories playing role-playing games as a kid. These are the kinds of characters I would design if I was making a mecha-themed fantasy RPG. My goals were to be funny, draw inventive designs with a lot of personality, and be a bit bolder and more unusual with color usage. Thanks goes to Paul Segal for suggesting the "Gems of Castelaria" name.
This new series of submissions has a few new characters added to the roster, as well as reworkings of previous designs. (Yes, I know there wouldn't be staples visible in ALL of these spreads, but I like the staples.)
I've had this sitting in sketch form since June 2008 and finally got around to painting it up. Tried a few new things. Still trying to get back to the level of [link] and [link] and [link] after a long hiatus.
Normal red and blue are always tough colors for me, I dunno why.
Anyways, some stuff totally doesn't make sense, but I really like the concept itself.
