This mecha set was an old artwork i was able to dig out of my archives. Done originally as a lineart but i ended up filling it in with markers. I was heavily influenced in anime back then so i might start doing more art similar to this.
TRDL 2012 Series, No. 05 – Spazierend Panzers Type C [TRDL Commission]
Part 3 of 4
This was one of three mecha designs developed for one of my long-term clients for his original supers gaming universe. Think WWII-era mecha. We put a lot into debating how to give modern mecha design an old-timey feel appropriate for the 40s based largely on German artillery, tank and other equipment designs. It was a fun project, and I actually went to the library for the first time since college (14 years or so!) though ultimately most of my refs came from the supernet after all. The Spazierend Panzer Type C is the heaviest mecha class in this series. The shoulders support massive missile pods and the mouth is equipped with twin 20mm cannons. The arm carries an 88mm cannon. Yipe!
