Another conceptual design/model sheet for the Theos animation project. This fella is actually not some hulking mecha someone rides in it's a bio-mechanical entity closer to a cyborg in some ways but still something quite different. Itís the same race of creature that the little mech in the IO Diner piece is from. These guys are combat machine for a future not really Germany nation called Germane. Clearly I had fun with some WWII aesthetics and cammo patterns but unlike the Sfikas these guys are cell shaded with heavy weathering which is the direction all future designs for this project will head. The hats have a locking snap which can unlock if combat is imminent as the hats are only for formal dress and rank. You can't go around fighting with a hat in your mechanical eye, no? Much of these designs will probably get tweaked even further once we're ready to pitch this show, there's plenty of time as we're in the middle of working on another show project for an ad company in Arizona.
I made up this Gundam for a contest at Gundam Store and More. I was trying to come up with a Gundam with great offensive and defensive capabilities, while keeping it distinct among Gundam designs. The Dodge Copperhead influenced the color scheme I chose.
>>> Transmission start: Something different, something familiar... aye, still a bot.
Here's a little something I did for the cats from the infamous Colony Drop blog. I was invited by them to do a piece for their second anime zine and here's what I came up with. I like that they have been actually talking about, and supporting, a lot of older classic anime most of the current fandom seems to have forgotten or ignore. Frankly, the creatively bolder visual bravura that those classic works had are what inspired older guys like me to produce this kind of work as well. While there're still certainly good shows or films, here and there, much of the more modern anime utterly lacks the fearless creativity and boldness the classic films and show from the 80s and 90s had. I found Colony Drop producing an actual printed zine, in this time of web and digital, appealing to me so the piece is very much my homage to those old 80s underground dojin (hell I did contribute to some in the 90s for Studio Revolution). I'm old... so I suppose it follows.
Mecha WIP Design for Academy Senior Bad Girl character. Its much larger than depicted here. Mech is actually in the 60 foot tall range. Which would make it a Mecha rather than just a large Power Suit, or Powered Armor.
NOTES About MECHA ACADEMY: I actually wanted to do more variation in the mech body styles. But some of my concept behind the characters and mecha is that its some type of Mecha Academy for Pilots and other Trainees. Each Individual Pilots mecha is modified to an extent by the pilots or schools, but the main battle chassis and humanoid frame designs are universal. Schools or independent programs buy several dozen generic battle chassis frames a semester for training and mechanic courses. Students can fund their own parts and mecha, or supply technical data and specifications which can be uploaded into Academy fabrication units and combat programming. Throughout the year, different schools have both design and competitive challenges to rank each other and their students on a regional level.

This is just another undecided concept of a character of mine for my manga that i have been working on, and well more or less is for her version 2 tranformation ice type model.
Though i did took some idea from "Black Rock shooter" 4 a buster gun that Rock uses but Cyber it up abit, maybe some of the "Seravee Gundam" from 00 4 the back wing piece as u can c on her back, and well Rika looks ok so far but im just not sure on the concept of her so i need more opinion first so tell me what u think?
Oh and i kinda 4 got 2 mention that i also got some help on designing her knee cap from my friend here ~4164120003 and his concept [link] back then so credit also goes to him with the idea.
