Character designs by: :iconsimongannon:

The Earth mining mech is equipped with a laser-cutter on the left arm, and an articulated manipulator on the right arm. After cutting chunks of space-rock, it deposits them into zero-g mining carts for transport. The carts can be attached to the rear of the mech and linked together in a train. Both the feet of the mech and the bottom of the carts have anchor piles to hold them in place when working. The "head" unit can fold flat against the back (like a cape) for easier storage and transport.

The machine is designed to operate in a zero-g environment and is a mining/worker-type robot.

Custom Taedus design inspired by :iconvulnepro:'s Theos Ke Polemos mecha anime universe.

Long, extending limbs give it incredible reach with pole arms, and the segmented joint construction makes each arm a giant spear-thrower.

April; time for the kick off to a more intense flow of TKP works... although last month had been a seeming quiet period we've actually been rather busy (gah... I still have a lot of messages piling up here O_o).

To start things off we have the line work to an updated design of the oldest TKP sendai character that exists; Gumbinnen "Gumbee/Gumms" Sems. In fact, it could be said that the original version of this guy, created all the way back in 1990, IS the source from which all of TKP's bio-mechanical characters and aesthetics sprang from as Pallas Athena did from Zeus's head.

The only other posting of this character appears here, in a form much closer to the original: [link]

However in updating Gumbinnen I took great care in maintaining the core visual aesthetics of the original design, both for nostalgic reasons and simply the old original design was a rather unique looking creation (I'll have to post it soon, likely in scraps or possibly an extended post on the Vulne Pro blog). That original design is also the source of the aero-frame nosecone aesthetics much of my Theos FOIL designs have (which was why :icongenocidalpenguin: and I hit it off so well as he was doing similar things visually). Gumbinnen is where it all started.

I'm posting this monochrome presentation of the line art with the shading layer and textures on (including the bakelite parts which look more bronze here). The full color is done but I will post that a little later ;)

Gumbinnen Sems is a combat taedus so this means he's bonded to a human user. He works as an I.P.I.O. with said human who's his partner Heath Wuthering: [link]
Becasue Gumms is a taedus this means he's about 5 feet tall from ground to tips of the tail fins so he's roughly 4 feet or so where his head and primary eye line falls.

Gumbinnen lives with Heath at the Ark Cafe in Genuaš and is a free sendai. More detailed information about him will be in the full color posting to follow. There is a lot more to come...

A return to some color work with this pair of sendai saedus (SADUS) types.

S.A.D.U.S. (self aware defense utility system) as noted in a few previous postings are not the most stable types and this pair is no exception. Clearly they've both been engaged in violence and the path of blood wake. Though, typically, smaller than humans SADUS can be extremely violent and dangerous. Unless you're armed with AP SABOT rounds in your shettier things can get dicey. Best to have a taedus use partner around to deal with these edgy things.

The Gavil fellow, on the left, is a late 4th gen period body style. The one of the right, a 5th gen Jeindel. The designs of sendai can often verge on the absurdly weird and these fall somewhere in that territory. SADUS often verge on the visually strange which has also been criticized to potentially effect their behavioral issues. Even the 5th gen SADUS are prone to erratic behavior so one wonders why? Apparently they forgot their bib when chowing down on the pasta... oh, wait, that's blood. DOH!

These two were actually sitting in the hard drive for awhile now and I finally got round to finishing them off. They were based on the original roughs in these thumbs: [link] You'll see them both in the lower left side. More work pending...

Long entry (which will get edited down soon) but hopefully interesting (Illustration by :icongenocidalpenguin: with colors and cleanups by me. More info about the collab below history entry)

Forbidden weapons of war: FOILjaeger 3aMF Gottheitzerstörer (Destroyer of divinity) Adjustable Mass Frame Attack System

The feared and terrifying FOILjaeger beasts of an older age of FOIL warfare. These incredibly dangerous FOIL hunting machines were banned from combat long ago in the Genuaa Madreaus treaty of 3156 (Jaamas calender) due to a horrible incident where one lost control and practically obliterated the entire Polemos city state of Reince before finally being subdued. It is because of this terrible event that Polemos city states are now heavily fortified with artillery batteries and often protected by anti FOIL floating rail platforms. The Vulne Consortium coalition was already lobbying to get the machine banned due to it being built in secret beyond the agreed guidelines set in the rules of engagement for Polemos. Due to it's size they were built in space and when they would first appear on the field it would be dropping directly from the sky with a distinct sound indicating their arrival. The attack on Rience was the nail in the coffin for the Gottheitzerstörer machines as they were immediately outlawed after the talks in Genuaa (neutral Indus territory) concluded.

One of the most dreaded weapons ever to prowl the battlefields of Polemos just uttering the name, the cry of a FOIL pilot, alerting their blid krieg one was on the battlefield would send waves of horror though the ranks. At nearly twice the size and height of an average FOIL this machine was one of the largest combat frames built during the endless years of experimental FOIL "warfare". Employing the Icar drive technology, in an even more experimental and mysterious way, the Gottheitzerstörer would change the vibrational frequency of the FOIL's mass itself and essentially phase it's density in and out of our familiar dimensional plane. If the machine struck a normal FOIL with it's giant arms the FOIL would surely be obliterated and if it didn't strike them they better hope it didn't grab them either. The hands of the machine had plasma pulses that would ultimately cripple a FOIL much like an E.M.P. blast. The claws also would heat up to tremendous temperatures which would add to the damage of a connected strike and glow as seen here.

With the machines massive size one might think a smaller FOIL would have the advantage of maneuverability and greater speed. This is true in basic principal but due to the Icar drive being an anti gravitical unit and also allowing other strange properties the Gottheitzerstörer has tremendous speed and maneuverability for it's size which made the machine all the more feared. The machine would phase jump so it could be on a FOIL in an instant with a deadly strike and only the most skilled of pilots and FOIL faedai could evade the attack. When the machine would strike it would phase it's frequencies to a higher vibration and accelerate it's attack out of phase until connecting throwing the Icar into full phase bringing the full weight to bear which would often smash the misfortunate FOIL into the ground along with the arm of the Gottheitzerstörer creating a most spectacular impact explosion and crater. With the FOIL completely obliterated the Gottheitzerstörer would simply kick the Icar drive back to full strength to pull out of the follow through. Using the Icar drive in this fashion proved to be unpredictable in it's effects on the SADUS control entities the FOILjaegers would employ causing the machines to have a rather volatile beast-like nature. The machine in the image isn't standing but suspended by the Icar field, the glowing rings being a visible part of the field. High technology is essentially magic to those who are unfamiliar with it's workings. In many ways the sciences and high technology fields in SOL are closed systems only open to initiates and secret guilds and orders. The general public overall has little interest in how something like this works, to them it's simply pulling a rabbit out of a hat ;)

On the illustration itself. Ever since I joined DA I've been gradually meeting more and more talented artists and creative people and it's simply been a blast. Early on I met :icongenocidalpenguin: as I was drawn to his fantastic mechanical designs and endless imagination, we became friends pretty fast and soon I asked to color one of his illustrations and we began to collaborate from there. As Karl learned more about the Theos Ke Polemos project he asked if he could contribute and, well, I couldn't refuse. In talking about ideas for this project I mentioned how something about this design, what has become the Gottheitzerstörer FOILjaeger, struck my imagination. He didn't have a specific idea for it so we came up with what would be this machine using the original illustration. So the illustration and design was created by :icongenocidalpenguin: originally and can be found here: [link]

and here: [link]

Please, by all means make sure you send :icongenocidalpenguin: some much deserved good words as well.


GP sent me a hi-res scan of the pencils and I went to task, with his approval, of cleaning up the line work and adding various new, but subtle, design flourishes of my own (which can be seen differing from the original illustration in various small ways but overall I wanted the original's spirit to remain), and a new set of nastier hands on his request. Once the line work was polished up it went to color, a Panzer gray with spotted cammo, red, and "bee" marking accents. Being the machine is actually an older weapon, assumed to be mothballed long ago, it's very rusty (the classel armor over paint) and battle worn. From the looks of it this machine has executed quite a few FOIL crews. A terrible machine that should have been forever destroyed somehow kept hidden away on Indus only to return, to the horror of Polemos forces, to spread terror once again. More of Theos Ke Polemos to unfold... stay tuned.

I haven't drawn this in over 2 years, and haven't done a decent version of it since before I started working digitally, it's just such a beast to draw :D

Shimmering Sword, SMR06 Behemoth experimental mech (named after the bright particle lances fired from it's arms).
Drop this into any battlefield with relatively level terrain and it will create an area denial zone with weapons you'd expect to find on naval ships.
-2 Howitzer type guns provide beyond line of sight strike capability, using guided munitions for accuracy.
-Arm mounted Ion Accelerators will slice anything in half that comes into direct visual (or hides behind less than a hillside)
-4 laser turrets and a central missile system provide medium range defense against ground and air aggressors.
Massive cooling systems on the mechs back fight against the heat buildup caused by running the numerous energy weapons, large reactor, and an energy shielding system. The high proportion of energy weapons also leaves it weak against opposing shielded targets. The SMR doesn't deploy without escort though.

Another commission for :iconmr-balk: ~mr-balk

This is the Arcarius, a custom 75ton heavy battlemech.
It armament:
2 Streak Short Range Missile 6
1 Long Range Missile 15
1 Rotary Auto Cannon 5
1 Medium Pulse Laser

In the future it will be proven that it is in fact giant mech battles and not global warming that melts polar ice caps :la:

Again, sketchbook.
Very handy, i have to say. Much nicer than drawing in Photoshop, I find.

Another speedpaint, 40 minutes.
Fairly typical I 'spose; had something in my head, didn't quite capture it.

EDIT- video's up! The first sketch was closer to what I had in mind, it just didn't get there . . .

Enjoy!

Mostly for coloring practice. I really need to improve at digital painting, so any advice and positive critique would be very appreciated. Also ignore the fact that the Crocodile mecha is in the middle of a city xD

Thought I'd try a little more of an 'Unconventional' mecha design. (at least for me) Ignore that little thing on the bottom right btw, that was a bit of Eureka Seven taking over my mind. lol
