Though I'm still out of practice with drawing, this did come out good.

As you can see, my lines are still wobbly...

... well thanks for telling me your lines are wobbly. I couldn't see it before.
Don't worry about wobbly lines. Save perfectly straight lines for engineers and architects.
It's really a good design. I love it. Is this a canon 'mech, or something you designed yourself?

My left hand shakes constantly, making me absolutely HORRID at writing. Strangely, though, the shake is less pronounced when I'm drawing.

You seem to have just either not used a ruler on some parts, or have less of a wobble than me, because you have to be LOOKING for problems to find the unevenness.

Interestingly, I must ask one thing: Did you incorporate the arm design of the Supernova into this monster? That's what it reminds me of, MechWarrior3 Supernova.

Nicely done, looks like it's from TRO 3067. If only...

Awesome, any chance you can do one of these comissioned for a made up Mech? My Infighter desperately needs a Tech readout page for my website, especially one that blends in so well with the real thing as yours does!...Mike

A Daishi? Are you nuts? More like the SuperNova from MW 3. The machine screams, "I bring you death", though. Love to tango with that in my Battlemaster.

Lol. You need to click "reply" under the persons post, because this just went right to me through my Deviation.

Very nice work you have here. So you ink them in with a felt tip marker? That's preety ballsy of you to do, not much room for error there.

Your mech style is a nice look at the "powered/walking tank" end of life. All of your stuff is great, and shows good comprehension of technical skills, I hope to see more of your stuff.

Short story about my mechanical aptitude:

I've studied a lot of powertools.

Long story:

Wasn't just powertools. I look at tanks for what an ideal killing machine would most likely look like, and just modernize it a little bit (as most of the tanks I study are WWII technology). I like to pay attention to details (Sometimes having to juggle it actually be seeable and what looks 'real', which doesn't always get pulled off).

As for the felts:

I have 4 of them (in a $6.25 set from Faber Castell, for the line work, I use the Super-fine tip, for slighting bolded edges, I'll use the Fine tip, to set up borders for shadows, I'll use the Medium tip, and doing shadows, I use the Bold tip. I would have used the typical inking pen, but that set was $30, buying just the pen with nubs was $18, and getting the ink itself was $10.50, which comes to more than I had on hand at the time, which was 23 bucks).

I personaly use Pigma Micron pens. Most of my 'standard' lines are done with an 02 or an 05 pen, while alot of my detail is done with 005s.

I like your usage of old military chasis for your mechs, it gives them that killer look. It also makes them look preety bloody heavy. My mechs look so light because I tend to use organic ideas for a bit of construction equiptment for that 'tear you apart' look.

Oh, and how long do felt tip pens last? I tend to run out of ink after several weeks, and was wondering if felt tip pens would be a good alternative to use.
AceDarkfire Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've used mine for roughly a month now, and they're still good on ink, though the Bold on is running out (as it's used for larger areas for shadows, it runs out the quickest).

holy tree!!! ASDSXCzxcsfgª!ªªª!!!!!!!!!!

i dont give a pig about the lines, the drawing in general makes that mistake unnoticeable.
AlphonseCapone Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Whow yeah. thats the kind of mechs im liking.
Transformers, meh!
Humanoid looking mechs in general, meh!
I like em like this drawing, its more "realistic". in a way.
TerratoX1 Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2005
Looks like the reseen Behemoth/Stone Rhino... But better! The right arm and leg are somewhat uneven, however its not that much of a major error. Overall its a great work.
AceDarkfire Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Yeah, on the pencil sketch of it, it didn't look horribly uneven, felt-ing this in, it looks a little worse. It's not too bad, it still looks fairly correct.

And yes, I based it off the reseen Crapemoth. Sorry, I don't care if he is taking fan input into account... it is friggen' horrible. He didn't use a ruler because it slows him down. (I would have used a ruler on the straight lines on this sucker, but I didn't find my ruler until I got to felting in the ground plane, which I eyeballed in pencil first).

I'll probably do a new one in the future, once I get back into the habit of drawing more often.
