M.A.U. Mecha Castle: First Dog Watch



M.A.U. Castle: Mecha Base: Dog Watch

This revisits Grey's Mecha Base: M.A.U. Castle for the first part of the Night Watch, or Dog Watch. The second part is M.A.U. Castle: Last Dog Watch.

This was one of the first mixed media/ photomanipulations I posted.

It’s a combination of the Grey’s Mecha designs, from the inspiration folder, for Pendragon-Arts's A Special Christmas Present CONTEST! [December, 2015]

Pendragon-Arts was kind enough to also allow the Mecha to stand guard at N.O.T.T. Castle, in Rocket Robin Hood Rescues Marion From the Castle



This “Dog Watch” follows the tradition of being the Night Watch; since, Sirius, the "Dog Star", was the first star seen at night.[4]

The First Dog Watch is from 1600 to 1800 (4 pm to 6 pm); and, the Last Dog Watch from 1800 to 2000 (6 pm to 8 pm).

Wherever this base is; or, whatever planet it's on, it certainly gets dark early. Maybe, it’s winter in Northern Canada.
