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

---------------------------------

Notes:

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.
