SteamJunk Mecha

Wasn't happy with the last mecha so I did another steampunk based version... :P

Something about this guy's upper body is bugging me quite a bit, but I am too lazy to fix it now... mainly it's the perspective being off...
I feel like I am in an extreme artistic slump like I cannot appreciate anything I do or something like that... :(

Here some steps, I actually like wip4 the most because it has the best read I think.

I'd be glad to hear some crits!

Great job! i love the attention to detail and the creative use of parts to make the mecha. Also, the composition is great. There's something about this that has that Calliebotte look to it. I thought of his painting "Paris Street Rainy Day" when I looked at this.

if this is a slump..... hmm I'd say the fading of the upper body has too much of a harsh contrast to it, the hatch/circular bit seems somehow unconnected to the guns above
I like it! I love how the people really give the mecha scale!

That's fantastic - love the misty effect. Maybe it looks off to you because the brain expects arms?

This is so awesome, I don't see how you can't appreciate this, I would kill for your skill.

I like it! As has been said before the body competes with the foreground and the 'roundness' of the perspective with regards to the distinctive shape of the steam engine body both hang my eyes up. Additionally it seems like one leg attaches toward the rear (viewers right) while the other attaches squarely on the side (viewers left).

Still I love the concept and the colors!
