These are awesome tank concepts. Maybe I should do a couple more things like this!

I love your tanks! I can see British, french, Russian influence, I think. I must study your art and learn.

Yeah, I try to take design cues from as many real world historical references as I can. But then, also to try and come up with new ones... that's much harder though, if I want to keep things plausible (which is one of my goals).

It's good to study artists you adore... but never forget to go to the source, as well! :) Whether that be the pioneer artists at the beginning, or the real world imagery the work is based on; whatever it all leads back to. I think too, at least for me personally, I take a good deal of time to understand the inner workings of the kinds of things I draw. I'll freely admit my anatomy isn't top notch, and I couldn't remember half the anatomical terms I learned in life drawing classes to save my life. But knowing what's going on inside—that makes the outside work—adds infinitely to the plausibility of your work. And I'm a huge sucker for believable, plausible designs.

Of course not all art is like that, but it's what I know and do at least :]

Nice! I can almost see the resemblance to real life vehicles in a lot of those sketches! In my eyes, I can see KVs, an M3 combined with a Sdkfz 251, an AMX-13 (walker edition), and a T-72 combined with a Sheridan.

The walkers on the bottom remind me of Tau vehicles (from 40k) for some reason.

Thanks :D

You caught the references pretty acutely. Some I didn't even consciously decide on, as well.

I spy an AMX75.
Anyways, great job.
