Battletech - Mad Cat by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - Mad Cat by Shimmering-Sword
Sorry for not posting anything in a while. I have a bunch of stuff to show piled up, I just never get around to posting it.

Here's an album cover piece I painted for Timothy Seals' "A New Dawn" and "Bred For War" releases. Find his soundcloud here: soundcloud.com/timothy-seals

A Clan Wolf Timber Wolf  / Mad Cat charges across the barren landscape, firing off lasers and missiles.
I gave a little nod to the MW2 box art with a (reasonably) fiery background.

I love the Mad Cat/Timber Wolf. This would be my ideal loadout were I a real Mech Pilot:

-2 ER PPCs
-2 LRMx15 packs
-1 25mm Autocannon
-1 Machine gun
-4 Small Pulse Lasers
- Target Jammer

Might be hard finding the tonnage for all that, mostly considering the AC2.

AC2? What does that mean?

Class 2 Autocannon. In BT they're around 20-30mm caliber.

from the amount of shadow cats you draw/make i'm guessing your favorite mech is the shadow cat. Great art FTW!!!

You mean Mad Cat? I used to draw them a lot, though they're not so much a favorite any more, they are however a favorite of everyone else, so they are commissioned a lot.

I have, actually.

The Mech's callsign is Alpha Assault, unless you're not referring to the intro. But it seems like you were.

All who speak (besides the 'Mech Computer) refer to the main mech as 'Alpha Assault'.

Huh, could have sworn that the version of the game I had referred to him as Alpha Patrol.  Weird.

I love how this one turned out.  I like how it preserved the original organic shapes from the TROs while still having the appearance of a solid unit given to it by MWO.

One of my favorite Battlemechs, in all its versions.  The Assault was I think the weakest design but still good.  And this one is a just fantastic example of where the line came from.

Gotta love the Timber Wolf. It never ceases to go out of style, no matter how old the design is.

P.S. I like your new I.D. picture.
