Wow, that is some totally awesome fan art! I really enjoy all the layers of detail you put into these scenes.

I'm curious though, what is that mech between the Blackjack and the Awesome? Is it your take on a redesigned Assassin?

YOU SHOULD HAVE WAY MORE CREDIT THAN THIS!

I'll do that by making a long elaborate comment, this picture deserves MORE than a thousand words, and the first two comments together are only 12 words.

First I would like to say that you are a good fan of Mechwarrior.  I really love mech fighting games since Mechwarrior 2 was my first mech fighting game I've ever played and that the last mechwarrior was 4 Black knight.  The environment is really perfect for the setting in an outlandish sand consumed city that turned into a base of operations and battlefield, you did great making that happen in a single drawing. It is also well detailed with the sand, dirt, shadows, fog and haze, and the texturing of the land.  The buildings are well drawn and I can see the barely-noticeable ruined structures in the background, that's also a score for that.  The texture and design for the buildings is also an incredible addition to enhance the value of this piece of professional artwork.

The sky also fits well with the amazing artwork and setting, the smokey layout of the clouds are great reflecting the battles of grueling warfare.  The fighter jets also becoming part of the battle and that one of them is being targeted by a building firing its lasers, just spectacular!

Now for the mechs, each one a different model, I like how you resorted to using different types of mechs to improve the skill to avoid repetitiveness which also gives you more points for this piece.  They're all well detailed and textured with the shadows and realism with the armor designs and the rust, burns, explosions and scratches they all got from their damages and cosmic wear of the battlefield.  I also noticed that their fighting in national teams, the green ones versus the white ones.  I can see that the green mechs are, I'm guessing Luxembourg or The Netherlands, maybe.  I also like the emblems you added to them.

I still think that these words I've said are nothing compare to this, amazing, incredible, artistically realistic piece of professional artwork that you've done.

If I critiqued this I would give most or all of the aspects 5 out of 5.

Thx for the comment...very much appreciated! :)

The colors and emblems are directly related to the Mechwarrior/Battletech backstory (or canon/fluff as some prefer to say), the green mechs are units from the "Federated Suns", the black/grey mechs are "Draconis Combine" machines...not directly related to existing countrys :)
