Hi all! It's been so long since I've been able to post work that I've done!

These concept artworks were done in late 2008 for the game Front Mission Evolved. Front Mission is a cult-classic mecha franchise by Square Enix that inspired my love for robots when I was a youngster. It was an insane privilege for IFS and myself to have been able to contribute to it.


[EDITED: higher res file + sharpened image]

Image info:

My second favourite image, this one also involves the most 3D(base model provided by Verawat.V) and photo textures. Aside from helping to conceptualise the operations hangar area, along with the entrance to the observation deck and rest of the base... I thought it was a good opportunity to try something more... symbolic? The original render and angle by V was too good to pass up the opportunity.


Credits/Additional info:

-This artwork is Copyright Square Enix and Double Helix Games.

-These images (and more) can be found on the Free-to-Download Digital Dossier here: [link]

-Skan Srisuwan for his wonderful Wanzer redesigns.

-Verawat Verasunthorn who translated Skan's designs into 3D models, over which a number were used as 'bases' for me to paint over in these artworks to maintain accuracy and as a time saver.

-With Skan's permission, I'd taken design liberties with some of his designs, throwing in my own ideas and flavour to the mix; hopefully providing an extra layer of 'grounded-ness' or grittiness that I felt resonated with the spirit of Front Mission. ;)

When I was a child, there was a line of plastic Robotech models for sale in regular stores like K-mart. Inside the kits was a pamphlet showing all of the models that you could never find. The greatest one of all was the "Robotech Factory" model kit, and although this painting is not exactly like that, it does remind me of that amazing model kit I could never have.

A moment with the giant steel of titan. One ready to war, another ponder his fate. Only one way to be sure - SUIT UP!
