Front Mission: Against the Sun



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:

This one is fully painted with the exception of the Wanzers. They started out as 3D models which I then painted over. IIRC the idea here was an assault on a space station, where the aggressors skate down the enormous solar panels surrounding it, in an attempt to deter the defenders from taking a shot and damaging the fragile solar panels themselves. I thought it might have been an interesting game scenario. The cable/tethers were an afterthought to add some movement, though I had the desire to suggest an intense 'Evangelion umbelical severing' type scenario with a timer... :shrug:

-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. ;)
