Anime Boston Mech by Mecha-Zone Anime Boston Mech by Mecha-Zone
I hosted a panel at this year's Anime Boston called "Let's Design a Mecha". I had a camera over my sketchbook that broadcast what I was drawing to a big screen. The audience and I worked together to imagine fun elements for a new mech and I drew everything as we went along. I also gave out raffle tickets and gave the drawing to a lucky participant at the end of the panel. It was a fast paced event and totally fun!

The final image was pretty neat but it needed some work. Hey, I was drawing as fast as I could while talking to 50 people! I took a (blurry) photo so I could re-draw it later. This is the re-drawn image.

Here's the old, blurry design on my facebook page ... [link]

Here's a breakdown of some of the design elements the crowd threw at me...
- general style like Zone of Enders
- shark fin on head
- chest cannon
- arm blades
- humanoid hands
- shoulder and chest armor
- hip guns (they are detachable like pistols)
- levitation vents
- chainsaw blades for feet!

thanks a lot. It was fun to draw. I like to draw more organic mechs but they usually aren't very popular with others :(

You know, the chainsaw feet probably offers good traction on difficult terrain, kind of like the caterpillar tracks on Michael Bay's Megatron.

Chainsaw feet: because ground pressure is false data. ;)
