Art book tutorial example by Mecha-Zone Art book tutorial example by Mecha-Zone
This is a pencil drawing I made as an example for one of the tutorials in my new art book, Mecha zone 2.

The tutorial is "Concept techniques 1: Start with the stats" and covers one of my 4 favorite ways to generate ideas for mecha designs.

The original drawing will be given away as part of a pre-order contest. details to be announced soon!

you can pre-order the book here... [link]

I agree with Karyudo, I can spot several BattleMech pieces on this design I really like it....Lets see ATM9...ERPPC, maybe a couple of Medium Pulse in the torsos....This could be a mean lil bugger hehe :D

Reminds me a bit of one of the latter dark age mechs. With purdier design elements of course.

Cool thanks. This was just a quick no-brainer drawing. I think it could be a lot cooler with some tinkering.

I like those integral shields, Dave. Neat design touch. Not sure I've seen that before on a mech.

cool. The design could be really neat if I took a little time to refine it. I whipped out this drawing pretty fast for the book and I didn't worry about the little stuff.

A nice design! I like the boxed fashion of the legs, i could never get that look right.
