So I was looking at this and noticed something. It looks nothing like the Mercury that supposedly inspired it, but a hell of a lot like Clan Wolverine's Mercury II.

What's up with that?

I have no idea what they wrote in the book, but I was definitely told to make it look like a Mercury II.

That seems odd. Even before that book came out, the first omnimech was always stated to be inspired by the modular weapon mounts on the mercury, and in the book the Coyotl was said to be the logical extension of Star League research. Seems odd they wouldn't ask you to make it look like the original Mercury.

The mercury II is from one of the Jihad books as a Wolverine mech. In universe, the other clans hate everything wolverine.


Whatever the case, this art is fairly good (though I prefer the other omnis from that book). Looks very much like an originating design, solid, but unrefined just like the tech that goes into it.

If i may help out: the principle of OMNI-Mechs, the modularity that makes them so flexibly, not the mech itself, was inspired by the mercury´s weapon mounts. And the first omni was created by the Coyotes!

Wow! This looks awesome. I could use your help on drawing a design I made in Heavy Metal Pro program and I am not that great of a drawer to get the details I want on the mech.

It looks like it's about to tip over, or possibly like it just did a torso twist to keep that from happening. Looks fast as well.

Kinda looks like Robotech a little but it also kinda reminds me of Mechwarrior the games.

Looks awesome!
