Battletech: Karhu by Mecha-Zone Battletech: Karhu by Mecha-Zone
This mech was originally from MechWarrior Dark Ages, but has been integrated into the Battletech universe. This art was made for Battletech TRO 3085.

One of the few Dark Ages mechs that I actually like.

Being a little bit of a jerk, but just how influenced were you by the Z'Gok from Mobile Suit Gundam for this? Of course, it could just very well be a coincidence, but now that I thought about it I'm curious.

It probably was. That's what I thought when I saw the design for the first time. I didn't design this mech, I just made this particular illustration of it for a book.

Ah, okay. I was also curious because I actually like the design more here. It looks like a possible war mech here, and more intimidating. Which is awesome.

I think I would like this design much better without the goofy-looking hand bee-stingers.

Much like I think you would like the Sunder better if it wasn't a potato.

Good price, is this the only way to get the book or have you gotten it distributed to books stores?

Ahhhh this be a damn sexy beast of a 'mech. You wouldn't believe how jazzed I was when Brent told me you had done the artwork for this.

This reminds me very much of the Z'Gok.

So this is actually inspired by that MS? :wow:

no, I was just saying that I can see why you would say that. I didn't design this mech so I don't know what the inspiration was.

Looks like someone gave the kodiak a facelift :) I agree with the others, you make the DA stuff look so much better and much more BattleTech flavored.

the thumbnail has this hilarious kneejerk reaction of 'IS THAT A Z'GOK?'
Granted, it doesn't look a whole like one, but it was funny anyway.

Easily one of my favorite images from the TRO. There is one problem, though-- the accompanying scenery makes it look only human-sized. If I know my mech sizes right (not that there are any specific numbers for them) then a human would come to the bottom of those access panels on the backs of the legs. Right where those two screws are above the ankles. That would make the grass about 3 feet tall, with each blade being 6-8 inches wide...

It's not the strangest thing to come out of the Battletech universe... There's that planet of the intelligent Dodo-bird aliens, or those populated planets in the Inner Sphere with archetypal European-style dragons, or those "whales" with tentacles all around their mouths...

I hate it when fantasy mixes with mecha scifi.

I second that. And your hardwork helps a lot to make these Dark Age mechs look better.
