The unclawed arm here looks pretty threatening. If it could reach the ground (or if the poor saps were hiding in trees) that set of serrated claws could also prove pretty effective against infantry, I suppose.
DFA. He jets up and slams down with the foot and arm talons. At least that was the original idea as described to me. I was told to imagine the hand claws as being the "jaws of life" that emergency crews use to cut people out of wrecked cars.
Unknown, The B-tech writers generally do not give out such info, though technically all mechs are roughly between 8 and 14 meters tall, with assault class mechs being on the higher end, like this guy here.
Nice rendering and for some reason I quite like the simple background (especially the two towers on either side of the page... yeah, I'm weird like that I think). Not sure if the curving shapes of the feet/toes and Rambo-knife fingers really fits with the blockiness of the rest of the body.
Awesome! The detail work is very impressive in the joint areas, the right hand, the feet, and the top, it's very slick! Out of curiosity, what do you mean when you say you were heavily art directed? What areas of the picture were you directed on (if you don't mind my asking)?
