Combat mecha by Mecha-Zone Combat mecha by Mecha-Zone
Here's another mecha I designed for the Quarto book "50 Robots to draw and Paint".

This one is REALLY generic but I still had a lot of fun drawing it. I think the coloring style is working pretty well too with the rusty accents.

Again, this is an old drawing so no critiques please... I know there is plenty wrong with it.

Oh man, YOU did that book?!! You inspired me to try drawing my own, you were such a huge influence! Unfortunately I could never get it right, even after so much practice.
Still, you are amazing, and I am honored to have finally met you. Sort of. XD

yes, nice to meet you too ;)

I hope you didn't give up practicing. I don't think I was any good at drawing until I was in my 30's :(

so you're the mastermind behind this one! i've been admiring this one as "my favourite one from the book".
and i've been wanting to say this for around 5 years to you "if i ever want to be turned into a robot it will be this one! great job anc keep up the good work!"

Thank you very much. It's always a joy to hear that someone liked my work form that book. I remember having a lot of fun with that project. It was great because they let me do whatever I wanted with practically no art direction.

Sure, practice a lot and start simple. Learn to draw basic things really well and then build up from there. Mechas are very hard and complex. Can you draw a car? Imagine that a mech is like a car with arms and legs. If you can't draw a basic car, then how can you expect to draw a whole mech? Tr drawing cars, trucks and other vehicles as practice.

wow, this is realy old but it's still one of my favourite designs in the book.
And what's wrong with it, looks perfectly fine to me...
