Mecha Zone: Dragonfly by Mecha-Zone Mecha Zone: Dragonfly by Mecha-Zone
This is a preview of a new mech that will be featured in my upcoming book, MechaZone1.5. This is just the rough concept sketch... the final will be clean and detailed :D I'll also illustrate the jet mode and the transformation process.

It is based on a sketch I did a few years ago...


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

Нда, японские роботы выглядят чересчур нереалистично. Плохо что кому то они нравятся.

Its not a request. *cocks gun*... its a demand.
Not just kidding, do what you want, I just dont see enough armored core drawings. :iconarmoredcoreplz:
Also, this thing looks like it folds into a jet like a macross mecha fighter jet.

I thought it was a Don Figueroa or Alex Milne piece from the thumbnail until I saw "Mechamaster". =P

Looking nice man. Glad you hit your fund-raising mark and getting the opportunity to release the book. :)

This is a cool, beefed-up version of your previous sketch! Like Blazbaros said below, you really can't go wrong with the white/<color> racing stripes.

Glad to see you posting your recent work, and looking forward to the re-release of the first Mecha Zone in updated form, Dave!

I'm watching the original Super Dimension Fortress Macross currently. I've made it up to episode four, and it's a great series.

It's good to see something sleek and pointy among all the chunky and clunky. Looks cool so far. I'll be looking forward to the more finished drafts.

Keep at it!

As I said, I love it! And there should really be a model kit and a white metal mini made of this one... ^^

Imagine the looks of the other players at a Battletech table when you'd field it as a P-Hawk substitute or something like that (the long lost III-C variant ;P)... :D

I'm definitely in the market to have some miniatures or whatever made from some of my newer work. I have good connections in the sculpting and casting field but I haven't made an effort to make it all happen. Hopefully I can do it after I finish the book. We'll see how broke I am then :(

boss design! Very Macross!
Might consider extenders for the arm blades, give them some reach if they're going to be a prominent feature.
Can't wait to see the real thing

Interesting design.
Really looks like a blend of the best design elements from Macross and NGE with a slight touch of classic Bubblegum Crisis.

yes, hard to disagree with that observation. All of those have been very influential to me. I'm working on another mech right now that has even more BGC influence.

well more or less. LAM is a Battletech term and this mech isn't tied to any specific series.
