This is a re-design of this mech... [link]

The re-design really shows my change in style since I did the first mech. I used to use a lot of organic shapes but now I am much more angular and mechanical.

There's some cool stuff happening on the torso, but overall I think this mech needs a lot of work. I would like to re-design it again if I ever get the chance.

It's still a cool drawing. This guy is made up of a lot of fun shapes.

All I would do is to decreese the number of greeblies on its shoulders or give the grenades some cover.

Thanks for the input. There have been a lot of good comments on this drawing and I'm going to keep each one in mind when I finally re-design this mech again.

Not a fan of the head design and I will tell you why. The overall design has a certain aesthetic to it that the head design doesn't follow. The head looks like it belongs on a 0079 MSG design rather than that one. (Sieg Zeon!) To put it simply, it just doesn't fit in with the overall design.

I am not sure I like the hands tucked in the way they are either.. but I would have to see other aspects of the design before I make judgment. Then again I am the type of guy who would just assume either put a gun in em or make em guns. ;p

I understand completely about the head and I appreciate the explanation because it shows a really mature attitude towards a critique. Good job!

I like the hands though. they are there "just in case" because you never know when you (as a mech pilot) might need to flip the bird to another mech pilot :XD:

I try to be as constructivecas possible. I used to give bad critiques in the past and I hurt someones feelings because of it. So I made apointment from then on to give better critiques because good ones can really help people. And I like the idea about the hands lol.

MechWarrior changed my style forever. I had to grow a lot in order to do the Mechwarrior games and the concept art really opened my eyes to a lot of things. Before I did all the MW concept art, I didn't have a solid grasp on how the hip, shoulder, and waist joints on mechs needed to be configured to actually work in a realistic manner. I also gained better insight in to overall shape and silhouette importance.

I've also run into those problems a lot. I actually bought the Project phoenix book for just that reason, although I still tend to rely on more organic shapes to avoid thinking about how things fit together :/
