Space Mining Muncher by Mecha-Zone Space Mining Muncher by Mecha-Zone
Another drawing for Quarto Publishing book "50 Fantasy Vehicles to Draw and Paint". This ship is on pages 122-123.

This is one of my all time favorite pieces. It's one of those rare moments when a drawing turned out exactly as I imagined it before I started.

The idea behind it is this: Deep space cruisers would carry a few of these mining ships to send out and retrieve/ process raw materials that might be necessary for repairs, energy creation, etc...

I love this looks like either a robot or a fighter craft with tons of melee capability

That is so awesome!

I strongly feel that the entire purpose of the human race is to put a manned drill in outer space. I really do.

I found this after unknowingly creating something very similar ([link]),
but I like this one better, its just so much angrier! XD

This one is pretty cool. I may like it best of all. See if you can make it look less boxy and a bit more organic, kind of like what you did with that wolf looking mecha. You could also, maybe, maybe, give it more body. Like maybe a torso, or something that kind of resembles a torso.

Hi and thanks for asking. Since this picture was made for a book about drawing, I think it would be perfect if you made a model of it. It was meant to inspire :)

please give me credit when possible, thanks.
