Tiger Shark Mech Colored by Mecha-Zone Tiger Shark Mech Colored by Mecha-Zone
Finally got to color this design I made about a year ago. This color scheme and background was inspired by an army/navy commercial I saw once where you see some footprints in the sand and then a wave washes them away. Thanks again to Ace for commissioning this fun piece! Everyone tells me that it looks like a Gunman (ganman) from Gurren Lagann and I can't disagree, but it is hard to put a chest-face on a mech and avoid that comparison :/

Here's the original inked version...

its grim-like chest seems to remind me of Gurenn Lagann, but it looks more handsome:)

I feel that you give the challenge to anyone who care to take it... I don't know the restriction you had, but if you can share them, I'm up for the challenge... Need some "reasons" right now to work on that kind of personnal challenge. :)

looks pretty sweet all colored up :) I could see this as a Clan Diamond shark light or medium mech in BattleTech too :D Maybe even a ProtoMech

It's not just the chest-face, it's the very sleeked out head...but I admit that was the first thing I thought of too. Then again with the shape of some designs like King Kittan it's got some strong similarity.

Also, why isn't this a Diamond Shark totem protomech design?! ERML on the shoulder, HMG on the left arm, and something like a PAC for the right.

Nicely done. Heck, I actually like the face part of him. When I 1st saw his face, it reminded me off from Gurren Lagann, bcuz the Mecha's in that Anime show have faces on there bodies. But in anycase, nicely done. I love it. :D

I agree on the Gurren Lagann resemblance of the Mech itself, but your art style makes is very different. Like most mecha-fans, i love the japanese mecha manga and anime too, but compared to GL, i prefer you works, they look more alive, believable, not so "COMIC", sorry i canīt better explain it.

Well, pretty awesome and beautifl. But as you say, he looks like a mecha of Gurren Lagann. More specific as "Byakou", the mecha of Thymilph.

Screw the Ganmans. This baby looks a hell of a lot cooler than they do.

thanks. I am always trying new textures to see what works best. I used a grainy one on the top to hopefully imply beading droplets of water.
