Dam this is awesome, I love how the cockpit is visibly lit up, allowing someone to imagine what it's like to actually pilot that Mecha.

This. I thought it looked like what a Mad Cat might if there were a "futuristic" version of it; say, another 500 years beyond the clan wars.

Dire Wolf for now, not decided yet on it it's model is too ugly. If I change I'll get a silly one, like a light mech.

yeah, the Boeing Dreamliner nose..... and the bookshelf on it's head...are not sitting well with me.   At least the updated photos are better angles, but dear goodness me, when will they learn the importance of "First Impressions"?  Still, at least the proportions were not as bad as feared originally.  I stopped at the Thor Pack, though the announcement of the TimberWolf S has me licking my chops.   Ah well, need to get my stuff cleared up so I can get back to practicing and doing commissions, or I won't be able to afford anything.  Been so buried in some very physical classes, have had to turn away a few suitors, and that is just bad for business.  :(



I think too many of us underestimate how much more is needed to work as an artist than just drawing, lol.

He should be armored with an Anti-EMP generator, it would be a shame if it were to be EMP'd during an epic battle...he..ehe....ehehehe

In the dictionary, in the entry for 'unleashing a sh*tstorm', this picture should appear (appropriately copyrighted of course).

 

Yes why not more arms with more weapons, though I can't figure how the pilot would operate them, unless there is more than one pilot in this class?

Vikings are, frankly, one of the most terrifying 'Mechs to face. Especially if you're bringing ASFs...that many salvos tends to induce Lawn Darn PSRs alarmingly frequently.

This is my favorite one, from what I've seen of your work. I like how this thing is a FREAKING WAR MACHINE.
Would a standard Atlas would put up a good fight against this?

:iconshimmering-sword:
Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I wouldn't really say there's a "standard" atlas. Most inner sphere mechs get regular updates, rather than a base design and some variations (like clan mechs). This Norseman would probably handle the original atlas just fine, but that wouldn't be a fair comparison when it's base tech vs more advanced equipment that the atlas later has too. It's more about who plays better that wins.

Good point. I just figured that, with this thing pumped with lasers and missiles, it'd put up a pretty good fight. :3

I really like the the cleaned up and more curved look to the traditional mechs you have done here. It interesting to guess the models off the images you've created from the original TRO sketches.

Most good designs end up with no spare crits, or very few. I don't have a readout myself.

Because my commissions usually concentrate on a single mech it's hard to go for more than moderate damage. One of my Usling pieces has a torn up battlemaster torso in it though.

This is new. Is this using the revised battletech rules? didn't think you could mount extra arms, then again im still using the old wizkids rules from the mid 2000s, looks like a SuperColossal Mech to me but nice design. Very dakka

The upper arms are just counted at the side torsos. Even the original Viking had tiny little arms underneath along with it's missile arms. Many battletech designs just don't make visual sense :)

You probably get this a lot, but are you one of MWO's concept artists? Because I can easily see your mechs functioning in-game.
