Battletech - TRO 3145 Liao by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - TRO 3145 Liao by Shimmering-Sword
Technical Readout 3145 Liao dropped, so it time to share the goods :D
Here's my cover for the book, featuring a Raven II designed by ~LKY13 and a Tian Zong who's design was updated by ~ThunderGodXarbala, and Amazon Battlearmor designed by ~mattPLOG
Now back to work for me, lots more to come.

That Tian looks a lot like a Canis mech!

The colors of this forest are lovely. I would do anything to visit this forest. I also like the design of the soldiers and how they are having this heavy armor and extremely large weapons. It kinda makes them look like mini-mechs.

The designs and coloring of the mechs is also great, but what I really adore is this gatling-like weapon on the shoulders of the left mech.

Very nice work! Keep going like that (:

Seems like a risky place to be tromping around in with mechs. Quite a bad spot for an ambush. anyways good work!

I'd probably have narrowed the raven a bit if it was my design, I just did my best with the reference.

How much did you sit down as an elegant work of art?)

Catalyst wants me to do all the covers, but I'm not able to take them all on. I think I'll end up doing 1/2 to 2/3 of them.

I can see Mankind resorting to Bi-pedal armoured weapons platforms on low gravity worlds once we go space faring. I like your concept and it definitely emphasises their scale with the two soldiers walking between them.

This type of dense jungle and steep mountains are the only places a mech can take guns where a tank can't take them better. Mechs would suffer from low gravity implications the same way any wheeled vehicle would.
