I think mecha is a general term for anything scifi and mechanical. I usually use the term mech or mecha for bigger piloted mechs.
PS is a good program, but you need the artistic skills too :)

Good work! That's cool man, I can see your rendering improving. I'd like to mention one moment. imho you should try to eliminzte outline, because it makes overall good rendered mecha less realistic. And I think that more evident self shadowing and kind of "global illumination" will make it look even more realistic. And if you add some details it'll look just stunning. Keep up the great work! I'll wait for your updates man =)

Very awesome. I might if you want to do any changes length his left (actual left, not viewer left) arm, and one of his antennae curved but not the other. If symmetry is wanted.

And really it looks fantastic, so you only need to make changes if you think that would improve it.

Really cool design. I truly admire the smooth transition between the cylindrical arms and torso with the more abstractly shaped head and legs.

Critique: There is a a nice reflection effect you've added to the piece but I do not feel it reflects the fire you've placed in the background. Maybe some more reds, oranges, and yellows mixed in with the white reflections.

Ya, that's my fault for throwing the fire in last, so there is only rim lighting to match it.
Glad you like the rest :)
