Mecha Front - Lynx by Shimmering-Sword Mecha Front - Lynx by Shimmering-Sword
This is one of the earlier designs I worked on in the initial sketching stages, but my most recent color piece as I work my way through the list of missing art. After doing the batch of lineart for battletech I tried applying my inking technique to the sketching phase of this piece. The look is a little different and not a whole lot faster, but it comes out very crisp. Compare to the NorAm Raptor, which was only my 2nd color piece for mecha front.

The NorAm Lynx medium mech is a standard trooper, with all around armor, firepower, and mobility. It's main load out is 4 auto cannons, with alternates mixing in gatling guns, guided missiles, and rail guns.

What kind of software do you use for this? I kind of want to get into stuff like this but I only know of 3DSMAX and cinema4d.. I think?
Oh and nice work by the way.

After designing the mechs I do a basic 3D model of them in Maya, 3DMax or C4D would do that just as well. Most of the work is done in Photoshop though, lots of painting.

Now this-...this is beautiful. Solid, strong, balanced, tough...Aww man, it's good. though I'm concerned about the Pilot's field of vision; can't be too good, unless he's watching for aircraft.

Well if you don't mind honesy, they're not very good. They lack perspective and have simple silhouettes, also drawing on lined paper is eh :P

However everyone has to start somewhere, if you want to be good at them just keep practicing.

You're only limited by your experience, practice more and you'll handle perspective just fine. I started just like you after all.

Well I like 2D art anyways. Call it a side-scroller fetish.

Reminds me of the Muscle Tracers (MTs) from Armored Core series, but beefier and actually effective...

Nice design! The armored cockpit is cool looking and I like the 4 barrel symmetrical look, really cool here in this case. Well done sir!

Isn't a mech named Lynx supposed to be a little less bulky and more.. lighter, faster?

Everything is relative, this one is a lot smaller than the massive quad mechs in the game.

Excellent work it does have a good feel of weaponsystems and mobility to it. It is great to see you working up on your older sketches giving them a new story to tell

I don't know how Jon manages to balance the weapons. I just throw some guns on that feel right for the weight class and I've yet to see him modify that for game purposes. I look back and some variants definitely carry more firepower than others :D
