Quad Mech Quick Sketch by Shimmering-Sword Quad Mech Quick Sketch by Shimmering-Sword
A quick sketch requested by viewers at the end of last nights stream. Demoing my concept sketching at high speed, though I have drawn mechs similar to this many years back.

A large quad mech made to field MCCs, Magnetic Compression Cannons. A somewhat crude but powerful combination of conventional propellant accelerated projectiles, aided by an additional magnetic rail.
The penetrating power afforded by such high velocity rounds make them effective in open areas, creating dead zones for ground control.
Though slow, these quad mechs are very nimble, able to maneuver their guns even at close range and reach vantage points other fire support systems cannot access.

Shimmering Sword, I think your artwork is amazing. I have been looking at all of your mech and power armor sketches and they don't even compare to the other ones I have seen. If I make a movie I would totally use these concepts :P

I like this design, too often we see quadruped mecha either based on cat/hound leg structure or flat and spider like, this one takes the cake in that it offers that high rise effect so many lack. I'd like to see you embellish this design more.

Funny, I drew up an idea for something sort of similar, but a much smaller tank killer. Those eyes make me want to see some sort of chibi version.. I don't know why.
