Is Hawken the only time you've ever seen a mech?

Nope. Just reminds of a good game. :3

Might I suggest you use wording in the future that doesn't imply an artists work is directly from something that it is not, it can be insulting to the artists creativity. Scifi artists call this the "looks like halo" problem.

This is such an impressively well done drawing. The lighting is superb and so is the refracted colours from the snow beneath. Bravo!

Reminds me of a taller version of the Heavy Gear Mammoth Strider. It looks great, though.

Can you tell me, if you used a 3d model, a reference of some sort, to create this one?
Or is completely, from scratch to finish, created from imagination.
I struggle with my art, and i am caught in a vicious circle.
Thanks.

For a lot of my quality work I do start with a 3D base for my vehicles, this one was all freehand though. I did have a photo reference to look at for color/atmosphere reference.

I absolutely love this work. The composition is spot on, but what I LOVE... LOVE... about this piece is your application of colour. The colours carry a weight of truth, correctness. It looks, believable. The colour choices are so good, you may have inspired me, to start airbrushing my latest models with the same colour theme. This is good. Really good.

Bravo!

Mostly round brushes, with a little bit of speckle and cloud brush.
