Urban Light Mech by Shimmering-Sword Urban Light Mech by Shimmering-Sword
Done in an OC tonight, nice to relax on a simpler process after all my recent painting.

Urban fighting mech. Armor is light, but brings plenty of mobility. Firepower is also fair for it's size.

Hey buddy! I'm new here, and I came here to ask you a favor! I'm on a mission given by the creator of a StarCraft 2 Arcade mod called Iron Fire, where, to put it bluntly, you get in a mech and BLOW SHIT UP. The game's creator needs me to find someone with the following characteristics: Loves mechs, has lots of time on their hands to get a solid splashscreen art done, and is willing to do it for free. Yes, unfortunately, he is not willing to pay you if you are interested. He is far too busy attempting to raise money for the game on Kickstarter (check out the page here: www.kickstarter.com/projects/5…). He has big things planned and needs all the help he can get. Let me know if you need me to elaborate on anything or if you are interested. BTW, great job here!

Unless it's bigger than its frame would suggest, you'd think that there'd be no room for a cockpit in that mech.

Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
It would be a tight fit. The cockpit is in the center of the torso.

I saw that a few days back, nice work man.
Those were rods/spikes that it can stab into it's opponent, kind of silly :P

well chosen proportions i see.the light frame really allows a person to have a good idea about this mech.a fast,stealthy,ambush-y kind of mech.

Neat, I might do bigger feet, or give them something to dig into the ground so they don't get knocked over with all that firepower up top. Very neat though.

This is a pretty cool sketch :) Loose but good gestural feel and still nice sense of detail and form. The modular bits are quite cool and dig the asymmetrical missile and cannon combo.
