General dedicated to posting and discussing art of either:
1. Manmade objects, vehicles, tool, weapons etc. (of any kind and any historical era, as long as they fall in the ballpark of "technology") and fictional derivatives of such
2. Objects,vehicles, creatures etc. that aesthetically fall into the visual space of mecha/robot/artificial/cybernetics etc. regardless of level of realism.
Helpful to mention the level of realism, if any, you are taking into account in the art.
Old general resoruces (hopefully these ones aren't empty):

>Scott Robertson's How to Draw

>Scott Robertson's How to Render: the fundamentals of light, shadow and reflectivity

>Cache of /m/ artbooks (Patlabor, Gunbuster, Muv-Luv, etc.)

i can tell you're going for that imaishi gurren lagann illustration feel but your drawing is kind of hard to read and it's not really clear what's going on. as crazy and busy as imaishi's illustrations can look there's a level of clarity to them that ties them together. pic related is low-resolution but you can still parse the image quite easily due to good composition and shape design and color usage and etc.

thanks for the heads up anon, at least it reads as imaishi. I'll, sit down and look at his stuff better for a bit, cause there's, a lot, lot of shapes to soak in, when i made that i just looked at the general style and color and that was it

Not going for the super realistic look, but I don't know what could I add to make it look more like a spaceship
maybe scrap the fish face?

Comeback to the drawpile and Ill finish this. Feels off though, I think I just didnt like my line work? idk.
Do sometimes drawings feel like they just feel off no matter how many times you try to fix it?

But sometimes I do like how they turn out. Like sometimes it does look decent? Not exactly mecha but its machinery.

These look nice anon. The 2nd one has a nice finish. I guess yeah, sometimes you can't think of the right things to finish the image.

Also damn doing animations now?
Also a interesting idea i though of doing with this piece was doing a cut away, Ever done one of those?

But yeah, my main gripe is that it takes forever to go though "pixel by pixel", maybe I should sketch more. Also noticed that the SV-001 cant turn the turrent! How can it be a tank like this... oh no no no.
old thread got archived and I can't remember which robos I posted already

Kinda, just tried it out.
Neat finish, did do some cutaway in some cars, they're really fun to do, would recomand. Man i remember liking metal slug, should draw that thing too. Didn't its turret turn around on the vertical, since the game is 2d n all?
don't think anyone minds
how did you get so good at perspective?

Ill probably do it later.
Im actually surprised I didnt do this one with the annoying box method. I still used a ref but maybe I am observing better? Cause once you get the main body and tires in position, the rest is just details.

But overall I am pleased with this one.
it's a pretty neat study, good to hear you got it down without needing to construct from scratch.
Cause yeah, once you get the main body, or even just 1 or 2 planes drawn, the rest is drawing details and geometry, the perspective is settled allready.

Playing around with high and low detail areas since I usually have an equal distribution of detail, here I tried to only focus on one leg out of two, as an experiment.

Neat, welcome back. I like the head.
How autistic do you guys get about joints and plausible mechanics when drawing mecha? I've been dabbling a bit with robots but I find I get really nerdy about articulation and ranges of motion and making sure all the joints make mechanical and structural sense. It's fun but I also wonder if I'm overthinking it too much.
File: 4444.png (606 KB, 507x696)

I like to do that. It's some of the funnest parts imo, thinking of the how the parts move, not only RoM on the joint but also how the plates or such over it slide/twist to accomodate the rotation. (pic unrelated)

have some inspo from the master Kawamori himself as a bump
Are there any resources on designing mechanical forms? I don't even know what to look for
there's probably textbooks and other educational material for industrial design and vehicle design, likely good place to start
polite bump
have another one
Love Halo designs that embrace camo and other realistic kit on spartan armor. Looks great anon.
