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):

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.

Comeback to the drawpile and Ill finish this. Feels off though, I think I just didnt like my line work? idk.

Trust the plan
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.

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?

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.

>>7140408
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.

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.

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)
