Not really creeped out. It just amuses me all the projecting objects that get placed between the legs of mechs. I think I remember seeing a big heavy one with a vulcan there, and what appeared to be high heels.
Also, I look at the engineering and it makes sense to stick a dextrous manipulator closer to the ground, and doing it with a telepresence-waldo-thing is remarkably practical.
the way i imagined this guy working is more of a mover. so the prospectors would be cutting the ships a part and these guys would store and move it to "base". no real digging or smashing. although they could be retro fitted to do so with different equipment depending on mission etc cheers mate
i havent gotten into drawing robots/mechs/gundams/etc yet, but have a genuine interest in them, you said you simplified your style a bit. im curious, since i dont have the eye for it, where exactly did you simplify? because this looks pretty damn detailed to me. really cool man. I like how you have the guy next to it, giving it an index, and some background story.
