The detail of the art is impressive. However the robot looks so much like a loader bot from Borderlands 2.

If it wasn't yellow would it still look it do you think?

I like it! The persons left arm looks like it's a bit further out (almost detached) then maybe it should be but it could just be an illusion created by the metal torso and leg position.

these working mechs all look good ! there is a hint of Lego Technic in there, and some work-boat stuff, the guns suggest that there could be an escort mech, a sort of desert frigate, to provide back-up and rescue...?

I really like the turret at the top. Have you been posting these designs on the dev's forums or anything? I bet they'd really enjoy them!

I love homeworld 2 and the game's minimalistic design, hope that "hardware" as great as "homeworld" or at least not disappointing and the design is great btw. Do you use vector shapes or the lasso for the sharp edges?

yea i sometimes i use the lasso tool, it gives a finished look very quickly

Hardware: Shipbreakers... how did I not know about that till just now? Rob Cunningham was the biggest influence of my drawing-stuff-related life.

Either way, I kinda like the look of this; sorta like something half repurposed, half just sorta scrounged up and welded together.

Ah! More civilian equipment... well as civilian as it gets with a miniature phalanx as a top hat. Seems a little slim to be an excavator, I'm interested to hear about the design process. Was this guy designed for quick, light digs or more prolonged digs? Or something like that. Anyway, MORE civi stuff!

I thought of them as a bee unit to the main hive. So lots of small units not going to far from the main convoy

hmmm not really a fan of this one m8 , even tho the robot is a utility robot that can do multiple things , i dont really like the user station (cockpit if you wanna call it) seems to exposed , but nether the less i still like your work

StTheo Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
It wouldent be for militery applications so being exposed wouldent be the worst thing, i saw them as a resource collector unit, cheers for the feedback

Just exactly what environment would this mecha be working in the it would need VADS?? Not questioning the placement just wonder :)

Presumably it might be a military model used for combat engineering roles, possibly close to a frontline and therefore to pesky enemy rockets trying to blow up structures. Though if it were a military model I'm not sure if it would be painted in bright Caterpillar yellow though...

I saw these as resources collectors and even tho a ciws unit would seem formidable, on the grand scheme of vehicles its quite small,like being armed with a hand gun
