Well, darn. My request would have been a Basilisk from StarSiege, but alas, thou hast played EarthSiege and not StarSiege.
Having passed that, howabout your rendition of the Uller? It's one of the dumbest looking 'Mechs, imo, however useful it may be.
When will full game/demo/beta be released?

No, I will not stop asking.

Working on a different one atm, (tried and failed the firestarter, not reallt feeling it).
Cloudburst, Uller is a great idea.

for Harts here is the first WIP shot. hopefully it should be quite obvious what it is.

First step is just using a large square brush, opacity set to pressure, I'm just blocking in silhouette then start blocking in light  / dark areas to bring out some form. I've also wrestled with the legs and fianlly got them looking somewhat ok. I'm really bad with human type legs... The next step will be a refinement, defining armour sections and parts, checking movement is possible etc..

Damn Snowgibbon WTF is that...


OMG Stalker!!!

Nice Whammy...
Thanks Squib, the WIP is super helpful, keep them coming please.  With the WIP and your description I have a really good idea what you're doing.


Oh by the way the 'mech on page one you wanted us to guess at is a Bushy...

Harts, I'm not sure how to go about recording this?

My woman uses Livestream for streaming/recording while she's drawing.

Great arts btw. I'd love to see you do a Stormcrow.

Do the wings deploy when you engage MASC?

Next WIP of the Whammy, I had to redo this because I didn't save it by accident... turned out better this time.

I've basically gone through and imagined the mech into a pile of geometric shapes and using different shades of gray I've flat shaded it in accordance with a uniform light source (not too accurately, but the general look is what I'm going for).

Also played with the legs a bit more, shortened the upper legs and made them larger. I've changed the main guns completely to better match the angle of the mech, the left side gun is foreshortened a bit. This mech is carrying PPCs so I changed the whole look of the gun (work in progress yet). You can see the armour plates get refined and mirrored to match. I've also rejigged the torso to include some weapon mounts and to give it a bit of interest.

The next step will be further refinement of the armour plates and lighting. I'll also add details like panel lines, electronic bits, lenses, sights, lights, secondary lasers and the missile holes etc.. From there it's pretty much done. I could spend longer and further detail it but I always lose interest by then.

That looks vaguely like a Cybrid HERC from EarthSiege.

See I knew they were secretly putting in LAMs, Defender just showed us the early alpha version of it. ^_^

BlackLanner

I'm curious what your interpretation will be

Wish I had a tablet & photoshop to draw in.... P&P, paint or mspaint is all I got

....and time, that'd be nice too...I do enjoy my paycheck though ::)

No updates just yet, work and other stuff has gotten in the way.

I almost finished adding detail to the Whammy leg, I might even colour this one, but against a white backdrop it always looks odd... Maybe I'll just texture it a bit.

Next stop the Stalker because I really want to try and de-tardify that one...
