DAMN, I really like this one. It's so... I guess, funky. It's really atypical of robots to look clumsy and strange, but this one does it well and with grace. I personally really enjoy this one, especially the colors, they're just so... bizarre. Great job, you've got impressive work in here.

Its awesome. The one qualm I have with the design is with the curve in the body it'd be easy for another mech to crush; it needs something to strengthen it.

It kind of reminds me of Dragon's Heaven but its very original.

Good eye because you're on the right track. This time, I made a big 14x17 pencil drawing and then scanned it in halves and cleaned and colored it. So yeah the lineart is literally different AND it started out about 2x as large as my normal little drawings on 8x10 paper.

Its nice to work with downsizing +more room on your side for a change plus I can't think of any pro who draws on printer paper lol :)

I really like working this way I have a couple other ideas to try out plus it seems to look "better" to me somehow.

I see. :) I knew something was different. and yeah it does look better. I did the same technique with some of my old characters drawings. Penciled it in on a 14x17 drawing pad and then (with some hesitation) I cut the piece in half to scan it in. Then I thought it was a bit too much work for me as how I tend to mess up proportions when drawing in such a huge paper.

Now that I've got a tablet I use my pencil mainly for practicing or doing rough sketches of ideas (mostly on line paper lol).

Anyways, keep it up.
