PERFECT MECHA by Nidaram PERFECT MECHA by Nidaram
Three years old but I dug it up again and felt like I should share it with my Deviantart buddies :D

This was drawn in response to criticisms about "physics" and "realism" and "durability" in regards to some of my early frame-torso ideas. Basically it represents what the average mecha "fan" considers to be the perfect robot based on 4chan /m/ whining as well as some fanart/official mecha design conventions I saw at the time (people looooove gatling guns and Tachikoma eyes).

Most of this isn't as witty anymore and some of it is inconsistent with my own work. Also it's kind of angry but I feel like there's still truth to it.

And yeah, there's a spelling error.

It also kind of looks like a Tieren.

It's all in jest.

Do you suppose it is ironic that this is kind of cool? I mean not exactly in a "used by a main protagonist" cool way, but in a "this is what the BBEG needs to send mooks out in when he wants to show the heroes must absolutely crap their pants" sort of way.

Very cool. Got here from TvTropes and was surprised when it dumped me here. I only just signed up a couple days ago and I've never frequented the site much. :P

The whole thing is too funny. Gotta love them chainguns.

I love this, btw. It's so perfectly tongue in cheek.

I always thought the mech designs from Zone of Enders made the most sense, even though they look like nothing that would be in our world. Mechs in reality are a horrifyingly boring thing.

It's always bugged me how people learn about tanks, then conflate the issue of ground pressure, something that is primarily a problem for tracked or wheeled vehicles, with something that walks; the two situations are quite different. To put it in perspective, the largest land animals that ever lived (sauropods) weighed up to 100 tons, yet their feet were only a few feet wide. Tracked vehicles can dig themselves into the ground like a giant dirt chainsaw if their tracks are too narrow, walking things don't have that problem...

I lost it when I saw the Animal Farm reference.
