A little better than Jet-Alone, but not quite as mobile as an Eva. Current technology in a fancy shell :P

I like the concept of this, If we were to have mecha using artificial muscle structure, what could be better than to model it off of our own appendages. This also reminds me of the Gekkou, that you can see in the Metal Gear 4 trailers -- organic legs but with a tank like body structure.

At first, I usually keep the colors simple to whatever shades the main body is in while I'm filling out and cleaning up the detail (this is after a quick sketch).

For example, on the last pink one I did, I'll do the body in light and dark values of pink, then do the grey in various values of black.

Then, I'll add the colored lighting, reflections, highlights, etc. With this one though, I already had the sky in place so as I was shading with grey I was pulling blue into it from the start.

Although it seems like alot of "master" artists do a bunch of black and white value studies first- for example, our man Syd Mead does tons of b/w sketches =p Maybe I should try that.

Ok, thanks. I always have difficulties when I go straight to a color render.

I was meaning to ask you this, Nidaram-- do you start out with grayscale, or do you immediately jump to color when rendering?
