Dust and Smoke by qwertyDesign Dust and Smoke by qwertyDesign
A piece showing my latest mech design "Charger" doing what it does best.

This is the mech also featured in "Reload" [link]

Credits:

Hellfire Missiles, parts of GAU 8 cannon and Type 89 APC (pre-destroyed) from Sketchup Warehouse.
Used some firey photo stock. All the rest including photos and textures is my stuff.

C+C of course welcome.

Edit: Many thanks to all who have commented or Fav'd.
I've been overwhelmed by the response. If I haven't got back to you personally please be assured I really appreciate your support.

Thanks Dave!
I wanted a caption that "sells" the piece. :D
I see you're in Utah. I did design work for a company in Moab www.moabundercanvas.com/index.….
Sort of stuff I do when not designing hardware. Thanks for looking.

I tend to go for mini mecha when it comes to real-robot style design, but I still like a lot of the details int his piece and appreciate the context. Nice quality, too!

Thanks for your kind comments.
I like smaller (light?) mech designs too, but I couldn't resist seeing what I could do with a full size battle mech. Incidently I plan on doing a smaller design in the near future. When there's time, right?

Very cool setup and dynamic feeling.

Two things I would have added to give it even more of a dynamic and grim feeling:

1) Black borders top and bottom, to simlulate some kind of movie effect.
2) And an overlayed layer of dark grey (or a different color) ot make it a little more dark. Perhaps raised the contrast a little.

But those are options. It's awesome as it is.

Thanks. I've had that sig for about a year now and you are only the second person to Ever comment about it.
I don't know if that's funny or sad.

Hey, thanks!
Never played that one myself. I have played some of the Armoured Core and Mechwarrior titles years ago, though.

From Software's second best mech game. Armored Core V blends the two together as far as editing and multiplayer, you should check it out when it gets released.

I just hope it keeps the feel of Armored Cores designs, so far most of them look very blocky, nothing sleek so far.
