Troll Mech by ryusuke Troll Mech by ryusuke
I was doing some quick sketches at work today, and the last one I did turned into this several hours later. I wanted to do a big hulking mech, sort of a Sci Fi Big Daddy kind of thing. I was also thinking about sci fi anime like Macross and such. Part way through I got to joking about this being a direct descendant of an artificially aware Honda ASIMO, hence the honda logo.

Done completely in Photoshop CS4 on a Cintiq.

Have some old-school wanzer tendencies in this one, if I'm not mistaken.

Mechs' nickname in Front Mission game series - one of those old classic designs.

Ah. Never played any of those. Though, they do have some nice mech designs. I should endeavor to buy a book or two of those designs if possible.

In the series only the newer units where following the more humanoid design that the AVS-98 series had. Most were more like anthropomorphic construction machines. Even the military types were merely mobile gun platforms. The design was more for psychological reason since the unit's primary function is police. After all the public would probably accept something more human looking. Too bad Division 2 are full of incompetence who often times use excessive force.

It's been a long time since I'd seen any Patlabor. I remember renting a VHS of the first couple episodes or so. It remains in a category of anime that I want to go back and watch... right alongside things like Dirty Pair and Slayers.

Thanks for the info! XD

Well I would suggest going to Hulu, but its not there. I'm not sure where you can find that series except maybe on Amazon or something.

Probably. Amazon is where I went to complete my GTO collection and Brigadoon... now I just need to get around to watching them.

Hey, I love HONDAs, so yeah I'd buy one to tool around in.

BTW, Is it a hybrid-drive? cause, while I'm stomping cars I don't want to make climate change worse.

Good God, from the thumbnail and to a lesser extent the small view, I thought this was a 3D render. xD
Superb job on design. :)

hah hah... I don't know if it actually makes any 3D sense, though... XD

The little thumbnail preview of it in OSX reminded me of a sprite for like an isometric RTS sort of game, though.

neat and interesting work, the proportions are a bit reminiscent of those tubby little aliens in Mass Effect.

Oh yeah, the... uhm... vol-somethings. It wasn't intended, but now that you mention it, I can see some Mass Effect influence in this thing. Must have been sub-conscious.
