MDG Archer by CGVickers MDG Archer by CGVickers
Well I wanted to create a unit logo for the shoulder or chest but I think I need a little more time for that. Other than a unit logo, the design is pretty much done. I now hope to make a wallpaper out of this design similar to my featured deviation [link] , I'll be posting a new version of that as well (one with a decal where one was missing and the sensor eyes glowing)

Very, very nice, I rather like the colors you chose for it and the inclusion of the number details. :p

You're welcome ^.^ Doesn't look cluttered to me, frankly, the numbers make it look more realistic.

Nice. The detail put into every single part of this picture is amazing. It would be awsome to see it in some different colored camos.

True but I'm not sure I have the time or stamina to play with to many camo schemes considering the size of the pic

Well thank you very much but it's not rendered. Just many layers in Photoshop : )

For sure. I thought the word "render" can also be applied when talking about pencil renderings etc.
Btw, looking at your pic for another time thought that some additional textures can improve the volume feel. Not that it's much needed on the other hand, the picture is perfect as it is.

Keep up the good work mate!

They're a type of decoy system. Te idea being that a perfect cloak wasn't possible and hologram emmiters were never completely convincing so for defence against air strikes and the like, the Archer would mimic itself several times and partially cloak itself so that enemy units would see multiple targets and not be able to determine which was the legitimate attacker. Hope that helps answer your question : )

A thing of beauty man and damn slick indeed :) Me likes. Kinda kick ass Labor vibe with your own thing going on ;) I finally got some new mecha stuff posted as well, been tied up with a lot of other work but some new stuff did go up.

Well thank you very much : ) I have a small backlog of new designs I want to complete myself so I know what you mean about finally getting some new mech stuff posted. It's difficult with work and other projects as well though isn't it? I took a bit of your advice in adding some decals and a small amount of weathering though I think it'll take a few more designs before I go all out : )

You're quite welcome man :) I hear you it can be difficult to juggle work but I find I can do so when I really put the fire under me. I have a LOT of work planned and now that I have my monitor replaced and calibrated I'm ready to get busting again.

On the color work you did, damn fab job my so far as I see :) Sure it'll take some experimenting before you get a groove that's, all your own with certain techniques, such as the weathering, but I have zero doubts you'll arrive there (I find that looking at as much real world reference and the high end modelers work really helps). The work you do is bloody fantastic as it stands and you’ll just keep getting better. The real pleasure of being an artist is the discovery process we undergo when we’re determined to explore the possibilities. I know I can’t see doing anything else ;)

I love the way you color these things in. You make them look 3D. When I saw they little preview (before you click on it to see the enlarged image), I thought you did 3D render. Awesome stuff.

:iconcgvickers:
CGVickers Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2006
I love that 3D look but have no rendering programs or knowledge so I just spend a few hours and several layers building up the levels of shading. Glady you like it : )

cool looking bot, I think that the background comming down further than the heels of the bot is ok and i like the one "ear" or antina is neat.
However both of the armguns being the same detracts from the form and stance. prehaps a more skelital arm or something to compliment that side would have been a better choice but thats just personal preferance ;)

Good point but I try and keep the pose fairly uniform like these are all pictures taken as the mech has come out of the box as it were. One of these days, I'll try something more dynamic : )

You are GREAT at these things. And I'm not a fan of them, but yours are just amazing. I can't help but admire them and their...awesomeness. DX I could never do that if my life depended on it.

Great job, and keep up the good work! I look forward to seeing more of these.

Well thnk you very much ^_^ I have about 4 or 5 right now that I'm ready to ink then colour and another thats already inked. It's the first time that I've had a backlog of mechs to work on. So busy : P thank you again : )

Wow, you are seriously good at coloring and drawing these. Maybe you should make a tutorial on how to color or something. Of course, coloring something as well as this would take more than a tutorial.

Anyway, nice job!

Thank you very much. I keep meaning to create a tutorial but I havn't had much luck since I'm trying to make a simple/quick one that I can expand on later but so far they seem too long, specific or preechy. I'm trying though : )

The super clean professoinalism of your mecha stuff never ceases to amaze me. Sure, you apply the same kind of precision and grace to all your other art, but it just stands out with your giant robots because of the detail involved.

I think I have such a fondness for the mecha still and a willingness to put in the time to make it look just the way I want it or at least the best I can make it. I get frustrated and impatient with my other works at times and perhaps put a rush on them as a result. Either way, I'm happy with how this turned out & thank you for the compliment : )

The background is nothing more than a way of showing the body in the lineart. I kept it because this is a partial stage of completion. When done, it'll look closer to this... [link]
