MDG Culverin ver1 by CGVickers MDG Culverin ver1 by CGVickers
Well, I decided to colour both versions after all. It's not something I'll be doing again any time soon. This is the MDG Culverin with weapons deployed. The weapons stored version can be found here - [link]

I hope to start working on the wallpaper soon so as to keep with the rest of the MDG series. The WIP name/class of the Culverin is a Multi-Limb Battleship. Similar to a Mobile Armour from Gundam, the Culverin is much larger in size to other mecha like the Phantom [link] or Archer [link] & would sport a name similar to a ship. While more than a match for any mech already in survice, the primary role of this particular design is to hide amongst asteroid or debris fields and attack shipping lines, base ships & other larger support craft, similar to a WWII submarine. Most space bound mecha launch from and require base ships where as the Culverin is a ship onto itself despite it's appearances.

I love the cross between flexibility and strength in the look to the mech. Most mech artists really like to make their pieces look too ridiculously thick.
This, however, really looks like a legitimate weapons platform. I love it.

Excellent balance on this piece.  Unlike some Gundam and/or Macross machine designs, this mecha of yours looks powerful, and heavily armed, without looking like it is encumbered and burdened with an excessive amount of weaponry.  Very nice, job.

Kudos. :)

Don't u have a noise effect on the mech? It sure looks like a noise effect to me. Maybe i'm mistaken.

:iconcgvickers:
CGVickers Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2007
nope, no noise effect. Lots of layers of shading an a wierd cammo pattern I made to look like a volcanic rock face so as to blend in better wit asteroids and debris fields as it breaks up the light better

I played Armored Core 1 years ago when it came out but not since then. I've been asked a few times if I get my insperation from that game and I have to say no though it was a fun game for a while : )

Very impressive piece of work. As usual, I love the coloring and the nice detail, but I also noticed that the texturing is also really nice as well. But damn, if that thing is big enough to be a ship, just how big are those guns? :o

Still, I like the concept/backstory that came with this piece. Awsome work!

:iconcgvickers:
CGVickers Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2007
if you think of how big a mech is in general to a ship, a mobile armour so to speak would be massive. This thing is estimated to sit at about 90ft and could hug most ships (in this fictional universe) and has a small crew so other than the fact it's humanoid, it's pretty much a ship. As for the detail, I tried a few new things this time arround and have to say I'm happy with how it turned out : )

I think the average height is between 30-40ft but I really havn't payed too much attention to that. I should figure it out really

I agree with you, it's a very well done design. Of course, if this mech is 90ft tall, how tall are normal mechs in this universe?
