Phantom BG v2.0 by CGVickers Phantom BG v2.0 by CGVickers
Ok, so it's sorta old stuff but this is basically how I wanted this one to look but never got arround to finishing it. I like the idea of a full shot on the right side with a close-up of the head in the BG. I'd like to add a little more subtle detail in the title bar but perhaps simplicity works best here. The mech has been seen before but labels and warnings have finally been added. I would have tried a little weathering at 's suggestion but I wanted this one to look pristine.

Undoubtably the best mech design I have ever seen. Do you have an X-Box 360? There is a new Armored Core game that is supposed to have great controls: Armored Core 4.

Cool! Have you ever played "Armored Core"? It's a game of mechs similar to this.

I played the first one a long time ago. I found that things looked cool but the gameplay was jerky and difficult at times

I knew it! I've played the first and the second! And some things in your mech were familiar to me.
Reply
:iconcgvickers:
CGVickers Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2006
If there is anything familiar, it's completely coincidental. I try not to base my designs off of anyone else's works. I think we just have similar styles because my work used to be based off of Macross & ZOE designs. I actually stoped watching or following anything mecha related when I started working on my MDG designs in hopes of having no outside influence.

I am courious though, what reminds you of Armored Core? I've only played the first one and that was about 7 years ago (maybe more).

It's simple, the last time that I've played the second was 2 months ago, I like the game.

I haven't seen any mecha from you in a while and I love the way you color it to make it look oh so shiny and brand new -*w*-!! Dude you soOoO have to do a tutorial one day.. it's amazing :wow:

Thank you : ) I think I was really upset when I did this since it was shortly after my love broke up wit me. Well I have a pic in my scraps gallery of a mech I'm colouring for a collab with a friend from Shezzy and given the time, I fully plan on doing a mech drawing and colouring tutorial. I havn't had a lot of time to draw because I've been building a website for my card business (involving chibis). Its nearing completion but there is still a lot of work. If you're interested, I'll send you a note with a link to get past the place holder to see what I've done so far : )

Thank you very much : ) I actually have a sketch (might be in my scraps gallery) that features it beaten up slightly. I'd love to get back to doing a lot more mecha and I still have some unfinished designs but I seem to be so busy these days that I can't always work on the stuf I want to : /

Hm, very nice design and excellent artwork, but the name "Experimentelle Phase Maßeinheit" doesn`t make
any sense in that context. :giggle:

Ah, never mind. As a German, it always cracks me up to see manga-stlyed artwork with
silly german-sounding words.

I think when you used "Maßeinheit" you wanted to translate "unit" to geman. Just get rid of the "Maß-" syllabel,
and "Phase" ,then its ok. I would also add something like "Kampf-", just to emphasize the military character of this
mecha.

Some possible alternate Titles :

MDG Phantom
- "Experimentelle Kampfeinheit Version XX" (insert Versionnumber)
- "Experimenteller Waffenträger"
- "Experimental-Angriffs-Roboter" (That sounds lame...)

Well, enough of my bickering. Keep up the good work.
:D

CGVickers Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2006
Well thank you for your help : ) Unfortunately for me, not knowing the language, I just use babelfish to translate : / As for Kampf-, the problem is I've seen way too many vehicles with that name and so I try and avoid it because evewryone who doesn't know it asks if I meant Kampfer from Gundam for a name. Very annoying, but thanks for the help again : )

Take another look. One is from the front mostly and the other is from the side. The closeup allows for a little more detail and I have the sensor eyes off in this one
