the first of a series of ten mechs. just a teaser, pictures will follow a lot later...
About this creation
The following pages are a hommage to mechcreators all over the pages. I took lots of inspiration and good lessons on Jeff Ranjo, Brian Kescenovitz, Nunoyo Bizznizz, Bob Flux, Mike Yoder, Ryu Kwi, Matt S., Uspez Morbo, Dennis Coh, Mark Neumann, Darkspawn & Mathew Rames.
This is my first try on mechs in general, so I tried to keep it to simple designs. Meaning not minifigmanned, no Z-legs and no militarian look (due to a short on grey). The biggest challenges were:
- hiding the moving joints and still keep it poseable
- creating shapes I hadn't seen before
- sticking to 2 or 3 colours
- creating new feet designs
- getting out bricks I useally don't
- trying some variations on guns, canons, lasers, weaponry in general
- and balance
the fun parts to do were:
- no limits on proportions
- I really love doing the feet!
- lots of alien features, especially the head
next of ten to come are: Nebula and Iron Maiden.
yeah, I know, first the names and then the creations. Hey, that's just me!
Ohhh sick! I love the blue mech and how you designed the head. The red one reminds me of a Mechwarrior medium sized mech, very cool. The green one has cool fingers and some nice guns! Keep up the good work Giovanni!
Oh WOW man! those are some NEAT looking mechs. Can't wait to see more!! PS: So, you're a fan of stoner rock eh? :) I agree; music always inspires me with cool names! Have u heard Karma to Burn? THey rock!
Your style is really recognizable Giovanni. There's a lot to like on each of these! The head design on Monster Magnet is my favorite feature followed by the great foot design of Motorpsycho! Nice as always to see your stuff!
Ok dude under me, u got issues. These mechs are actually good. And its not really a teaser, its a few mocs in a series, and hes just telling us that there will be more by saying that its a teaser. Sometimes, people are just noobs, like you, guy under me. Anyways, These mechs are great, especially the feet design. I will be expecting more. Nice Job!
