Mechs!!

So I'm taking this class called "Vehicles and Props" this term, where we got a very open-ended assignment of designing whatever sort of vehicle or prop that we wanted. I decided to do a "Gladiatorial Mech-Suit", which I defined as essentially a large robot manned by a single pilot whose sole purpose is to beat the crap out of other robots for sport on TV. I figure they will all have corporate sponsors like CocaCola, AT&T, etc. Also, I decided it was all hand-to-hand, no projectiles. Think wrestling, but with giant robots. Anyway, here are some of the sketches:





(The first one is a continuation of the one I did over the summer for Carlo Arellano)

I'm amazed at how much I have progressed at designing mechanical objects even since the summer. Its always an awesome feeling to see noticeable progress in your work.

In two weeks I have to finish up the design, as well as do a final rendering. Wish me luck!

Great work! Love mechs! (What was that robot arena combat show called?)

The last page of robots looks sort of familiar though... something about angled heads and sword arms....
