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!
