Draw robots, post robots, have a good time.
>>21514194The one on the right looks like Rhino, pretty cool
>>21514194Nice. Are those normal legs on the left one or is it a barbus situation?
>>21514207Thank you.>>21514533Legs with hands for feet. There might be more flexibility to them than that, but that was my intention.
Drew this recently.
>>21514190Some ideas I have for new robots to sculpt using a previous mold as a base
>>21515256Cat robot ..
>>21515940Here's cat robots I made last year, been improving my skills so I wanted to redo the concept
This took 3 days
>>21516526This is the greatest image ever posted.
Bump, I'd like to draw something for this thread later
I have some sketches
started clean up and drew a burb
>>21520636What about a goog holding a burb?
>>21520638It would have to be a big one
Any drawanons have tips for drawing bots?
Last post came out sideways, not sure why.
City but also a robot
Hopefully not sideways, last one.
>>21520636Fantastic, very meticulous>>21520795animating boxes spinning around helped me understand perspective enough to do what I do.
>>21520795While any advice depends on what works for you.You're mixing perspectives. You ideas are sound but you have indecisive strokes.You can't tell where half the stuff is facing so it just muddys the entire piece.Stop relying on going back and deciding stuff. Do it when you put the line down.Being indecisive is what kills people and you end up just wasting your time.
>>21522084I'm sketching with a ballpoint pen on receipt paper, I would moreso attribute "indecisiveness" to I can't erase and kind of just muddle it out. Though the point about mixing perspective is interesting, wouldn't you have to mix perspective considering various parts of the machine face different directions?
>>21523145nta, but the perspective doesn't change, you only have one perspective in a drawing. What changes is how the shapes look based on their relation to the point of view and the vanishing point(s).
I drew a custom pirate Daughtress, cause I love the designs from Gundam X
>>21520254the anatomical right arm seems bigger on these. it's a nifty design overall, though.
OP here, check out my Locust sketch>>21520254Your robots are very well proportioned.>>21520636This is top quality stuff>>21520795I recommend taking your time and learning symmetry at 3/4th angles, a bit specific but it's how I taught myself how to draw mecha>>21523769Gundam X is top tier, your colors are also pretty sweet
do any of you guys do this stuff?
>>21522084>indecisive strokesI haven't even posted anything I drew in the thread and I'm already getting sound advice
>>21524551Oh, that time of the year again. I participated for a couple of years, but didn't have time anymore after 2020.
>>21524551Haven't done it before, but I'd love to try for it this year.
>>21520795learn basics first.>>21524551I tried once, but got too hung on individual images and never managed to complete
>>21524551How is this supposed to work?
>>21525244Thought it was a frog from the thumbnail. Love it still, love me some heroic scarves on mecha
>>21520795ellipse perspective studies are very helpful
>>21525149you draw a mecha every day of the month based on the month's prompt i think
First time drawing a Marauder (or two robots in a dynamic scene, for that matter)
first time here, rewatched F91 and did this, its got guncannon shoulder guns, a handheld version of the F91's VSBRs, and a retractable beam shieldis there a way to become faster besides just drawing more? this took me the better part of 2 weeks
>>21526611Do not, under any circumstances, skip parts of the process. Draw consistently and practice old and new techniques often. Drawing is just like working out and Da Vinci was a bodybuilder. Shortcuts are the artists way of taking steroids, and we all know those won't help.
>>21526197>>21525041The prompts are primarily suggestions for the artists who need a nudge to get going. They're ignored as much as they're followed.
>>21526197>>21526876How do the modifiers work?
Just a doodle I gave up on partway through
>>21526611Adding to what the other anon said.The main aspect of getting better faster is intent and consistency.Work smarter not harder type of shit.It goes for learning anything faster. Really think why this technique does this but not that.Copy professional level stuff and breakdown every aspect of it. Why are they doing this, why that, etc.Compared your work to professions. Be willing to fairly criticize your work and where you need to improve.If you want to get better faster you can no longer afford to be a hobbyist. You take it seriously.
>>21526876So basically I can just draw any mecha and attach the hashtag to it? I never participated before so I thought there would be a consistent theme or something.
I return with a new drawing, its name is Psychocrime II. Thoughts?
>>21514190mechs from a /qst/ thread a while back.
>>21528986mech concepts for an abandoned game.
>>21528986are these from an evo thread? i should check in more, i'd love to play a mecha evo game
>>21529009There might be a pseudo evo/ RPG game in the coming month. Depends on work/ life schedule.Here are the "Mech" related entries. Heroic examples, and downgraded starters. Power armor is still in work.They are at their full scale, but look better at around 200% in paint.
>>21529036plunderer looks sick, like some sort of cosmo babylonia MS that got salvaged
>>21528664Yes.>>21526903Dunno, those weren't there in previous years. I'd just ignore those.
>>21528664I love the face on this guy; you really captured Obari's "handsome robot man" aesthetic
>>21529110Damn, was hoping you could tell me how they worked cause I feel like that additional bit of prompt would help push me to come up with things
drew up this one back in november still not to great at digital art in general dont really have the time rn to buckle down and fully learn and get good at drawin on the puter rn
Destiny Mecha Comm
This thread must not die!
You guys got any tips for rendering? I don't really color drawings on digital, but my drawings tend to look like a chicken scratch of a mess so I'm trying to at least add flat colors. I've got no clue what I'm doing though and it's kind of boring and annoying to do.
wish i had more to sharei really want to draw and 3d model mechs, but im too self conscious to even try most of the timeplus i cant ever finish anything
>>21520795The basics of robutts are close to simple construction, focus on that. Drawing spheres, boxes, and cylinders all at different angles. Then you can work on things like fillets, panel lines, etc. Don't be afraid to draw over references, not to use in finished work but to get the "feel" of how various parts are to draw. Drawing is one part rules, one part "visual library" of things you can easily project in your imagination, and a major part muscle memory which you can only get by various forms of practice.
BarGM III sketch
>>21537604Based taste, anon
I return with a new design, its name is Odysseia
>>21534050>>21539556I really like the older style riffles. it's very refreshing
>>21524551If I'm doing this, is it fine to post the drawings here
>>21516254That's really cool anon, how do you make them?
>>21534050The grip on the rifle looks a bit awkward.
>>21539607You may thank Re-GZ Custom for inspiring me. Wooden furniture belongs on more weapons
>>21524551Day 1. Meant for this guy to have dual khopesh and for them to combine into a scissor sword a la Sundowner, but I ran out of space to show the second khopesh and to draw what the combination would look like
>>21534050Love the head
>>21540664excellent work, i'm kinda reminded of the jenice with how thick it is
>>21540813It was definitely in my mind, I love the Jenice so much (and Gundam X designs in general, I also drew the Daughtreas in this thread)
>>21540867i should get to watching X, it seems like it'd be fun
>>21524551I tried the thing
>>21541668i like how kinda freaky the proportions and shapes are, it feels a little organ-like which really helps convey the heart theme
>>21550544i love this kind of simple style with no AA
Could you guys do me a solid and click the first option for black?https://twitter.com/musashi_project/status/1631538489924911104
>>21551632Anti-Aliasing is for zeeks and terrorists
/m/ has led to me into /o/ and /aceg/ and sometimes I go and see if there's any aircraft threads on /k/
>>21556161Help this lost anon
>>21524551I meant to do this, but I just got started on painting gunpla recently and I've been hyperfixating on it so hard that I've done basically zero drawing in over a week. It feels weird too cause I don't even feel guilty about it like I usually would, mainly just a little embarrassed I told a friend I was gonna do it and then quit after a day.
>>21559223maybe it's better that wayi'm on day 10 and i've already kinda burnt myself out despite forcing out only mediocre designs
I return with a High Mobility F71 custom and a Javelin which I tried to make look meaner, based on a sketch I found online
might be an odd request but any of you drawfags good at creating logos (like, the kind of thing you'd see on a mecha show) or know anybody who can?I'm working on a project and I need to find someone to commission to create a title logo for it.
>>21560351I can do that
>>21559773somehow the chest feels oversized on the g-cannon custom
i hate to beg for drawings but if someone feels like drawing Anubis from Stargate SG-1 and Anubis from Zone of the Enders together I think that'd be cool
>>21560498Neat! Got any examples or a page?
i dont have any of my better polished stuff on hand rn but i got some doodles to share
Its been a while anons
>>21564943the zakrello redesign looks neatthe jet-looking one and the heavy leo look very well-realized toothis would all be excellent if you weren't a fucking rarityfag
>>21563754I only have one logo example as it's the only logo I've done... and its for a local construction company. Unsure if this will convince you I can do the job but I'm confident I can deliver something. Contact calico#5588 on discord if you're interested. (I am OP)
>>21563754>>21565416Here is a png of the logo
>>21565416>>21565418Ooh, dang. Interesting. Think you could try your hand at something like pic related? (I hope I didn't give the wrong impression by "title logo"...I meant like a cool title font for a series. With a Japanese sort of flare).
>>21565514I can do that, just message me and we can discuss the details
>>21565562Noice. I'll probably shoot you a message when I wake up!
Been working on this one on and off for a while. I wanted to practice drawing Getter Dragon, so I did this based off of the Revoltech figure.
>>21565979Here's a GIF of the workflow
Does painting miniatures count? This is still in progress.
>>21566737All anon-made /m/ content counts
>>21565064how would you achieve the "dirty shading" look on traditional art? crayons maybe? in any case, you're doing really good work and i hope you keep it up
>>21514190What old school mechwarrior fans hear in their nightmares: "Mech power-up detected."FUCK HE'S BEHIND ME!!!!1
>>21565062>>21565064good to see your art, amazing as always, especially that Zambot.
>>21567045I draw everything in photoshop, there is a charcol brush I use and slightly alter the settings to give it a Xerox like appearance.
>>21565416>>21565418>>21565514>>21565562Oh yeah sent you discord DM request! I'll catch you when I can!
>>21567151Thanks anon, here's an effects shot I made this week
Anybody know where I can find a military vehicle paint color palette?
>>21567816You can sample the color from stock photos.
doodling some hasbro mech stuff with more 1960s sensibilities
>>21567682>>21567685I really like the authenticity you're going for, do you have a blog yet?
>>21569075I recently made a twitterhttps://twitter.com/jr23s1?t=jZDSkN3_PcITm_PpjqWN3Q&s=09
>>21569029Amazing, love the shapes. do you have a blog?
REQUEST>Obari robot or robot in Obari-esque pose with its head hanging like pic related>POV as close as the 90 degree may allow and still have the joke work>Caption: OBARI DA
>>21579059I have idea why to pull Obari style, but i did your Biden tilt robot
>>21567259I meet your Graphite with pixels.
I am learning animation and did this for a first project. It is not as good as it could be because I spent spring break playing cyberpunk 2077 and watching anime instead of working on it.
>>21579571Oh hey thats that mech from that challange.
