Great artwork! So much better than the original profile drawing in the Technical Readout book that made it look like the legs were about to fall off...

Heh. Thanks! That was always the most fun part of drawing for Battletech to me - Finding those mechs that looked only so-so, and figuring out how to make them look cooler, while still staying true to the original concept.

Well, you've really hit the mark with this one.;) So many of those designs from the doldrums of FASA were downright "meh"... I just could not see how they were supposed to fit together, never mind even move!

 

The highlight colour on the forearm cannons of this Mech pull your eyes in towards the middle... and I love the way the machine's braced on the slope of the ridge. So many pictures of BattleMechs have them standing on flat, even ground.

Thanks! You have quite an eye for the details, I must say ;)

But yeah... I was guilty of a few boring-pose / flat-ground mech drawings myself, but I got bored with that fast and really set out to put them in more dynamic poses and situations whenever possible.
