Dominance War IV - Mecha by Hideyoshi Dominance War IV - Mecha by Hideyoshi
hopping on the DW IV train, lets see if I can finish this :)
I definitely gonna do a mecha thingy, here's what I have so far...
I know it's still rather stereotype so any crits would be appreciated! :)
gonna make some head variations and possibly something different for his feet...
dunno about the shield - looks pointless...

Hey, really nice! I really dig the overall design, but if you ask for critique i´ll give you some! =P

I´d also suggest to throw the shield away.
Actually, i really like the legs and the waist, they have interesting shapes and joints. Maybe you could bring in some animal-elements rather than doing humanoid mechas all the time? I´ve also thought about drawing a mecha for some time now, but mine would have these typical animal-legs like from a dog or a bird maybe.

Alos, if the waist wasn´t this thin, it could also be seen as a sci-fi armor instead of a giant mecha. The gun might also look better if hold like the sword, straight like the arm, instead of this angle-position.
It still has a lot of potential in my opinion, just fix one or two things.

ah thanks a lot for the great pointers!
I already revised some bits, check it out here:

much happier with the legs and especially the feet now.
Still need to tackle the upper body and head!
I agree, the gun looks clumsy that way, I need to find a solution there as well...

Ah, you´re right!
The feet look great, reminds of how Takeshi Ohbata draws some crazy boots, like [link] and [link]
The real killer is the head though. Keep it like that, i´d piss my pants if something like that comes rushing at me on the battlefield..!

actually the rocket launchers are in his shoulder (those holes) and his left arm is some type of heavy gun. The shield is attached to his right shoulder.
maybe that cleared some things up...? :)
