SteamJunk Mecha by Hideyoshi SteamJunk Mecha by Hideyoshi
Wasn't happy with the last mecha so I did another steampunk based version... :P

Something about this guy's upper body is bugging me quite a bit, but I am too lazy to fix it now... mainly it's the perspective being off...
I feel like I am in an extreme artistic slump like I cannot appreciate anything I do or something like that... :(

Here some steps, I actually like wip4 the most because it has the best read I think.

I'd be glad to hear some crits!

Great job! i love the attention to detail and the creative use of parts to make the mecha. Also, the composition is great. There's something about this that has that Calliebotte look to it. I thought of his painting "Paris Street Rainy Day" when I looked at this.

if this is a slump..... hmm I'd say the fading of the upper body has too much of a harsh contrast to it, the hatch/circular bit seems somehow unconnected to the guns above

I like it! As has been said before the body competes with the foreground and the 'roundness' of the perspective with regards to the distinctive shape of the steam engine body both hang my eyes up. Additionally it seems like one leg attaches toward the rear (viewers right) while the other attaches squarely on the side (viewers left).

Still I love the concept and the colors!

I don't usually go for the machine art, but the steampunk elements on this caught my eye. Like the others who have commented, the inclusion of things like the train, car, etc. are interesting and fun. Faved.

Pure genious, man!
It's nice to see this amount of detail put in to a picture.
Some critique: Maybe the blur is too strong? The center-piece of the mech seems to stand out too much.

thanks! I think the focus is not very clearly established because the upper part of the mecha is competing with the other focal point down where the figures stand

Wow, a steampunk-work that really does consider itīs Victorian origins, thatīs rare!

What might be wrong with the upper part is that it doesnīt look complete. With such a (for a mech) 'small' body, the legs look unnecessary bulky, since they donīt need to support so much weight. Also, with these kind of mechs it does just look better to have a large body and smaller legs, for example like [link] or [link]
Additionally, i think itīs shape is a bit unfortunate here, it seems quite 'round' and not significantly, memorable shaped. I love the idea of the train, but from this perspective it has no chance to stand out enough, blurr your eyes and the upper part is just a meshed ball...

What i really like about it are the asymmetrical cannons and the small latter, which makes it so much more believable in a way, dunno why, but this detail is a huge plus for me =)

ay, thanks a lot - great crits!
The shape is really boring, I agree. I think I pushed the haphazard junk theme a little too much without respecting from aesthetics.
And Victorian era rulez!!

I like how its legs are made from different parts, but on the whole have the same proportions. That's really fun to look at.
