Search and Rescue Mech by dangeruss Search and Rescue Mech by dangeruss
Based on concept art by Malaveldt : [link]

Mike has become my favorite conceptual artist lately. His ideas and art are very inspiring. I wrote him with a request to recreate some of his stuff in 3D and received his blessing, so here's another collaborative work.

This is another of his fantastic walking armored creations. While I'm unsure of the benefits of articulated legs, they sure look bad-ass.

Modeled 3D Studio MAX over a 4-day period. A lighting pass was rendered in Vray and a line art image was rendered using Illustrate 5.4 plugin for MAX. Colors, additional line work, details and stencils were added in Photoshop.

Very nice! I tried to recreate that Malaveldt mech. Never got around to finishing though. Plus my skills are way less than yours! :O

nice one, and for once a walker design that dosn't look as if it's going to topple over, with nice wide feet and overall balance.

I usually find mech designs woefully implausible looking, and while I'm no engineer, this just feels like it could shift. Very cool.

"... While I'm unsure of the benefits of articulated legs, they sure look bad-ass."

wouldn't articulated legs be useful in uneven terrain? for example hillside forests, rocky inclines, that type of stuff. did you see the youtube video of the real life 6 legged mech they use to cut down trees? same principle i'm guessing...

BTW that pic kicks SO much ASS. the detail is amazing not to mention that it looks like it might actually work!

nice work. You've done a really nice adaptation of the original sketch, some nice changes and little touches.

Really diggin this style too, half render half toon... gives it more an animated feel like it's about to jump into action. Really nice.

your ability to improvise details that aren't there is mind-numbing... this piece even on top of your others demonstrates that. in a studio, you would be a concept artist's dream to work with!
