WALKER TANK mobile artillery by dangeruss WALKER TANK mobile artillery by dangeruss
Based on concept art by Malaveldt : [link] and [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 armor 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, camoflauge and stencils were added in Photoshop.

Why does the whole vehicle have to be dedicated to a single artillery barrel?

It's cool, but that cockpit looks awfully exposed. Still, being an artillery piece, I'm guessing it's not meant to enter the thick of the fighting, only to pound the stuffing out of stuff from afar where it is safe from retaliation.

The body is nice and the dual cannons are great but the operator and crew are very exposed.

It's an artillery, not a front-line unit. Many artillery pieces even today have exposed crew areas.

I really like the concept and the rendering, except that it looks like the cammo pattern was done as an afterthought.
Look carefully and you can see that some areas have the pattern continue where it isn't likely to do so, like when there is a gap between two elements, there should be a break in the pattern, but in the drawing it looks like the pattern was simply added to the image on a top PS layer.
Sorry, just call me detail oriented...nice job, though :-]

The benefit of articulated legs is easier movement over uneven ground. o: Though, this is only in comparison to plains and stuff. A tracked tank will easily outstrip a walker on a plain or concrete. Walkers can just do more stuff like go through swamps and mountainous areas.

You can't actually put copyrighted on there can you? If you didn't regester it I mean.

Until you do, if someone "steals" your idea here, it won't hold up in court.

Great design by the way!

The idea that a work of art must be registered to be copyrighted is false.

Besides, if Joe Slime comes along and takes that image and after an edit or two decides that it belongs to him, the owner's server log will have the dated information that will allow a proficient lawyer to body-slam the slime into a slippery, dark stain on the floor.

And the "fair use" clause does NOT give you the right to take someone else's work, make some changes then call it yours.
