approximately 1 hours work in 3ds max 2014 (i need to keep better timer records).
The past few days have found me writing alot of Pacific rim fan fiction ideas. tonight however i took these ideas and make quick sketches of four of my Jaeger designs and two of the Kaiju (I will upload these later). after sketching them i decided to try my hand at once again rapidly modeling a quick version of them in max. this tiem however it came out quite successful!
This is Taronga’s Revenge, a Mk.2 Australian Jaeger. Commissioned after the 4th Kaiju incursion. On September 2nd, 2014, Scissure attacked and devastated the northern parts of Sydney, only being finally defeated by a second nuclear missile. As a result the northern part of the city was quarantined off due to Nuclear radiation and the toxic Kaiju blood known as Kaiju Blue.
Taronga’s Revenge is named for a world famous Zoo that was destroyed during the battle that housed hundreds of important and endangered animal species.
The jaeger is a tripod design, utilizing three highly mobile shock absorbing legs to traverse difficult terrain safely and give it a firm footing when engaged in combat. its special attack makes use of its 360 degree spinning waste, and the unit can spin rapidly while dealing out a flurry of punches. as a finishing touch, Taronga can deploy a ‘killing prod’ from either of its gauntlets: a 10m pole that can be electrified with high voltage current supplied from Taronga’s nuclear reactor. it was first deployed at the Sydney Shatterdome from August 3rd, 2015.
40 minutes in photoshop. part collage of google images of fremantle port, and part drawing tablet.
Inspired by Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, and a discussion with a friend about robot industrialization, and the Studio Ghibli short before Evangelion 3.33 entitled "Kyoshinhei Tokyo ni Arawaru" (Giant God Warrior Appears in Tokyo)

Several sketches i did on my tablet up to a few weeks ago. Moving the pictures across so that, in case i loose my tablet, they are preserved.
After watching more Macross and various other mech media, I’m still working on my own designs. this one was a cool idea i found, where the mech has a very large pair of wings mounted on the shoulders that fold up rather like eagle wings, and then transform into a lifting body type airplane, along with stealth design influences.
A robotic drone I designed for my LRR assignment. Not an essential component, but an idea that i quickly painted when i was bored of drawing mountains. they are called Flitters.
An autonomous robotic drone aircraft, they are used by the mega-cities for surveillance rescue and repair in dangerous climates or areas. Having the ability to take off and land vertically as well as able to climb virtually any surface, the drones are used most often to survey the surrounding areas of the cities to look for wolves, Find lost citizens who strayed too far out, or to repair parts of the city when human labourers would be inappropriate. They are the equivalent of UAV’s that are used to patrol shark beaches today or tomorrow.
Shown to scale with a human, they are about 1.7m tall when standing
I had this grand idea to make my tumblr a place where i can post all my awesome drawings and stuff as i do them. then i remembered how much i hate it when i try to use a tablet to try and ‘paint’.
Well, sticking to lineart
