New Age Weapon by AlfaFilly New Age Weapon by AlfaFilly
Whoooooo completion you smell so beautiful.

I'm pleasantly surprised how quick this took (er... well, 3 or 4 days isn't precisely "quick" but much quicker than I anticipated). I'm quite proud of the finished product too. I haven't drawn mecha in... I don't even remember. Maybe my (now discontinued) Ambivian cyborg dogs, whenever that was. Blacorite are technically mecha I guess, but they don't look like it so I don't count them. It was incredibly difficult considering how many fine details there are and I can't count how many times I got lost. I ended up excluding and/or simplifying a couple little parts I didn't understand but otherwise I tried to keep true to the character design.

But anyway! This is "Amy" a character belonging to the talented :iconjsa-arts: as part of a trade. I know nothing about her personality, purpose, or backstory, so I just had to wing it on where and how to place her in a setting! She was my favorite of the characters simply because the sleek black metal was beautifully appealing.

Background is somewhat random in that I don't know what it is or where it is. My only thought was something hugely contrasty, since sleek pretty robotthings wouldn't normally be in dirty, rusty looking places. And it heightened her badassery. It somewhat reminds me of my Chernobyl Curs story with its decrepit buildings.

Anyway, hope you enjoy! :heart:

For the funzies, here's a few links of progression shots:
Character only, minus BG and effects
Original sketch idea to get used to character design (also ugly)
Sketch

And here is his half of the trade!


Also opening critiques for feedback purposes but I may not change anything that requires redrawing large parts of her. It was hard enough the first time ;n; But I do wish to improve for next time! I may alter parts that are more easily editable, though.

Thank you! And indeed, it was tricky but thankfully despite his incredibly painty realism he still has that touch of cartoon-isque quality to make things fun!

I agree she looks beautifully sleek and rather battle ready where I would love to fight with her then against her.  So all in all wow
