Oh look, it's a Vulture (Mad Dog) from Battletech/Mechwarrior.

That is a great mechanical design, with a good deal of well-detailed fiddly bits.

That poor woman's spine looks broken, though.

This looks fantastic, I can imagine fighting one in R-Type or Contra, I'd love to see stuff like this in modern games.

I have an idea of what design sensibilities you were drawing from, but the end result is uniquely your own.

Wonderful work overall, including the Amelia, though you didn't actually drew her.

Awsome Design, kinda seems like a scout/fire support mech. You put a lot of detail into its design, thats for sure

That was made in Sketchup? Holy dicks. Shows how much I've been paying attention to it in the past few years.

Simple Mech, just like in Mechwarrior world. I like the way you add texture on it. It's transformable?

Transformable....but nothing fancy like Zeta Gundam or stuff from Macross. :\

Is there a version of this units with arms? It seems to be a shame to waste those nice shoulders by using them only for missiles.
Reply
:icongrid-gunner:
grid-gunner Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2009
Hah. Nah, no arms this time around. I wanted to keep the bird-like shape.

Why not wings that fold down then? It would make a lot more sense, and could have missile bays attached to it.

It would be similar to the wings Optimal Optimus has on his shoulders.

grid-gunner Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2009
Thats a good idea too. Perhaps a variation of this vehicle may have large wings for an improved flight ability. :)

Jesus, you know what I just realized? This entire thing reminds me of the Vikings from Starcraft 2.

I like very much. The adaptability of the design is the biggest draw for me, but the pleasing ergonomics of it's form is a nice bonus! What is it's intended role in the realm of combat? I ask, because it seems highly mobile and suited for a recon-style role, but the armaments suggest something between a skirmisher and fire-support. Again, great design brother. This is oh so faved :D

:icongrid-gunner:
grid-gunner Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2009
Hmmm...I don't really like to think too much about its capabilities. I like to keep them open. ;)

So far I can imagine that it's a lightly armored vehicle that are good at taking out ground units that have nonexisting/limited anti-air weapons. Those units will have an extremely hard time keeping track of and targeting the Urvogel. But if they can manage a shot or two (from a tank for example), the Urvogel is scrap metal. :D

Bountydog Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2009
Neat! Seems like the kind of thing that would be assigned to either a disposable frontline force, or a special forces unit aiming for mobility/versatility. I like how you give your weapons reasonable flaws/perks; it makes them seem more realistic :D

I like characters/designs with weaknesses. Personally it makes them more interesting. :D
