This piece is a impressive show of technical skill and knowledge. Each visible mechanical component is believable and feasible, which adds much of weight to the picture. The details like the hexagonal 'hive' decals bring a natural element to it which adds a nice balance to the machine elements. The shading is well rendered, though it could be slightly less faded on the back legs. The colors, though realistic, could be brighter, perhaps more vibrant, as this would add a little more power to the pic. However it still holds its own, and it is overall a fantastic piece. Bravo!

seems that its primary drive motor is in the back set of legs......and secondary ones in the front 2 navigate tuff terrain and provide extra balance when firing its primary cannon...right? any way the build is great detail and structure wise.....smart of u 2 place the main engine and power gengerater in the back. has better def that way, also this vehicle would be at a great disadvantage if atked form behind. i would recommend heavier armor in the back sections 2 increase protection of valuable systems. also the view port bumble is smart so maxim field of sight. a great feature would be having a small turret on the rear end; 2 improve offensive capabilities and as a plus improving your view of the battle field. sorry for all these pointers... that would be what i would do personaly. u r the artist so don't pay attention 2 me

This is wicked, love the design! From a technical standpoint, though, it needs more legs. Accuracy at range is all about stability!

I love this, amazing drawing, looks like every visible component actually would run it, very realistic, though, it seems very video-gamish, with the small lack of armor in the back and engine being uncovered.
Amazing piece!

you're work is a very creative and cool concept, i've watched your video and if it's ok, i'd like to clarify something, in the earlier part of the video ( where the frontal armor part is still blue) did you use the blur tool to better blend the highlights and shading in that area?

love the Predatory organic look this thing has.

It has a feasible look about it. The legs do look like they are designed to keep the main gun trained correctly over rough terrain and yet still be able to absorb the recoil of the gun.

I would say though that it would probably be a slow platform so I would guess this is design to be used as strategic artillery rather than in close support quick reaction units

i'm no expert but the perspective on the back leg facing the viewer and the cannon looks off. the design is really unique though, so props for that

Yeah the back leg is raised a bit compared to the opposite side one with no real change in terrain.

But I don't care, I like big guns!

When you're a competent professional some day, it will be because you wrote so many essays. Every sentence you're teacher is forcing you to write is only improving your capacity to become a successful adult. Tell your teacher she is doing a great job.

And thanks for the complement. I'm not just at this stage because I'm talented or skilled, but because I'm competent professional who had to write a lot of essays in my life, and I'm grateful for every one.
