The Sirocco is a mass production light combat mech, it has many variants for combat, training, exploration and weapon testing. Some variants are also called Manticore but basically is the same machine.
Estás son algunas fotos que he tomado en mis vistas a las convenciones de modelismo en la Ciudad de México tomadas en diferentes años, siempre se pueden encontrar muy buenos trabajos y diversos tipos de modelos.
La categoría que suele tener mas participantes es la de aviación, destacan los aviones militares de diferentes épocas y escalas aunque también siempre hay un buen número de aviones civiles y no pueden faltar aviones de la Fuerza Aérea Mexicana.
En la sección de ciencia ficción destacan modelos de Alien, Macross, Gundam, Star Wars, Maschinen Krieger, Yukikaze, etc.
The idea for this illustration has been around my head since 1994, i made the first sketch in 1995 and the forgot about it, until 2010, when i reworked the idea.
Svart Drake is the main combat mecha (Kriegskellet) of the Koraz Empire, designed to engage in combat with 2 or 3 enemy mechas simultaneously, for that reason it was made with four arms, so it can handle twice the weaponry compared to normal mechas, it has two fixed rapid fire plasma cannons in the main arms, and two smaller arms with manipulators to handle a variety of weapons, like machine guns and rifles.
The cannons and the powerful radar are optimized to take down enemies at large distances and the Svart drake is agile and fast to figth at short range, it is equipped with experimental techonologies like the thermo-chromatic skin covering the armor, that changes of colour automatically to camouflage itself with the surroundings.
The Svart Drake has many limitations too, it is not very resistant because the armor was sacrificed in order to make it fast, agile and able to carry many weapons. Another interesting feature is that a small flying drone can be attached to the back of the mecha, the drone can fly autonomously to search for enemies and send the information to the Svart Draken, so it can attack beyond visual range.
Teotihuacán “The place where men became gods” is a name given to it by the Nahuatl speaking Aztecs when they discovered the ruins centuries after the city fell. Teotihuacan was a pre-Columbian Mesoamerican city located near the Valley of Mexico, known today as the site of many of the most architecturally significant Mesoamerican pyramids built in the pre-Columbian Americas. Apart from the pyramids, Teotihuacan is also anthropologically significant for its complex, multi-family residential compounds; the Avenue of the Dead; and the small portion of its beautiful murals that have been exceptionally well-preserved.
One of my dreams was to visit the Monino Air Force museum, it wasn´t easy but was really cool to see all those clasic aircraft, in the museum one can see all the models of the Soviet and Russian Air Force, it was really inspiring to watch all those flying machines, a great experience for any aircraft enthusiats.
Estas algunas fotos que tomé en mi visita a Monino, el museo más grande de aviación en Rusia, es un lugar muy interesante porque se pueden ver aviones desde los inicios de la aviación soviética hasta los más actuales cazas rusos, además de interesantes prototipos como el Yak-141 Freestyle y el Yak 36 Freehand , transportes como el An-22 Antei, aviones que dieron pie al desarrollo de los actuales aviones de combate.
Черный призрак (Black Ghost), Is part of a long time personal project, i have made many sketches of different mecha that i´ve been drawing for years but haven´t finished, now that i have been practicing more and improved a little in digital painting i will be working on other models and slowly will be posting more of these machines and parts of the story.
I made this original mecha design inspired by all the cool japanese robots from animation and videogames that i have seen since i remember, speacially, Macross, The five star stories and Gundam.
Черный призрак is the main mecha used to combat the Koraz Empire, it was made with long and strong arms capable to handle many different types of weapons.
Reworked version of Иулюс Mk. II battle armor, i made this illustration some months ago for a calendar, some friends, designers and illustrators asked me to join to a collective, we´ve been drawing a lot and they decided to make a calendar so this is my work for the month of july, below you can see the sketches and details for the helmet and the process, all was painted in photoshop with normal brushes, i added some textures for detail, this has been a good practice and i learned a few things while making this illustration, the gun was drawn in a vector program and all textures and colour added in the final illustration.
