Svart Draken

Título

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.

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.

Черный призрак

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.

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.

I´ve been working on a short sci-fi story about a scientist that is trapped in a ship that is lost adrift in the outer space and the ship is infested with mechanical insects of unknown origin, as the ship travels the robotic insects slowly eat the ship and the scientist desperately looks for a way to survive.

So far i have made several illustrations in different moments, actually i started with one drawing and then the idea started to grow and take form, when i began to write i made some other sketches, here you can see some of them.
