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.
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.
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.
