Chris explains in detail on his blog how the amazing art above came to light:
I began pulling inspiration from film, games and tons of art from the web. District 9 had one of the coolest mech designs I’ve seen in years and I loved how it even had an alien-like head with mandible like antennae that sort of mirrored the aliens that piloted them. So I thought it might be cool to make a giant, 20 ft. tall alien robot, sort of a zone guardian on an alien planet. I started some thumbs and explored different ideas, some having raptor-like legs with gun mounts and others having rows of giant, 8 ft. tall wheels. I really wanted this thing to look like it could move over terrain quickly and eliminate any intruders.
35 hours went into making this amazing piece and went through a number of draft ideas. Its always interesting to see the stages art designs go through before the final piece is achieved. :
Be sure to read all about the design development in Chris’s blog on the Robot Entertainment website:
