Battletech - Set 8 complete by Amuscaria Battletech - Set 8 complete by Amuscaria
Finished my final project today, and had some extra time to draw again. I haven't drawn in over a month thanks to school work. :/

I've taken the time to begin the 8th set of Battletech drawings, starting off with a commission. I will add some of my newer designs here as well; ones that I've sketched but never completed.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
INFO:

1) Scorpion II - 3063: This is a commission for the 3063 TRO. It's also the first quad-mech I've drawn. I'm surprised that it didn't turn out like ass like all previous attempts. This thing has a Gauss Rifle, 2 Med Lasers, 2 ER Med Lasers, 2 AMS, and 4 jump jets.

2) Culverin Prime - 3063: This is a redrawn version of an older mech I made for the 3063 TRO. Was originally something of my own, but then it looked too heavy. Thus it was converted as a replacement. The Culverin Prime carries a AC/10, A ER-PPC, LRM-10, and 2 ER Med. Lasers.

3) Fighting Falcon: One of the newest commissioned mechs I've finished. The thing is 55 tons with a AC-5, LRM-5, SRM-6, a ER Large Laser, and a Targeting computer. The cockpit is large because it's a double. Was trying slightly different styles on the Battletech 'mechs to see how they fit together. I didn't want to make it too anime-like, or it loses some of the BT feel.

4) Myrmidon: Was originally a custom Wolverine, but it looked too different to bare that name. This thing carries a Heavy-PPC, MML-7, and ER Medium Laser. Has 5 Jump jets (JP-5). The design looks a bit too anime for BT, but think the drawing turned out decently.

5) Sorcerer - A mech of my own design that I tried to sketch out over half a year ago. The original sketch was a total failure, although the design looked similar to this one. I retried it last night and it came out ok. This is a 75-tonner IS mech with a ER PPC, HPPC, 3 Medium Lasers, and a LRM-15.

6) Battle Axe - This is a commissioned Battle Axe. The drawing is based on a mini-figure made by the client, not the canon TRO 3075 version.

7) Privateer (PV1k) - First of 2 models of the same mech. It's designed after the MekTek mech of the same name (which the original art was derived from). This version of the 3063-Privateer is 75 tons, armored with 2 UAC-5s, 2 MRM-20s, 2 Med. Lasers, and a ER-PPC. It's go 3 jump jets, but I didn't bother showing those in this picture.

8) Privateer (PV2L) - The second version of the 3063-Privateer. This variant has 2 ER Large Lasers, 2 ER Med. Lasers, and a LBX-10. This one has 4 Jump jets, which I didn't bother showing.

9) Isometrus (v.4) - took me 3 tries to redesign one of the first mechs that I made for the 3063 TRO. This came out the best of the 3. Starting to move away from the blocky look that my other mechs are based on and moving towards more of an smoothed out aerodynamic look to slowly ease my way into drawing airplanes. The war load on this thing is the same as before, 4 ER-Sm lasers, 2 Flamers, and 2 MGs.

10) Halberd - Was originally a custom Warhammer, but it looks different enough to get a new name. Took several attempts, and a long time to sketch and ink. This mech has 2 ER-PPCs, 2 SRM-6s, 2 ER-Med. Lasers, and 2 MGs.

11)Orochi - 3085: One of the 2 pieces I made for official CGL TRO 3085. The other was a tank, but I don't have enough of other tanks to upload it with. This is a Long-Bow based mech' with 2 Thunderbolt-20s, 2 SSRM-4s, and a ER Small Laser. The design is based on the MechWarrior 4 Longbow, by *Mecha-Master (David White).

Impressive designs; I have also been using SSW to create battlemechs myself, and the Sorcerer piked my curiosity. So I tried it out on SSW, and in order to fit in the battlemech's weapons, I had to build it using Endo-Steel, Ferro-Fibrous, and XL Engine. Is this how you built it in SSW?

I really like the smaller details of the nose art, numbering and hazard marks on your drawings. It just seems to provide more depth and scale in my opinion coming from working with the pewter BT figures.

I'm not a big fan of the battletech variety of mecha, but the detail here is enough to make me interested, which is def more than I could say for most BT art I see. Excellent work!

Nice variety in the designs. Admittedly, I don't know much about Battletech, but I can see a few styles here to suggest different military backgrounds.

For the Sorcerer, you mentioned a weapon on it Called The "HPPC" I can't find that in CBT Canon or Fanmade stuff anywhere. What does that stand for? I think it means Heavy Particle Projector Cannon, but I'd like to be sure, and determine it wasn't a typo.

GREAT STUFF btw lol

That's a really impressive collection!
I specially like the Fighting Falcon with his quasi-organic forms and the anime-style "blind" cockpit armor, the somehow "transformer-y" Sorcerer and the Isometrus (because of his not-so-bulky corpus and the relatively light looking feet, both of which transpire elegance and speed).

You surely don't need to hide when you get compared to many of the (other) artists that have got mechs published in the official TROs and i hope the matter with CGL will sometime in the future resolve so you can draw many more interesting and above all DIFFERENT designs to please the eyes of a new generation of Battletech fans.

Very cool take on the Warhammer.
Just to note; The Warhammer was a copy of the Macross' Tomahawk, I think the Archer was the copy of the Spartan.

Ah yes, I see it now. You and David White are very similar in style, might I say. I often thought others were yours, then noticed his signature on them.

I hope you were paid well for your contribution. CGL had a bit of a rough spot in the payment area just recently. Good job making the major leagues though! I definitely feel you've earned the right to stand side-by-side with the mainstay BT artists.

I just wish they hadn't let Lewis or Chaffee do mechs again...

these are epic, mind if i use some of them as illustration purposes for a rpg? im not going to print it or anything but some of the art design among your various uploads fits the rough ideas i was working on for it, making a sort of homebrew d20 armored core rpg and your art is perfect to show my small group of players my ideas i have

cool, there was about.. four of them that interested me as they fit very well with the idea ive got in mind and your Battletech redesigns are great, much more.. mech style then the old art Fasa churned out, its a shame such a great game has suffered so much, Once I was Sho-Sa Mitasaku Toma, commanding officer merc regiment, House Kurita, but that was years ago, anyways thanks!

The cactus is a fucking 'mech fighting over his head, I also cry.

The truth is that all drawings are really good, especially that of the Scorpion II with the two soldiers "spreading love" with his mechanic mate, the only thing I do not fit well are the hands of the Falcon, too delicate, like those of a terminator. Although this really is attributable to the original design.

The sorcerer is cool, I love the claw

I love the Fighting Falcon. It certainly has a slight anime feel to it, but as you said it still retains that 80s-western mech feel which stays true to the source art direction. Good call on the anime aesthetic though -- it certainly updates the look; making the design trendier and at the same time, a lot more logical as well.
