I put a human sized cyclopsbot in with heroes for the may submission. I've also have 2 giant sized ones with german markings in the works. The 1st is a larger version of the original with additional details and the second is a completely new drawing in a more dynamic pose. I'm excited to see an imagined army of german clunkers marching across the battel field.
I've also a cleaned up version of the walker that I'm going to paint up and mark for the allied forces.
With any luck the May Horde will have heroes, robots, and zombies a plenty for a brutal Weird War Skirmish.
It's a little less retro now, but retro robots are designed soo badly it's hurts me. Their lack of realistic joints makes it difficult to translate motion, or pose other than standing there.
The original sketch unintentionally had two different elbow types, and the head was too far forward. The head position would have been okay on anything with a human like neck, but I picture the robot with more of a rotating head mounted on top of a disk, and not having the range of motion that a human neck would, so it looked off, from the perspective of how I imagined it.
I have 2 more droids I just sketched out as well, but they are decidedly less retro and more Deathwalker like. I'm going to hold off on finishing them for now, since their not part of this months theme, and I may use them for a future project I have in mind.
I started to color the back art when I realized I drew it incorrectly. The outlines matched up, but which shoulder is forward doesn't. I knew something didn't look 100% right, and it took me until now to realize what it was. I've already redrawn it, but it will set me back a bit.

He looks great.
Will you be offering him in different poses? I'd like to see the marines turning a corner in the derelict space ship, and meet up with 5 of these guys. Wonder what the landing party will do as the robots reboot ...
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
