Mecha - Durandal by MeganeRid Mecha - Durandal by MeganeRid
SS-A77 Durandal, a 13m tall attacking oriented mecha capable of electronic jamming, and equipped with a powerful rifle. Also armed with side and back missile launchers. Each arm has a 120mm machine gun on it, and there's also machine gun on each shoulder.

That would do as the mecha description :P

So this is the colored version, the lineart was actually finished on October 2006, but I feel like giving color to this, so with my other tasks it's just done earlier this month XD

lineart - 2B pencil on A4 paper
color - Painter & Photoshop

Can you tell me how you made this? You use some software? Or you hand draw then use some software to color only?

by any chance did you watch code geass before you drew this? it looks a lot like a knightmare.
Blackinkbarbarian Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2011
I like this one.

I was searching for drawings like this, thanks for drawing the pilot there as well. Now i have a clear picture on how tall 13 meters really is. :-)

Sweet, kinda reminds me of a Gundam and a robot Mecha off from some Anime show I've watched before. Nicely done there. Love it.

And the feet kinda reminds me of Bumblebees feet from Transformers: The Movie or Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen or 4 short (ROTF). But it justs barly kinda looks like it, mostly not but just a freaken parceially.

FieraRosette Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
You put a lot of thought into this drawing! Every detail from the paint of the mecha to the gun beside it is well thought out and proportioned. The working mechanics are even shown to a certain degree. I can tell that much time and passion went into this piece of art. Well done!

This is awesome! I'm a writer and I'm currently working on some projects, but I do plan on writing a short series about mechanized warfare. If you're interested, I'd love to talk to you about the concept. Though I do live in the states and I've been an avid comic book fan since I was a kid, I've become really interested in the style that the Japanese use in manga. I've been trying to mix my love of American comics and Japanese manga in my writing, so far it's going well.

Again, love your style. If you'd be interested, let me know by shooting me a message on here.

Begitu detail!!

Gimana sih cara lo bikin gambar sedetil itu!? Sulit dipercaya, tahu nggak? :D
Hydro1337 Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2007
Um. Awesome! Really good design and detailing, but I have some questions. Ok, why is the gun's stock so huge? (Battery, right?) It seems like it would be too uncomfortable to use like a normal assault rifle. Also, 120mm machine guns? That seems too high a caliber for those size arm/shoulder guns. There would be far too little ammo room and barrel length. As a suggestion, give it a close combat knife, maybe on the left thigh. Thanks for reading my rantings. Hope to see more mech awesomeness.
MeganeRid Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, after some thinking, 120mm does seem too high caliber, would be uncomfortable to shoot Xd
The rifle won't produce much recoil, so its stock shouldn't need to be put on the shoulder of the mech to absorb it, but yeah it's a bit too long ^^
