Spider Tank by MeganeRid Spider Tank by MeganeRid
Although technically it only has 6 legs =p

Anyway, Type TS82 walker/spider tank, firing its 12.7mm gatling gun while preparing to fire its main cannon.
Things are getting pretty hot there o:

Was planning to just shade this, but I got carried away and colored it anyway lol.

Enjoy! :)

Lineart done in A4 paper, colored with photoshop

How tall is it? How fast can it go, what it's weight, what is it's maneuverability? I love the idea of it.

This seems to be inspired partially by Ghost in the Shell's [orignal movie] R3000 spider mech

you know that the 12.7 mm is literally the same thing as a .50 cal right. Are you using the metric system because your European? No offence intende.

This is a critique by a beginning artist.. Although this is an amazing concept, I think it lacks the full range in values or possibly color palette. I think having a contrasting background will make it pop. But that's just me. The concept sketch is amazing I love this though.

Man, I wish there would be more mechs out there that had more than 2 legs. Not only is it a nice alternative, it makes a lot of sense from a stability perspective.

Awesome drawing, really. This is the shining example of cool for 6-legged mechs.

I just can't shake the feeling I've seen this (or elements of it) elsewhere....

Anyway, awesome work. Great scene going on.
The turret could look cooler though... Just slap an oscillating turret there and... Then again... I don't want my screen to explode from the awesomeness that would result...

horribly awesome that is.

ps: you can count its front arms as legs. as such this tank does not count as insect like but, as the title says, spider like

Let me guess. You were inspired by "Ghost in the shell"?
