Warglow by Setzuo Warglow by Setzuo
Tired of preaching, we picked up our guns.
And the Earth shook beneath our feet.

"Few who speak of the battles between warsuits truly understand it... much like those who speak of war won't ever know it from a soldier's eyes. War was a frightening enough prospect before the introduction of the warsuit. Towering machines built to bring the firepower of a naval vessel onto land, to exact omnipotence and domination over entire regions with a single handful of units. These creations were adored and hated at the same time, much like any weapon of war. Their footprints crushed asunder the ruins of the former world, their gunshots rang out with a thunderous clap that would shatter windows, pop eardrums, and break bones. Their shell casings would rain down from above, lighting ablaze anything that would burn. Their defeated corpses would crash to the ground in a shambling, deafening thud, and every so often, their hearts would explode, vaporizing city blocks in a brilliant flash of nuclear fury. Truly, no weapon of war was so widely feared and respected as the warsuit, and I, for one, hope that never changes."

A good deal of my original inspiration for mecha came from the Gundam franchise, so it's bound to shine through....

It's easily the most complicated lighting scenario I've ever tried to create... I think it needs more work tho..

Yeah, a lot of my inspiration comes from Gundam and Armored Core, so I do sort of emulate that style quite a bit. And the suit is called a Defiant, Warglow is just the name of the piece.

Thanks for the compliments!

I like the story behind the illustration. Some mild crit; your illustration lacks depth and the amount of shadow, when placing a scene in such a dark environment, is not heavy enough... Keep up the good work! :D

You're right... I should do a bit more shading in the BG areas, maybe accentuate those shadows a bit more.. considering the amount of light the muzzle flash is giving off... thanks!

Holy crap, this is epic. I'm surprised no one's ever commented on this yet.

At first I thought that, based on the description, the image above was something along the lines of an exoskeletal suit similar to the ones used by Space Marines from Warhammer or SPARTANs from Halo, but then I got to looking and realized it was much bigger. I'd hate to be near that thing if it decides to take fire upon my nation...

You did a good job with this. The description is equally great. I enjoyed gazing upon the titanic figure of your mighty Warsuit, and salute it for its success in what it does; making war.

Awesome, glad to see I got that point across.
My whole mission from the start was to try and emphasize how terrifying something this big could be...
thanks!
