How to draw mechs 1 -legs and feet by shinsengumi77 How to draw mechs 1 -legs and feet by shinsengumi77
Started to doodle in between planning some things and drawing manga pages.

I like mechs. They're badass, and in fiction can become the ultimate combat machines, construction equipment, and recreational vehicles. ;P
So, if you want to draw mechs but have trouble knowing where to start, start with the legs and feet -build them from the ground up! :D

There are many different things you can do with mechs...the sky's the limit. I love armored-core style, so my stuff always features "customized" interchangeable part-based mechs. (interestingly for an AC fan, I dislike tank-tread legs...)

Sorry for the bad quality -sketch was a bit light so I had to turn the contrast way up for the scan. :nuu:

Anyways, hope u like and happy building! :dummy:

Imma be honest, i am also an armored core fan. And they only use those tank treads have is very heavy mechs @~@ they are no fun to use if you want a speedy one.

Yeah I never use tank treads, since I like being more mobile. :D

Yeah! I've used them before, i normally used them while fighting other heavy armored cores, or if i spent most of the mission standing around defending something XD i just threw some big ol' cannons onto it and they kindo destroyed anything in their path >.>; but like i said this method only worked on other heavy cores. As my brother showed me that fast cores could easily dodge any of those cannons eue' i could never beat him with that robot.

That's pretty cool bro. But yea I gotta say, I'm not 2 found with tread legs as same as u. Bcuz there freaking slow as hell man, and u don't have enough movability 2 move a lot and dodge against enemies as well. My fav legs r just 2-legged Mech's. And that 1 part when u said, "The sky's the limit", it reminded me of a video off from youtube of a animated short cartoon show of a  kid wanted 2 wish 4 anything and a (gay looking girl like guy) just popped in the show like a magical gay like style (bcuz the whole short video is all comedy, trust me its funny as hell) and the kid wanted a Xbox and the funny thing the gay like girl guy says exactly, "Nigga your crazy, I can't afford an Xbox", and the kid says, "Oh....well, your stupid", then the gay like girl guy says, "Yea". And it was funny I gotta say, my bro showed it 2 me a while back. He makes funny cartoon vids I gotta say. LOL XD

But in anycase bro, u did pretty good I say. Great work on showing us on how drawing it basically. :D

Thanks! :D  

Yeah I don't like them for that reason either...whenever I used tanks in the old games I could actually survive, but these days in AC games tanks get destroyed by quicker lightweight mechs too easily! :nuu:

I'll do some more mech-themed "how to draw" pieces. :D

That vid sounds really weird, but funny. ^^; lol

Np bro.

Yea I agree, when I played AC2 back on the PS2 back then, those tread legs where really tough and strong as hell, but now they weakened it eve more, now that's just stupid. And yea they do die easily and die faster these days, bcuz people and gaming company's even say that they want games these days 2b finish faster like Supreme Commander 2 (or SC2) is a lot faster gameplay than SC1 and Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance (or SC:FA), and same goes for Call of Duty these days, cause back then, the old COD games lasted like 20-28 mins bcuz of how long the time was on the game and killing the players was tough 2 kill them. And now its easier 4 the players 2 die in the new COD game series bcuz they wanted 2 make games these days fast-paste. Like getting the game done, but as such like the Battlefield (or BF) series, they last like a HOUR or so, bcuz that's how and DICE wanted it 2b bcuz of how the warfare is. And I like that of how longer BF is than COD is. Bcuz 2 me, I prefer longer games like SC1 or SC:FA.

Yea, I sure can wait 4 them 2c how u drew them. :D

OH YES! Yes indeed. Its very weird and it defiantly is funny. I'm serious. I laughed my ass off as soon as I saw the last part of what the gay girl like guy said that. That was funny and I laughed hard as hell. XDDD LOLOLOL

Sorry for the late reply! ^^;

Yeah every time I try to use a heavy tank AC in the new games I get destroyed because everyone can fly circles around me.  But I like the lighter-weight stuff more anyways. D
New games can be beaten in like one day's ridiculous!  Even RPG's feel short these days. :nuu:    
If I'm spending like 30-50 bucks on one game, I want it to either be long or have great replay value.  Otherwise what's the point of getting it?

Axonn5 Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013
Oh its ok bro. If u have something that's important then just txting me back, that's ok. It doesn't matter. But 2b honest and serious, heh, I really actually 4got I sent u a msg on ure picture. ^^;

Yea I agree with u, the same here exactly. And yea, u can b seriously beaten really fast these days.

Well yes and no, RPG's do feel fast in a way, but such as like I got Tale's of Xillia: Collector's Edition just last week, the game is long as hell man. I'm serious. And people even said that ToX is the longest Tale's series ever out there. But since there Tale's of Xillia 2 (ToX2), that's even more longer people said, and they said its about 2 and a half times longer than the 1st ToX game. And I just beaten the ToX chapter 1 out of 3 chapter's TOTAL, and the 1st chapter took me EXACTLY 13 hrs out of the 4 and its long as hell. I'm being serious man, I played it non-stopped and the 1st chapter took me only 13 hrs and a few mins 2b exact. But like I was saying, there r some RPG's out there these days and they can b long and not long. And I gotta say, ToX is pretty awesome. The story of it is amazing and I like it. Great story 2 it. But what sucks is that I KNOW EXACTLY of how the 1st ToX ends, bcuz I watched the short Anime clips on it on youtube and I was like, "OH FUCK ME MAN!! LOL HAHAHA OH GOD!!! I JUST RUINED IT 4 ME!! GOD DAMMIT!!! THAT'S BS!" I was just SSOOO pissed bcuz ToX the 1st game continues off through the 2nd game of ToX. And that sucks of how it ended bcuz it makes me wanna PLAY SO BADLY and watch all the short Anime clips of ToX2.

But yea, I c ure point there. :D
