Pepperoid Alpha by Artgerm Pepperoid Alpha by Artgerm
This is a real challenge. I don't usually draw mecha, it is something that I am not very interested in. However, having a friend like Kai (ukitakumuki), who floods his gallery with mecha, machines, vehicles and such, it makes me wanna get it a shot. After all, it is nice to start the new year with a small personal breakthru right?

This is my "virgin" mecha...haha.. so please dun be too harsh on the comments... :)

Done in Painter 9 using soft chalk pastel, 6 hrs, no reference.

EDIT: Changed the body to make Pepper sit in a more anatomy correct position. Thanks for those who pointed the problem out. :)

any chance I could buy a print of this from you ?

Or is there a chance you might offer it as a print soon? I would love a copy, I would probably buy 2. infact if you had one the size of my bed room wall I would so go for that, this is my all time favorite picture!!!

Please let me know, thank you.

Hehe, I was looking through your gallery, and then I saw this after all the Pepper pictures and I had to laugh. I thought it was rather humorous!

Great stuff... I love how even with all the armor and technology the imagination can muster, she still needs a mecha-purse. Pure Gold.

Cool! You've done it just right (well, I don't know how to draw mecha either). ^^;
Maybe just a lil contrast will do.
Vladm Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2005
Amazing, simply...amazing. I love painter, everything that comes from it looks so darn beautful, awsome job :)
angrymikko Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
How did you manage to keep the perspective of the limbs so perfect? The technical look of this makes me really envy you (once again). I also like the beautiful details printed on the mecha and that case it's holding. Just saying that I like it again sorry for my non-constructive comments.

IOPNR Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2005
Fucking awesome. I love the gun, so retro Sci-Fi. The details on the briefcase/bag are very hip as well. Overall a very cool image.

Shadow: awsome pic but i gotta ask you how do ya do the bluish mist stuff to show the depth of the back arm and leg
Mudkin Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2005
It's been said before, but the 'Barbarella,' 'Buck Rogers,' 60's pop sci-fi feel of this picture really works well! There's also a sense of art nouveau here too, though I can't quite say what makes me think that, maybe the shape of the shoulders of the armor, or the pilots helmet, it all looks very plant like from the waist up, no, let me rephrase that, maybe nut like, perhaps I should simply say floral . . . Yeah . . . Floral. Anyhow! It's a wonderful pic!

It's got a soft, storybook illustration feel. Really unique and lovely. :D The little details you put in are awesome too, like the heart "decal" on the "windscreen"! :lol: And I think the briefcase design would make a great T-shirt design too. :nod:
