Crawler Tank by MikeDoscher Crawler Tank by MikeDoscher
Tried out some new (for me) techniques on a sketch I did a couple months ago. I feel like I'm starting to get it, but that I'm not quite there yet.

What's your technique for making a dirt texture?

Very cool. It looks believable to me. Though, I'm wondering where the little thing gets enough power to move all those beefy armored legs... but meh, it's the FUTURE!

The dirt texture is actually a pretty simple effect- It's actually just a photo I took of some gravel that's been put on a layer set to 'overlay'. Trying to use hydraulics for the legs would be too bulky and fragile, so if I had to guess I'd say they're probably moved by muscle-like bundles of an electroactive polymer of some sort.

Very cool! I love your mecha concepts. I've been interested in "non-rolling" stuff for awhile. Are you using Painter's digital watercolor for it?

No that's actually just Photoshop 7. There's just a dirt texture put on between a layer of relatively flat color and most of the brushwork. It has some potential, but I'm not totally happy with the effect as executed.

Dual use. Not really a dedicated AAA unit, but rather a light and maneuverable vehicle that can function as a scout or close infantry support.
