Heavy Construction Suit by MikeDoscher Heavy Construction Suit by MikeDoscher
This is a half-page illustration for my book project. This will be in one of the six of so spreads I'll be mocking up, so a version with the layout/text of the book should be forthcoming.

While this isn't a spacecraft, it'll be complimenting some exposition about the equipment and challenges of getting things done in trans-saturnine space.

Love the clumsy, but still functional look!

Very nice, your style is easy to recognise, heavy and industrial.
Wish I can build something like that eventually. Haven't really gotten into robots yet.

Thank you. As far as robots go, you may find that many of the elements you need for an interesting legged unit are already present in the elements that make up a construction or armored vehicle. I'm continually amazed at the functional beauty and complexity of things like multifunction arms for backhoes, and how easily their motifs can be repurposed.

You're a very good modeler, you know.

Thanks! I've been thinking about such components myself, I think I'll get some models that I can look at in detail.
Thanks again for your positive comment, I respect your opinion!
