TankHead by emersontung TankHead by emersontung
Hey all, 

Sorry for not posting in ages. Since late last year I've been experimenting a lot with ink in my sketchbook. Decided to start coloring them, starting with this one. 

If you're interested to see what I've been up to artistically for the past few months, you can check out my sketchbook on

Wow! This needs a DD!

I've seen many mechs that have tank bodies and turrets, but never has one impressed me so much. Bravo!

Thanks, man!
I would suggest going to look at real modern day or world war tanks for inspiration. You'd be surprised at all the things you can learn from looking at things that already exist vs. things other artist have done.

yeah i got plenty of tanks books laying around its just a matter of getting it down on paper, i have tried various designs and im still having problems mostly on the robot side, mostly the legs and joints. best i done so far is a tank on four legs on tracks turns the tank into a turret like tower

I like it a lot! One thing that I find disappointing is the amount of unrealistic Mechs/Walkers. This one is amazing! And, with a powerful engine, a good pump and a lot of hydraulics I'm sure someone with enough money could build such an amazing contraption. I did not see the back firing arms! Very nice touch! It reminds me of the Austrian battle-walker from Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan Series.

DUDE! I loved the Leviathan series, and I only picked it up because one of my favorite illustrators worked on it. You could say that series definitely played a part in inspiring this piece.

I love Keith Thompson's work! I love the cross-section he did of the stormwalker in that small book that he and scott published with a lot of cross sections of objects from the leviathan series universe. It think it would be crazy fun to build a stationary mock-up of the stormwalker that you could climb around in. Maybe a 1:1 scale replica of this badassment of machinery would be epic fun, too!

oh yes. I own that book <3 Forget 1:1 scale, I'll be happy with just a 1:144 of it.

OMG that's amazing! That's basically what I was thinking! I wanted to build one saluting Japan from my home city in CA for all the hardships they have gone through for the past few years.
