Front Mission: A Moment Alone by ukitakumuki Front Mission: A Moment Alone by ukitakumuki
Hi all! It's been so long since I've been able to post work that I've done!

These concept artworks were done in late 2008 for the game Front Mission Evolved. Front Mission is a cult-classic mecha franchise by Square Enix that inspired my love for robots when I was a youngster. It was an insane privilege for IFS and myself to have been able to contribute to it.

[EDITED: higher res file + sharpened image]

Image info:

My second favourite image, this one also involves the most 3D(base model provided by Verawat.V) and photo textures. Aside from helping to conceptualise the operations hangar area, along with the entrance to the observation deck and rest of the base... I thought it was a good opportunity to try something more... symbolic? The original render and angle by V was too good to pass up the opportunity.

-Skan Srisuwan for his wonderful Wanzer redesigns.

-Verawat Verasunthorn who translated Skan's designs into 3D models, over which a number were used as 'bases' for me to paint over in these artworks to maintain accuracy and as a time saver.

-With Skan's permission, I'd taken design liberties with some of his designs, throwing in my own ideas and flavour to the mix; hopefully providing an extra layer of 'grounded-ness' or grittiness that I felt resonated with the spirit of Front Mission. ;)

When I was a child, there was a line of plastic Robotech models for sale in regular stores like K-mart. Inside the kits was a pamphlet showing all of the models that you could never find. The greatest one of all was the "Robotech Factory" model kit, and although this painting is not exactly like that, it does remind me of that amazing model kit I could never have.

A moment with the giant steel of titan. One ready to war, another ponder his fate. Only one way to be sure - SUIT UP!

i think I understand what you mean, you start the image out as 3d and draw over it to give it more atmosphere, 3d renderings can be overly clear

I'll post a before and after process shot soon.. the reason it goes under 2D is because I feel that it consists of more manual 2D work than outright reliance on 3D to achieve the final effect. But thank you for thinking its pretty realistic... so many mistakes.!
