Front Mission: HEAT by ukitakumuki Front Mission: HEAT 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.

Image info:

I took plenty of inspiration from the Michael Mann film of the same title for this image. :) It's not quite a robbery, but its always been a fantasy of mine to see mecha in a somewhat similar situation.

I won't really give away the story, but here is basically an invading militant group performing a blitzkrieg strike on a city. The 2 green terrorist Wanzers are creating a distraction with local law enforcement units as the main force heli-drops onto the highways of the city; using the route to hasten their advance to the city center (where they will eventually do more damage) and getting as many civillians involved as possible, thereby affecting the police's ability to respond with deadly force. Nastyy.

-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. ;)
