Front Mission: Hunting Party by ukitakumuki Front Mission: Hunting Party 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:

After their failed attack on the jungle fortress, the surviving attackers flee into the jungle, where they enter a deadly game of cat and mouse with a counter-assault force sent in to hunt them down. This piece started as a pen sketch on paper.

_____________________________________________

Credits/Additional info:

-This artwork is Copyright Square Enix and Double Helix Games.

-These images (and more) can be found on the Free-to-Download Digital Dossier here: [link]

-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. ;)

I'd heard of Front Mission before, even watched some friends play it once. But I'd forgotten all about it until I saw this piece.

Titanfall. Hmm. Hmm.

Hmm.

I'm a long time fan of your work :) This piece in particular's a favorite of mine. The thought of something so big being able to hide tactically is very cool

I love all these pieces, which is saying something considering I'm usually unwilling to suspend my disbelief whenever I see a picture of a mech. You may have just convinced me to buy my first Square Enix game!

Wow! It took me some time to notice the wanzers hiding in the front of the pic (I've found 2 of them so far). Reminds me of a scene in the film Sniper, where the heroes hide from patrols in a similar way...

Yep! An unforgettable experience!

Spending it in a cramped, leaking wanzer cockpit, listening to grumbles of your hair-trigger teammates, waiting to be attacked any second - that's what I'd call 'camping out with style' =)

Aw man, this is so cool. I just love how you design stuff and all that. I know that wanzers aren't your creation but damn, they have always been one of my favorite mechas, and the way you draw weapons, suits of armor etc, it's like stripped out of my mind. And now you do wanzer stuff.

I just love your stuff, it's really what I want to do one day and the whole aesthetics of your stuff fits my brain like a glove. Love it!

So yeah, keep submitting more awesome stuff!

Yes, this one was done with an slightly different approach than I'm used to-- I scanned a loose pen sketch into Photoshop where I digitally painted over it. Thank you!
