Front Mission: Infiltration by ukitakumuki Front Mission: Infiltration 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:

This one depicts an assault on a jungle base. A second Wanzer detachment prepares to flank a distracted line of defenders. This image uses some 3D as a base (images of models that I re-cut-and-pasted and then painted over). It also contains my favourite personal 'design additions' thrown in at the painting stage, such as the ERA-tiles on the green approaching Wanzer arms, as well as the dual pile bunkers on the Frost with its back against the rock.


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. ;)

Private: we're going to need a bigger gun to take that fortress out!

Major: That's why we have Wanzer, Private!

Private: Oh... right O3o

Even with giant Mechs, hiding behind the rock is still a viable tactic!

I do like the grittiness and realism you have added. I know the subject matter is different, but when I look at this, I see a Frank Frazetta painting. That’s a good thing! I like a lot of your work here.

Wow, that is high praise indeed. Though I don't see it myself (ha!) I shall accept graciously :) Thank you!

You did good work. I played FME and liked it, mainly because I like mechas like Gundam and such. Good work altogether
