Gull striker by NCH85 Gull striker by NCH85
this is my Orginal bot/mecha design....

I did for my desktop wallpaper, and I hope i get the correct place, cause wallpaper has no Misc theme...so..mech=sci fi, I hope so...

Drawing, Primary CG color, and some effects are done by me, de final render and final effects are done by another friend of mine.

BG credits are given to Win 2K wallpaper.

Good lord, that's one bad-ass mech. With the intricate details, marks and scuffs (which give it that "bad-ass war veteran" look), wonderful background, and overall design, this is something I'd love to have as a wallpaper. (I'd like to use it, with your permission of course.)

:+fav: all the way here.

definetly nice, i dig the bullet hit effect on the parts (if they are so) and all that "old machine" things.

i honestly have no patience at all to make stuff like this.

Did you use a tablet for coloring it?

Absolutely incredible. If people waych me enough on here, they will learn I have an unhealthy obsession for mecha. Meh.

On some forums I use, a guy is creating various space warships for a short film he is creating. Why not create a basic story for this and flesh it out with some other artworks of various other mecha, ships and maybe even bases/cities in your own little world.
Maybe explain what the abilities of it are in your head, and I would be more than happy to try my hand at writing a fan-fiction based on it. Teachers say I can write. I tell them I can't. Meh.

well...thanks for the comments...
i really have not much a decent pool of mecha pics, most look crappy..ahaha..

but for this mecha ability..hmm lets see...

there are 2 modes or more prefered, variations of it, land and aero mode. in land, the massive back pack is detached from the mecha, the massive chain gun manupliators are change to slimmiar humanoid arms and fingers and it holds a machine gun, or watever weapon dim its rank.

for the aero mode, its primary role is for fortress defence, cause it cant really fly very fast, and it needs to have a nearby base or airship for it to dock and refuel itself. it has quite a few weapons in its compartments.

primary weapons are the 2 massive minigun manupliators, newer variations use pulse lasers instead, which is more safer due to the shells flying into its engine intake vents. apart from guns in its arm, it has beam sabres equiped on its feet, used for swooping low, deploying its beam sabres and slicing whatever is underneath it as it fly past.

its secondary weapon is a compact ion cannon in its mouth, use mainly to breach ships hulls, a thrio of this firing simultineously on a airship's fortified armor can render a huge hole in it, which enable it to enter the ship and attack the inside.

a additional weapon is the homming beam array pack located on its wings, the array has 17 micro beam lens on each side which can fire homming beam simultaneously, each beam homes to each target, targeted by the pilot. of course i know light cant bend, but homming beams is such a awesome weapon in the scifi world... other modified variation uses a cluster missile rack instead.

thats the main abilities of the Gull Striker, usually used as a heavy airial defender or blockade unit.

I like the sounds of it. Only thing that confuses me is why it would exchange miniguns for a rifle on the ground. With the huge aerial pack and amounts of fuel now unneccasary it would seem a good idea to load it down with various heavy weapons or at least aditonal ammunition. Perhaps putting one heavy weapons among several rifle-toting units, such as a heavy weapons team in most military squads throughout history (the BAR among a squad of GI's and the MG-34 or 42 with a 9 man squad of Germans, both examples from WW2).

Your mecha, your choice. Good design though. Its heavy weapons defense role reminds me of the old Excalibur from Robotech, though that one's design was horrible IMO.

Any story ideas at all? From how well you can describe its roles in both aerial and ground combat I assume you have at least some idea of a setting. A war perhaps? Huge airships that serve like modern day aircraft carriers and flying mecha have rendered all other airships nearly useless. What about you?

NCH85 Featured By Owner May 12, 2004  Hobbyist Artist
technically, the ground variation and the aerial variation only have similiar body and head structure,xcept for its arms and legs. the ground version can be airdroped by a much more simpliar and smaller backpack, without the homming beams, much like a paratrooper, once it hits the ground, the pack will be detached, those 2 long things sticking out beside its head is the detatching equipment.

about story line or the universe, i was more focus on the anime last exile, have u seen that? its a kick ass anime of massive airships and aerial battles..very nice. well...really, it was juz a drawing of a mech..haha, no intentions of making anything link to this currently...

but if u like, u can feel free to use the design descrtiption of it in ur stories.

Athran Featured By Owner May 12, 2004
Thanks, sometimes I see things and it just gives me an idea.

Haven't seen Last Exile though I really want to. Avid Otaku here! Incidentally, three of my 5 favorite anime are mecha or sort-of mecha based. Neon Genesis Evangelion, RahXephon and Gundam SEED (it ousted the compilation of all other Gundam series that held its spot. very good quality and aweomse mecha designs). Have you seen any of those three?

Btw, I'm gonna' devwatch you in a minute here. :D

yup, saw this 3 mecha shows, but i am not really a fan of the gundam seed series, I am more of the orginal series, or the one year war and the universal centuary series. favs are like gundam war in the pocket, gundam stardust memories, and gundam 8th ms team, if u havent watch this 3 b4...u are missing out on a very good deep plot better than any new universe stories like gundam seed or wing

I have seen all of MS Gundam, 8th MS Team, Gundam Wing, 0080: War in the Pocket, 0083: Stardust Memories, Endless Waltz movie, Gundam Wing, Char's Counterattack, G Gundam and now part of Gundam SEED. I may have missed one or two. I like the AU series and the original UC series. My least favorite of the lsit are MS Gundam and 0080.

I'm gonna' edit my journal entry to mention something about this little project. I plan on taking multiple paths because I can't decide on one that would work. I've had a small mecha idea floating in my head for a little while now and this seems like a good chance to put it on paper. Of course, you will be mentioend and given credit for the Gull Striker, its abilities and a link to it. It is truly wonderful.
