Hey, long time no "seen", probably busy with LW's? Any ways, it look funny ( not in a bad way, in a comical way) Im not sure though, but wouldn't you also want to put a big "toe" in the front of the foot like the back. Because thats were all the weight is ( I think) Other than that, I like it. But I think you need a better texture. Keep going :)

imo the leg is too tiny...

Its too simple, but it looks pretty good. I agree that the legs are too small. I believe the weight of the body would cause him to tip over with those chicken legs :p .

well, it's obvious the legs got the blunt of your work on that mech :D they are cool :!!!: I find the cockpit lacking in details tho :ugh: I think what RodrigoRosa and Bunglo said sound right, the legs should be bigger/tougher and either a toe up front for it to be able to stand up due to the weight being in the front, or place the legs more along the middle, or add a compartment behind the legs to serve as a counter weight.. i'm rambling.. :drool: Looking forward to an update :!!!:

thx for the comments so far :D .
I do plan of shifting the legs forward abit more, and i guess making the wider wouldn't bee to bad. As for leg details i do plan (somtime) on finishing the hydrolic hozes for every cylender in the legs. Also eventually i plan on covering the legs with armour plating.
As for the body, well so far i've spent about 40mins on it lol. I plan on adding guns, lights, maby some kinda arms, dunno yet. But there will be alot more details added to the entire mech.
Keep the comments comming, will post the next update asap.

ok, i've fixed the legs, made them thicker and better posisioned for balancing. I've also added a forward gun turret, and that's about it.

isn't that the robot out of robocop?

LOL like i said, the idea isn';t the most original but whatever.
small update: swiched over to brazil GI, and added some more guns :p .

Looking good. Maybe (when your modeling more of the cockpit/top) you could add a rocket holder to the side, and it slides out or something. I dunno, im just trying to give you some ideas.

it still looks a bit too rear heavy for me and will just fall over ¬¬
otherwise its going good, keep it up :)

ok, another update. Made some lights, did some of the trim, and added a step just under the door to help entry.:)

Personally I don't know about the door.. to me a mech entrance sounds more like "hatch" than "door", especially if it were to be a fighting mech... I imagine bracing a door to resist explosions and such harsh conditions would be much harder than a hatch.. that and it looks weird. :roll: The guns are nice, but I think you should work on the cockpit a bit. Anyhow those are only opinions.. keep working! :)
