J12-a LDD
First new design of 2012
About this creation





















































This was just some random mecha doodling to try out some techniques I'm planning for future designs.

As you will probably have worked out there are actually 3 distinctly different versions here, but for sake of argument I'm calling them all j12-a since the only significant changes are the shoulder details, weapon heads and the feet in the mostly red version.

Some elements are actually taken from CHIMP and Dark Knight, while others are brand new.

I'm not happy how the feet turned out, I need more practice, I kinda like the pointy look, but it fits better with the knight designs than a straight mecha.

I'm also thinking now if I'm keeping those bulky shoulders (which I actually think are pretty cool for a random design choice that wasn't planned) I really need to make a few changes to the overall scale, since they are very big, and the placing of the head, which would be seriously restricted in looking left or right, in fact the mecha would definitely be limited to targets dead ahead.

The weapons are based on ones I've used in the ShadowAgent designs, the gun and shoulder rockets are new (for me) to this design.

The head however is something I'm 50:50 on. I wanted something different that had a little more personality than my usual cyclops designs. But at the same time I'm not sure the chin works, maybe if there is a follow up to this model I'll maybe rethink the head.

so, check list of possible changes:

1. head - might make something a little bigger with a better chin design
2. feet - need to have a toe bend if I'm making them that long I think, maybe add a heel spur.
3. chest/head positioning - need to be moved forward and bulked up a bit to compensate for the huge shoulders
4. limb length - may double the length of the legs and arms, should off-set the bulkier chest and shoulders better.
5. weapons - if I'm going to the trouble of effectively redesigning the thing I may as well give it some more fire power.

Quoting ariklego ...The Director! well, the shoulders are forty-seven sizes too large, the neck's a bit long, and the spikes on the toes look kinda goofy, but I love this thing. particularly the weapons, and even more specific than that the sniper rifle thing. 5/5
The neck isn't long, it's just horribly exposed. I need to build up the armour around it to compensate. The shoulders are restricting, I probably need to figure out a better way of mounting them.

Quoting Rabid Goldfish The shoulders look unusual, but I think they fit it well. Topnotch one this time, Andros. Love the unusual design. ^Blub^
I like the distinctive shape of the shoulders, but I do see why people reckon they are out of proportion. I'm thinking of ways I can address that if there is a J12-b

Quoting George Staples As per said, the shoulders are a bit big, but I really like the version with rockets. good overall design, and I like the mounting for the weapons. (4/5)
thanks, Thought I'd give those massive shoulders a function, hence the missiles.

Five stars! I always struggle that much in LDD, getting an angle in a part. Your creation is but angles. :-)
