sandwalker by dee-virus sandwalker by dee-virus
a bipedal walker with an open air cockpit. It's inadvisable to pilot this in any kind of sandstorm, unless you have some great goggles.

Wouldn't want to pilot this in a sandstorm due to those open joints and exposed piston rods, regardless. ;)

I love the sketchy lineart and tight colors in this design. What's your coloring method and tools, if I may ask?

haha that's a good point. i may have to look into refining this design for that problem :d

this started out as a quick pencil sketch. I cleaned up the line work after scanning it, then basically just colored under the line work.
That's the workflow in a nutshell

For the cylinders, you can try using a flexible bellows that covers the entire rod, so that it can still extend and retract while sealing out dirt. Here's an example of the bellows used on a water jet cutter to prevent backsplash from hitting the parts that move the cutting head: [link]

Hmm, you make it seem like a fairly basic process! Did making the lineart by hand (versus the computer) speed things up a bit? Thanks man!
