Default Mech[A]rtworks need some fixes & reviews

I always love Japanese style of Robot (or we can called it Mecha) so much.
I've been doing a collection of various manga/anime about it 'till now.

So, here's the fan art about Mecha and 'they' need some fix or reviews from everyone that cares about robot like Josh Nissi from GW.
I also would like to know from you guys, are Japanese Mechas stand a chance if they compare to Transformers in artistic way?

Thanks for viewing and also thanks in advance for reviews and fixes...

Yeah! Awesome work.

I think your attention to detail is amazing and the form of the mechoids are incredible. I like the redering style you have used and the different angles and shots look great.

...Transformers vs Mechs in an artistic sense? Hmmm, I prefer the Japanese Mechs over the transformers to be honest. I never liked the Transformers as a kid really, I think I missed the boat on that one, but I have always liked Japanese anime... like Patlabor and Ghost in the Shell... plus the game Front Mission 3 was awesome.

Default Nice work :)

just read you post you have very good work. i love mecha anime to . i think transformers are more open like have more wires and mechanical parts hanging about whereas mecha is very elagant and nice to look at :P i only wish i could draw as good as you . if you could give me some advice on things like initiall sketching or poses anything really just dont know where to start. Oh and as for a fix i only noticed one thing on the first drawing you could make the nozel from the barrel shorrter or none at all. in my opinion that would look better. anyways this is my first comment ever too feel privilaged :P
good luck jack.

Great work!

My Crit:
Great "Impressionistic" brushwork. (By the way, what program/ brush did you use to do the top one?)
The lighing of the top one is very strong, very complimentary to the forms being shown. The contrast on the bottom most one (in color) on the other hand, I find to be a bit harsh (could use more tonal variation in the smoke and across the body of the mech.)
Overall, I think you have some serious painting skills. However I would pay more attention to form language in the design of your mechs (how knees relate to shoulders, the head relates to the whole body, etc...) In other words, I find repetition of forms in the design of machines to be very pleasing, creating a very cohesive "designed" look.
Keep up the amazing work though! I wish i could paint like you...

Cheers, Ryan
