Very nice vibe this guy has. Kinda has an old school feel in that it looks like a dash Cruise Chaser Blassty mixed with the more new school ZOE aesthetics (Blassty did the feet-less fin legs thing way before Shinkawa did it). I dig.
Understandable, Cruise Chaser Blassty is pretty old school 80s fare and somewhat more obscure at that. It was a damn cool collection of designs though. I didn't assume what you did was inspired by it, rather it just evoked a dash of that older sensibility which is always a cool thing to have
very cool work on this, man, fills the motif of Icarus very well; just thought of this, though: how do you think you would render a mech like Escaflowne, but with the designs of a griffin instead of a dragon, and a bit more hi-tech than the Guymelev, but still keeping elements of it in there as well? that, would be awesome to see, I think (I might even have the beginnings of a data file on such a thing)
