DCO.MMO.HIVE. heavy.trooper by Chuckdee DCO.MMO.HIVE. heavy.trooper by Chuckdee
here's another design for the DCO MMO... this one also belongs to HIVE, and this is their BIG soldier... I kinda imagine a poor bastard being genetically enhanced and permanently grafted onto the armor... so it's not removable... he's in there 'till he/she dies in battle... kinda like Bees.

This one I collaborated with Ed Nunez (check him out here on Deviant)... the way we'd usually work would be for me to do the roughs, then Ed would define my mess and clean it up and add his flair, then I'd go back in at the end for the 'spit-polish'... with quite a few of these, it's hard to tell where my drawing ends, and Ed's starts. Ed and I have known each other since high-school, so we already have a symbiotic thing going on! :)

I was also really happy with the color design of this one... I think JJ Kirby (also a fellow deviant) might have come up with that one.

I have marveled at some of things that did make it and I always wondered "Who did all this?" I'm glad I found out

Would call that a perk to being an evil minion, but then on your first day out in it you have to go against Superman or Wonder Woman.

Oh sure, maybe you might luck out and get Batman. but if you're stupid enough to think you "lucked out" then they never should have put you in the mech suit in the first place...

This is incredible. I'm absolutely in love with this design.
I love bees and wasps, and all things mecha, so this drives me nuts.

If only DCUO's character modelers had been good enough to do your designs justice. Everyone of the concept pieces you've shown from the game made me go "Why couldn't it have looked like THIS?"

that is TOTALLY a nod to Masamune Shirow's 'landmates', so I can't take the credit for that! :)

I realy love the tiny arms. This part looks definitely like insectoid. Well, the wings, the helmet and antenna looks insectoid also.

Never faught against those on DCO MMO. But I wish I had. All your works for DCO looking nice. I love your art.

can't really take too much credit for that... the idea is based on insects mind you, BUT the master of this kind of design is Masamune Shirow. :)

Jeez, what a great proportions and details. How much time did you spend for this one? because there are soooo many details and all look so great that it seems it took a month or so

this was a collaboration, so it's hard to gauge the time exactly... without distractions and messing around, this takes about a work day more or less. :)

No doubt. I guess that's probably one of the things about working in the industry that's tough: You get to make tons of cool stuff that you don't have any real rights to that may never get used :/

I probably won't wind up as a concept artist anyway, so I probably won't have to worry about it.

that's the way the cookie crumbles! :) ...but the good thing is that nothing becomes 'precious', so it really does become much more about the 'artistic journey', and not about individual pieces.
