MONK by HOON MONK by HOON
it doesnt come very often that i enjoy developing mech design. 9 out of 10, i dont find no pleasure working on robots, but something strange happened, and i just had blast on couple of these robot concepts.

initially, when you start something with small intention like GEISHA, it works out better than you can hope for and it began to evolve as you control the pixels on it.

MONK, you see here is also a part of heaven's guardians, but much more premitive compare to geisha's capability. but its simple mechanism allows the deities to mass produced this particular unit.
those warriors on the front line, fullback on your foot ball team, or the muscle for the heavenly mob.

intention was be more typical, as far as mechanism and joint structure is concerned, but i tried once again to approach the uniqueness of it, however i came to a sad conclusion that you can only be so creative with humanoid mech designs. either you can be extremely creative and make a rediculously original bots, which will most likely look funny, or have the reminiscence of robots/human figures that you are familiar with and have viewers differenciate it from whats already been done.

Concept of monk is based on Buddist sprituality, and it should suggest shaolin monk esque appearance, but the halo you see over its head suggest more of christianity. thats because when some serious shit goes down and hell come arise, you gotta put everything together that stands for "good" in this world. :D


excuse me guys, let me put away my mecha-geek glasses now.

i think i about had it with doing bots, and move on to sexy babe again. preferably sexy, naked babes.

done over 2 to 3 nights, (feels like i spent more time on this than Geisha, although, i didnt) using only PSCS.

Concept of geisha, monk, created for TSM, LIMBUS, ORIGIN (c) HOON mess studio.com

Been reading the Dune prequels. Kind of what I imagined the cymeks to be like. Maybe if one of the cogitors was in control. I really like the Dune novels, so hope you're not insulted or anything. Just so little artwork around from the Dune universe.

Wow... I don't usually pay much attention to mecha / manga, but I enjoy 3D art and... I thought this WAS a 3D render until I saw it full size!

The texture, the lights, the "weight" of the robot and the attention to detail on the non-jointed parts of the robot is absolutely mindblowing. This definately gets a :+fav: but here's just one little thing I don't like - the fog effect round the hands and foot. I can see why you did it, but I think you did it just a teeny weeny bit too much :)

Very impresave the way this and the Geishea are very different Machines, but for all taht there is an underlying comonality, as there would be as they were built by the same beings. The combination of glowing elements and adrk richly texured metal is efectave too, and the Mechanical desighn is plauseable but still origonal. Another :+fav:

As far as it goes, this mech design is very different from the Geisha mecha designs you produce. This robot character MONK is a more stout and sturdy machine than the Geisha (please correct me if I made some observation errors), whereas in the case of Geisha, it has a more Yoji Shinkama feel to it. But other than that I like its looks.

Btw, a question of curiousity: how does the concept of religion come into place? What inspires you to use such creative ideas?
