Here is my secret santa for this year. Made it for Reo.

I initially had a lot more planned for this, but I didn't think I had the time nor the skill to pull it off successfully without some help from Pixelation which was of course not an option. In the end I opted just to make the mech.

I'll soon upload some sketches I did too, designed it before I pixeled it.

The version I gave to Reo also had 'Merry x-mas Reo' on it, but it's rather busy.

13 colours in total, and a good 15 hours I'd say, including sketches.

 Great mecha!

 flawless construct imo, and nice design.

Damn you! It's extremely amazing! I already post a comment on someone's mecha, and I must say that you are a good example of how his mecha should look! Sorry I'm not in a rank to vote you more than 7 points because you deserve it!


So does that damn database must be fixed!

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 1/3/2011 12:21

heh, yeah someone else said that too. The resemblance is unintentionnal, though. I only have a vague idea of what the Tau look like.

And thanks guys :)

Victor Rojo (Level 10 King Ghidorah) @ 12/31/2010 11:19

great sketch, great style, great work, great mech...gggg

Finoli (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/30/2010 03:07

Great work, very clean work

robotwo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/28/2010 19:54

 Reminds me a lot of a Tau Crisis Suit ^^ , even though the design is very original :)

zi-double (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 12/28/2010 17:48

I like mechs and this is very nice ... also colours contribute for nice look.

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 12/27/2010 14:12

Very convincing piece of hardware! ;)

Could have used some wear and scratches -- oh but it's a brand new Xmas present, silly of me.

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 12/26/2010 15:41

Nicely noticed! I loved that mech-like piece of Robotriot. Looked at it for inspiration quite a few times when I made this. Studied it a bit, see how he got it all to look so great.

Reo: No problem mate. Was happy I got you, actually.

Squirrel: Thanks man :D

Guggi: haha, glad you like it.

Balamoot (Level 10 Maniac) @ 12/25/2010 17:13

Shee! First I''ve seen the preview I thought it's done by robotriot. Awesomely done! 

Guggi (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/25/2010 14:23

sexy ;o omgomgomg

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Rubbish) @ 12/25/2010 03:08

good stuff, dude :3

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 12/24/2010 17:39

Thanks again Opacus! Much love!

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 12/24/2010 16:27

Thanks! Yeah man, me too. That's why I made so much work of it. I barely ever sketch out any pieces I make (I probably should), but for this I really wanted to get the mech right. I always screw up the proportions and forms when I just draw it without designing it first. You can check the sketches out here:, if you haven't already.

Thanks Gecimen :)

Mathias (Level 7 Junk) @ 12/24/2010 16:24

Awesome mech design! I have trouble with robotic forms.

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 12/24/2010 15:10

Awesome design.

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 12/24/2010 14:56

Thanks man!

Well, a Secret Santa doesn't necessarelly have to have anything to do with Christmas. You just have to make something your partner likes :)

Jalonso: Yeah you're probably right. Might add that if I have some time.

And thanks guys.

KrypToniTe (Level 5 Soldier) @ 12/24/2010 14:08

A rarely beautiful design youve made. I must say, this doesnt look/have anything at all to do with christmas. Not that I care, I love this piece. I gave it 6/6 and faved it 4 SURE... Keep it up.

Ego (Level 6 Commander) @ 12/24/2010 13:40

I love it. Makes me think of the Tau from Warhammer 40,000.

circuscommando (Level 1 Depressed) @ 12/24/2010 13:26


jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 12/24/2010 13:18

Wonderful present. Design wise maybe a floor shadow would have helped weigh it down.

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 12/24/2010 12:15

What part confuses you? Some of the outline colouring or just the design in general?

And thanks guys :)

Sneep29 (Level 4 Deputy) @ 12/24/2010 12:11

Very cool. I'm reminded of the 19XX machines that transform into more mobile air machines. Great outline coloring as well, though it confuses me at certain parts.

Demon11777 (Level 5 Captain) @ 12/24/2010 12:09

 Awesome :D!

NorthboundFox (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/24/2010 12:03

 Simply amazing! *claps*

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 12/24/2010 11:53

That is fantastic :o

Drazelic (Level 8 Partner) @ 12/24/2010 11:49

Quite impressive!
