EDIT: Heads up! More of my work on Pages 2, 3, 5, 6, 7,8 ,9, 11, 13, 16*, 18, 22, 24, 34, 37, 56, 62, 80, 89, 93, 102, 109, 121, 126, 138, 150, 155 and 160! Others have work throughout!
*All pages have 10 images aside from the current page I'm working on and 16, which was a celebratory post for my 100th edited image and only has that image.
We don't have good moderator support yet, sooo:
Some Basic Rules:
1. Only post modified concept art here.
2. When you start posting images to a thread, keep them contained in as few posts as possible. You can fit up to 10 images in a post. This will help keep things clean and make it easy to find specific users within the thread.
3. I obviously can't enforce these, but in the spirit of community I think it would be nice to have your cooperation. Thank you!
So this morning I concluded I needed a new project and so I decided to play with the concept art that's been posted so far. What I've done is replace the paint schemes with those of completely different units. I'm planning on doing a whole slew of these for fun, and thought you folks on the forum might be interested.
This first one is an Atlas from the 1st Marik Militia:
See if you can spot the Ayn Rand joke.
The second one is a Jenner from the 36th Lyran Guards:
The red writing on the left side reads "Wie ein Floh, aber Oh-**!"
Anyway, hope you folks like these. The real credit goes to the original artist, adobe's Photoshop program, and the myriad resources on the internet.
EDIT: Last one for today. It's a hunchback dolled up as part of MagGregor's Armored Scouts.
EDIT: This is the Ghost Regiment Atlas that was requested earlier. It's more generic than anything, but it's got some markings from the 6th Ghost. The Kanji on the left arm reads "Oak Tree". The markings above the eyes are a nod to the Atlas in the 2009 trailer.
EDIT: In response to another recent request for a more camouflaged 'Mech I've selected the now-defunct Chesterton Reserves as my next subject. Much like the MacGregor's Armored Scouts, this unit was destroyed/disbanded after the 4th Succession war, though elements continue to serve in Liao forces under different units.
EDIT: This next one is a generic Hunchback of the Atrean Dragoons, based off the paint scheme in the old Cammo Specs manual from '88.
EDIT: Here's the Northwind Highlanders (1st Kearny) Hunchback. PLAID.TAKES.SO.LONG. Hope you guys like.
EDIT: Ok, this next one I did without many references. This Gray Death Legion Atlas is based off a two-tone gray-on-gray cammo, and I decided to really try to bring out the Atlas' "death's head". on this. Thankfully, it does not seem that the Gray Death's Legion uses plaid on it's 'Mechs.
EDIT: Last one for tonight. Atlas from the 15th Arcturan Guard. I tried to have a little fun with this. I wouldn't normally do this unit, because of how plain most of their paint scheme is, but as it was requested I made an exception. The text on the lower torso reads "Lyrans & Tigers & Mechs, Oh my!"
EDIT: For today, we return to the Lyran Commonwealth. I present to you all a Jenner of the 10th Skye Rangers (Black Watch). The writing across the front (partially obstructed) reads "Snake Eater", a nod to what the Pilot intends to do with the Draconis Combine. (I actually whipped up this plaid myself today, it's based off the one found in the 1988 Camo Specs book).
EDIT: More of my work on Pages 2, 3, 5, 6, 7,8 ,9, 11, 13, 16, 18, 22, 24, 34, 37, 56, 62, 80, 89, 93, 102, 109, 121, 126, 138, 150, 155 and 160! Others have work throughout!
