You know what, I think I've got what is off-putting about the artwork. The Dragon has a lot of weird angles for its armor, so it seems almost as if the proportions are wrong (but they aren't). Don't worry, FlyingDebris, I'll learn to love your take on it!



Its a still image of a Mech in motion - combat - there are no odd angles.
Its a mean looking ******* of a Mech - love it!

Hey guys, you don't have to suck up to him or any of the staff, you know. If there's something about the design that feels wrong to you, I'm sure he'll accept some fair criticism.

Looking at it more, it seems very Dragon-ish, but I notice that the proportions may look off for its torso because the shoulders are more compact. The result is that the torso seems to be longer and sticks out more than the original art.

Or maybe it really just does stick out more. I need sleep.

Looks great. It s stance makes it seem shorter. If you look at the legs, one is bent quite a bit due to an elevation change and the torso is angled in an opposing way to help offset what would be ****-eyed look. If it stood straight up the full 60T would be impressive for sure.

Next Pic. can we get a reference item in screen for size comparison please.

I do have to ask though, what are the two little danglies in the crotch region?

Sort of look like anti-infantry weapons, among other things.

Is this the first (semi-)confirmation of faction-specific 'mechs?

I like the "grill" on the front of the torso, and the little detail flourishes.

Really nice choice devs. Good mech, but can I ask something? Dragon was a successor of a Shadow Hawk for Draconis Combine. Does this mean we won't have Shadow Hawk in the game? <_<

I'm sure you can answer this to me 100%. Is, or isn't Shadow Hawk going to be in the game (I don't care if you will tell it as an encrypted message, puzzle, or something, just please, tell something). :rolleyes:

I think this may be my favorite of the four announced mechs. I can't believe I'm picking something over the Jenner.

I think I like the concept sketches better than the full color concept art.

Using this powerful, maneuverable mech, the Draconis Combine will crush it's dishonorable foes with one fell sweep.

We will bring justice to the Inner Sphere, bringing about a new era of culture and peace though our enlightenment. Those who oppose us will be massacred and their cities burned, their memories and achievements-few as they are- excised from humanity.
