Some of you may remember last year's X-mas Free Pixel thread. Ever since I started it, people have been kind enough to push me to make more and more pixel art mechs, especially for Clan mechs, since they were released.

Well, you can finally find all the current Inner Sphere mechs in the 2013 thread and I'm starting a 2014 thread for the Clan mechs. Hopefully, you should find the Wave 3 mechs in this thread pretty soon (I just need someone to do a silhouette chart, like Adridos did, and I'll start pixelling).

For now, here's the original 8 Clan mechs and the 5 Wave II mechs in my standard colour variations. Feel free to use them for anything you'd like, in any way, shape or form you'd like. Whether you like to use them in your mwomercs forum signature or you want to put them in a freeware Battletech RPG or use them as a motif for your billion dollar T-short company. I don't care. It's freeware, a gift to the Mechwarrior-community.

EDIT: You can find the Inner Sphere mechs here!

FAQ
Q: How do I use these?
A: How ever you want. If you want to put them in a forum sig, just copy the full size image, paste it into an MSPaint file (.png format is ideal), make a nice picture, upload it to the web and edit your forum profile to make it your signature. Don't save the image as a .jpg, it will add a lot of noise.

Q: When will you make Wave 3 mechs?
A: Soon.

Q: What about the Kodiak, the Viper and the Supernova?
A: I'm only doing the mechs we have in MWO, based on PGI's designs.

Q: Why are you wasting so much time on this?
A: I'm on a mission from God.

Q: I don't like how you pixelled a few of these mechs.
A: That's not a question. But tell me which ones and I'll see if I can improve it. I really struggled with the Timber Wolf, because that TIE-fighter cockpit is hard to do justice with so few pixels.

Not bad...guessing they are vector based in illustrator. I have made quite a few of the same idea, but at a slightly larger scale. Keep up with your graphic design stuff! :)

Happy Holidays!

Wow, this is really good work... Keep it up! Would love to see if you can make the Gargoyle look better than it does in-game (shouldn't be too hard >_>).

The Cute Fox is 30 tons, not 35. :P

Also, its model number letters are KFX, not KTF.

They're actually painted pixel by pixel in MS Paint. And I also used Grafx2 for the colouring.

Happy holidays :)

Did you miss the FAQ? I'll add the Urbie as soon as PGI makes a playable urbie for MWO :)

Thanks! Did I just watch a children's show where the protagonist gets caught between a pair of tig ol' bitties? Her huge, huge tracts of land? I don't remember that ever happening in TV shows when I was a kid.

Well, we had Ren and Stimpy back in those days too. Some of us still remember the weirdness/awesomeness that was "Log".

So I have to wait until April 1st again? Hopefully...

Maybe PGI won't make an Urbie until its done in Pixel Art. Ever think of that Alistair? lol come on... how hard is it to make a trash can Pixel Art... I promise to use it in my Sig.... you made a special one for Garth... why not a Special Urbie?

Yes you did, and I highly suggest everyone check it out its called Rocko's Modern Life. Made back in the day when Nikelodeon didn't suck balls.

Also great work on these, always wondered where people got them.

Great work, nicely done !

Now, we only need to convince PGI to use them in the game in places where they now only use text to represent the mechs.. :D

P.S.: on some mechs the knee-area seems to be a bit dark (only a bit), but this might be my monitor.
