Easily my favorite Marauder piece from you. Biggest thing, and it might simply be the pòse and perspective, it's the most agile and men...

What to say?

Well, won't bore you with a ton of history.

I am an amateur artist trying to move from being a hobbyist, to a professional. I practice in many disciplines, but am a hands on artist. I'll use digital for editing, etc, but simply prefer and find greater satisfaction to graphite and ink stains on my fingers.

My specialty, is line art. My desire is to work doing B&W illustrations for RPG source books, etc. But I also do color work, cartoons, have a children's book that I am looking for a writer to help me finish, and sports cartoons that I enjoy.

My favorite game and art subjects are RIFTs from Palladium, and Battletech/Mechwarrior.

When not drawing, I can be found either SCUBA or Freediving. I am a lifelong conservationist, sustainable eater, and sustenance spear fisherman.

I live in Mexico, because it allows me to live a simple life, and pursue my desire to become a SCUBA Instructor.


Asn21 Assassin
my action take on an Assassin, going a bit more for cleaner lines than usual for me, and dynamics instead of "realism".  Assassin's have been an absolute favorite of mine ever since MW2: Mercs.
Quickdraw WIP
Having trouble deciding whether to be closer to the TRO art, or Alex's design for MWO. The original art forces a slight cartoonish feel, but the boxier head of the MWO version just doesn't feel like a Quickdraw to me 
2866 Enforcer Mod WIP
the sketch started our small and by the time it got going, was too late to redo, so when I get my computer back online, I'll blow it up and clean it up.
Panther 2nd Arkab Legion
A modified Panther, of the Second Arkab Legion of the DCMS, early in the 3rd Succession War. Due to ammo shortages, and the Legion's quick raiding style, this warrior has had his tech remove the short range missile rack from the torso, and instead mount a pair of Medium Lasers on the left arm, with an added heatsink placed where the ammo magazine once was.

This mech and his companion in a LCT-1V Locust are conducting a raid on the Independence Weaponry facilities on the Federated Suns world of Quentin. He may shortly get a very hot surprise courtesy the 2 AFFS foot soldiers preparing to fire an Inferno Missile at him.

Based on Alex Iglesias' (Flying Debris) official version for MW:O with the Locust based on Anthony Scroggins' (Shimmering Sword) official CGL Classic Battletech version.
was notified today that my "PugLife" entry was chosen as one of the 10 winners for the Pimp My Mech contest.
Today was a good day.  Didn't even have to use my AK.

Not sure if you are aware of this but it you are not, PGI stole your ideas Bishop


Very bottom is the Kaiju and Deputy Dawg
BishopSteiner Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
didn't steal.  Both items are actually base don PGIs creative property (well, CGL/Topps for the Urbanmech) which I modified, but still not my creative property, per se.  Also, not like I had a claim on the word Kaiju (and the armament is totally different), and the same is true with DD. Plus I have posted on the forums AND on Russ's titter that if they ever wanted to use the DD, I would be happy to indemnify them if possible.  I actually feel it's a pretty big honor... especially since MWO Heroes are now Battletech Canon.  I campaigned for over two years to get them to add the Urbanmech... and then another two, of largely tongue in cheek for the DD.  Never actually thought I'd get my wish though. I actualyl quite honored.  Plus the Hero Mauler will let me build my 2Z loadout when they add the tech this summer.
Well I wasn't entirely sure of the situation myself so thanks for correcting me there. I figured I'd get that to you though just in case. You never know these days, big companies steal ideas left and right. I agree though will be great to see them in game. I really enjoy that they stayed true to the hero's too yeah, like the Black Knight.

I'm not entirely sure which to buy honestly as if I did get one, I could only get one. While I have a very big love of the King Crab, I might get the Mauler or Black Knight myself. I still wish they would redo Yen-Lo-Wang though; I'm a fan of that one, and it's future pilot. Can't wait for the new tech though I am wondering how unbalanced it might get. Certain to see ALOT of UAC/20 King Crabs when it drops.

Also I noted you my Atlas IIC stuff, hope I did right by it Bishop.
BishopSteiner Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hey, I will get back to you on the notes, but been buried IRL with stuff, including getting nasty sick again, and looking for a job, need for paying work, posting stuff to sell, etc. So I'm just realyl behind on pretty much everything.

Hey Bishop, I got Kaiju to work on the Public Test Server with the new skill system, it's a beast mate. Now if only we could alter our mech hardpoints.....

ALSO, if you're ok with it, I'd like to type up the specs for your Atlas IIC, and maybe add a few variants. I've been doing a lot of custom designs or updates recently (no art of course, can't draw), I almost have enough to start my own TRO. :rofl: Let me know if you are up for and if you have any preferred ideas.
BishopSteiner Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hey, been without a computer for a while, sorry for the late reply.  That's cool to hear, love to see the Kaiju lives!  As it is, that Atlas IIC is actually done for another user, so it already has specs, but I mean, feel free to whip up what you want.  As for art, I won't say I am not interested, so much as desperately behind on a pretty large project atm.  So, can I give you a solid maybe?
Stargazzer811 Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2017
Maybe works. It's not an exact maybe myself as I only have rough Sarna net style specs. Also didn't realize about the Atlas but never the less I'll give a shoot at doing my best. Thinking a total of 5 variants counting the main. After all, such a revered mech wouldn't need a lot of versions as the Clan's would care more about the mech and what it stands for then armament. Nice to hear you got your computer back though :D
