Mech Warrior - Marauder by Shimmering-Sword

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.

Pandas love Metal?  How do I know this?  Because they all wear Corpse Paint! Duh!
BJ1 Blackjack WIP by BishopSteiner
BJ1 Blackjack WIP
Quick sketch while in the hospital waiting room to keep occupied.  Action shot based off of Duane Loose's Blackjack design from the TRO 3025.  Will clean it up as I get a chance.
So, kind of been out of the loop.  In the last week, I sliced one of my fingers to the bone in a fishing accident, and 2 nights ago, added a brown recluse spider bite to my foot.  Good times.
THG-13Ku Thug by BishopSteiner
THG-13Ku Thug
an update built on Arc Royal to the THG-13 Thug to repurpose more closely to it's original mission, as a nearly indestructible zombie mech. While the Dragoons sourced Light Fusion Engine isn't quite as durable as the original Standard Reactor, it's massively tougher than the XL unit that had been in it.  It's weaponry are modern upgrades of it's original armament, with Heavy PPCs in each arm, and Streak 6 Racks in each side torso, cooled by 16 DHS.  Accuracy is enhanced with a C3 Slave mounted in it's head.  Not as cool running as the original model, but in the modern battlefield a heavier offense is crucial to success. 
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.

Hi Bishop! It's Marack Drock from MWO! Saw you here and now I am wondering why I didn't make a DeviantArt Account before just to drool while looking at your Gargoyle Prime. Amazing work!

I came here after reading your comment on Justin Nelsons Primitive Rifleman. I checked your galery. To be honest, i like your rather rough style. Would almost be a loss if it´s smoothes up. Also, which i didn´t want to mention on LKY13´s page, are you familiar with Shimmering-sword´s Rifleman?
BishopSteiner Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh yeah, I know Shim OK, from the MWO forums and here.  I rather like his stuff, my only "knock" is he tends to lean, IMO a little too close to the Unseen.   I'm always trying to find a way to preserve the spirit, but make them usable again.  Also, thanks for the kind words.

Yes, but that one picture of the Rifleman is simply awesome. It has detail and live no other depiction i have ever seen can display.
Also, it adresses the fact that there are two different weapons in each arm. And the big cockpit makes it believeable for anti-air due to excellent oversight for the pilot.
The Unseen-problem is ugly, i agree with that. Personally, i think a full recreation of the first mechs should be done, but many cling to the unseen even now.
BishopSteiner Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yup.  I'm all for redesigns that pay homage to the originals, but not married to the Unseen like many, despite having come up with them.
