I did this picture as an illustration for our yearly RPG convention MittKon. The theme of the year was 'Mecha'. It was used in the folder as well as on the MittKon coffe mugs(they looked very nice - I have two myself) The mecha is open at the moment, to allow the pilot to get in.

*stares* Are you in automotive/aerospace design? If you're not...you *should* be! Every line is crisp, every angle is perfect, and you've combined the metallic nature of the mecha with the soft curves of the pilot inside the mobile suit to create a novel way of design! And I love the feet...that's how they should be designed. Who needs big, clunky, metal boots? If they're softer, they can conform to any type of terrain - a la camel feet. Is this pen and ink? That's what it looks like...*belatedly remembers to do an impressive first comment dance*

:-) Daniel L. Bergkvist replies: "I absolutely agree with you and must say that your comment was much perceptive. I'm an Industial designer (general product design - not automotive, but still) I would have replied sooner if I had had the time. It is done in pen and ink. I have inked it with a Rotring 600 fountain pen with brilliant ink. Again thank you for your comment 12"

Nice picture,
After seeing the other comments and studying her face for myself, i find it to be a good a nice description of true human nature, A person will not always look like the ultimate hero no matter who or what he or she is. Below is what i read out of the picture.

She may not be smiling but i find that she still holds her posture, and looks as if used to the situation and is ready to do what she has to. The picture seems to describe the pilot doing something that she has done many times before, and as an experienced one as such, getting in and preparing herself is probably not any thing she thinks much about when it all comes around. With the look on her face her one could guess that her mind is probably els were, possibly thinking about how to handle the upcoming task in the best way, or she may be giving her brain a rest and thinking about something that has nothing to do with what's ahead, before going out. Who know, the choice is in the eye of the beholder, or the description of the artist.

For all intents and purposes, it looks more like power armor than a mecha, reminds a bit of the Landmates from Appleseed.

:-) Daniel L. Bergkvist replies: "Well, you are right in that it is a ripoff from the Appleseed landmates, but I consider them Mecha. Just small mecha."

Very dice drawing! But why doesn’t she have hands?? )

:-) Daniel L. Bergkvist replies: "The hands are protected by the armour. The small arms control the big arms, which have hands."
