I think the similarity to the Half-Life monsters is a bit too obvious. But I like it nevertheless.
I think the legs are a bit too thick (or similar) in comparison to the corpse.
If the top, let's call them "batteries", look more tech than organic, the legs from front to back should be more in line, If you know what I mean - the back leg should be moved slightly down for the sake of the perspective.

Oh no...another great entry I've missed ...sorry that I've not visited your link until this late stage.


I really like your sketches and thought the earlier action colour WIP with the five monsters attacking was amazing ...really dynamic and great depth.

Sometimes you can get bogged down with details (my entry has suffered from this) and this image has just enough to give the viewer all the information needed and retain life and energy.

Saying that, the latest WIP's are looking really cool and should help emphasise the machineflesh concept.

Great work...keep going and goog luck

awesome work in so little time, it's a pity this wasn't started earlier for the contest.. but i look forward to seeing it finished regardless! =) Personally i prefer the earlier version(s) of them guys, with a more organic (shaped) alien look as opposed to the more tank-like revisions.. but you're the artist. Either way i'm sure it will turn out great.. very nice work go go go!

Thumbs down

Looks very interesting. Reminds me of a combination between starship troopers bugs and the matrix sentinels. Looks amazing!
