Wouldn't that be more applicable to someone who is a samurai or other type of sword wielder?

mecha designs mostly derive from samurai Armour designs.

a example would be the V fin witch was a derivative of the maedate on the kubuto helmets worn by samourai.

Unless the mech is wielding a sword, he doesn't get the title.

Those graphics are awesome! I think if you were to have a niche it'd totally be in that line of work. Kinda inspired me to try some of that in the future, maybe! Your other stuff, like the mechs, aren't as solid as the graphics are but you can tell you're still crunching them out and learning. Progress! U haz it!

I liked that Solid Snake too! It cracked me up. :)

i'm using the pencil tool in Photoshop CS5 to map out the initial design, at the end I'm going to open it in flash CS3 and add some lovely smove vector lines to make it look better
