Royal Dukes


This mech is no mere steam punk robot. It's a dukes style mech that stands about 15 feet tall and runs on a mysterious rock that if you touched with your bare hands would turn them to ash. However, the rocks found around it were rich with a strong metal that could be manipulated like steel. So instead the power is harnessed and gives way to a new technologies of war. However the man who discovered the rock and designed the first mech was not part of any government or country. So they were created for worthy pirate captains and lords. The governments soon caught wind of this and found the blue prints for the mechs and began building their own. This laid the foundation for a new kind of warfare for the powerful stone.

...ehem... ANY WAY

I got bored one day and started thinking ideas for some pirateish medieval universe where this rock like power source created some cool shit. And maybe there are different variations of rock that give off differnt power to create some elite mechs.

Sorry, I ramble.

i can imagine him next to chibi knight kicking major ass(not chibi knight's)

Cool pic, decent story.

I really like the style and quality of this picture. Also your little story description thingy makes it all the cooler.
Not the first of you pictures I've seen and liked, keep up the good work.


Well, this looks like "robot knight" or something like that for me, anyway, its pretty good. well done


I could base an entire game after your rambeling and this picture. ^_^

Seriously suggest it to a programmer. If you've ever played Skies of Arcadia, it could be somewhat similar gameplay. (I loved that game. If it was on newgrounds.. zomg... 9000/10 and 5000/5.)


They are cool. Your art is really cool man.
