Jordan Greywolf's Art Gallery - Meka
Back to Gallery Meka Gallery  


Here are a few pictures of "giant robot vehicles" that I've drawn, and some "meka" miniatures I've painted. My definition is a bit broad, since some of them veer into "fantasy-meka," while others could probably be more properly termed "power armor."


Thumbnail: Mechwarrior Luke of House Buren / Battlemech Thor Mechwarrior Luke of House Buren / Battlemech Thor
This is a portrait I started back in July, of my cousin Luke as a battlemech pilot, with his favorite 'mech, the Thor, in the background. BattleTech, Battlemech, and Mechwarrior are trademarks of Topps Corporation; their usage here in a fan work does not constitute a challenge to trademark status. (29 Sep 2010)

Thumbnail: Sentinel #2 Sentinel #2
A Sentinel painted up in urban camouflage, with an angel carrying the "Steel Legion" stylized lightning bolt portrayed on the flag. (Part of commission for Brian Zahra.) (1 Nov 2001)

Thumbnail: Sentinel #1 Sentinel #1
A Sentinel painted up in urban camouflage. The flag has a "winged skull" as the emblem, mirroring the "winged skull" embossed design on the mek's cockpit door. (Part of commission for Brian Zahra.) (1 Nov 2001)

Thumbnail: Dethmek Dethmek
Concept sketch for a skeletal-looking melee-specialist robot vehicle, armed with an armor-piercing pick. Pencil on scratch paper. (27 Oct 2000)

Thumbnail: Ogre Ogre
A hodge-podge, "piece o' this, piece o' that" ungainly close combat meka. Pencil and brushpen on sketchpad. (22 Sep 2000)

Thumbnail: White Knight #1 White Knight #1
Yet another close-combat oriented "knight" type meka. Pencil and brushpen on sketchpad. (22 Sep 2000)

Thumbnail: Cockpit Concept #1 Cockpit Concept #1
An attempt at designing a "control cage" style cockpit for a meka. Pencil and ink on sketchpad. (22 Sep 2000)

Thumbnail: Blue/White Knight Blue/White Knight
Concept sketch of a "knightly" meka, with a lame attempt at something approximating a background (some trees for scale). Colored pencil on sketchpad. (21 Sep 2000)

Thumbnail: Red Knight Red Knight
Concept sketch of a "knightly" meka. That's supposed to be the cockpit hatch, there in the middle of the chest. And, yeah, that heraldry and decor is just asking to get knocked off in a fight, but what fun is a meka if you can't decorate it? ;D Colored pencil on sketchpad. (21 Sep 2000)

Thumbnail: Magus, Jester and Cavalier Magus, Jester and Cavalier
Concept sketches of "fantasy" meka, done in ink and pencil on sketchbook paper. (20 Sep 2000)

Thumbnail: Gureii Ookami Gureii Ookami
The name is supposed to mean "grey wolf", minus proper grammar. I used to spell it "Okami", but that means "landlady" or "mistress," according to my Japanese dictionary. Like, whoops! (1994)

Thumbnail: Champion Mecha Champion Mecha
This was one of a few meka designs I did for one of my many poorly conceived comic project ideas that I never actually did anything with. (1993)

Thumbnail: Blitz Mecha Blitz Mecha
Originally, this was a proposed design for some meka for some "alternate Earth" RPG where the Germans won World War II. The style of the meka wasn't quite what they had in mind, and I'm not even sure that anything came of the game, either. Not much of the design makes sense, but FYI, the "bullet head" shape is supposed to be able to close down over the "eye", to provide better protection at the expense of visibility. This is one of the first meka designs I can recall giving just two fingers and a thumb to -- My reasoning was mostly that they'd be sufficient for grabbing things, and a meka shouldn't be doing fine manipulation anyway ... but also that it could allow the pilot to use his other two fingers to flip switches and such, rather than operating the robot's fingers. (1993)

Thumbnail: Three Mecha Three Mecha
Three different meka designs, originally done for the purpose of showing to a fellow who went by the handle of "Nitrocoon," for a comic project of the same name. Unfortunately, none of the designs were quite right, so nothing got done with this. (1993)
