I wanted to draw a mech for a good friend, since we're both into that stuff. He didn't have anything specific in mind but knew that he wanted it to look and feel light and fast, sleek but exposed, as if sacrificing durability for speed. I'm pretty proud of the double-sided rockets on the legs.

I only wish I reconsidered how the feet worked. I'm not sure how this thing walks! Maybe it just does space missions.
