Spot on there! I've got mixed thoughts about this one. In some ways it's a break from my usual work, but in others it's quite formulaic. We've all seen plenty of giant robots, mechs, etc. and the composition owes a lot to two Keith Thompson illustrations (Halfling Executors of Megalys, Alek and his Stormwalker). There's a bit of Daryl Mandryk here too. I mostly viewed it as a technical challenge.

The sniper's much more down to earth, though I've probably doomed myself to endless comments on "big hair" (it's meant to be a ghillie cloak). I might cover this in a longer description.

That brings back some memories - it's the first time anyone's mentioned that game to me in ages.

Back in the late 90s, a friend was really into it. I've still got vivid memories of his crumbling Summer Hill apartment, beautiful ubergoth partner and semi-tame rat population, all of which could have been lifted straight from the dark world of Mort. I was more familiar with the setting described in the rulebook than the gameplay. It's been a lasting influence (probably most obvious in the Necromechanics series I've been expanding over the years)!

Never played it either,
the lore is facinating though.

This is amazing. both characters seem to portray this vibe of "hard scrabble do-or-die" asskickery both their equipment/demeanors and the implied setting provide.

You must always choose your battles wisely; for example, avoid the big guy...

Thanks! Giant robots are popular subjects but I haven't used them much. There are other common tropes here - sci fi and fantasy art is filled with mismatched companions/girls with monsters - and the composition's nothing new. I looked at two Keith Thompson pieces for inspiration (Halfling Executors of Megalys and Alek and his Stormwalker) but the big machine itself owes more to the work of Daryl Mandryk, another world-class sci fi artist.

The sniper was much easier. A lot of DA artists send women into battle half-naked but I usually give them more practical gear. The "big hair" some viewers have commented on is meant to be a ghillie cloak - lighter and cooler than a full suit, but just as effective for prone shooters. I might cover this in a longer description or add some weave to make it clearer.

Welcome my friend :)

Giant robots are cool, just look at the Harvester from terminator ^^ 
Dat dude is awesome! :D Hmm, interesting...

Yeah I really don't see why they do that, I'm pretty sure she needs 
some form of armor. A ghillie suit? makes sense ^^; it just sorta looks 
like hair, my mistake :lol:

holy shit! Cool! I really love the detail you added to the big guy, am sure he's in no way human <xD but honestly, you can see the plating here and there and tell that IS a robot you're looking at : ) amazing work mister flaxman ^_^ I'm just hopping that's not the ladies hair xD

Thanks! This piece was a lot of fun, and don't worry about the "hair" - it's a hooded ghillie cloak!
