I really love your art style.

That's really cool. The soldier gives great size comparison. :V

Here's some unused art assets from Intercept Orbit:

Ghanat pressure suit, with rigid torso armour. A conventional pressurized design, since mechanical counter-pressure isn't so great when you're covered in fur. The armour is thickest over the Ijad.
Image

Free Colonies armoured pressure suit. Based on the winner of a NASA design contest for a Mars pressure suit from a few years ago, with rigid cermet armour plates added.
Image

This was supposed to be a mechanical counter-pressure suit worn by Palau deck crew. The version without the tactical doodads appears in the rulebook as an FC suit instead.
Image

Ijad frigate escorting a freighter, trading fire with something off-screen. It's mainly to show off the missile launcher/maneuvering thruster 'flippers'.

Those are beyond awesome!

Thanks for sharing.

Also, I never noticed that the ghanateh had such well defined and articulate fingers.

The back cover of MF0:Firebrands features a trio of mobile frames, but the late-model Osprey conceals a lot of the other two. Anyways, the individual illustrations:

Late-model Osprey

Image

Just wanted to mention that the square patch on its left thigh is a QR code giving basic info about the unit. The small hatches on the shoulder-shields are flare & chaff dispensers.


Conscript/Commissar

Image

Lots of jury-rigging on this one, including the entire right arm. There's a cutting torch bolted on near the pivot of the pincers. The handheld weapon is a simple, triple-tube rocket launcher with gravity feed.


Chub

Image

To reflect its owner's aristocratic status, this has a good deal of custom-built applique armour which is both decorative & functional. The upsized anti-materiel rifle is intentionally designed to resemble a lance, referencing its long reach & anti-armor capability. It's also a bit of a dichotomy, in that its length makes it unwieldy for anything but combat at long range. The weapon's appearance, minus the shroud, was modeled on the EM-2 rifle. The military pick is for melee combat, and has a rocket thruster built into its head for additional oomph when striking.

I was considering a set of flip-up wheels behind the heels to resemble rowel spurs, but I totally forgot about it.

Awesome artwork as always, Ryujin! It's nice to get a look at some more customized frames.

This design's for a fantasy setting that I've been toying with, but a lot of mobile frames--being of the same size--have a similar internal layout:

I absolutely adore the classical (Spanish-inspired?) frame pilot jumpsuit. That seals the deal for me, setting-wise, and makes the concept all the more believable.

This is the first time I came across this thread.... It's like coming across a unnoticed treasure that was right in front of you the whole time. This artwork is really stunning! Some really wonderful concepts. Love it, just spectacular!
