Here's some stuff I've been working on in my free time. Mostly pencil with digital coloring, but the last one is ballpoint. It's a bit of a throwback to an early style of mine but I'm pleased with it anyhow. Going to try and keep this thread regularly updated with new mechanical/environmental/vehicle concepts.

I like them. Especially the light powersuit.Looks like scrap material put toghether, the truck exaust muffler is a nice touch. Good job.
I especially like the ophiel, could imagine it being quite agile.
Where do you get your inspiration, any mech designs you like? Gundam, ma.k etc?

MaK is a very big inspiration, as are the real machines those machines draw upon. I find myself regularly looking at armor and aircraft models for ideas on details and wear. I figure, why reinvent the wheel?
Great stuff, I like the combo of treads and "feet" in particular.
I too would like to see more, the mechs are killer. Although I wasn't sure about how the first mech was actually standing.
Great Original Designs! I'm impressed.
Transition from Art Critic to Artiste - Diligence, that's all I need.
Thanks guys, I'll keep this thread updated with new material as often as I can. I'm anxious to revisit the legs + treads thing in the future, and will take more care with composition then.
Some great work there sir!
I really love your Full-track Half Track (last pic). Very WWII and I can especially see the SdKfx 250/9 inspiration - the perspective's a little off on some of the road wheels but otherwise a great pic and idea!
Cool stuff, this is more of the kind of things I am into. =)
Thanks guyes. I'm going to fix the perspective on that one piece, or maybe do a new version. In the meantime I did some new stuff:
