Daily Deviation

Given 2009-09-16
Alek and his Stormwalker by ~Keithwormwood "There's plenty of skill on display in this image. While there is never a shortage of mech illustrations here on DA, it's a rare treat to find a quality mech illustration utilizing early 20th century technology, and this image has an iconic look from the standpoint that it could be the cover to a period manga or anime. I can just see this young mech commander stalking across a wasteland pocked with artillery shell craters while crushing the enemies of the German empire."

very cool. Plus he has that Austrian swagger to him.

A lot of people don't perceive that old swagger very well, it's too bad! There was push-back on the white cavalry gloves too, so I had to make them black leather in some versions of this piece.

It's partially unique to the Leviathan universe, but it's built around different WWI Austro-Hungarian cavalry uniforms.
