'Slider' Armed Robotic Sentry

Intended for mild security duty, the Slider is armed with a dual laser turret and three targeting eyes to help it discern distance and movement. On flat ground it can maintain a maximum moving speed of nearly 15 MPH, and due to its lightweight construction it has a vertical jump of 4.2 feet. However, Sliders have severe difficulty making sudden stops or turns at speeds above 6 MPH, prompting their nickname.

The standard Slider model shown here weighs in at a mere 180 lbs and stands about 4' tall. While the dual laser turret remains the most popular choice of weaponry, Sliders are also available with dual submachine guns or a single high-caliber machine gun in the turret.

Although not a particularly fearsome robot individually, Slider units are able to wirelessly communicate with each other to swarm a foe. Those who are interested in low-cost security often will purchase a few Sliders rather than spring for a larger, more expensive robot due to how easy it is to upgrade a security force by adding extra Slider units.

Might add a couple more things but it's pretty much done.

Awesome subject. Love the painterly style. Your 'bots are too awesome Zack. ^.^

Maybe he's holding some kinda of binocular pinpointing device. The bloke can pinpoint and then the tank fires automatically! :O
Love the angles in this piece. Great draw! :)
marcello (Feb 9, 2006)
actually terracotta, that's a new 2draw feature I'm testing out on random accounts. it deduces the content of the picture and generates appropriate sound effects/ambient music when possible

Very nice piece!

not exactly sprites, but small-scale mecha design sketches

Wow, this is really cool :D
Zack (Aug 27, 2005)
RP: you're not far off the mark from my intention; as can be seen, each mech has 2 small guns on the body (the distant one being obscured for the first two) and 2 of what I call "weapons pods," which would be interchangeable with each other (except for right/left orientation). The large gun and 6-missile launcher on the middle mech could be swapped with the weapons on the other mechs, for example. Also, each mech's torso would be capable of rotating over the base of the legs.

HK: yeah, Marcello preferred the other two as well. Strangely, I like the middle one most, but not by a wide margin.

Kabomb: Power Rangers? Good lord, no. :P Transformers is a stretch; the strongest distinct influence on these designs was probably Battletech. (w/ mechs such as the Uller/Kit-Fox and Shadowcat)

Walter: I'll probably draw more with humanoid legs. I used the same legs between them because legs are the hardest part to animate (which is pertinent to the reason I drew these in the first place). Prowler lives again?

satsu: thanks!

I wonder what these Mechs would look like If they were on PIMP YOUR MECHA.
Zack (Feb 8, 2006)
Simple; they would have gaudy paintjobs, tasteless chrome, pointlessly powerful sound systems, and small legion of DVD video players installed in bizarre places, while their interior machinery would recieve no upgrades whatsoever.

Ooooh. Nice metal effects on him. I love this style.
WhoopsieDaisy (Jul 3, 2005)'s a cute little cartoon, nice work you!

There we go! Giant Robot Rampages are always fun! It's missing something though... You gotta have people fleeing in terror, classic monster movie style. heh. :P

um wtf dorothy? here's my two cents... you are missed Zack, I love the robots you draw, and loved that brass colored one you made with the little tiny man workin' on its' parts.

Zacks workin... game art and all that kinda stuff
shults (Mar 25, 2011)
And I loved that freakish windmill house and the village on trees where everything looks peaceful but there was something rotten there.. Oh, and he also had a great piece with blues and yellows, it was some sort of organ combined with a machine..

Haven't done one of these in a while.

A new design of mine, showing stronger Japanese influence. I'm planning to make a poster-size image featuring this bot (not necessarily at this angle) in Photoshop. Not sure whether to put arms or guns on or just leave the shoulders as they are. C&C appreciated.

edit: Done with this picture. I'll probably do more sketches like this of this bot.

kejoco (May 24, 2005)
I agree with marcello, the problem wasn't with the panel with the 3 things, it was with the panel above that which was throwing the perspective off. Looks good now as it is though

This robot owns. I hope it is the mascot! It kinda reminds me of the Fhqwhgads robot on Homestarrunner.

I put my bet on the green one because it is a transgalactic federation robot, as its star of authenticity on its chestplate states.Those robots are of much higher quality. <:)
marcello (Oct 20, 2004)
I think I liked the lighter background a bit better...
Knockoff (Oct 20, 2004)
yay! A robot picture, from Zack! Thats awesome, the simple coloring is great. I like the little spraks.
