Big Five: Elephant Breakdown by CrazyAsian1 Big Five: Elephant Breakdown by CrazyAsian1
Hey everyone! To kick off my new initiative with the Big Five I'm making available the breakdowns/explanations I created for the 5 mechas I designed. As a bonus you can download the full res version for your individual scrutiny!! I'll be adding 1 per week so stay tuned for more :)

For those of you who missed it. I've made prints available for all 5 of the Big 5 illustrations plus the most recent Rhino painting I did. They are for sale through Deviantart which has lots of options for purchasing so please take a look.

ALL PROFITS MADE FROM SALES OF ANYTHING RELATED TO BIG FIVE WILL BE DONATED THE INTERNATIONAL ANTI POACHING FOUNDATION (IAPF.)

The IAPF operates in South Africa/Zimbabwe in Kruger National Park. Their mission is to protect the animals of the park through anti-poaching patrols, aerial drone surveillance, animal tagging/relocation, and community education/outreach. Their efforts inspired me to design the Big Five series. I believe in their cause and as a token of thanks for providing an invaluable service to the planet I've dedicated all profits made through print sales to them. They need the cash more than I do.

I repeat again:
ALL PROFITS WILL BE DONATED TO THE IAPF

You win both ways. You buy some awesome art, and you support an even more awesome cause. :)

Thanks!!!!!!!
Rob

If only these things were real. If any governments want a mechanized anti-poaching force they should totally use your designs

I love the ear design! If extra energy is needed then they could easily be switched out for solar panels to collect Africa's endless supply of sun to fuel power cells deep inside the body

Cool designs man! I'm curious though, the kevlar looking fabric along the body makes it look like it could be an augmented actaul elephant, yet I'm feeling its a Mech in the shape of an elephant. am I right here? It's wicked either way!

This is really brilliant.  I think the way you've translated the physical traits of the animals into these mechs is genius- and I especially like the way each mech's role makes sense!

Thick, robust, protective, and logistically effective. Best ride for long-distance patrols! :D
