Big Five Part 1 by CrazyAsian1 Big Five Part 1 by CrazyAsian1
Mecha Rhino! I intend to design mecha's around Africa's Big Five game animals.
These are the:
Rhinoceros
Cape Buffalo
Elephant
Lion
Leopard

Most of them are endangered from poaching, particularly the Rhino. The horns are cut off the Rhino for some sort of traditional Asian medicine BS. IT'S A GIANT FINGERNAIL! A COMPRESSED LUMP OF HAIR! IT DOES NOTHING.

I'll be going through the list in no particular order so stay tuned for me.

Thanks for dropping by.

Agreement on the rhino-horn being BS for medicine. Maybe you can set your mecha-rhino on those poachers if they spot any....

This is a brilliant idea, to use a mecha rhino to safegaurd herds of other rhino, and perhaps tempt those bastard poachers into attacking something that has armour and can fight back... or call in the cavalry. It's only a shame that they don't exist right now.

The dried and powered testicles of poachers is a general tonic, cures baldness and is the answer to global warming!!!! Just saying! ;)

I always feel so bad for the rhinos and their poaching, such silly tribal nonsense..this looks awesome, but needs more fluff text!

Also, wouldn't this one be another offensive piece like the lion? Not as aggressive obviously, but it seems a waste since these things are well known for charging...and with all that armor and that horn....

I know it isn't really one of the 'Big Five' but you think you might do a Hippo as well?

haha yeah I need to update this guy. He was the first one in the series I did, so I didn't really think of some cool description to go with him. I've since written one, but I want to redo this image. I feel i could do a better more dynamic image and this Rhino is like...10 feet tall. hahaha

The Rhino would be an all rounder I think. Offense and defense.

I could do a Hippo. We'll see where things go. Thanks for the feedback :)

I don't know, having a red-eyed robo-rhino glaring at you is pretty dynamic in my book!

Do you do concept art for books or something? Because your work is certainly good enouhg for that, hell, it could easily be used as cover art.

I would like to second the idea of a hippo, since non of these animals are particularly adept with water, except somewhat the lion and leopard. A hippo or a crocodile would really expand the capabilities of this military(?) force you've created.

Well I doubt I am not the only one who thinks this should not remain a personal project. Would love to see this developed into a game. Get in touch with a few developers if you have not already.

Love the look of defiance that you get from the hippo staring directly at the viewer. The red eyes really seal the deal. Awesome textures and overall lighting. That thing has some serious weight to it.
