Big Five: Rhino breakdown by CrazyAsian1 Big Five: Rhino 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 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

What about a Black Rhino breakdown? Fookin love this series of Mecha. It touches on an interest of mine, since having spent my childhood in East Africa. I also love the idea of a book. Keep up the excellent work.

Very, very impressive! At first glance when we see the Big 5, they don't have many obvious weapons. But seeing this, makes them seem all the more plausible! And much more intimidating too.

Question; if poachers are hunting animals and we were to employ these Rhino's, they'd blend in... from a distance. However, poachers can apparently make good money, so, it's not impossible for them to hunt using thermal optics. If these machines were widely employed, and the poachers knew it, they'd simply use Thermal Optics more heavily. Even with Thermal Optics of today, it is possible to see the veins beneath the warm skin of the rhino as hotter points, revealing a layer of detail that is simply astounding.... How would the IAPF operate, when their machines would either have obvious heat signatures, a too even of a spread of heat, or no heat difference from the terrain, which would give it away anyways?

you bring up a good point. Do technologies or methods exist to mask heat signatures?

I'm not certain. If they did, it'd likely be around the black ops level of tech (Right now). However, in a future where robots are disguised as animals? It's possible. Just not sure quite how, yet.

Mmm thanks for the heads up! I'll keep that in mind and try to think of some sort of hypothetical fantasy solution to that... haha :D

Very well done. One thing to consider; maybe the horn should be carbon fiber or tungsten carbide. real world combat knives tend towards those.

CrazyAsian1 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
It was originally tungsten carbide.... it's not hazardous like pure tungsten right? Forgive my lack of proper knowledge in the area X__X

Initially I was thinking depleted uranium! Not kosher for the environment though X____________x
