Greif by Tabnir Greif by Tabnir
"Greif" mecha. Originally an exploratory concept for :iconvulnepro:'s TKP FOIL but it turned out a bit more EVA with it's hunched-over profile, narrow pelvis, and the whole quasi-human arm style.

Will color and edit deviation after I get some other ones done.

I like the shoulder. It look like a blade.

Ahh... Eva style mecha never seem to get old! (unless they are heavly overused of course) Brilliant machine design ounce again! :D
Aside from that, the right arm looks like its broken/dislocated at the shoulder. CrashLegacy pretty much said every thing that needed to be said about this one. Great work... fav...

Yeah I aimed for the dislocated arm look from the very beginning -- I wanted a kind of slunky zombie-like aspect.

the quasi human arm style reall draws out the eva look, you probably would have done better with arms that looked more akin to the legs (i.e. armored/mechanical looking) or just detaield heavily enough that the arm dosen't imeadiately look like a single solid shape. the shoulders themselves (not your neat upper arm thingie) look some what odd almost like the mecha is ment to look like the arms are dislocated. The attached sword rack also further adds to the eva like qualities since it comes off with a back shaped liked the eva, though the idea of the swrod rack feels like it came from code geass.

but as always I must say I love the general style you use, and inparticlar I like your torso/head combo you have here the shape of it is sweet.

Yes, I wanted the arm attitude to feel rather zombie-like, so I made them slunk forward. I agree with making the arms look more armored but in my haste I scanned it up without doing it and now it's too late because I over-applied the Fixatif T_T

You have some very nice tech motifs happening that strike me as rather unique despite the eva-inspired frame.

EVA eh lol. Ask Vulnepro why I am laughing.

The hunched back adds character in a weird way. I like it :D

I originally wanted the hunched-over look to resemble kind of a zombie-like aspect, with the arms hanging loose. The rear sword rack is detachable :)

He is pretty zombie like, now that you mention it. Plus, it sounds like this guy is armed to the teeth! :D

im stumped even though it did not came out as you quite wanted it i really like it and id like to color it :XD: sometime
its the EVA look that most appeals to me
and i can notice on the thigh pieces that you got inspired on EVA - 01 lose the most resembling pieces and youll have an original one
