The Goal Keeper by JakeParker The Goal Keeper by JakeParker
This is part of a series of illos I've been doing over the past few years. I'm calling it World War V for now. Every once and a while I like to dive into the future military sci-fi realm. I like my military sci-fi with one foot in the real world and the other firmly planted in the fantastic.

Some thoughts on this design: By this point in the future we're done with heavy diesel engines and have replaced them with a lighter more powerful alternative. This model has two engines. A larger upper engine supplying power to the arms and rail gun. and a smaller lower engine responsible for the legs. The engines are placed in the front to add extra protection to the crew in case of a frontal attack. And by placing them up front it leaves space for a rear entrance to the main crew compartment.

For urban patrolling I would imagine he'd use a much smaller armament that wouldn't get in the way while traversing alley ways. So I imagine in the scenario shown above, this walker was patrolling a more open terrain and was was lured into this alley way.

Also, allied troops gave this guy the nickname "Fatlady" because when she sings, it's all over. Wakka wakka wakka.

The painting lines and the structure of the mecha reminds me of the Front Mission Series.

Really great work, the little boy with the ball gives a innocent contrast to the piece when compared to the huge menacing mech.

Ha ha, very cool. Sort of a 'District 9' style futurism meeting urban international dystopia. Very neat stuff.
