Zeus by derylbraun Zeus by derylbraun
Mythological characters going mech.
Came up with the theme after a serious artist block and since i havn´t done mechstuff i gave it a go.

First: Zeus

- bladelike parts around his neck represent the typical beard.
- Forearm is kind of a generator to make his lightning stuff happen.
- the flow of some parts should refer to a toga
and
- the eagle themed parts refer to the story of Ganymed.

Looking forward to do Hades or Medusa now.
Hope you enjoy it.

Awesome mech series! Looking forward to seeing more. A creative contrast in the themes between machine and ancient gods, keep it up!

I like the color scheme and lightning effect. Mech design is one of a kind and fits very well.

For the flat head issue mentioned, its just perspective, you could try using glow eye textures for a subtle highlight on its facial features.

Thanks man!!! One more to go and so far i tried to make each one better then the one before.
For the flat head - Zeus told me if i touch it he will BBQ my behind. STRIKE DOWN! Seriously
i don´t think i will do more changes. Took enough time and that decision was made at one 
point, so just let him have a flat head. ^^

Oh MY God!!! Ive been trying to pull off a mecha twist on greek mythology for so long but they come out looking sooo cartoony. How do you come up with so much detail and realism? Please give me some tips. Ugh the struggle.
