Savage Land Drossel by wbd Savage Land Drossel by wbd
Drossel Von Flugel (From "Fireball") has taken a bit of a trip, and found herself lost in the Savage Land. Being a self-repairing robot has its benefits, however, and she seems to be doing well enough. Perhaps she's been helping out a lost tribe or something.

This pic was inspired by :icongb2k:'s Savage Land series, which is pretty darned awesome. I think my favorite is Savage Land Tifa:

Art Notes

As I'm learning about mecha design and drawing, I figured I'd draw a relatively straightforward design. I took a bunch of pictures of my Figma Drossel, after posing it, then used them to help make this picture, along with the figure itself. Normally, I'd be a lot more free with posing and whatnot, but I was very strict this time, because it's important for me to get a feel for the way mechanical structures work in space. I want to get things right.

(By the way, as I'm uploading this, I'm listening to "Robot Rock" by Daft Punk)

Only thing that would make this better is if she were in a capoeira pose with Schadenfreude on her head.

It wouldn't work with the Savage Land design theme. Besides, she could get a real monkey, I figure.

Did she take her butler with her? XD

Thanks!

I think maybe she's alone this time- and it's probably good for her to learn to look after herself.

The Savage land series idea is pretty interesting.
Just wondering though, if you had the time to create a series in a similar fashion of your own, what would it be?

Hmm, I'd have to think more about it. I'm really not quite sure.

Very cool. I thought =gb2k had gone off the deep end a bit at first. I like her pose and the solid construction along with the subtle jungle flavor.

Thanks! By strictly drawing what was in the photos I took, and also the action figure itself, I was able to get a better understanding of construction and form. My next step is to take what I've learned and apply it to simple pose sketches or stuff straight from my imagination.

Thanks! I learned a lot from being very strict like this- just drawing basically the photo and the action figure sitting by my computer. Okay, I cheated on one hand because I wanted a different pose, but the rest I tried to make as exact as possible. My hope is that I can take what I've learned and apply it to original poses (or poses that are quick sketches of action figures and whatnot). I have to start somewhere.
