Perfect Horizon Front Cover by Aerythes Perfect Horizon Front Cover by Aerythes
This is the front cover done for Tremorworks' Perfect Horizon tabletop RPG book. The cyberpunk setting is reminiscent of Masamune Shirow's Appleseed manga. The guy and the black mecha is based on initial designs from Tremorworks, with some heavy modifications done on the mecha by me.

EDIT: Thanks everyone, for your crits and comments. I've added some texturing to make the environment less clean and more realistic. The woman cyborg's right hand is also made a bit larger.

niiice, there is a great degree of skill here XD one question tho... is that small arm supposed to be stuck out on the mech? O_o it bothers me a little...
Reply
:iconaerythes:
Aerythes Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2005
Well, the mecha has 2 small arms sticking out (only one is visible here). They are actually the pilot's arms. It's a kind of control system; when the pilot moves his arms, the big robot arms will also move, correspondingly. Same tech as those in Appleseed. :)

I was beginning to wonder where you'd been! XD I must've missed you on my deviwatch page (out of the billions of artworks..),but here you are! ....Anyway. This is amazing! It looks so realistic...and your skill at shading never ceases to amaze me. (And as for the weathering, it certainly helps. I didn't see it before you added it..but wow. xP)

1 thing, y does the big mecha have 3 arms?
Reply
:iconaerythes:
Aerythes Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2005
Actually, it has 4 arms lol. The tech is the same as that of landmates in the Appleseed manga. The 2 small arms are those of the pilot inside. So the big arms will mimic the motions of the small arms. It's kind of a control system.

That's really cool for a book cover! The designs are superb, I really love how you did the mecha! The metallic parts are really good, but I have to say some parts look flat, like the girl's suit and skin. Try putting more shading on those parts... Ah! I love the guy's hair :3. Good job

EXTREMELY cool. This kind of art is sooo rare on dA (to my knowledge).

The only critique I could think of right away was that it basically lacks weathering (aging of stuff, showing usage, wear and tear, dirt, irregularities etc). The armor pads, the floor, it's fresher than out of the factory with a spitshine ;)

Yes you're right. I actually planned to apply a layer of weathering textures to the whole thing, but realised that I sort of ran out of time... :D

Was there ever an age of "horse-face" mecha? Of the top of my head, I can only think of some of the Evas. (FSS doesn't count, since it's blasphemous to complain about their designs' practicality XD)

Tight work. Really a job well done for both the front and back covers. I've always been a fan of sci-fi, and I can say this picture really conveys the perfect sci-fi setting. Excellent job and keep it up (^-^)!
