Lowlands Wastewing by Spex84
Lowlands Wastewing
The wastewings are twisted creatures of the blasted lowlands surrounding the city of Grace. The wastewings and their ilk are innumerable in their teeming hordes, and force the city to build its defensive walls ever higher.
These creatures  in the smoky chasms and pockmarked sinkhole-caverns that dot the lowlands.

Hopefully I can return to this world and do some more art soon.

Battle Shunt by Spex84
Battle Shunt
The city of Grace is protected from the various creatures of the scalded lowlands by a wide array of defensive and offensive weaponry. The Shunt is a class of compact high-speed sportster (or in this case, armored escort) that features steerable front wheels and a hovering tail. A system of boost nodes arrayed on the tail allow the craft to make rapid lateral movements in order to avoid obstacles or incoming fire. This system can be used to keep the vehicle's guns on-target as the craft crab-walks in a drifting arc around its prey.

The elite of the city of Grace own elaborate dueling shunts--vehicles designed both for the gentlemanly settling of disputes and for sheer display of wealth-- and parade them nightly in the glamorous streets of the promenade district. These vehicles rarely, if ever, see combat, but their heritage is clearly visible in the battle-ready workhorses of the city.

///did this one a while back, have been meaning to get back to doing concepts for this world but have not found the time. Hopefully soon! It's from the same world as spex84.deviantart.com/art/City…

*logotype is placeholder. I'm still trying to come up with something more finished that has the look and style to suit the world.

I've posted a short slideshow/video of my recent mech speedbuild. Here it is! :
Mech Speedbuild 01 by Spex84
Mech Speedbuild 01
Late last year I decided to take a break from model projects that involved a lot of careful planning and detail, and sat down for an afternoon with a pile of junk parts and a hot glue gun.

I've been collecting junk for ages now, and when I have too much, I get rid of some. This time, it actually turned into something :)

Using hot glue is quick, crude, and a lot of fun because design decisions can be made on the fly without careful cutting or waiting for adhesives to set.

This is my first build of this kind...it was a lot of fun. The final product has a lot of rough edges, but that was the whole point.

I made a couple of sketches first to get a rough idea of what I was going to build, and then I went nuts. I spent 4 hours or so building on the first day, painted it olive drab on the second...didn't like that, and the model sat for months. Then I came back to it, ripped off the original (fat) front legs and replaced them with legs more like the rears (another hour or so) and re-painted it in the scheme you see here (another few hours).

A partial parts list:
-dental floss container
-toothpaste caps
-tictac lid
-spool
-Stealth bomber landing gear
-p-51 fighter parts
-helicopter rotor blades
-plane ailerons and spars
-small chunks from a klingon battlecruiser
-small plastic cylinder collected on the beach
-wooden peg with rounded end
-LED in housing
-large diode (?)
-puzzle toy pieces made of connected spheres (I cut them apart and used individual spheres at joints)
-corvette frame pieces, intake hose
-sheet plastic
-wire
-pipe filters (metal mesh)
-craft eyelets

EDIT: and here's a little slideshow/video that shows some of the work in progress: www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBqGlx…

Was pretty much what I expected from the trailers. Loved it, even if it wasn't quite what I was expecting (not sure what I was expecting).
In a world of car franchises that have lost touch with their automotive roots (cough, Fast and Furious), the characters of Mad Max still worship the mighty V8. And superchargers. Nitro. Necker knobs. Flame-spewing exhaust. Temples erected to the glory of guzzoline.
The film is gleefully insane without lurching too far into cheesiness....I was worried it might bring 80s camp along with some of the 80s visuals, but thankfully, no. Well, maybe a little bit. But in a good way.

 It's a wild ride!
