(is anyone else fed up of images with unusual dimensions being shrunk to fit DA?)
Anyway, I spent a bit of time pulling apart layers in photoshop so I can show you a bit of how my work comes together, and how much went into getting the look right on this particular image.
The top rank of images show more of my the way I worked on the picture and its progress, although it was obviously a much slower process done in many more stages than these 5 thumbs show.
The main 2 images are then complete drawings of the two main parts that made up the legs: the mechanics, drawn first, and the armour which was added later and designed to fit around the existing structures.
Sorry nich, i tried for an exploded diagram but I couldn't do it with the existing stuf, would have had to start again :s
