Beluga Whale in Mechsuit by hauke3000 Beluga Whale in Mechsuit by hauke3000
Another Mechawhale. His armor is a little bit different since the whale has to "stand" upright in it. I saw many pictures of Beluga whales standing kinda upright in the water so I thought putting him like that in the Mechasuit might be interesting.

Heck yea, now thats cool. :D But dang man the Infantry Whale is still the biggest though. Wish there was like 1 or 2 more guys bigger than him, but still hes awesome, both of them as a matter of fact. XD But hey, is all ure whale Mecha characters r only gonna b whale fish style of like another fish like a bigger 1 that down in the ocean? Like bigger than the Infantry Whale that is. :D Or, r they only gonna b whales only?

Well there is the tank whale that is bigger then the infantry whale. But I want to keep the infantry whales as the "stars" of the line since I like them the best. I want to stick to whales for the moment but maybe I will make some "evolved" ones down the road. The whales have colonized lots of planets and might have adapted to some of them. I would love to a whale with a natural bone armor over his skin for example. But that are plans for the future. At the moment I will stick to "normal" whales.

May I ask how did you come up with the idea? Not everyday one sees a beluga mecha o.o
Needless to say, the model looks really good

Thanks! I came up with the initial idea of a whale in mechasuit last year. At that time I just thought it was funny. But the idea kinda grew so I came up with a backstory and even made an animation for the original whale. The new whales like the beluga all come from that original idea. It just felt like a natural extension to make different whales and give them mechasuits according to their size and characteristics.

That's a wild concept! They are a bit exposed in terms of armor protection, but I can see how hard it would be to illustrate the whale aspect without showing the whale.

Thanks! Yes I had to expose the whales in order to get the concept across. I just imagine they are so tough, they do not mind being exposed in battle. :-)

cool :3 kinda seems to have more agility, this mecha-suit :b

Thanks. Yes I wanted to create something with more agility for the Belugas. They are like communications officers between the humans and whales and I wanted to give them a suit that would allow them better to fight along the human mechasuits.

Have you ever tried ZBrush/Sculptris?

hauke3000 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012  Professional Artist
Yes I use Zbrush for details on textures. It is quite cool. I still prefer box modeling for technical stuff though thats why these guys are done with a traditional box modeling program like softimage.
