Marauder 4X Blue Print by LKY13 Marauder 4X Blue Print by LKY13
I was able to work with Iron Wind Metals to produce a set of orthographic images for the upcoming Marauder 4X sculpt. The original art was created by Matt Plog and Shimmering Sword working together. I just took their artwork and made a set of blueprints (if you will) to make sculpting easier for Mr. Behrle Hubbuch at IWM. I also created a top and rear view, but have omitted them here. I have seen the nearly finished sculpt and its going to create a few fans (to keep things modest). Can't wait.

Any possibility of a High-Res copy for personal poster prints?  Also, any other blueprints coming down the tubes? This is awesome.  I would love to see this kind of thing for all of your mechs, very nice!!!

It's a much better MAD than the PP version, but I still find it too broad in the torso and legs. Excellent art though

After looking at the original work I see a few mistakes, most obvious are the double shoulder pads instead of a longer back. I can see where the confusion came from in the lineart regarding that though. 
 the center piece of the pelvis is too narrow and pointy. And the top of the srm6 launchers is the wrong angle. (it should be sloping down)
The blue print itself is nice though something just seems to have gotten lost in translation from angled pieces to orthographics.

just my 2 cents I'm just looking forward to this mini as well for reason you are well aware of :P

Like everything I do in an official capacity, I was heavily art directed on this with several revisions. Some of the changes you mention above are a result of comments from those with a higher authority than I (the SRMs were radically different, sloping downward etc). =)

Ah I see, I have a pet peeve when things don't match the source art. something I've seen in Battletech way too often :(
