10 Make it func­tional

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

It’s al­ways good to think of how the mech is go­ing to move, fly, shoot or what­ever. Al­though it’s im­por­tant to cre­ate a strong sil­hou­ette, hav­ing a de­sign that func­tions in a log­i­cal way will add be­liev­abil­ity. Add hy­draulics, ca­bles, nuts and bolts. In­cor­po­rat­ing those de­tails will sell the func­tion­al­ity of the mech to the viewer. This also helps add that ex­tra level of de­tail and re­al­ism to the de­sign. And of course, it’s al­ways fun to come up with ex­pla­na­tions for why you de­cided to give that gi­ant four-legged walker a gi­ant drilling mech­a­nism!
