Battletech sketch to back into the grove after a long artistic block
Inspired by a BT game, this was the last thing a Shadow Hawk pilot saw before his mech was decapitated by the Griffin's Particle Projectile Canon.

There are a few ways to depict the Battletech Griffin but I chose to used :iconshimmering-sword: work as a reference, the very well balance mix between the original, reseen and MWO looks. 
Happy New Years everyone!

New Years Resolutions for 2015:

1.) Get back in fighting shape.

2.) Draw more, practice and improve my art techniques

3.) Do more commissions

4.) Get out more, hang out with friends and meet new people.

5.) Become a better Mechwarrior and look into becoming a Demo agent.

I was kind of a work-a-holic this year and I let myself get burnt out. I need to make time for me to have a life.

My new with both MechWarrior Online and Skyrim so I will have plenty of inspiration for drawing but I really need to look beyond the BTU genre to expand my portfolio. I owe a buddy of mine, DJ Sunder a commission for helping a with my new PC and he is always good for getting me to something new. 

I still have allot of financial goals that I did not get completed in 2014 but working myself to death has not been the answer. Hopefully literally going back to the drawing board will help.

Here is to New Year and a new start for us all :)

1. What does your Deviantart name mean and why?

Steel Raven was originally a name I came up for a mech design years back, possible inspired by the Raven mercenaries in the Armor Core series.
