Mech cockpit by zwimmy Mech cockpit by zwimmy
These are the two parts of one of the assignments for my Algonquin portfolio. We had to draw a character seated at some form of desk/workstation/cockpit from two different views.

What exactly do you mean by "make use"?

There's a scene in one of my stories I need a pic of a mech cockpit for, preferably with pilot.

Basically, the pilot hears over the radio "Sir, according to satellite data...Florida has moved. And yes, I mean the state."

So I was going to use this awesome picture for that.

My friends and I are the only ones who will see it, I will give credit to you as the original artist behind the picture, and I will not redistribute for profit.

Is that a problem?

Thanks a ton, dude.

[link] I posted the first draft to DA, if that's okay with you...makes it a ton easier to share, since I can just provide a link, or copy the image url...
If that's a problem, I will take it down.

I'll let you know when I get it finished! (And probably send you the digitally colored version...any particular color scheme you want? I was thinking blue pilot suit, gold visor, glowing green screens, and gunmetal everything else.)

Love the interior design. I'm diggin' that targeting console in front of the pilot. However, I'm wondering how the pilot gets into the cockpit. Is there some sort of hatch? Or is there a door behind the pilot's seat?

That's a good question.

Awesome work mate... gives (to me anyway) more of a "Mechwarrior" feel than anime... which is really cool.

Funny you should say that, I looked at a few old gundam layouts to get me started.

Hmmm. I wish to add this to my favorites. It looks very practical like all cockpits. I wish to base a design similar to yours. I promise to give you credit. Thank you.

Thanks. By the way, have you ever been in a jet fighter cockpit? You should go to some aerospace museum, because you can be inspired from the gadgetry of fighter planes from WWI, WWII, Vietnam and the Cold War. You'll be amazed of the complex engineering and training pilots go through just being in the seat of one of them babes! Phew!

I suggest you go to March Air Force Base in Riverside, CA. It's the shit for you Sci-Fi and aeronautic buffs!

Here are some links:

That's cool. As for now, I do wish to use your cockpit as a reference. Thank you. Glad we had this conversation.

Oh yes, do go to March Air Force Base and it's museum someday. But perhaps there are other AF bases nearby you.
