I don't know why that one sketch has gotten under my skin like it has but I can't shake it. I hate that I posted it and I hate even more that I have not graduated to the 3/4 view. Anyhow. Here's another spinoff of the original.
I drew the mech on the bottom left a while back. I was never all that pleased with it so I'm giving it another go. I don't have a favorite with the four new ones but at least they look like they can support the weight of the mechanism.
