Not much to say, I used my Armored Core art book as a sorta reference for "AC anatomy" but otherwise everything else is original. Uhm, sketched on paper, and then scanned and painted over on photoshop, and thats it.
aww, thats terrible. Yeah I would get lucky and find people who where hosting blade games, and play with them. Infact, I always remember running into this same British dude, with a glowing neon blue AC, who was like an absolute god at blade combat.
