Best Friends mechs- Matt
and with this, the mechs project is done! (though it might not be completely completed just yet? i’ll explain later)
matt’s mech i think was semi-hard to make unique from the others, he seems to like hype things, and wrestling. so we have a mech with the build of a professional fighter (may or may not be a wrestler) that punches things into dust WITH ITS FISTS, while inflicting stab damage via its GIGANTIC SPIKES, i guess something along the lines of a set of brass knuckles.
this mech would be an extremely close combat fighter, right up in the enemy’s faces (or face areas?? perhaps the enemies are faceless idk) it would move medium speed and attacks medium speed also (liam’s has the fastest attacks and movement speed, woolie’s is a faster mover but attacks slower, and pat’s barely moves at all while grounded and takes large amounts of time to prepare -while dealing immense damage via explosives)
i almost wanted to go punisher themed but i decided against it (this is the second time i did that actually, originally i wanted to have all the mechs have drills on them but alas, i couldn’t fit them into pat’s mech’s design so i had to scratch it, you bet those spikes were thought of at some point as drills) because i kinda wanted it separate and standalone from other things -rather than relying on other franchises ya dig?
and so instead of punisher, a generic skull with FIRE coming out of its mouth (or two cigars? take it as you will)
lastly, what other color scheme could i use except the old red white and blue
now that this project is finished -or at least finished for the time being- looking back, the only thing that ties the 4 mechs together is the gold in the color scheme (something unintentional actually for the most part) maybe it is a symbol that friendship is golden and ties the 4 together? idk you decide
the reason i even started this project was to give a little shout-out thank you to my favorite lpers for just being super goddamn quality (honestly some of the only lpers who can make me laugh consistently, and make my day better good job on that guys!). i was fiddling with the idea until i found out that matt has a tumblr and then realized, hell i should actually do this
well, realestmatt i really sincerely hope you like this or at least appreciate it (or see this even haha) at the very least, thank you for what you and your team do and know that you truly are the hypest lets players on youtube

*one last note, i may post other things regarding this project like the sketches involved or maybe even a composite of the action poses or refs (i’ve kept them to size too) in which case i’ll make a new post with it all on there (it’s not a whole lot i don’t think, some of these are a bit unsatisfactory as of now and it feels like i should close it up for good, though technically the project is finished)
