Magitek Armor by potatofarmgirl Magitek Armor by potatofarmgirl
Weird story behind this. I was one of the character designers on a show called "Out of Jimmy's Head" on Cartoon Network a few years ago. We were pushing out an episode a week at a time, and the crew was great to work with even with the quota expected from us. A lot of gamers on the crew.
One episode had the main characters piloting mechs. So to try to make it fun for us, one of the mechs is actually the Magitek armor from Final Fantasy VI. I never saw the finished episode, I think they only aired once?
I don't have the original drawing, just a low res scan, but I tried fancying it up after someone on Tumblr requested seeing it.
So yup. Lame stupid show, fantastic crew mates with hearts of gold, and video games.
The end.

The cartoon industry these days is pretty damn hard to work in now. Way too businessey as opposed to the 90s that broke it out of that crap that it went through during the 80s.

Nice little story to a rather awesome drawing. Man I'd love to work with a crew that can animate, AND are huge gamers. :(

I rather like this spin on it, if you look at the original concept art and whatnot it has far too many little details and greebles for my taste. This here is lovely.

Was it the Golly or the Tux that had this mecha? That much I forgot.

I think it was Tux that had this mech, but I'm not entirely sure who got paired with what. The other two mechs were based on Simon's Lagann/ Bowser's Clown pod, and the last mech was based off of the Kuribo Shoe from Super Mario Bros. 3.

Golly was supposed to be in the Lagann, Croco in the Kuribo shoe?

huh, this actually looks pretty legit. I've always avoided shows on cartoon network simply because they proved to be stupid or too outrageous for my liking. Love the mecha.

To me the show(and movie) were rather underappreciated. It was created during a time when a lot of the old fans of cartoon network(including myself) were still sulking over how all of the shows were nothing like the ones we watched when we were littlle(eg. Chowder and the Adventures of Flapjack). Above all I would have to say your art design on that show was vary good =D, it had such a wacky eccentric appeal to it (kind of like Ren & Stimpy).

Thanks! It was an odd time for me, cause I'm also a fan of old school cartoon network. It was really frustrating knowing that they were going to be putting more live action on the network and less cartoons.
I was out of work for awhile after that, because they were making less animation, and thus less jobs at the studio, and nothing for me to jump onto once Jimmy ended.
Luckily I'm at Warner's now, and Cartoon Network is finally making fun cartoons again!
