Just fooling around. Wanted to make the Juggernaut more mechanical, with 4 free-moving thrusters on him. I still like how it floats in the games, but wanted to explore alternatives.

A very cool design. Also the smile :D

If it were to be put into the game, I could see issues with its animation, as the 4 thrusters would not be able to be animated separately. Split between two purely hovering and two forward thrust could probably work between the idle and moving animations though.

Cool design, but it feels a bitâ?¦ human. I think the absence of the black orbs (since it's clearly based on the M1 version) makes it feel a lot less alien. But maybe that's actually what you wanted, like a Pfhor-Human collaboration after the Big War?

Robot cyborg vehicles, I'd imagine.

Jk. Like the Pfhor Hunters, I believe it's up for debate.

Love Marathon, and also play Doom on modern source ports? You might like these skins!

If you were to flesh that out and give it some color, I'd love to make a wallpaper out of it...

Thanks Zott! Oh, I know, I was just looking at design alternatives.

I like the idea of them being bio-mechanical.

Yeah, this was just an experiment. I do prefer the orbs, I wanted to see how it may look if the game was modernized, which isn't necessarily a good thing. Interesting thought though.

I do want to do more Marathon themed art eventually, I just need to find the time and an idea.

From it's inception in M1 I perceived the Juggernauts as floating war zeppelins with a pfhor pilot inside.
