Gotham Gears: Mr Freeze and The Penguin by ChasingArtwork Gotham Gears: Mr Freeze and The Penguin by ChasingArtwork
♦ Extraordinarily long lasting power source- powered by a collection of unique cold-fusions cells. (self designed+integrated)
♦ Emits a extremely cold temperature pulse - most machinery can't function properly if it comes within a close proximity
♦ Superior intelligence

♦ Operating system heavily relies on extremely cold conditions, Freeze can barley function once internal temperature starts approaching zero degrees.
(especially the head unit, requires an enclosed coolant filled dome at all times to ensure constant cold)

♦ Built from a extraordinarily complex arrangement of custom gears and hydraulics- Penguin runs on unknown types of software and hardware.
♦ Invulnerable to any kind of eletrical interference / system hacking ect.
♦ Has a sidekick/butler/kamikaze penguin bot named Sardine

♦ Repairs are extremely difficult to make- every piece needs to be custom built from rare alloys
♦ He actually needs the umbrella, or he'll rust in the rain

also, check out the previous two, Catwoman & Bane:

And Bats!

Next + Final Set: Joker & Batman
EDIT: K, ppl seem distraught that the next set is the final, but if there is this much interest in the series, I will do my best to add more characters after Bats and Joker- I just need to finish off some other projects before I continue past these 6 Gotham Gears- cool beans?

Penguin almost looks coal/steam driven...

" Invulnerable to any kind of electrical interference / system hacking ect."
is that because Penguin doesn't run on electricity? he looks like an old internal combustion engine.

So, is Nora Fries an AI by this point or something? Because without Nora, that Freeze-Bot's like a ticking time bomb, just waiting to explode into a murderous rage.

I love the penguin in this. He almost looks rather Steam Punkish.

Penguin is one of my favorite from this entire series, somehow.

Can you do a "Sardine, the Kamikaze penguin" stand-alone?
He just looks as cute as a button.
Like al penguins.

how would poison ivy work as a robot?
bionic-wolf Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
no, I think she wound be more "technoorganic" than an actual robot
ian1990 Featured By Owner May 3, 2013
robo freeze looks amazing!

The penguin was epic, look at it's tiny gears and flippers!

I was thinking for a two-face bot, perhaps some ultra-modern and sleek model would get half wrecked somehow, and would try to rebuild itself from junkyard parts, but accidentally install another AI within himself. They'd always be fighting for control, with one being normal, and one being insane from centuries of stasis. Aesthetically he'd be kinda like if you cut WALL-E and EVE in half and shoved the halves together, only humanoid and more combat oriented. Two-face is my favorite villain, so i was trying to find a way to make that work a little too hard, ha. But i like that.

I wonder how much backstory have you thought about for this world? Because you mention the Joker-bot wearing clothes that could have belonged to the real joker. This means that Gotham Gears takes place in a timeline where some sort of more normal Batman existed, perhaps a long time ago. It's intriguing, is all.

I have a sweet spot for Mr.freeze xD
Bunni89 Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Gotta say I love how you made penguin more steampunk and realistically adressed the advantages and disadvantages of custom parts :D
I love this series because the designs all show a lot of intelligence regarding how they'd function, its not just piles of robot parts thrown together cos they look cool :D

Great job. But may I suggest one more addition to the Freeze Gear? Mr. Freeze, aside from his intelligence and cold abilities is also one of batman's most physically imposing foes...perhaps this can translate as the the Freeze Gear's frame is constructed from a hyperalloy that makes the Gear much stronger and more resilient relative to its size?

Plus the addition to the penguin gear at being a gadgeteer (umbrella weapons and all that)?
ChasingArtwork Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
mmm, going to have to disagree: I like the version of freeze thats more hyper intelligent, one that attacks strategically and from a distance- kinda like a Professor Moriarty-chess playing type villain. always avoiding direct confrontation. there are enough batman villian brawlers without adding that to freeze.

agreed about penguin tho.
Greetings1 Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012
Yeah, I can see your point...

But with the long-lasting power cells of the freeze gear, what's the special property of the Ras al Ghul gear? A Recovery system?
ChasingArtwork Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
got it, cool aspect: of ras al ghul, creates new designs/bots and when he gets destroyed his programming transfers to another construct... or sumthin

Good Idead!

To me, Penguin has this steampunk look, while Freeze looks like one of the turrets from Portal.

I like the style, very unique for a Batman mytho. It would make nice for an animated feature, or a mini comic series.

cheers mate
randomeye713 Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2012
It never occured to me that Freeze and Penguin would share the same environment. Robo-Cobblepot
*reads edit*
I would love to see Poison Ivy as a gardening/agriculture drone that's gone rogue... that would be cool
*Reads the edit to joker*
Hey scarecrow is cool too, I guess he would broadcast a signal which would cause robots to overload their threat analysis matrix
dantetyler Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2012
This is truly incredible. I'd love to see poison ivy. :)
