For those of you that do not know what the heck is with all these sketches and messy looking pile of killing machine swarm... These are concepts for my personal tabletop gaming project called "Tactical Warfield" or "Tac-War" or "TW". Having some trouble recently and can't do much update, but still, i'm going to finish the concepts untill it's really ready. Feel free to ask any questions, i'll gladly answer it.
Okay, to the list then: 1. Light Ground Unit 2. Light AA Unit 3. Commander Mech 4. Heavy Gunship 5. Scout Drone 6. Main Mech Unit 7. Commander Mech's Arm Detail 8. Artillery concept #1 9. Heavy Mech concept #1 10. Heavy Mech concept #2 11. Light Fighter 12. Heavy Transport --------------------Update---------------- 13. Light Fast Attack Sub 14. Submersible Battleship 15. Multi-Role Fighter-Bomber 16. Multipurpose Light Vehicle (serves as an AA or Light Infantry Fighting Vehicle like Humvees) 17. AA Module for Multipurpose Light Vehicle 18. Artillery concept #2 19. Airborne Scout Drone
One of my Christmas presents this year, the Shooting History Gashappon set containing five fighters from various shooters. From left to right... The Silver Hawk from Taito's Darius Gaiden, the R-9 Arrowhead (with its Force and Bits) from Irem's R-Type, the Vic Viper T301 (with Option) from Konami's Gradius 5, the Vic Viper Metarion (also with Option) from Gradius 2, and last but not least, the OF-1 Daedalus (with Pods) from Irem's Image Fight.
I spent half of Christmas Day putting them together and are the first Gashappon I've ever owned. ^^ I hope they'll make more sets with the other Vipers and ships from other series. ^^
Aside from the fact that I think some people think I can't do anything else, and the fact I've been meaning to do this for a while, I decided I'd do a little doodle of Gradius's Vic Viper.
I guess it came out alright, aside from the fact I woulda liked it to have felt a little more...oomph from it. I think it just might be the fact it lacks a background. Anyways, I just figure I'd share this. I guess I can do inanimate objects well enough.
Enjoy I guess. Maybe I will color this someday. It does seem promising I suppose.
I want to illustrate the evolution of the Vic Viper spacecraft over the years - the three main versions as seen on the cover to the new official guide, the anime version which is quite different and this new Victory Viper spaceship from the Yu-Gi-Oh card. I also have some doodles of the "crappy expendable yellow ship" from the anime.
Here is an attempt at the T301 that I was entirely dissatisfied with. Drawing is okay but the placement of the various bits and bobs is completly off. The wings should slant down and I think the missiles should be wider apart. I'm not sure about the cockpit placement either. Also there needs to be more of a colour contrast between the metal surfaces and the blackish banding around the forward "prongs" and on the wings.
Not a bad drawing, but one that illustrates the problems I will need to overcome if I am to master drawing this spaceship.
It wouldn't be right to make a bunch of ROBOCOP coin-op Bead sprites and not do an ED-209 from the same coin-op game, so.....here it is, ROBOCOP's original robotica antagonist: ED-209 from the arcade coin-op version of ROBOCOP by Data East in 1988 from JAPAN (here is the YouTube video of the Original Coin-op Game : [link] )
