This is the Strike Carrier for Shadow Company the P.O.V (point of veiw) merc company from my book Fringe Wars. It is a self-sufficinet unit,capable of supportting a strikeforce for 6 to 8 months without resupply. Like other SC vessels and equipment it is equipped with a cloaking device. Like the title implies it is a carrier, but more along the lines of a Marine not Navel carrier its primary mission profile is amphibious assault (meaning for orbit to planetary surface). The SC operates 3 carriers of this type ( The Blade, The Hammer and the Shield).
Armaments : Main cannons (located on lower pylon) 12 hyper plasma cannons, 2 long range turrent mounted ion cannons (top), 7 medium range ion turrents, 44 torpedo tubes (22 forward,22 aft), and numerous anti mech/space craft turrents.
Okay so this is it. The full blown teaser to get you all excited about the turtles that my friends and I are working on. We will give updates about the project but this is the last full size image we will post up. So I hope you like it because we are super siked.
Stage 1- was Jeriel Burton laying out all four turtles for us. He picked the viewpoint and the basic position for the turtles
Stage 2- we each draw a different Turtle in our style
Stage 3- we swap off each others lines and Ink each others turtles.
Stage 4- Colors
Stage 5- Finishes
This is an experiment between 4 artists who all attending Columbus College of Art and Design(CCAD). We all love the Turtles, heck who doesn't? We are trading off between one another at different stages while still doing a complete series of Turtle pieces. We will be collecting all of our Turtles pieces together, along with favorites like Usagi Yojimbo, Casey Jones, Splinter, Shredder and April O'neal. There will be a collection of 30 Turtle prints plus all the concept work, sketches.
My 2nd story, Xeno Tech: XT, I contributed to our company, , first sketch card set.
This is the main villain of the story, Draksith (aka Wild Eye).
Draksith is labeled “ Wild Eye” by the U.S. Military task force designated for alien monitoring and weapons research ( the same tools Adam's Dad works for and the same one's that labeled him Xero (XT:00) when they first encounter him).
Draksith is the older of twins from the planet that the Xeno Tech (XT) nanites originated. He is actually the next in line to rule his home worlds empire. Wild Eye is Draksith's nanite battle suit form. Draksith's armor was his home worlds attempt to replicate the original designs, the very ones that Adam has in his possession. They're more primal, bestial, and lack the ability to continually produce energy like Adam's. Draksith's whole purpose is to secure the lost nanites from Adam by any means and return home to ensure further expansion of their empire and the nanite technology.
Wild Eye can shoot red energy beams from any of the eyes on his body. He can also generate a huge beam via his chest crystal, like Adam but without the one mile radius atomization ability. His strength, speed, and toughness are pretty close to Adam's. He can also drop out eyes, and replace them just as easily, all about him as he flies creating a mine field of floating eyes that can help him monitor and also still attack with energy beams. He can also focus energy from his spine spikes and focus them onto the two horns in front of his face, creating an extremely devastating energy beam.
