I always try to nab the trooper cards before anyone else. I recall being very taken by the bleached and cross-processed art direction of Black Hawk Down and had to do a few cards in a similar feel. What better than with one involving rappelling special forces stormies..

This is now a dead project (well, it's dead-ish. It was a Poser Pro 2010 issue and opens in later/earlier versions). I had meant to make a picture of Roy Fokker buzzing Hikaru's Vermilion Squadron with a detailed background, but the Poser file will no longer open, and this pic was the last one I was able to render. Maybe because the un-optimized Valkyries combined have an insane number of material zones.
Although I made these main characters' Valkyrie paint schemes long ago for fun, I had never really intended to depict canon Macross pilots themselves.
I should note that I borrowed the VF-1S head from the Battroid by spanki and mechmaster, www.sharecg.com/v/49933/browse… because I haven't built that head yet.
Rendered in Poser Pro 2010 (unfortunately), Modeled in 3ds max.
