Just wanted to draw a Space Battle. Since i was tiny, i havn´t drawn that kind of picture. So the last time i had tried this kind of picture was quiet a long time ago. I started for several times but never endet a pic of this, because i havn´t got the skills to finish it. Now i tired it again. I hope you like the result. My inspiration came from several animes and especially from the game "Project Silpheed". I think. it is the remake of a §D Scrolling shootem up game of the arly 90´s. I used to play that on my Mega-CD. Last Week, i saw the game and picked it up imediatly, because somenostalgic thoughts came up. Finally i have to say: "The original game was better"
Armored Unit produced by Chezernoff Heavy Industries. Used by certain military officer and the rebel of the Republic. A modified series of GiLRAM III for long range attack with more firepower and heaviest defense of all GiLRAM series. Its armor were coated with the material used for the light shield used by G-100. Due to its weight, it cannot move as agile as the previous series, its has the slowest movement speed of all the series. The Positron Gun of this series can destroy everything on its way, the energy can reach longer than 100,000 range. The positron gun consume a massive energy, to cover it, the G-310F was equiped with an energy reserve system on its back. The pulse interceptor was attached to repel any incoming intermediate energy attack. Chezernoff was also attached a rear weapon system to anticipate its vulnerability from back attack [due to the weight, this system scatter out a neutron energy to jamm enemy system and do a significant damage. The lastest version of shield for G-360F can withstand any attack, from a simple projectile to high particle attack. Upon impact with any energy attack, its shield battery activated to back up shield durability against it. It also can carry additional ammo for its projectile weapons. G-360F is a perfect option for Long range combat, the production cost is also very high, makes the price even higher, thats why this kind of GiLRAM are few can be found in the battlefield. Only experienced or ace pilots are allowed to ride it.
I've been making good progress lately on designs for my planned comic. This is Foruth Station, the space station operated orbiting a moon near the Gas Giant Foruth, in the Colony 12 system. It is operated by the Colonial Republic. There are two other nations that operate stations around Foruth.
The design is a modified O'Neill Cylinder- what is called "Island 3":
It is 10 km long, and is capable of housing several hundred thousand citizens comfortably, though at the moment only about 3000 people live there. The primary cylinder has the housing and light industry, the secondary cylinder has the agriculture and gas processing systems, along with manufacturing capabilities.
Because it is far from the system's sun, it does not use mirrors for light- instead it has internally generated lights. This also allows a sturdier outside structure for protection. The tall rod-like structures are radiators to allow for cooling.
I was able to show a couple of my new designs in this picture. Leaving the docking bay is a shuttle, and nearer to us is a space tug (the thing with the orange spheres and the little arms).
This station, and the space surrounding, is where most of the story will take place, and it is also where Mindy and her friends live- though she just arrived there.
The USS Calahan is a destroyer class space warship of the NATO forces.
Side Note: No name as given to me for this ship, so I picked one from the film "Threads". The USS Calahan is a naval vessel that rams the Soviet cruiser Kirov, adding to the tensions that lead to WW3. A rather dark "inside joke".
Default Series of the Republic Armored Unit. Produced by the Heavy Industry of Chezernoff based in Apollo. GiLRAM series as other Armored Vessels were developed from a basic humanoid frame. in this case, it has a good mobility of an Armored Vehicle and a strong defenses. A mass production armored vessel and used as the main force in ground and space force of the Republic. It was the first Armored Vessel of humanoid form for combat purposes. This armored vessel type are weak against artilerie unit in firing range and the air unit which are more agile. This type was designed for short to mid range combat. The G-100 was succesfully removed rebell forces opposing the Republic almost in every region. G-100 has spread throughout the universe used by many factions and militancy forces ever since. Its technology are also being duplicated by many industries and forces for their own cause.
More Manga/Anime styled art and thematically light-hearted.. I was going for a Makoto Shinkai look with the colors and mood I got pretty sloppy and rushed with the bike (which is made up, thus looks kinda weird) rendering. Sketched in PS, clean outline in SAI, colors in PS.
This is another older piece, well the pencils are, with a recent pimped out CG color treatment. This is a bit of concept image art for an animated TV series proposal our studio has in the works, one of several. The pencils on this piece were fully shaded and then treated with polyurethane, which tends to tint the paper yellow to sepia, depending on what type used and it also boosts the contrast of the pencils darks a great deal. Now of course going in with CG effectively makes that tinting pretty much moot but the contrast and dirty texture of the pencils remain giving the piece a rough dirty lived in feel. This piece is a prototype of future work in this project's setting which is a very neo noir dark dystopian urban landscape. This project is also very heavily littered with an art deco aesthetic hence the deco-ish diner. The little mech fella in there is a bio-organic entity of which populate the setting with human beings. I always liked this one so I thought I'd toss it up here.
