He's one of America's most bad-ass presidents....Teddy Roosevelt. Not only did Teddy Roosevelt give a speech with a bullet in his chest, but what many people don't know is he slaughtered many bigfoot in his time...this is a picture of one of those events.

Thomas Jefferson was never much of a warrior history tells us, but yet again history is wrong. This is an image of one of the many attempts by Jefferson to battle all the manliest animals on earth while trying to teach them the ways of America.

FDR, arguable one of the best presidents of all time. Known for his program "The New Deal" and other such accomplishments, what is not not known is his many victories in battle against many different types of enemies. FDR possessed great power and technology as can be seen from his transforming wheel chair in which he slayed many foes.

The Aurelians have a penchant for upgrading fighters with specially customized technology. A prominent example is the F-16X Gyrfalcon. Although its basic design concept dates back to the 1980’s, it was only later when serious development was considered. A working prototype was introduced in 2004 as a next generation F-16 variant. It was jointly developed by the Halberd Corporation and Grunder Industries. The type is essentially a rebuild of older F-16C airframes, with lighter materials and integration of modern avionics. Its distinctive external features are the addition of canard foreplanes, reshaped vents and minor updates to the control surfaces. Its avionics have also been substantially upgraded, with an Active Electronically Scanned Array Radar and integrated tracking systems as major highlights. The F-16X also offers a larger engine with increased power and an option for thrust vectoring capability.

The Aurelian Air Force is currently upgrading its remaining F-16C force to F-16X standard. It is expected to last several years and will be a mix of upgraded airframes and a lot of sixty new builds. Foreign export is also a possibility, with Belka and Emmeria showing interest in the type.

Although the X-32 lost to the X-35 in the JSF Project, Grunder Industries expressed interest in further development of the former. The firm purchased the rights to the design and in a modestly funded effort, redesign work occurred in the following years. The design was optimized as a carrier based multirole aircraft (The CTOL and STOVL versions were deemed unnecessary). This was a response over concerns with the F-35C in naval operations. The Lightning IIís single engine design was one of the compromises taken to meet its requirement. Meanwhile, the reworked X-32 would capitalize on this aspect. By adding an additional engine, the airframe eventually morphed into a different design altogether, becoming considerably leaner and sleeker. In retrospect, the new aircraft only had a passing resemblance to the original. It only retained its basic layout and design features.

Tests showed considerable promise and a go-ahead was given for production. Now renamed the F/A-32A Erne, it would serve as an alternative to the F-35C in the export market. It offered all the usual refinements found on most 5th generation platforms. The Erneís major highlights include its EOTS, AESA Radar and a 2d vectored nozzle. Overall, its multirole capability makes it an ideal replacement for the aging F/A-18C/D models. The Erne proved to be a lucrative effort for Grunder, with many F-35C buyers ordering the F/A-32A as well.


This aircraft is basically a de-evolved version of the Erne seen in Ace Combat 3. This is my humble attempt at transforming the ungainly demonstrator into the solid performing machine seen in the game. I also give my kudos to JDX as well, his blueprints were integral in my illustrations. :thumbsup:

Erusea remains as one of the largest operators of the F-14, with variants operated both by the Navy and Air Force. The bulk of the these aircraft are more than two hundred elderly F-14A models which have been slowly replaced or upgraded to F-14B and D standard since the 1980’s. Despite this modernization effort, FEAF and FEN Tomcats lagged behind the technology curve of their contemporaries. This was proved true after considerable losses during the debacle of the Continental War. With a less than stellar combat record and high attrition, the situation for Erusea’s F-14 community seemed dire. The withdrawal of the aging fleet was planned to start in 2008.

However, a proposal for a substantially upgraded version of the Tomcat was one of the incidental results of the Wyvern Project. The Erusean Air and Space Administration (EASA), saw the potential of integrating some of the X-02’s new technology and systems into an existing airframe. In an attempt to keep the Cats in front line service, EASA’s proposal was to modernize the remaining F-14 fleet under new specifications. By all accounts, the upgrade project would incorporate the new technology and design know-how from the Wyvern. Support from the Erusean Government and Tomcat community was considerable and the go-ahead was given shortly after.

Dubbed, the F-14ER, (ER stands for Erusea) this indigenous upgrade aimed to keep the Erusean Tomcats competitive for the foreseeable future. It is essentially a rebuild of the entire airframe with most major structures replaced with lighter composite materials. It offered a reshaped wing glove for enhanced supersonic and dogfighting capability. A newer and lighter canopy was also introduced, improving visibility. Additional modifications were also made in various parts of the airframe, with revised panels, reshaped flaps and other aerodynamic improvements. The type’s avionics (based from the X-02) were also upgraded accordingly, with a modern glass cockpit, an upgraded APG-71 and an integrated FLIR system. The engines were replaced by a variant of the Halberd ST-160N Engine. It provides thrust vectoring and supercruise capability. Later blocks of the F-14ER received AESA Radar, which is now standard in the upgrade.

Over ninety airframes have been converted to ER standard with more to follow in the next several years. Despite the relatively high cost of the upgrade, it is considerably less when compared to a single new-build X-02.

I've been designing a character for some time now who uses an Alchemy-like power. I took the word "Technomancy" from a game book I had...I can't recall which, but techno mostly for the fact that it has circuit-board-like components. Either way, he uses circles like this to create, attack, defend, etc. I may come up with a better name, but for the meantime, this'll do. I also have to work on the runes...those ones were almost literally thrown together, although I am fond of the beaker-like components.

Any thoughts on it?

Mark 2 of the Original DEM: Ouroboros: [link] This I feel is a far more up-to date version in terms of my style & abilities, although when digitally editing this one I was a trifle lazy.

The alternate version is here:

I think it illustrates what I'm trying to get across much better, if only through the use of colour.

A drawing I did late one night. I was watching Fullmetal Alchemist, & had a Starcream Transformer beside me (from Transformers ROTF), & I was inspired by both Starscream's tattoos & Scar's (from FMA) tattoos. So, I drew this. It's obviously meant to look somewhat mechanical, & the mech-Ouroboros & cross were an obvious nod to the "God" part of "Dues Ex Machina". In all honesty, Ouroboros & the cross were an afterthought. The cross came in handy for covering the hole the compass put in the paper, however (you didn't think i did the big circles freehand, did you?), so I'm pleased with the end result. Tell me what you think!!!

*update* As of November 28th 2010, two people that I'm aware of (they contacted me) have gotten this design done as a tattoo. Just thought I'd post that little tidbit* :)

**UPDATE** here is a link to the more up-to-date version: [link]

Should be sized to hold 2 twinkies both based on the slogan and the name "Fancy Lads".

Only 2 more left until I have every food item in the game. print on posterboard or cardstock, cut, score, fold, glue, then stuff two twinkies in and you should be good to go! twinkies not included.

print 2 copies on 11x17 inch paper. glue to posterboard with one side overlapping. cut, score, fold, glue, enjoy! Sized to hold a single serve banquet brand salisbury steak meal while maintaining the original size ratio.

NOT satisfied with the salisbury steak placement. could be more like the in game placement. making some home made steaks to re-shoot the photo. EVERYTHING ELSE is perfect. The fonts used in game are RAGE italic and Rockwell.

Vehicles loosely based on the 1986 NASA NERVA 2 INterplanetary spacecraft design. This piece actually started out as a test of my new Mk II Mars close-up terrain, using Mars Orbital Laser Altimetry Data to deform a geodesic metaform 1/8th sphere. Then I put another (slightly larger) 1/8 sphere over it to create the atmosphere. Then inspiration struck, and this is the result. I all ready had modeled the NERVA 2 vehicle some time ago.

Modeled and rendered in Lightwave 8.5, with touch up in Photoshop.

Thanks for taking a look!

En-Route to her rendezvous with Comet Murasaki-Tate III, the Deep Spacecraft COURAGEOUS flies by the Near Earth Asteroid 2092-3087, nicknamed "Frigid Nelson", in an apparent homage to Captain Dame Daphne Richardson's ex-husband. An impactor cloud of microprobes has been released and will make contact with the asteroid a few hours after COURAGEOUS's closest approach.
Built and rendered in Lightwave 8.5, with post work done in Photoshop CS2.
Thanks for taking a look!

Argosy 1 and 2 are accelerated into a Marsbound transfer orbit by their NERVA nuclear boosters. This burn adds 3.8 meters per second to the Earth's orbital speed around the sun, breaking the ships out of Earth orbit and injecting them on a long elleptical solar orbit. Most of the boost phase takes place in orbital night. Dawn comes as the combined ships rise in their outbound trajectory. They will be in continuous daylight from now until they enter orbit around Mars.

Rendered and modeled in Lightwave 10 and Photoshop CS 3

Thanks for taking a look!

Illo of how many Americans don't know US history.

*Note*

I know Hitler's armband is on the wrong side. Since I'm fudging history anyway I think I can move it to make it visible.
