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.

In 1752 before Ben Franklin invented Pizza, Gameboy, the iPad2 or Mexican food he was contemplating how to conquer electricity. Being the genius he was he decided go get it at its source, this being Zeus. Strapping himself to a kite, and equipping some homemade lightning claws he ascended through the clouds and into the realm of the Gods to battle it out with Zeus. This is a painting capturing the exact moment the battle started.

Let´s Wikiattack!

Zeus (pronounced /ˈzuːs/ or /ˈzjuːs/; Ancient Greek: Ζεύς; Modern Greek: Δίας, Dias) is the King of the Gods in Greek mythology.[3] Zeus was viewed as a king who oversaw the universe. He assigns the various gods their roles. In the Homeric Hymns he is referred to as the chieftain of the gods. He is also called the "Father of Gods and men", according to Hesiod's Theogony. He ruled the Olympians of Mount Olympus in ways representative as both a father as head of the family and a king. He was the god of sky and thunder in Greek mythology. His symbols are the thunderbolt, eagle, bull, and oak. In addition to his Indo-European inheritance, the classical "cloud-gatherer" also derives certain iconographic traits from the cultures of the Ancient Near East, such as the scepter. Zeus is frequently depicted by Greek artists in one of two poses: standing, striding forward, with a thunderbolt leveled in his raised right hand, or seated in majesty.

Zeus was the child of Cronus and Rhea, and the youngest of his siblings. In most traditions he was married to Hera, although, at the oracle of Dodona, his consort was Dione: according to the Iliad, he is the father of Aphrodite by Dione.He is known for his erotic escapades. These resulted in many godly and heroic offspring, including Athena, Apollo and Artemis, Hermes, Persephone (by Demeter), Dionysus, Perseus, Heracles, Helen, Minos, and the Muses (by Mnemosyne); by Hera, he is usually said to have fathered Ares, Hebe and Hephaestus.

Cronus sired several children by Rhea: Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades, and Poseidon, but swallowed them all as soon as they were born, since he had learned from Gaia and Uranus that he was destined to be overcome by his own son as he had overthrown his own father— an oracle that Zeus was to hear and avert. But when Zeus was about to be born, Rhea sought Gaia to devise a plan to save him, so that Cronus would get his retribution for his acts against Uranus and his own children. Rhea gave birth to Zeus in Crete, handing Cronus a rock wrapped in swaddling clothes, which he promptly swallowed.

After reaching manhood, Zeus forced Cronus to disgorge first the stone (which was set down at Pytho under the glens of Parnassus to be a sign to mortal men, the Omphalos) then his siblings in reverse order of swallowing. In some versions, Metis gave Cronus an emetic to force him to disgorge the babies, or Zeus cut Cronus' stomach open. Then Zeus released the brothers of Cronus, the Gigantes, the Hecatonchires and the Cyclopes, from their dungeon in Tartarus, killing their guard, Campe. As a token of their appreciation, the Cyclopes gave him thunder and the thunderbolt, or lightning, which had previously been hidden by Gaia. Together, Zeus and his brothers and sisters, along with the Gigantes, Hecatonchires and Cyclopes overthrew Cronus and the other Titans, in the combat called the Titanomachy. The defeated Titans were then cast into a shadowy underworld region known as Tartarus. Atlas, one of the titans that fought against Zeus, was punished by having to hold up the sky.

After the battle with the Titans, Zeus shared the world with his elder brothers, Poseidon and Hades, by drawing lots: Zeus got the sky and air, Poseidon the waters, and Hades the world of the dead (the underworld). The ancient Earth, Gaia, could not be claimed; she was left to all three, each according to their capabilities, which explains why Poseidon was the "earth-shaker" (the god of earthquakes) and Hades claimed the humans that died.

Gaia resented the way Zeus had treated the Titans, because they were her children. Soon after taking the throne as king of the gods, Zeus had to fight some of Gaia's other children, the monsters Typhon and Echidna. He vanquished Typhon and trapped him under a mountain, but left Echidna and her children alive.

Feliz fiestas patrias a todos mis hermanos chilenos, les deseo un muy feliz 18 de septiembre :) Conmemorando esta vez no con un personaje de herencia española, sino con uno de nuestros pueblos originarios. Ojala y en medida que avancemos como pais valoremos de donde venimos para poder comprender hacia donde vamos.


This image is based in one of the heroes of my land: Lautaro. it was done long time ago, when I spent a couple of months in a hospital, recovering of a pancreas failure, it was a dificult time, but painting in the hospital was really fun and distract me a lot from pain :) I hope you like it.

LETS WIKIATTACK

Lautaro (Mapudungun: Lef-Traru "swift hawk") (1534–April 29, 1557) was the young Mapuche military commander in the four-year Arauco War (Araucanian War) in Chile. His people undertook to expel the Spanish colonizers. The army under Lautaro's command inflicted crushing defeats and huge death tolls on Spanish forces despite having far inferior weaponry. As a boy, Lautaro had deliberately allowed himself to be captured by the Spanish in order to learn their secrets, and made no attempt to escape until he felt he had learned enough. In any case, he fled twice, in 1550 and for good in 1552. In 1553 (the year Lautaro turned 19), the Mapuches convened to decide how to respond to the Spanish invasion. The convention decided upon war. The toqui (leader) Caupolicán chose Lautaro as vice toqui because he had served as a page in the Spanish cavalry, and thereby possessed knowledge of how to defeat the mounted conquistadors. Lautaro introduced use of horses to the Mapuche[citation needed] and designed better combat tactics. He organized a large, cohesive army—a military formation unfamiliar to the Mapuche.

After the second rout at Concepción, Lautaro desired to attack Santiago. He found scant support for this plan from his troops, who soon dwindled to only 600, but he carried on. In October 1556 his northward march reached the Mataquito River, where he established a fortified camp at Peteroa. In the Battle of Peteroa he repulsed attacking Spanish forces under the command of Diego Cano, and later held off the larger force commanded by Pedro de Villagra. Being advised that still more Spaniards were approaching, Lautaro retreated towards the Maule River. With the Spaniards in hot pursuit he was forced to retire beyond the Itata River. From there he launched another campaign towards Santiago when Villagra's army passed him by on the way to the save the remaining Spanish settlements in Araucanía. Lautaro had chosen to give Villagra's force the slip and head for the city to attack it.Despite the Mapuches' stealth, the city's leaders learned of the advance and sent a small expedition to thwart it, buying time for word to be sent to Villagra to return to the city from the south. The Spanish forces met in the field, and from a member of the local ethnos, the Picunche, they learned the disposition of Lautaro's camp. At dawn, on April 29, 1557 the conquistadors launched a surprise attack from the hills of Caune, obtaining a decisive victory in the Battle of Mataquito in which Lautaro was killed early in the fighting. After the defeat of his army, his head was cut off and displayed in the plaza of Santiago. He was close to final victory when he was killed in battle at around 23 years of age.

GO GO wiki-attack!!
Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen (2 May 1892 – 21 April 1918) was a German fighter pilot known as the "Red Baron". He was the most successful flying ace of the Imperial German Army Air Service (Luftstreitkräfte) during World War I, being officially credited with 80 confirmed air combat victories. Richthofen was a member of an aristocratic family with many famous relatives.

Freiherr (literally "Free Lord") is not a given name but a German aristocratic title, equivalent to a baron in other countries and the origin of Richthofen's most famous nickname: "The Red Baron". Red was the color of his plane. The German translation of Red Baron is De-der_Rote_Baron.ogg "der Rote Baron". Richthofen is today known by this nickname even in Germany, although during his lifetime he was more often described in German as Der Rote Kampfflieger, (variously translated as the The Red Battle Flyer or The Red Fighter Pilot). This name was used as the title of Richthofen's 1917 "autobiography."

Richthofen's other nicknames include "Le Diable Rouge" ("Red Devil") or "Le Petit Rouge" ("Little Red") in French, and the "Red Knight" in English.

Richthofen was killed just after 11 a.m. on 21 April 1918, while flying over Morlancourt Ridge, near the Somme River.

>>>EDIT: Added backstory and retouched image!<<<

For those who remember this piece of mine: [link] and left cool story ideas about the origins of such a "heretical" IG design, thank you! I've been considering different plots and the whole Tau engineering collaboration + Gue'vesa auxillary idea seemed the most plausible and exciting for me.

Here's an updated story on its origins:

The Phobos Pattern was originally designed by an eccentric, albeit well-meaning techpriest on a forgeworld along the dark fringes of Imperium space. It was built in memory of his son, who died on an icy moon while serving as a Imperial Guard conscript in some forgotten campaign against Tyranids.

His labour of love, the Phobos Pattern, a semi autonomous exo-suit, was designed for normal human proportions, and for deployment amongst the Imperial Guard. The suit was not intended to replace or even come close to an Astartes armour, but act as a 'force multiplier' to bolster IG ranks and to allow once disabled soldiers to fight as equals alongside their own. Once complete, the Phobos MK1 plans were presented to the Imperium, and deemed absolutely heretical. As a result, his Forgeworld was to be swept by Space Marine kill teams in a purge mission. The Older brother sent to kill the younger brother as ordered by their Father.

The small Astartes force that was sent to wipe them out realised the visionary aspect of the project during the mission briefing itself, but continued their mission without question for fear of being labelled traitors.

The IG test-pilot force that comprised of young and old, able-bodied and paraplegic, all suited up in Phobos Pattern armour and fought back bravely to preserve their project; as well as to prove their undying love for the Imperium's future.

Eventually, the Astartes force was reduced to the last Marine, a Sargeant who called down an orbital nuclear bombardment when the mission was deemed a failure.

In his final moments he looks on as a shuttle escapes the facility and into the warp, and with it, the construction template for the Phobos Pattern armour. That was his only act of defiance to the Emperor in his lifetime as a Space Marine, one that he hoped would help pave the way to a brighter future for the Imperium.

The shuttle emerged from the warp years later, and found itself in Tau space. The Tau, learning of its origins and potential, openly embraced the Phobos Pattern prototype and began additional R&D work to implement it into their Gue'vesa/Human Auxillary force.

***END TRANSMISSION***

__________________________________________________

In this scenario, the Tau combat systems research/construction facility that manufactures the Phobos Pattern armour itself, also maintains an actual Tyranid hatchery on location to be used in live combat trials. As such, they operate on a remote population-free moon due to security concerns.

A major security breach later, and the only surviving Tau (the facility commandant) and his trusted aide and Gue'vesa hold off the escaped Tyranid specimens till a rapid response lockdown crew arrives. The facility's personnel sacrificed themselves to buy him time to download the Pattern construction plan and hotfoot it to the extraction point, and he is clearly determined to see the mission(and their valiant sacrifice) through. The Tau force evacuating them are a special stealth-only anti-'Nid detachment sporting customised gear: XV25 suits and Super-Remora drones as well as a Longbow Heavy Sniper drone to neutralise hardened specimens.

"Bear with the pain, commandant! Hammerhead is inbound. The plans must survive for the greater good!"

For the greater good!

So with the release of the new Farsight Supplement and .pdf material across the internet, thought I'd show off the cover in its entirety! Big shout out to Darius Hinks at Games Workshop for being my AD/producer on this!

The Tau hold a special place in my heart because it speaks to the space commie in me proud asian and admirer of mobile suit wearing space samurai in me. When approached to do this cover, the brief was to try and match the great Raymond Swanland's dynamism, especially with his work on backgrounds. I tried to do it in my own way, bringing a blend of what I'd have liked to see into play to hopefully achieve a similar result without having to try and duplicate his technique. I think its a great intellectual exercise and challenge as an illustrator to stay true to an art brief/established vision of an IP while offering your own personal perspective to it, without recycling too much of others' genius, as they say. :)

Other bits for my inner fanboy:
-I always wondered about optic camoflauge for the Tau. Given the nature of the stealth-field generator([link], I imagined it skirting across a bright battlefield and almost appearing like a prism at times because of how many facets the nodes create and as such, how much ambient light overload it might carry over to each other detection/ projection point... and the stealth field computer not being able to keep up with calculating the reflection angles accurately given all the atmospheric phenomena occuring... resulting in chroma shifting, or at least just looking like a poor optical feed at the least. Spazzing all over the place with multiple wavelengths of light travelling about. Again, all this was mainly as an excuse so I can work in some colour to pull out the battlesuits from the background and perhaps offer some 'grittiness' where technology meets battlefield conditions.
-A long time ago I saw by IgnusDei and it left a lasting impression on me :). That idea of Farsight's Dawnblade literally facing the rising sun, was awesome! When composing this image that was the first idea that came to mind, but this time with Farsight with his back against the sun, offering a sensible, tactical narrative as well. I did a more graphic side-view of Farsight for readability/dynamism sake, but if I had more time or skill I would have preferred a more frontal shot of him descending upon the Ork hordes.
-Custom drones with winglets on the bottom, kind of a 'baby' remora.
-XV25s unloading at point blank /decloaking and about to plow into a sea of greenskins, in the famous Farsight CQB style. Dunno about you but the ensuing carnage to me seems tactically worth it. :p

Anyways, I hope the Tau fans amongst you enjoy this tribute to the Bane of Greenskins, Commander Farsight.

Now that Galaxies is officially defunct, I thought it safe to post some of my favourite illustrations here for posterity sake..!

Working on this franchise for close to 2 years really helped me grow as a creative and allowed me to explore many aspects of the craft-- its not often you get to play the role of illustrator, story-teller and designer within a single commission. It was truly rewarding in hindsight and more often that not, a very humbling experience when you witness the sheer quality and passion of other fellow creatives working on the same project, really inspires you to stretch yourself beyond the usual bounds!

While not used in the movie, this was going to be for a side-spin off series for Sucker Punch, on how these samurai's time travelled to mess shit up.

So I was like, "Why not have a Samurai cutting a military humvee in half?"

And they were like "Lol ok."

Unfortunately it had to be PG-13, so I couldn't show any gore in the image. :(

Enjoy!

Boba Fett. Disintegrating some dude.

I grew up LOVING this guy. I have a collection of nerdy Boba Fett stuff surrounding my desk. Think he's one of the coolest designs out there, and just a badass character.

Probably even my main inspiration behind LMS, as he is a badass bounty hunter.

Well enjoy guys, had a blast doing this piece, even though the detail killed me!

And remember...

"No disintegrations!"

3 months since my last submission, sorry for being so quiet lately. I've been working on my art book since November so my attention was focused there. Now I need to resume freelance work as my book funding is running out, gotta pay those bills. So, you'll finally see me resume regular art submission to DA, lots of commission work on the way.

This is a commission for :iconalpha-dilophosaurus: Alpha-Dilophosaurus
Aliens are sieging earth and here Russian forces hold out in their own land. Troops equipped with heavy body armor and powerful rifles cover a 4 legged tank that has been immobilized. In the distance along the front lines the troops are meeting similar resistance as their enemies prove difficult to bring down.

Another quick paint between commissions to keep me sane, I think I'm getting down a nice balance.

Here's the Star Protectorate flagship with an escort fleet. It is the most powerful ship on it's side of known space. Rarely deployed into battle, it stands watch over the protectorate, a deterrent to any invasion.

Soldiers from all over the world have been battling zombies for the past 5 months, these surviving fighters are highly trained, but are overwhelmed by the odds of countless undead around the city, a war that humanity may not win, but these men and women are willing to fight for their planet. World War Z inspired.

Added a tactical ninja there with his katana and MP7 PDW, U.S Recon with his semi-automatic M39 EMR, RU Recon his dual handguns, a M1911 and Glock 19, few U.S soldiers armed with M4A1s and M249 SAW, in the background an FBI agent with his M4A1, and an RU Assault Medic armed with his AKM assault rifle, S.A.S was there with his MP5A3 but was hidden from view, only seen out of view shooting the zombie with the reflective vest in the head. A UH-60 Blackhawk in the air with spotlights shining the streets giving soldiers a clear view of the undead.

A few weeks ago me and Levente paid a visit to The tower of London, and while looking at some of these old armours and weapons I knew that I wanted to make a concept on the same theme, but I didn't want to make another fight scene. So a couple of days ago I finally got the idea to make a clean and stylish museum concept where I could include some of these things, but as it turned out I focused most of my energy on making the room look nice than having loads of armours and stuff.
This is done from scratch without any photo refs or plates, which means it took a little longer than usual (two days). On the other hand it's really great practice. The lightning was a bitch on this one and could, as always, be better/more realistic. But my only concern with these pieces is that they look good as a whole and that they deliver the atmoshpere, the right look and the feeling of presence.

I saved the process for it and I'm gonna try and make a decent tutorial out of it.

Thanks, and have a nice weekend folks!
