This piece was inspired by a passage from former SR-71 pilot Major Brian Shul's book "Sled Driver". In it he describes a night flight......

"One moonless night, while flying a routine training mission over the Pacific, I wondered what the sky would look like from 84,000 feet if the cockpit lighting were dark. While heading home on a straight course, I slowly turned down all of the lighting, reducing the glare and revealing the night sky. Within seconds, I turned the lights back up, fearful that the jet would know and somehow punish me. But my desire to see the sky overruled my caution, I dimmed the lighting again. To my amazement, I saw a bright light outside my window. As my eyes adjusted to the view, I realized that the brilliance was the broad expanse of the Milky Way, now a gleaming stripe across the sky. Where dark spaces in the sky had usually existed, there were now dense clusters of sparkling stars Shooting stars flashed across the canvas every few seconds. It was like a fireworks display with no sound. I knew I had to get my eyes back on the instruments, and reluctantly I brought my attention back inside. To my surprise, with the cockpit lighting still off, I could see every gauge, lit by starlight."

The SR-71 Blackbird still remains one of the most incredible airplanes to ever fly. Designed to fly at speeds well in excess of 2,000 MPH and at altitudes over 80,000 feet, the Blackbird was untouchable. Almost 4,000 missiles were launched at her by hostile forces in an attempt to bring her down - none did. The Blackbird defeated every one.

Once in a while you get those crazy passionate clients that actually have vision and know what they want. Gregor is certainly one of them and it was a blast doing these characters and mechanicals for his RPG universe.

This would be the Battlesuit from the Colonial Defence Squadron. They are basically zero G trained rapid response/SWAT teams.

This one is the beast of the lot. He is only called down from the dropship in absolute crisis moments. Or if they need to give terrorists in the colonies a hard time. One idea I had initially was to have a WSO (weapons Systems Officer codename: Wizard) ride with him in tandem. That idea was scrapped, but it would be cool to somehow imagine him having a second pair of eyes from a remote location in the form of a Psionics officer. Maybe there could be a signal amplifier/transmitter to link a Psionic WSO from the dropship to him, letting him focus on combat while she takes care of the weapon systems and other critical functions of the suit. It would basically be like what the crews of twin-seater fighter aircraft do. One pilot and one
gunner/assistant.

Project Daedalus was a study from the British planetary society in 1973 to design a plausible interstellar unmanned spacecraft. The design had to use current or near-future technology and reach its destination within a human lifespan (50-60 years), however the probe was to be unmanned.

The target then choosen was Barnards star at 6 lightyears because it was then believed that it had at least one large planet, until this day this planet has not been found while we know at least 300 other so called exo-planets. The closest star we know today that has planets is Epsilon Eridani, at 10.5 lightyears away a sure target for future exploration.

The original plan called for an orbital assembly of the spaceship, but at an whopping 55000 tons this is quite an starship, for example you would need almost 2000 Spaceshuttle launches to lift al the materials and fuel from earth, to make matters worse, the main component of the fuel would be Helium-3, something of wich we have very little on Earth. The moon has more and there is even more to be found in the atmosphere of Jupiter.

Building Daedalus
The two stages will be build in orbit around the moon, an small amount of helium-3 will be used to launch the first and the second stage towards Jupiter where an extensive mining-operation in the atmosphere of Jupiter will provide for the necessary 50.000 tons of helium-3 for the trip towards Epsilon Eridani.

About the picture:
Ooohh shudder, it has been done with Bryce, yup, Bryce is cheap and in the right hands you can still make stunning pieces of art with it.

The model in this picture has been modelled completely within Bryce, usually downloaded models don't fit right in the scene so i am better of making those myself, wich also adds to your own flavour.

This is the dropship used by the Colonial Defence Squadron. They are basically zero G trained rapid response/SWAT teams.

Wanted to go for a menacing look, but still somehow reserved as well, in line with the CDS aesthetic. (they are police, not military) Gave the front profile a 'gaping maw' look when the cargo ramp is lowered, I was thinking a hound of hell unloading her precious babies onto the battlefield (right..). I felt the rotating neck segment could make her seem even more animalistic, on top of giving it a functional purpose, which is namely for balance and better vision for the pilots in confined urban zones.

Ramp opens to the rear too, for more versatility during unloading. Usually that's where the Battlesuit is parked though, so it might be a really tight squeeze trying to get out the back. *shrugs*

The Kingdom of American States had a tumultuous early history. Having won their independence from Britain in the dying years of the 18th century the thirteen colonies joined in a loose coalition of states. Unfortunately their coalition was flawed; the states fought constantly, both in the political arenas of federal government and, occasionally, on the battlefield. Their overlapping claims to territory, disputes over slavery and the disagreement about how the federal government should be organised caused constant friction.

This enmity existed between the states themselves as well as between the state governments and the federal government in Philadelphia - it was rare for Virginia to listen to the decisions made by the Continental Congress less than 250 kilometres away, and the rest of the states wavered between obedience and outright defiance.

It was decided something must be done. Either the United States remained strong together, or divided and became weak. In Europe Kings and nobility laughed at the Americans - "Their 'Republican Experiment' has failed!" they cried, "No common, elected man could rule a country!". In America, many people agreed.

An absolute monarchy was out of the question, so America must have a monarch tempered by elected bodies and meritocratic institutions. But even after the Americans had decided on the constitution, who would be King?

Virginia and its southern allies championed George Washington - their hero of the revolutionary war! The northern states disagree - Virginia had too much power as it was without their statesmen sitting on the throne! Again the nation was split, until one man stepped forward.

Christian Friedrich Karl Alexander of the German noble house of Hohenzollern was not an unknown to the American people. In the last few years of the revolution Prussia had thrown in its lot with America, hoping to damage the powerful Britain and, with a little luck, gain a new ally. Their contribution to the war was small, but significant. A handful of men under the command of a low-ranking nobleman, Christian Friedrich.

Though late on the scene, Christian Friedrich's contribution to the war was disproportionately large. He took command of a small force of volunteers and was fundamental to the American victory in the Florida campaign. He wasn't the greatest hero of the war, but he wasn't from any state in particular and was liked by statesmen across the nation. He spoke English and French with no real accent from his native German, and his Spanish was passable - though he could have only spoken Chinese for all the Spanish-speaking Floridians cared.

The states were in agreement. They had a central government strong enough to decisively solve disputes between the states; they had a modern, centralised military to protect the nation; and they had a King.

The hardships were not over for the Americans, though. In the mid 1840s, as Europe was wracked by revolutions calling for more reasonable government and greater democracy, so too did the people of America call for action.

In the north many stood with the King - known as the Imperialists they favoured a strong, federal government headed by a powerful monarch. They believed in the American state and the power of a nation over the rights of the people. In the south there were the plantation owners and those who were pro-slavery - many called for the preservation of states' rights, some even believed it.

At first it looked like the states were to be locked in a political stalemate. Then the people called for some else, a sentiment much more powerful than thinly-veiled support for slavery. They called for a republic.

It wasn't just the south that rose, but the west too. The Oregon territory was home to some of America's greatest republican thinkers, and their people rose up in support of their ideals of reasonable government and freedom from tyranny.

The fighting was brutal and bloody. Brother fought brother, fathers fought their sons. Thousands died to move the line a mere inch, and fields and cities were burnt down and laid bare. Both sides took their share of the casualties until, one by one, everything the south had going for it started to fall apart.

Mexico, which had covertly supplied the revolutionaries with funding and arms, had to withdraw its support in the face of domestic rebels. Britain, who had remained staunchly neutral, threw its weighty opinion behind the Imperialists - it did little to help the war in the field, but it did much to sway opinion. The people of East Florida, who had not joined the revolution but had it imposed upon them, rose up against the republicans. In the West the republican armies were destroyed by Maj. Gen. Thomas Williamson's Army of Montana, and the Army of Virginia under Maj. Gen. Josias "Buffalo" Krieger routed the republican forces and captured Richmond. It took less than a year for the Imperialist forces to push their way down the Mississippi and force the republicans to surrender.

Britain's official backing of the imperialists during the war was a surprise. America had revolted from under British rule and they had remained rivals throughout America's history. Cynics claimed that the British merely supported the Imperialists in order to get in their good books, hoping for something in return once the war was over. Others claimed the British merely wanted to prevent the republicans from winning, fearing a similar revolution in Britain itself. Both of these reasons are true, but there were other factors that contributed towards Britain's decision. Many British politicians were staunchly abolitionist and had been appalled that the Kingdom of American States had not outlawed slavery entirely - seeing that one side of the war supported slavery, they supported the other. In addition to this more pragmatic British politicians observed America's local dominance of North America and saw that they could not hope to regain control of the region. Seeing the American States' as the "natural leader of North America" they hoped they could exert more influence over the world, as well as expand their trade empire, if America were their friend and ally.

In the latter half of the 19th century Britain truly came into its own as a world power. The dominance of the British empire over the globe was so effective and absolute that contemporary historians came to refer to the era as "the Glorious Peace" and the diplomatic system that allowed for this peace as "the Glorious Regime". In effect Britain had, through their advantages in trade and cunning diplomacy, created a system whereby they ruled the world through trade and could use concessions and sanctions as sticks and carrots to get the rest of the world to do what they want.

Britain was also willing to sacrifice their interest in favour of their allies in hopes of engendering an unwavering loyalty to the system. Portugal was promised line of territory running from the east coast of Africa in the Congo to the west coast in Mocambique and the Netherlands had Sri Lanka, Austronesia and various trade outposts handed over for a reasonable sum. In order to cement America's place in the Glorious Regime Britain made an offer of much of British North America, excluding the more populated east. America accepted and gave up a tidy sum in return for the confirmation of their position as the natural great power of the Americas. Following this purchase the Americans sought to broadcast to the rest of the world that they had come into their own, that they were a great power not to be messed with, and they did this with a simple name change. The Kingdom of American States had become an Empire.


In bringing America into the Regime Britain also paved the way for the Cape Verde purchase, whereby Portugal sold the Cape Verde islands to America as an outlying naval base in return for a decent sum and trade concessions, helping to bolster their dying economy and give the Portuguese King much needed support when republican revolutionaries looked to overthrow the outdated monarchy.

When Haiti revolted and called for annexation to the EAS Britain co-ordinated a diplomatic effort with Prussia to have France back down and concede the colony to the Empire. And when the Spanish-American War broke out Britain threw its support behind America, harassing Spanish shipping in Europe and imposing a blockade that allowed America to overrun its American and Pacific colonies unimpeded.

Now it is 1900 and America enters the 20th century as a great power united with Britain in an alliance that rules the world. But, as always, the struggle is never truly over.

I don't have a full explanation for this map yet, unfortunately, but I'd rather it didn't just sit around rotting on my hard drive, so I'm going to upload it.

The point of divergence centres around the Seven Years War, which goes a bit differently in terms of America. Britain beats France and takes all of New France, including Louisiana west of the Mississippi, which in our timeline was given to Spain. This means that the Acadian French don't flee en mass to Louisiana in the belief that it will remain French, and instead attempt to either return to France, or remain in Acadia.

British policy, however, is to dilute the French Acadian population with English-speaking colonists. This takes place both in a drive to colonise Acadia with British colonists, and in a brutal campaign to drive Acadians out of Acadia and into areas already predominantly English-speaking (primarily the New England colonies and New York).

Instead of diluting possible rebellious sentiments, this spreads the unrest to New England and New York. The region was already unstable due to the imposition of various "Intolerable Acts", but Acadian leaders masterfully add their own expulsion and the massacre of many hundreds of Acadians as another of Britain's many crimes against its colonies. This sparks an earlier American revolution, one where the colonies' populations are much more divided over the issues. Whilst some of the thirteen colonies were considered to be loyal to the British crown in our timeline, in this one no state can be considered to be steadfast in their loyalty; a significant portion of all their populations supports revolution and independence.

The British respond to the revolution in force, and George Washington is appointed by the Continental Congress to lead the Continental Army against their oppressors. Washington makes some early blunders, and is forced to retreat to Virginia to regroup. This is one of the major reasons why he is not considered the almost messianic figure he was in our timeline. This retreat, whilst it was certainly the sanest thing to do in Washington's position, was seen as a slight by the people of Maryland in particular, and the population of all states north of Virginia in general. It was seen as an abandonment of Washington's responsibilities to all the separate states, and this fostered a belief that Washington, as a Virginian, was out to protect Virginia above all others.

Washington's retreat to Virginia was also a blow to the Congress' and France's confidence in his abilities. France was waiting for Washington to prove his worth and win a battle against the British, and therefore show that the Americans could win this war with French help. Washington later advanced and fought an almost phyrric battle against the British forces. It was a victory, if a poor one, and it was enough for France to throw their lot in with the revolutionaries and declare war on Britain.

With France's help the American rebellion had become a war between two great powers, a war that the Americans and the French would go on to win.

What had begun with a riot in Boston had ended with the independence of over half of Britain's American empire. France had gained Louisiana west of the Mississippi back, and the satisfaction of knowing that it had managed to knock Britain down a notch or two.

The newly independent states were far from united, however. Border disputes with each other and with colonies still under Britain's control were common, and occasionally broke out into small conflicts between the militia of the different states. The central government was too weak to do anything to stop the conflict and unite the states. A new constitution was written, but it was rejected by many of the states; it placed too much power in the hands of men they simply could not trust. The Congress ignored the will of the states, and the states ignored the Congress. Chaos reigned.

It became clear that the republican form of government that the Founding Fathers aspired to was either flawed or would simply not work in such an atmosphere of regional conflict.

Another constitution was written, calling for a King to rule the American States. The issue was with who this King was to be; if the American people could not decide on a President to rule them for a few years, they could hardly decide on a King to rule them for the rest of his life. The King could not be an American, as no American could appeal to all states, but then who could he be? That was when a German noble put himself forward for the position.

In our timeline Christian Friedrich Karl Alexander of the House of Hohenzollern had no children, but in this world he did. Christian Alexander died in the mid-1780s, leaving the Margravates of Brandenburg-Ansbach and Brandenburg-Bayreuth to his son, William Augustus.

William was a learned man, with a good head for organisation and a silver tongue that could speak German, Dutch, French and English. He had sold his Margravate to Prussia in 1790, and so had no obligations in Europe. Further still, he was married with a young son; a young son that could be brought up to be a truly American King. As a candidate he seemed perfect, but several state legislatures still rejected the new constitution, that was until William paid them each a visit.

William spoke English with no discernible German accent, and he spoke it fluently. He had been keeping up with developments in the American colonies since the end of the Seven Years War, and was able to quote many of the great men who fostered the revolution. His oratory skills were not always enough to convince everyone that confirming him as King would be in their best interests, but William was a keen political negotiator, and he exploited his knowledge of the different states' histories to make enough promises to convince those last few crucial legislators. The new constitution was passed, and William made the first King of the American States.

William was certainly not a man to sit about idly, and he quickly made good on many of his promises, negotiating treaties between states in order to confirm their borders and even negotiating the Treaty of Albany with Britain, cementing the American States' borders with British North America, most importantly the confirmation of the control of the Ontario area by New York.

Regional rivalries persisted, however, and various voting blocks persisted despite the newly found national unity. Seeing this, William talked with members of the Continental Congress on the possibility of demanding certain frontier territories from the various states, and reforming them as new states. The idea was to balance out the regional blocks, and to create neutral states that belonged to none of them. The idea was approved, and various new states popped up overnight. New York lost the Ontario area, but gained the State of Ontario's legislators and Congressmen as closely-aligned voters. Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia lost various inland territories, but gained Kentucky, Tennessee and Montgomery as allies in Congress. In 1800 the new state of Erie was created, and quickly fell in line with most North-East states in terms of voting.

Now, it is 1801, and interesting events are taking place in France...


To cut a long story short: a different Seven Years War leads to a different American revolution. America's "experiment" in republicanism fails leading to an enlighted, constitutional monarchy, but regional differences persist and all is not well in Europe.


Oh, and you may be wondering about the title; the full term is "The King is dead! Long live the King!", which originally refers to the seamless passage of the title from the deceased King to his heir. In this case "The King is dead!" refers to the ending of British oppression under King George III, and "Long live the King!" is a celebration of King William's enlightened reign.

An alternate flag of the People's Republic of China based off of several original proposals from the Maoist period. This can also be used as a flag for Leftist/Maoist Chinese opposed to the current Conservative-leaning government.

Red represents Socialism/Maoism, the Stars represent the non-wealth based Social classes united under one government, the hammer and sickle represent union between proletariat and peasant, the 3 stripes represent the Yellow, Yangtze, and Mekong(?) rivers.

The Confederate States of America (CSA or C.S.A.), commonly referred to as the Confederate States (CS or C.S.), Dixie, sometimes called the Southern States, and locally referred to as The South and the The Confederacy, is a confederal republic consisting of 15 republics and a federal district. The 14 contiguous states and Richmond, are in North America between the United States and Mexico. the Republic of Puerto Rico is located in the Caribbean. At 1.005 million square miles ( 2.06 million sq km) and with around 115 million people, it the worlds 10th largest country by total area and 12th largest by population. Within the last 60 years, the Confederate States has seen a major increase in immigrates, and thus has grown very diverse ethnically. The geography is very varied from the mountainous regions of the Appalachians to the deserts the west, and wildlife is diverse. The climate is usually humid.

Tensions between those living the southern United States and the north were already very tense before the American Civil War. Slavery, while not illegal in the US, had steadily been growing uncommon the north by the beginning of the 19th century. In many northern states, abolitionism had become very successful in outlawing slavery in the majority of states, while in others it was very dominant. Those who lived below the Mason-Dixon Line, however, relied on slavery to fuel the economy in most southern states. This split in cultures caused many states above and below this line to have to debate whether they wished to be a slave state or a free state. Beyond slavery, states rights was the other major issue brought up by southerners. Those who believed in states rights felt the US was rejecting the rights of citizen in owning their own property, such as slaves. These tensions finally came to a head during the 1860 presidential election, the Republican candidate Abraham Lincoln defeated Democrat candidate James Buchanan. Due to Lincolns anti-slavery policies, he was very unpopular with many southerners. after his election, seven states declared declared secession and formed the CSA on February 4, 1861; these states were South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. A constitution was signed on March 11. North Carolina, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Virginia soon followed. Four states that permitted slavery, which were Maryland, Delaware, Kentucky, and Missouri, chose to stay with the United States, and came to be known as the "border states."

War between the United States, which would come to be known as the Union during the war, and the Confederate States was not formally declared until April 12, 1861, when the CSA attacked and occupied Fort Sumpter, a Union fort in South Carolina. After the blockade of southern waters by the Union navy, the CSA threatened to cut all trade of cotton and other crops to European countries should they refuse to assist, and after the Confederate victory at the Battle of Gettysburg, the powers of the United Kingdom, France, and Prussia elected to assist the CSA by sending supplies and volunteering troops. In response, the US cut trade with Europe, thus hurting their ability to fight. After three years of fighting, the United States declared peace with the Confederates signing the Treaty of Richmond on September 23, 1864, with the United States promising to recognize the existence and sovereignty of the CSA. The state of Kentucky chose to join the Confederacy the next day, and the occupied territory of Oklahoma and the eastern half the Arizona territory were turned to states, with the latter becoming New Mexico. In exchange, the rest of the Arizona Territory was returned to the US, and the CSA would leave the states of Missouri, Maryland and the newly formed West Virginia. By September 31, all of the European nations would recognize the CSA.

The rest of the 19th century saw the Confederate States grow in industry, and steadily decline in slavery. By 1872, slavery was banned in most states, and on March 20, 1873, was declared illegal by President Gregory Hartland and amended to the constitution. The CSA also fought a conjoined war with the United States against Spain in 1898, resulting in both the CSA and US gaining territories in the Pacific and Caribbean. During the early 20th century, the CSA economy rose quickly and healthy trade was occurring with other nations. They also joined the First World War on the side of the Entente in 1917; this would later coincide in the signing of the Document of American Military Cooperation. However, in 1929, the Wall Street stock market crash occurred in New York City, throwing the United States in what's now known as the Great Depression. The Confederate States were directly affected by the crash, with stocks on southern industries landsliding. Agriculture was also devastated, during what is known as the Dust Bowl. Unemployment levels in both countries was very high, with the CSA suffering worse due to millions of farmers losing their crops. The economy rose slowly during the 1930's, and in 1941, when the CSA and United States joined the declared war against the Empire of Japan and joined the Allies, the economy returned to a stabilized position as it shifted to a war economy. At the end of World War II, the CSA would be a major player in world affairs, becoming a regional superpower in the Americas, and the second nation after the US to develop nuclear weapons. They became a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, and were part of the Cold War with the United States and the Soviet Union. The end of the Cold War left the United States and the Confederate States as the two remaining superpowers left.

The Confederate States is a developed country, and the second largest economy nominally, which is fueled by agriculture and natural resources. It is a post-industrial nation, and one of the worlds largest manufacturers. Since working with the United States on their military, the CSA accounts for 15% of the worlds military spending, and has made major advances in military research. The CSA has become a major influence on the world, both politically and culturally, and is a leader in industrial and agricultural advancement.

His Holy Truthiness Saint-Colbert and his loyal flock of sheep.

--

What to look for: Mount Rushmore, the bald Eagle, the shepherd's staff, the bible, "Bread and Circus" represented by bread and a Gladius (the Roman sword), the Wriststrong, "sweetness" (his gun), the halo is a $1 coin with the text "Holy Truthiness of America". The sheep are marked with the initials of some states.

History:

I did this piece originally for the Colbert portrait gallery contest, but I didn't follow the rule 100% because Colbert is supposed to be saluting (army-like). However, in my case, it wouldn't have made any sense, Colbert being a saint and holding the flag instead, and I thought that it might make a better piece anyway.

I submitted it a few weeks ago, and it hasn't shown up in their gallery, while other pieces have. So I am assuming that it was rejected.

Let it be a lesson for all: I didn't follow the rules, and it is their right and it was my decision.

“To hell with this damn talk of Scalds. Did I tell you about that time I had a run-in with old Emmy? She lost the plot a long time back, and she’s staked out a patch of dirt that she’s been litterin’ with bones. Anyway, I’m out there huntin,’ and not watchin’ what I should, and next thing I’m on Emmy’s land. I don’t even know it till I look up from me pot and see her starin’ back at me – damn smoke must have tipped her off, doubt it was the smell of me cookin.’ The 303’s in easy reach, but she’s got the jump on me – there’s a chance she’s out of slugs, but I ain’t stakin’ nothin’ on it. So I just sit and stare at her, tellin’ meself if I valued me life I’d not be out here in the first place, and thinkin’ if it’s meant to end here ain’t nothin’ I can do about it. She just stares back, sayin’ nothin,’ patient as she’s always been, while me water boils away and me dinner’s way past savin.’ Fire dies too, just before sundown; so I sit there in the dark, and she watches me till dawn. I’ve just about hit breakin’ point when she figures I’m no fun and trundles off to look for some. By now I’m stiff and sore as hell, but I get up and walk away – leavin’ me gun behind, mind you. Cookin’ pot’s a write-off too.

Some days I get this hankerin’ to go and knock the old bint off, but plenty other fools have tried and it’s never ended well. Bullets only make her madder; there’s better things to spend ‘em on. Just give her the same respect you’d give any livin’ thing you meet out in the Bone Desert. That’s what saved me, after all…”

“Spare a bite for a man with a story to tell. I didn’t always look like this; I used to work with Grady’s crew, chasing smoke from firefights and grabbing everything we could once the action had moved on. We had a good outfit, the best in the game, but Grady wanted to retire once he’d made one last big score.

When Lothar Ironclaw made his offer Grady wasn’t keen at first, but there are few who can’t be bought and old grudges did the rest. Our arch rival, Frank the Mangler, had sided with the Crimson Scars, who’d been plundering convoys on Ironclaw’s land. Our orders were simple: we’d pick off their outriders and run from tougher opposition. The Scars would be blind without scouts and Ironclaw’s men would do the rest.

Grady knew the terrain well, and our Packrats and Warhounds were fast enough to outrun the Mangler’s armour; but the Scars’ Buzzards caught us out. At first glance they seemed a joke – flimsy little gyroplanes that stayed well out of firing range – but next thing we were being hit by serious artillery. Panic ensued, and as we fell back, the Mangler’s Mauls cut off our retreat. When we turned to engage them, the Buzzards swept in and peppered us with gunfire. Grady threw his hatch open and knocked one down with his LMG; then a stray shell killed our engine, and we could only stand our ground.

Our rounds bounced off the Mauls’ thick armour as they closed in for the kill. One of the bastards singled us out; he didn’t even bother shooting, but hit us with a wrecker’s blade. Grady and Zeke were crushed as we rolled while Kells was trapped in the cabin and burned. Even though I’d been thrown clear, I couldn’t do a thing for him; my bones were jagged shards of pain and my legs wouldn’t move at all.

As the sounds of battle died, I watched the crows wheel overhead and wondered if this was the end. The Mangler’s men had other ideas; once they’d tended to my wounds they put me in this blasted cage. It’s made from bits of Grady’s rig, and now the Mangler hauls me round to watch him take all comers down. Best not to make him mad, you know? Spare a bite for a man with a story to tell!”

Hello,
here is my new personal sci-fi painting "Babylon Machine".
In this work I didn't use references, textures or any photographic materials, I was interested to paint sci-fi stuff only with photoshop brushes.

Cover book series finished! Finally!
And the last one is Vlad Dracul, the historical figure Vlad Tepes (pronounced tse-pesh), who intermittently ruled an area of the Balkans called Wallachia in the mid 15th century. He was also called by the names Vlad III, Vlad Dracula and Vlad the Impaler. The word Tepes stands for "impaler" and was so coined because of Vlad’s propensity to punish victims by impaling them on stakes, then displaying them publicly to frighten his enemies and to warn would-be transgressors of his strict moral code. He is credited with killing between 40,000 to 100,000 people in this fashion. Horrible, isn't it?

Long time i didn't know, whether I should draw him or not because of his brutality. Sure, if you read his biography, you could understand the one or other behaviour of him.
So finally I completed my cover series and go on with the next project. Work never ends;-). But it is fun, as always!

My entry for art jam "The Most epic thing you can imagine"

Try to listen to some epic metal like Dominion when you look at this as it adds to it.

PS cs4 and lots of blood, sweat, and more blood.

EDIT: HOLY SMOKES! thank you everyone for the overwhelming response. I had a number of people ask for this as a print so ask and you shall receive. I think its pretty much every type of print you can get too haha.

EDIT 2: Holy S*** even more of a response thank you all so much.

I just noticed that DAs prints are pretty costly and spoke with a company around me that will do bigger posters for prolly a lil cheaper and 11X17 prints of this (so they will fit in small places!) are available for 10.00 each plus shipping to wherever you live. Note me and Ill get you more info.


Thank you for the DD! <3

George Washington was known for many things...Being a great general, Having wooden dentures (Okay they weren't really wooden, Cutting down the cherry tree, and being nicknamed the Destroyer of Villages. But what many don't know is he was an avid Zombie Hunter, this is a picture of one of his many adventures out into the night to give some Liberty and Justice to all.

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.

Inspired by my pal KaijuSamurai's Godzilla Neo series ( :iconkaijusamurai: ), I put all of his amazing redesigns into one chaotic, 1024x768 wallpaper.

Enjoy.

(Yes, you can use this on your desktop!)

P.S.: Apparently, a few people have had some trouble seeing just where Godzilla is on this wallpaper. He's directly under King Ghidorah, between Monster X and SpaceGodzilla.

Three-Headed Dragon
KING GHIDORAH

Height: 150 meters
Mass: 75,000 metric tons

Bio:
There is a name whispered in the darkest corners of the universe...a name which, when uttered, makes many a lifeform quake with fear or quickly turn away, covering what passes for ears. This name belongs to a creature so powerful, so frightening, so infamous for its sheer destructive nature that those who know of it either cower from its visage or worship it as the great God of Destruction, the King of Terror, the Planet Killer...KING GHIDORAH.
No one knows just where the monstrosity originated. Some speak of its home being an ancient and terrible place which many cultures describe as an equivalent to Hell or Hades, while others say that it was forged by beings far beyond anything we humans could comprehend. Some say it has simply always been....always moving from planet to planet, destroying it utterly, wiping the slate clean to the point that no new life will ever arise. The Omega to the Alpha of a planet's birth. Whatever the reason or cause, King Ghidorah one day decided to set its six eyes on a tiny blue and white sphere at the edge of a small galaxy in a dark pocket of the cosmos, 65 million years ago in our insignificant terran time.
Landing on our world, Ghidorah sought to ravage it, tearing apart the land and killing all of the animals who called Earth their home. Unfortunately for the beast, Ghidorah encountered something that it never thought would amount to anything: resistance. The mighty deity of the planet, GIGAMOTH, attempted to drive away the monster, something Ghidorah was all too familiar with. Through some bizzarre twist of fate, it managed to actually drive away Ghidorah, but not before thousands of dinosaurs were killed, and the sky, land and sea rendered all but inhospitable, and the god itself ripped asunder into two beings, MOTHRA and BATTRA. Despite their newfound animosity for one-another, new life would arise, and that at least a few of the valiant dinosaurs would live on to carry their heritage into the future, watching over the new, furry creatures that would one day take dominion of the world.
Of course....Ghidorah would not be so easily defeated. Oh no, not by a long shot. It would return to this little world, one that it had gained something that it had never experienced before: CONTEMPT. This world would not just die. It would be erased as though it were a speck of dirt on the tiniest scale, and woe be to whatever foolish creature that stood in its way.

....One giant saurian would take that personally.

Abilities/Aspects:
- Armored scales resistant to ALL forms of weaponry, nuclear or otherwise
- Body controlled by huge nervous system in chest, and central head controls the other two
- Can generate and fire Gravity Bolts from all three mouths
- Body seemingly capable of living forever
- Charges energy from solar power collected in wings
- Can overpower the minds of lesser creatures
- Blood has similar mutagenic effects as Godzilla's...in fact the two creatures share oddly similar DNA...

END SERIES 1

UP NEXT: Series 2
