I do a lot of concept work for the game Firefall. Not able to release a lot of things, but here is something I had done about a year and a half ago. It is an old tree that grew around a crashed mobile mining drill called a thumper which in Firefall get airdropped in. This is at the center of the Blackwater Swamp area.

Oh cool.  Such detail.  I applied for a position at Red5!  I'm way under qualified but it looks like a fantastic place to work

based on the convenient scale made by jayaxer, the thumper embedded onto the tree is a squad thumper IV, which means that this tree is freaking enormous, very well done and amazing amount of detail on the model, r5 uses some of the concept art of players for the game so pls help them make a great game :)

Oh man- shame this didn't get used. Would LOVE to see things like this more often! (I noticed a thumper through the raised roads in the melding tornado portal and stopped to observe a while : D)

I have to say, your work really comes through in the game man. I play it a few days a week, and the the visuals in the game and game play are really coming together.

Will I be able to stand on the shoulders of other players to reach the top of the tree AS IS ILLUSTRATED? :O

Either that Thumper was deployed many years ago, or that tree grew around it very, very quickly.
