Not so sure why do you disable comment on your works.

Only on some of them.
I had a troll stalkng me here a few years back who would post on every new image I uploaded.
I blocked him once and he came back against with a new user name.
He gave up after I disabled comments.

I think your art is awesome. Plus, you actually give the specifications for everything, unlike some other people.

Thank you. :)

I do my best to try and make my science fiction as believable as I can (and still have it be science fiction).  I use John Woods Cambell and James Gunn's criteria for science fiction.

Again, thank you for the kind words. :)

You're welcome. Also, I noticed that you mentioned the PI-02 Protean Interceptor in some of your descriptions, but don't have a picture of it. I must say I am curious as to what it looks like. 

I agree with you on the fact that your science fiction is believable and could actually happen. 

Also, on a sidenote, I love the personal quote you have.

The Protean type machines are soft-SF type machines that are more McGuffins than actual scientific mechanisms.  They are transformable fighters.  The reason for them being transformable is because they are supposed to fill multiple roles in interplanetary warfare. 

1) Anti-spacecraft role against fighters, shuttles, pods, and battlerobots.
2) Anti-aerospace craft role against aircraft, and other aerospace craft.
3) Mecha transport role, by being both the delivery system (an aerospace fighter), and the actual ground attack unit (a battlerobot), thus eliminating the need for a dropship.
4) Planetary assault role, by being the main battlerobot used for occupation of planets, planetoids, and large-scale space stations like Bernal Spheres and O'Neill cylinders.
5) Construction roles, by being a manlike robot that can also change into an aerospace craft allowing the vehicle to transport materials for the construction of space structures, or acting as a lifting vehicle (like a crane) on a planet to help in the construction of bases, installations, etc.

The Protean fighters are going to transform, thus I will be taking my time building them in 3D.  I intend on using either 3Ds Max or MODO to make them.  However, I need to get some of the character models, and personal equipment done (in DAZ Studio) before that. :)

Thank you for the kind words.
Some of the science fiction I make might be able to happen, some of it is improbable (like the Prodono), and some of it is total fantasy, but that's what makes for good science fiction, the right combination of all three. :)

J.B.S. Haldane's quote is a great one, even if he was a total asshat. :D

So basically the Protean machines are like Transformers. 

I'm sorry to say this, but was J.B.S. Haldane really an asshat?

Unfortunately, I view him as such in so far as his political leanings.
We can forgive him because of when he lived (he didn't see the horrors of the Soviet Union, Mao's China, or the Nationalist Socialists of Germany), so he was blissfully ignorant of what socialism looks like in actual practice.  That's why I give him a pass to a degree.  His atheism was also forgivable because Alfred Russel Wallace's theory was not yet relabeled "Darwinism" by the Reform Darwinist movement of the late 19th and early 20rh centuries, and next to nothing was known about the extent of the Cambrian explosion, the mass extinctions, and genetics as a science.  Darwin himself had a much more empirical view in being a Deist than did his contemporaries (that were either Theist or Atheist).  Haldane's "Primordial Soup Theory" has since proven to be wrong since the radiation and conditions of early Earth would never have supported the formation of the necessary proteins (let alone simple cell organisms like bacteria and such).   One must keep in mind that the 19th century atheist movement was joined to the Marxist and socialist movements of the day, so much of what came out of those periods are SCIENTISM, not actual objective science.  Sadly, scientism persists to this day and is no better than the Theists of the previous centuries who were beholden to the tyranny of the Catholic church (itself a paganized corruption of Christian belief). 
While Haldane's contributions to the study of genetics in the objective sense are certainly worthy of praise, his injection of his political and personal beliefs muddied the waters of his works and thus made him quite the asshat of his day.
Darwin didn't do that.  He had respect for those that disagreed with his Deism and was committed to furthering the understanding of what he called "God's works".
The American Thinker did a great piece on this, and I highly recommend it.

While I certainly agree with Darwin's disdain for organized religion, I find myself totally ad odd with Haldane's atheism (or anything like it).  As a 40+ year old man, I've come to realize that both extremes are wrong when it comes to the empirical evidence around us. 

A good book on this subject is Michael Anthony Corey's "Back to Darwin: The Scientific Case for Deistic Evolution." 
www.amazon.com/Back-Darwin-Sci…

I hope this long-winded reply adequately expresses why I view Haldane as both brilliant (with regard to his work in genetics) and a total fool when it comes to his beliefs and politics.

Indeed it does, and I agree with you.

On a side note, is it a bad thing that when I imagine how you look, my grandfather comes to mind?

LOL! :D

I'm only 42, if your grandfather has all hair, very little gray, a clean shave, and is muscular from weight lifting, then we might look alike. :)
Recently, I'm been told I look like the Star Wars character Poe Dameron....not sure if that IS good or bad considering how awful that movie turned out. :D
