Commission - Hammer's Slammers

*Re-post due to accidentally deleting part of my gallery*

Commissioned by  :iconmihoshik: MihoshiK
They wanted some Hammer's Slammers hovertanks with their crazy plasma beam powerguns. The result of being hit by one visible in the entirely red glowing mass of a melted down tank destroyer.
Still holds up fairly well today I think, 10 years on.

Glad to see you are still among the living. I love this piece.

I remember reading a few Hammer's Slammers novels when I was in high school. Liked the tanks, hated the characters.

I loved Hammer's Slammers, and you do a fantastic job of them!

I was that client, and I'm still very happy with this :D

Excellent depiction of the Slammers tanks. Was a big Slammer's fan back in the day and might still have the books somewhere.

I think this was the first peace of your art I ever found back in the day

These are one of my favorite series of books. Esp being from someone who has "Seen the Elephant"

Mongoose Publishing?

This one was just for an individual if I recall, no official intent with the art.

Mongoose Publishing has Hammer's Slammers sourcebook in their Traveller TTRPG line, hence the question.

Loved the Slammers as a kid. This is a very good representation of how I always saw these tanks in my mind's eye. Very well done. :-)

I read the series after I finished my time in the US Army. David Drake had an interesting concept for a future tank. Your art of the tank is well done.

Oh, definitely held up very well. Still the best depiction I have seen.

I feel there are a few old scifi IPs an artist could easily dominate if they focused on it due to them have practically zero modern art.
