Yeah, still having a hard time drawing. Allergies are hitting me like a sledge thanks to the pollen count in St. Louis being in the thousands.

Work is still ...well... the same. I like the pay, I like the benefits and it's going to be hard finding another employer to match it but I'm actively looking. Honestly, our trouble are nothing I wouldn't at any other center but I'm kinda getting fed up with the crap over and over. Have a feeling someone is going to quit or get fired before anything changes and from past experiences, that doesn't always mean change for the better (case in point: my last GM) One of my assistant managers is already his exit strategy and he's the one manager I actually like working with.

I need more money to get a new car to get more possibilities and right now that means taking commission and that drawing again.

... and before you say it, I would become a street performer but I'm out of shape and no natural talent :lol: ... :(  

Anyway, I'll be posting again guys. Thanks for your patience.

In the mean time, enjoy some Mongolian Folk Metal:


  • Listening to: Iron Maiden
  • Reading: My Life at War
  • Watching: The Expanse
  • Playing: MechWarrior Online
  • Eating: Dead Animal
  • Drinking: Vitamin Water

BattleTech: Banshee BNC-3S V
The Banshee BNC-3S Assaultmech.

Been in a slump for a good time and decided it was way past time for me to upload some art.

Recent 3025-3039 games, I have become very impressed with the Banshee BNC-3S. It's firepower and durability rival that of my other favorite assault mech, the Awesome.

The pose is very much inspired by Alex Iglesias aka :iconflyingdebris: Banshee 3S from his mock cover of Interstellar Operation prior to the new BattleMaster being revealed. Alex's take on the banshee is probably the best interpretation of the Banshee 3S I have seen to date.

Got a few art projects planned but work has been stressful this week and need some time to decompress.

Mean time, here is some Main Street Saints and their cover of 16 Tons;

DrunkWarrior Online: More Booze Required!
One of my best bud's, DJ Sunder formally of Underfiend Radio, decided to start streaming for fun. If you want to watch someone mix Heavy Drinking + Heavy Metal and MechWarrior Online, I invite you to tune in to his stream Monday Nights. Warning, there will be F-bombing with the Jager bombing so you should probably watch from home.

Fans of Battletech might recognize my artwork was inspired from color plat from the 1997 publication of Field Manual: Mercenaries featuring the fantastic art of Mark Zug. I went with traditional coolant vest of Battletech vs the coolant suit though kept a similar color scheme of my first shot OD Green Mechwarrior gear with the exception of blue jeans. Figure jeans wood would be as popular in Mechwarrior survival kits they keep in their cockpits as jumpsuits usually featured in art and fiction when Mechwarrios are not in their mechs.
