something along the lines of the seven year war project, perhaps.

This has been (and remains) one of my all-time favorite pieces on Deviantart.  It has stuck with me since the first time I saw it, and I figure there must be something perfect in it - because every time I have looked on it I have felt a change of atmosphere.  Is there any way I could purchase a print?

is that a 50 cal? or maybe some kinda ant tank a 20mm or 30mm, i like how its a combo of futuristic gear and modern weapons, also i love how you add tribal type decorations to otherwise sleek and future equipment, also the feathers on the top is badass.....this is probably my favorite piece you've done, thanks for sharing your amazing work, i love sci military stuff and this is like all my dreams come true....

I was watching Oblivion and when Morgan Freeman revealed his equipment I was awestruck! "That's Ukita's work!" Congrats man!

I can't help but wonder whether the creators of the Oblivion movie saw this picture, because if they didn't the coincidence would be breathtaking.
I mean it's not even similar, it's literally identical. And I mean everything, the helmet, the eyes, the feathers. The rifle on the right shares the same exact typical characteristics as the ones in the movie. They used that optics of the guy on the left too. You have a quote on the armor plate, the movie literally revolves around a quote as well.

I'm almost thinking I'm embarrasing myself by typing this kind of comment to the actual concept artist of the said movie, because they do look exactly like "scavs". I wonder whether they actually ripped you off.

Or are you a time traveller who's taking a piss?

this is one of my favorite works from you. I just have to say this but I screamed your name in the theatre while watching Oblivion, specially that gun on the right! I hope you'll get the credit you deserve, sir. :)

Body armour looks like in  the movie "Oblivion" with Tom Cruze - they used your ideas?

This has got to be one of my favorite pictures, ever. The figures, dark against the sky...the sky itself, a wonderfully morose and dreary gray...And the petals have got to be the part that makes it, very solemn. I also find the fact that the primary figure is holding human weaponry to be very foreboding, and tell a lot of story. Stellar work, overall.

Let's hope you get a credit for your design influence on OBLIVION. I'm sure Joe would want that if he knew this was your copyrighted artwork.

I enjoyed the movie very much. As soon as I saw the characters I knew right away they were yours, as this is my favorite illustration from you. I was however disappointed to learn you didn't have anything to do with implementing them into the film. Keep us updated if you get royalties!
