Project Boots: PANAM Armour

By ukitakumuki

A recent commission by the extremely talented writer, John V. Purvis. Project Boots(working title) is speculative 22nd-Century futurewar drama/ hard-SF IP put together and considered with such consistency and tasteful balance of 'Sci' & 'Fi' that my inner nerd agreed to it in a heartbeat. I've been impressed by clients in the past who have displayed an equally tremendous breadth of knowledge and passion on the subject matter but few with as much creative finesse to weave ideas together as this gentleman here. I guess taste-wise we share a very similar palate. Most importantly, was the amount of research, learning and bouncing ideas- that alone definitely made this project the highlight of my past 2 years where concept art and vis-dev is concerned.

This presentation sheet is no doubt a huge excuse just to feature a hangar-and-wares-on-display style shot (;] always wanted to do one) as well as an exercise in information management(should be accessible enough for casual sci-fi fans, but also hint at enough harder sci fi notes), but really is more for John to hopefully just keep as a motivational desktop wallpaper as he toils away on this baby of his. Looking forward to future collaborations :ninja:

My only observation is that the pilot looks like his neck is going to be really sore after sitting in that position for more than five minutes.

I just love all the technical details and specs thought out.
Makes me wonder if you're an engineer turned artist, or just have the gift of a very technical mindset.
Looking forward to more of this. :)
