XCOM: DEEP RISING Laser Rifle by ukitakumuki XCOM: DEEP RISING Laser Rifle by ukitakumuki
In early 2010, Strategycore.co.uk approached me to help create art for an XCOM tribute project they had brewing. One does not say no to any of that.
Although I turned down the offer to do the sequential art given other commitments at the time, I settled on the concept art phase, which proved to be a delightful experience.
The greatest challenge was to re-imagine the original pixel art into a more tangible form, adding my own preferences for functionality while attempting to honour the aesthetic read of the originals.

5 years on, Olav and Pedro, the crazy geniuses who hired me, have come through with that vision- a multi-media comic with a gorgeous presentation: comic.strategycore.co.uk/#!/
Your passion inspires me..!

Standard issue to every imperial guardsman!

.... Well except every guardsman has a far inferior version that needs constant maintenance...

And has barely any stopping power...

Is it a coincidence or is the 'MARSEC' inscription from X-COM: Apocalypse? :D
