great artowrk, i love the lots and lots of details, the colours and the light effects.


What programm did you use? And how long did that picture took to finish?

i may give only one advise:
the fire of the mech in the backgraound looks too liquid in my opinion. I don't know how this bullet-shoot-fire is called in english, but cause i can see empty shells falling on the ground i guess he shoots some kind of projectiles and for this kind of weapon the fire looks a little bit too much like drops of liquid ^^

i hope this wa somewhat understandable :P

i love your work!

I hated the Elementals so much in MechWarrior 3, partly because I couldn't play as them.

Then the MekTek release of MW4: Mercs came out, and I hated that nobody else wanted to play as them, so I was left cutting the legs out from under Mechs all by myself.

Anyway, great picture - I love the little Elemental standing on the shoulder of the Enfield.

I absolutely love the battlescarring in this one! The jagged laser scar and LB-X pockmarcks are stunning!
TRO 3060 reprint is still my favorite though. ;)

battle damage is my favorite part of making any one of these pieces.

I feel like a little kid when doing it. Making sound effects n everything.

ScrapFish Featured By Owner May 26, 2011
Heck, if I could draw half as well as you, I'd be making sound effects as much as I wanted and noone could do jack to stop me!

On a different note, it is kind of funny that destroying is sometimes as much (or more) fun than the creation itsself.
I just can remember that I would spend a hour building a tower out of Legos and then spending three hours on slow-mo collapse sequences.

Anyway, keep up with the sound effects! It works!

Simply spectacular. :D One of my favourite touches is the tiny fireflies flitting around at the bottom of the image, it helps to lend more colour to an otherwise quite dark area of the image.

Just bought the 3058U PDF, amazing art as always on the cover. Hope to see more of your work on CBT products...by the way, I dont think Ive said it yet but Era Report 3052 was another great cover. (and one of the reasons I bought it also). Again, great job! :)

the guy inside the mech that's getting his window pried open is probably thinking "fuuuuuuuu" because his arms can't reach him to knock him away XD and if his bud helps him he'll probably smash his glass along with him :' D
