Got an Ace Back by shinsengumi77 Got an Ace Back by shinsengumi77
*EDIT* It's not much, but I darkened the mid ground a little. Until I learn more efficient techniques for digital work, that's about what I can do. :nuu:

Finally! :dummy: Background could have been better, but overall I'm pretty happy with it.

This is a pic of a battlefield that has been "broken" (i.e. battle lines have blurred into one big mess.) Faction units (in green) fighting Federation units (in desert paint.) In the background you see some Federation missileers and in the far back, one of the main assault platforms and its compliment of mecha.

The title comes from "ace" pilots -those who have earned a name on the battlefield. Hiro groups aces into two categories: "runners" and "shooters." Runners employ exceptional maneuverability, and often specialize in melee tactics, while shooters are highly flexible and accurate with firearms. Typically each ace has a little of each in them. Hiro is THE ace of the Federation. Kana is a runner ace, and Eric is a shooter ace. None of them appear in this picture though. ;P

Oh and something I never mentioned -The Federation refers to the Faction as simply that, or the full name, the "Red Seal Faction." The Faction military and the citizens in Faction-controlled territories refer to themselves as the "Red Seal Republic." Just in case anyone wondered what "RSR" meant on the mech in the foreground.

Also, I realized earlier that I gave an overestimation of size for the mecha in "Dream" -based on my original mechanical designs and the fact that I actually did some approximate measuring, the mechs are around 28 meters tall, not 40. ^^;

Congrats, you did more than just catch my attention with this one, you stole it from me =P (Razz)
I was just simply browsing, and I stumbled upon this.
Very intense indeed.

You have good skills as I could tell by watching this picture. 
Ever tried to draw Cyberpunk(ish)? (high tech combined with low/underworld -life)

I appreciate your kind words! :D  
Hopefully I will be able to keep improving and do better coloring and lighting for pieces similar to this. :nod:

I haven't tried cyberpunk stuff yet (but I'm a big fan!).  
Most of my stuff is all related to my manga project, so I tend to keep the subject matter within that type of world. ^^;

Interesting!
I'm also big fan of genre, and I have also Cyberpunk 2020 2nd edition Pen & Paper roleplaygame's core rulesbook. And it's really interesting to read!
From Cyberpunk styled mangas my favorites are from Masamune Shirow's works.

I agree, Masamune Shirow is like the Master of Cyberpunk. lol
Ghost in the shell remains one of my favorite series', and will probably still be one of my favorites years and years from now. :nod:

Also like the original Bubblegum Crisis (2032 version). :D

Ya lol probably would fall apart before it would be used in combat :iconfacepalmplz: you can't have 30 missiles and a giant sword in something like this General, it would break off the arm....

Know your rank, Captain! Add more missiles and at least 5 more swords; then throw in a couple linear cannons for good measure!
It doesn't have to be functional as long as it looks like it can destroy a planet! :evillaugh:

I think you should probably thinnen the lining of the explosions to give it a fiery look

shinsengumi77 Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, as soon as I finished coloring it I thought it would have been best to do it like the explosions in the background (done digitally), but I am not very good at combining traditional ink and digital coloring at this point. ^^;

I also don't go back to re-work things once they're done. Oh well. :nuu:

Dude this is awesome work! I love everything going on here it's pretty epic man. Also the choice of colors fit perfectly for the robots. Instead of being colorful there close to colors that fit the environment which fits a situation like this.
