As It Falls by VulnePro As It Falls by VulnePro
This is an illustration that I have to utterly cite :iconukitakumuki: for it's inspiration, so Kai this one's dedicated to you my friend ;) Kai's an illustrator whom I have great respect for his imagination and fantastic digital paint work. It came as a nice surprise to me he's a fan of Vulne Pro's work and the Theos project but I made it clear to him I'm a big fan of his work as well :) It was his last Starship Troopers inspired posting [link] 100 Years of Force that inspired this particular piece. I just felt like doing something new free of a NDA for a change XD

Clearly I did my own groove here as the intention wasn't to do the same thing, I think some old school SF3D informed the look of this a great deal and maybe even a little Halo snuck in there too (being it drops today at midnight hard not to. Dual wielding baby!).

The mecha are some sort of hard suits 'o' the apocalyptic futua' blasting away at whatever ideologies are unpopular at the time. I'm guessing scary stuff like this often do that kind of thing. The weapons are firing caseless rounds so no shells popping out all over the place. I kept the piece a bit loosey goosey with certain areas getting some tighter polish. The game plan wasn't to be perfect but quick and dirty. I've been busy as hell over the summer with little time for doing any work not related to the projects I had been involved with. Being those projects are winding down I plan to get back to posting a lot 'o' new stuff. This one's the first, of hopefully many, full digital paints to come.

Once again this one's for you Kai, keep of the damn impressive work my friend and you'll always inspire others to do the same.


Full Wacom paint, Photoshop CS2.

It was after the A B C wars, nobody expected the apocalypse on Sesame Street. Oscar was ready to kick ass and chew bubble gum and he never had any bubble gum in the first place! The horrors that followed...

Dual-wielding, apocalyptic pwnage? I think yes.

This is particularly bad ass and makes me want to just have a little war of my own. ;D

Thanks Shin :) Damn I've been so busy and behind on DA posts I didn't see this one right away. I appreciate the comments. It good to see how some of us from back in the OCAD days have carried on and always nice to be able inspire one another when we can. That new steampunk work you guys have been doing rocks as well.

Now on that little war, how many of these bad boys do you want to order? With machine guns or missile packs XD

Sesame Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Grouch! Coming to theaters across the globe!

I like your way of poking fun at that stereotypical children's show!

LOL Thanks! That gag more or less came right from the talk back comments after I posted it. It was so amusing I just ran with it XD

It's also very reminiscent of a certain universe where humanity is returning to Earth in the 28th Century and there's a Nazi-like organisation who wants control of the planet - I can't remember what the universe is called because it was German-made. The battlesuits are very similar to these though.

Really well done. This one should be a portfolio piece.

Did you place this one on the front page yourself, or does DeviantArt shuffle the gallery automatically? More editorial control is a good thing. Maybe you could benefit from a dedicated portfolio site to showcase your best work.
