Germane Blidhetz J3 Tank by VulnePro Germane Blidhetz J3 Tank by VulnePro
And the rough Wacom concepts continue. Another tank, this one made by Germane (futuristic political bloc inspired by Germany but not descended from it (history is fragmented and therefore strange things like this occur) and retrofitted with parts by the fictional consortium/political bloc Vulne (the name we gave the studio. Pro added for Production). It was clearly inspired by a German WWII Jagdpanzer 38 (T) Hetzer. This one's a little more pimped out but still a fairly quick rough. More to come :)

Also a WWII armor enthusiast I see! I marked it down as a Hetzer derivative before I read the description, haha. Nice implementation of Panzer design elements, though I wish the bottom of the glacis wasn't so curved xD

Aye, indeed inspired by the Hetzer and German WWII armor. As much as the Nazis were pretty bad mojo they were quite out there and inventive with their machines. This was a quick rough that I never got back round to refining so it's got some things that can be improved for sure. I still dig it overall though, prob a little Makoto Kobayashi snuck in there too ;)

Indeed, I'm quite fascinated by the aesthetics of WWII weaponry. The Germans came up with some crazy stuff so it's a great place to look for ideas in creating fictional military technology. I dig a lot of the WWII tanks look as well, they were just some interesting machines.

I love the interpretation of what has to be one of the nicest looking assault guns ever made, the slopes on the side armour just look wonderful.

The frontal ball mount weapon is mounted too low on the hull, admittedly this is artistic licence but its going to get clogged up the first time your fictional crew took this off road, and its field of fire will be far too limited by terrain features. It still of course looks very nice.

Thanks for the kudos. Yeah this is just a rough with the kinks in the design to be worked out in a more final full CG which I'm sure I'll do at some point. Yeah I agree a lot of Germany's armor was pretty wild and often elegant looking machines.

Very cool tank-destroyer design, can definately see the Jagdpanzer 38 influences.

Thank you and thanks for the fav. I have to say a lot of the WWII designs were wild, from all the various nations involved but clearly much of the German hardware was really out there stuff. I guess that's why it's always been so popular with the military modeler crowd.

I'm afraid I have little extra time for doing additional drawings in odrer to have someone make it 3d, I have a pile of things going on right now. As long as the design is fully credited as our copyrighted property it's ok if anyone wants to make 3d models or their own drawings and such, just has to be clear it's Vulne Pro material it's all good.

Great Hetzer update. How about adding a co-ax weapon ballistically matched & slaved to the main gun, in case the main fire-control system goes belly-up?

Perhaps you should call it an 'assault gun' or 'tank destroyer' instead, to correspond with modern usage.

My thanks. Indeed in many ways it's sorta an updated Hetzer but in terms of the story and the philosophy behind how things are and came to be it's very future retro in it's execution, not uber hi-tech in how we might think, say a cyberpunk kinda tank would be. Those are good ideas though. Tanks are more support for FOILs and aso often found protecting neutral territories and towns. They still play a tactical role but not in the same way they would today.

Thank you, I appreciate it and I hope you had a Merry Christmas and happy Holidays as well. I do have a lot more works planned, just been quite busy with a lot of other freelance work. I will probably be posting some new stuff very soon here. Been peeping your gallery as well (been so busy haven't had a lot of time to wander Deviant as much as I'd like until late) and I must say you have a lot of very cool classic style mecha designs, you also have some pretty wild and unorthadox ones as well. Good stuff :)

Is that a spare track under the main turret? It looks pretty small compared to the onse in use.

Thanks man and my thanks for the fav. I like this one much, much better as well. The Bristle back was a really quick rough and realy loosey, this one a bit more refined. Both were from a sheet of pencil thumbnails and this was one of the thumbs I dug most. You're right, that is a spare track and it is a little small, I'll edit that and re-uplaod it, easy fix :) I'll still do, and have, a ton of more final full CG paints on the way but I'm shifting a lot of concepts to this fast rough approach so I can bang out more of em.
