Live by the Sword by VulnePro Live by the Sword by VulnePro
This has been awhile in the coming, seeing some actual FOIL action stuff. I know a lot of you following the TKP work have been waiting to see thing kinda thing so here's the first ;)

This one was a total blast to do. I started it last year but shelved it due to other work. Of course I wanted to finish it so that I did.

Here we have a shot of a Polemon Dies combat FOIL blasting over the jungle haze with a pair of recon/targeting sendai drones. The sky is filling with AA flak and, quite possibly, a few more of those drones just got blasted to bits. The FOIL and the drones Icar drive rings are glowing due to high speed, hight output flight.

Digital inks and cell colors in Photoshop CS3

More to come down the line...

Cheers!

The sense of speed in this is fantastic.

I'm also a sucker for cool thruster effects, lol. Can you tell me what those remote units do?

And mechs with swords! That's where it's at!!

Thank you for the kind words and sorry for the slow reply, been busier and busier anymore. Glad you dug it :)

The drones are sentient units as well and these are essentially battlefield tactical assessment/ranging/recon drones. These are not armed but some can and are.

Aye, swords were where the story took things so it made sense to explore that.

Cheers!

Aye, intended to get to some of this stuff much sooner but other things often got in the way.

There will be more and likely something along those lines ;)

My thanks for the comments :)

That looks pretty impressive...

...But silly. Why is he using a SWORD of all things?

My thanks, however I'm surprised you would comment on the sword simply because you've followed the gallery long enough to know that many FOILs use them. Bladed sword, beam sword, doesn't really matter, still swords. Not like mecha with swords are all that strange, it's a pretty common part of the genre. Gundam has it's beam stuff, Theos bladed swords. The story for Theos demanded something different and in the context of the setting there's nothing silly about it ;)
