Sfika drone fighters by VulnePro Sfika drone fighters by VulnePro
A bit of a hiatus due to a hospital stay and post recovery by my Father back in February through March/April (he's doing fine, it was a bleeding stomach ulcer) I'll be gradually getting back to the posting.

Here's something I have wanted to revisit for some time now TKP air power, in the form of drones. We have a pair of Sfika drone attack fighters manufactured by Jiendel Gavil that prowl the skies of Polemos utilizing the Icar drive system (TKP's mysterious anti-gravitic drive). These are not manned by a human pilot, thus drones, but they can be manned by a Sendai control consciousness. They are roughly the size of a small modern fighter plane and they are launched from an arm mount from ground bases or even in cities. 

These are a re-visioning of this older design: Sfika fighter cammo by VulnePro  Sfika fighter desert by VulnePro 

Pencil illustrations with digital enhancements, light inking, and color in Photoshop CS3

There a pile of stuff pending, I just have to get to it all. Stay tuned...

They look absolutely perfect. Can they hover?

Big thanks Rob these were a lot of fun to do :) Indeedy they do and they can land on the fins if need be, tripod style. Though I had done the original versions, all the way back in 2002, I always wanted to revisit them and do more aerial craft for TKP, and even more so hopefully make something iconic to TKP. These turned out pretty strange and kinda fit the bill. I expect there will be more ;)

Cheers!

Amazing bio-tech M/m! I think those designs were pretty solid to begin with, but you really revitalized him.

Glad to hear everything is working out with your father. Medical emergencies are never fun.

Kind thanks, glad you dig 'em :)

Yeah, it wasn't fun indeed but he came through it pretty well, he's doing good save the memory issues.

Good to hear from you!

Best!

Reminds me of Half Life 2's Striders and Gunships

Wasn't even remotely inspired by Half Life but I suppose I can understand the Strider comparison due to the tripod fin binders at the back of these fighters. 

Thanks for posting :)

It was actually more it's ''Biological'' look, since the Strider and Gunship are both cyborg
It was also in part due to the similar colour scheme

Aye, makes sense. I wasn't aware they did Luftwaffe style cammo in Half Life but I suppose that isn't a big surprise, it's a big inspiration for a lot of sci-fi military stuff including these two beasties.

Cheers!

Definitely, the Combine in half life are a massive intergalactic dictatorship/corp, intent on wiping out humanity, so it is similar to the Third Reich
