A little something I put together in the spare bits. I need more technology in my portfolio, I'm perfectly comfortable with cars and guns and such but I really don't do enough of it to show that. You should maybe Download to see this in full-res, there's a lot of fiddly detail.

The composition of this piece got very messy at some point, probably because I'm easily persuaded to put in "one more cool thing" at the expense of clarity. I like most of the bits I ended up with, but the fact that I didn't plan it all out in advance really shows in the uneven layout. Still, I like the general designs, and I had fun with stuff like the dichotomy of the dragons, or the mousiness of the civilian car.

7 logos to find, but one of them is quite badly done... let's say 6 logos and a bonus crap one for the truly dedicated.

Cintiq 21UX, Manga Studio EX v3, ask me any questions you like. No refs were used for anything but the Space Needle, the rest of it is 110% freehanded make-em-up. If something is mechanically questionable, I take the blame.


Daily Dev, no kiddin'!? Thank you! :D

For all the color requests, check out the Download option and you'll see that it's now at 3600x2400. Have fun with it, let me know what you come up with!


Hey look, now it's a print! That's new. I've never sold a print before, but I'm thinking why not already?

Oh wow, I noticed that you were trying to make the background sleazy but I didn't really think about that. I really do like this, there is so much effort and detail.

HA! I love it! So much right with this piece. My personal favorite has to be the Holy exclamation, though. This has got to be my favorite of any piece I've seen in months. Got to appreciate the SR community for always going above and beyond. (Unless this is just REALLY REALLY similar to SR Seattle on accident.... an accident with an arcology, even. ;D)
