Karic Gunship by Tekka-Croe Karic Gunship by Tekka-Croe
So this has been in the works for the last few days. I've gone back and seriously revised my previous Karic Gunship design. I've moved two of the engines from the wings to the fuselage, as having four engines out on the wings made it look too cumbersome. This Gunship's armament is varied from the previous design. While the chin-mounted chaingun is the same, this gunship is sporting a pair of 40mm rotary cannons, each capable of sawing a main battle tank in half. All armaments are shown in the stowed position, with gunnery bay doors closed. I've also tried some new things with shading. Sort of got a pseudo-anime look going on here.

I'm not sure where this is supposed to be, since all of Karic's landmasses are covered in city... Oh well, maybe it's on Karic's sister planet, an agricultural world. The photograph used as the background is Edwards Airforce Base, in Florida; I took the picture while on vacation a couple years back.

*In the universe of Novus Imperium, Karic is humanity's homeworld. Its landmasses are uniformly covered in a blanket of multilevel city, and has an artificial ring, as well as numerous deep-space colonies in orbit at Karic's Lagrange Points. It is the most powerful planet in the galaxy.

I think you mean that's Eglin AFB in Florida. Edwards is in California. >_>

Excellent work dude. This is phenomenal. Love the Anime feel to it. Reminds me of Yukikaze in the soldi cell shading. The lines are beautiful. Love the straight yet curved lines that makes the thing feel more real. Almost a alternate reality Russian design for a heavy bomber.
