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.

beautiful machiiiiiine !

Hm. This looks like it would translate well into LEGO.
However, doing it color-accurate (looks to me like sand green) would be a HUGE PAIN.

Awesome design, the way the engines mount on the wings is really interesting, it almost looks loose but sturdy at the same time because of the wing's thickness.

Only minor thing is the people look a bit too small to scale with that grass. Unless, of course, Karic has really huge blades of grass xD
Tekka-Croe Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Indeed, it's a bit out of scale, but this was quite literally the only picture of an airfield I could find on my computer.

I'm just gonna say it's tall grass. Watch out for Pokemon! ;)
StrikeRougeMk2 Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah, I see.

Another thing, is there any reason you moved away from the four engines on the wings like on your original version? I think it'd look less Evangelion-y if it was like that :o

But that's just my opinion. :P
