M92 Shalmaneser

Hello all. Sorry for the last of posts these last few weeks; I've been really busy, and abroad for that matter. Learning a bit about managing computer clusters in Berlin, as a matter of fact. But enough about that. I promised further pictures of the armoured vehicles of the American Empire and I shall deliver. This is the pencil stage of the M92 Shalmaneser, the self-propelled howitzer of the Imperial American army. This enormous vehicle's primary armament is the 240mm M1 Gud-Alim howitzer. I'll post the finished piece soon.

Type 49 Tsuchigumo

This is another design I've struggled with over the years. Like the previous post (the Type 47 Mushi), this vehicle design was heavily inspired by the original Fuchikoma think-tanks from Masamune Shirow's Ghost in the Shell (and not, just to be clear, by their poorer successors, the Tachikoma and Logikoma). I don't think of this current iteration of the design by any means, but it was a significant step forward, particularly in the leg design. Anyway, I'm rambling. Below is some information from the article I wrote for this vehicle: "The Type 49 Tsuchigumo is an infantry fighting vehicle used...

Type 47 Mushi

If you click the link here , you'll find the original preparatory sketch for this picture. There were elements of the sketch that I wasn't quite happy with, so it was nice tidying them up for this finalised design. This is the Type 47 Mushi. Below is an extract from an article I wrote about the Type 47: "The Type 47 Mushi is currently the Obake Self Defence Fleet’s most heavily armoured vehicle, and as such has seen extensive use in that role since its introduction in 3287. Unlike many Obake military vehicles it is not specialised, but like its predecessor the Type 40, it is a more multi-...

Hellhound 4A5

So since working on my series of designs for the armoured vehicles of the American Empire (more of them to come, by the way), I also decided to finalise some designs from the arsenals of other states within my post-apocalyptic world. This is the Hellhound 4A5, a medium battle tank used by the collective military of the western states of the Grand Collective of Eurasian Federations (GCEF). The following is an excerpt from an article I wrote about the tank: "Internationally, the Hellhound 4A5, like many of the armoured vehicles of the Western GCEF military, has a formidable reputation. As...

Basilískos V636S

Sorry for the lack of posts over the last while, we've been having some technical difficulties with the website. Anywho, here’s something I did a little while ago. This is the Basilískos V636S, a wheeled tank destroyer/assault gun fielded by the Eastern American States Federation and produced by the Olympus Corporation. Its primary armament is the Toxotes 15SgE, a gun originally designed for the Karkinos 55CnC armoured tank destroyer. The Basilískos V636S is a perfect example of the AESF’s “shoot and scoot” military doctrine, which favours speed and mobility over heavy armour.

Cleric of the Malthusian Order of the Church of Social Darwinism

I doubt if anyone even remembers this one. I posted the pencil stage of this picture back in July of last year. I only got around to finishing it a short while ago. I haven't gotten round to giving it a title or writing up its background information yet, but it's a cleric of the Malthusian Order of the Church of Social Darwinism. The Order of St. Malthus has historically been the militant branch of the Church of Social Darwinism, but are also charged with various clerical duties. They are distinguished by their black vestments, as opposed to the Order of St. Galton, the highest order of the...

September 3290 Web Banner Advertisement for the PL-7000 tablet computer and the PL-7000 mini smartphone produced and marketed by Pulao Technologies Co. Ltd.

Hello all. This piece is entitled "September 3290 Web Banner Advertisement for the PL-7000 tablet computer and the PL-7000 mini smartphone produced and marketed by Pulao Technologies Co. Ltd." This picture actually appears within two of my other pictures that I've posted since June. I wonder how many people can find it? Aside from that, for those among you of a curious nature, Pulao is one of the nine sons of the dragon in Chinese mythology, and is often depicted on top of bells. Well worth researching, and finding out about the dragon's other eight sons. More information about this piece...

Billboard Advertisement for the Jorōgumo Corporation's January 3290 Advertising Campaign.

So, two weeks ago I posted the O-Suzumebachi Aerial Attack Drone, so this week I'm going to do a post about the company that makes it: Jorōgumo. It takes its name from a Japanese mythical creature, with "gumo" meaning "spider" in one version of the name. The little fellas swarming around the central figure are Tsuchigumo, a signature product of the company. You can learn more about Jorōgumo below. "... Jorōgumo is one of the youngest of the Obake Neo-Zaibatsu Conglomerates’ large corporations. Founded on 24 December 3258, it got its start when a group of robotics and computer enthusiasts, who...

O-Suzumebachi Aerial Attack Drone

Hello all. I don't know if you remember my post from the 28th July on Facebook. The one of the guy piloting a drone aircraft. Well, if you were, by any chance, wondering what kind of aircraft he was piloting, look no further. This is an O-Suzumebachi Aerial Attack Drone. O-Suzumebachi is the Japanese word for the Japanese giant hornet, or, to translate it literally, the "giant sparrow bee". Look them up, they're terrifying... More information on the O-Suzumebachi below: O-Suzumebachi Aerial Attack Drone. ... By 3280, having overseen a massive overhaul of the Obake Neo-Zaibatsu Conglomerates’...

Poster for the 3291 Academic Year Enrolment Drive entitled ‘Future’ for Toegye Seowon, featuring ChunHyang of the idol group Aim For Star.

Hello all. So this piece is connected to the last one I posted. It's entitled "Poster for the 3291 Academic Year Enrolment Drive entitled ‘Future’ for Toegye Seowon, featuring ChunHyang of the idol group Aim For Star". It advertises the school that you would have seen in the picture I posted on Facebook back on the 30 th June. Just to let you know (because not everyone who I've talked to about this picture got this) both of the women in this picture are ChunHyang; just an older and younger version. Chunhyang is a character from a Korean musical folktale (or pansori) called Chunhyangga. All of...
