Starship Trooper by CrimsonMagpie Starship Trooper by CrimsonMagpie
*gzegzolka asked me if I could depict his character Ruff in my own style. I'd just gotten Jim Burns' artbook Transluminal for Christmas and was feeling all inspired to do some hard sci-fi, so I decided to amalgamate the two.

For those of you unfamiliar with his work Jim Burns has a very slick, detailed style incorporating a lot of airbrush. He's amazing at making things look genuinely futuristic and alien, to the extend he's been called the greatest sci-fi artest ever. I agree with this statement.
Check out his agents website - [link]

As a consequence of this inspiration I decided to my usual practice of working quickly and instead exercise the virtue of patience. I spent way too long designing the gun; originally I tried to design a laser gun, but ended up designing what I hope is a realistic looking assault rifle. :P

I ripped the title from a well-known song, tell my who it's by for a cookie. :aww:

To put it simple sir, a crossover of more mature star fox (Limited violence and more developed psychological profiles and experiences/traumas ) and starship Troopers or USCM (Aliens) or UNN Troops (System Shock 2). Could this work?

I can't honestly comment on that since I don't know what Star Fox or System Shock 2 are, and haven't seen Starship Troopers (yet). :P
