Front Mission: Satellite Rain by ukitakumuki Front Mission: Satellite Rain by ukitakumuki
Hi all! It's been so long since I've been able to post work that I've done!

These concept artworks were done in late 2008 for the game Front Mission Evolved. Front Mission is a cult-classic mecha franchise by Square Enix that inspired my love for robots when I was a youngster. It was an insane privilege for IFS and myself to have been able to contribute to it.

_____________________________________________

[EDITED: higher res file + sharpened image]

Image info:

Regarding the title-- Yes, I am a huge fan of the Syndicate series (its a classic Bullfrog game). :p I really can't wait to see what EA and Starbreeze will come up with for the next installment.

Anyways, this was a quick one to illustrate an orbital elevator falling through the atmosphere as the terrorist force (from the previous images) brings the fight into the heart of the city. Shown here are brown local military Frost-model Wanzers deployed alongside infantry to defend a city block, blissfully unaware of the... gravity of the situation.

-Skan Srisuwan for his wonderful Wanzer redesigns.

-Verawat Verasunthorn who translated Skan's designs into 3D models, over which a number were used as 'bases' for me to paint over in these artworks to maintain accuracy and as a time saver.

-With Skan's permission, I'd taken design liberties with some of his designs, throwing in my own ideas and flavour to the mix; hopefully providing an extra layer of 'grounded-ness' or grittiness that I felt resonated with the spirit of Front Mission. ;)

Ah stunning peice of work! The violent, yet calm pose of the mecha (robot?) compared to the almost anxious human beside it. And the background! Great work man.

very nice piece!! although i could point something out..

until i read the description, i would not have guessed that the space elevator was actually falling.
I was thinking that maybe some falling debris above the elevator and possibly a sharper bend in the elevator itself would help in showing the action of a massive structure falling towards the planet.. but that's just me :D

this piece is great because, not only does it exemplify the magic a piece can take on itself, but it shows many of the mundane brush strokes that work together to create the illusion of a clear image. thank you master artist. :D

I think I spent more time cycling weapons than actually playing-- just to hear the cool V.O that announces each weapon name. I mean shit.. "Uzi" never sounded cooler. haha.
