X-COM: DEEP RISING Avenger Craft by ukitakumuki X-COM: DEEP RISING Avenger Craft by ukitakumuki
In early 2010, Strategycore.co.uk approached me to help create art for an XCOM tribute project they had brewing. One does not say no to any of that.
Although I turned down the offer to do the sequential art given other commitments at the time, I settled on the concept art phase, which proved to be a delightful experience.
The greatest challenge was to re-imagine the original pixel art into a more tangible form, adding my own preferences for functionality while attempting to honour the aesthetic read of the originals.

5 years on, Olav and Pedro, the crazy geniuses who hired me, have come through with that vision- a multi-media comic with a gorgeous presentation: comic.strategycore.co.uk/#!/
Your passion inspires me..!

One on most dreaded jobs students have got in arithmetic is managing word troubles. If at any time students results in away any question having an exam, you may well be sure it could be a expression problem. The main reason for here is the student regularly has problems in figuring out what steps to take into account to examine and understand what the issue is approximately. newspaperabroad

Hi.

Is it a hovercraft or a boat?

Also, the missiles on the right compartment don't seem launchable.

The commander has strange research priorities. He developed the most powerful craft in the known galaxy, but he didn't research any weapons and has to equip it with avalanche missiles an an autocannon.
