I need to say this is one of the best tanks Ive seen in PJ persay. Reminds me heavily from Battlefield Bad Company series, even though I know it isnt inspired by that. Anyway this is very well AA:d and detailed. Only flaw I happened to spot is that at some points on the ground the snow seems a bit too "melted" when it is clearly in the middle of the winter... Or meaby its spring?

Ravagence (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 2/19/2011 06:34

The trees are fantastic!

4tochkin (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/11/2011 04:53

Ok, you can check it now. 

piiichan (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/10/2011 16:30


I am interested in a WIP, to study your workflow.

I agree with your point of view about war machines: they look great, powerful, and heavy, they are very aesthetic. But their purpose is far from being attracting.

Maybe it's that strange combination that makes them so special...

HummingBird (Level 1 Thug) @ 1/10/2011 08:38

OMG! Fav!

Ambient (Level 6 Major) @ 1/9/2011 14:46

 My only crit is that I think you could have gotten a lot more done with the shading on the tank, more ambiance/metalic/shadows (from trees behind camera view). Ambiance in particular because one thing about snow is that it lights everything up. Plus, if you can't tell, I like ambiance :3

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 1/9/2011 08:00

ahh those desings and smoooth curves. it remidns me of that sexy stage from Xmen vs Street Figther, while you fight over a plane on an elevator.


simply delicious.

Hey everyone!

First of all, thanks for your comments and favs.

I`m agree with some perspective issues ( I was doing this after New Year celebration, and during pixeling proccess had drink few botles of beer too :) Maybe this why I didn`t look so strongly at my tank:) Sorry about these :) I have 25 frames for WIP, so maybe I`ll add it some later, if somebody interested in it.  

to ui_: yeah I like tanks and other millitary vehicles, but I like it in "peace" format, not like war machines for killing people or something. But more I like nature, its really beautifull, there are many interesting ideas and views in it.

to ultimaodin: :) I remembered  my old monitor, after your words :)

to piiichan: no I didn`t use some picture or photo, but I`m inspired by some works of old-school russian landscape painters of XIX-XX .

And again, to all, have a nice and productive year!


avo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/6/2011 12:42

Cool as always!

ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 1/6/2011 00:02

 seens like you really love tanks!!! XDDD...

Geti (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 1/5/2011 22:46

Wow, delicious work, especially the background.

ultimaodin (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 1/5/2011 18:09

I'm currently running on a computer that has warped pixels (some are larger/longer/wider than others) and this still looks completely beautiful. Fantastic work here!

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 1/5/2011 13:15

Woo, the vanishing bg is great.

JoshF (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/5/2011 05:54

Lovely tank design.

GormenGhast (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/4/2011 06:14

Really great. Love the colours of the metal.

EdJr (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/4/2011 05:24

 Yeah, I smell a top too!

Cemf (Level 1 Gangster) @ 1/4/2011 05:07

thumaszz (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/4/2011 04:29

This is a amazing piece!

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 1/4/2011 03:13

cool,great work =) 

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 1/4/2011 03:00

The tree on the right makes me wanna cry... Not even mentioning the tank... amazing.

Jabber (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 1/4/2011 01:18

 The landscape amazes me more than the tank, which looks somewhat more cartoonish to me, but the whole thing is pretty amazing. Great job. I love the way the colors fade with the distance.

piiichan (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/4/2011 00:54

WOW. Very impressive!!! The snow is amazing, you must have used a real picture as a model...?


The only little things I noticed:

- is it the canon shadow on the hull? If it is, it looks misplaced

- a perspective issue with the front left of the tank, inner side, close to the snow


carrion (Level 7 Underboss) @ 1/4/2011 00:22

 Amazing pixeling
/me bows 

Tyvon (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 1/3/2011 22:39


rautiocination (Level 1 Gangster) @ 1/3/2011 22:11

NobleValerian (Level 6 Manager) @ 1/3/2011 21:05

 that's pretty sweet

Hiuru (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 1/3/2011 20:20

 Okay, wow. I love your tank but your background...wow lol Amazing snow and trees!

Argyle (Level 6 Manager) @ 1/3/2011 19:49

The snow spatter on the trees is what takes this from an awesome picture of a tank to a really well rendered complete scene for me.  Great job again!

Drazelic (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/3/2011 19:42

Impressive hueshifting in the shadowed colors!

zi-double (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 1/3/2011 18:00

Happy new year and to you... You back to the tanks again :) nice ...

Mistiqueshis (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/3/2011 15:12
