Last Mission by Artgerm Last Mission by Artgerm
Ok, this is supposed to be the first "military" concept art of me. I was inspired by Kai's work ukitakumuki somehow, and try to have a taste of his passion. I guess not too bad for a first attempt huh. :)

Done in Painter. 2 hrs.

Nice try!
I love Ukitakumikis work, two. I think you catched what is typical for his work.
Keep trying!

Rising-Phoenix87 Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's brilliant, lovely concept... The armour is beautiful... And the helmet is great... That butterfly, adds so much character to the image... It's not distracting, but it kinda shows a delicassy to a soldier (even though that sounds like BS) but I love it...

Some of the best juxstapositioning I have ever seen. Amazing. Dark and epic.

Very good concept.

Very cool, but the butterfly is a great touch.
CHROMAX Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2005
very good, reminds on mangas like BLAME! or the anime Jin-Roh.
DuncanLong Featured By Owner May 23, 2005
Very nice. The contrast of the butterfly to the warrior is a stroke of genius.

Im willing to start using Painter to make some drawings too. What tools do you use to make paintings like this one?
Chris65412 Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2005
Wow I just don't see how you guy's (I say you guy's because I know there are a lot of people who can make these just fantastic peices of art) in such a short time. And using the computer. This looks like it was painted...with real paint. I applaud you and admire and envy your skills. I hope one day I may be as good...or even a fraction.

Fantastic first attempt! Great title. I like how you've positioned the break in the clouds to be aligned with the moth. Great menacing mask for the soldier. :+fav:

Absolutely amazing, everything about this peice just screams instant fav and watch to me :dance: . Dont know what it is about gas masks but i love the look of them and this has to be one of the coolest ive ever seen :D .
FreekishlyTwiztd Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2005
Great pic! The butterfly on the antennae is a nice touch which helps give the whole piece a more sombre feel. :+fav:
K-L-Designs Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2005   General Artist
Reminds me a lot of Jin-Roh, but it's all cool. *nods* I love the atmosphere of the picture, especially with how you have the butterfly resting on the end of his antenna. It adds such symbolism to the picture that probably wouldn't be there other wise.

But I definately can feel the emotion of how the soldier must feel, walking towards his next battle. An inevitable fate awaiting him in the near future. And the gray tones of the picture definately portray this emotion, and makes me feel like I'm right there as he marches on.

All in all, I love this piece, and am definately going to add to my faves.

reminds me of the movie Wolf Brigade.
