Battletech - Field Manual 3145 by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - Field Manual 3145 by Shimmering-Sword
Now that the last few book from the 3145 line have published I can show off my final pieces, the big print covers.

This is the cover for Field Manual 3145, the first full print cover I've done officially for Battletech.
A Republic Malice stands over a downed Tundra Wolf, covering Simian Battle Armor is they help evacuate the crew of a disabled Winston Combat Vehicle. A massive Ares tripod and a Prefect cover the rear as a slow retreat to their dropships is made during an assault by Clan Wolf's Beta Galaxy.

Flying-Debris might do cool concepts, but I think I like your full-covers more.

I believe I've said this before, but you create some truly impressive paintings of mechs. I love the one front and center. (And any similarities to a Mach II, to me, is a good thing...)

I don't like thick lasers. The intensity they need to cut armor is more important than how wide the beam is.

I do a fair bit of work for them, not as much as they wish at times. I do tons of work for the fans though.

this is epic. I can imagine the ground shaking from these gigantic machines thundering across the land, the explosions and shrieks of rockets, gauss guns, and the like, and the desperation as they fall back. Very, Very well done. I wish I had a quarter of your talent.

Those are pretty good looking mechs, of course I'd always make changes when doing them myself, but at least they're not examples of mechs that need a lot of fixing.
