Commission - Human Resistance by Shimmering-Sword Commission - Human Resistance by Shimmering-Sword
3 months since my last submission, sorry for being so quiet lately. I've been working on my art book since November so my attention was focused there. Now I need to resume freelance work as my book funding is running out, gotta pay those bills. So, you'll finally see me resume regular art submission to DA, lots of commission work on the way.

This is a commission for :iconalpha-dilophosaurus: Alpha-Dilophosaurus
Aliens are sieging earth and here Russian forces hold out in their own land. Troops equipped with heavy body armor and powerful rifles cover a 4 legged tank that has been immobilized. In the distance along the front lines the troops are meeting similar resistance as their enemies prove difficult to bring down.

I love how you are able to draw the far off background as well. Just adds so much depth to the scene, fantastic!

Edit: Would be better to see those "aliens" using some kind of energy weaponry though. I noticed the dead alien in the bottom left corner of the drawing, and saw what looked like ammunition/buckshot/shells on a strap/ammo belt. Ruined the immersion a little. Will you change that?

How does an Alien using a ballistic weapon ruin immersion for you? Watch more scifi, aliens use ballistic weapons all the time.

Well my argument was that Aliens would typically have technology differences than ours and not discover ballistics but instead energy weaponization instead..
I'll go away now. :(

Haha, I wanted to point out that being strict about that kind of thinking leads to it's own kind of "boring". A race would discover ballistics before they discover enery weapons, and it's possible they will find advancing those ballistic weapons more efficient than energy weapons. It's ok to present you ideas, but be careful how you word them, and remember that commissioned work doesn't leave everything up to the artist.

Oh okay, my bad. Didn't know people who commissioned liked to go into that kind of detail as well, seeing as I've never commissioned. 
Your first point is very valid, that is true.
Thanks.

Great scene!
I like that most of the aliens are far away and have little detail to them.

Amazing, I love the feel of a massive battle that this scene has.

I don't think the hammer and sickle are exclusively a cccp icon, they represent more than that.
