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.

Here is some back story. At the end of the 21st century the world saw a mass economic reshuffle, countries who relied heavily on oil and other fossil fuels were hit the hardest. A Neo-Socialist movement crept in, starting not in Russia but in Alaska. Alaska now with it's oil all but useless(not that it had much left) become very impoverished, along with Russia & China. This was the perfect climate for Socialist ideals to reignite, not the centralist form but more like a confederate one. The soviets formed an alliance with the alien race known as the Cerruon. The Soviet Alliance officially formed in 2120 with some of its former territories and new ones in China, Africa, Alaska and space colonies. It lasted to 2184 when The Great Red War broke out due to tensions between them and the alien race the Clhattians mainly with the Confederation of Dalloyn Systems. The soviets were found to be supporting revolutions in the territories of  the Confederation of Dalloyn Systems. Mass sanctions against the soviets especially in energy trade caused their economy to reach the brink of collapse. In September of 2184 they attacked the joint European-Dalloyn colonial planet of  Thauclite and the helium 3 mining gas giant it orbited. The picture here shows the last years of the war when the allies attacked the soviet alliances weak point earth. It was not counting on the war spreading past the colonies.

I missed you a LOOOT !

But you're here again :D

So, I love it, firstly because of the aliens : finally we get some with metallic armors ! And not something really strange, no, something we can almost say "seems to be human". Great.
Secondly, the tank is really cool :D But the problem with the four legged ones is that they get quickly immobilized, no ?
Thirdly, the russians with soviet emblem ^-^

Dynamic, beautifully realized, with excellent attention to detail and a very nice, sparing use of effects in the form of muzzle flashes and line of fire, not to mention excellent perspective. Beautiful.

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?
