Commission - Trooper by Shimmering-Sword Commission - Trooper by Shimmering-Sword
A commission for :iconzachg56: ~Zachg56 of the armor for one of his characters.

Another design based in the StarWars universe, this soldier is part of a planets self run defense forces, though they have ties with the Imperials so some aesthetic and technology is shared.

Isn't a lot of that stuff (including mine) not Ep7 fanart at all? :)

It's possible! My criteria was anything that didn't specifically spin off from the prequels or the Clone Wars cartoon, that looked like it could fit into the new movies. I personally have never read any of the spinoff books, but I know a lot of them are based on those, which is still cool! Incidentally, yours was one of my favs, and if the sequels have Stormtroopers half as cool I'll be pleasantly surprised. :D

I'm not opposed to being on the list, and it doesn't outright say it, I just thought that the 2 paragraphs at the start of the feature imply a bit too much that the shown artwork is Ep7 fanart/speculation.
Have you thought of coding the source link directly into the clickable image? Good to see you crediting, just thought I'd throw that tip out there too.

I just started using wordpress to add pics, but will consider that in the future. Hopefully you'll get some views, would be nice to see this top 10,000! If you get a chance come check out my gallery as well. Cheers!

Dude I (and maybe some other fans) would LOVE it if you could do a Halo piece. Maybe a Spartan-II or something Covenant. I'd really appreciate it and I'd be able to use it in my RPG

There are, but, your art is special. You could do great with the textures of Halo. Maybe a High Charity piece or a space engagement between UNSC and Covenant fleets.

I got a job interview to work on Halo4 back near the first teaser trailer release, but my portfolio isn't geared toward specific game concept art, so someone else got the job.

That's incredible to hear. I'm acquainted with a 343i Tech, we play Minecraft a lot. Met him on Bungie.net.

Anyway, I realize you're more of a free-thinking artist. It was awesome that you even replied to my comment, ha! You're great regardless dude, keep it up.

I notice a lot of artists, even ones that would have more time on their hands, don't reply to comments. I think it's a good way to show that you're a real person, not just an art machine :D It's all you fans that keep me afloat, so I have to be grateful.

Yeah, true- but still, there are some styles that are really identified with SW, and new-ish ones all the time... WraithDT has some cool stuff he's doing for it, too- including the Hutt's fleet...

"Another design based in the StarWars universe"

Nowt wrong with that - If only Lucas had done them like this.

Can hear the comm signals....beautiful.

Love the way you did the armour as unwielding, thick and disproportionate of the body, yet resonating lightness.

You always pull it out of the bag - and never disappoint!

This armor gives off a "trust in me, I'll keep you alive" vibe that stormtrooper armor lacks. If I had to pick a set to steal to blend in, I'd pick this one for the possible fire fight due to identification reveal down the way.
