Contact - Area 51 by Shimmering-Sword Contact - Area 51 by Shimmering-Sword
Cover art for the 3rd Contact RPG book to be released. This time a visit to Area 51, Omega operatives must feel right at home :)
(yep, red october composition)

Contact 'Tactical Alien Defense RPG' is currently a German only tabletop RPG, though we're working on getting it published in English.
Visit CONTACTRPG.COM for info.

We are still looking to hire new artists to assist in production. If you think you can create paintings at this level of quality, in this style, send me a note.

Were you watching Total Recall when you came up with this picture? It really reminds me of one shootout scene in particular towards the end.

It has drama, with minimal effort.

The detail is superb - espeically the roof with its gantries.

Best work so far :)

Nice cover- reminds me of the Schwarzenegger movie Total Recall!! :) Are those the dreaded Men in Black? Going by the original theory that the men in black are alien spies, that dude had better know how to use his big revolver...
