Contact - Firing Range by Shimmering-Sword Contact - Firing Range by Shimmering-Sword
Here's another nibble at what I've been working on for Contact. I've done quite a few of these illustrations already and there are a lot more to come.

Here's a regular sight on an Omega base, soldiers training to empty their magazines down range in the fastest times possible. Don't try this at home, these guys are pros and utilize your tax dollars with extreme prejudice.

I love this piece, everything from the stylized targets downrange to the natural background. You can tell a lot of time and thought went into this. Nice job!

They probably spent more money on hair gel than on ammunition.

The background really reminds me of sword base from Halo: Reach

Uh, why am I getting thought of X-com when I look at the paper targets?

I don't think I referenced x-com for those, but the game in general if influenced by x-com.

You didn't. I was just commenting that some of your targets looked like grays/sectiods(sp?)

And I only noticed after seeing x-com enemy unknown remake trailers.
