Contact - Jungle Operations by Shimmering-Sword Contact - Jungle Operations by Shimmering-Sword
With Contact RPG released I can show off the full version of this, I posted a cropped version just over a year ago. Progress was full swing on the first book back then and now I'm finishing up my end of things for a second book, with many more to come.

Don't know what Contact, Tactical Alien Defense RPG is? Go check out the website contactrpg.com
For now it's only available in German, but some time in the future we plan to pick up an English publisher.

nice! Drawing overhead views of people always take me a long time to figure out perspective-wise. It seems so simple. Bigger head, smaller feet, start with a rectangular cube for reference, all that. any tips? or just practice?

Practice, a good feel for perspective (I can eyeball it), and rather than using a single rectangle for the person use rectangles for each body apart. It's mostly practice though, gotta do something to get good at it.

This is really amazing. The jungle atmosphere is palpable, and I love the armor on the soldiers. The dogs are awesome - Military Working Dogs are the best. Some of our best assets over in Afghanistan.

It's gotta be nice to have some sharp senses to help the guns.

"Sir?"
"Yeah?"
"We've got all this fancy stuff...but...were still using dogs!"
"This is the border..."
"Yeah?"
"We always use dogs."
"Okay?"
"How would you run if a man was chasing you."
"Fast."
"And a dog?"
"VERY fast."
"There you go..."

all this scene needs now is a cat (jungle cat) to come out of no were, and the dogs give chase. dragging the troopers with them.

Ok to take it seriously now, its really grate work, the thing i like the most is the perspective and the detail especially the grass.

The dogs have been trained to maul PETA employees on sight. Not because it's funny though, but because animals take hypocrisy seriously :)

The scene is so...mmm.
I can't describe it right now, too hungry, might make a food reference.
But like I've told you before, You've inspired me so much Shimmering, so much.
And thank you.

Amazing picture! But one thing, how is that guy to the right supposed to use the binoculars with his helmet? Looks like it could be problematic for him.
