Once more into the frey.
Into the last good fight I will every know.
Live and die this day.
Live and die... This day.
(The Grey. 2012)


This is another concept illustration for Fortress Earth: [link]
This time it shows one of the aliens massive ships moving in on an airbase (out of shot) its compliment of fighters take out some F15's the last one being shot out of the sky just as the huge ship emerges from a large storm cloud. A group of other F15's engage the target with no idea if their missiles will have any effect.

The ships design was meant to seem kind of organic and menacing, the race are called the Drag'oo so I kind of took that and made their large atmospheric carrier ships look like dragons, they have many wing like structures that move to stabalise the ships and many of the surface plates move as well.

Enjoy :ahoy:

Depending on whether or not you drew this before the Avengers... if you did, then they totally stole the idea of their alien ships from this!

Have you seen Battle LA? Rather good film due to the modern military V alien aspect and the aliens are done in such a way that it fits well. Well worth a watch.
