Artwork Description

This was for the cover of the 'Skinnies Army Book' for 'Starship Troopers the Miniatures Game'. The uniforms and their color scheme were based on the miniature designs rather than the tv show.

The Film got almost everything wrong with Starship Troopers. The bugs were more spider like and less beetle like. They didn't puncture or rend you as if they were a zerg from Starcraft.

No "TankerBugs". Furthermore they could NOT have more thoroughly ruined the powered battle armour. Yes POWERED armour. That padded football-gear they tarted everybody up with for the film was crap.

And Brain bugs slurping out the brains of our boys and girls? PLEASE! First off the brain bugs were small enough that a power armour wearing sergeant carried one in both arms. It was NOT bigger than him. Second, only in Hollywood do we neglect to mention the concept of "incompatible bio-chemistries." Remember that? The thing that makes the bugs that take a bite of us, choke and die? Lmao!

Hollywood fouled up and so did you for not taking your own lead on the "Bugs" appearance. Your art is outstanding, but replication is not creation.

Better luck next time. = )

Thanks Nathan. Illustrating Tolkien would definitely be a dream job. One day I'ld definitely like to take the time and paint some of my favorite scenes from the Hobbit and LOTR.

So, lets see... Fantasy, horror, sci fi... What does that leave... Can I request some epic fantasy? Chris, have you ever tackled Tolkien?
Well, another great picture, love the faces on the aliens. Interesting color scheme at work here too.....

Art at its best.
