Victor-Three-Victor by MrAverage Victor-Three-Victor by MrAverage
I admit that the three-tone scheme I used here is not my own invention. I got the idea from *Shimmering-Sword [link] who used the technique very successfully, and more skillfully, on some BattleTech tank designs. But I thought the look was so damned effective that I used it on a piece of my own.

This, kids, is what happens when there is no World War II, and atomic bombs aren't invented until the 1970's: conventional warfare goes to seed. At least, that's what happened in the world of my online Graphic Novel, 6-Commando. [link]

Here we see one of the sister formations to the eponymous military unit of the story. This is 4-Commando, and they operate in Somalia, which is part of the East African Disrecognized Zone. And with them is their Autonomous Armored Vehicle, a robotic "Rumbler" tank with no crew, named Victor-Three-Victor. Victor was "born" at the Nordyne Defense Dynamics plant in Calgary, Alberta on December 14, 1996, and he has been with 4-Commando ever since. He is not to be trifled with. He represents the apex of United Nations Alliance tank and artificial intelligence technology. Victor is capable of withstanding atomic blasts, and in the event of loss of command and control, can continue to operate on his own for up to three years, or until his ammunition supplies are depleted.

I thought from the thumbnail this might be by David White (Mecha Master) or Anthony Scroggins (Shimmering Sword).

It's not but it's still awesome.

Ha! I should be so fortunate as to be compared to his work. My wholly inadequate efforts have been repeatedly turned down by the concept art community - I'm too much a cartoonist, I guess.

Don't make Vic angry. You wouldn't like him when he's angry!

Don't Understand the reply, Mr. Average. I like the piece. I didn't mean to type "arr", I meant to hit the t for "art".

I love the art.

:D

I figured as much. Just playing a little. Though Vic's "ARR!" is quite potent, I can assure you!

The three-tone technique is very nice when pulled off right. It's clean snd simple, but gives a good feel of dimensionality. I think you pulled it off pretty well!
Plus, that's a frikkin' huge tank. What's its tonnage?
