Firefight by jonchan Firefight by jonchan
The Spec Force recce team was compromised at about 0317hrs local time when a trooper's active camouflage unit failed and revealed his position.

As they had already obtained most of the intel neccessary for the mission, they hurriedly made an defensive exfil, but lost the team 2IC, 2WO Alex Cheng, KIA. The survivors succesfully returned to the Forward Operating Base at approximately 0653hrs. 2WO Cheng was posthumously awarded the Medal Of Honor, and is survived by his wife Rui Ying and son, Tim.

*Ukitakumukui did this one called shrapnel that I've always felt was one of my faves, so I came up with something as a study based on techniques, with a similar theme, 'coz i always liked military. Liked this piece so much I took longer than usual to experiment, and it ended up different from what I'd initially intended. Alot of Ghost In The Shell influence as I recently saw a rerun of my favorite episode. I actually like the military mechs better than the tachikomas.*

I have to settle job admin in the morning. Am already slightly delirious right now, but I enjoyed this one...3 hrs of fun!;)

I love GITS and those mechs look really awesome. The roughness of the lines is great

thanks! My natural drawing style is very loose, so my stuff comes out like that.

Don't think so. It was Ukitakumuki's painting. It's one of my faves, you can see it yourself:)
