Death Stinger 3D by TankaaKumawani Death Stinger 3D by TankaaKumawani
It's time to put your 3D glasses on once again. Red-cyan 3D glasses, not the blue-orange ones. Red-blue or red-green will work, but not quite nearly as well.

Ah, the Guylos Empire EZ-036 Death Stinger. Personally, I think these are kind of cool, they manage to pack some pretty impressive weapons into a more compact design than the Deathsaurer. (Zoids fans: Was the Gojulas Mariner B developed to combat the Death Stinger for the most part?) It's also quite zippy for something of its size and weight, although mobility is kind of low due to its weight of 320 tons. Sure, some transports on Zi are larger, but something tells me that even the biggest "conventional" terrestrial aircraft (An-225) can only carry 250 tons or so and the largest "oddball" flying boat (Be-2500) can only carry 480-700 tons. (This topic will be revisited later, with accompanying art and Command Wolves with retrorockets.)

New Century Zero saw the Charged Particle Cannons on these utilized as anti-satellite weapons against the ZBC orbital "Judge Satellite" installations. If I decide to put together a d20 Future conversion of Zoids /Zero, the player characters are going to end up trying to save or evacuate a heavily damaged Judge Satellite.

I decided to fix one of my main problems with producing a 3D image: Clutter. There were too many confusing lines, and the colors were always a bit out of sync when I tried doing color images. After tinkering around with the Glowing Edges filter in Photoshop and realizing how much the output looked like a computer rendering, I decided to crop out the backgrounds and produce images by combining the glowing edges images from both sides. (Not to mention that the Death Stinger is bright red and blue, and would be a pain to do a color image for. Its armor is literally #FF0000 and #0000FF.)

As you can see, I've run out of finished anthropomorphic art. What a bummer. We won't be seeing any of that for about two weeks or so, since I have exams next week and have to study.

Hey, at least you're still being productive! If I didn't have essays and professional web-promos to be doing I'd be spending all day on GarageBand and writing furry fiction! But, at least you have a motivation to get things done! I for one still thinks this looks nifty - in fact, I can't think of anyone else I've known or even heard of who produces 3D art, so *tips hat*

Well, I still have my studies to do, and some of this stuff has been buffered simply for the purpose of providing uninterrupted regular postings. (These 3D pictures take about a half hour or so, colored art, depending on complexity, takes around 4 hours.)
