Starship Trooper by ohida Starship Trooper by ohida
My take on Heinlein's Starship Troopers (that's the book, not the movie, kiddos!)

You're Welcome!
If you ever decide that you want to try your hand at doing up some artwork for a boardgame RPG, let me know. I've got a little something I'm working on right now tentatively named, The Altus Chronicols.

I'm sorry, I mean't Verhoeven, must be exhausted, the verhoeven movie ruined the Story.

<grin> Well, he certainly took it in a crappy direction. The animated series was decent, though!

And thanks!

I love the book! Good job! just had my older brother read it aswell, he also loved it. If you get a chance, if you liked that, read the Forever War. Not as good, but good in it's own right!

Thanks! I was pretty proud of this back when I drew it a long time ago, but now all I see are the errors. I guess that's how it goes. ;)

Well drawn. Excelent design. Terrible TERRIBLE coloring.

ohida Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2006
Thanks for the comment. I think it would be more accurate to say terrible scan, than terrible coloring, and since this was a gift, I can't really get another shot at it.

However, if the coloring itself was that off, I'd be interested in hearing suggestions for improvement.

Well photoshop is always a nifty thing that people, especially comic book artists have been tinkering around with in order to color their stuff.

By the way -- the book for Starship Troopers is kick ass, and nothing like the movie.

But I like the picture, it's just that the coloring detracts from the coolness factor.

Yea, how do you get duty, honor, country, all that massive right wing politics in a picture... good question? "It's for the species people" just does not sound right coming from a happy liberal ant hill. Wait, I FORGOT! the Nazis were liberal socialist. Typical liberal, rooting for those communistic bugs! Holy Meca, don't you know which side your on?

Great rendition of Heinlein's original - just a pity there's no way to somehow get the massive right wing politics in the book into a picture...

ohida Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2006
Well, not into this picture... But I can imagine the "Flying Soldier" propoganda posters (a la The Rocketeer.) That might do it.

Lol, I wasn't saying your art sucked. The painting is good. I was talking about in relation to the mobile infantry in the movie.

<grin> Well, that's even more true, then. But the CGI serial had it pretty good, though.
