SCII - Banshee Babe by 47ness SCII - Banshee Babe by 47ness
— E N G I N E S . S C R E A M I N G —

[EDIT: just wanted to fix some minor lighting/color issues; carry on~]

Something I've been tinkering with for the past couple of days; the Terran Banshee pilot as a mecha musume. Purely for fun. NOT MEANT TO BE TAKEN AS A SERIOUS DESIGN. XD;;;

- please click download for full view -

Photoshop CS3, a few minor photo samples + textures, 20% of pose referenced off a Leyendecker piece, and a TON of hours. :phew:

Add. ref:

More SCII mecha-musume silliness (...sorta):

Oh, I see, is not to be taken seriously, but this is good, as it helps free our minds to draw and create as much we want =D And what fascinates me so much in this design is that... everything looks so functional, looks like evfrything has a proper function, looks so.... feasible =D Like the propellers, rockets, tubes and gatling look guns =D of course, coupled with a beautiful face and sexy body ;)

Yeah, it's quite surreal since mecha-musume is the ultimate suspension of disbelief. XD

I can see her spinning in the air like an out of control bottle rocket, with all that powerful thrust. It is a very sexy and fun design.:D

Glad you think so; I went through over a dozen sketches trying to figure out just how to turn a helicopter gunship into a girl. :phew:

47 this is SO awesome. I knew it was SC related when it popped up in my feed... just after watching some good ol' LAGTV's FRAG for mental health this is super appropriate.

Maybe if I was a little more confident in my skills I'd devote a Youtube channel to drawing lectures.

That's stunning! Your execution is so amazing that i could hear she says 'Engine Screaming'
The rocketeer-style pose is really great as well. (:

Thanks. For some reason I dig her, despite being a nameless, nondescript NPC with no real backstory. ŠP (At least she's a highly favored unit in SCII, so score one for girls getting to kick more ass in the sequel!) ;D

I was tempted to put rivets on everything, but this is set in the way-off future and the Terran Armada is too hip for existing technology. XD;

I see what you did there.. :iconiseeplz:

I agree, rivets would have definatly aged it somewhat. Though it would be very interesting to see the same armor redisgned with steampunk in mind.

Not that i have a one track mind or anything..:bucktooth:

I should probably branch out my own interests a bit xD;;; CR's dominating my gallery.

I kinda miss doing myths and fantasy and such~

Hehe, though the dedicated fantasy ppl love to encroach on steampunk. They can't help but make their dwarf a ragged engineer and stick her in a boiler room, or have everyone travel by airship (when they have a perfectly healthy population of wyverns and griffins to ride on...!)

Wyverns! Griffs!

The oldest stuff in my gallery was pretty WoW heavy. I still play but onyl extremely casually now. I dont think ive logged on for ages. I actually have CR to thank for that! xD Was never a raider tho, just liked the RP servers. Still do. :iconhappytearsplz:
