I never had one... but...


So, you may have noticed, jets. Jets are cool.

I've decided to try and draw them again. My god, the things I've forgotten how to do! It's an interesting challenge none the less, and I'm doing my best to regain my swagger. I've lost a few of the tools I used to use, charcoal sticks and so on, so I'll probably need to pick a few up. Going to try and use my pens this time like I had always planned to. I'm not as afraid of losing a line art as I used to be; I've gotten a lot faster.

Going to try and expand on the Red Skies/Red Harvest universe, focus on the countries that I never gave a fair shake. Indonesia, South Korea, China... it'll give me the freedom to break away from my older, more dated designs that I just have an emotional attachment to now :P Hopefully shake some of the blatant nationalism of previous iterations of the universe.

Unus Solum has been my focus for the last few years. The people who follow me for jets, I'm sorry for neglecting you. I hope to, between now and Christmas, make that up to you. I want to start doing air plane commissions going forward, but if you are a long time watcher who wants me to draw up something for you, I'll do it for free :P

Consider it the loyalty bonus :XD:

If you are one of the few Unus Solum fans. Well... things may slow down. Need some time to breathe, step away, and get a new perspective on that. All of the work, lore building, everything you guys have done to help flesh out that concept, I can't thank you enough. Hopefully, one day, we can make that into something special. 

As I said, I have a tumblr. I'll be posting my rough work, concepts, and thoughts on air planes there. Check it out if you are interested.

i wanted to ask you what is your favorite pattern of camo
one of my hobbies is uniform collection and i have a collection of uniforms.  Interestingly my favorite uniform/equipment 
is the DAK From ww2 (no i do not support nazism in anyway)
but i always liked the look of the Deutsches AfrikaKorp and I've spent some time in the desert for research purposes.

Red Coats. 1880's Red Coats in particular. I do appreciate British Indian troops appearance in WW1 as well, but I'll have to give it to the Brits :P

actually being a private researcher in the Zulu culture and warfare
i do like seeing and collecting British zulu war equipment.
I have the uniform of a Royal Natal tribesman cavalry and the helmet
worn by British soldiers of that period.

In my collection passed down the line of my fathers family
i own a fully functional martini henry and an enfield smle.
Being a researcher has many perks.  I was able to handle many
classic firearms.   the Gatling being my favorite!

I like the Boer war uniforms the British army switched to in the late 1890s to the start of the 20th century.

The red coats of the 1870-80s are classic!

He even convinced a student to make a Total War styled strategy game for him and a separate person to write some of those Japanese light novels 0.o

But we shall get there, through our perseverance and charisma!
