I figured the original painting of this needed updating, so here you go guys. It's way better than the original. IMO :) I changed the title too because you have to agree that "Invasion" didn't fit well since it doesn't show much action.

Original Info: "I've been wanting to paint something like this in a while. I know it might seem as if these warriors would die by a heat stroke! Think about it for a sec, have some thoughts about the future. What if these uniforms have some sort of cooling system running underneath? I mean technology is getting smaller by the years, I've read about a new lcd tv thats about 2-3 centimeters thick. I am pretty sure our soldiers in the future will be able to do things like no other :)

Might do a in-helmet hud painting sometime, should be fun with all of this idea that's flowing in my head.

ps cs3. cintiq."

there are already cooling systems like what you describe. The only problem is that the current ones just don't tend to stand up to the wear and tear of a warzone

Futuristic Fallujah. Anyway, this is bomber. I like.

What are they? Paratroopers?
Boomerang098 Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2013
What makes you think that? Just asking.
BETA368 Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2013
The helmets, they look like the kind paratroopers would use for high altitude, where the air's too thin to think.
Boomerang098 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013
Oh okay, hey what do you think the time period is that these guys are fighting in? Cuz It looks like something that would be around in 30 years.
BETA368 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013
More like half that.
Boomerang098 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013
15 years? I'll give it 20 then.

ya know when i think about it, it might be cooler if you put a hud around the picture so it seems like your watching it from inside one of those helms....

BANG BANG said the xm-42 pulse rifle in the hand of the sniper, who is lurking from that tower in the background. And all the little soldiers are dead. :D Awsome picture, i like the trees especially.

BlackSector: Subject HORIZON, I've got my eye on that mod! What a coincidence, finding its concept artist here...

Also, yes, this suit [link] has air conditioning in it. Already invented! Just not used. I don't believe..

Oh, and, great picture.
Crispyreaper Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Nice work! The soldiers look like something you might see on the battlefield in a year or so, what with the equipment they are packing(Is that a custom m4 variant I see? Or a SAW with a clip? Cant really tell...)

(An its funny, you mentioned in your description something about a cooling system, well a friend of mine an me decided to draw up some schematics for a cooling system in some armor sorta like that about a month ago! Just caught me as funny that you would mention something like it...)

Great painting! I love the contrast of light and shadow and the color looks perfect.[link]

And about the heat stroke thing, we manage well with more gear than that as it is. We don't have any fans in our equipment now. You would be surprised how well you can handle 130 F heat in 80+ Lbs of gear when you have to. Fans would be nice though.[link]
