Some art for Robotech: Genesis Pits
by Palladium Books [link]
UEEF Exploratory Corps soldier in CVR-3 "Ride Armor". Armed with a H-90 Gallant modular energy weapon system in "rifle" mode, and an RL-6 60mm Rocket Launcher slung over his shoulder. Finally, a shemagh adds a jaunty accent, and personalizes him a bit. This is one of four pieces I did that got into the book, and one of two cyclone riders.
Funny thing is, when I was initially drawing this, I was drawing from the head, down. Before I drew in the legs, the most common comment I got while drawing this at MidWest FurFest [link]
was, "Is that Master Chief?".
It does kinda look like him, in an EVA-permutation helmet. (Then again, if you hunt down some of the MOSPEADA pre-production art by IMAI, there looks like a few armor permutations in there!)
