Posters: Starcraft Propaganda

Available for purchase online.

Finally finished with this next Starcraft themed fan art, this time for the Terran race. I've been slowly working on this for over a month now (I've been so distracted with corporate contracts and also the Diablo 3 release).

Lots of challenges here with the foreshortened leg, and all the circles and cylinders, never easy to paint! Starcraft fans will recognize the tag line "Nuclear Launch Detected" as something that precedes the most devastating, yet, challenging to pull off offensive in the game.

The imagery of a guy riding a nuke like a bucking bronco is actually an homage to director Stanley Kubrik's classic cold war satire film "Dr. Strangelove, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb".
