War Commander--Valkyrie by DNA-1 War Commander--Valkyrie by DNA-1
Prize unit for the brand-new WAR COMMANDER event Operation: Archangel, which is running RIGHT NOW! Check it out, Commanders! This is the most elaborate artwork I've done to date for WC, mainly because we wanted a piece of marketing artwork this time, and not just a production concept.

My colleague :iconsharpwriter: gave me an initial design sketch to start things off, and I did the finished illustration you see here.

And yes, before you ask, she'll probably need a flight cap before she takes off. :)

Well, they paid me a salary. :p  I was on staff at Kixeye for 2 years as a concept and marketing artist, and this is one of the things I did during that time. :)

Cool design for the machinery parts.
The circular rotors give it a different sot of look from most jet packs,

The only problem I see with this is her hair length. The fans would suck it in and she would be bald with in seconds of turning them on. Otherwise I really dig the picture.

Love this - she looks like a woman but does not descend into sluthood (i.e. uber boobs, bra and panties as a battle dress) and love the overall textures.

Fantastic!!

The tattoos are excellent details :D

Love those guns, I'd have a hard time not clicking the button while standing around.

Also, great tats down her arm.

Aside from the hair issue, I like how she's really practical. She looks tough and everything about her speaks of competency. She's not hyper-sexualised, and she's not dominating or being dominated by a man. Great work!

I love drawing beautiful women, but I think it's critically important to always do so from a position of character strength and self-respect. If the viewer can't believe that a character is at least in on the action being depicted, then an image becomes exploitative and skeezy.

The bomber jacket, googles, kill marks, and pinup girl all read "WWII pilot" for me, which seemed like a great aesthetic to use for a flying unit character. :)
