Flak Tractor by MikeDoscher Flak Tractor by MikeDoscher
The gun mount may be zwilling, but the body is weak.

Ha. Ha, I say.

I did this originally as a quick digital sketch at lunch last week, but decided to use it as a way to work on my digital painting skills.

I liked Metal Slug, what can I say?

It's worth noting early concept art for the first Metal Slug listed a "Type VI AFV" as some anti-aircraft tank. Later on in development it was scrapped.

My best guess is that the sprites would have been something like the Anti-Aircraft Gun from the Middle-Son 1986 mounted on a Girida-O chassis.

I like how yours has dual flak cannons rather than a heavy machine gun though, it'd make for an interesting enemy.

If it were a boss, I could see it being this two stage thing where you have to dodge shots from the turret for the first stage, and for the second stage you have some sort of missile launcher come up through the turret ring. It could even be manned by the same gunner and just have him look scorched and manic in the second stage. I'd love it to be some sort of running fight- maybe going downhill through some sort of ruins or shantytown.

Spectacular! I've been a fan of your work for a while, and I have got to say that your designs are some of the most thought out I've seen. A lot of artists seem to make really loose designs, but yours are tight, crisp, and detailed. Love the painting work you're getting into as well. In this piece in particular, there's a great use of contrast. Keep up the good work!

Metal Slug is awesome. I'm still in awe of the amazing pixel work in that game. Especially the animations are amazingly well done. You can really see alot of love went into the first 2.

Oh, this drawing, it is also awesome.

Nice. Both 'SD' as well as still functional looking.

Now, them being Kommando Mice against Panzer Cats?
