    Thank you everyone! @SeeroseThe animation has a total of 128 frames recorded at a speed of 30 FPS. @Joshua Lamusga I'm not sure if it fully qualifies, as the trees in the foreground are silhouettes, and technically the tank has some lighting highlights on its turret. I'll have to give it another shot, I think. --- It's been a bit of awhile, but I'm back! Here's a new scene for February.

    Hello everyone, Happy New Year! It's a new year, and so of course there will be new drawings. Here's the first piece of 2018, an animated one. (Animated, click to view) Alternate link if it doesn't load: While this scene wasn't animated with Paint.NET, everything else was done with it. The tanks, shrubs, ground, clouds, background, dust clouds, and tank animation frames were all done by hand in PDN, and it was then put into Game Maker: Studio and animated with the editor.

    Thank you everyone! Thanks Joshua! It sounds like a pretty hard challenge, I think I'll try doing it in 2018. No silhouettes or high contrasts will definitely be quite difficult. --- Here's one last piece for 2017! This time, we're going to space.

    Thanks guys! I'm glad you like it. --- I felt my previous scene set in Rio oozed a bit too much despair as @lynxster4 said, so here's a much brighter scene for the weekend. Still experimenting with colors and trying to get my scenes to look more realistic. I think this one goes pretty well with this music too.

    Thank you, everyone! --- Here's a scene for the weekend, entitled "Coffee Break".

    Thank you Lynxster! As for why they need such heavy fire-power, perhaps it's just a deterrent or them being prepared for anything. Thanks Welshblue! Thank you very much Seerose! Thanks Pixey! I'm glad you like it. Here's a quick piece I did of some guardsmen observing the morning fog over a bridge. Inspired by the Charles bridge in one of my favorite locations around the world: Prague. And happy (late) Thanksgiving everyone!

    Thank you everyone! --- Here's a new scene. I wanted to do some experimenting with foliage and weathering, and for awhile now do something related to Brazil and Rio de Janeiro, so I present a scene fittingly entitled "Favelas"!

    That is a beautiful Christmas card, @LionsDragon! Great job.

    Thank you Pixey! Since you liked the VW, here it is separate from the scene so you can see it in its full glory. Thanks Andrew! It'd be probably be a bit over-powered and would get nerfed after a week in the game. Thank you LionsDragon! Thank you Seerose! I'm glad you like it. In this universe, they certainly do! And thank you! Thanks Ego Eram Reputo and @Josh L for the suggestion! I really appreciate it. Here's today's scene. After watching a documentary on submarines, I thought it would be fun to make a scene of a submersible, after a few hours I came up with this:

    Thanks everyone! Here's today's scene, inspired by various images of the British army's Berlin Infantry Brigade during the Cold War and the Berlin wall. Their tanks had an unusual urban camouflage pattern which I tried my best to recreate.

    Thank you all very much! Here is today's scene. More experimenting with 3D drawings and sci-fi aircraft design.

    Seeing as how October begins tomorrow, I decided I wanted to do some scenes inspired by the 1917 Russian October Revolution after looking at some old paintings of the Russian Winter Palace. These are very quickly done, but I hope they still have the same quality as my previous scenes!

    @LionsDragon Thanks! I am not in the military nor have served in it, but I spend a significant amount of time studying various photographs of military vehicles when designing these to make them as detailed as possible. @TrevorOutlaw Thank you for your kind words. Here's a scene I call "Hold The Line" where two heavy combat hardsuits of the 9th Mobile Guard Corps fight off some invading martian forces on the surface of Mars in the middle of the night. Here's one of the suits separate from the scene, alongside a space infantryman for scale.

    Thanks guys! Here's another scene, fresh out of the oven. I call this one "Heavy Armor". Three A/LFV-91 legged infantry fighting vehicles move through thick fog in a forest located somewhere in the South Korean countryside.

    "It's going to be a long trip, gentlemen. I hope you've got plenty of rest, rations, and water, because we're gonna have to march all the way through and out of the Malibar front without stopping."
