Starcraft Terran Nuke Rider Poster by ProlificPen Starcraft Terran Nuke Rider Poster by ProlificPen
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".

Please also check out my previous Protoss themed poster, and look for the upcoming Zerg one to complete the set. If you'd like to order either huge 18" by 24" print, please send me an email at ydavros@gmail.com, or just go to my online store:

They are $10 + S&H, (international rates are a little bit more).

you should scan the book by John Ringo called "when the Devil dances" the main character in that book would fit this pic like a glove...

I hope I go out in a way half that awesome.  Only I'd be shooting the swarm the whole way down.
