Extraction on Papetoon by JECBrush Extraction on Papetoon by JECBrush
:iconjack-13:*Jack-13 requested a commission that required me to convert his photos of a particular fox and recreate the fox into a pilot in the Star Fox universe. Name and back story is largely up to the commissioner.

This image gave me the opportunity to do a bit of visual research on a whole bunch of subjects to improve and sharpen some skills. Thankfully, YouTube has helicopter dustoff videos which helped with the sand blowing effect. Also, I took sometime to read up on exposure on a old Photoshop magazine.

Hope you like it! :)

Character belongs to *Jack-13
Star Fox & Lylat Wars Nintendo

Awesome work. I like the use of a firearm in a world that uses laser weaponry, as a matter of fact my own SF OC Dagger Greene uses a S&W Model 686P. I also like how a planet that isn't very famous to most is used in this.

Hmmm...it's good.
But needs to fix something.
May I??

Is that a projectile-firing weapon ???
Wow...Lylatian still uses projectile-firing weapon???
That's new.

So, it looks like a SOCOM.
Needs a bigger slide stop, and a safety lock.
I can't see a magazine catch, her thumb hided it.
The gun was big. Especialy for a pistol. Not really. Unless you want its caliber is .45 Colt :lol: hahahaha

Her flight suit is good. But...something not right.
Pilots never carry their sidearm on their thighs.
But thier abdomens (left side in common) under their left breast.
I can't see the chevron. Her name badge, unit insignia.

Well, this is not Earth. This is Lylat System, and everything is different than ours. ;P

Yep, that is a projectile firing weapon.

It's manufactured by GIGA Industries, based on my SF fanfic.

The M301A Handcannon is one in a series of show pistols primarily designed to generate military and paramilitary interest with solid-based heavy 'smart' pistols. It's selling points include an impressive muzzle velocity at 2,140m/s with a large "magazine" of 20 rounds when set at 21g projectile slugs. Recoil is mitigated somewhat by the gun's hefty frame allowing shorter recovery between shots. It's report is extremely loud and the muzzle flash is large which gives a powerful impression to friends and enemies in view. Ear protection is highly recommended.

In the world of Star Fox, sidearms seem to be commonly carried by mercenary pilot groups as seen in SSBB along their thighs. This makes sense for the Star Fox Team and Star Wolf Team as they need to occasionally combat enemies without their fighters in extended missions as required.

Her name wasn't mentioned or discussed with the commissioner. Her unit wasn't discussed either, therefore it wasn't added in and wasn't an objective for her design.

Julius, you made me laugh. :lol: hahahahahahahahahaah

Seriously, I laughed when you say "Ear protection is highly recommended."

No no, I don't mean anything. :) But...in battlefield, you don't need...wait, don't want, no...CAN'T use ear protection, of course.
No one use it, it's too dangerous.
No matter how much it's "super loud" or "extreme loud"...
It's for training.

Remind me canondiers, they really have a very good ears. :)

It's your fan-fic anyway. :D

But... I must say, Nintendo did the wrong thing :)
Or...it was mercenary, not military personel.

Anyway, I like this work. :)

Thanks! Yeah, the main cast are all mercs and don't necessarily adhere to standard military conventions.

Ohhh...that's bothering me.
You see Julius, our beloved team, Star Fox, is a mercenary team.
And we've all knew what mercenary is.

They are somekind of outlaw, fight for money, no central government.
No rules, just engage.

Back to the past, I didn't know why Nintendo created Star Fox team as mercenary team.
Kids don't understand what that mean. Really.
Only us, adult.

How can we turn that bad look into something better???

What make the mercenary become hero????
We knew that is Star Fox, but the others????

At all the kids that I know are pretty smart. A plenty of them here know what a mercenary is and the ones that have at least played Star Fox know that that particular mercenary team are the good guys.

The idea of a extra-militaristic party has been pretty grounded in a positive light here in the US among the youth culture due to media. Such merc groups, hero teams, and etc. have been commonly depicted on the side of good.

Oh man. Too much awesome in one image! ;)

Okay, so I love her design, you've really done well with the facial features here and the hair :) The blue in her suit is a nice contrast with her auburn fur and blends nicely with the silver of the ships hull which is totally awesome in design by the way (loving the blue retro boosters) not to mention the lovely rock face textures and billowing sand effect, which you've totally nailed by the way. I just love the use of browns, reds, blues and silvers in this image.

Oh and last but not least the lovely holographics on the gun are a neat touch :)

As usual, your Star Fox art presents a great amount of detail, creativity and potential ideas for Nintendo to use in the next Star Fox title. The fact that you used holograms for the character's HUD and her gun's targeting system are icing on this awesome cake.

Fantastic design and mech boots. The use of the holograms for a HUD and on the gun are nice touches. The texture on the rock wall is really impressive as well.

The HUD was fun to do because it was simple. :) I kinda cheated a bit with the rock wall by adding a some texture overlay from an existing photo I've found.

Thanks!
