STARSHIP TROOPERS: Bug Zapper by Inspector97 STARSHIP TROOPERS: Bug Zapper by Inspector97
Another kick of the can...so to speak.

This time I put my trooper in a battle suit....a bit Intron Depot like.....this is much closer then my last attempt. I wish I could take credit for the mech...but I've seen the design kicking around the net for years. This is my homage to it. Based on the S.A.F.S. designs by Kow Yokoyama and :iconflyingdebris: design [link]


AND I AM NOW OFFICIALLY 100,000+ pageviews...THANKS

Now just to get that many fans..LOL

Its about time someone went with the book vs. the movie look.

I doubt it. Its not popular to write a book that says in the future, earth turns to Fascism to save itself / get into space.

Well the film has been in pre production a while....so that isn't what's stopping it. It's other Hollywood crap

They are doing another one? I was thinking of the ones from 1997. Come to think of it, Edge of Tomorrow come close to more of what the power armor comes off as in the book.

Not sure if Hollywood want to make a pro Nazi movie anytime soon. I am sure there are newer books out there that could cover the power armor story line. But then how does one avoid being too "Halo" like?

I must have seen some of his work to get the inspiration for this.

It's of similar design....but I was unaware of that image. Though I did reference a search for that type of hardsuit

You do beautiful work, but to someone who has read the whole book, this is not Starship Troopers---more like Battletech.
I'd like to see SOMEBODY do powered armor as it was described in the book, not those (expletive) movies.

This is based on some Japanese designs for the suit.....I liked them so I thought I'd draw one.

My first thought was that this is indeed very Shirow-like. More detailed, though. Either way, it's nice work.

Congrats on 100,000 views! I'm doing my part!
