Ballista unit by GarretAJ Ballista unit by GarretAJ
This idea is based around the mixing old with new archetype. I have what would be some sort of war creature with a atypical plasma spear launcher on the back. I think I'm going to play around with this idea a little more.

2.5 hours in Ps. CS5

I love the feel the mount gives, it's got a very powerful feel without seeming overly lumbering, interesting that.

I really like this, the idea of mounting it on some big armoured creature is very original and a brilliant idea.

I love this! Very original. I think of weirder stuff like this all the time and nobody ever seems interested.

You did a really nice job with the old vs. new theme - I love the details that look golden and crafted next to the futuristic weapon. Awesome!

Wow. I'm not a huge magic/fantasy guy but this is so versatile in style that it could be classified any number of ways. I see a mix of the natural potential with future technology and the ancient orient, and I like it.
