elite: dangerous

This is a silly and long-promised doodle for the peeps over at Mobius PvE, with one of the head admin’s cat. There was a joke about the cat being the actual boss, and having his own personal Cobra Mk. 3 to fly around on and get things in the house.

 

While I did let it sit a bit longer than I linked, I’m glad with the final result. Apparently drawing a cat on a spaceship does turn some heads.

I saw this floating around on Instagram, and decided to follow the subgroup of people that did “Best 12” instead of #2018bestnine. I took my best piece out of each month and made the collage out of that. Most of these are in my gallery, some are missing as they’re not posted int he other sections of my site yet. But do enjoy; looking forward to how 2019’s will look at the end of the year.

So my online friend CDMR Taranava ran a “greeting card” contest with the Mobius PVE group; the prize? Two Galnet paint pack for the Anaconda. Me and CMDR Jack Webb were the lucky winners to walk away with said prizes.

 

Personally, I’m happy with how this came out. I see a few things that could be tweaked, and I did this on someone else’s PC as I took a desk break away from my normal computer for Christmas. I have some other gift art I need to get out of the way, but this came first as I forgot the contest ended Sunday. Oops. ;_;

This was something I cooked up upon a person I’ve known from an Elite: Dangerous group called my Type-10 a space turtle. While this was nothing new, she had previous described other ships with varying names. I decided that this finally needed to be put down for posterity, along with sharing to the entire world.

 

This did get posted on Reddit with almost 1,000 upvotes and 25,000 views. Suffice to say it was well received. In fact, commenters wanted a Part 2. Looks like I have my work cut out for me.

 

Inspiration from CMDR Taranava.

With the whole Gnosis snafu that happened, there were quite a number of unhappy pilots. More notably a good chunk of explorers were parked there, most equipped with unarmed Asp Explorers (no weapons = lighter weight = bigger jump range). Thanks to a very priceless comment in one Reddit post, this comic was the result of that.

Hats off to you, poor AspX explorers. Let’s hope the odds are in your favor the next time.

Now and then we have contests in the Mobius PVE group. Most of these revolve around cartography data, finding griefers and even art contests. This recent one was for who posted the most amount of genuine content, which would result in being in the top ten contributors in the Facebook group.

 

The ten lucky boffins got picked, but I got special mention for the comics of the group! So when filling out the form to get my sticker packs, I had to upload “photo proof” of why I qualified for stickers. I got snarky instead, composing this instead of a screenshot.

 

I love Elite: Dangerous, I really do. But it’s a shame the only “fighter-like” ship is an Eagle or the things you launch. Even then, it wasn’t to my liking. So I doctored mine a bit. External missile points, a WW2 paint scheme and even a refueling probe on the nose.

 

Let’s hope the stickers get here soon.

Something I did for one of the people over at the ElitePVE/Mobius group; it was her birthday and I figured I’d finish up an old piece from January into a short comic.

 

The sassy and punny CMDR Taranava graces us with a worthwhile Anaconda joke. In the background is CMDR DEAMONSRUN9393, who is very grounded with anime tropes; hence his “nosebleed” reaction to Taranava perched on the Anaconda.
