Tirpitz over the Western Front, 1928 (for Mac) by ~moknin
Set the contrast lower for Mac usersMy first digital painting by photoshop! I surprised myself by finishing it in only 5 days instead of weeks as I thought I am new to this mediumLast year I had this idea of a Flash game set in an alternative 1928 where WW1 never ended and both side developed fleet of heavily-armed airships to break the stalemate on land. Although it never materializes, the images of gigantic flying battleship was always in my head. Afterall I just like to play with what give the impression of BIG and HUGE.

I feel like typing shit anyway:The ‘Tirpitz’ is the first ship in the Kaiserliche Luftflotte (Imperial Air Fleet), which was founded as a solution to the ever-thickening Allied trenchs accumulated in a decade of war. She participated in the gas bombardment on London, intended to demoralize Allied leadership. Instead it compelled the Allies to develop its own air fleet. As the design began to show its age she was reassigned to Berlin to terrorize endless food rioters and rioting workers, to patrol against arms struggles from Trotsky’s Bolshevik Russia and anarchist collectives in Spain.The soldiers are from the Landwehr reserve, seen from their old uniform. However the guy in the left is carrying a standardized K-98AZ carbine (the G-98 was phased out due to its cumbersomeness). His comrade is carrying an old MG-08/15, which is being phased out for the air-cooling MG-08/26.
