Art for a design I posted up.

A bit blank on fluff ideas besides "Taurian Tank".

Also, leaving the tracks and road-wheels completely exposed is generally not a good idea. Of course, it doesn't matter in game terms, but you'll generally not see modern tanks without armor skirts.

I use Doga 3d to model the tank, then run it through the inkpen filter of GIMP a few dozen times, making sure to recolor the various panels on the various parts to get maximum contrast (and thus a nice dark line). Then I combine them all together, lighten them up and make them partially transparent, overlay over the original image, edit on any iconography, and do one last pass to have the shading lines but not lose any detail.

This is what you get.

.... but well behind the current state of the art.

Very static in presentation.

Little or no detail, ie; 'gribble'

Too rough to use as, say, a TRO entry. Fine for inter-page space filler.

As for detailed fluff, I would have to see the design first.
