Wow! Amazing work! Love it!

I was wandering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges lifeisinfinity.eu5.org/infinit… (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :) (Smile)

Lot of thanks for your time ;) (Wink)

The sherman's shape doesn't look too correct but the rest of the picture is very well done.

I had to look at some reference photos to just make sure I had a rough idea on how the vehicles should look, but the rest is from scratch,

I'm a native, watching from a distance.

I'm a bird, wondering if these new twolegs have new food.

I'm a Japanese spy.

I'm an eighteen-year-old, foolishly disappointed at not killing Nazis.

I'm a forty-year-old, strangely relieved at not killing anyone.

Looks great, reminds me of a level
from Call of duty when you have
to crawl to avoid the tanks. ;)

The tank looks a bit odd (for the tracks to be precise), but the atmosphere and scenery is great.

Very nice work! Though I think the smoke billowing in the foreground could be slightly less transparent; I think it would look better if it blotted out part of the tank. That's just preference though :)
