just some more concepts for :iconahriman42:'s RPG project

so here we have the human settlers of the urban areas like ruined/abandoned cities

1. Settler
the usual bystanders, nothing special

2. Salvager
geared up for long travels, most of his load bearing gear is used for carrying supplies and loot, not much room for ammo

3. Militiaman
at worst they're just settlers with bigger guns, at best they're people with actual know how on combat maybe with a military background even, since they're usually station just outside the settlements they just carry weapons and ammo and not that much in the way of supplies on their persons

up next i'll be doing some more concepts for settlers of different environments such as the open wilderness and toxic areas

good looking gear. I'm excited for the next batch.

You're really good at drawing post apocalyptic guys that arent just covered in mix matched army gear and gas masks.

thanks :D

yeah well i kinda went easy on the gasamsks since nukes weren't really the main cause of the apocalypse here
Cylexus Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2012
Ah yeah that would make sense. Then again, why not just wear gasmasks for... COOLNESS!?

The robot designs in this setting are pretty cool as well, not at all terminator like.
NicklausofKrieg Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012
yeah well there are still irradiated areas so there will be gasmasks

the setting's design direction clearly states that it will not use the terminator's "metal skeleton" design for its robots

I prefer the look of these ipod like commercial robots to the Terminators. Terminators are great and all but why Skynet wasted the production time on building droids complete with teeth and things.

Apart from the Infiltration ones obviously.

That was intentional. Since the whole thing is really a ripoff of terminator, I couldn't just copy the silver skelebots and call it a day, could I? Too obvious.

Instead, I messed around with "cutesy" plausible consumer designs, and of course the Keith Thompson/HR Geiger mashup that is Network.

I prefer your robots, the skeletal Terminators look cool but dont really make sense.

Apart from the Infiltrating T-800 series.

This whole setting is wonderfully intriquing, I'll be keeping an eye on it.

Well, the entire Terminator concept was just working backwards from James Cameron's nightmare about a metal skeleton with red eyes walking out of a fire. Everything in the movie existed to set up that one scene.

Plus, they are freaking terrifying. Psychological warfare, and all that.
