Palladium Books has published Robotech games for 30 years but the license has now expired and it will not be renewed. This is especially bad news for the already problem haunted Robotech RPG Tactics (RPT) Kickstarter which took US$1.44 million in 2013. The second wave of backer rewards will not be coming but Palladium founder […]
Sink00 is a bit of a mystery. The artist posts to their tumblr, sharing some great sci-fi art, but doesn’t offer any text or anything about themselves. Thank goodness for reverse image searches. Slide Sink00’s art into Google and you’ll probably find yourself back at Shinku’s ArtStation. Skinku is a concept artist from South Korea […]
Michael Stephens is an artist, gamer and runner from the northwest of England. I rather like his Twitter profile which he describes as a backup drive for his mind. Stephens hasn’t done much with his Society6 profile, but has picked up 11 followers and has made this simple but effective Appleseed sketch available. [I fancy […]
Juan Pablo Roldan is a concept artist and visual developer. You can keep track of his brilliant creations via his Tumblr, blog or even his fairly active Twitter account at @JuanPaRoldan.

I don’t know much about Quan Pham Tung but I know I like his work. There’s a full range of style here; from the brush-effect paintings through to clean lines of sci-fi art. You can check out his professional profile at phamtungquan.com or admire more of his work on ArtStation or Blogger.

There’s an impressive 50 points of articulation which include the fingers, a mouth that can be opened, a rotatable circular saw and an extendable backpack […]
This is a review of both parts of Robotics;Notes. I was able to watch both parts in quick succession because of a hurt foot and compulsory residence on the sofa. It makes a big difference to the series. Part 1 (episodes 1 to 11) are great but give the impression of a carefully paced, feel […]
Halloween is that time of year you get to turn your 6-month old son into a Sunder from the MechWarrior series. At least; use him as part of the costume. Ryan and Geraint’s MechWarrior costume was several years in the planning (long before Geraint was born). It’s good to see the project come to life. […]
I think the Appleseed series is underrated. It’s always been great fun and always pushed ahead to explore with what animation can do. Appleseed Alpha is no exception. At times, for the scenery, I actually wondered whether it was a photo still that had been animated over the top of. The animation quality in Appleseed […]
