Battletech Fire for Effect cover by BrotherOstavia Battletech Fire for Effect cover by BrotherOstavia
Finally I'm able to show my first cover for Battletech. I've been following the universe since I was a kid  so being part of the official artists was a blast for me (I even had the opportunity to draw a madcat). Hope you like it guys!

Photoshop CS6 and Wacom Intuos4.

What was this a cover for in Battletech? Mechwarrior online, or something else?

Awesome cover, Brother, and congrats on doing an official cover for Battletech!! :) Love how he just stomps right on the defeated mech at his feet, he just loves to dominate doesn't he?

I agree with Steel-Raven.  This is probably the best Thug I have seen.  You did an excellent job of tweaking the original design but at the same time keeping it instantly recognizable. I also enjoy the composition...you don't see many Thugs post-SLDF Era...let alone squishing a clan mech.  Well done.

Love the detail here - feels heavy and metallic - and just plain brutal!

These are the best PPC shots I have ever seen!

Appears to be a ComStar Thug stepping on teh cockpit of a Wolf's Dragoons... Hellbringer? While a Dragoon Timber Wolf fires on it from the rear. 

Great piece, really love it.

Very nice work. Great use of Thug there, and stomping on Dragoons is allways good.

Love it! Hope you're doing more covers, because this one is great!
