Bat Starfighter 3/5 View

    Newer Older

    So, way back when I got the Bat Tank. To my surprise, it contained a misprinted torso - a white Batman.

    My first thought was, "Cool. Batman in outer space. Of course he'd be white." Or maybe he's part of that crisis thing that DC had.

    At any rate, thoughts for the design finally gelled a few weeks ago. I think you can see mostly nnenn and Adrian Florea in it, but the overall shape comes from Ikaruga and Radiant Silvergun, two awesome shmups from Treasure.

    BS Gallery already ready.

      Somehow the shape looks familiar to me.

      I like it, exept for the orange canopy.

      Edit: Now I know where I've seen this shape before:

      Nothing is terribly original these days, but who cares! I love the orange screen, best part of it all, stands out like a sore thumb! a good sore thumb!

      I usually hate trans-orange canopies, but it's a nice complement to the dark blue here. A trans-black one would have been too dull.

      Amazing, I have actually played one of your shmups after all. This reminds me of Kyle Vereze's work too. Looks wonderful!

      And to Kyle: I probably butchered your name. Sorry!

      Hot damn Peter. This is one sweet batride. The fig itself is awesome but this just takes it over the top. And ditto on the trans orange, perfect choice.

      Nifty, and very Peterlmorissy - if that makes any sense.

      I admire if from a build/technique/style standpoint, but from a character standpoint, it doesn't seem to fit Batman. Nothing identifies it as part of the Bat-fleet, and the huge cannons seem out of place for someone who normally eschews guns.

      Overall, though, great work.

      Superb, spacey starfighter.

      And to others >> I don't own this shaping; it's been around the SHMUPs scene for a bit.

      1. I love ikaruga.
      2. White and dark blue are the fucking bomb.
      3. Yeah, i just said "bomb". You have the rights to flame me.
