You play as an intergalatic truck driver on your way to deliver some parts to a factory on some planet 10 million miles away. Unfortunately, you have to pass through enemy territory in order to get to your destination on time. Thankfully, you have a heapload of kickass weapons to keep you company. Blast your way through alien crap and blow those green bastards to kingdom come, and hope to god you don't become late for the delivery.

So I was originally going to make an ordinary shmup with jets and all, but I thought that was boring. Then I remember the movie Spaceballs and that that Han Solo parody drove a RV with wings strapped on it. That gave me an idea to make it into a space truck instead, and packed with weapons because why not?

It took me half a week to figure out how to make the palette work for this image. The idea of using the colors as value came with good results at the end.

You can probably tell that I can't draw spaceship designs worth crap.

Well I can't always win. In fact, I'm rather happy being in second place.

And here I was convinced this would win! Huh!

Creative idea and brilliant execution. Bummed out over the lack of recognition.

Wow, that planet! And great color usage. Some of this reminds me how I hate draw the same things in defferent angles and views :)

Feels like a third blue ribbon in a row to me.
