Nice Shot by rubendevela Nice Shot by rubendevela
This is a work I recently redid from something I made last year [link] , so it has a mixture of several different coloring techniques used side by side. Also, I was unhappy with the first version, so it received many corrections. Combined with the heavy use of 3d renders in the image, it ended up quite uneven in places. With all those revisions, I doubt I will ever be totally happy with this pic. Despite that, I think all the elements blend together nicely when the image is taken as a whole.

The depicted setting is ridiculous on purpose! No need to complain on how she can carry an enormous railgun, where the heat goes after the weapon is fired, etc. etc...

The beverage brand the characters are drinking, "C4", is a parody on a brand of flavored iced tea available in the Philippines.

She looks like an alternate version of Haruhara Haruko from FLCL. I remember in the second episode she mentioned being a "first class space patrol officer," and while it's not like you could take anything she said as absolute fact, one could interpret this as a scene from her life as an officer before jumping the rails to chase down Atomsk.

People whined about the practicality?

I mean seriously. It's completely obvious to *me* that the shooter is clearly a cyborg belying her body weight, also enabling her to carry the massive gun. And that tank on the front of the weapons is *clearly* part of a liquid gas based coolant system!

It's could *so* totally work!

there is so much I enjoy about this picture. the details are gorgeous. All of the different light glare affects on the clothing easily identifies the possible fabrics. The buildigns look very interesting, with where and how much reflection you added, and so much detail! The background sky is beautiful. And the color scheme flowed nicely. I like the placement of everything here, because after you focus on the gun, the pink-haired woman in spandex, and the lighting affects, you see the woman in brown, who has such toned down color elements that you eye is allowed to relax and see the image all together. God, just... so much detail.

Ah yes, much better. And don't be disheartened by those who shout "INACCURATE!!!" It actually looks fairly realistic to me. Although I'm not quite sure what that yellow canister would be for, besides coolant perhaps...

She can carry the gun because the suit she's wearing enhances her strength (see youtube > "power suit"), the gun is liquid cooled hence the canister of coolant on the end of the barrel, and she just pulled off a shot without the necessary aid of the auto targeting computer! I see nothing rediculous here, lol

And by far, the most awesome depiction of a railgun on deviantart.
Where the heat goes? Well, in your comment on "Railgun Girls", you've written, that it uses superconductors, which don't produce waste-heat,
why she can carry it? Maybe she's a super-enhanced future-cyborg-girl or it's due to the C4 ;P.
