My Gallery. Go check it out... there's plenty more where these 4 pictures came from. ;)

Note: Not everybody is gonna like my stuff and if you're from the ones that don't. Save your comments for yourself. I'm not interested in your ranting. There are other artists out there that make art more suitable to your tastes.

Thanks for understanding. :aww:

Hi! My Name is Panzerfire.

I'm just a regular guy who likes to draw mainly about the military. Pin ups and funny images are also something I like to get into. ;)

How to ask for a commision


To buy a commision you have to send me a note. No mandatory title is required but if you can put "Commision:..." on it, it would be appreciated. Purely for organizational porpouses.

You can ask for about anything. This time I'm not going to be picky about which type of projects I do and which I don't. 'Though let's not get way too carried away shall we? :iconiloveitmoreplz:

Your note should contain a basic idea of what the picture consists of and a list of details that I should be careful to add and/or emphasize in the picture. I will likely discuss possible options on the composition of the picture but at the end of the day the customer is king. Which means you make the call and I should do the picture as close to your specifications as possible.

Sources to some reference material is appreciated, specially if it's rare or hard to find online.

Prices


I haven't thought of a specific price list in US Dollars and Euros but well, every new element to a picture does add to the ultimate price.
For starters I'll be doing the following:
Characters: 5 Euros (Lineart only), 10 Euros (Color) for each character on the picture. Large groups of background characters (Like a zombie horde for example) will not be counted as this but rather as part of background work.

Vehicles: 10 Euros (Lineart Only), 20 Euros (Color) for each vehicle present in the picture. Sometimes 'though vehicles in the background can have so little detail that I will not charge this fee for vehicles in the background. As with large groups of people, this will be charged as background work.

Background: This one can be tricky to price. Like I said before, the more detail it has the more expensive it'll be. But I can't describe really how much it could cost because a background can encompass a lot of different things.
Well I guess for deserts and open fields (Oceans included) it should be around 5 Euros (Lineart only) and 10 Euros (Color), Light urban scenarios €10 (Lineart) and €15 (color), heavy urban scenarios €15 (lineart) and €20 (color), Forest/Jungle scenarios €20 (Lineart) and €30 (Color). But that is just to get a starter idea.

Payment Method


There will be two payment methods. The first one and perhaps the one you guys and myself are more comfortable with, will be Paypal. I used to shy away from using Paypal but I have seen the light and will embrace it like my fellow brothers and sisters in art.

Western Union will remain an alternative payment method in case Paypal casts some doubts on some of you. I've used Western Union before and it is a safe mechanism to transfer money. However beware because for this you will need to give out some personal information. Don't worry, if I remember correctly it's just name, surname, location. Just about the usual for this type of transfers.

Full payment is required before work can begin. I will however sketch out your idea for free so you get an idea of how the final picture should be looking like.

Delivery times


This too is dependable on the detail of the picture but usually for smaller drawings I should take about a week upon payment. Medium sized projects may take up to two weeks. And if it's a seriously complex and large drawing, I might have to take three weeksor a bit more to finish it. I take commisions very seriously. Unlike gifts or free requests like back in the old days, for which I took way too much time to finish them, I will focus entirely on delivering the picture on the promised time schedual.

The Commisions list


Unlike before I will not establish a limited cue for commisions. I don't think I would ever fill such a list anyways. :lmao: But do take into account that I will be doing these commisions in order of arrival so some might have to wait a bit before I get to your project. Therefore hold on payment until I tell you that your work is next in the cue.

The list so far!

The Panzer's Lounge


The chatroom is back! But not here in DeviantArt. I've decided to bring back the chatroom in the shape of a discord channel.

Please do take into account I may sometimes be unavailable to comment even if I look connected at all times.

Basic rules for the chatroom are: No Spam. No posting offensive or NSFW material (Until I make the appropriate subchannel for it). No insulting or verbally abusing other members. "Insults" as friendly chatter will be allowed for those that are familiar in the group but newcomers beware. There's a limit to the amount of bullshit I can take from people I'm not familiar with. But with time anything goes.

The link to the end of the world is here: discord.gg/quK9e9n

For the love of god don't send memes at 4 o'clock in the morning. :rofl: I've killed for less.

I'll get to all your comments ASAP.
I'll see you in the Battlefield! :salute:
  • Listening to: Sabaton, Hiroyuki Sawano

The Ambush
"Medved 3 is down! I repeat, Medved 3 is down!" said the commander of the platoon to the rest of the unit.
"That idiot forgot to turn on the curtain..." he added. Driver and gunner were too busy to take notice as they had just dodged a bullet themselves.

"Got visual on those assholes?" asked the commander to his gunner. "Da! They're reloading their TOWs!" he replied.
"Don't let them! FIRE!"


Back with another picture to share with you guys. Here we see two Russian-made T-90As as part of a larger armored force being ambushed by a number of ATGM emplacements equiped with the US-made BGM-71 TOW. As you can see in the background, the other other T-90A took a hit and his ammo rack detonated inmediately. The one in the foreground managed to jam the aiming of another TOW missile thanks to it's Shtora-1 softkill Active Protection System.

The wars in Iraq and specially the Syrian Civil War have proven that even some of the best main battle tanks of the world are extremely vulnerable to longe-range anti-tank guided missiles. The role of the tank in the modern battlefield has become clouded because of the relative high availability of ATGM systems among insurgent forces. The Russians have long since begun to install APS on their tanks since the Cold War and the T-90 is not the exception. It's Shtora-1 APS is designed to "dazzle" incoming optical tracked guided missiles and make them miss their target. Other russian APS introduced in later tanks like the T-90M or the T-14 are designed to properly intercept the missile mid-air to reduce potential penetration or damage to the tank.


Done in about a week I have to say I am rather pleased with the time I invested in this. 'Though I still need to work more on that aspect of my work. I did initially start this project as a 1st in a series of fanart images for the game Armored Warfare, developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by My.com. But then as I was working on this picture in the computer, this happened: aw.my.com/us/news/general/myco…
I don't want to dwell too much into the current shitstorm the game just landed itself into but to keep it short, it looks like AW may not last for long because a huge chunk of the non-russian playerbase (Which was already very low before the announcement) has decided to call it quits with the game for good in protest of the developer switch. I will write a journal later on this topic in a few days when the game publishers decide to comment a bit on the future of the game... if there's any. Man I even made a clean and large shaped version of the AW logo for this picture which I had to remove. :hmm:

I may still proper AW fanart in the future but that depends on whether the game survives the transition. Next few works should be commisions! :D I will be writing the announcement later today so stay tuned for a journal on that if you're interested.

I will reply to all your comments in the next few days. Hope you guys like this.

I'll see you in the Battlefield! :salute:

lol just my kind of luck. I start making some serious fanart for Armored Warfare and the game just rolls over and dies.

Well not really. But the publisher My.com has decided to part ways from Obisidian Entertainment who was developing the game for them and transfered the work to Russia. If the game carries on, I would not be surprised if it starts cattering to the russian gaming community a lot. Heck the game in Russia is already called "Project: Armata".

Here's the link to the official announcement: aw.my.com/us/news/general/myco…

Yeah you guys can probably see I'm not thrilled about the idea of playing a russian game. That's why I don't play the Wargaming (Belarussian) games WoT or WoWs or the Gaijin Ent.'s WarThunder.

Well I guess I will still give it a chance because tanks, can't say no to tanks. But whether the game survives the major shitstorm it just started in the AW community, it'll be another matter.

Regarding the T-90 picture, I will continue work on it. It's ready on pencil and scanned and I started some preliminary work on it but I have to start over again because the painting experiment did not go too well. This weekend I'll be mostly busy with cleaning duties so picture may be done sometime after Monday. Wednesday most likely. I was hoping to have it finished by now. But the last couple of days I've been sick and helping get the house cleaned up for visits on Monday. :roll:

Picture may not be AW fanart anymore 'though. That remains to be seen.
I forgot how complicated it was to draw T-90 turrets. ^^;
The attack of Panzu-chan
It is long known that I am addicted to Tuna.... very addicted... I run on the stuff (As a matter of fact tonight I'm having Tuna pie).

Unfortunately for Tomogi I just ate her best friend. She may one day take revenge against the Panzu-chan. Looking forward to draw that project one day. ;D

Tomogi is a creation from :iconndtwofives:. She's a personification of Tuna and he draw her as a joke regarding my tuna addiction. :iconhagglefish: made a chibi version of her that I used as a reference for this comic. He has since pretty much cleaned his entire gallery since then but you can still see a colored version of his lineart made by :icondoujio: here: fav.me/d7bybl3

I drew the panels while I was in Germany but the idea for this comic was fairly old. I thought of this back in 2014! At last I've made it come to reality! :D

Here is some more artwork of Tomogi: By :iconndtwofives: : fav.me/d77rwcd and fav.me/d7csp5w
By :iconevov1: : fav.me/d7bj7jc
By :iconthomchen114: : fav.me/d7fo0dh

Hope you guys like it. Next project will be a tank picture that I'll start drawing from scratch this week. Hopefully I can draw it fast so I can start commisions ASAP. Stay tuned for those. ;D

I'll see you in the Battlefield! :salute:

I also noted when I search "Philippine Army", more searches revealed Communist New People's Army were noted than the actual army.

An issue inherent to the popularity of any online medium. Once it becomes too populat, it becomes impossible to properly police.
