‘Graduation Day’ for @shmoo92, because she too is finishing something momentous and extraordinary.
(It’s appropriate, then, that this was a pain in the arse; kids, don’t wait until ¾ of the way through painting to realise you’ve forgotten half the uniform details. If someone wants to message me about how I’ve messed up Stacker’s ribbons, please do. My reference pic had crazy green Alaskan LOCCENT lighting.)
(No celebrities were harmed in the making of this and God I hope none are offended by how they turned out.)
I just noticed another small detail in the first scene. When Becket brothers entering the drive suit room, you can see the technicians stand in such a nice formation. Which is for me really cool because if you are rangers, they will welcome you with such a stance and gives you badass entrance. Also it gives me the idea the crews are really proud with their job to be the Jaeger technicians/ Ranger crews.
This might be unimportant so i’m gonna say let this be my excuse to draw this XD
Summary: “Well, damn,” said Mako, fully at the end of his patience. “I must not have thought about it between the slaughter that happened under my watch and my brother dying in the hospital.” (BTP Prompt #58- The Beach)
A/N: The PacificRim!AU nobody asked for.
If there was anything good about piloting, it was that it came with slightly better rations than a dock or wall-building job. Plus, it had a tad more security than his old job on the black market.
From what Mako had heard, people used to fight to get into a Jaeger. Pilots were the biggest celebrities: their faces were blown up to fit on billboards, toys were released in their image, their interviews held on nighttime news channels and broadcasted across the world. They were greeted after every battle with fanfare and congratulations. They received letters from little kids thanking them for saving the world.
Nowadays, the few pilots that were left were lucky to get a decent turnout at their funerals when they died. But. The rations were a plus.
the drawing is messy as fuck, like I smeared the hole thing with my hand, and despite the fact that i cut my hand today with a knife twice, I somehow managed to doddle something xDD thou i fucked up a little in some places… too tired to redraw.. UGh *SLEEP PLEASE*
A mix for the Rangers, the pilots of the almighty jaegers. For those who did not cower in the face of the apocalypse, but instead stood against it. For those who heard the question “Where would you rather die; here, or in a Jaeger?” and answered without hesitating.
