Armored Railway Gun DbV 'EBER' by Shrinecat Armored Railway Gun DbV 'EBER' by Shrinecat
"Though less famous than her smaller self-propelled cousins, the Db Type 5 railway artillery carriage was perhaps the most influential on the course of the decades-long campaign in the extensively fortified Misa region. In addition to her redoubt-crushing siege gun, the type's ample gun service and machine shop decks often served as a secondary maintenance and field-service facility for rear echelon vehicles and equipment."

Digital painting in photoshop, from my original pencil sketch design which I modified along the way. Not my fastest work, but I found the end result satisfying.

I might use your drawing to try emulate the texturing (which I am still poor at) to apply to my concept stuff, you know the white lines that make metal look like real metal. You paid a lot of attention to individual lighting on the individual components as well as reflected light from other components which gives the overall feel of the drawing.

Sorry to get back to you late - but thanks for enjoying my work!
Did you have any luck rendering metal texture?

Nowadays I have a full time job so I am down to posting sketches and finishing up old drawings. 

I have done it before with the Hammerhead, especially on minigun and main gun though limited in scope:The Flying Battleship (Ver.2) by SoFDMC

This will make a great unit in some Command and Conquer style game. 'All friendly units parked near the Railway gun will repair automatically'.

Gorgeous pic . The weapon looks fantastic but historically speaking this sort of weapon did not perform well .
