This one was from the piles that was going to be in the book, so figured I can post it here :D

"In the year 2180, December 28th, Japan's newly developed star cruiser "JSS VICTORY" crashed outside the coast of Nemuro during its maiden voyage, the cause of the crash was never released to public but citizens nearby initially reported seeing a bright green light emitted from the engine of the cruiser before it went down. However, when reporters came to interview the citizens a few hours later, all of them reported that they never saw anything wrong with the cruiser. 

The crash outside the coast caused a tsunami that destroyed a small part of the nearby town, within minutes, official has dispatched its rescue and emergency teams and quickly sealed off the area. This is the first major use of a Keisatsu drone as emergency response team, it is estimated that around 120 drones were activated on the site. The drones are specifically modified and its purposed are somewhat different from its law enforcement version, they are mainly tasked with recording and scanning the area for any harmful residues. It is unknown on why the Keisatsu's ERS were carrying weapons and strictly restricted anyone from going near the 15km radius perimeter. "

I think I'll post a painting of the ship next! :D

Here's some others from Neo Japan 2202 series:

DEFCON 0 - LT. MILLER by johnsonting
Update! Managed to squeeze up an update in between works. :iconphelandavion: has some new stocks up and I think its a perfect match for me to do a full body of the defcon 0 suit! Check them out, Phelan is so damn awesome :D

Lt. Miller
Squad leader of Team Zero.

In the year 2039, President Rockwell declared DEFCON 0; a state of maximum readiness, a state where human extinction is imminent.

A year before, an exo-team was given a mission to be deployed near the border of Pakistan, to investigate an Al-Qaeda research facility. Their mission is to infiltrate and retrieve research materials, to prevent any further damages that may occur, and to make sure no one else knows. A mission far more important than their own lives, a mission that was the beginning of an end. 

This is the story of Team Zero, the first who made contact.


More of Defcon 0 here:

Soviet Spider Tank
Behold, the glorious soviet spider tank taking a dump in its natural habitat.

Pooping artillery shells in the cold, the other one had constipation and fell unconscious, survival to the fittest it is.  LOL

Took yesterday piece and rendered a background for it:
Ma.K. SPINNE by johnsonting
Ma.K. SPINNE by johnsonting
Started off as a practice piece on more rounded and circular shapes of a mech, because I realized most of my designs are usually angular and I want to get out of my comfort zone, Maschinen Krieger's design is always one of my all time favorite so i guess it would be fun as well to study them. 

It's based off a couple of models by the legend himself, just for fun! A very good practice and I got to experiment a little more on diesel punk mechs.

I added the layout for fun :P

You can view the one without the layout on:…
Another drop for Neo Japan found in one of my older archives aka graveyard, LOL. This is a rather quick one since i reused most of the parts from my older paintings, and its alot rougher than most of them. haha.

Here's one of the concepts of the some prototypes before the official announcement of the Neo Keisatsu program in Neo Japan. 

If you're interested, heres the photo plate i've used :D…

I'm featured on kotaku today!

Sun Dec 7, 2014, 10:27 PM…

As titled, its so awesome to be featured! Always been a reader on Kotaku and I follow their updates pretty closely, i'm sure most of the people out there are the same as well. So to be featured really means a lot to me, personally! Years back I could only look at articles on Kotaku and thought: "Wish I could be on the website someday..", and now I made it! Feels so awesommmeee! 

Glad you guys are liking the artworks! If you're reading this and on this page via Kotaku, high five to you my friend! Deviantart's community have always been very supportive and I'm glad I started everything here. 
Anyway, I'm greatly honored and humbled by all the kind words given! And I take in all the criticism as well, i always keep that in mind, though i may not be able to satisfy everyone, but i've always hoped to find a balance in them. I will work harder!

At the mean time, hopefully more updates but since the holidays are near it would be a fewer updates, hope everyone is doing well! Have a great christmas guys!

Have a nice day and I'll keep the updates coming!

PS: I'll keep the book info on and the poll as well, it still means a lot if i can continue getting feedbacks :D


As for Neo Japan 2202 project, I need some pretty big favor from you guys! Currently im looking to make Neo Japan 2202 into a book before into a game! (hopefully), so there's a poll above this journal (Main page) that i hope you guys dont mind doing a pretty fast two-click survey for me. If it were to be made into a book, it's going to be roughly like this:

-- English! But will probably have japanese translation/subtexts.
-- Most probably hardcover
-- 150 - 200 pages.
-- 50-100 artworks (Illustrations and sketches)
-- At least 30-50 Exclusive artworks that can only be in the book.
-- The Story, tons of it! Not just plain texts but with visuals as well.
-- Documents from the Neo Japan 2202 universe, maps/files/pictures/blueprints/namecards etc.
-- Price wise, im not really sure right now but i will definitely keep it as low as possible, the same goes to shipping, but if its not too much of a trouble i hope you guys dont mind dropping me a price range you would buy it!
-- Probably a digital ebook version as well (Download code for physical book buyers included)
-- Hopefully some soundtracks! (Currently looking for collaborators, you guys recommend anyone?)
-- Prints / posters inside!

I'm planning to make it like "The Dark Knight Manual" book, its really great in terms of the readability, design and information. It's one of my favorite book and the style is really close to what i want the Neo Japan book to look like! Here's a youtube video review of the book:

Feedbacks! These are the most important! Also, if you are a publication company, feel free to contact me if you're interested in speaking with me about it. Email:

P.S: Any 3D modelers/sculptors want to model some of my characters? :p

Anyway, thank you so much guys and hope to hear from you soon!

Thanks and have a nice day!
