Transforming Hover Bike by newtman001 Transforming Hover Bike by newtman001
A bit of ancient history! I just found this a few minutes ago; it was done as part of my set of "on spec" pieces for my first job with Palladium Books.

I do believe this was published in the Rifts Conversion Book...

Anyway, I still like this design. There are some things I'd change now, but overall I'm happy with it for 1990-vintage work.

I've always been a big fan of your work. I grew up with Rifts books and your artwork -Heck I saw your stuff years before I started watching anime. I have always been awed by your larger pieces, the Dragon Dreadnought, big spaceships, the Evil Millennium Tree. Seeing your DA page has made me go back and spend the last few hours looking through the art in those books. The last hour of that time I spent going through three of the Rifts books taking webcam pics of your art.


If you are able to, you should post more of this on DA. 

Thanks for being so awesome <3,
DD

Thanks Again,

This was one of my favorites from the RIFTS back in the 90's. It was my player characters ambition in life to own one of these. I love the intricate style of your work. I LOVED your work that was published in the Atlantis book!!!! The rune weapons, the Equestrian, and Serpent power armor, and the Metztla, especialy the Kreelong and Kreewarr Carpaces.

I'd love to see more like this.

Equestrian and Serpent were probably my faves. I wrote one of them (forget which one) up in GURPS and used them as a final boss in one of my games. I had my Amiga (shows you how long ago this was) looping the Final Fantasy battle music in the background.
