While that looks impressive and all that, my concern is how big the fuel tanks must be to move that behemoth. Its like the equivalent of a cruise ship only flying.

Ah, the return of the bi-plane!   That's going to need a LOT of catering trucks!   Great idea.

One day we will have fission engines capable of producing ridiculous power without any negative effects or waste.... and then we shall build THIS!
.......well, once we figure out how to screw with physics a little bit, too.

Great work, it makes the Sci-fi fan in me do the dance of joy.

Awesome job, I like the hint of a cruise ship. Was that intentional?

That is absolutely fantastic! I love how you took the basic idea for a plane and gave it a second par of wings and a pool. It came out gorgeously!

Holy shit! First of all, AMAZING concept. Really dig that sick design. Second thing - just beat the game last night (holy fuck, it's good) and it's a shame that they didn't do that kind of airplane level. It would perfectly fit into that ridiculous, exaggerated style. Anyway, love your concepts for the game. Did you have a chance to meet Suda51 in person? :D Do you know what other concept artists/illustrators worked for the K.I.D.?
Tonyholmsten Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Hi there! sorry for the...month old reply, haven't checked my Deviantart in some time.

First off, thanks for enjoying the game!
And yes, I worked at the grasshopper office, so I saw him every time he was in the office (although he was always busy and out and about, so i didn't see him much!)
Azazalee Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Haha, no problem, man. Thanks for replying! :)
Heh, that's what I thought :) though, it must feel awesome to work on his team.
Sorry if I ask too many questions, but how is the overall atmosphere at Grasshopper? Are all workers friendly, artists help each other develop and stuff? Do you know any other concept artists that worked on Killer is Dead or any other of their games?
Thanks in advance for answers :D
Once again: awesome works on the designs, gonna look up to your other works!
Tonyholmsten Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
well i don't know how it is now, but at the time yeah everyone was friendly.

Yeah, a guy called Nomaru Tadaki
he is super talented.. but he does not have a online portfolio unfortunately.. (like many other good japanese concept artists.. weirdly)

Jesus fuck, this is so ridiculous, and so amazing.

gehco Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Love the design :)
Almost makes me wonder why some wealthy n*tjob like Trump hasn't tried to build it yet.
- Maybe beyond his budget :D
Asafharari Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013  Student General Artist
perhaps if it could land on water it would be more useful :) but I love the concept 
coolbreeze88 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2013  Student Digital Artist
awesome but impractical. a heavier than air aircraft of that size would have a hard time finding a spot to land.  pardon my rudeness but im just really cynical when it comes to concepts such as these.
Azazalee Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Well, if you had a chance to see any footage of Killer is Dead (or any other Suda's game), then you'd know that "practical" is not a word to seek in this library :D

wow, this is so amazing!  i could live on there for a year and never get bored! 


man...imagine all the fule it would use!  it would probably consume around 50,000 gallons a week...unless it was nuclear powered that is.

Ratchet19Oo Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2013
This would have to have such a long runway to take off haha *And* land.
Great job nonetheless :)
plasticplayhouse Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
the only runway for this thing would be the ocean.  it's long enough and it would make for a softer landing than a traditional runway.
Azazalee Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Or it would use Moon's Dark Matter energy. :v

Someday our planes will be like this.

The bottom half is just for fuel? Heh. :) I like it a lot though. My question is that saucer section would really drag I would think....
