Space, invading it, and how to sprite really simple camouflage. This is a heavy landing craft intended to land troops and equipment on the moon. (Or any other low-gravity planetoid.) Not much else to say about it.

I made it out of the sprites of Robotnik's Death Egg, and bits and pieces of some starships from Front Mission.

The Camo Pattern was made by creating some jagged shapes with paint, pasting them over a duplicate of the sprite with a different palette, then removing the jagged shapes leaving just the workspace background in place. Then I just pasted it over the original. This is a really useful technique for camouflage on any kind of sprite, really, I use it for tanks and infantry. (Although I have different types of shapes that I use for each.)

I get a kick out of this every time I see it. It reminds me of the dropships from Mechwarrior/Battletech.

@SoldierSpriter342:

They really were inspired partially by that, but more inspired by a mod I was messing with in Kerbal Space Program, in conjunction with a book I was reading. Really got me thinking about decent ways to invade the moon.
