    Now I'm liking this more, we are finally getting to some serious sci-fi weaponry, Pulsed Energy Projectile rifles....

    They're designed as non/less-than-lethal weapons, although they can probably be used in a lethal way, too.
    Such a weapon is still too big to be anything but vehicle-mounted, of course. The power source will always be a problem.

    The current future of weapon design, in my opinion is anyway with magnetic/electric weapons. Like the rail gun. As far as I know they are working right now a prototype for ships and maybe even tanks.
    I mean gun powder designs, pretty much reached the absolute limit of their potential. There is only so much you can do with it. And not really surprising after more then 200-300 years of evolution here. Of course, it still has to be seen if it really can replace all existing designs. But I would think that it is more realistic then plasma weapons.
    Lasers might have their use too! If you can solve the issue with energy. But the same can be said about rail guns and other magnetic weapons as well.
    I am sure Hass can sheed some more light on this.

    A scientist ;)
    *No really, it's just meant for funn. I am not saying scientist are idiots. But it is often enough not THAT far from the truth. The difference between the designers and the engineers. And you would love to bash both of them sometimes.
    Kinda like how the designer always falls for Apple cuz it luuks pretty! While the tech guy ask you over and over again, why do I need to pay you 800$+ for this web page again, that I could do all by my self in one afternoon?

    Spiderkid, spiderkid, he can do all that Spider thing.
    His balls haven't drop, and he sounds like a little bitch.
    He stole a Shield, then he swung and got a bunch of asses into seats.
    Look Out here comes the Spider KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIID!

    anyone already saw the new Trailer?

    Yeah. Dunno if I like the Spidey's-Eyes-Narrowing thing. It worked in the old animated show and old comics, but his mask having so much high-tech that it can do that is kinda out of character for his broke ass.

    Well Spiderkid seems to be on Stark's side so he could get the tech from him, I mean, didn't he get a Spider armor in the Civil War event?

    I guess that's true...
    Although he did make his own metal armour before.
    Fun thing is that there also was an actual character known as Spiderkid, who was also known as Steel Spider later.

    Yeah, I bet Iron Man tricked his shit out. Better for them to do that than go with this - at least initially:
    iron_spider_man___simon_gough_colors_by_spiderguile-d791wlu.jpg

    It looks much better than I thought it would. It will be a good change of pace to see an actual teenager play Spidey.

    Man those muscles, I would feel silly trying to draw muscles like that... :D
    I've seen LOTS worse, obviously, I'm mostly refering to that super-smooth chrome effect on the suit, that emphasizes them muscles but still :V

    He doesn't skimp on leg day.

    I like when they show a certain sense of understanding anatomy though, such as his foreground arm, the triceps is contracted upwards, because the arm is stretched out. This is correct. A lot of artists don't give two shits about such details

    speaking of drawing, whenever I am trying to blow away hair or dust from my paper, I'll accidentally spit a little droplet... goddamnit... every time!

    Read about the injuries folks have had earlier in this thread in early february, hope you guys, zegh, Hassknecht, etc. are getting better. Sad to read about Atomkilla's friend who lost his leg, cancer is a really s**tty thing. I've been lucky in that I haven't broken any bones falling down, did fall and break my bicycle last winter. Now I have a winter tire on the front in it so it's safer to drive around. The roads are very icy with grooves right now, really need the extra traction.

    Been thinking about getting a bicycle helmet, they are like semi-mandatory here.

    I'm having surgery mid april, shouldn't be much trouble.
    My colleague had it worse, he fell down the stairs at home, landed right on his knee and broke his kneecap. That's going to take a while.

    Kneecap is like sort of soft, or softer then normal bone. I hit my kneecap on a weight lifting bar I was lifting once and it made a dent in my right kneecap. Good thing it didn't smash the kneecap or break off a piece. Just the thought of breaking it...auch.

    Yeah, it's not pleasant. Fun thing is he drove to work, and only around noon when he sat for a while it suddenly went really bad. I drove him to the orthopedist, x-ray says his kneecap is like 3/4 split.
    *shudder*
