Viper/Apex Missile Comparison by Jon-Michael-May
Viper/Apex Missile Comparison
Both the UN and the Alliance make use of long range multiple independently targetable warhead launch vehicles as their primary anti-ship weapons. These are basically Submarine launched ICBM's...but in space. ;)

As tends to be the case in most comparisons, the Alliance Apex Missile is far more advanced than it's UN counterpart. It has longer range, more operational variants, and more powerful x-ray laser warheads, but at the cost of total warhead carrying capability.
To those that just started following me, as well as everyone else, sorry but it may be some time before I post anything new. School has just started back I don't have much time for drawing beyond school work...I am taking a drawing class though so I may post some of that.

Might tweak it a bit later on to clean it up some, but the general design is set.

UNSC Direwolf Class Escort
I had a full color drawing of a UNSC ship in my gallery some time ago, but it got flagged because instead of talking to me and asking for proof that I had actually drawn it and not merely photoshopped someone else's work into a new design, they decided to report it as a copyright infringement. Whatever.

So here's the line drawing with no color, proving that I drew it. Granted, this isn't the same exact design as the one that was flagged, but it's close. I went back and made a few changes.

The bottom line: I'm not an art thief. I drew this. It is based on the Halo frigate, but if you take the time to look at drawings of the frigate and my design, you can easily notice numerous differences. The shape may be similar, but the details are different.

Facebook: (I'll be changing the Method of Life page, to a general Author Fanpage soon, so that it's not just about the one book, but about everything I'm working on.)

I've published my first novel, Method of Life. Buy it, read it, review it:

The Synopsis:
In The Future:
There was no great war of nations, no thundering voice from the sky unleashing a rapture of judgment on the kneeling masses, and no great extinction level event of cataclysmic proportions. The Fall of Man came incrementally over half a century, in the form of economic and social decay, spiraling civilization into collapse without so much as a whimper.

At least that's the story people believed.

Many had tried throughout human history to control the world. Dictators had conquered half the globe and free men had seen their efforts squandered by the selfish masses. Never had either side done as much to unite humanity in common cause, as Jacob Morrison. Where they had failed, he succeeded, binding humanity in a single effort to halt his reign of destruction across the world.

Together, they repaid his treason with blindfolded gunfire. And after a time, all that remained of his legacy was a son that had never known his father and the broken world left to rebuild.

The Method of Life:
Caleb Johansen has spent his life hidden away from those who might wish to see him answer for his fathers crimes against the world. In an effort to to blame anyone for their poor lot in life, the past has finally caught up with him in the town of Rosa. A resettlement camp abandoned by the government and turned self sufficient community, Rosa is an island amid the wasteland that stretches out between the privately owned Districts, where a lucky few live lives of luxury.

As his ailing guardian prepares him for the next step in his life, Caleb must entrust his future to soldiers of fortune hired to ensure his protection. Harmon McCullough is such a man, though not without a conscience and the understanding of the larger stakes in play and the risks involved for the band of brothers standing with him and friends on the wrong side of his mission.

Creasy is one such friend, and must contend with the one obstacle Harmon presents, a currency not in great supply. Dispatched from the District New Haven to take Caleb into custody by any means necessary, Harmon and Creasy will meet for the last time in Rosa, both with the realization that nothing can stand in the way of completing their missions.

Caught in the middle of their everyday lives, Alaster and Veda Nelthrope must contend with being swept into the whirlwind of danger sweeping through Rosa. With problems of their own, their lives may never be the same as the interaction with events unfolding around them force resolutions from aspects of their lives they both had been afraid to face.

One night will change their lives forever and by the time the sun rises, their worlds will never be the same.
I've been working on what I call The New Haven Chronicles, (my near future military sci-fi universe/series) for the better part of seven years.  It's time for a break.  With any luck, I'm going to be going back to school in the fall, so that seems like a good time to step away from New Haven for a bit and for a lack of a better term, recharge.  I've been so devoted to one project or another for so long, that I haven't really lived.  Everything else has been on hold or taken a back seat to art.  So for at least a little while, there will a noticeable drop starting this fall. 

I have a few things coming before then and I'll certainly check in from time to time, so it won't be completely dead here.
