Vic Viper T-301R by BoggeyDan Vic Viper T-301R by BoggeyDan
Red version of as it appears in Gradius V.


Here's the iconic Vic Viper starfighter of the Gradius video game series, in its T-301 iteration. First seen on the cover of the Gradius III & IV compilation as well as CG sequences within it, the T-301 then makes its first full-blown appearance in Gradius V, and then in Gradius ReBirth.

The T-301 is easily distinguished from its BP-827Z predecessor (last seen in Gradius IV) by the sharp, angular design of its prow (which elaborately reconfigures when firing its high-powered laser), as well as the two oversized "photon torpedo" missiles it carries externally.

I like this design.

Heck, the pilot for the Vic Viper T-301 is Captain Ebara, in which I'm working on his character design fanart. As there are fanarts of Radiant Silvergun and Ikaruga pilot characters, why not one in Gradius V?

Gradius V, in overall, is like "Salamander + Radiant Silvergun", with explosive effects inspired by Ikaruga. Hell, the "multiple Vic Vipers" scene also resembles those in Salamander anime.

One thing I notice much about your artworks is that you draw machines so well! O_O

Secret to straight lines: either a ruler (when you're drawing on paper) or the pen tool (in Photoshop). :9

Not to mention the fact that so much of them were on the CG model from the game's intro! :faint:

In this color scheme, it certainly does look like another ship referred to as a "Viper."
