Big Five Part 5 by CrazyAsian1 Big Five Part 5 by CrazyAsian1
Panthera Pardus - Leopard

The role of the Leopard consists of stealth, light recon, and as a force multiplier. Leopards are very lightly armored consisting mostly of exposed artificial muscles and the canvas covering them. Their greatest asset is the active camouflage system. The spots on the Leopard are evenly spaced and staggered with one full spot and a ring. Through visually sampling its surroundings the rosettes adjust their color to match. The information is passed on to the next rosette over which blends with the others. Perfect invisibility still has yet to be achieved, but when working in the bush the Leopards ability to blend has proven to be incredibly useful. (See chroma sub-sampling, thermo-optic camo from GITS, and active camo from MGS4)

Hunting and tracking behavior is more or less the same as it's real life counterpart. In most cases Leopards are deployed as solitary units consisting of the Leopard and ranger to provide tactical support to the other animal squads in the area. Perching and ambushing from tree's is a popular tactic. Since it is lightly armored Leopard models can move quickly and quietly, able to maneuver and reposition with ease without giving away it's location. The paws are padded to help lower noise signature. Like the Lions, the claws and teeth are made of tungsten carbide and are retractable. The eye covers provide different viewing spectrum's and wide angle fields of vision. The daytime operations model has the tan/white covering while the night version resembles a Black Panther with deep blue/black coverings.


Wooo hooo! Done with the Big Five.... or am I. Will update you guys soon with more info.

Thanks so much for sticking around and watching my work progress. Your support has meant a lot to me. I've read all your comments and tried to respond to all of them. Your feedback has been invaluable and knowing that I'm doing something you guys can appreciate has helped push this series along. Stay tuned for updates about this project and where I, hopefully, can take it.

Thanks again

This art is soooo sick and original! I am in the stages of creating a sci-fi/horror video game and would love to borrow some of your concepts with your permission! I will give credit for your ideas!

I was wondering if I could use your concept w/ the Big Five, the animal drones, and the idea of wildlife rangers using the animal drones to takedown poachers and other criminals for a video game project that I'm designing- the project ISN'T an actual game in development... yet.

When I read the concept of the art, I thought it was a great idea for a video game and the cause that you are doing this for is just (I also believe that our wildlife needs all the protection it can get), but I wanted to get your permission first before really going w/ the idea. I don't want to be one of those guys, you know?

Really amazing work, and that gun has a GIANT magazine. I wouldn't like to be on the wrong side of either of those.

I LOVE IT!!!!!

The concepts are really amazing! Sadly, many of us Africans barely even care about the endangering of these species. Really hoping for a change with the introduction of these mecha into the wild! :D

This is incredible. I'm loving these mechanical animal concepts. What inspired you to create these pieces?
LupusNinja Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2013
Good god, look at the size of that magazine.

I really need to fix that.... hahaha

Those are some serious rounds, that gun is packing, if it needs that big a magazine! :lol:

do your creations have artificial intelligence, or are they simply machine operated?

either way, your creations are absolutely incredible.

Dude... 90 miles per hour AND invisibility? I'd be terrified!

I LOVE your Big Five series. I also love the Huntress illustration. I was wondering if you were going to do a wolf, unless the "big pooch" in Huntress was one.
II-Kibosh-II Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2013
Loving this series! I just have to ask, what is that person shooting from that gun?! That Mag is HUGE!!! haha
keenumman Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2013
Now that you have the Big 5. Will you do the Hippo and the Crocodile making it the Dangerous 7.
And not to be "That guy", but the leopard isn't part of the Big 5.
CrazyAsian1 Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Croc and Hippo would be fun! I'll consider it. I have some other ideas lined up right now but there's definitely room for more :) Thanks

and yes the Leopard is part of the 5
keenumman Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2013
Your right, was watching animal planet they had the Leopard and Crocodile as part of the seven, and the Hippo as part of the five. Sp they made the mistake.

magikdust Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This series is definitely one of the best I've seen in my meanderings around DA. I live in SA and its cool to see someone outside care about what's happening and showing their views and what not (also not in a mean way for a change). All in all great art. :)
CrazyAsian1 Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I'm really glad you like it. :D

Africa has such a rich tapestry of culture and history that I feel is more or less untapped at this point. The great diversity of cultures and the stories of the people could be the core of really great ideas that could be shared with the rest of the world! I need to go visit sometime in the future. I'd like to experience Africa for myself and see what it has to offer :)
magikdust Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
There's a hell of a lot on offer here. So many stories and old believes that a large chunk of of people have forgotten about. So many things to google so little time. Hope you get to see and hear first hand the awesomeness that is this continent.
Einsty Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Seeing that magazine is scary. Given the silencer, I am not sure exactly how big the round can be to remain subsonic and fill that monstrosity.
Snakeman2013 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2013   General Artist
Just got back from Africa, saw a 2 wild leopards, saw this, freaking great job man!
CrazyAsian1 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Nice!! haha I'm glad you like it. Which country did you go to? I'd like to plan a trip to either SA or Kenya.
Snakeman2013 Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2013   General Artist
Went to Tanzania in da Serengeti national park. The Two I saw were just cubs. Saw the other four that make up the five to
CrazyAsian1 Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Awesome. How long were you there?
Snakeman2013 Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2013   General Artist
like 4 weeks. Still recovering, but im starting to remember how to use a tablet.
CrazyAsian1 Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Wow! That sounds amazing! I'm looking at planning a family trip to Africa next year so just asking anyone who's been to Africa about their trips. Any recommendations?
Snakeman2013 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2013   General Artist
If you go to Kenya, its best to go to The Masai Mara National Park to see all of the five, and the great migration(saw a little bit of that to). In South Africa, your best going to Kruger National Park to see the five(Best bet there to see the rhino. They got both blacks and whites)
