Will you do a big party for all the worldwide community for the clash of WoT ?

 

That move to create a russian copy of the Skorpion R and try to get as much money as Skorpion earned you...

And I'm sure it's working well.

It's a really nice wallpaper but artistically speaking the dude who did the post-processing should have toned down the blue highlight on the barrels (especially the Skorpion one) and added a yellow/orange highlight simulating the light from the huge rain of sparks.

Also, the lighting on the trees in the background (long shadows from bottom left to top right) suggest the sun is behind the camera on the left yet the sun in the image itself is on the right.

The massive blue fill from the side suggests it's coming from the left behind the vehicles.

 

The lighting is all over the place which detracts from an otherwise very nice image.

I'm afraid I actually prefer the Winter Challenge marathon background picture. After some searching on the net I found it on Andrey Serov's profile on Artstation, and made it my desktop wall paper, but I'm surprised that WG hasn't made that or his Caernarvon AX piece an official download in the various sizes.

Everyone has their own preference for artwork, especially during the festive holiday periods when the personal preferences really come out... if you've ever tried to decorate a tree with someone else, you'll know! :popcorn:

Is it really so the overpowered battle ruining annoyance that you see in almost every battle, Skorpion G, has been with us for years. And now there are two of them. Wonder if I will ever come back to game.

We got used to the Skorp have we not, what's the big deal? People complain all the time.. There are more pressing matters that should be addressed.

You are 100% right, I thought exactly the same lol. That's not a matter of personal taste.

It is always personal tastes with artwork, some people don't see the flaws, just the shine!

The SU 130 existed in real model the Skorpion G is just fantasy,so is not a copy atol but also is way better TD in the game...i dont understand why some people complain when they have opportunity to get a tank for free!! what crazyness is this?

Fair enough, anything can be art. I guess art is like what they say about beauty “it’s in the eyes of the beholder”. I do like the setting though, grinding of the tracks especially!

What absurdities are you saying about my complain?!!
I'm happy for the people that can make the challenge. Then lets be honest as all challenge it's calculated (need a lot of time to make it threw) to have very few for free, and mostly paying even i it's 90% less...

The Skorpion G is the most played tank in the game, it means that WG gained a load of money with it.

Putting a copy (I don't care about real tanks... it cames after the skorpion with nearly same stats so in WOT it's a copy) of the Skorpion G and beeing russian is just a move to make as much money as Skorpion G made.

Both of these tank don't have to be in game, or at least not with these stats!

 

And I own the Skorpion G and I like it a lot, but just because it's easy to play and gain money with... All my other premium are dusty in the garage because of it...

Yeah it's because I do Photorealistic 3D work/Post-Processing for a living. The WoT forum might not be the best location to give detailed feedback on images like this but you never know, it might help the artist who made it out in the long run.

It's always appreciated and welcome! I know how the feedback can help artists in public forums.
