I love the concept of an Orbital sniper.  Must have some massive rounds in that little piece, and the lag time would be a killer, but you're pretty well hidden.  How large would his platform be?  You'd need enough mass to make him stable (recoil) but small enough to not be a sitting duck himself once someone detects him.

Now THAT is a kickass concept. Made a kill from a mile away? That's cool. Try 35 miles up. I also really dig the mixture of tactical gear on a space suit, and the yellow/black helmet and gloves are really set off by the while and gray suit. Nice color combo!

There's people who give you the evil eye, and then there's snipers.

BIG difference.

Its a nice concept but I think if should of been a bigger image, like showing more of the world. 

The guy is big and bulky so I doubt we will miss anything if you "zoom" out. Good idea for a game.

This is card art so it most likely had to meet a certain spec pertaining to how focused it is on the character. Things like this usually go through multiple renditions before the client/art director will take it and they probably didn't want to showcase the surroundings as much. Because the character has such a neutral body color he'd probably blend in too much with the machine and background if it zoomed out which would make sense in the context of the shooter but would be bad for showcasing the design.

So someone posted this on a forum and I wrote this piece for it:

 

"That guy is a Strategic Platform Operator/Overwatch Kill Mission unit, otherwise known as a SPOOKM. Due to the ridiculous policies of mid-21st century disarmament treaties, there is a UN-enforced ban on all teleoperated automated orbit-to-ground weapons, but small arms orbit-to-ground weapons are permitted, because they ensure accountability. Thus, the Spook'em is a gunner waiting in constant EVA on a sub-orbital ELINT/K platform for any kill order that might come, and then uses his STG MIKR rail rifle to put a big hole into whatever little hideout the terrorists have crawled out of. They are also called upon to neutralize low-flying enemy drones or overhead satellites and suborbital insertion pods, as well as general sub-orbital support over hot zones.

Spook'ems operate their platforms in groups of three and have 8-hour EVA shifts. They are trained in long-range marksmanship, low-orbit and EVA operations and close-quarters combat, for the surprisingly likely event that their platform might come under assault by a close-flying enemy stratellite or GTO kill-drone. Their tours only last for a few of years (during which they are constantly on-station), after which time most of them retire to a fat pension fund and however many years they have left before the cancer takes them."
