Was he also involved in the DY-100 line?

Stunning image!
Though that looks suspiciously like the "Botany Bay" from Star Trek in the upper right corner.

Dr. Heinrich von Kruger. I love using his Hellfire tanks and Hellstorms.

This guy reminds me of the Alpha Protocol guy that is encharged with Blowing up the base if it gets compromised...

Reminds me of Wernher von Braun - He built rockets for the thrid Reich, then worked for the NASA. He was pathfinder for Apollo 11

That there are blurry and clear schematics in here makes me visualize him standing between two panes of display glass. I love that. :D I also love that you put reflections in his glasses. It makes this look far more real and like we're getting a snapshot of somewhere that exists.

Are the schematics based off real ones or did you come up with them yourself?

Most are of Rockets that exist, V2 rockets and so on. One of the blue prints is Boba Fetts backpack rocket.

Nice work on the character design. Makes me think of a new cold war and this guy having a history of war in his blood. Is he prepared for the consequences his knowledge and engineering will bring to the new world?

And I think it's gonna be a long, long time
'till touchdown brings me back again to find
I'm not the man I thought I was before
Oh no, no no.
I'm a rocket man.
Now I hope this song is stuck in your head too.

The amount of detail is stunning. I can't help but imagine that the scientist pictured is seeing all these schematics in his head, and that we're just seeing a visual representation of how his mind sees things like this.
Fantastic work, SharpWriter!

First think that popped into my head:

:sing: "Once the rockets are up, who cares where they come down
That's not my department," says Wernher von Braun :music:

Have you heard that song? It's by Tom Lehrer. titled: Wernher von Braun, after the German rocket scientist.
