A short, looping sequence I wrote to serve as a ringtone. Sorry these are so loud, I amplified them both to serve the tiny speaker on my phone well enough.
The Light Reconnaissance Craft, Model 5, nicknamed “Ronin” , is a turbine-driven craft suited for rapid transit at hovering and low altitudes.
An open, accessible seating position permits fast and effective dispatch with minimal initial preparations. The tail is inverted to provide a reduced form-factor, permitting travel through the narrowest of passages in the most extreme situations. In rare cases, they have been fitted with light weapons and put to combat as a desperate measure.
The high risk posed to the pilot, as well as the difficulties involved in landing have seen it to be implemented in very limited numbers. Gaining popularity with ex-pilots, the craft has become widely known as a sporting vehicle and, for those who dare, a craft suited for certain paramilitary operations.
I may revisit this design later.

Commissioned by a friend who wanted a banner for their Twitch page. I reproduced this iconography entirely by hand and careful measurement. It has provided me with many new insights into working in low-resolution, and I am very pleased with this work.
I also do stylized avatars, and can work with sprite sheets. I will post examples of everything in the days to come.
