View Full Version : WH40k Pictures

Matter Of Fact

Here are some recent WH40k pics of me. I tried different styles of pencilling on the Dark Angel and Orc Nob and inked them afterwards. The Inquisition pic is a pencil sketch. I also tried to colour them in Photoshop like some others here, but the results looked too cartoonish. Maybe I just can't handle with the colours or my technique is just bad :D, tried to colour some Comic Strips of mine earlier and used a How to colour Comics manual but it just looks like the American mainstream Superhero comic :( and that style doesnt fit in the WH40k-Universe in my opinion.

Alright, here they are, enjoy!
The Orc Nob (his shadow is cast in the wrong direction I know I know :P)

Some good looking work their MatterofFact.

You've got an interesting method, I like the way you've rendered them.

Hehe, that second one is pretty funny, the way the statue's hand is drawn and positioned.

Nice stuff, but no particular style I could nail down. I don't know if thats a good thing or a bad thing, but the pictures are certaintly nice. Although critism will cause more improvment than praise: I don't think I like the marine. Something about the shoulderpad placement, the lack of heraldry/identification on them; the weird way the armor conformes to the curves of his forearms; the lack of that little circle thing on the belt buckle (I know thats a weird tiny detail, but its like that poe story with the birthmar: Its the only thing I can focus on for some reason). Oh, and he doesn't have a backpack, I don't know if this was intentional or not, but marines always look weird to me without them (which is why I don't like scouts). /critism

I like the way you do folds in cloth too BTW.

Love the work. I especially like the cross hatching shading done on the first drawing.

Thanks for all the compliments! Actually these pictures are far from
perfect... I am still learning human anatomy, muscles, proportions and facial expressions. I certainly hope I am on the right way, although I still use this American comic style and just can't get rid of it. It will take more time and experience to personalyze my own style of painting and drawing.

@Izram: Thanks Izram for the critism it helps a lot. I drew the marine on imagination that's propably why there are so many mistakes. I'll cerainly go on drawing marines from GW models.
