Really rough, but tell me what you think.

I like it. Even in its rough draft form.

So, he's going to go up against a Falcon all by himself?

Well, he has got a power fist...
Looks good, if he's a space wolf that looks like just the sort of thing they'd do in the heat of battle.

Its well worth continueing. Obviously there's some work needed on the proportions and perspective but I like the angle its from.

Very Gung-ho too!

He most certainly is missing his left hand :)

Thanks guys, I think I might actually give it whirl *gasp*

I almost never finish works like this, hence me asking your opinions. Thanks for posting :)

Are you aiming for a particular Chapter? If so, as was suggested by some posters, you could emphasize him being a Space Wolf, by heraldry par example, simply because they are renowned for their recklessness in combat. This, or the overly-zealous Black Templars, and then you'll train both your ability to make black armour with graphite, and your robe-drawing skills.

I prefer it being a Puppy, though.

I love it, finish it, and please give him a left hand, otherwise him versus the flacon won't be fair :p.

Might be a chaos marine...:eek:

I think I want the falcon a LOT closer, taking up most of the background area...

Ill work on it this weekend, maybe. No rest for the wicked.

Thanks for the comments, guys.

This is all digital, bro...no graphite :) I will probably use paint tools to finish it, give it a classical painting look...still debating on that.

Edit: Here is some more work I did in half an hour between classes...bored.

Falcon closer:

Absolutey do this. It is a great concept.

Now, I'd just like to know what's going thru the mind of the space marine and whether the guardian has wet himself yet. :p :D

I think when I finally render it, the guardian, along with the ones lying around the marine's feet, are going to be VERY dead.

Thanks!
