View Full Version : Eldar \ Chaos Fan art

18-03-2011, 13:28
A piece of fan art I just finished, originally meant for as a portfolio piece but then I figured why not put it on a fansite? I've been inspired by the art of Warhammer \ 40K for years, but this is the first time I've tried to create anything set in those universes.

I hope you guys like it.

Awesome and fairly gritty. Nice homage to 40k style. Is it traditional art or done on computer?

Looks good! I also think the black and white might look snazzy...

That is fantastic mate, im gonna say no to the black and white idea. Its incredibly detailed and i think the colour plays into that
Its almost monochromatic already but in an alternate pallete which compliments the style.

I actually cant get over how polished it is, i kept zooming in excepting for it to get pixelating and blurry and it just didn't happen.

Keep the work coming mate, awesome.

Nice, what did you use to do it?

Thanks, guys!

I painted it in Photoshop; as for black and white, I did consider it, but I'm really looking to create mostly colour works for now.

Looks rather nice. The lines flow prettily and draw your eye into the picture. The format and the theme makes it look like a Codex cover.

It wouldn't work in monochrome. It's got too many fiddly details. And it would look less pink, which is always a bad thing.

Hi I like the subject and the composition.
I think it might help to make it Black and white and then see if you can try and pop the key areas out a bit more. Ididn't see the guy getting eaten at first.
Just a suggestion :)

I've just made a few small revisions to this piece, so I figured I'd post the new version here.

I really like it, and I particularly like the contrast of the bone colour of the Howling Banshee armour against all the pink of the daemons.

I'm not sure whether you needed to change the daemon on the left. While the revised colour fits more with the overall theme, I did think that the contrast of colour was quite effective, given how much of the rest of the picture is dominated by different shades of pink. Both options work though, in my view, so it's whichever you prefer.

Many of the novels reference blood/ichor sizzling off of power weapons.

Great piece. I immediately thought of the story (WD 127?) where the Keeper of Secrets eats the Banshee's soul stone.

Really nice stuff. I'm not an arty person, but it looks cool to me :)

Just playing spot the difference between the two pictures at the moment :D

wow... that is awesome.

is that a daemon of slannesh attacking the banshee?

Wow, amazing work that's of a quality that could easily get it in a GW publication IMO.

That is incredible and one of the best pieces of fan-art that I've seen, if not the best. In fact, it's better than most official GW art.
