Paintchat Space Marine by r7ll Paintchat Space Marine by r7ll
This was done as part of a paintchat with my esteemed battle brothers


:iconmuju: and :icondeadxcross:

You can find the whole paintchat here: [link]


It was quite a humbling experience to be working on the same canvas as two such skilled artists.

My grasp of figure drawing and anatomy is inadequate at best, and so while the other two were drawing smokin' hawt duelling banshees and sisters of battle, I consigned myself to doodling power armour XD

The whole paintchat lasted something like 10 hours, though the others finished long before me. A good portion of this time was spent being confused at how to use OpenCanvas.

love it, the only problem I have with it are the ejected casings, why are they so tiny compared to the magazine and muzzle size?
this seems to be a problem with a lot of 40k art. bolts are supposed to be mini rockets.

Waaait a moment... that's an Ultramarine wearing one of those helmet-hood thingies the Dark Angels wear!

IT'S HERESY!

I don't like the GW bolt pistol designs, but this is a fantastic image; great modelling of the forms. :meow:

The pose is overused but the drawing itself is damn good, sir. I'm looking forward to your next piece of work, cheers!

For the Emperor.

And I wish I was half as good as you.
I'll just have to keep working.

An amazing piece of work there. Truly inspiring, so much so that my next 40k miniature project is going to be an entire Ultramarines force based off this art piece. thank you for your great work!

A brilliant piece of work. the armour and the pose of the marine dose not look odd or out of place. It really shows the true might of a space marine

The marking on the marine's chest armor let's you understand that his an Ultramarine, but honestly he could work as a Dark Angel as well :3, in my opinion.

Oh, awesome pic by the way :D!

Congrats on your new tablet! It takes a little while to get used to, but the results are very worthwhile. Persist, you'll get it eventually :)

and therein lies one of my lifetime challenges, to persist in something i do not immediately master in any degree :P
small steps... my plan is to start with writing my name and stuff :D haha.. or maybe i should just skip straight onto the cintiq where i can see as i draw :P haha

r7ll Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010
A Cintiq is an awfully expensive investment though!
btw, make sure you have the aspect ratio of the active area of the tablet match that of your monitor, otherwise your life will be very difficult indeed XD

Cool painting! I like the use of black and white and greytones. I should maybe try to draw on the computer too, but I am afraid I lacking patience to produce anything good with computer art.
