Well, this one is the second in the series of my Warhammer 40k pictures! As all my previous attempts with Space Mairnes have failed, I decided to stick right to the reference! A screenshot of Dawn of War 2 helped me out here. The actual title was "fallen Comrade" as an Imperial frigate has crashlanded in the background, though the focus shifted towards the marines, so I had to change it. I am not totally happy with the outcame and my pc neither (the 900mb file takes quite a bit to handle
). The next one in the series is already made and turned out better... that may be because it uses some other techniques, but this was fun to do anyway! but especially the flames were a challenge, using neither reference nor textures nor brushes for them!
And I was pretty worried about the head, as of the lates Codex, Salamanders have black skin and red eyes, but it actually has... potential! I may even make a portrait of one sometime
I should stop talking so much^^
The story goes on here:
Hope you like it!
