Space Marine Sergeant by MikeCoombsArt Space Marine Sergeant by MikeCoombsArt
FINALLY finished this! Yaaay (:

You can find a higher resolution close up showing more detail here : [link]

Definately my most succesful digital work to date, really proud of this one.

''Once more into the fray!" Shouted the ultramarine sergeant.

Hope you warhammer fans like it :D

This painting seemed like it took forever and i really tried to focus hard on my values, i learnt a ton of stuff and really enjoyed myself especially once i got passed the 'yucky' stage. Its a real consolidation of alot of practice of technique and theory that i have been trying to improve upon endlessly.

:::UPDATE:::

Was playing around with some textures and colour blending modes with some work i was doing and tested it on this, really liked the results and thought it looked pretty cool. What do you think? Do you prefer the monotone version?

Yeah i find that alot of the time with space marine armour its like, 'Sweet that looks so badass' and other designs are like, 'Oh god that looks horrible'. It's unbelievably hard to get space marine armour to look right proportionally, this is definately my best attempt so far.

I agree with you. They're a special lot, both in appearance and lore.

Fan-freaking-tastic work! :clap:

I love the battlefield detail and the work on the Sergent's armor. Good proportions and shading.
