Again, great sense of weight and volume, and nice pose. I personally like my marines a bit more hulking, but that doesn't taking the slightest bit of quality to this.

Isn't this in the Dark Heresy rulebook for Space Marines?

Not the official one no, but it is the cover for a fan made set of rules.

Heavy Bolter Rules!! I love them, I was thinking of making a Devastator squadron with pure heavy bolters, lots of dakka. But realised that it would be buggered against armour, soloution: 3 Devastator Squads, each armed with two heavy Bolters and two missile launchers. Combined fire from all of these terminates pretty much anything, and as you may have guessed yes I am a Marine Infantry kinda player

this has inspired me to go buy some w40k graphic novels, study the forms and get drawing space marines.

Aha, more 40k pencil work. Personally I find pencil is the best way to convey a 40k scene or character, because it suits the whole atmosphere. Keep it up!

Yes, I agree. I like pencil work a lot. Usually I find sketches or pencil work better compared to complete paintings.

yeah, i know. sometimes, when i try to draw an action figure, i have to redo it several times not because the pose is wrong, but there is something weird about the pose. and then, i end up redrawing it..... did you copy this from a tabletop model? it still looks cool anyway

:iconrobban-o:
Robban-O Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2008
Nope, Just took a default post I have used before and then slaped on armour, which looked a little weird.

Well, hardcore 40K fans are persistant that women can't be turned in to marines but as you they are wrong. It is a true drawing made from real life. ;)

the drawing and the shading eveything is perfect dude but don't u think that hips a bit go like girlish u know i mean the stance

Robban-O Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2008
It has been said that it looks like he is in dire need of a toilet. Ths stance has been used before but I think that in this particular composition it might not have been the best of chooses.

Or he might just be transsexual.

Hehe, na, but it is a very nice drawing, ;) I really like the amount of detail and value spent on it. Besides that I have alittle bit of issues drawing space marines for the most part. :(

I had problems with the helmet myself. It took a while and I had to take one of my miniatures and look at it before I got it the way I wanted. The first tries looked like a bucket.

Riktigt grym asså! Det märks att du har fått bättre koll på skuggningen. Men posen verkar lite konstig, som om han var kissnödig eller nåt.. jag vet inte riktigt. Snygg i alla fall!

:iconrobban-o:
Robban-O Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2008
Vad då kissnödig?! ;)

Ärligt talat så tror jag att det intrycket förstärktes av rustningen för från början såg det helt normalt ut. Det är en pose som jag använt ofta förut. Jag började med att monokromskugga, som de gör i serie orginal, men valde sedan att mjuka upp det hela. Resultatet blev iaf bättre än den förra.
