Oh Geez...This is one of the best single marine pictures i think i've ever seen. everything is perfect, from the scaling of the powerfist, to the chainsword handle and unique bolt pistol. Well done sir! You've made me wanna make this marine for real...^_^
It's awesome man, I love 40k and this is just fantastic. The shaping of his greaves for example reduces the traditionally blocky look of the marines and enhances the whole look so much, and is present in other places too. The only, ONLY niggle is that of the stretched skin and severed heads, which along with his scorched face is very Chaos-ey, and the rest of his gear doesen't look very chaos like.
Thanks for all you great comments! - yeah some of the details tend to lean towords Chaos but I just decided to include them because my friend (whom I did the piece for) thought they were cool - plus it gives the character a more menacing and unmerciful look!
thanks! no hese just a space marine general and the bolter looks light because when i complete the final piece im going to have a flash from the barrel so most of the details would be washed out in the flash. Thanks for the constructive critique... they are very rare on deviant art!
