Deadly Ground by OEVRLORD Deadly Ground by OEVRLORD
FULL VIEW!

This picture is what I have been working on on pretty much non-stop for the last five days. I promised myself I would get it done today, and I just managed to.

Basically, I got the idea from :iconcrazy-jay555: when I explained that I couldn't think of anything to draw, so kudos to him.

Well obviously, it's a Sorcerer of the Thousand Sons legion, about to make Sushi out of a Dark Angel assault marine. Or it's a Dark Angel assault marine trying not to be made into Sushi by a Chaos sorcerer. Your pick.

This picture is some 2476x3484 pixels in size, at 300 DPI. Yes, I coloured in the whole thing, bit by bit. No, I didn't scale anything. So obey me when I say: FULL VIEW! You can't even make out a lot of the details unless you're zoomed in fully.


***

A krillions-billions hours (more than my 'Renegade').
I used a HB mechanical pencil to draw the picture, and then I started colouring it in GIMP. I switched to using Corel Painter 11 part of the way in.

***

tl;dr

It's a picture and it took a long time. Oh, and again, I only used a mouse for the colouring.

Comment on it, or I'll follow you home and asphyxiate your family with chemicals.

I think this piece is absolutely fantastic, it's one of those eternal moments, an ancient sorcerer, considering himself betrayed by the emperor he once loved second only to his primarch caught in an eternal moment before he delivers one of countless killing blows against his believed betrayers, yet at the same moment there is that glimmer of hope for the loyal servant, if he can raise his arm a fraction of a second faster, pushing his more advanced armor to its absolute limit he may block the killing blow and finally deliver the emperor justice against the hated traitor.

In the end the tragic truth lies under it all, both were betrayed and both served loyally at the same time, an ancient conspirator turning brother against brother in an epic deception with roots in the universes founding, an epic deception that though claiming both these eternal warriors in a battle where, in a way they are both righteous and justified, only the willpower of one man greater than either has held back the conclusion of the titanic conspiracy, one which the outcome of this very battle will move an inch closer or further from fruition.

You captured an epic moment and by virtue of the potency of both these characters, themselves rendered symbols of greater ideals behind their masks, you have created something truly poinient if regarded in a certain way

All is dust...
And we forgot our sweet home, Prospero, and came to limitless sorrow and bitter hatred for our once beloved brothers... And they should die, and we reap thir souls for our Legion's glory and future!

could you paint a Thousand Sons' Marine, but pre-Heresy era?
I mostly like those times, when they were loyal to Imperium and Emperor...

The right arm of the Marine does look a tad small and is only more evident when compared the sorcerer's hand...but other than that, they're great proportions and great coloring as well

Looks amazing!

I just have a nitpick on this otherwise amazing piece.

The left arm of the Dark Angel looks too short and also looks like its been broken downwards. Just looks awkward.

I know it looks a little short, but he's meant to appear as though he's raising his elbow to guard or something. Thank you for the comment.

:iconhoresuto:
horesuto Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2010
I got that bit, yeah. Its a good concept, but the arm is completely vertical to the elbow, which is near horizontal.

If you want it to look more like he's actually using his elbow, you could raise the arm 90 degrees to the right. Just a suggestion for an otherwise brilliant piece.

Also, sorry for double posting.

man, well done! this one is really quite good, the sorcerer in particular. The only beg that i can see is the helm of the Dark Angel, but even then, its not too bad. I always love the way you draw power fists, and this is no exception, bravo!
