I like how he seems to be an image of perfection, even though he is an astartes. This is how I picture all Blood Angels, Sanguine Perfection but can rip out your spinal column with their bare hands.

I was really trying to go for the Raphaelite-angel look, not so concerned about the danger they put out, but more the beauty of the Blood Angels. I feel this is sometimes downplayed in the imagery of BA...

Thanks!

Out of curiosity, did GW give you a brief for your application, or was it just a case of "show us your portfolio and we'll see if we like it"?

First I sent in portfoliopieces, the few that went on to the second round then got two briefs and a deadline, the images I posted where the result of that.

Any chance you'd be allowed to share the text of the briefs with us?

Im actually not sure I am allowed to do that PO, so rather then getting smacked with legal stuff Ill just leave it for now. Sorry dude,
Though I think you can get what it was about to depict by just looking at the images ;)

Sorry my computer was being dumb. I was just going to tell you how talented you are. I would like to learn how to paint like you in the future.

Thak you. I must say that mostly it comes down to practice. I do not believe in Talent. I dont think I had any more talent than anyone else.

I would check out a couple of things (google it) for learning more about painting in general, and digital in particular.



Conceptart.org. They got forums and you can buy downloadable training-vids from them. Up until August 1st the vids are only 7USD a piece, and some of those normally go for 50USD.

FengZhu designschool has a youtube-channel. Absolutely free, absolutely perfect for learning about painting digitally.

Muddy colours (blog) made by some of the most influential artists today, has alot to offer.

Artorder. Made by Wizzards of the Coasts Artdirector John Schilderette (might have spelled that name wrong) and also has alot to offer, both business-wise but also for learning hoq to paint.


Hope it helps you out :)

Wow , you are amazing, this will stick in my messages for awhile :)

And yes I agree, practicing is 99% of it. Its the focusing part that gets me, haha. Agian thank you so much. I feel like I should give you something with such great information.

No sweat you know.

If you feel like you want to give something:
Spread the word of my availability (commercial is good!), practice alot and get very good yourself. Thats all you need to do.
