Mano's Test by DavidSondered Mano's Test by DavidSondered
When introduced to the Veteran Company, the Lantern Marines are dropped to the surface of a Forge world lost to Tyranids. Though the world was purged of the swarms, there are still elements there to keep them from completely retake it.
The Marine are to find one or more relics, find a way off the world and return to his brethren.
This test is essential for induction into the veteran company.

Mano, during his test, is finding he has to use his Lantern to rid himself of an enemy...

Awesome job on this! If I had any complaints it would be that the lictor's "Scythes" look very small. On the figure they have very long top arms and beyond the last joints are curved carapace with spines pointing out of them as if to capture their prey by pulling them in with spines gouging and helping them to grip a struggling victim. These look no longer than it's arms and have a knife like edge.

sorry for the incoming serious criticism.
the blue light is kinda weird in this one. not really sure whats going on here. the chains are giving off the blue glow? or is from the BG.
also the pose of the mid flight marine is too static.
Reply
:icondavidsondered:
DavidSondered Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Not at all, the colours are a bit confusing, the chain has a glow from the power of the lantern (the thing that is hitting the Lictor in the head) being a powerweapon. At the same time, there is a glow from outside that is blueish.

You are the first to claim the pose too static, most people think he is either just taking off (like I planened) or that he is skipping...which is a little TOO much action..
I will take it into my thoughts for improving my skills.

thevampiredio Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
ah i see. yeah the outdoor blue glow and the power weapon glow are clashing.
also the lictor's head and body should have jolted to the side to show force of impact.
sorry im being an asshole again...^^;

DavidSondered Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
You're not an asshole, the body and head AS jolted to the side, the Lictor is falling and has put his hand on the rail to keep from falling further.

indeed, I think you have gotten one of my inspirations, though I couldn't use the whip but rather it's a power weapon at the end of a chain.

He's not running, he lift his leg because the thrust of the jumppack is pushing him up and away..

Is it just me, or does he sort of look like he's skipping? I think you should tweak his leading foot so the toe is pointing upwards.

:icondavidsondered:
DavidSondered Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Was decided against for the general sensation of moving upwards. With the foot pointing more downwards the bend fof the knee indicate him moving his leg upwards, which flows well with the thrusters being just lit to give him a forward-upward move that will emphasize his swing.


Or as a character in my childrens new game, skylanders, sais:
DOUBLE-BOOM!

Using the Lantern is a last resort for the lantern marines, so I think the Lictor has fended good fir itself before this.
Nevertheless- bitchslap it is!
