"Kroot Tracker"

Exteriorr illustration for Fantasy Flight Games' Rogue Trader Line.

More info on the book here:

[link]

A rogue Trader is using a Kroot Tracker to find her quarry.
Do you have any idea how difficult it was to know several months in advance that one of the new playable races would most likely be Kroot...and not be able/allowed to tell anyone???

Okay, it was somewhat fun though... ;)

This is supposed to be on the backside of the book, my contributors copy has not arrived yet so I'm not fully sure it ended up there, any confirmations are welcome.

cheers.

I really like this. Rogue Traders are my favourite WH40K characters by far, I'm so sad that they are not a part of the Imperial Guard which resorts me to using Chaos Marines. 'Cause y'know renegades, rogues and traitors are so much more fun than ten foot tall celibate monks! ;)

Wait... so you can be an ORK... but NOT an Eldar?

Say, quick question. I was planning on getting into the [page layout] graphics design business sometime in the distant future and wondered how you were commissioned/paid for this artwork.

I was commissioned through email. I had the luck to originally get contacted by Fantasy Flight with a query whether I was interested in doing work from them.
I got paid through paypal, as with most of my commissions.
I think that is about as clear and concise I can get on that at the moment.:)
Hope it helps!

Is she a part of the tau empire?
Reply
:icondavidsondered:
DavidSondered Featured By Owner May 21, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
No, she is a Rogue Trader that has hired a Kroot Mercenary. Kroot will associate themselves with anyone who pay the right price (as in, currency AND amount).

Glad you like :D

ohhh right I forgot the kroot were rogues aswell. What do you mean by the kroot as a playable race? The kroot have always been a part of the tau empire, why would GW further comlicate an already overcomplex game?

This was done for Fantasy Flight Games' RPG "Rogue Trader". It is not the same as Games Workshops tabletop miniatre game. Same liscence, held by GW, but two different kind of games.

Thank you. Kroot are difficult to paint. Their jaws dont make sense anatomically. But I love their look. I might do some Kroot just for my own sake one day...

Well you told me, but I have an advantage since I help out on Studio Images and follow under the Studio´s NDA. I can honestly say I did not share your exuberance about the playability of Kroot. But then again I am RPG heretic in our circles anyway.

Ber om ursäkt för att jag inte lämnade någon kommentar på den här, har haft lite att göra senaste tiden. Tha gradh agam ort charaid.

At first I noticed the Rogue trader, who I thought looked quite nice, then I noticed the Kroot, which simply looks awesome, and THEN I noticed the detailing on the bushes foliage at the picture's right corner, which simply looks stunning....

Great pic all in all.
