Deathwatch - Space Wolf - Commission by dForrest Deathwatch - Space Wolf - Commission by dForrest
I feel so dirty.

I'll need to draw 100 Dark Angels as penance for this one. But :iconhexatonic: asked me to draw an assault Space Puppy seconded the Ordo Xenos Chamber Militant...

The raw scan is here =>

For Russ and the Allfather! a most delightful piece on a space wolf. and you make the armour and him seem somewhat.....agh! whats the word im looking for?...blah! anywho you don't make him look like his drowning in the armour or the armour is choking him. it looks..organic, ergonomic, a perfect fit one would say.

Wow! Thanks. Supposedly Space Marine Armour is able to do what an olympic athlete can do... so I don't like really clumsy looking armour.

Hiooo. Torin's player reporting in here!

I have to say, the artwork here is absolutely outstanding. The amount of detail you worked into the picture is jaw-dropping. The Space Wolves pauldron, the Shadowclaw, the Seawolf totem (I can't tell you how pleased I was to see that included), all of them look gorgeous. I like the details you added, like the teeth hanging off the chainsword, the oath papers and the hazard sign on the jump pack. You even got his fangs in the picture without making them comically oversized. The impact scarring is a little out of character (Torin is very fastidious when it comes to his equipment) but that's okay. Can't run maintenance every night. =)

My thanks and my absolute highest compliments on your artwork. Your talent is unquestionable and the results are fantastic.

And much love to a Dark Angels brother! Seriously. You guys kick ass.

Glad to hear you like it so much! I liked the final so much I printed out a poster size of it for my cubicle at work.

The color and half tone shading on this piece really sell it for me, a unique visual perspective on a classic universe.

Thanks! I've only recently started playing around with half-toning. The color thing is really more of my avoidance of doing actual color. I go mono/duo chrome because frankly I'm horrible with color theory.

Pretty freaking cool style to render 40k in, period. Considering there a literal metric ton of decent 40k fanartists doing digital, I am always glad to find a fellow traditional artist.

Even more so when they outshine me by miles :meow:

I'd harbor a guess there's probably more than a literal metric ton. I mean the average person these days is like what... 200lbs?

180lbs, maybe. But then again, nerds. So, metric fuckton, then?

SW: Jajajaja, Son of the Lion. How does it feel to be featured on the Fenris wolves battle group? 100 Dark Angels you say? Your full Raven wing could could not out run the Pride and pleasure you have given us today.

Love the work dude, looks really bad ass. :D

Thanks. I'm pretty happy with it. I added a light-table to my studio, which gave me the chance to build the "set" in Lightwave3D. So I was able to do a lot more with the background than I usually do.

Cool. New approaches are always great to try out. Only thing that I would like to see more from you is studies. Anatomy studies would benefit you a lot.
Reply
:icondforrest:
dForrest Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I don't tend to put many of my studies up on the boards here. I save that kind of thing for more workshop themed sites like ConceptArt.org and PencilJack.com.

I'm launching a study right now on hands and feet, since they're giving me a particular headache right now. Doing it in a round about way though. I'm going to practice drawing hands and feet as drawn by other artists that I like. I know the anatomy of a hand and a foot... but it's not helping me render them.

So I'm going to look at practical application of that knowledge by others and see if something finally gels.
