I am a freelance illustrator and work for as many people as possible, i've been drawing some warhammer in my free time.

Oh god that would be awesome. A setting reset is fine by me. Maybe start it out on a planet with an atmosphere this time, and let us terraform it?

heres an attempt useing non digital at a warhammer style small sketch, this is usualy how the dudes at GW do theirs, lots of paint and time then tweaks in photoshop. There are some fully digital works being done now by adrian smith and the koplinski's but i've always liked the traditional work.

Good on ya for the enthusiasm, mate, but you got your work cut out for you. You need to work on poses and design, and your anatomy, lighting and materials don't really shine yet. I recommend more life drawings dispersed among the warhammer ones. That being said, keep at it. You should try out Artrage and Alias Sketchbook pro. I can't Imagine why you would need Photoshop for the grayscale pics you show here and both of those are extremely light-weight and with awesome intuitive interface to optimize your work process. Give Painter a shot if you haven't, i really couldn't get past the artifacts and visual bugs in it, but have colleagues who swear by it. Speaking purely about warhammer, you need way more ornamental details on your characters. The one I like the most is the one with the multitude of character sketches. Oh and concept artist in a major game company here (which doesn't really mean shit).

This man said most of what I was going to say in regards to criticism - listen to him.

Particularly on the whole posing and ornamentations thing. Remember, Warhams is like the Baroque style, but IN SPACE and WITH SKULLS, and turned up to thirteen. If there's a centimeter of your armor that looks sleek and plain, add something there!

You're doing some great work and it's defiantly a cut above what we've been getting as of late.

Though I have one thing to say, it looks like you're going to have some problems selling your skills. You look like every other artist proficient with photoshop. While this isn't bad you just don't seem to stand out.

>> No.11244194

yeah tell me about it, i've got 8 months to get my shit to the higher level.

>> No.11244369

Damn, sorry to hear that. Though if you got this far you have the ability to beat yourself up to the next as any art learning is some combination of masochism and psychotic break and you've gotten this far.

Though I think the thing I'm catching on is that it seems like I can see the brush more than what it's trying to represent, inexplicably round areas and that.

Anyways you probably have this more on your mind more than you should. Good luck in your endeavors and thanks for the good artfagging, we haven't had it in a while.
