Polished up this one further. I love these scales, but I didnt know how to arrange them at first.
No. 5419 ID: e755b2
Careful with the scales, as they are, they make the torso look flat because they don't follow a very distinguishable curve. That's why I didn't suggest you to include them on the armor, but only on the hide. That being said, actual scales can be a lot harder to draw than sculpted, stylized ones, but at least, they don't require such geometrical precision.
No. 5420 ID: 23311f

The way I envisioned it was basically a pelt over the armor, obscuring the actual curves and stuff. Because I tried a version without it, and it doesnt feel right. I don't really know how I could represent the salamander feel to it.

No, I meant the Iconography, It doesnt even feel like primarch Vulkan if I do the flat armor version, nor does it look like he's a Salamander, it just looks like an odd dude in plate with a dragon skull on a shoulder...

I am not sure how to explain this feeling.

that's what I thought. most lizards, especially big ones, don't have smooth, angled scales (or not as much as snakes) they have a more rugose texture, and the scales don't necessarily overlap.

Using real people's face as a reference can help you.

As I suggested you to use Michael Wincott as a reference for Fulgrim, Curze or Corax, using Brandon Lee for Corax could be of some help. Also, big forehead, and lolreference.

I would even go as far as to suggest Ron Perlman for Lyyn Elgonsen, but he doesn't look like Emps enough.

No. 5624 ID: 22db35
Ah, sorry but nope. This doesn't look good. The pose is awkward, the muscles are just round curves, there's not enough depth or distinction between plans, the cloth does not fold realistically around the shoulders or the horns, and the head is strangely conical.

Your preliminary sketch was a lot better.
No. 5625 ID: d7f3ef

Preliminary sketch was a copy off something. I was not contempt with it at all, since it didn't feel like mine. Whats wrong with the pose?

Right. If you go for a non-natural pose, try to make it a bit dynamic.

Here. Because when you look closely, Magnus isn't so much Egyptian than he is Indian, visually speaking.
No. 5640 ID: d7f3ef

He looks a bit passive, and he's lacking the Wrestling style beefy arms, I am loving the pose and hands, but I am not sure how or if they fit him...
No. 5641 ID: 22db35
well, it's a lot more dynamic than the one you did. I'd say it's meant to look quiet, not really passive. As for the arms, bulk the out as you wish, I'm just suggesting a pose. An alternative would be to make him look actually passive, like most of those you did.
No. 5642 ID: 22db35
also, if you look at most illustrations of him or at his fluff, he's not a CQC monster, and the bare arms are probably more a reference to depictions of hindu heroes than simply here to show that he's strong. That's why I chose this pose, instead of a more generic spellcasting pose.
No. 5643 ID: d7f3ef
Thanks for your support, I'll see what I can do, but I asked if my current sketch could be salvaged.
No. 5644 ID: 22db35
maybe by letting both arms hang down, and by working on the volumes. Frankly, I'd say you should have sketched out several ones first with your tablet.

If it doesn't work, trying to "salvage" it will end up worse, most of the time.
No. 5645 ID: d7f3ef
What do you mean by volumes?
No. 5646 ID: 22db35
depth. As I said, it looks quite flat, mostly because the cloth looks like it's hanging loose while his torso is supposed to be massive. and you drew each arm sockets with a different angle.

That's why we don't know if he's supposed to be completely facing, slightly 3/4, or something else. That's a problem with the structure itself, and correcting it on the same drawing will be more tiresome and time-wasting than starting a new one with a clearly defined angle with a proper use of masses.

Interesting. So you are taking the greyscale with colour overlay approach? I used to do that sometimes as well. I find that greyscale is really nice and easy to work with, but doesn;t translate into colour very well.

No. 5763 ID: 607f35

Well, I dunno, I use the technique for Space Marine Quest art, but little else. I just find that colour never seem to come out realistically [for me]. Maybe it's a stylistic choice, but I never am satisfied with how it results.
There seems to be no way to effectively vary a hue, which I find necessary.
No. 5764 ID: 607f35

Erk! Forgot to comment on the actual image. I dunno, what you have there is pretty good. Maybe mixing it up with some gold (which I assume you'll be doing) will make it look a lot nicer altogether.

Well Silly as it may sound I consider doing these things this way because firstly, you are building the armor (lineart) then you are casting it in Ceramite! (shading and whatnot) Then you apply the rigorous rituals of painting and proper litanies untill you end up with something like this.

I kind of need some help here...I really am stumped a bit
I don't know what can i do to make the lighting more impressive and or to add some atmosphere? (maybe from the background)

I also feel like the head isnt placed right, his chin seems to be touching the armor, should i move it more upright or something? see the picture.

Im not sure if his face is shaped correctly, or if i placed all his features right, this seems to be the hardest part for me , since side glances tend to shave off some of the features depending on lighting

and any other suggestions are welcome?

And is the hair flowing okay?
No. 5787 ID: bf00a9
Uhm, yes. Moving it up seems to help, but you don't want it to seem like he has an elongated neck. Especially in such hefty armour.

I don't really know about how to aid in the highlighting area, that seems to be one of the problems I ahve encountered with the technique you are using.

Guys, I need a bit of advice here, I got an interesting comment from an Anon, and I quote : "The hair shouldn't go over the edge of the hole for the head. Since the head is neatly tucked inside said hole (Fulgrim's chin is not on the same plane as the little bump on the foreground), and the hole's perspective implies it's a round hole, the hair should be inside the hole.
You could throw your hair out over the armor if you really wanted to, at least in the front of your head. The real issue is that the distance between the collar and the neck doesn't match up at all with the length of hair spilling over the collar on the right. It looks like the head under the hair is some hideous shape that follows the lines of the armor. "

I am not sure wether I really fucked it up or just need to edit the hair spilling inside the armor a bit.
No. 5819 ID: 37b986
I say you should completely avoid making it spill out; the collar would need to be extremely close to his face for the hair to spill out.

There. And it's still a bit too flat.

Try to cross your arms properly when your torso and arms are about five times thicker than an average human male's, while being only twice as long. your arms will be nearly horizontal and each hand will barely be touching the opposite arm.

The waist doesn't fit in there. The armor models at the top are even different, apparently to obscure this fact.

I hate it when people obscure facts so that they look like they've discovered something clever. Fact of the matter is, powered armor like that can't contain something that has proper proportions- the shoulders are too far apart compared to the rest of the body.

-The face was painted in color, as for the armor, some parts were painted grey, and some with direct colors
-The background was painted on a normal layer, and so was the fogg, I usually use a layer mask for it, its quite helpful
-I used a layer set to color to add some orange or purple effects
-I made a normal layer and painted some highlights and a few colors
-I made a multiply layer and addded a few shadows
-I used the gradient tool to set the light sources, the sky and the light coming from the lava, erasing the bits i didnt like.
-I also made use of the color balance option, shadows/higlights and brightness/contrast on the main layer, which contained the armor and the face

okay, I understand better how you proceed; Actually, I was more wondering about the arm: if you were using a specific system/technique or just proceeding empirically.

But anyway, you might rely too much on layers, perhaps that's why your portraits tend to look heterogenous, especially the faces contrasting a lot with the armor.

But as I haven't seen what you can do while working on a single layer, I can't say if it's really a problem.

Unlikely. If you're talking about Deathwisher, I've identified her most recent DA account (or so I think, the profile pics and the user informations are extremely similar anyway) and her drawing style is deeply different from TD's.

I never understood where this theory comes from anyway. People showed me an encyclopedia-dramatica page in russian that supposedly proves that Deathwisher and Torture Device are the same person. I google-translated it, and no such thing was mentioned or even alluded in it.

There are tons of kids like this in eastern europe; on DA they are pretty easy to spot, and even their art style is similar. Doesn't mean they are a single troll.

good pose, but the arm is really long (oh, well, it's the case on most illustrations), and the chest horns too tiny. Over all, you often tend to make everything look reasonable, moderated, clean and simple. It looks very efficient and relevant on some Primarchs like Alpharius/Omegon and Ferrus, but not on others.

The Astartes shoulders are not connected to the chestplate. They are wired in by cables entering the black carapace, and actually are linked directly into the muscle structure of the astartes via insertion of a needle thing in one of those round things.

But okay! Thanks again for the input and OH Loads of thanks for the Magnus picture you drew a while ago. It's got me thinking on various alternate poses for primarchs.

okay, basically, the shoulder muscles are merely extensions of the chest, not of the arms, the deltoids start deep in the collar/torso, and then wrap around the articulation and over the pectorals, which themselves are supposed to connect to the humerus. That means that most of the muscles that move an arm are located on the torso, are not clearly distinguishable, and you need to show it.

So, to reach the shoulders where you placed them, his torso would need to be even thicker than his power armor.

The solution consists in drawing the arm accordingly to his body, and not the contrary

I don't know mush about anatomy myself, but by practicing a bit with a trick I learnt, you can get a very useful intuition of how it all works (don't forget to back it up with anatomical references, of course)

I already mentioned it, but it really helps to do a first draft with only one line if possible. this way, you "weave" the musculature over the skeleton (you know, not only the actual one, but the one you can sketch up to get the length of the limbs right and stuff), instead of just "cobbling" the outlines together. It gives a basic idea of how the masses work together, and of the dynamics and tensions of the musculature

you can also use this technique for other things, but it works best for anatomy.

better, now.

a thinner collar around the biceps would be cool, too. It looks antique and makes arms look tougher.

are you really going for the regular marine pauldrons?

they look better than on the previous image, however.

Yes I am using the normal pauldrons because I cannot find any fitting oriental style,gandered at other artwork, tried to create my own, but it just doesn't really feel like a Primarch, without the typical Astartes shoulders.

I've also overgrown the fear of him being too thin, Turns out I was missing the general "flex" of the muscles, so to speak.

I thought the same thing about the collar, but I started working on the Tusknipples and it started looking even better.
No. 7148 ID: a3eb69
I know it is tricky because of the subtle curves, but you drew both spikes as if they were facing us.

the left one looks wrong, at its base.
No. 7149 ID: 5ddeef

Why yes! They are curving inward then outward. Thought about that extravagant thing you told me about. Should I add Tusks coming from the back as well?

And are they supposed to be equal in size and simmetry? I always thought these were actual animal horns...
No. 7150 ID: a3eb69
I'm just saying that, in order to be coming out of the chestplate through a circular opening, they have to be pointing frontwards at the base (and then inwards, then outwards, then inwards...)
otherwise, the opening should be an ellipse pointing towards the center of his chest (which would look rather incongruous)

basically, the cross-section you drew (the opening) does not match the inclination of the tusks as you drew them.

also, yes, do add some in the back.
No. 7151 ID: a3eb69
again, it's only the left one that is at stake, the right one looks rather okay.
No. 7152 ID: 5ddeef

Alright we are talking about HIS left right? I can see that the horn with the little bracer on it has the problem with the base. I just hurried up a bit with some colors for a friend, and to get a better feel on how it would stand out.

I dont really know what color scheme to choose tho. I'd like to pick out a proper color spectrum.

Oh and I haven't mentioned yet, I want to add warpfire or something around his hand. And maybe some flowing out of his open eye.
No. 7153 ID: a3eb69
for the color range, try dusk/evening sky colors with strong contrasts

terracotta, pale blue, salmon pink, bright red, deep indigo...

and yes, when referring to left/right, I'm always talking about the character's side.
No. 7154 ID: 5ddeef

Oh wow that sounds awesome.

And about this warpfire thing, colors, and how would you envision it? Misty smoke? Flame? combination?
No. 7156 ID: a3eb69
more exotic

maybe like an incandescent splash of water, that dissolves into light smoke, or something involving thick smoke that looks almost solid and burns out from the outside (reverse-fire)

I don't know, try stuff with unusual textures

the forgeworld lord of change has a whirling mass of flesh in his hand, with the right paintjob it can look like fire.

No. 7198 ID: 51eb74
looking good, so far

some use the SAI paint tool, mostly because it has a stabilizing function (prevents you from messing up strokes too much) and because it can somewhat simulate oil painting mixing (basically a fancy version of the smudge tool under photoshop)
but there are other things that I'm not aware of. I don't even know if I can put it on my mac.

Whilst the left shoulders are exactly what you said, smaller decorations, lighter things such as iconography representing their rank, or "role" in said chapter, or custom trophies, flayed skins, purity seals, or chaotic parchments , spell wards etc.

Minecraft. I seriously hope this isn't some hipster stuff.

I like Minecraft...
No. 8115 ID: 54a0bd
it's okay, hipster things are things that aren't supposed to be enjoyed for themselves.

for instance: brightly-colored Marvel shirts with old-school Jack Kirby drawings printed on them, are not meant to be worn by people who like old Marvel comics, but by hipsters who have no idea how to dress up tastefully, and choose to put purposefully ridiculous clothing instead so that, with a bit of chance, nobody will take their lack of taste seriously.

Minecraft is genuinely enjoyable, it's okay if you enjoy it genuinely.

Like the people that watch the big bang theory comedy thing, wear Green Lantern T-shirts and have no clue what a Green Lantern is!

Skeptical marines are dissapoint.

So I named this guy Fleishkunstler Heinrich.

This is my very first "OC DONUTSTEEL" thing.


I have not written it off. I am just not very comfortable with that many characters in one painting.

I can't really draw squats, I barely pull off dwarves >>8112

But I do like Cata-chan, and the idea. Just not right now.

No worries man, feel free to alter the idea as you want, I certainly don't want to impose on you.

And HAHAHAHA, man, bare space marine midriff never ceases to be hilarious.

added some tormented skulls on the pauldrons and cleaned it up a bit.

I think I got the depth just right, I am not sure about the chestplate design, or the collar tip.

Looks good. Reminds me of that thing I drew a while ago. I love the general image of enthroned astartes.

HAHA! Oh wow, they look similar!

What I wanted with this particular scene was to depict Konrad Curze's last words, yanno, before M'shen jumped him.

But perspective was being a bitch to me, so I had to cut down on size...

Cleaned this mess up.

I still have some work to do on the hairstyle , facial expression.

And I am not sure the blades are satisfactory.

Also Throne Design.

arrr.... that'll take a lot of work with the coloring to make it look believable.

now this is awesome! you should draw a bit more cartoonish stuff from time to time, just to get more used to simple, efficient linework.

some parts of the toga are a bit weird, though.

Hah, thanks. I went overboard with cloth, because I couldn't draw the creases accordingly. So I just went with shoving some towels here and there. But its nice for a 20 min sketch, I guess. Glad you like it.

Feels good to fire people for not knowing what the hell an HDMI is.

Even though they've been working as QAtesters for over 4 months.

Dear, this is NOT what I had expected.
There aren't even any negative silhouette skulls.
But it's very nice.
And who did you fire?
No. 8474 ID: c118c9

Negative sillhouettes usually come with shading after you pick a lightsource, in Lineart it doesnt really have to show, unless you plan it to stay lineart.

I fired a fucking jackoff tester that couldn't keep his quota up. He apparently was working for 4 months without knowing how to plug in an Xbox or how an HDMI worked.

The wonders you see as a HR/Community Manager for EA Romania never ceases to end.

EA as in the EA that killed Westwood Studios?

Sadly yes.

But I doubt the Bucharest section, also known as Jamdat which started out originally as a mobile phone division , had anything to do with killing westwood.

But I do agree. EA kills games.

At least it pays my bills.
