It is all blury because all I have done so far is block in the colour. The loin cloth is one I do like very much, thanks.
Overall I hate the atmosphere it presents. The legs were based on the Huron Blackheart model.

Thankyou for dragging this back up, I have some updates :evil:
Here are some VERY VERY WIP projects:

I've got another, but I'm not sure about posting regulations. Are lost and Damned still accepted?
Anyway, I'd love some heavy criticism.

I really like the way the coloring and shading have come out. Keep up the good work. I would recommend you give him a HQ marking, but seeing how you're already working on the shoulder pad, I wont bother.

Alright....time for some crit :P ;)

Your sig looks good! I would say keep the eyes white but have them glow, is he not a sorcerer? Next up, the lighting. Its all very good, however I think the hair could use a little more work because it looks like he has a mesh of hair a very different color (unless that's what you were wanting to achieve :wink: ...). Now the lightning, very good, can't see a fault there! Finally, the unfinished backpack and background...tsk tsk...sometimes a blend of unfinished sketches work with finished art, but I don't think it does right now...the actual backpack looks great though.

Knowing you quite well, and seeing your art progress is fun, keep up the good work ;)

Cheers,
Brother P.

Thankyou sandman!
@ Mista P: the eyes actually turned out better than originally planned. the very sketch itself is not done, and the sig is like a colour test. why not eh? when he's done his eyes will glow and the will be daemonic shadows flitting about him. The hair and other odd pink parts are my attempt at source lighting the lightning, and it didn't really turn out. The lightning was a pic off google :lol: ! With the backqround issue: it is like I said just a test sort of thing, but I agree in this situation. I never really figured how to draw backgrounds <_< the backpack is a pleasant surprise, because I HATE backpacks, but what do ya know, I can draw them B)
Thanks guys :)

This is a WIP marine[thing] for Molotov's Harvesters
I've done some other work for the harvesters already, but it is too WIP to share. I think I will attempt a Nurgle or Khorne signature in corel soon, which will be interesting, but exams are coming up and I'm already sweating.

If you haven't seen it get 'The Gothic and the Eldritch'

It's all Jes Goodwin's design process for giving to the sculptors- very awesome stuff. A lot of it ain't Power Armoured, but it's awesome anyway. I'm not sure if it's still in print, but it should be.

He drew a 1:1 scale picture of a Marine, eight foot high... it really is an awesome book.

Incidentally, you might wanna pay just a tad more attention to scale, the Iron Hand guy's arms look just a little puny, even the PF.

For each warrior that dies in the Emperor's name, His eye sheds an infinitesmal tear. These tears are collected in tiny vials the size of an infant's finger, and even these small containers hold hundreds of the tears. The vials are emptied into a chalice emblazoned with gold and frescoes of the glories of Mankind, and only during the bloodiest battles does the chalice run over.

proportionately every thing is correct. the heads are too small for sure, but that helps with the bulkiness.

Well, looks like it's time for an update :(

Since mr. Hacky-nore has been getting some new attention, and Kombat-Unit posted I-burn[my new favorite piece by him] on deviantart, I have been inspired to do something lava-y. SO here's hakanor's reaver:
