Colonial marines inspired art

Post by McRamon » 14 Nov 2017, 04:30

Hello there! I am not very active on forums (read-only), but after a few months break i have returned to the server and was really amazed by all the changes (great work devs), had a few awesome rounds and was inspired to make some little artwork i would like to share with you. Hope someone likes it!

Oh dude, this is pretty great.
If you scale it up, some people would probably use it as a wallpaper.

i dont think it is possible for me to make a bigger res version than it is, or it will take some time polishing it. but current res is 3400x3350 pixels, isnt that enough?

Hello again!
I made a happy little art which was highly inspired by colonial marines. It doesnt really represents marines themselves, i didnt use any reference for armor look or something, marines dont have cloaks, which i added for some dramatic effect and i really love cloaks. Anyway, here it is, i called it "last hope" (i know, i know).

i am starting to think that i can only associate marines with death

Also, if any of you can help me with constructive criticism, i would really appreciate it

Nothing that I can personally see that looks wrong. The cloak looks a little strange on a marine but other than that, really nice work man. Keep it up. :)

This has a very Grimdark tone to it. It looks really good especially with the shading.
