My two favorite armies combined!!!!!!

Looks so much cooler than any actual grey knights

(PS: fav armies= grey knights + space wolves)

Seeing all the beards and braids, is this a grey knight from the Space Wolves?

This... is actually quite poor, really. It's the perfect example of the triumph of detail over form.

Looking at your work, it strikes me as what would happen if Rembrandt -no, if Titian!- had entered a newspaper coloring contest, and neatly filled his masterwork into the printed lineart originally drawn ...by a talented 12-year old.


That nemesis halbered must be sprouting from his right hand, because otherwise it would be passing through the middle of his wrist-bolter. His joints must be frozen in place because there's no way they could possibly function or articulate. And the head must actually be a clever sculpture welded in place, since the hair and beard interact with neither the armor they seem to be sitting in, nor the violent wind that's whipping up his cape and purity seal.

You have captured all the richness and adornment and uniqueness we have always imagined that a Grey Knight's armor would incorporate, but you have missed the iconic profile and silhouette that tells us he is a Grey Knight!

You are without question one of the most talented painters ever to work on 40K materiel, but God, I wish you had spent more time developing your draftsmanship. =(

thanks for the input bud
its always good to get a detailed response to artwork.
well in my deffence it is just a concept piece like most of the others which are done in about half day
im mostly focusing on pushing the idea and not the quaity of the painting that will come later with the concept that i like the most and thats why the halberd dosent look quite rite with the beard laying correctly and flowing in the wind same with the cape and eagle.
i completely understand about the deatil and it can be a flaw with me as i get carryed away but thats only with my personal work if other wise state in the project.
with the silhouette the point of you saying he dosent have the normal shape is because im trying different ideas with the grey knights characters some may work very well some may not ie the cape as ~Big0Jack said is wrong and probably puts the shape and form completely off.
anyways thanks again for your crits and praises they all help and get my thinking in different ways
cheers

The cape is positioned kind of oddly, but otherwise, it's outstanding work as usual. :)

I am going to have a different word to use, awesome just doesn't cover it anymore!!

I am wondering how you create such images so quickly? Do you have a time lapse video I can watch on youtube lasting appox half an hour with some incredible music overlayed? Please? Someday? ;)
Some of the finest 40k artwork i've ever seen.

i will try and do one of those videos soon and get my good friend to help promise!

well with these say character images that i have done im just trying to get the idea across with good dynamics and so forth and then details are second. i have so many ideas that i have to work fast and get as many as i can done because i dont have enough time cuz of work. if i could i would do the hole grey knights chapter( which i mite do haha). but some i will try and put more work into them like my older images wer i have worked into them alot more.
hope that helps

What do you do for a living I guess is my first question?

I guess you've covered all i asked there, I am interested in that area, naturally, digital art really grips me especially when you create some incredible thing so quickly! It would take me 1 week minimun to paint your stuff on canvas!!

Thankyou so much for the compliment! hellboy sits nicely on my wall and fends off generous offers of cash to own it (for now haha!)
