I am so used to Rhodes looking intense or mean that this was really jarring for me to see, let alone draw.
What did you do!?
I’ve still got a long way to go with my art and drawings and such, but I am glad that expressions are coming along more than they used too~
Gun bandoliers are still a pain in the butt!
I was going to create a ‘reference’ image of Rhodes for future use, but I figured that his outfits wouldn’t deviate much from what he wears canon-ly in Day of the Dead so it turned into this instead.
I was thinking of infuriating aspects that I could add to his personality even in such a simple image – which is why his boot laces are untied!
Can’t run away from the undead hordes without tripping over with your laces untied! Idiot.
I am so back into this fandom and I am even contemplating writing a fanfiction with them again.
I’ve never really had much success when it comes to writing them before because I’ve always doubted my skills and struggled for a setting and solid idea for them; I think I might have cracked this now.
Just need to get started on it.
Until then, please enjoy this image of Rhodes topless as much as humanly possible!!
I’ve been back into the whole “Day of the Dead” fandom lately. It’s funny how these things get kicked back into our brains.
I was looking to see if The Walking Dead was available to watch on Netflix (It isn’t) but as a result it showed me Day of the Dead: Bloodline. It was all downhill from there.
I’ve been mostly enjoying sharing artwork and thoughts over on an instagram account that I made for the purposes of enjoying the ‘fandom.’ I state fandom in that way because quite honestly, there is only really me making content for it; and the occasional piece of fan art from others. It’s pretty lonely, but I think it’s also what I needed right about now. Something that I can casually enjoy and think about while I am going about my usual day to day.
It’s also great cause I have a lot that I can share from throughout the years; collaborations, giftarts, drawings and the likes to keep me inspired.
But, I thought it would be an awesome thing to share on here as well, cause Day of the Dead has been one of my longer term fandoms; dating back to 2004ish. When was at animal college and really discovered horror movies. I remember making a leaflet about sympathy for the zombies from that movie for my IT project; I didn’t take IT seriously!
But yeah, have a picture of Kiz and Rhodes – it’s certainly nothing ground breaking, but it’s a start down this nightmare track again~
A lot of my artwork is inspired by silly conversation over on Twitter. When discovering that there is someone out there who has as much need for Pin Up Space Marines as I do, I had to get back to work on that sort of thing!
It also fits in with the whole, trying to get better at drawing Space Marines thing, that I have going on at the moment.
The challenge is to do enough of these for a calendar. I won’t be able to get them done in time for 2019, I am not that fast, but I shall look into getting something sorted for 2020. I may look into doing my own KickStarter or some such, if the idea gets enough traction! As I sadly, cannot afford to create something like this out of my own pockets. We shall see! It will be good fun to draw them up regardless~
If you have any ideas for specific Chapters for the calendar, let me know!?
I am trying to do an amazing picture of Noise Marine still and progress hasn’t been all that strong. I still feel like I am not getting the fundamental shape of Space Marines right just yet so I might have to have another hunt for a basic model and have another try. This was my latest attempt; which I got as far as lining in and then left it. Looking over it this morning, I’m not going to be finishing this one as I feel a bit too much of it doesn’t look right – nothing wrong with reassessing your work and binning it.
I shall give him another go in the near future. He has such an awesome design and I want to produce a piece of fan art that does him justice!
There are mistakes with this one, but isn’t that the entire point of practising – so that you get better and improve on previous pictures?
Chaos isn’t my usual flavour, but who could say no to such a wonderful Noise Marine?
He is clearly based on the newly re-announced miniature from Game Workshop that’ll be hitting stores on the 22nd of December~
As mentioned previously, I am trying to change my content direction a bit and do more with the Warhammer hobby; be it photography, drawings, games or painting (Or anything else I can think of.)
I did a bit of sketching yesterday – I’d like to make Space Marines a part of my daily drawing practise as it’s the only way I’ll improve my craft with them – and these are the two I came up with.
They are both of the same character, Lucas Agrahim, a tactical sergeant from my Blood Guard chapter and twin of Rafen (Who needs a new first name as he currently shares the same name as my son which feels a bit weird now)
When I get some Bios up on here, there will be more about them both there~
