We fight for honor! We fight for humanity! we are humanity's last hope for defense. Whilst we stand we fight, whilst we fight we prevail. None shall stay our wrath......Anyways great job! You are an amazing artist!
Thou art truely welcome sir. Knew I the tongue of high gothic text I would surely bestow it upon thee as it 'twould be most appropriate at this time for your depiction of the glorious soldiers of the Adeptus Astartes. Ugh! No more "Olde English" for a while, I am starting to feel like a pompous prince....again.
May I make a suggestion? Attack all kinds of areas in Painter IX, using the 'glow brush' on a very dark setting. It works WONDERS for most illustrations
It looks marvelous when zoomed out a bit. When zoomed in, there's a very large mismatch in technique and detail that is distracting between the foreground and background. A little bit of details and polishing at the BG should help.
I would also add some kind of light source from behind the viewer, illuminating the soldiers a bit more. Hell, in general making them brighter would help (the glow brush might help there).
Give it a shot! I can almost guarantee an improvement
