ref used for the crab hand, 7 hours in PS but I had to rush at the end to catch the deadline. Also I initially planned to submit 3 entries but I just couldn't find the time to get all of them done. Maybe I'll work on them later when the contest is over anyways.
It's 8 a.m. over here and I spent the whole night drawing... gotta get some sleep now..
Well shit, more I worked on this more i felt bad about it. Sure he wasn't stable in the sketch... i tried to fix that... somehow, cant recall how(real good). But oh well, can't say I learned much on this one. But I want to draw all them primarchs.. Biting more then I can chew kinda thing.
Anyways, behold Leman Russ, the Wolf King. Biggest badass in the astrates. Now that is arguable I know. BUT! My opinion of the savage is faltering, lately I've been burning through some wh30k books, and currently im on Thousand Sons. Must say, that I rather respect Magnus more. For Wolves are the best in the field of slaying, and just that, they are an unstoppable genocidal machine but I rather prefer the Thousand Sons. For their search of knowledge suits me more then pure close minded genocide.
SWEET LORD IN HEAVENS I ALMOST DIDN'T MAKE IT TO THE DEADLINE. Here's my entry.
I gave it a little thought about what exactly should this guy be in terms of specific form, but I almost immediately decided it'd be a Death Colossus, mostly because I wanted to draw something with skulls and stuff. Eventually while working on it I had the idea of this guy being some sort of walking tomb/graveyard. In retrospect, I would've liked to include more buildings/structures/graves, sadly I am a terrible mess at organizing my time and I had a ton of work this weekend, so I had to make it a lot more simple. I hope the perspective shows the scaling of the creature well, it's something I usually try to take into account when making something so big. Anyway, enough of my rambling, hope you guys like this. :]
