Dark Eldar Covens by agnidevi Dark Eldar Covens by agnidevi
An illustration for upcoming Haemonculus Covens supplement for Dark Eldar Codex.

The original piece is 6k wide and it took me a lot of planning, painting, repainting & compositing.

Although Warhammer 40,000 is a space gothic fantasy I wanted to show a real combat look and feel.

прекрасно! А подскажи, пожалуйста, где можно скачать такую красоту (и остальные твои работы) в 6К, ну или хотя бы в чуть большем разрешении, чем 748р?

Вархаммера в высоком разрешении в сети нет. По остальным работам, если есть hi-res, то он обычно лежит тут же на девианте.

To my mind, this is the best piece of 40k artwork out there.  When I bought the Covens supplement I groused about the price, until I saw the new art, ESPECIALLY this one.

Hope those Guardsman save a round for themselves. Better to die than be captured by the Dark Eldar.

Dark Eldar looks so good! :O But, just a technical question, why Imperial Guard don't have laser rifle?

The imperial guard can also be issued autoguns (the same as machine guns to us). :) . That and heavy stubbers and stuff like that :)

No problems at all... poor guardsman probably got the wrong shipment... autoguns is usually reserved for pdf's I think? I might be completely off on that theory but they are a commmon item next to the common stc lasgun :)

Мощнейшая картина :) я не художник, конечно, поэтому технические детали оценить не могу, но в целом - смотрится потрясно. Отличное сочетание масштаба и пафоса с реалистичностью.

How much reference would you use in a picture like this? it's very difficult to imagine how you did this.
Reply
:iconagnidevi:
agnidevi Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2014   Digital Artist
That's a good question. I guess I ended up referencing almost every pose in terms of anatomy (how this body would look like from that angle?). For lighting and mood I relied on various movies like Thor or Battle LA.
