The Colour Of Thunder

a update on my first posted rough, [link]

Freshly deployed Ultramarines. The company banner got uh.. stuck in the thunderhawk's access ramp >_>

I hope you all enjoy it :) Warhammer 40k is one of those things that grabbed me as a kid, and never let go! Too bad my wallet is too shallow to fully enjoy this brilliantly creative hobby T_T

As wonderful a job as you did with the Space Marines in the foreground, I think my favorite aspect of the painting is that missile explosion in the upper-right, mainly because it's rendered in such a detailed manner; the way the missile's trail is clearly visible, adding a sort of story to where the blast originated from, and conversely, the way the building is in the midst of crumbling and being split apart, suggesting what's about to happen.

Thanks so much! You know what? That also happens to be my favourite aspect of the image as well. Painting physical effects has always been a favourite of mine for numerous reasons; and I often lose myself in those wonderful areas in the image, trying to capture a sense of story, as you rightly put, in that frozen moment. Funny how we find story in things normally taken for granted :)
