For The Emperor by MajesticChicken For The Emperor by MajesticChicken
Colored up this pic of Doom Eagles in action.

Also, I feel like pointing out that this is the beginning of the end, in terms of colorizations. I will be going back to school again this fall so I'll be sketching like a madman in the interim, which means no time for colors. I've got about 20 pics to go, more or less, most of them BAngels & SWolves, and the last one will be suitably epic.

After the last colorization, more deviations might come, but at a very slow pace, like months apart probably.


Original artist is Dave Gallagher.

Thanks man, but the artwork is not entirely mine, just colors. I'm pleased you enjoy it so much.

Very nicely done al the way through, the detail to the dark eldar is also good, to make them seem shadowy but still present, and the lighting on the bolters just makes it look like a reall firestorm.
One thing that might add too, is the making the shells exiting the guns seem redhot.

:pray:"All of creation suffers, young ones. Only in accepting our own mortality can we make a difference. Only in bearing the burden of our failures can we find the strength to go on. Only in detachment from glory, or honour, or jealousy... from life itself can we hope to spare others from grief."

We are Doom Eagles. And we are dead already.
+++ Librarian Secundus Thryn of the Doom Eagles +++

:clap:Quiet in all things to say here is awesome to the extreme in part of how the Coloring really brings out Magnificence, Awe-Inspiring, Strength, Determination and Fear such Sons of the Incredible Roboute Guilliman could bring into the Harsh Battlefield of the Forty 1st Millennium.

But still I really like to point out that the Original Color Schemes of the Doom Eagles are just Silver painted on there entire Power Armour. With exceptions that you got right of there Power Pack that's Black, there Chapter Insignia with a bit of White on the Skull on there Left Shoulder Plate along with the Red Color on there Front Plate where the Aquila is right.

Ah thank you. The pic originally had them this black, they were not rendered to look particularly metallic. As for the reds, yes I went a little unofficial on the color scheme, but it was only to promote visual interest.

If it comes down to maintaining codex approved colors or doing what's best for the pic, I'll go for what looks best in the pic.

Thanks for the support!
