One Final Effort by MajesticChicken One Final Effort by MajesticChicken
Colored up some Death Company boys going on a run-n-gun charge, while being harried by Night Lords from above.

I was going to post this with my final two submissions, but they are taking longer than expected so I let this one loose.

Original artist is Adrian Smith.

UPDATE: Holy shit, thanks for the DD and all the awesome comments!

------Libation to the Emperor -------- ( The imperial infantymans uplifting primer )

The Emperor is our guiding light

A beacon of hope for humanity in a galaxy darkness

As we serve Him
He is our greatest servant

As we pray to Him
His thoughts are only for us

And in the dark when the shadows threaten
The Emperor is with us
In spirit and in fact

While this does look more fantastic with colour, I got one little problem with it. . .

I know that the DDs are suggested and chosen by other people but really. . . any artist with access to photoshop and half a brain could replicate this in an hour or two. I don't see why colour overlaid pictures need any special snowflake attention.

i disagree, everyone who uses a tablet is able to actually draw, and as such they have their own style, everyone does. and for those who have to use a mouse (like me) suck at digital since using a mouse is almost impossible.

Yes but that's DRAWING, not doing a colour overlay. With a gradiant here and there, a spotch and a dab of colour, anyone can do it.

Clearly you know nothing of graphic designing. I'm a graphic designer, and what MajesticChicken is doing is cheating when it comes to art. All he's doing is grabbing someone else's artwork, putting one layer of colour on it and taking all the glory that comes along with it.

Seriously [link] its that easy, I did that shit in 5 minutes.

you still need to know how to blend, and you need to know color theory. i can't blend worth shit, yet i know my color theory and colors how they go together.

You gotta understand, that's me doing it in 5 minutes. If I spent a good hour on it, it'd be fugging amazing. Look, here's something in 10 minutes with a mouse! [link]

But what I'm saying, is that this is a simple job. I don't understand why people have to praise this so much when really, ANYONE can do it.

i do, but i still think that coloring is more of a talent than many will admit. i'm not saying it's a godly gift, but still. and honestly i thought they did the linework... XD AND i'm a 3d animator (a shitty one, since i don't have a movie/video that i actually made) and an amatuer DJ.... so yeah..... if you want to see what i mean i have a comic up that i used my animation program to make. XD

anyway, i think we can all agree, that the line work is at least amazing.

I feel for those two Chaos cultists. Damn. The guy on the left isn't even holding on to his machine gun anymore, as if to say "Well, I did want to see Khorne's Skull Throne someday...looks like that time is, err.../headexplodes."
