Wh40K: Drop Zone by StugMeister Wh40K: Drop Zone by StugMeister
Space Marines deploying via drop pod erm, drop. :)

I've been very busy working on the cover image for this project, got bogged down in fact. So I decided to have a go at this pic to help loosen me up a bit!

About 2hrs in PS CS1.

Trying to convey the impact was one of the biggest challenges of the pic.

This is awesome. Really skillful mans, the debris effect adds action to the pic that puts it up on another level.

Yup 2hrs, but it is only in greyscale and there really isn't that much detail. Does take some practice.

"We're on an express elevator to Hell, Going Down!!!"

The way they come down diagonally yet stand up straight once they settled in the ground...Do the pods automatically level themselves with the surface after impact?

They do have retros to correct them during flight but that would make for a boring pic. As it is the landed pods are slightly off, not entirely level.

I could imagine Marines just landing their drop pods directly into light duty buildings for extra shock value. :D Love how you've captured and conveyed the impact of the landing.

StugMeister Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks Cpt.Varro. :D

I can imagine them doing that too! A few tonnes of ceramite traveling that fast is likely to level anything it lands on.

No problem, I wish drop pods on the table top could smash whatever they land on instead of avoiding it. :D

I like the way you have managed to get across the heavy impact from the falling drop pod.

Not as effective unless they drop-pod into enemies.
Reply
:iconstugmeister:
StugMeister Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
True, but then again they could be being dropped deep behind enemy lines, ready to cut off lines of communication to the front. :)

In the drop pods are Space Marines. Space Wolves in fact. A few of them in the background could have dreadnoughts or support weapons in them.

By free linearts do you mean did I sketch the pic first? :?

I always do a sketch first in PS, then colour over and under the sketch layer.
