Wh40K: Tank Hunter by StugMeister Wh40K: Tank Hunter by StugMeister
For the Illuminatus Weekly Sketch Mission titled "Tank Hunter."

An Eldar Revenant Titan spots it's prey, readying it's Pulsars to immolate the poor defenceless Rhino APC!


Although I'm happy with the Rhino, the Titan and general composition I can't help but feel I could have tackled tthe buildings better; made them more 'real'. They just seem too flat to me.

I might just have another go at this pic sometime in the future- sort out the colours and various other issues that are niggling me. Oh and maybe do some colour work.

Ah, well, you see an Eldar Revenant Titan skips and jumps around on anti-grav units so it has little or no impact on the ground. Plus it must be quite noisy on the battlefield! ;)

Cheers! :ahoy:

I think you need to put some work in on the perspective. Looking at the top and bottom edges of the Rhino's side the vanishing pint would be somewhere around the base of the tower.

Also take a look at the headlights. The left one appears almost side on and the right one almost square on.

The lighting is also inconsistent, elements on the right are lit from the left, but the Rhino is lit from the right. The large building behind the rhino doesn't seem to be casting a shadow at all.

On the plus side it is recognizably a Rhino about to get zonked by an Eldar titan. I also dig the gritty texture on the foreground rubble :)

I did this pic quite a while back - I think it shows how I've improved. I won't be going back to it.

I agree with all that you've said! :)

na, your not going to do that... your just going to let it set there like how it is... because fixing it is more work than its worth.

dont often think of titans as being stealthy, but the concept fits nicely with the eldar fluff. nice work on the tank n perspective.

Um.. sir the scaners say a titan is closing in.
Nonsense if a titan was moving nearby we would hear it.
Awsome, that APC is fucked.

Overall really good. I like The sunlight hitting the titan vs the Rhino in the shadows. A cool effect could be like if you added in the guns on the titan powering up to blast the APC to pieces.

Thanks mate,

I was trying to go for a real sun-lit image.

Brilliant cinematic look here. I especially like the bloom-like effect around the left side ruin, and the design of the city behind.

My one suggestion would be add some texture to the road, as at the moment it looks way too flat compared to the depth and texture of the rest of the picture.

Thanks mate!

Like I said, there's lots that I'd like to do with this pic - textures included.

The road is a must for texture and I'd love to crack up the wall being the RHino a lot more too.

Thanks for the C&C sir!
