Space Marine

This is my first rendered attempt at depicting a Warhammer Space Marine. He's wearing the heavier armor that is described in the books, but not so bulky as to obliterate his humanoid shape. He's holding the "bolt-gun" which the Space Marines carry. It shoots projectiles bigger than bullets, like small artillery shells. The Warhammer reference images show the bolt-guns to be surprisingly small, like a futuristic Uzi. I don't know much about weapons but perhaps in this gun-conscious society I ought to know more, especially if I illustrate military fantasy. The armor design needs more work to make it look more move-able. The armor is self-contained and serves as a space suit as well as in battle. It doesn't look very comfortable. But your Space Marine is a tough guy.

"Space Marine" is in Pitt ink markers and Copic grayscale markers, 4" x 7", February 13-15, 2013.
