Shrapnel Concept by ukitakumuki Shrapnel Concept by ukitakumuki
Done for [link]

Some preconcept 'set pieces' that went hand in hand with a flurry of designs :) Had lots of creative freedom at this point, and I went with a modular weapon/shield for the marines in this piece. It can have components swapped out in/on a large robust carrier frame.

Visually, conventional arms proportions felt small to me on the battlesuits at the time.

Ok, so i just really had the most fun painting the 'death from above' nutcase at the far right :p You can tell he's having fun too. He's not even paying attention to his officer leading the charge!

I like the designs for those guys :D Are they robots, or just guys in heavy armor?

Hi! I have been doing this for about 10 years now.. thank you :) I think its more important that you understand basic fundamental theory, skills..before progressing to 'finding your style'. I saw your horror piece, its a great start!
