Sturmmacht by ukitakumuki Sturmmacht by ukitakumuki
Hi again, all.

Am trying to get more daily practice in, and yes, I'm still in my pseudo-fantasy phase atm, still exploring while it lasts. I'm sure I'll come to my senses soon enough. :D This one started out as a speedie and I called it quits 3 hours in.

As a sidenote I really want to try out this software ArtRage that some of the guys here have been using- it looks very fun and intuitive, especially with the dynamic colour blending/analogue painting simulation- a "Painter Lite", so it seems. Will post my feeble attempts when I get round to it!

I'm dying to see what you've done with artrage. I can't seem to render anything decent out of it, it seems just to be a simulation of a medium that really doesn't give you the best control, always smearing and demanding too much time. I just like to use it to give that slick TM brush look to things painted in photoshop.

These dark horsemen, along with an army of shadowy, fierce soldiers at their command, look like a force to be reckoned with, and to be feared. One horseman, with a faceless horned helmet riding on a soulless steed whose eyes burn with an orange blaze, seems to look upon a doomed army, and sealed their fate with his gaze.

The looming castles, towers, and fortresses are a nice touch as well. The dark army has been unleashed from the dark lands, whose skies know only the shade of gray. Good work. :D

as always, this is awesome. your imagination is matched only by your artistic madskills.

i personally always enjoy reading the little stories you write with your entries. they give them more life than the average sci fi/fantasy fare. i was wondering what your inspiration was for the horses?
