This was actually a small sketch I did a while back. Just kinda fooling around actually. I've noticed that, although I play Warhammer 40,000, I have yet to put up any Warhammer art.
So, since I still needed practice on Photoshop, I scanned this in and colored it up.
I painted her the same color scheme as my Saim-Hann craftworld colors. In other words, the same colors I used to paint my miniatures with. Also seen in my gallery.
Currently, Games Workshop doesn't produce a female Autarch (its a leader character type) for their miniature line. But I always thought it would be cool if my army was led by some leggy space elf girl.
Anyone with me on this?
Y'know, you really can't buy two power swords for your Autarch...but whatever. The picture was originally a full body shot....but, I thought to crop it like this instead.
Also, the original sketch was really small. When I scanned it and was working all zoomed in, the face just didn't hold up. It was really off. So this is one of the first times where I just erased the whole face and re-drew it right in photoshop.
Heh heh, now that I look at it...she kind of reminds me of a blonde Sarah Douglas (Ursa from Superman II). Sort of. I don't know....whatever....
Hope you like it.
