Eldar Autarch by warp-zero Eldar Autarch by warp-zero
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. :)

Thanks. Glad you like the Autarch.

Photoshop always comes out with different versions. I'm currently using Photoshop CS2. I usually work in pencil first, then scan the drawing in using a scanner. After that I just color it in Photoshop. Long ago, I used to use a mouse while coloring, but now I use a Cintiq.
