Raging Carcharodons by Bobot073 Raging Carcharodons by Bobot073
The genesis of this illustration started when it was pointed out many of the recent images I had done were of Astartes primarily engaged in ranged combat instead of GLORIOUS MELEE COMBAAATTT. 

So to rectify that I had drawn up a sketch of two loyalist marines busting through a wall, pushing another traitor astartes away in the process. It stayed as a sketch for a long period of time, until I saw the "Red Tithe" Cover done by DiegoGisbertLlorens. I really liked the use of pink and blue, so decided to apply those colours to the melee sketch I had lying around. Also the decision to make the traitor astartes a Nightlord was 100% inspired by the conflict depicted on the Cover.

The result turned out far more saturated than the piece it was inspired by, but overall I would say it was a successful image. 

As with the "Find Them" image I had posted earlier, I had gone with using textured/dual-brush brushes while painting. They help add a level of noise evenly across the entire image, as opposed to blotches of it scattered around the painting during the weathering phase.

All in all, it was a fun image to paint!

Love this piece and your style in general, but just have to offer a bit of constructive criticism - the Carcharodon's knee seems to be a bit off. It being center stage, it seems to be somewhat distracting, a bit too round and prominent. At least it seems to me :)
Other that that, great composition, very dynamic and light is very, very interesting!

Thank you for the constructive criticism and kind words! I can see see what you mean with that knee! I am not entirely sure how to make it less prominent looking, but I will try a few edits and see what sticks.

Haven't thought of it, no. Are you referring to the old Rogue Trader or the newly announced Rogue Trader?

Old Rogue Trader with the bascinet helms. Maybe I should start calling it oldhammer to distinguish the two.
