This would be a cool legion of the damned knight for sure. I agree with B&K the aquilla in flame on the shoulder pad is pure awesome and they should have done that instead of the skull on the front.

The flames are awesome, the mould line down the gun barrel... not so much.

Only 9 points in and folk wanting to have a go about honest critisim! I think the painting is fantastic, the flames are stunningly but I disagree with @bitsandkits , I think the flames are darker at the top to show depth, which is a nice touch, do I like the flames no, not personally, do not like flames on cars bikes planes on anything, should I be flogged for this even though I appreciate and praise the skill involved, I think not.

This is Heresy not facebook, you dont just post stuff to get 'likes' then cry when when you do not, my painting is basic at best, and I will rarely offer painting advice due to my ability however I still put it up and take what people say on board, and people will critique you on your skill set. @NoHeresyOnlyTruth I think you are being unfairly critical of the posting, surely we need honest comment and critisism

I would agree about the reversed colors, if the artist was painting "real" fire. Since the figure isn't actually burning, and the flames are just decorations painted on the hull of the machine I can excuse the coloring. Besides, having the lighter color at the edge helps increase the definition of the flames and their definition against the black hull plates.

I'm sorry is the fact that I stated that something being against my personal taste but yet still technically awesome offending you? Re-read what I posted, I said it was technically PHENOMENAL. Personally it isn't painted in a scheme that I like, many other people do but not me, that's my personal taste and is not a criticism in any way shape or form because I'm not arrogant to believe that my taste is the be all and end all of all things good. If you look through my own project logs you will see I am very clear about that, in fact if you look through those logs you will not be surprised to see that what this artist has done to the Knight isn't my cup of tea. Also if I could paint to that level I probably still wouldn't do a Walker covered in flames because I don't personally like it, so my "criticism" as you put it isn't out of jealousy.

Saying something isn't my personal taste isn't an insult or a critique, it's simply saying that it doesn't push my personal buttons. You can admire something for it's technical skill without it being something you would want to own or something you would do yourself. Grow up and learn the difference. Personally I think that's actually more of a compliment, it shows that what you have done is of high enough quality that it can be admired regardless of personal taste.

From now on I'll try to simply blow smoke up peoples asses and only if they what they do is 100% my taste and I would encourage everybody else to do the same. That's sure to get everybody back posting in a heartbeat. From now on don't expect me to comment on anything unless it's Minotaurs related.

Would that make you feel better cupcake?

Actually, that's not the case.

Looks like a damn good example of true flame technique to me.

I hope to do as well when I get around to painting my restor-rod.

Strange, but not a Stranger.

The flame technique is spot on, especially considering it's on an almost black background. The contrast makes them stand out extremely well.

In regards to critique, half the reason people should be posting is to receive feedback so they can improve their techniques. People who post and only want positive reviews might as well not post at all. Same goes for fics and homebrew fluff and rules. It's a discussion forum, and it's not a discussion if everyone just agrees.
