This thread is for work on the Dark Elf Warrior for the Heresy-Online Fantasy Army Painter.

Work In Progress pictures are encouraged as it will allow feedback from other artists and visitors to the project forum. Signatures on pictures may be included, but please make sure they are in white space to allow them to be moved around the picture as necessary during computer reworking of the image.

A brief note for artists: All artwork will require re-touching and some editing for symmetry, etc, before it can be used in the final product. This is not a negative comment on the original artwork, it is just part of the process, so please don't be upset when someone adapts your artwork (within the constraints of this project obviously). Anything submitted here is assumed to be work towards this project so in effect you have given the project team permission to work with it. We have no intention of stealing artwork, and it will only be used for this project unless further permission is granted. All credit will be given in the final project, even for concept sketches. Any questions, pm me and I will try to answer them as best I can.

References pictures gathered so far (artists are noted in the original thread if known):



Many thanks to Syph for allowing us to use the following:

thanks for the kind words guys... I'll get more done soon hopefully.

I am a little surprised you weren't tempted to make this one a lady, what with one of Syph's models above being of the aforementioned female type. :wink: Only messing though it is a great model again.
Hehe... when I started it was a girl but I re-did the picture when I realised that a male body would be a easier one to apply shading to at a later date. Plus it would have to look a lot less like the original model... to do even quite similar would have resulted in well... not very Elven looking breasts. :laugh:

I shall find a way to do a girl somewhere in there!!! :victory:

I'm going to have a go at chopping this up later after work. I'll post any results.

I've chopped the banner up into consituent parts; it needs neatening up however which may be beyond me (it's just the lines really need defining from their pencil/pen origins).

I'll post it up tonight when I've finished work.

Right, now I know what I'm doing (vectors!) I've scrapped the old banner I cut up and have since tried making the shield which I had a bit of success with. In the mean time, I've found an awesome Dark Elf font which would be great for runes to put on the shields -



Here are the best ones.

Made by a chap from Druchii.net. Didn't cost me anything to download, I'm sure they're freely available. In any case, they're all in the Army Books so I'm sure that once "vectorised" no one would know. The font is something like Drukh Eltharin - I just search for Dark Elf font and it popped up.
