Stand Your Ground by VulnePro Stand Your Ground by VulnePro
It's been awhile since I did one of these straight to Wacom paintings (scenes not concept illos like FOILs) so it's nice to belt one out again.

This started as a speed paint doodle that ended up getting more fun, involved, and polished as I went. I've been wanting to do more stuff like 'As it Falls' so with this one in the can I hope to do more. No thumbnail rough or base illo on this one, just flat out painting and riffing the design as I went. This one went pretty quickly too, a few days working on it off and on.

Depicted here is a Dies combat Taedus blasting away at something off frame with a Dies electro cap Stein Shettier (case-less rounds). Sendai are typically human size or smaller so this guy's about 5 feet tall at best. Not a big fella at all. This is somewhere on Polemos during the time "The Hammer Falls" event occurs. This guy is a free sendai and has apparently added some sponsor logos on his armor indicating he's modded himself.

The logos say as follows:

Dies T.D.S. Myrmidon Taedus System (his parent manufacturer birthplace)
Dyna Lock
BESH Dampers
Classel Armor (armor metalized paint that does tend to chip. The sendai has hardened ceramic armor, hence the grayish under color)

Had a blast with this one :) More to come...

Photoshop CS3 and Wacom Intous 9x12

Just an added note: No 3D was used, it's all by hand, same goes for all the FOILs and Theos concepts in the gallery. I've had some folks think some of these pieces used 3D, but none have, so I take that as a nice compliment as to how well they come off.
