Like all of your works, I am astonished by the level of detail that has gone into the shading and pencil work. What is really wonderful here is the different shadows and the lightplay at work with evey individual dip and surface. I can't even begin to imagine how much work that must have taken. I also enjoy the juxtaposition you have with all of these hard, metallic angles and then the person who is in the center with soft angles, almost overwhelmed by it all. Phew!
Overall I am very satisfied with the bottom two-thirds of this piece. However, I feel that the top third (especially the helment area) is a bit lacking. The details are almost obscured or blurred to the point of becoming a big mass without differences in light or shade. I would like to see some more work done in that area, especially right behind the person's head. That big "hand" sticking out of the back also throws me off some. It stands out a lot compared to the big "mass: of metal and detail and everything else. What is its purpose?
One more thing I am wondering about- what is he looking at? I am a little confused as to whether he's looking down or slightly down but forward. I think there is a level of pensiveness in his expression which makes me wonder...
Words can't describe how awesome this piece, as well as all of your work, is. You have so much talent and patience to be able to produce a piece as detailed and awesome as this! I'm a huge fan of Warhammer as well!

Beautiful work, I've always been so impressed by people who can take inert graphite wrapped in wood and make something this smooth and precise out of it. Reminds me a lot of 's work. Now I gotta go through your gallery. This is a wonderful continuation and tribute to a wonderful piece.
you two are both very talented pencil artists that love the 40k genre, so its not surprising. There's still a difference between the different styles, but its close, its like getting twice the amount of skill, its nice
