Space Marine Illustration

This is a drawing of a Space Marine. Done in a old-school 2000ad style with hatching and plenty of black. I love the bloke's face, I'm really pleased with his expression and an the stark style of his armour. I didn't want him to look tool robotic or mecha so I added the leather belts across his chest.

I've never played any Warhammer games, but I was really into the lead figures when I played Dungeons and Dragons in my youth. I was a bit of a star when it came to painting them. I've still got my best ones in the wardrobe.

The drawing and inking only took an hour or so. I did it A5 size. The colour and shading was added in GiMP.
