Grey Knight WIP by saint-max Grey Knight WIP by saint-max
Greetings all
loved to share the Grey Knight painting that i am working on now. this is suppose to be my attempt into more action / more dynamic scenery.
next is adding colors to the painting, and a lot more details.... mostly polishing.
will put more time into finalizing the background... love the Slaanesh demon planet >_<

hope u like it
c&c are more than welcome

Hmmm my process didn't change that much, but maybe I just got more organized.
Hope you like it :D

Yes yes I remember such a thing,
sadly this was done long before the First Heretic :(  it would've helped in the inspiration process :D

Absolutely amazing. Love everything about it. Seen a video on YouTube where someone painted both the Knight and daemon on the top of two rhino's. Was hoping to find the original since I saw the video.

More than liked it. As a grey knight player I love seeing what the chapter stands for in a style that fits them. Could imagine this as a banner in some great hall on Titan. All the knights preparing for their next battle under the depiction of one of their brothers locked in mortal combat.

OMG this is amazing mate. I dont know what else to say other than please continue your blessed work. May the emperor protect. I love the Grey knights other than the underhanded tactics that the Inquisition takes to keep them secret.

Yeah the Grey Knights has their own special mood, they do stand out among the other Chaos fighters

The pose of the greyknight itself already makes the entire painting to look dynamic, the fact of him being alone in a daemon planet trapped with the only option being fight to survive adds some drama to the scene. The best of all is the detail not only of the fire and shadows but also of the background that shows how much a planet can suffer from chaos infestation.

Really good job.

Yes although I personally like the pose in this piece, but I had to redraw the whole thing to fit it on a cover size document.
I enjoyed painting the background, I think there is a lot to explore in terms of Chaos worlds/planets :D

Oh well i got a lot of art books, digital illustration and the collection of Marko's art. but you will be able to find most of Adi's art on his website :D
