A Human Moment by AndrewDobell A Human Moment by AndrewDobell
A Blood Angels Marine shares a human moment with a fleeing mother and her daughter.

A new Artwork for you all. This is a portfolio peice thats taken a while to finish between other things.
I'm quite pleased with this, the lighting being great fun to mess with.

I wanted to show that a Space marine is meant to be something like 9 foot tall after all the genetic manipulation that have, so putting one next to a normal human mother and her daughter really brought that comparison home.

I liked drawing the little space marine plush toy the girl has in her hand. Kind of a nice little story there as the girl, who's been playing with her teddy, final meets the real thing and is awe struck by it.

Enjoy

EDIT: Wow, thanks for the DD and all the lovely comments. Really appreciate them. Thank you!

EDIT 2: Worked on the woman a little more to improve her Proportions. Not perfect, but better.

EDIT 3: NOW AVAILABLE AS A PRINT.


Had a lot of really cool comments about this Image, which I really, really appreciate.
Now, if only someone would rave about it to Games Workshop! Hint...!

OH MY EMPEROR!, is like: "We fear our own shield". Many times, I wish to see a daily perspective of the Warhammer 40K world, but you know, "IN THE GRIM DARKNESS OF THE FAR FUTURE THERE IS ONLY WAR".

Fuckin Brilliant man, this brings out a side of the Space Marines I have never seen in artwork and indeed a side most of the marine chapters themselves seem to forget in fluff :p Truly Impressive

Sons of Sanguinius. Heroes has come.

"-You are so big- girl said- you are Space Marine? You came to save us?- little girl asked
-Yes girl, Emperor send us- he answered- I shall take back your home."

230cm <- Space Marine
160-170cm <- human woman

bloody awesome, men XD

Interesting concept. You don't often see that kind of depht in warhammer 40k art. You should do another one like that.
