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.

That's cute and awesome at the same time. There should be more art like this. Thinking of the childen. It'd be awesome to think of this from one of the xeno's point of view.
