GMM SHOWCASE: Sistine Sisters, Warlord Titan Freehand



We take a closer look at a recent commission of a Warlord and Reaver, going more in depth with the freehand on the Warlord.

The goal, when I sat down and spoke with the customer, was to go all out and make something in gratuitous celebration of the Imperium.  I took a big folder of his favorite art he collected and arranged them in freehand across the model keeping an eye on composition both in terms of art fitting the frames and color.

Thanks for dropping by, and see you for the last and final part – the Reaver.

~This is absolute INSANITY! I have no words…

  • Valeli

    Not necessarily how I’d want to paint up my titan, if I ever got one.

    … but wow. Crazy skilled painting. Amazing stuff.

  • Satyan Patel

    I don’t exactly have words for this. I’m really blown away by the artist’s skills.

  • daggitkiller

    If you’re going to paint a model that big, at least put some time into it…

  • ZeeLobby

    Skill def A+++ . Still not sure how I feel about rainbow palette.

  • Ebsolom

    Brilliant!!! I wouldn’t mind my Black Legion, Tyranids or Eldar armies crushed by this beautiful behemoth. Stunning work 🙂

  • Bran D

    They must never use it. No battle damage on those paint jobs.

  • Badgerboy1977

    Beautiful freehand and painting in general, the overall effect though is far too busy for me but there’s no denying the skill involved.

  • Iconoc1ast
  • Jason75

    If only I could paint so well. Wow.

  • euansmith

    The skills displayed here are totally ludicrous; jaw-dropping. The overall effect is maybe a little less than the sum of its parts, but, still, mind-boggling stuff. If I had been the client, I might have asked for the artwork to all be converted to a cohesive, monotone or limited palette. Still, though, it is a marvel and a wonder to behold. Oh, and that marble… lovely.

    • Nvision

      This. It’s incredibly impressive freehand work, but because there’s so much of it, it becomes a busy blur. Being more selective with which panels to illustrate, while supporting those panels with a more cohesive colour scheme would give them more impact. Structural details of the model are getting lost in the detail of the illustration, and vice versa.

      • euansmith

        Yeah, I guess that the actual Sistine Chaple has three things going for it; a cohesive structure, a coherent palette and Michelangelo.

    • Jake

      i agree but i also dont think pictures do it justice.

      • euansmith

        Probably not, but then, in real life, my poor eyesight probably wouldn’t be much better 😉

        • Jake

          thinking about the subject nature of the painting, would you think an imperator titan being a more appropriate canvas for such glorious scenes?

  • NagaBaboon

    I…I..don’t really know what to say….

  • OldHat

    I will echo the sentiment of others. Incredible work, but not my cup of tea.
