Citizen Redux by NicklausofKrieg Citizen Redux by NicklausofKrieg
i tried drawing normal people the other day and this is what came out
this is pretty much a redraw of an old drawing of imperial citizens i did back in 'o9 but never really got to posting here

and also the background and signpost is 100% photoshop work which explains why it's kinda wonky

I don't see the wonky. The effects work nicely; like that arid desert feel. A good touch really, and I love the tank sign.

As far as backgrounds go, it works quite well. I'd assume the 'wonky' factor was a part of the heat's mirage like effects. Kudos on the clothing all looking very warm climate appropriate by the way. :)

yeah not only did i want a mirage feel i also wanted to make it look like there are some dusty winds blowing and i used oranges and reds since it's a mining world rich in metals like Mars

and also i used that eraser sculpting technique you mentioned a couple of times for the background

Noice. Hope it helped some. I've heard it's quite frustrating at first. I know it required some reverse thinking on my part.

But why would an eldar try to infiltrate human society?
If she is going to an academy then maybe they have an artifact that can only retrieved through covert means.

Of course I will leave the Eldar alone, I am too curious about her intentions to ruin her disguise.
Now if you excuse me, I must go make a conspiracy theory pin-up board....

Normal imperial Citizens, while war i suppose?

From left to right
I love the blue helmet ^^
Is this a real mouse!? Oo Wouldn't it swing around and always hit her legs? (it would be annoying for me)
Normal guy. Nothing special. Only the bandages are interesting.
I like that girl.^^ Her hairs and face + the T-shirt and the short trousers are just perfect in combination!
The implant was a good idea for making him strange and interesting.

You drawed much pictures about the Deathkorp of Krieg. So i ask you, are the two persons in the right Deathkorp of Krieg or for what are these skull symbols?

Anyway very cool and interesting picture. (Very good work ^^)

no there's no war there right now but there was one just a few years ago the story here is that after the war most of planet(a mining world) was ravaged and mostly forgotten the only bit of infrastructure that was rebuilt after the war was just the mines leaving much of the dwindled population to live in the old city ruins or makeshift settlements they had to make themselves

this series of drawings i'm planning is going to portray the lives of these kids in their rather unsupervised post-war world

that mouse is actually attached to the first girl's dataslate

and two to the right aren't kriegers (skulls are just a common imperial icon) the girl is or "was" a Schola student before schola was destroyed during the war while the guy with the bionic eye was a whiteshield guardsman
