Adepta Sororitas by James-S-Flynn Adepta Sororitas by James-S-Flynn
Sister of Battle, Warhammer 40k.

60+ hours. (I've lost count.)
Paint Tool SAI (primary)
Photoshop CS-4 (image balancing, textures and background)
Wacom Intuos III

This is probably one of the most involved images I have ever created. I have spent some long hours obsessing, painting, repainting over this thing. I love the Sisters of Battle, and I love the Grey Knights, so I decided to merge their armor a little and see what happened. This image is the result. There was a lot of time spent squinting at my Grey Knights miniatures.

Full view, please, there are lots of little details in the armor.

It looks really great. Still can't get it how thing like this can be done on a computer.

Well, you need to have a tablet and an understanding of how Photoshop works with layer modes and stuff. ^^ And mostly, you just practice a lot and spend lots and lots of time looking at armor!

nice one, but the sword needs to be longer and the handle shorter- better the sword leave the picture then look like a "twohanded shortsword" :D

This is pretty old. I've been meaning to go back in photoshop and tweak that but I'm lazy.

She's also wearing Grey Knight armor. ;)

Extremely well done, love the detail. However she isn't a Sororitas. She is wearing Grey Knight Armor, albeit female GK but GK none the less. That being said I love the attitude and the hair.

Very good! I liked the Grey Knight armor much better than the regular Sister of Battle armor.

Unfortunately, there are no female Grey Knights that I know of, so... >_>

Thank you very much for the compliments. :)

she is the first of a new round of initiates. she proved that she can hack it with the boys but could not receive the gene enhancements like the other grey knights as it is not designed for females. Her rage more than makes up for it though.
