haven'T heard of that yet, where did you get that ? I'M not sure what to think about the way GW handles their warhammer franchise, I'm afraid I won't be happy with the way it'S heading...

I can imagine how hard it is to come upon an idea and make a super hit out of it. Taking a look at your sketches and other works of art, it occurs to me that you are gifted at finding just those poses that bring out extra depth in your works. Especially the expressions of their faces and eyes.

Keep it up! Its very rewarding and inspiring to look upon! :)

well its not only hard to come up with new interesting poses its much harder to build a scene around it ^^ if I'm not super excited about the picture, im not going to make something out of it. 

I hope to produce a whole lot more work thats worth looking at ^^
thanks a lot for your words, much appreciated and motivating to keep going

Man sieht sich vielleicht wieder öfter hier. Meine 14 Jährige Zeichenschülerin postet fleißig ihre ersten Errungenschaften und freut sich über Feedback. Da hab ich gedacht ich könnt auch mal wieder was posten. Auch wenn ich seit einiger Zeit nicht mehr am Zeichnen war.

Best Sororitas drawing i've seen to be honest. Reminds me of Saint Sabbat due to her dark hair instead of white.

It is interesting, because before the stopped hosting GamesDay on the east cost of the US,  they stopped allowing for digital submissions, and you had to make your art on site.

Seriously amazing pic.  The pose is seriously remniscent of one of the pages of the old Rulebook...  The one detailing the Age of Apostasy or somesuch.  Sororitas chick in full armor, one leg resting on a skull, holding bolter and chainsword.  I like yours better, though ^_^

M1keN Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
hehe thank you :) well it was the first pose that came to my mind after I had done her face, but it's more coincidence that it looks like one of the illustration in the book, but looking now through it, I see it too, you mean the black and white one whre she stands on adead body and she'S holding two bolt pistols ? at least I think that looks familiar and its pretty cool xD cant decide which one looks better, though I do tend to like pictures done by others more than my own ^^

AielloA Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Is it two bolt pistols?  It might be, I honestly can't remember ^_^  Still, like I said, I prefer yours cause it's less line-art-y and more realistic.  Here's hoping the next release is SoB so that I can start collecting them (I've wanted to get a Sororitas army for a while now, but I hate metal minis with a passion, they're just so damned hard to work with)

:iconm1ken:
M1keN Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Don't know if you even meant that one, could also be the cover picture but I've definitly seen better artworks ^^ they need new models, I'm waiting for a new release aswell, but doen'T seem like it will happen soon, next might be a little chaos update, imps and orks, maybe with the new weekly release model they will squeeze them somewhere. I would soo love to see new models, the old ones had so ugly faces...

:iconaielloa:
AielloA Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I know, right?  The only SoB face I could stand was the Heavy Flamer one with the bad-ass gas-mask...  But yeah.  SoBs are waaay overdue for a new line, AFAIK they're the only pure-metal army still in use, since the Grey Knights got plastickified.

Also, GW seems to be getting better at doing female models now (compare Valkia the Bloody to Female Adventurer in Power Armor, for example...), so when the new SoBs come out, they should look suitably awesome ^_^

M1keN Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
they better be awesome, and i hope they will be sometime soon ^^ I still have that heavy flamer model here because i loved it, this and one other model where I replaced the head with a better one... as soon as they bring out new ones I'll start a new army

Just...  If they don't make plastic Sororitas, I think I might cry.

Probably "Heresy" as opposed to tears, but it's the thought that counts :P  Seriously.  For a Gothic-inspired setting (I mean, have you SEEN the Basilica Administratum!?), WH40k is seriously lacking in dark-armored religious extremist knight-figures.

definitly! :D they just have to, everywhere I read somethign about sisters so many people comment on how badly they want new plastic models, they can'T ignore that and they have to see how much money they would made with those.

I have to draw somethign sob related again..
