The Hoplite by osksta The Hoplite by osksta
I wanted to do a way more studioish painting this time; Mostly to clense my soul from the ugly texturing in the last picture, but also out of inspiration from the many left 4 dead contest contributions seen around this place. So if i werent way to late, this would have been my contribution.

I wanted to draw a survivor with a swedish police riot shield first, but since i couldnt find any photos of one, i came ut with the car door instead. I needed to give him some fancy spear, and since i had already done the knife-taped-to-a-broomstick thing before, i asked my littlebrother for idéas, and he came up with the pipe ting.

I tried out a for me new technique in this image, of witch i am very satisfied. I drew first a simple sketch, in black on white; then i added simple colours in a layer set behind the sketch; and finally i drew a rendering layer set on top of all. The process can be found here [link] , i mainly uploaded it to make it easier for whoever would like to advise and/or criticise me.

Just think how FREAKING AWESOME it would be to block a smoker's tongue, then ram the spear through it's head. Or fighting a tank holpite style! :D

Zombietai Hoplitai, anyone?

Seriously, perhaps one row of this can hold the undead back even better than Leonidas at Thermopylae...

Faved for magnificent creativity!

well yes, I think so; It has all the qualities of your favourite riot shield, but can be found anywhere!
