Space Marines by KaanaMoonshadow Space Marines by KaanaMoonshadow
Just playing with some new toys. :D

Wanted to do something Sci-Fi again, and went for kind-of a battle scene this time. It's a bit of an experiment, so any thoughts and comments would be most welcome! :cuddle:


Background image used with courtesy of :iconmainbearing: :blackrose: [link] - thank you, dear! :aww:

Made in Poser 7

A dark tensed piece with great attention point. I love the setting and work on the reflection. Great posing too adds a lot of perspective.

I agree with a lot of the positives I've read so far. The angle is great. The sky reinforces the perspective. There is definite drama and tension in the scene. That's put together very well.

However, I feel like that he highlights on the masked soldiers lens is really strong. My attention is drawn there before anything else.

Many thanks for your comment, Ted! :hug:

I see what you mean about the mask - I liked it that way, but maybe it's a bit much. I'll keep it in mind for future Space Marine projects. :nod:

its almost a bit too dark for my taste, but I love the perspektive and the way you use Photos for the sky!
and the fire in this pic looks pretty cool too :)

Id just wished it wasn't so dark...

Yes, me and my dark renders. :blush:

I know what you mean, but the lighting had to match the sky, so... but I'm glad that you like my fire. :cuddle:

Those guys look like the space marines from DOOM or from 'Starship troopers' (eh, that movie with the god-awful 'Bugs' that get blasted each and every time...). Good job on this one! You sure made a career out of surprising me... :giggle:

:+fav:ed with the speed of light! (and a few bullet-holes for good luck)

Oh my, I simply LOVE 'Aliens'! It's my favourite movie ever... Especially the part where Hicks (Michael Biehn, I shall forever adore you :giggle:) pokes his head through the ceiling and sees dozens of aliens coming... But I try not to watch the Alien movies too much since they make me fearful in dark rooms. :blush:

W00t! Space Marines! Awesome! :) Love the camera angle, and the way the light from that little patch of clear sky hits the guy. Now why did he lose his helmet in combat?

Very cool, Kaana. Though to me the guy at the bottom left looks like a SPARTAN wannabe :) Yes I've played far to much Halo :D

I officially announce that I have a big problem with muscled men -.- and muscled men with long hair, bare chest and jeans. AND muscled men with dark skin, black hair, green or red eyes, bare chest and jeans.

Michelle: ME TOO!! :giggle:


(and my BF is really thin though xDDD)

Ah, well - my husband doesn't look exactly like Bishop, either. :giggle:

But it's his character that really counts, and he's a real sweetheart, so - can live without such a body, really. :D
