Arcanist - Retribution Solo by cwalton73 Arcanist - Retribution Solo by cwalton73
An illustration I did for the latest Warmachine book, Forces of Warmachine:The Retribution of Scyrah.

This guy is the Arcanist - basically a combat mechanic who keeps the mighty Myrmidon fighting machines working. I really enjoy the image of him taking five, smoking a cigarette and downing a hot cup a joe before getting back to work. An elf who works for a living.

It doesn't matter if you're a three hundred year old elf working on a magic-powered warmachine in a fantasy world. . . if you're a mechanic, you've got a cigarette and a mug of coffee.

Fantastic piece, the little touches of "real", the coffee, the smoke, make this piece so strong. Awesome job.

I do like many of the pictures and how they're "Elves, the IK-way" being that there's the ones with the bandages and the dirt and smoking and all this other sort of stuff you almost never seem to see with elves, who are traditionally prim and proper and stuff like that.
Very nice work, as always.

I think the working hands on elves keeps the concept new and interesting. Just like trolls, Ogres, and Dwarves, Im enjoying Privateer's take on Elves.

And of course your artwork of it.

Very sweet man, the shadows are phenomenal, it looks very three-dimensional.

Only crit is that I'd go a little heavier on the bounce light; especially on the metals.

What kind of liquid is in his cup? Looks like the guy stopped for a tea during his work. ))

I think all mechanics, whatever their race or species, are the same at heart. I like this fellow a lot. :D

Can't expect anyone to work without a cup of joe.

I like it man. The disgruntled look on his face is priceless. "Damn warcasters." I can here him saying it in my head.

I particularly adore that, just like every other mechanic in this game, he has his own form of 'over-sized wrench'. Kee kee. ^_^

Nice take on things with the break pose though.

I really like the way this guy is dressed. The long coat and the high collar is a cool design. Also, the tool he's carrying looks like the Iosan equivalent to a Swiss Army knife. :nod:

Wow, the mech looks awesome. And the guy reminds me of a future military Caption Kangaroo, Lol.:la:

All in all this is a very good piece.
