Starcraft 2: Ghost vs Spectre by Tabnir Starcraft 2: Ghost vs Spectre by Tabnir
#100

It's been a while since I've done fanart. I usually don't do fanart because I'm not fanatical? Haha.

My friend told me I should enter this one SC2 art competition. I was resistant at first, but he used the "you could use more practice" argument on me and it was super effective!

I thought I'd test out my patience this time. Usually I slap down all my stuff in one sitting, but I took some time on this one, about 15 hours over 3 days. I think, quality-wise, this is a pretty big leap from my previous works. Now all I have to do is improve on it.

So here's a Starcraft 2 Spectre slashing at a Ghost with some sort of psi-charged kukri. SC2 is pretty damn fun, except I feel guilty when I play because the time could have been put into art. Got the best of both worlds this time, I guess!

PS4, many small studies done before painting but no direct refs.

I forgot, thanks :iconzeo-x:, :icon3xc355: and :icondasadam: for their insights and criticisms along the way.

---------------------------------------------------------

Can't bear to look at my previous works now.

---------------------------------------------------------

Edit: DD, wow. I'm honored; thanks everyone! Let's all keep producing and improving.

---------------------------------------------------------

It had been my intention to use this piece to write a process/walkthrough, and here it is:
