The Battle of Evermore by NicolasRGiacondino The Battle of Evermore by NicolasRGiacondino
This is a MONSTERpiece

:D

It measures exactly an A3 sized canvas, which is way bigger than I usually handle. My biggest venture has always been A4, so you go figure...

This work took me exactly 4 days to complete, but I'm proud of how it came out. I wanted to quit a couple of times, but just kept going, uncovering more and more of the colours and shades that brought it here before you.

The characters and the overall setting were the client's choice, based upon a much remembered game he and his friends played, in which his two Captains (the Salamander and Ultramarine respectively) obliterated the Ork Warboss Krabs and his "ride", the sweet "Matilda" :D
Of course, by the time they got to him, he'd already disposed of a Grey Knights Dreadnought (which you see in the back).

So, lots of detail and not much more for me to say here... just a BIG piece of work that i hope you like!

Nic.-

PS.. Hit download for the 2000 pixels wide version.

Fantastic as always! I have to say though, I think this is one of the few pieces done by you, if any at all, that has an Ultramarine in it. No love for the boys in blue? :( (just kidding :D)

It certainly is an epic piece of work, there's so much happening in it, but it's not over powering. I really like the sense of drama and action in the piece.

You seriously need to be hired by GW to draw artwork in their handbooks, this surpasses a majority of the art they have in there!

Such awesome detail in the angles and layout, ORKS WILL WINZ!

Really cool pic. It's cool to see someone drawing two chapters working together against a common threat. Usually if you see two chapters, it's Space Wolves and Dark Angels and they're beating the crap out each other

Sweet goodness! Y'know, Nic, it's pics like these of yours that got me to take my trad-work seriously.

I really like how you manage to keep up with the current fluff, despite your busy schedule. You certainly haven't missed that Salamanders are now a chapter full of pissed-off Samuel L Jacksons.
Imagine Chap. master Tu'shan going: "I said, does he look like a bitch?"
