Title: Empire Total War Grenadier
Name: Michael Kutsche
Country: Germany
Software: Painter, Photoshop

GameStar cover-artwork for the SEGA/ Creative Assembly game “Empire: Total War”. Completely done in Photoshop and Painter. I got some reference for the costume by CA’s art department. Used myself as a reference for the pose and face (I did some poses with a hoovertube:) ). Comments and Crits are welcome!

Yes, 5 stars! But I do think I see an inaccuracy…if you have ever watched a flintlock musket go off, there is a small burst of powder and smoke that ignites in the pan, then a split second later, the larger charge erupts from the front of the barrel. Both produce a great amount of smoke. But I do realize that this would obscure the face of the shooter. So I guess in this case it is a matter of license on the part of the artist so as to show the facial features…but still a most excellent image!

Hammer, einfach Hammer. Diskrepanzen hin oder her, es soll geil aussehen, und das tut es. :wink: Super Arbeit!

Schönen Gruß in die Hauptstadt

Wow… awesome job. And such a great project too! (do you play the total war series at all?) I saw it on the cover here http://www.creative-assembly.co.uk/products.html
It looks great! I can’t imagine my work being on the cover of something like that that will be seen by so many people! Though I guess you have a couple of things like that now:P
