Eldar Shrike Bomber finished by Addinarr Eldar Shrike Bomber finished by Addinarr
It's funny where a tiny 2.5 by 3.5 little doodle on a piece of scrap paper can take you....

Ok, I'm pretty sure I don't want to work on this anymore.

Edit:Sept 23: minor fixes. Sharper background.

Gorgeous. Love the sails - that's what they should look like, not actual sails damn it!

I agree, the Eldar sails are more like fins.  This is perfectly portrayed in this art.  Love it!

I must say this is one of the best pieces of 40k artwork I've seen, you should push yourself and do a Battlefleet Gothic style fight, maybe against dark eldar. Just a suggestion, I'd love to see it, and it would push the boundaries of awesome :D
