King Tiger by woutart King Tiger by woutart
Panzerkampfwagen VI Ausführung B, Sd. Kfz. 182
aka Tiger II or Königstiger.


It's been in the making for a while, mostly because I wanted to get it right. I googled the crap out of, well, Google :) I tried about four or five different poses. This one, though not using the most exciting perspective, seemed to portay it best. Used a lot of reference, but finally used an awesome piece of 3d modelling as reference. I can't seem to find it right now cause I'd like to credit the maker of that great model. I'll put up the link asap, it's here on DA too. So if any of you find it before I do, please send me the link, hope it's still up.

It's not 100% accurate, but it depicts what I wanted it to. Awesome, forward thinking design, powerfull and intimidating. Let's all be thankfull it came too late in the war.

Made this for a good friend of mine. Intended for his birthday (29 April), hence the tank's number.

I'm glad it's done. Painting that Zimmerit-armour was a b*tch :)

Hope you enjoy!

EDIT: Found the ref here on DA, check it out, awesome model [link]

So awesome! Excellent work! 

Maybe a winter camo would have been interesting, though.

A true beast of prey - Mechanically unreliable, but unbeatable in the front!

Excellent art of one of my favourite panzers!

What graphic tablet do you use?
woutart Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013

I've been researching a lot about the digital tablets and I guess intous 3 will a worthy buy! What do you suggest?

The intuos range is maybe a bit more pricy but worth it. They are at the number 5 series now. But as example, mine are from 2005 and still going strong (both at home and in the workspace). It's a solid investment in my experience. A great tool.
