Requested by Hammaneggs, this is the KV-4 as it is seen in World of Tanks. This drawing is strictly based off of as it is seen in WoT, I decided to stick with it... but of course if you plan on drawing up your own KV-4, it's definitely something you can take a more libertarian approach on.

 

Believe it or not, this is actually how the KV-4 hull looks when it's bare. Looks like a bus... but that's it. Drawing it up really was a cinch, as it is just a supersized KV hull.

Here I started on the road wheels. Quite tough actually to scale them right... with 8 road wheels it's a lot to look out for... a tad bit time consuming. But since the FOV is not that harsh on this drawing, copy/pasting and skewing still made it look good.

After detailing the running gear, I got started on the turret. This is the upgraded turret I'm drawing here, and not the "KV-3-esque" stock turret. It's quite a lot easier to draw this turret too... and it suits the tank better in my opinion as well. I also did the fins for the track guards and the storage box towards the middle.

Did some hull details and details on the turret... including the rangefinder sights for both the main gun and the small one on top. Speaking of the gun... I don't know if you guys know how ridiculously long the ZiS-24 is in the game in comparison to the KV-4, but it's clown-car long. Panther L100 long. So as for our common issue of the gun poking the side of the canvas... yeeeeeeaaaaaah.

 

Let's just skip the gun for now.

Welp, here's the running gear/suspension done and some other clean-ups elsewhere. The tank is shaping up very nicely now.

 

And here we have the final image. So... to fit the gun... I just stretched the canvas from the original 1400x1050 to 1920x1080, and made it an HD wallpaper. The tank is exactly the SAME SIZE, pixel for pixel, and has not been upscaled between the canvas resizes. It was all JUST to fit the gun. And as you can see, it barely does.

 

I just gave it some fail shading, an Obj. 224 decal and stripe, and called it a day. I also added the two tow-hooks since I forgot about those. But yep, there's our KV-4! Hope it was a joy for some to see, and hope it helps if you plan on pursuing it yourself (the KV tanks aren't much of a challenge to draw).

Hope the weekend 5x is treating you alright. Got 9k experience on my second E-50 battle ever... absolutely loving that tank.

Can you do the M46 Patton or T110E5? I'd love to see those.

 

And thanks for another great drawing!

Dang that is awesome!

How 'bout that IS-3? I could never picture the front part that blends in with the spaced armor in my head...

I guess I'll have to add the Patton, E-25, IS-3, and the Leo to my request list... heh. Dang.
