Default GW artists getting lazy?

Does anyone else think these pictures look similar?



Both have four people looking at a glowing sphere

Both have three people left of the sphere and one on the right

That can't be a coincidence surely

You cant really see the pictures to be honest, though I know the second one because of the month or so it was my desktop background.

But, from what I can see, the second one has FAR more detail than the first.

o.O That is...odd. I don't think they could use a computer to edit all that though...

If it was done on photoshop then yeah they would have used the beginning sketch,

Or it's the same artist :P

I always figured the two were done similiar on purpose. As a way to highlight the similiarities between Tau and humans.

In the Imperial one, they're looking at Eldar titans.

The Tau one seems to be a kind of parody, that's what I thought when I saw it.
