It’s been a little while since I drew one of the Primarchs and Perturabo has been waiting ‘patiently’ for a while for his picture, so, here he is.
In all his wonderful Terminatory glory!!
I really enjoy drawing Space Marines and the Primarchs series, because I feel that I can really, really push myself and learn while I am doing the deed.
However, they do trigger all my ‘I am shit at everything’ feelings and I have more doubts that I can ‘do good’ while doing these more than any of my other art pieces. It’s most likely because I lack confidence with drawing both them and the backgrounds as well as the full illustration-y feel they have.
I just need to work through these thoughts until they become second nature – as a part of that I’ve been doing a few sketches in a sketchbook too. Really quick images to get more comfortable with the concept of them
I am thinking, maybe I should make this a ‘daily thing’ like a couple of two minute sketches a day until I am a lot happier drawing Space Marines whilst still keeping ‘my style’ of art with them. These sketches were all drawn really quickly too, so they aren’t going to eat into much of my other free time.
Might be something for regular viewers to look forward too as well?
I’m contemplating on taking most of my artwork down this route, even the anthro/firry stuff. More illustrations than quick pin-ups, but maybe there should be a good, clear divide. The Warhammer stuff for full illustration, furry for quicker stuff? Just some thoughts.
Either way, I hope you enjoy the arts~
Sometimes, the need to do something Warhammer 40k related takes over.
Alas, I am still very much caught in the ‘Pin-up’ trap!
Another suggestion that came from the land of twitter.
I am still very surprised at the reception my Pin up Space Marines have had over there – I’m glad that it has been overwhelmingly positive though, it gives me encouragement to keep doing them; and I really enjoy doing them. They’re different and they are what I enjoy drawing. Pin ups are awesome; even if everyone and their Mum can do it too~
No video with this one though, sorry. I honestly forgot about recording!
If you didn’t already know – you can support me on Patreon, where I take suggestions, requests and a whole host of other fun things!
For more information about this particular chapter head on over to Fishy Wargaming the owners of the Noctis Wardens.
I always enjoy drawing Space Marines cause they always provide such an interesting challenge – so if you want to throw one at me then please do as I love hearing your suggestions for these guys.
Just wanted to share a work in progress – I was asked to draw another Space Marine over on Twitter; well, to be more honest, I put out a call for suggestions/requests on Space Marine chapters to draw up – I enjoy drawing Home Brew chapters and it’s nice to give something to people.
Anyway, this guy is from the Noctis Warriors, owned by @GallandroX on Twitter.
I’ll share the finished piece when it’s done~
This is something that stems from Twitter!!
I enjoy drawing Pin-Ups and I enjoy drawing 40k stuff.
Why not combine the two?

And Abaddon himself, looking pretty pissed off about something or other.
These came as art prompt over on Tumblr, which has been pretty good for that sort of thing – but I am thinking of putting some prompts here instead. I just don’t feel that WordPress is as ‘interactive’ for that sort of thing, but no harm in trying!
This is what I’ve been using for the prompt – so if you have any characters you’d like to see my draw in any of these expressions please let me know? If they are a character of yours (or a canon character I don’t know) then please give me a link to a reference picture.
