The Iron Warrior

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~

Backgrounds are really not my forte…

I think that is what I am enjoying about this particular series of artwork. I am really pushing myself to try new things and try to make them look better than I’ve done previously.

Either way, I finally got round to doing number 4 in my Warhammer Primarchs series – I went with Vulkan because I just finished reading Promethean Sun and it inspired me to pick up the whole 40k hobby again so I feel like I owed it to Vulkan to draw him.

I think on the twitter poll, I got Sanguinius up next, so he’ll be interesting and a lot of fun to draw up – all those blood drops, grails, wings and pretty things that I try to avoid when it comes to my own Chapter; so much is their denial!

Until next time~

Managed to finish off one of the ‘Primarchs’ series of work that I’ve been doing~

Rogal Dorn this time.

Winner of a rather amusing thread over on Twitter – where all my polls are decided.

There was rather a lot of yellow on this one, so you might well need your sunglasses in order to see it properly. I don’t know what colour Imperial Fists were meant to be pre-heresy, but yellow is my favourite colour so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to use it.

Also, it was good fun to draw a Power Fist. Not sure is I made it big enough?

I’ll share some other, non-Warhammer related artworks soon. I’ve a post half in mind with a heap of character sheets I’ve been working on for myself – so I’m looking forward to putting them all up on the same post.

Also a few other bits and bobs to share, if I remember.
