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.
Todays efforts where it comes to drawing knights. It wasn’t really my intention on drawing this guy – but I hope he looks the part all the same. Somewhere along the line I decided to turn my sketch in Jorah Mormont.
Initially, I had a bit of a falling out with season 5 of Game of Thrones. The viewing of it on Now TV with adverts through each episode and having to wait a week for the next instalment really killed the season. Which was a real shame, as I was a pretty big fangirl of the other offerings of the seasons. I was brought season 5 on DVD for my birthday and have recently settled down to watch through it again.
I know some people have issues with what happened in the season with Sansa Stark and Ramsey Bolton and the views that everything happened for shock value, etc. But you know what, re-watching the season, it’s really not all that shocking! Rape is rife in Game of Thrones, and if it took until season 5 to get offended by it then you actually did pretty well. I don’t find Sansa and Ramsey any more shocking than Joffrey and Ros in earlier seasons. More shocking was seeing Shireen Baratheons fate, actually, but there we are. Going back to Sansa and Ramsey, so what if that ‘doesn’t happen in the books.’ It’s been confirmed by Author George R R Martin that both book and TV series have diverged from one another and become separate entities in their own right. They aren’t even going to end the same ways apparently! I think that’s why things say ‘Based on the book’ rather than ‘Faithful adaptation of the book.’
I’ve ranted about book/TV conversions somewhere on my blog before – and I didn’t want this post to turn into that rant over again – but what I am trying to say is that I still actually like Game of Thrones, regardless of if things happen for ‘shock value’ or not. But I was still surprised to see Jorah turning up on my sketchbook. He’s a character that, although I like, I didn’t think I’d ever fan-art.
Also managed to draw another Space Marine bust today, which was pretty fun. I didn’t really want to draw another grumpy Space Marine, so here is Sergeant Rafen, grinning like a loony!
Some more sketches for today, I’m really trying to be able to get a bit more packed into my day. Everyone in the house had a good snooze this morning so I actually fit in a few more sketches.
I’ve always enjoyed making up suits of armour on guys and looked to nordic influence for this particular dude.
It’s good fun.
And have a couple of Space Marine sketches.
These guys… they look so strange to me in my particular big head character style. Mostly because of their shoulder pads their heads look a bit more normal sized? Also… same face syndrome hit me here, but there we are… beggars can’t be choosers.
Sorry for the shorter post, although everyone was snoozing earlier I am now sat between a son who is screaming and shaking his toy keys at me and a dog that is cry whining at me because his leg hurts after having a nasty accident that involved him needing stitches.
