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~
Mostly due to the house move, I have lost my way a bit with where I was on the hobby front.
I only unpacked my models today and managed to get them on the shelf.
So I really should get them sorted out better into their individual units so I can easily see where I am at.
I half recall having the need to stick together some more Bikers – as there only appears to be four base coated – so I shall have to find them and put them together as I believe these are the last few models I have to stick together before my company has enough models in it to be called a Company (I think that was my aim before moving house anyway, getting them all stuck together before painting them)
Thankfully during the move there was little in the way of casualties – just a few arms need sticking back on. Ideally, I would like to get a display cabinet for them nearer where I do my ‘art stuff’ in the conservatory.
But, this is their home for now and I just need to find the last few biker dudes and ‘crack on’
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!
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.
