In the grim Darkness of the far future, there is only... artwork
This one goes to all the fans of the Dark Millenium that usually wait quite long between these images. Now you got two (three even, if you count Vulkan!) in a row. I hope you enjoy!
This one I like a lot because it let me draw Space Marines as usual, but adding a twist: a non-regular Chapter, the Celestial Lions, versus a very cool Traitor Chapter, the Night Lords (the Batman Legion of the 41st Millenium). With them I particularly wanted to achieve a great effect on their armour, because it is described as being in constant change and movement, as if there was a storm raging within it. However, it's hard to achieve that in paint, but we can get close.
I rendered the plates as if they were indeed electrified and constantly fluxing with lightning. I hope I've achieved the desired effect!
I also think the scene depicts quite a violent battle, which is what the client requested, so...
Let me know what you think as usual!
