As most of you know, Warhammer 40,000 is one of my passions and the subject of my (modest) 'reknown'.
I've done a lot of pieces set in this universe and extenuating as it is sometimes, the reward is always priceless. Works such as these here posted, with their intricacies and huge ammount of detail are extenuating but worth every minute invested in them. I can only hope to do justice to the background of this awesome setting and its relentless battles.
The brief for these commissions, which are meant to be shown side by side, was deceivingly simple: I was to depict a battle of apocaliptic dimensions, with a loyalist side and a chaotic side, both pouring all of their might onto the other.
I'm usually prone to working within the Imperial side of the Dark Millenium, so rendering the brave Imperial Fists and Crimson Fists was an absolute treat. I also got to draw some Cadians here and there and the most amazing and terrifying piece of equipment in the whole Imperium: A Titan. The scale of these weapons is always hard to convey, but I hope I've done it in a way that shows just how incredibly ridiculous and powerful they are.
I hope you enjoy these and let me know what you think, as usual!
