Happy Monday, fellow watchers and watcherettes!
Just a couple of days ago I posted some thoughts regarding the favourites and views system over here at dA and how it seemed to be very chaotic and whimsical. I also added to it some other concerns I had as an artist, receiving a lot of positive feedback and encouragement on your part (which was very appreciated!).
However, as I said, these were only thoughts; and whilst some of you were concerned that I'd stop illustrating the Dark Millenium of Warhammer 40,000, I never meant for such a thing to happen. I will just try to control the quantity of it pouring onto my Gallery, for the sake of diversity.
That said, here's my latest foray into the Emperor's domains; a follow-up of my last grimdark piece ( [link]
), featuring a growing family of assassins.
To be honest, when the client proposed this idea to me I jumped at the opportunity of showing something else from this universe that wasn't just guts and bang-bang (though I understand fully that is the actual atmosphere of the setting!). The possibility of showing a growing family in WH40K is very sparse, but a good change from the usual. I was also sold on the fact that I'd have to render a desert filled with Eldar ruins (one of my favourite environments!).
A few details I'm particularly proud of are the clothes, based on the IG Tallarn regiment, the colour of the sand and the many moons and the poses of the characters (quite natural and dynamic).
I hope you enjoy this one and remember that I will always be glad to do the Emperor's work
