brother astartes by changanghua brother astartes by changanghua
this was a commision pic for my freind who plays warhammer 40k. i realy don't know that much about him and i can't remember his name. the wrighting on the armor is a language my freind made. it says his name and what he is but i forgat the translations for that as well. please forgive the scan. it is actually a scan of a scan. the original is 18x24 and i forgot to ask for a digital when i scaned it. now its behind glass and far away so i cant get a new scan.

okay i have a new picture of this artwork. finally ... it took a trip to collage station to get it. by the way i am not a photographer so its not the best but it a lot better than the scan of a scan.

just for anybody's information, he is Brother-Captain Markus Arelius of the Blood Angels Legion, lost to the Warp shortly after the Horus Heresy and returned to find an Imperium that is completely different then the one he fought for.

Nice...but is he a Thousand Son or a Blood Angel? I can't tell, he has both factions' symbols.

Very nice; especially the wings. :)

Crit:
The head dress (thing) is a bit distracting...doesn't fit very well into the overal composition of the piece.
And the weapon is way too small. Someone of his power (and obviously rank), would have a much larger weapon.

the sword is not his main weapon. the bolter cannon on his gauntlet is..i think. and the helmet was the only thing i was acually told to put on him, most of the rest i had to use some artistic license since i realy didn't know what i was drawing. i agree that it dosn't fit, but it being the main required element there was realy no way around it. the sword may look smaller than it would actually be, because of the way it is turned and its further from the veiwer.
