Did a bit of Fanart of Aaron Dembski-Bowden's Ashur-Kai from 'Talon of Horus'.
Painted him in Black Legion colours rather than with his Thousand Sons outfit.
Hopefully this will make some people happy, as I have seen the name float around on the ethernets...
The White Seer! (Is there third Black Legion book on it's way? )
I talked to Aaron about it (knowing the author has it's perks), and showed him throughout making it, but he never tol me I should skip the hair so I just went with it... weird...
anyways. did u pain over another picture? i sort of see something fade in this.
I often do kitbashing when I make art these days, but for this I think I only used two images.. plus the original ink-sketch.
And a Raven logo (for the blue part of his belt).
For the rest, whilst relying heavily on reference for the style, I painted it completely from scratch.
The top background, the lights and the cords stretching from the ceiling, where made with hard-edged selections. Then I dropped the opacity of that layer (it was the last layer I put on the image, apart from the signature).
I have been gravitating towards the artistic style of Ruan Jia, Wei Feng, and Yang Qi, for a long while. And I am starting to get it
(I didn't know you had a Devart account )
