Oh hey! Haven't submitted anything for some time :B

This Codex was actually released a while ago. Purple fire and demonic clouds, yay!
(Fun fact: Had to find ways to avoid drawing too much attention to his crotch because of the darn light source I chose. :facepalm: )

Great image for a codex cover, I can imagine the title fitting in beautifully. Also please allow me to confirm you avoided making the crotch a focal point, that must've been a doozy when you realised it might be an issue though!

I think this is my favorite codex cover ever! It's so alive! I could babble on for pages on how much I love that the rain gives this omnious feel to it, and how perfect the armour is but I don't feel like anyone would have time to read it! 

Great work! I hope you get to do more codex-covers!!

This is so badass!
The description loaded before the painting, so I was expecting a glowy crotch XD

We miss you!

Thanks! If I hadn't cheated with the light source in the end, it would have been the glowiest of crotches :facepalm:
I miss you guys too!
