“Sanguinius. It should have been him. He has the vision and strength to carry us to victory, and the wisdom to rule once victory is won. For all his aloof coolness, he alone has the Emperor's soul in his blood. Each of us carries part of our father within us, whether it is his hunger for battle, his psychic talent or his determination to succeed. Sanguinius holds it all. It should have been his...” - The Warmaster Horus

And this, is the extent of my artistic prowess up to date. Sanguinius is my pride and joy. The 5th Primarch tribute . 13 more to go.

If anyone in W40k 'died for our sins', it was Sanguinius and not the Emperor. *sighs sadly* Poor San, he really would have been the perfect successor. A great piece, I wish I had your skill at digital art! Please, keep making these!

As a funfact, I dropped by here because a friend of mine shared your art on Tumble but had forgotten who had made it. I remembered seeing this piece before on here, and decided to see if I could find you. And I did!

(Here is my re-Tumble of the post, now with a link to you: [link]

Why have I only found this now! Awesome work. I do prefer the hair like this, all the other styles tend to make him look either electrocuted or vampiric.

I like the expression of his eyes. *___*
In fact thats a very impressive feature of all of your primarchs. There are not many warhammer pics where people actually have memorable faces.

The armor is perfect! But I dislike the face and hair, though that has nothing to do with quality and more my personal image of sanguinius.

This is awesome. There's really not much else to be said; it's just that awesome.

The only thing that made him feel fear was the Emperor's silence.

I <3 Sanguinius, from his character to the representation you've given. Wonderful work.

Thank you very much,

It means you are going to absolutely love Magnus the Red as well.

I look forward to seeing your rendition of the Crimson King when it's completed. :D

There is a very small sneak peek on my avatar ;) , subtle but barely notice-able.
annemarie's avatar
No surprise from me, it was your avatar that drew me to the rest of your gallery in the hopes of seeing a larger piece. But I can wait. *takes out a chair and sits patiently* :)

This is an Amazing Picture. I would pay to have all 18 of them if you ever decided to pass them out.
Koowanchee's avatar
Payment? Oh dear. Well. That would be awesome. I guess. What would you like to see actually?
conquerer9192's avatar
I find your Pictures absolutely stunning and I would like to have all 18 of them in 1 picture if you could do that then I would buy it without hesitation.
Koowanchee's avatar
You mean, make a painting, featuring all of them? Or just jumble them up together?

I am painting all of them individually for now. And will start pairing up stuff. Like Leman Russ versus The Lion.
