Horus and Sanguinius

Old ambitious artwork that I decided to post now. Horus and his brother Sanguinius fighting side by side for the Emperor, before the corruption, the betrayal, the heresy.

There's a lot of mistakes in here which I decide not to fix because it has taken too long. But despite the mistakes, I've learnt a lot from doing this piece.

The two greatest primarchs ever. It's easy to see why these two were the Emperor's top favorites.

the best artwork of Sanguinius i have seen yet!!!

These two were THE Primarchs. The strongest and in my opinion most noteworthy. This is coming from a guy who's a huge Dark Angel fan and I Love the Lion. But these two.. it's sad Horus was possessed.

just wondering, is this inspired - or a drawing of - the 'war' on the planet Murder shown in Horus Rising, because this is what I pictured whilst reading it

I really enjoyed that bit of Horus Rising...mainly because the Wolves are my favorite legion

Horus had hair before the heresy...unless this was RIGHT before the heresy, Horus used to have short brown hair in a simple crew cut sort of style.
