BLACK LEGION by nachomolina BLACK LEGION by nachomolina
Iīm so happy to show my first illustration for Games Workshop for a Warhammer 40k codex supplement under art direction of Darius Hinks.
I painted this one back in June while working full time as a concept artist in a videogame studio. I reccon I was bussy as hell, but in a sense, painting this was kind of relieving as I did it as if it were for myself. Furthermore, I tried to apply all the skills I had developped painting mech stuff for the studio during the previous months. Overall, I learned a lot out of it and it turned out to be such a enjoyable commission. Stay tunned because there will be more to come.

For the Warhammer fans and geeks: Sons of Horus figting Emperorīs Childrens, both becoming Chaos.

EDIT: I updated a small step by step tutorial of this image.

Pre-Heresy Sons Of Horus in Mk. VII Aquila Armor?

Or is that supposed to be Mk. V?

The Eagle armor they wear is supposed to be developed after the forces of Horus entered the solar system, and is almost unknown to be possed by Chaos marines, especially that early.

I wonder why Games Workshop didnt at least give you some reference material.

Definitively! Not only for the brand itself, but also because of the change of register. I was really looking forward to painting mech/sci-fi stuff

I imagine the road for a digital artist can be pretty tough and 'draining' in a sense, having to produce a lot of uninspiring and tedious work. From the artist's point of view of course depending on what you like =)

Yup, kind of. Being freelance, you can always choose which commissious you wanna take and which not. The "problem" is clients usually ask you to paint what they see in your portfolio. Thatīs why itīs nice, from time to time, to go off your comfort zone so then you can learn to do new things and offer a different range of registres, styles or whatever. In my personal case, I had been doing a lot of sword and sorcery stuff, and particularly paintings for the Game of Thrones Universe, which is cool, but I felt I needed to move on to different things.
