Crimson Lord Argel Tal and Cyrene Valantion. Inspired by some extracts from the wonderful novel by A. Dembski-Bowden "The First Heretic" (yay, I wish there would be several more chapters about those two).
About 3 hours, hope to finish it one day.

Well, guys, here is a small update. I'm very grateful to those who wrote me and showed a post in a blog of Aaron Dembski-Bowden. That was a great wow-wow-wow-surprise. :)
And this... aarondembskibowden.wordpress.c…
I'm really happy because I got a biggest reward an artist can have. Especially in case of Cyrene and Argel Tal who became my favourite characters from the very begining of the novel.

I would love to purchase a copy of "RED" 40K Cyrene & Argel Tal. Is it available for sale?

Давно нравится эта пара, хотела написать стих по ней, но не получалось, чего-то не хватало. Увидела арт и он стал той самой последней частичкой, которая была нужна для творчества. Теперь нашла автора, и могу сказать - спасибо, это было потрясающе^^

Ohhh... It is just PERFECT *___*

In my opinion, "The First Heretic" is one of the most beautiful books in the whole "Horus Heresy" series, and Argel Tal is a character with one of the most painful stories. I still want to draw him and Cyrene's white statue in the darkness of spaceship hall...but not sure about my skill v_v Such beautiful scene shouldn't be drawn poorly.

And your art, again... I have no words, literally. Wish I could borrow some from Word Bearers... ^^'

Hey! I'm reading this awesome novel and I was looking for a drawing of Cyrene. I was surprised because this was the only one I found, so I decided to make my own fanart too. I hope you take an eye on it, and tell me what you think, they're very different, but everyone has a different way to imagine characters.

By the way, I really like your drawing and its variations. I like the way you used the brushes and colours, fantastic work!

Here is mine: Click here

See you!

any story that pushes the humanity of astartes is great in my book
Oh Lord... My favorite "Horus Heresy" character, Argel Tal...
He looks so human in your piece, I almost expect him to lend his hand towards Cyrene...
First time EVER I am rendered silent by ANY artwork... Wonderful job here

Thank you very much for the kind words. I like this character too. Actually that novel greatly staggered me and I couldn't keep myself from drawing something to describe my emotions.
You are welcome :)

Thought I'd point out as well that ADB is also using the middle piece as his avatar on B&C if you didn't know.

Wow... )) Thanks!
Восхитительно! Прекрасно! А стих тоже ваш?
Noldofinve's avatar
Спасибо. :) А автор стихотворения указан в конце (надо нажать на иконку за знаком (с) ).
Да, спасибо, я уже обратил внимание) Но этот арт нарисован все-таки прекрасно

Этот роман Дембски-Боудена меня очень зацепил. Не в последнюю очередь благодаря трогательным отношениям Аргела Тала и Кирены. 
Да, меня тоже
