How much could he have been of use to the legion during the Heresy, if he had not been the stupid dog of the Emperor.

Nicely done. Although those reddish eyes give him a bit sinister chaos vibe. Unfitting for someone slayed for opposing Chaos. But that still just my opinion.

Overall this artwork is superb.

Thanks, though I never understood why the color of someone's eyes would determine their alignement, Sanguinius had red eyes and he died for same reason as Tarik. He looks high rather than chaos-y here, but that was my mistake in design.

Hard to tell, if there is any mistake to speak of. I just told what is my perception. Probably influenced my popular culture red eyes demons and such. This is subjective opinion, nothing more.

And this the only potential critique I might have on this. Beside this, it is excellent work of art.

I agree, popular culture may have added bits of unwritten rules over the years on certain things that still influence us.

When I finished the drawing, I tought he looked bit too sinister for a character that is supposed to be good and the color of his eyes didn't help, that's the reason I said that was a mistake on my part, sorry if my comment came out a bit harsh, that wasn't my intention (terrible at english), you are right to express your own opinion, especially a critique, it keeps me exploriong further how to avoid such mistakes in the future.

Anyway, I appreciate your comment and that you think so highly of it! :)

From my experience, others often perceive our creations in the way we would not anticipate.

Your comment didn't come out harsh. I simply wanted to point out, that that I'm just expressing personal opinion, not judging merits of the artworks. I myself wouldn't even know where to start with Tarik. You managed to give him that trickster appeal and that's really big success.
