A little red project

Written by David.

So a lot of people wonder what artists do in their spare time.
Most of the time, most artists will tell you, there is no spare time.

Sometimes, however, we take the time to do some sideprojects, because they appeal to us, or we like the idea, or we just have time for once.

This is one such project.

About two months ago I was contacted by DesignStrike UK, with the question if I was interested in painting some concepts and a full illustration for a project meant to turn into a Tv-series about the Horus Heresy.
As I am in the middle of painting Primarchs on my spare time, I thought it nice to spice it up by having some other people tell me how to paint something from the 40k (30k) Universe.

This is not a common thing, it just coincided with a little more spare-time and a window of opportunity.

If you are interested in knowing more about this project, they have a FB-page here: https://www.facebook.com/HorusHeresyProject

Below you will find two concepts, a Terminator and a regular Space Marine, bth of the Blood Angels Legion, 5th Chapter.

Underneath these concepts, you will find three varients of a pitch–illustration, meant to go Games Workshops way.
I’d love to hear which one you like the best, and why!

If this gets enough support and the favour of GW, it might turn into a paid project, in which case I hope to be part of it, but until then, you migh see sketches from time to time on their FB-page and on the blg, just don’t count on it happening every week. Paid work unfortunately have to come first…

“Can I just use your images, like, however I want?” / Artworks to show.

So this is a dual post. It will start by making a point about posting other peoples artwork around the Internet without referring to the artist.
It will end with a couple of new artworks from the studio.
In a couple of days, there will be a new post with process on the Mortarion-piece, but today’s post is important.

So recently, it came to the attention of a couple of artists that I keep close contact with, that a certain Facebook-page is posting images.
Nothing bad about this, however, the page is notoriously bad at referring to the artist.
Art-theft

So the second comment sais it is Karl Richardson, which is helpful, however, the comments are really not where such a reference should be, they should be where the artwork is posted, in the description.

This is a quite serious problem, usually brushed aside by fans as not being a problem at all.
So let’s try and give a little insight in this part of being an Artist.

    FANS, this is for You! Take a good look and try understanding why this is important!

Let’s post this as an image. There will be a “free to use” disclaimer in the bottom of the image(s).
Please take your time to consider what each point say.

Art-theft2

So what does this mean?

It means that whoever made the art you found cool and wanted to repost- tell us who made it! In the description of the art.
If you don’t know, the write that. That way, if someone let you know, you can alter it.

Does it mean that you will never be able to show any of Studio Colrouphobias works online?
No, it doesn’t. Of course you will.
But we would appreciate being asked. Sometimes our works are actually not for show everywhere. Some commissioners pay for more exclusive views. And we would demand a reference on the artwork, back to us, our website or facebook-page would be preferable.

It means that whoever made the art you found cool and wanted to repost- tell the viewer who made it! In the description of the art.
If you don’t know, then write that you don’t know. That way people can help you find out and, if someone let you know who the artist is, you can alter it.
You see, if we don’t get referred to then nobody will commission us, which also mean we will need to stop doing what we do.
And then there will be no art from us.
Everybody looses.

And now to stop on a more light note.

Here is a piece that Natasja has been working on on and off for a while:
sharks

Being the more traditional painter of the studio, she is working mainly in Artrage, using some techniques She “learnt in the age of the dinosaurs, only now applying them on a digital canvas.” Images used for reference comes, amongst others, from National Geographics.

We hope to be able to show more of Natasjas work shortly.

Also shown today, is the newest commission David completed.

Until next time!

HalloweenSpecialPuzzle-29
“Throne of God, that’s fucking breathtaking.
I… Fuck, what can I even say? It’s in the Best Five 40K artworks I’ve ever seen. And bear in mind how tired I am of [SPOILERS] and how [SPOILERS]… and I still think that’s the best [SPOILERS] artwork I’ve ever seen in my life.
Soulful. Beautiful. Incredible.”

“No, more than that. It’s definitive. That’s now what [SPOILERS] looks like in my head.
Just breathtaking.”

The person who guesses who said the above, along with what/who is on the final artwork, will win a signed print of the artwork once it is revealed. Signed and sent directly to their home address, wherever in the world they live.

The Answer need to be logged right here on the blog or on our Facebook page.

UPDATE-

There will be four runner-ups, for a total of FIVE winners. One will receive a signed poster of the illustration being revealed sent to them as per above. The other four will win another illustration, signed, sent to them. The illustrations for winner 2-5 will not neccesarily be 40k related, but if they already have a poster of ours, they are adviced to let us know so that we can make sure they won’t have duplicates.

The winners will be declared on 30th of October. That’s tomorrow folks!
