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…

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.

Dheireadh na seachtaine/ Getting there…

So at the end of the first week of our Halloween revealing-puzzle, we have had a good run of guesses as to what this image might be.
Though it is very tempting to reveal it all right away, please keep your guesses come in.
Keep in mind that the winner not only need to let us knowwhat is depicted on the illustration, but also who said the following about the illustration:

“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.”

Here’s a hint: Try replacing [SPOILERS] with [HERESY] or any other word/name of your choice…

So are you ready for todays reveal?
Of course you are!
