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…
