“Winter is Coming.”
…well summer more likely, but just love that quote having lived in Sweden, where no matter what, temperatures are always a tad chilly. Currently we are experiencing some nice sub-tropical temperatures here in Western-Europe, the windows are opened and the sounds of (urban) nature are definitely leaving a mark on the items we currently produce.
The quote however does apply to a private commission currently being produced. A nice bit, depicting an alternative Heresy than the canon 40k one, and for which we are happy to provide some snippets from.
The full image will appear on next week’s blog or at worst the week after that one. The client must, after all, have the right to parade the image around before we post it here.
If you can guess the Primarchs involved, you might understand why the “Winter is coming” quote applies.
Also, we have decided, since we are such nice peeps here, to provide you with some details from the Kaiju Beast contest. Last week we posted the linework/sketch and now we give you an insight on how it looks coloured in.
We are handing the final piece in somewhere next week, no point in keeping it around even when the deadline is more than a month away. We entered the competition to do something different, as a personal challenge, so not per se to win. Would be nice, but was not our prerogative.
And as a quick intermezzo: we are posting some of our sketches over at TUMBLR, nothing fancy but for those who are interested: feel free to drop by and add us.
And finally a question to you, our loyal reader: Do you have any ideas for some kick-ass piece of artwork that we should produce? Any movies, games, books and whatnots that are coming out this year, or have come out and by a shear fluke of nature, we missed out on, that YOU would like to see something rendered from?
We are currently looking for some fun projects to fill out the daily routine, so any input is more than welcome.
Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance;
they make the latitudes and longitudes.
