Tonight the mood struck me to upload some images that I never put in the Gallery because of my obsession with showing you only my absloute best; or what I deem will have relevance as far as evolution and technique within my style goes.
But, I see how that could be detrimental to your own opinion or what you might deem important.
Thus, instead of keeping things to myself, I'll pour them here and give you the freedom of choice you deserve. I'll try and be less picky, and that will hopefully keep the flow of my Gallery much more dynamic.

I do a lot of Warhammer 40,000 themed artwork. A lot. Bu I don't always show it all, fearing it'll clutter my portfolio. This is one such case.
This portrait was done for my good friend and fellow artist ~igorvet. He commissioned it at a very special time in his life, when he ws at a turning point.
Thus, I used the Tarot card of 'The Fool' to represent his jumping onto a universe of possibilities, without remorse or regret.
His faourite Chapter, as you can see, is the White Scars. I love this Chaper because it gives me the chance to draw some amazingly detailed armour.

Apart from taking him as an inspiration for the Marine's facial features, he asked me to also incude his dear dog; to this day, it is one of the best renditions of an animal I've done.

Behold the proud Space Marines, sons of the Emperor and defenders of Humanity from the Xenos, the Mutants and the Heretics.

Not necessarily. It's been a costume for a while that most chapters are "multicultural" (by that, I refer to include "latin" names besides "caucasian names"). So, chances are that there also are non-asian White Scars. Yet, I think I haven't seen a single black space marine.

Thanks, I've been wondering wether there exist black space marines. Until now I have only seen caucasian, latin, and asian marines. And gingers.
