The Blood by NicolasRGiacondino The Blood by NicolasRGiacondino
Salutations, watchers and watcherettes...

In keeping with my promise of instilling life to the Gallery, I've put my pride aside and decided to upload works (if disclosure agreements permit) as I finish it, whether they're worth it or not of being amongst what I consider my best.

This one will appeal to all of you Imperial citizens. An illustration of some of the legends of the Blood Angels.
I've always loved illustrating this Chapter and, even though the Ultramarines are the chosen ones to represent the best of the Astartes, they've always seemed to me to be very good examples of what a Space Marine is. In fact, it was even acknowledged by Horus himself that the Warmaster title should've been given to his brother Sanguinius.
So, important fellows indeed.

I tied to keep the colours very tight and in tune with the Chapter's scheme. Golds, reds and white are predominant. I've also used (at the express request of the client) the same composition of my Mournival piece and to great effect I think.

As usual, you'll be the true judges of this piece. I hope you enjoy it.

 For Sanguinus, For The Emperor and for my own money this is a truly beautiful image; I'd love to see you compose pieces like this for every Loyalist chapter, but fear that there simply aren't enough hours in the day for me to justify taking up so much of your time!

If 40k had a cartoon, this style would be it.

I have looked at all of your work with astonishment, I really wish however that youd do some pro chaos pieces, that would be epic,
a fan.
