So I was cleaning out some files in my comp, and found these old sketches in half-complete states. Unfortunately I haven't used my Tablet in a long time, so I was a bit out of practice drawing with it, but still finished them up and wanted to share.
These fellas are a progression from candidate to full fledged marine of a DIY chapter I've fiddled around with in my head, the Broken Arrows. Simply put, the homeworld is one big windstorm, and humans have to hunt with understanding of how to shoot arrows/bolts in a way that follows the seemingly random winds. The talent carries over to the Chapter, and the marines have a talent for seemingly impossible shots (a bit short of Wanted style I imagine). The reverence for wind leads to the flowing blue images, intersected with various arrows, and tokens of whistles (the little doodads hanging from all those strings). The clothes/capes are patchwork hides of predators from the homeworld. One day I might draft up a decent Liber entry. If I get really antsy I'll make a test model or two, but aside from the turquoise details I never could come up with a scheme that I liked.
A Slaaneshi marine...not much explanation needed here I imagine. Tentacles, claws, extra limbs, piercings, spikes, leather straps...seemed Slaaneshi enough when I drew it.
I may draw up more soon enough. I found a whole bunch of concept sketches and outlines in an old folder, and some I like the potential of. I just have to practice a bit to get my Tablet drawing skills back up to snuff so I don't butcher them. I'm already a bit irritated looking at the sloppy messes I made finishing what little there was to do on these. It really shows on the Broken Arrow marine
Anyhow, hope you folks like them
