Hey everyone!
This is basically going to be a dump for all of my drawings, sketches, and finished artwork. While I do have some...interesting...projects planned on the horizon, my main thing right now is doing pieces for the Brotherhood of the Lost. If you don't know what that is, I highly recommend checking it out. Basically, it is an alternate Horus Heresy where the original eighteen legions have been replaced by fan-made lost legions. This will probably explain it better than I can: http://www.bolterand...-here-to-start/
I'm currently doing portraits of these "lost" Primarchs, Forge World style. So without further ado, let's kick this thread off with a pretty picture!

I present: K'awil Pakal, The Soulless, Primarch of the Grave Stalkers Legion.

"Do you remember those stories they would tell us when we were young? Tales of monsters lurking in the shadows, waiting to devour the souls of wayward children. We stopped believing them, of course. We learned that there was nothing to fear in the darkness. But I've seen them. The monsters are real. And they wear power armor." ​Unknown Veletaris of the 3013th Solar Auxilia Cohort

Comments and criticisms are always appreciated!

Awesome man. And he is reeeeeeeaaaally gaunt ;)

Open for Comissions, just PM me. The Wardens of Light were like golden blades, cutting down their enemies scarring the darkness.

Okay, it's been a while since I updated this, so here is a concept drawing of my next subject: Daer'dd, Primarch of the Iron Bears legion.

I'm back! After remembering that I have a WIP blog on here, I figured it's high time I post some WIP's. (And other goodies)
So here is a motley assortment of various characters from the Brotherhood of the Lost-verse. If you're wondering what the hell an Eagle Warrior or a Scion Hospitaller is, feel free to check us out in Special Projects! You know you want to...Anyways, ONTO THE ART:

An initial concept for Odysallas, of the Scions Hospitaller. Some things need to be revised(more ornate weapon, mini narthecium) but it's a good starting point.
med_gallery_92945_11905_588518.jpeg

A rough sketch for Riktus Innorvak, of the Berserkers of Uran Legion. Leader of his legion's Destroyers, and one mean mother:cusser.
med_gallery_92945_11905_132642.jpeg

Oh, and this is Riktus's lovely face. The replacement jaws are a result of an unfortunate incident with an Ork.
med_gallery_92945_11905_266703.jpeg

Here is Takar, First Captain of the Eagle Warriors Legion, along with his trusty steed:
med_gallery_92945_11905_145546.jpeg

This is a more detailed view of Takar, still very much WIP though. He will be recieving a fabulous leopard pelt tabbard.
med_gallery_92945_11912_58063.jpeg

High Chaplain Adalbard and Librarian Mahtva of the Halcyon Wardens Legion. One of whom is not a fan of pyromancy...
med_gallery_92945_11905_164058.jpeg

This is Ellan Temeter, a Remembrancer assigned to the Iron Bears Legion. Gotta represent the little guys(and gals)!
med_gallery_92945_11905_1196854.jpeg

...Aaaand back to the big guys. A finished(!) remembrancer sketch of Daer'dd, the massive Primarch of the Iron Bears:
med_gallery_92945_12003_304110.jpeg

Phew! That's all folks! Let me know what you think, C&C is always appreciated. :)

Awesome. Although I would replace riktus name with jackal. Why? The whole jaw thing is jackals thing. His jaw was rippes oit by a quarith an he looks quite like i would envision space jaws^^

@Big Bad Squig: thanks! I'm excited to be contributing, so there's plenty more coming.

@MikhalLeNoir: See, I was just working off the descriptions that Bluntblade, Simison, and AO108 gave me for existing characters. You can find Riktus in the Berserkers of Uran thread, rules and everything. I had no idea there was another character with metal jaws.

Do you approve of the tabbard idea? I wanted a way to replace the templar look with a more Aztec look, but didn't get a chance to run it by you first.

Riktus' whole face is pretty ruined. It's his entire lower face that was mangled, so he'll look very different to the Jackal (whose face, I assume, is otherwise quite pleasant to look at).

When it comes time for me to draw the Jackal, I'll do my best do differentiate his space jaws from Riktus's space jaws

Riktus looks awesome. Although if you think he's an ugly mofo now, just read about all the damage he and Gathos did to one another and imagine what his face would look like after that ;)
Takar's jetbike also looks awesome

And Cruach Karakal will leave some marks too, further down the line...

Did you get a chance to draw Ellan in happy, wide-eyed mode, Drak?

@Sigismund229: I did see the battles you posted, made a mental note to read them later. There's something about drawing these characters that makes me suddenly invested in their stories.

@bluntblade: I still have yet to do that, been quite busy. But I promise I will find time to draw her in her normal mood. You can only draw so many macho man space marines in a row.

@Raktra: Momentary lack of vigilance? Tsk, tsk :P

Figured I should post this here as well.

This is a very rough iteration of Nibaasiniwii, a great warrior of the Iron Bears legion:
gallery_92945_11912_69296.jpeg

Fun fact, the K'awil portrait at the top of this thread is actually the first finished digital drawing I've ever done. Which means that this^ one, once it's done, would be my second. So this is all very much a learning process for me.

That said, comments and criticisms are always appreciated!

Through the blaze of smoke he came,
An eagle descending from skies of Hell,
Spear and talon wreathed in flame,
As mortal men by the thousands fell.

Alone he stood in a sea of gore,
The daemon reaped his bloody toll,
And from the Chaos came a roar,
The voice of a demigod made whole.

It is with great pleasure that I present Daemon Primarch Alexos from the Brotherhood of the Lost! Let me know what you think.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

Technically he's Undivided(as far as I know) he just happens to like aztec Eagle paraphernelia. Maybe Tzeentch also spiked the Daemon Prince juice?

Maximvs, if you like that drawing, you may also enjoy this one:

Raktra, I'm sure either AO108 or Mikhal are already brainstorming ways to convert him...
