Guess its been on the site long enough! A smaller scale concept piece which was done around the same time as Eternal Crusade Concept Art: Massive Battle by ukitakumuki.

I had to find an opportunity to feature some clavicle-crushing Death From Above action :p

Special thanks: "Guiding Threes" for the excellently put together, but ultimately unused, crash-course document to help me out with Space Wolf lore ;) Thanks man! Maybe one day soon I'll get to do a more involved take on a SW!

In Midnight Clad
So... I just finished reading Aaron Dembski Bowden's Night Lords trilogy, and I truly regret not reading it before doing any of my Night Lords related artwork.

It is now hands-down my favourite Black Library literature to date (I enjoyed the style more than Simon Spurrier's and Dan Abnett's). I'm probably biased given the subject matter, but the storytelling is magnificent. I also found it especially poignant since I read it during my military reservist training. The feels. That ending...GAHHHHH :excited:

About time for my annual journal update..! orz

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 14, 2014, 7:54 AM
Hope everyone's been keeping well!

I realise over the years I've gotten increasingly shite at managing my DA 'routine'. Quite frankly I find myself balacing my time with my client work, teaching endeavour(which is turning out to be a really fulfilling new chapter in life) and working on side projects that I actually find it increasingly difficult to sit down and respond to comments here like I used to. Its always been a thing of mine to respond as much as possible and I still aspire to do so when I can, but I guess I'm in a pretty frantic pace of life at the moment. And I hope that my lack of replies do not come off as apathy or worse. I enjoy reading all the comments and critique and am thankful for your time in letting me know how you feel about the work in general. Especially for my work on hardcore IP like 40K... the level of 'fangasm' as I call it never ceases to blow my mind time and again. You guys always light that fire under my ass and I hope in my own way I never let you down.

As such, I hope that its a bit more obvious that when it comes to posting work I've done, I've always put more emphasis into the description section-- elaborating on my thoughts and process to share as much of my personal experience in art as possible for those of you who are more keen to know. To my mind, its the best I can do to make up for not being able to respond personally to your often colourful commentary. :p

I'm very thankful for all the support over the past decade here on DA(wow has it been that long... u_u), so much wouldn't have happened without it, and I can't wait to share the stuff I've been working on the side in greater detail, soon enough. :)

Have a great weekend!
