Black Library: Soul Drinkers Omnibus #3 by ukitakumuki Black Library: Soul Drinkers Omnibus #3 by ukitakumuki
Breaking the radio silence! Finally got approval to release some screen friendlier versions of the Soul Drinker's covers I did for Black Library back in December; also a big shout out to Darius Hinks at Black Library/GW for being a great producer/art director on this!

"Semi glossy Purple in battle" was quite the challenge to work with for me, and I hope I did the Soul Drinkers justice to all you SD fans out there!

The general brief for the 3 covers was to have a tactical space marine, a captain, and lastly a dreadnought (being awoken). I thought it would be a neat idea to compose all the covers from a similar worms eye angle, not just for theatrics but rather to literally show the life cycle of a Space Marine as he fights and rises through the ranks, leading his brethren and eventually being entombed within a dreadnought to continue his tireless fight. I was told not to reference any notable characters of the SD lore and come up with my own designs. As such, a mini easter egg I had going just for shits and giggles was instead of the main character on each cover becoming the character in the subsequent cover, it was the background marine that made the evolution, implying that maybe the 'cover' characters never survived the cut. Whatevs. :| I hope you enjoy them regardless!
