Last Chapter by ukitakumuki Last Chapter by ukitakumuki
This was an image that started life as a speedpainting-collab session at STGCC 2010 between Daryl Tan([link]) and myself.
The idea came about when I brought my rough sketch of some space marines to be used as a starting point for my live demo, only to find out that he was painting a similar piece, albeit at a slightly different angle. So feeling adventurous, I mentioned to him how I thought it would be cool to see how our 2 different images could be amalgamated into one and ended up compositing my sketches around his marines, and going from there. It was a very interesting challenge and I learnt a great deal from the process, because it was more of an art-conversation between us and a practice in simply making use of what's there to begin with while melding 2 separate styles into 1.

By the end of the session we saved the file and agreed to continue from that point in our own time. I'm really looking forward to his rendition!

My final version turned out very different from what I was going for initially (desert scheme marines with a tacti-cool twist) because I learnt he was collecting a Space Marine army of his own, one with a Blood Angel style scheme, and decided to homage it in this image here :) Hope you like it dudel!

As a Blood Angel player, and 40k fan, and friend to a few Artists myself, i am awestruck by this. if this WERE to be able to be wall paper resolution i would indeed like it. makes one wonder if there could be a black library collection of short stories in single volume with the tales of the final battles of "lost"/"extinct" chapters.

Looks like there retreating to a last stand, I like how the shapes aren't clearly defined, gives a sense of dust, derbies etc in the air

The marine has an arm lost, but I will bet he will say, "I didn't lost my arm, it is just over there."

hey! lurking here forever , but I met you at MEFCC today and was super stoked to get my hands on this print!! Its absolutely beautiful, but i cant seem to place the heraldry. Is it a custom design or am I just a noob?

Hi! Am very honoured you dropped by then :) I always loved the idea of travelling to the middle east, I know Dubai isn't the most 'traditional' of places relative to the various cultures there but I was pleasantly surprised to meet such a diverse and cosmopolitan mix of folks from all walks. I suppose its also to do with the fact its a comic con, but hey still one of the best, if not the best con I've attended ever.

The heraldry is custom, and is thought up on the spot. The chapter is homage to Daryl Tan's personal army colours.

Wow. I used to have Blood Angels and this picture made me miss my old army. Gee, thanks. (kidding).

I really love your style, it dirty and gritty and righteously so. I'm a fan of clean artworks, but I'm an even bigger fan of dirty ones that look beautiful and just pull it off. I think this style was born for the grim darkness of the far future.
Someday I hope to be half as good as you. Kudos man, consider me a gibbling warpspawn of a fanboy. :)
