Soul Drinkers and Imperial Guards!

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 4, 2013, 8:58 AM
So today I received a treat in my facebook inbox from old colleague and now-kickass GW artist, Kevin "Kingmong" Chin: www.blacklibrary.com/Blog/Art_…

Right now, I'm still awaiting a response from the Black Librarians to see if I am allowed to post some higher-res versions of my 3 Soul Drinkers covers here on DA. Till then, this is all they have up on their blog and all I have to show for, for now! For you Soul Drinkers fans out there, I was told not to reference any notable characters of the SD lore and come up with my own designs.

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. 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!











Also! Hammer of the Emperor cover for Fantasy Flight Games' Only War series of books! Am currently working on a new cover for them, with some green in it :) I am really feeling the 40k love this season!

Congrats. I find that to be awesome!

I was a huge Warhammer 40k guy with IG and Spacewolves and just molding the models themselves, never really playing but always enjoying the books, artwork, and custom models. Love the artwork!

Worm's Eye is great for 40k, 'cause tabletop gives you a bird's eye view
