Dark Vengeance


"..and they shall know no fear."

I guess it was only a matter of time before I got around to drawing on of the Emperor's finest (as I've been listening the Horus Heresy audiobooks from the Black Library). I don't think I've drawn a Space Marine (let alone a Dark Angel!) since my rough book covers from school (suffice to say, at least 12 years!). Had a lot of fun experimenting with Col-erase and colourless blending markers to create softer tones, although was still trying to keep it relatively sketchy. I've just received a toned sketchbook in the post which I'm really excited to give a go (along with some white Col-erase pencils for creating highlight tones). Hopefully starting with a mid tone will allow for some more varied value sketches and studies.

Hmm.. don't think this is going to be the last Space Marine I draw... :-D
