Fulgrim (also known as the Phoenician) was one of the twenty Primarchs created by the Emperor in the earliest days of the Imperium

free time = Primarch time, heh heh

he looks a little too muscular, it is pretty good don't get me wrong, one of the best i've seen, most pics i see of fulgrim are only ones of his face or half body pics (so annoying) but he looks a little too broad here, Fulgrim was known for being the the tall, slender, almost feminine Primarch with his pale skin, elf like face and milk white hair n dark eyes.

One of the best renditions of fulgrim on deviantart. I love the face, the sword and the blood on it, and the faces carved into the armour. Always loved those creepy faces. I can say without a doubt that you are the best 40k artist I've seen.

Fulgrim... the harbinger of doom =) Very good details. I like his demonic like hoof - very chaos-ish =) But, I think the ornaments need to be brighter in order to stand out. It's easy to miss them with the current coloring. GJ and cheers =)

He was/is an asshole... Beautifully done though :p

A fascinating work of art, indeed :) But somehow he reminds me of Mephiston here :)

Oh that's gorgeous, you've really captured him on the point of his fall. Is that the Laer sword he's holding?

Okay, I love you so much for this beautiful drawing of my lord Fulgrim. I bow to you sir and kiss your feet.

awesome and a brilliant work of art, VERY accurate but just one small thing, it may just be the armour in which case ignore what i say now but...he looks bulky, Fulgrim was slender unlike his brothers, he was almsot feminine

A wonderful Fulgrim picture. It's so much more fun to see him as an evil character, fallen from grace even without himself knowing it.

Perfect Fulgrim, constructive crit...erm well honestly I can't see anything I'd improve, I mean there is always room for improvement so they say but my eye is not that refined yet, I mainly just go with my gut right now. Great job.

It looks good to me, especially the blood on the tip of his blade. Do you still use the same technique that you showed in your terminator/ultramarine tutorials, or have you started doing it differently? Just wondering since these more recent primarch pictures seem far more complex than the pictures in the tutorial. The only problem I can see with this picture is that the shading on the back edge of the sword seems a little off, possibly too dark. It makes it look like it is twisted to the side where it curves into that loop at the end.
slaine69 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2010
yeah it was pointed out to me on another forum as a 'mobius loop' I think I'm gonna have to fix it at some point, the mad thing is I would never be able to do it if I actually tried to, paint me baffled

yeah dude I still use the same process, with working on the shape and shading before adding the colour on separate layers, the only difference is the time spent on the pictures the tutorials were done really quickly while the primarchs take about a day. I've got a post here [link] that shows what a picture with a lot more work put into it looks like

Alright, I see it now. Seeing the steps of that picture helped me understand that a bit more. I think what the issue with my own pictures is that I tend to go too dark, rather than getting the details out in white, I put them in with gray when I am starting off the picture. Hmm, not entirely sure but I'll work it out. Anyway, thanks for the link to the steps. Looking forward to seeing more, either here or on the Bolter and Chainsword.

Awesome! All that engraving on the armor must have taken forever.
slaine69 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2010
cheers man it was slightly brain melting but it tends to pay off
ReignOfTempest Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2010
Awesome. You should do one of the ultramarines primarch. xD
slaine69 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2010
I'm slowly working my way through the Primarchs so I'll wager Guilliman will pop up soon
ReignOfTempest Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2010
Awesome~~!! I'm lookin forward to it. I'll be watching you! o_o
