word bearer terminator by slaine69 word bearer terminator by slaine69
heh chuffed with this one, there's something really freeing about simplifying digital work, no texture overlays, no colours, no background, minimal layers, just full on drawing......and a fair amount of Adrian Smith reference!!! (the 40k artist not the guitarist of Iron Maiden, though I was listening to a lot of Maiden at the time)

This ones for you litch, I told you I'd get around to it some day haha

I noticed you have this available as a print, just out of curiosity have you ever managed to make a sale of a warhammer print? DA's official stance says they don't allow it and that they check before they print, so i wondered if that was just lipservice to cover their asses, thanks in advance for letting me know :)

Awesome work. The Word Bearers give me the deep down willies. ADB did a great job humanizing them in "First Heretic", and Anthony Reynolds made them so inhuman in his series.

If only eyes could kill, pretty cool work on the shoulder pads and armour dents.

He looks like a nasty son of... i mean, the character of a true chaos worshipper shines through his face alright!

No problem . May I ask, what software do you use, and what do you prefer to use the most? Maybe a combination of programs or anything like that? Your artwork is amazing!

slaine69 Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2011
hey due sorry it took so long to get back to you, as far as the programs I use, mostly its from start to finish photoshop CS5, not that it really makes a difference from all the other CS's, I used to use Painter X for colour correction, as it's a little more acute but I found that photoshop has more flexibility in what you draw from the start. sorry dude if that makes little sense but I'm better with pictures than words, my process is this [link] with more detail chucked in depending on how long the picture lasts, if there's anything else you want to know I'll make sure I get back to you lickety split and thanks again for being so patient.

Hah! Thank you, I managed to figure out myself! found the video eventually ;)

Don't worry about the reply thing, I know how it is when you got truckloads of fans, god knows I am barely keeping up with comments on my primarch artwork!

The only thing I am wondering now, is the Night Lord concept sketches you did!

Mainly where did you get the awesome inspiration for so many details. And if you used corel or photoshop for the lineart, or a specific setting like oil or ink.

slaine69 Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2011
hey there!

with the sketches I usually get on the internet and find as much resource material as I can like pictures, minis, weapons and armour types but the main influence was ADB'S book Soul Hunter, when I got the commission I got hold of the book and read the crap out of it taking notes as to anything that would make the characters stand out whether it was some defining armour type or general personality. I also use these two books as a constant source of reference
[link]
[link]
they're like 40k bibles to me.
So! to summarize, I reference the crap out of the sketches, which is not to say I get 'em right all the time either, I think it took like four or five attempts to get a Talos that ADB was happy with.
As for the drawings themselves they were done with a 5B or 6B pencil (depending on what one hasn't been dropped recently which breaks all the lead inside, ugh I hate it when that happens) and then I scan the image and bring it into photoshop and mess with the curves (under the adjustment settings in 'Image' on the top bar) until I get the picture nice and contrasted, I actually got a step by step for that too
[link]
I think it's close to the bottom of the page.
hope this helps :headbang:

"From the fires of Betrayal unto the blood of revenge we bring the name of Lorgar, the Bearer of the Word, the favored Son of Chaos, all praise be given to him. From those that would not heed we offer praise to those who do, that they might turn their gaze our way and gift us with the Boon of Pain, to turn the Galaxy red with the blood, and feed the hunger of the Gods."

-Excerpt From the three hundred and forty-first,Book of Epistles of Lorgar

The word bearers Rock!.
