heheh. but seriously folks the disparity in viewership between my 40k works and my recent original stuff is just so damn ridiculously large that it's funny.

well anyway, here are just some things i drew up after digging out my old IG codex and flipping through some of the pages.
up top we have private (now sergeant) Benson. some of the guys rumor that he raped an Eldar but none you guys would believe that, now would you?
and at the bottom we have a stormtrooper from the 85th Vendoland stationed in the Aurelian Sector during the Tyranid invasion.

Sergeant Benson rumoured to have raped an Eldar eh? (Shaking head-incidentally wearing a Commissar's cap-in such a manner that clearly illustrates disinterest) Ah well, these things happen in warfare and should it happen to the xenos scum? No concern of mine.....

Love his M4 style lasgun though and his general modern military look!

Why's he holding an M4? What happened to his lasgun?

I suspec that that probably is a lasgun. It's just that it ended up looking like a cross between the Kantrael-pattern and a Cadillac Gage Stoner LMG (with an M4-style telescopic stock) so as to mesh with the overall aesthetic established by the artist.

I REALLY like your WH40k-Stuff.... But to be honest - I would really enjoy it to see more of your OC from the Game. I totally like the player-cast. I like everything, but especially the player cast. And since GW took an author to court for using the word "SPACE MARINE" in her book... I'm finished with GW. I stopped buying anything from them. (Oh my poor imperial Army... ;) ) That doesn't mean I dont't like Warhammer-Artwork ... I just don't support GW any more. And to get that right: I love your IG-pictures. Especially those who are telling a story or catching a moment. Those who are made in the style of old photos from WW1 and 2.

(...For real: "Space Marine"?!? As if they invented this word! It's like they sue Infinty Ward for using the word "War" in the title of Modern WARfare.... And hey...they didn't take Blizzard to court. Maybe because Blizzard has money and good lawyers and a small author does not? I could go on now for hours BUT... this is not the place.... What i actually wanted to say: Go on! Draw some more OC. I like it. XD )

well don't really hear much of anything big coming from GW anymore. i suppose they're just really really bored now to have done something like that.

well to be honest i really do like drawing my alternate history stuff, and what i really like about it is how fresh it feels right now, and i suppose by drawing a bit of warhammer here and there i maintain its (my original works) freshness by not overusing it.

if there's one thing i've learned after drawing mostly 40k stuff for a little under 5 years straight, is that you will come to a point where you'll be trying to look for ideas to strap onto this fandom when you could be using them for original material you can call your own.
it's like renting land, you keep paying and paying but it'll never be truly yours. that's what i started feeling with all the new concepts and ideas i thought up for WH40k.
all those concepts and ideas i made no matter how new and original will never be truly mine because i made the mistake of strapping them onto this fandom.

I know what you mean. I've been drawing 40k-Stuff many years (before I got to DA) because I liked it so much. I'm a guy that often overuses stuff - I'm hearing my favourite music over and over again, playing the same game... and draw the same stuff. And that feeling you get when you finally start something new is unbeatable. :D
