Ashur-kai 40k fanart by DavidSondered
Ashur-kai 40k fanart

Did a bit of Fanart of Aaron Dembski-Bowden's Ashur-Kai from 'Talon of Horus'. 
Painted him in Black Legion colours rather than with his Thousand Sons outfit.

Hopefully this will make some people happy, as I have seen the name float around on the ethernets...

Wow your stuff is amazing! Wish you had some process shots I'm so curious about your methods!

Hi Brian, I'm trying to do some process shots of a recent work I got, but it is very difficult for me to do process shots because I do not have a standard procedure.

Essentially, if I have an idea or script/brief

1st I lay the very rough lines of how things are organised on the page/panel.

2nd I either block in rough values of light and dark / OR / I copy-paste things from other places, make them black and white, and add them to my shapes (this is to get a sense of roughness to the values. The idea is NOT to take something from someone else , it is to use textures and/or shapes that will fit in my work.

3rd I will start painting. I will paint on top of everything. The key is- whatever gets you to your goal. have a clear view of how you want it to look in your mind, and do whatever you can to attain this goal.

4th I will do some adjustments of colour and light (for instance, lights in the scene can get pushed by using a slight colour dodge in Photoshop. Shades can get helped by using Soft light and paint a saturated dark).

5th, whatever is needed to finalize it. This might be nothing, it might be adding a texture or doing a filter.

I hope that helps, but to be honest, half of the time I don't work like this neither... it is just the most common way I work, not THE way. :)
