Lantern Marines Chapter Master by DavidSondered Lantern Marines Chapter Master by DavidSondered
Here is another Lantern MArines commission.
This time it is their Chapter Master. Name is unknown to me.

Yes, he looks like Ozzy Osbourne...somewhat.
The theme is Tiki/Polynesian mixed with heavy metal.
As far as I understand it, one of the main ideas that came out of brainstorming the Lanterns was that their ChapterMaster should look like Ozzy.
I have tried to steer the look away a little but I like how it came out in the end.

Cookies to those who figure out who the heroes in the background are originally based upon...

Also, I did a revision, where the bat was added. Whilst painting it I wrote this little tidbit that the commissioner liked, so it stays with the image:

"Chiroptera Ignis

The firebat is a known predator on the Lantern homeworld.
It is not called Firebat because it light up with fire,
rather it reflects in a somewhat unnatural manner.
The tribesfolk of the planet would enter the caves of
the bats with torches and thus see bats of fire.
They are common pets of the tribes and sometimes also used by Lantern Marines.

It is considered bad luck to eat the head of a firebat..."

Characters behind are based off BloodQuest last two surviving members (Cloten and Lysander) who bring Blade Encarmine back and tell part of the tale of their former captain Leonatos and marines that went to retrieve the sword.

Am I rite?

I love your work on the Lantern Marines. It's such a unique take on tribal Space Marines. I hope to maybe see more in the future. Keep up the amazing work!

That image, along with about twenty more of Ozzy's face, where a base of the ref for his face, yes... But it is still a fictional character..

this is very badass, I'm curious but do you have an Idea of who their Primarch might be "I'm not sure if I spelled that right"

DavidSondered Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Lantern Marines are a Dark Angels successor, according to the commissioner, so I would assume that Lion El'Jonson is their Primarch :)

Glad you like

No, just very tribal in their beliefs and traditions (like the Space Wolves)

[link] I thought of these two. I could find you an image from the comic that looks exactly like them... I know a lot of metal music, none of the performers. So, pass on the cookies, need to watch my girlish figure anyways.

Ah, Lysander and Cloten.. no it's not them.
The one with a mustache has been confirmed as being Lemmy Kimster from Black Sabbath... the other one is slightly trickier, yet not so far from Lemmy...

Just found a link to one of your commissions and I just wanted to comment and tell you how great your art is. One thing I do have to say about this is when was Lemmy ever in Black Sabbath? I know he co-wrote some songs for Ozzy along with Zakk Wylde but as far as I know he was never in Sabbath, just Hawkwind and Motörhead. Again great art.

I believe that is the best bet. It was/is commissioned pieces and as such created by the client.
