Valrak - Imperial Fist by DavidSondered Valrak - Imperial Fist by DavidSondered
Valrak,
A private commission for one of the members at Vigilia Mortis ( [link] ).

I'm pretty happy with this piece as it is a "brother" to [link] (Khullain).
Big thanks to the commissioner who had great patience for this particular commission.


Also, keep checking out the blog for updates. Sometimes I post things there that don't end up on deviantart-> [link]

Actually, when paying attention only to his facial expression, he looks like my girlfriends grandfather, kinda... humble.

I love these sci fi nights, they're fucking awesome.
You should do a tribute to Game of Thrones meets the future.

Oh god, oh god yes. This flashes me so bad. You added the skeleton hand of a fallen battle-brother to his adornments. I remember this from the novel "Space Marine" that I read 10 years ago when I was, pfff, 16? Shivers. Goosebumps. That detail makes pieces like this real and breathing, the whole weight of a deeper story-background now bleeds through to me, and lifts it beyond the already fantastic technical execution.

I love many Warhammer fanart stuff I've seen over the years, but this here piece, it belongs to the paramount and I will celebrate it for a long time.

Why the random Lord Inquisitor quote? Because he is a bald marine with a thunderhammer? Lordi isn't first with that you know...not even by a longshot...

I believe he was using the quote to refer to the above post where he still disbelieves that the helmet could encompass the cranial visage of the Perfect Lord Valrak.

Though there is loads of space for that (I actually copy/paste the helmets and try it out when I paint nowadays..I had a nasty situation where the helmet was too small in the past and I aint never letting that happen again ;) )

But the helmet is to small.

You are basing yourself on that the helmet need to fit on-top of the neck-guard. But on this armour it fits inside... =Errant-styled
