Astropath

At the moment I have one project which is taking most of my time. The Chapel. More details will come in due time but for now here’s the start of a project that’ll run along side it. symbol

The first character is the Astropath Caecilus “The warp whisperer” and his eyes the cherubium Dorus.

The colour palette for this project will be warm and cool greys from Warcolours translucent range and various washes and inks I have. The idea is to make the characters look as if they are growing out of their surroundings, as if the ground they walk on posseses them.

As always comments are welcome.

  1. This is a lovely piece, where is the original model from?

    1. Cheers! It’s the necromancer from the Mortis Engine kit.

  2. I really like the way the character appears to be an extension of the surroundings – possessed by them as you describe – and the emphasis you’ve brought to that by having his staff and cherub stand out rather than then man himself. Looking forward to getting a look at this chapel project overall 🙂

    1. Cheers Wudu! I may be able to post a few teaser shots soon.

  3. Very cool indeed – the pose is perfect, and I love the blending on the robes. As you say, the character seems rooted into his environment in a very disturbing way! Lovely 🙂

    1. Thanks Alex. Most citizens of the Imperium are born, raised and then die in one place, on one world. So this gave me the idea that the very walls that surround them eventually consume them.

      1. Ha, that’s what my office feels like!

      2. Ha ha ha! I know that feeling.

  4. Oh wow, what an awesome piece of work!

    1. Cheers Thomas!
