Black Templars securing a drop zone

Warhammer 40 000 has always been a great inspiration for me when it comes to illustrations and art in general. I've started many projects on the subject but never really managed to complete one until now and I have to say I really enjoyed creating this one.

Also now that I have a good base for these Black Templars I probably end up doing multiple scenes with them, this being first of a series.

The scene was composited and quite heavily edited in Photoshop, Blender was used in everything else.

I have a LONG history with Blender – I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)


  1. This is top-notch; gnarly.
    I dig the scene.
    (...if I had /any/ critique, the image seems a little staged...which works; yet the sword stuck in the snow, feels like a photo-bomb on an adventure....minor really...perhaps a little sense of momentum behind it's placement)
