Alexander the Grey V2 by Baldemyr Alexander the Grey V2 by Baldemyr
Im not sure where this should sit. 10 years back, in the days of love for Warhammer 40k art, I drew a peice called Alexander the Grey. He was a head on view of a "made up" Space Marine Captain in a Chapter of my own design(as per the rules allowed within the game). One of the big flaws in the work was that it was improperly planned and the figures massive sword dissapeared off the bottom.
I decided to do a NEW version of the picture showing all ive learned in the last 10 years of drawing. Ironically, once again I screwed up the placement and size of the figure and had to turn his Greatsword into a Greataxe. Im an idiot.

*** I have updated this pic with a higher rez sepia version

The figure is wonderful though and while I debated whether this would be fan art or not, according to the rules set down by DA it doesnt seem to apply. Hopefully its presence under the scifi banner doesnt offend anyone for that reason.

oh shit. I loved that girl in the background. But i guess a imperial guard player as myself would just be shot. And this is a highly detailed piece o'art. The chaostarloooking thing on the bottom there.....or maybe its just my eyes. are also there. i see more skulls and details the more i look at it. the axe is greatly made and its all in all yet another reason to not try flee from the imperium.

Apparently not. And I am glad considering I still do not have it on my Elfwood page due to it being Fan art.

Not really on here-but on sites like Elfwood certain pics of mine require a seperate fan-art page or get refused. So my elfwood page has no Maeve since I mentioned my inspiration. :(

An exquisite amount of details... I really like how you work with shadow, using the strong contrast of black and white to create dimensions onto the drawing.

Very well done! :thumbsup:
