Light of the Emperor by kingmong Light of the Emperor by kingmong
Hail brothers and sisters,

It has been awhile since I have any updates, was focusing on this piece since than and it has been a rewarding process.

Was given comments that I should spend more time into my works to take it to the next level, so I decided not to rush this time.

I have always wanted to paint a Grey Knight piece as i had a really deep impression of them after reading the novel. Ben counter's work has inspired me ever since and I finally have something to show.

Maybe I will be working on the Sisters of Battle next, haven't read the novel by James Swallow but would get it for inspirations. Or do you guys have any recommendations for Sisters stories I can hook up to?

Till than,
The Emperor Protects.

Light of the Emperor by *kingmong is about a powerful knight marching through the battle field. The aura emitted by that character is very well displayed! ( Featured by gucken )

I think your style give the best 'feel' of a warhammer40k Grey knight. "Holy" and "Cold" at the same time.

iI'am the hammer, I'am the edge of his sword, the point of his spear. I'am the gauntlet about his arm. I'am the sword as he is my shield, I'am his wrath as he is my shield. I'am the hammer as he is my shield. the Emperor protects

Congrats on the DD.

Myself, I think you should do a member of the Inquisition.

Preferrably a non-fanservice woman. Too few of them, IMHO.

Anyway, well done.
