In the hope to keep things going on here – after leaving them to go stale for a while – I thought I would share this sketch with everyone.
It is my Dark Heresy character, Nihilius, who I originally drew back in 2013 so this is something of a redraw too. Or will be when I get around too finishing it.
I might line it digitally, print it out and try some traditional colours – I am really not confident with my traditional inking stuff at the moment cause it has been an age! But it’s be awesome to be able to colour some of my own artwork with my coloured pencils again!
Anyway, Nihilius’ outfit design was inspired by the Boer War and the film Zulu. I wanted something a bit different – he is a Telepath Psyker and mind reads/rapes people and I wanted a look for him that didn’t go with his very ‘Grim dark’ setting/nature.
