"Lo, a shadow of horror is risen 
In Eternity! Unknown, unprolific,
Self-clos'd, all-repelling: what demon
Hath form'd this abominable void,
This soul-shudd'ring vacuum? Some said
"It is Urizen." But unknown, abstracted,
Brooding, secret, the dark power hid. "

Chapter 1, Urizen.

I believe this is my fourth Lorgar, painting him felt like revising an old friend. I went over my original notes and drafted a new set for the Word Bearers before this project. It allowed me to re-read First Heretic and Betrayer which is never a hard ship. The major difference between this and the older versions is the freehand on the cloak. Instead of a literal image taken from Blake I recreated the strange Colchisian cruciform found on his armour. 

The hardest part of any Lorgar commission will be depicting his golden skin. Metallics are notoriously hard to photograph and do not have a great range when it comes to defining the features of a face. Shadows and highlights change in different light conditions so keeping control of these things is difficult. 

Expect to see plenty of more Primarch Commissions rolling in over the next couple of months.

  2. Your painting is as always top notch, but this is just such a boring sculpt. Almost a waste of your time and talent on this.
