    Warhammer 40K covers

    Hey Everyone,

    I've been working with my friends at Games Workshop UK for a few years now doing covers for Warhammer 40K. I was a newcomer to the IP when first approached, but I've really grown to love the style. It's a really fun blend of futuristic and medieval motifs. The series has a really die hard and supportive fan base, so I hope I've been able to do the characters justice.

    I've posted some of my favorites (in order of release). There are still a few that have not been posted on the Black Library website, so I'll post updates as the newer titles are announced.

    Thanks very much for looking. Comments are most welcome!

    2008-2010, Photoshop CS3, CS4

    Hahaha...I do love me some big pink back-lit ears. I see you do too

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Im a fan of yours.

    My favorite is the silver Assault marine with the flowery detail on his armor.

    Keep up the great work.

    sick style! your rendering is top notch and super smooth. i do see a couple minor anatomy glitches, namely your (im guessing imperial guard) soldier holding his shotgun w/ bionic arm action and beasty skull on his belt. His flesh arm: the bicep to tricep ratio seems reveresed as from that angle it should be mostly bicep.. but maybe its a bit how you lighted it... in any case, minor stuff to an overwhelming awesome set of WH40k images. great work!

    Thanks for the great comments everyone

    Doom-Breath - I jump back and forth from the brush to the smudge tool (always hitting "b" then "r" then "b", etc. on my keyboard). I use a standard round brush for painting most of the time, but I use a bristled type brush for smudging just to add some paint stroke effects. I like this technique because it allows you to keep edges sharp in some areas, but soft and blended in others, all without much masking.

    I could talk photoshop all day!

    Thanks again

    These are great! Makes me think of what the Imperium must have looked like once--back when the armor was shiny and guns were fresh off the assembly line. I see that there's still plenty of wear and tear, but something about these pictures is very sharp and clear, and I like it.

    I almost forgot - one of my favorite covers. This was for Chris Roberson's "Sons of Dorn". I couldn't leave this guy out. It was arranged in a circular graphic on the cover, so I've just got it blacked out here.

    Thanks for looking!

    New image added!

    This one was just released on the Black Library website. It's my cover art for the upcoming audiobook "Labyrinth of Sorrows" by George Mann.

    I really love the first Space Marine, the filigree on the armour is a really neat touch. Very in keeping with the existing imagery.

    Awesome work man. I'm really impressed. If you don't mind me asking, how did you acquire your first commission for WarHammer? Did you send them samples or did they contact you after seeing your art somewhere?
