Commission: Demon Prince Horus by saint-max Commission: Demon Prince Horus by saint-max
Greetings friends and followers
This commission was done for :iconabrahell:
The title sums it all. I wanted something more organic looking rather than a demon in armor. My idea here is that after Horus killed his father he was mortally wounded, but he was saved by the Chaos Gods turning him to a Demon Prince. The old body is still in there intact to the new chaos flesh of the demon.

Hope you like it, C&c are more than welcome.

Cheers.

Interesting look for Horus, if he managed to survive fighting the emperor.

You know the funny part in the lore about Demon Prince Horus?

It was said that, in the alternate future where Horus actually managed to slay the emperor and then he Achieved daemonhood... that's when he actually freed himself from the grips of chaos completely... before he, and his army, went into rampage that will bring Humanity (and Chaos) to an end extinction.

Usually I sleep on the idea for a couple of days before I start any sketching. there are always things that the commissioner want to see in the image, so those will stay and I go and do a quick research to see what I can build around them. For this one I knew that I wanted to build it on top of the final battle between Horus and the Emperor, if the Emperor got saved by the golden throne, then Horus will probably be saved by the Chaos Gods. Hmmm I hope this helps ;)

I'd like to believe that the Ruinous Powers would not let the greatest traitor simply die.

Horus died and the emperor is forever on the golden throne, all the traitors are dead or a demon prince (unless your alpha legion) and all the loyalist are dead or missing (unless your the ultra marine guy then your just in a stasis tube slowly dieing or slowly healing) but like the concept would be interesting of that happened.

:iconsaint-max:
saint-max Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, but after thinking about it, I believe that even if Horus did kill the emperor, this should eventually lead to him taking his own life, right? so he will never actually be a demon prince.

icewolfaspect Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2013
well from what i hear if the emperor died and horus lives from what was told to the alpha legion primarchs is he would be struck with so much guilt of killing his father that he would destroy the chaos gods or something like that, but the emperor was only wounded and horus died so we get what we have.

:iconsaint-max:
saint-max Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, as I remember, guilt will kill Horus and once he is dead chaos will go into a slop until its totally destroyed.
