The VIII Primarch by saint-max The VIII Primarch by saint-max
Konrad Curze, The Night Haunter son of the Emperor of Mankind.

----------------------------
Final update:

Most of the work was done to the background and armor, painting the blood pool along with the rocks. the armor received a lot of touches here and there, fixing the colors and adding textures.
I added the black halo as a final touch, i like halos on unholy beings (or maybe holy in this case, we would never know)

I enjoyed painting this piece :D
Hope you like it, c&c are more than welcome. :D

Yeah, a lot of Primarchs have odd backgrounds behind their names. For example Lion El' Johnson os named after a poet who wrote the poem "Dark Angel"

any tips on how to make this ripples effect?

Or on how to pick saturated colors that still work together harmoniously?
Reply
:iconsaint-max:
saint-max Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
hmmmmmmm
u have to set up the shadow and light and reflection before working on the ripples. once u think u got the surface to reflect everything correctly, then just use the ripple filter that comes with photoshop, it give u a really nice results. the key is to set up the surface to match the environment.

As for colors, hmmmm am not sure :P i dont follow any kind of system, I change things as I paint. I got a video of me speed painting, I just need to edit it, that might give u an idea of the process ;)
