Commissioned work

This is the final drawing I did for Vulkan, the pose is more dynamic and I added the head of the spear on photoshop.

You have to finish the Primarchs

 

Why? Because you do them so well. And Your version of Vulkan looks way better than the new Forge World version

Right. Vulkan. Primarch of the Salamanders.

Here we go:
Found on a volcanic planet Nocturne, whose civilization lies in smithery, Vulkan grew to be a master of the forge. When found by the Emperor, he challenged him to a contest. Nothing much on the first two contest, but on the third, they're supposed to forge a weapon, and with it, kill the largest predator they can find, a fiery Salamander. Vulkan killed the largest one he can find, but on his way, he was caught in a fissure. Trapped between letting go his catch or fall to his death, Vulkan was too stubborn to let go of his prize, but try as he might, he can't lift both himself and the catch. Later the Emperor arrived, carrying his Salamander and it was obvious to Vulkan that his catch was far larger than his. However, seeing Vulkan's predicament, the Emperor throw away his catch, using it as a bridge through the lava river, and then rescued the Primarch, AND his catch, leaving his Salamander to melt on the lava. Upon return, technically, the Emperor lost, but Vulkan accede and remarked any man who would choose life over pride is worthy of service. Ever since then, the Space Marine Legion led by Vulkan was named Salamanders, in honor of that event. After the Horus Heresy, Vulkan vanished. But not before leaving behind 9 artifacts of his creation, spread across the Universe. They say when his chapter found all relics, he will return.

The Salamanders are a fiery chapter. Heavily influenced by the local fire based religion in their home planet of Nocturne called the Promethean cult. By Space Marine standard, due to some genetical mutation on their geneseed, they're not a very fast warriors (though still relatively fast compared to normal human). So they make use of many heavy weapons: heavy bolter, multi melta, terminator armor, other tanking units but few rapid assault capability. The Land raider Redeemer, with two firestorm cannon on sponson, and a assault cannon on hull, is credited to this chapter.

Hope it helps.

The huge two handed "cannon" in the shape of a roaring dragon that was made for him as a gift by Ferrus Manus.

I''ll quote the book(from the Horus Heresy series) as best I can remember...

"Hundreds of thousands of Space Marines, Millions of Tanks, Thousands of Titans, never before, in one place, at one time, had such a panoply of war ever clashed. And yet, over the din of such a battle, one could still hear the distinctive "BOOM" of Vulkan's Cannon."

It went something like that a believe.

Its so odd too, I have NEVER seen or even heard of someone doing an illustration of Vulkan's "Boom Gun" as my friend calls it.

Seems like something like that would be something that people would WANT to draw.

We're talking about a CANNON*, a gun so big that even a Primarch(one of the bigger ones too) had to use both hands to fire and load it. The shells weighed so much that the magazine had to be placed on TOP of the gun, to allow them to simply fall into the chamber!

is vulkan related to 40k because this looks like a chaos marine

I assume that you are asking if Vulkan is a loyalest, well yes, not all loyalest look so clean and shinny, and Chaos marines carry the marks of chaos on them that are so iconic and can't be mistaken.

actually my brain was not working and was asking if it's actually 40k related. i also don't know many of the other primarchs in the 40k universe besides russ because of my pup list but right after i posted asking it hit me and i couldn't fix what i said

Like your render of the 'Drake'.
It looks very good, but a suggestion?
No clawed feet? looks kinda weird.

Hey thanx :D
well as you may know I will probably change 80% of the drawing when I start coloring it :P
I will change the position of the right leg... its bothering me when i look at it >_> but yeah if clawed boots are not working then I will just change them.

I think, it is the best scetch jf all four. But in my opinion shoulder pads are too big. Warhammer is a Realm of Big Shoulder Pads, I know, but sometimes its better to make them relatively small comaring to the figure to give accent to it's huge size.

saint-max Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Hey thanx :D
I agree, and as usual I draw shoulder pads way too big, and once I start coloring I re-size them :P similar to the sister of battle sketch.
