Space Marine from the Black Templars chapter. by cromArt
Space Marine from the Black Templars chapter.
This morning I did a coloured version of the black Templar space marine from last week. Few changes here and there. I don’t know much about this chapter but all I can say is that it’s a bad ass looking chapter. I’m really enjoying getting to know more about the WH40k world. Lexicanum has made everything so much easier for me and Im just happy to be able to know more from it.

Character design for games is one of my main source of comissions, so here is a peek at one of them.
Progress by cromArt

This is another piece I was working on from last year sketching and doing some research on some of my ancestors, the “Muiscas”.

As many people know the conquest of the Americas was a blood bath and one of the largest massacres in History wiping out entire cultures across the continent. 

To this day some people there and around the world still call this progress and celebrate the arrival of “civilisation”.

I finished this piece from some bullfighter studies I did at the end of last year. There is something daunting about how Toreros move that has a great level of grace and beauty which is then used for such horrible acts in the name of recreation and culture. 

As someone who was born in a Latin country I’m very familiar with the affair that bullfighting has with art, particularly with painting and also I still try to get my head around the fact that I was taken to my first bullfight when I was probably 7. 

Culture and tradition are very strange things that I’m glad we can grow from and evolve. 

ps. Hey first post of 2015!

I love arrows and everyone knows that. this went straight from my sketchbook to print form after a few amends and some amazing calligraphy by the talented and kick-ass Alice Mazzilli. 

I’ll have prints of this available at Thought Bubble this year.
