Warhammer 40k art has a unique feel. Big supermen in a gothic setting marching forward, knee deep in dead alien creatures or spikey version of themselves.
This demands a specific look. A specific way of representing the Space Marines and their might against the galactic onslaught.
The Pitch for artists to submit goes something like this:
“Space Marine scene in which he is facing a group of Orks, with one sneaking into him in the form of an ambush”
Below, we will explore several artists that tried their hand drawing exactly that – Only a couple got hired by Games Workshop!
