Wow this piece of art is awesome! I'm still trying to find out those details for you that I mentioned last month regarding the art apprenticeship with Games Workshop. I will be checking back soon my friend. I was wandering though, how long from planning to completion does a work of art like this normally take you to do?

My friend,
Thanks. The penciling took about 2 to 2 1/2 hours to complete. The research took about another hour. I found this cool site just on the terminator armour - http://www.tearsofenvy.com/termi-nation/
The inking took about 1 to 1 1/2 hours though.
Penciling the whole piece [posted after this - the angels of mars] with 3 terminators in them took 6 to 7 hours and inking another 3 hours. Note - if you look carefully at the second terminator armour [the middle one] i've also drawn the seal for the angels of mars - a real occult esoteric symbol.

Brilliant, I always look forward to seeing your new stuff, especially when you include pictures with such depth as the Angel of Mars icon! Great stuff mate
