Magnus the Red - Golden Demon Entry

Hello hello hello,


I've been very very busy painting Magnus the Red and here is the finished Primarch himself!! This will be a Golden Demon Entry for me at some point, I'd like to enter him into the Nov 25th Golden Demon but I'm struggling to get a lift up to Nottingham from Bristol so it seems unlikely right now. 

I don't think he is good enough to place in the top three of any Golden Demon Event, but I'm quite confident that he would make it as a finalist. 

















Thoughts and opinions on his painting and chances in any painting competitions is always welcome! I'm very pleased with him, Magnus feels like a real step forward in the right direction towards getting a Golden Demon Trophy of any colour. 

Peace out,

Rob

  3. Very impressive work! I particularly like the disc, it has a cool cloud-like effect to it.

  4. Rob, love the muscle and sinew effect on the flesh, and the NMM golds on the Falchion. Awesome green glow effect on the other hand and wrist, great work. Now I cannot fathom how much work went into this, it’s awesome but the only area where I can offer constructive feedback would be the transition of the wings is the only area where I think it shows the brush work rather than a smooth fade? Without an airbrush I’m not sure how to achieve a smooth transition finish perhaps only advice I could possibly offer is “that’s flippin awesome and better than I can do by far!” I don’t think you need a smooth transition either, but where colour changes occur, maybe follow the ‘V’ of the feather filaments? Best of luck, I think you did a great job!

  7. Great work Rob! Though I'm a little disappointed you didn't go down the "nipple horns" route.

    2. Me too, love those pecs, but I guess I love the NMM too.
