Inquisitor Retinue - Vet. Guardsman by DarkMechanic Inquisitor Retinue - Vet. Guardsman by DarkMechanic
Decided last minute that'll I do a series of these, each detailing a member of an Inquisitor's Retinue (my favourite thing about the 40k Lore).

Been feeling a bit sad recently, my drawing hasn't been up to scratch, and I also do a lot of throw-away work, like storyboarding and concept stuff for advertising. Getting paid jobs is great, but when you literally just dump everything into the recycling bin after it's handed in, often without even a word of thanks, it's a bit disheartening, especially after few years.

So I'm going back to basics with these, going straight to ink and cutting out the various stages of roughs that have started to make up my design process. I will do a light pencil for basic outline, then the rest is just me and my mistakes! It's been a while since I actually enjoyed drawing.

Yeah, doing throwaway stuff can get a bit draining, need to indulge sometimes and create things to be really proud of. Satisfyingly dynamic stuff here, look forward to seeing the whole retinue. :meow:
