Fulgrim, Emperor's Children by luffie Fulgrim, Emperor's Children by luffie
This can be considered quite an old work, the sketch was done way back in 2010, I can't believe I only manage to finish it now, but thankfully, its done. The design was actually based on the Warhammer 40k Horus Heresy trading card game, they have a glimpse of Fulgrim in it. I like the design, yet I find the one on the cards are too simplistic, but obviously the design cannot be too intricate either as it was still on the 30k era.

So I went to add a bit of extra flair too it, without going too intricate in details. I envisioned the Slaanesh blade myself as I have no reference. The weapon has its mark on it, and is emanating an eerie glow that is supposed to be Slaanesh's essence. The blade shouldn't look too demonic as well, as I'd like to think Fulgrim wouldn't exactly use an 'extremely' demonic sword, but he would definitely use a lavishly crafted one, so designing the balance between elegant and demonic was slightly tricky. By the way, on his left hip, there's a bolt pistol, for long distance attack just in case :)

Wanted to add some vehicles in the skies, but decided that it would be too crowded. Anyway, this was all about Fulgrim, the rest.... are just decorations :p

Hope Games Workshop can hire me to do another Fulgrim, then I'll promise and do a legendary one :) Fave it and spread the word guys! FULL VIEW TO SEE THE CORRUPTION..

He should have checked to see if that sword had any strange properties before just taking it out of some alien temple

You would think he wouldn't touch a sword that looks like it can and will lick him.

I like everything except for the short hair, Fulgrim has always been depicted as having very long (at least by space marine standards) milk white hair, most pictures I've seen of him his hair reaches his waist or at least his sternum. apart from that though it is a very good picture

The first thought that comes into my head when I see this.

Fulgrim: "You found me beautiful once."
Imperial Army Trooper: "Pal, you got really ugly!"

Great job by the way.

OMG love this!! insta fav :) Fulgrim is my second favourite Primarch, after Lorgar. This drawing is exactly how i imagine fulgrim, it's so well drawn and i like how the Slaanesh essence from the sword is creeping up his arm, as he ended up being corrupted by it in the end :(
scorpio-bos Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist

This is one of the best Fulgrim fanarts that I've ever seen. He looks like the most beautiful of Primarchs, yet his face is done wonderfully to convene that he will annihilate the everloving shit out of you if you get in the way. Great job on this one.

I'm wondering, were you ever planning perhaps on doing the other Primarchs, say Konrad Curze?

I really like how you did his face and hair. And of course the gold trim on his armor.
