Hey guys!

Back to normal, eh?

So here is my new piece featuring Alpharius Omegon, the twin primarch(s) of the Alpha Legion. This was a privately commissioned piece, so if you have any interests in having your own painting made, please send me a note!

Looking good! But they look too much like normal humans in armour... always envision Primarchs being much more powerfully built.

It makes sense though why they look kind of "small". They are the "babies" of the brothers, the youngest of the bunch made. Plus they are each half of a soul, so they are smaller then normal A. for their age, and B. because they're not a unified being.

C:

Makes me wonder if they ever argue like Bioshock's Lutece Twins.

" No no no, I said that the white armor works better with the black blade."

" That's impossible. I heard you distinctly say the black armor with the white blade."

" We'll never find common ground on this, will we?"

" Not unless you want to wear grey for the rest of our lives."

Hi, what resolution did you paint this in? Just wondering if painting big and shrinking it down helps blur out the brush stroke artifacts when blending...the round brush is driving me nuts with trying to smooth blend with it lol, figure its just more practice needed, but i was curious

Artwork is totally badass. Canonically, though, aren't they a little more dark-skinned? Lexicanum has them as 'copper skinned'.
No matter, canonicity is a background issue anyways. Like I said, the armor is SICK

Nice work with the characters.

As for the downsides, the background needs a bit of work I think. The characters looks a bit 'forced' into the background.
But yeah it's a speed pain nonetheless...

Fair critique. The client didn't negotiate for a background, so I threw a quick one in just to keep things somewhat flush. Otherwise, they would just be sitting on a white backdrop.

Well done :D Before reading the Black Library books about them, the XXth Legion was the least interesting to me from all the Chaos Marines Legions. Now they seem to be my favourite. The twins are smart, unlike the other Primarchs. I wonder what happened to them after the end of the Heresy. Especially after the last book with them in, The Primarchs. What could possibly be the third option mentioned there? Did they have a suitable double in the battle of Escador, after the death of Sheed Ranko? Or even is it possible what I read in a thread in Warseer - that maybe on Escador Omegon has infiltrated the Ultramarines as Guiliman and now the Primarch in stasis the Ultramarines guard is actually not theirs at all? :D

Superb quality - as always, they both look awesome! Just one little thing that bothers me, the atmospheric effects looks uneven, the foremost character's foremost leg doesnt seem touched by any atmosphere while the foreground cliffs seems to be, and the foremost character's rear leg looks like it has a bit more atmosphereish fade than the second character's foremost leg. Other than that - really great work, looking forward to seeing more of your stuff! :D
