A true surprise when this appeared in the inbox.
I have been admiring the multiple Slayer Sword wielding veteran dane’s brushwork ever since opening my first White Dwarf. Last year Jakob’s Eldar in the Invitational and recently in his blog have certainly affected our own xenos endeavours. It’s utterly thrilling to share now in plain images how this hobby is a shared discussion through time and space.
And now, finally, the stunningly atmospheric vision from Jakob:
“This is the direction I wanted my eldar to go in the first place. Trying to achive a kind of magical texture. Something akind to stroposcopic light. But my choice of craftworld colours worked against it in the beginning taking a classic turn which did seem cool at the time. However, doing the technically clean Farseer in magical and dark colour formed the path, and now – doing the Shadow Seer – I think it is just about there. A little touch of technical stuff (checked leggings), a good combo of colours, and a vivid and agressive touch of contrast and sponged-on randomness.
