Here’s a diversion from my current commissions, from my sketchbook of last year; on the left is my working out of a Fish-man mask I made for Hallowe’en (it ended up OK, not quite how I’d planned) and on the right page is my idea for a Demon Captain serving the Demon Lord of Pestilence.
Rather than having Demon’s represent the embodiment of a human emotion or fear (as Games Workshop has its Chaos Gods; Khorne is violence and slaughter, Slaanesh is unfettered decadence and perversion and so on) I imagined my Demon Lord’s (or Lady’s) as having a particular fetish or obsession that reflected their attitude to warfare and conquest. So my previous two Demon Lords have been a melee-fighting Warlord and a multi-armed magic using Mage Lord. These are some ideas I’ve been sketching for a Demon Lord whose interests are in biological warfare, diseases and poisons. More of these when I get time!
