Sons of Corax by MajesticChicken Sons of Corax by MajesticChicken
Well this is it, my final colorization for a very long time. I apologize in advance for any incongruities in the pic, I had to do quite a bit of restoration work before I went about coloring.

Anyway, it's the Raven Guard going ballistic while night becomes day, as such I went with a wider color palette than usual. Oh and as per usual on pics of this size, expanding your browsing window is needed to get a more in-depth look.

Original artist is Karl Kopinski.

Love the librarian on the right being all; PROMOTIONS!

Also a wide colour palate only enhances the detail brought out, never shy away from pouring more intricaties into 40k artwork, so you can watch details, while you watch details.

Damn impressive you were able to pick out the Librarian, his head gear isn't exactly standard issue and the blues sort of meld with everything else. It's like a Where's Waldo 40k Edition.

It's a shame this will be the last one for a while. It was always nice to come on here and see some new work from you on these pictures. All of the colorizations were very well done. New ones will be missed.

Huh, i've scene the uncolored version of this and i was under the impression that they were ultramarines.

Out of curiosity, what makes you say raven guard?
