Why do i feel like some the parts in your picture were left incomplete, hence become somewhat 'out of tune' with the rest. Like the sun behind Dorn's head, and that pair of eagles at his chest. You could add a few details into like a light relief or something eagle claws or something... But that's just me.
Personally, I think it would have been more devastating if Dorn had fallen to Chaos rather than Horus. Sure, Horus was the Emperor's favorite and all that, but Dorn was THE apex of devout loyalty, even Lorgar was jealous of the guy.
yes. backfire is actually a soft word:he looks is brother move to chaos,fight in the more horrible battle in terra. he got troll by perturabo and lost part of the legion for that(and of course. the troll become a demon primarch) he almost fight with guillman and lost to abbadon.....ABBADON for the emperor sake! the guy who fail 13 times.
well least is not like mortarion or magnus. especialy magnus.
A bit, yes, even though he looks balanced, to me. I think the problem might be their height, it makes them too wide (this sounds strange). But I wanted to keep the shape that John Blanched used on his Dorn concept.
I forgot to put this on the piece's description, but the writing on the powerfist - above what's supposed to be the Emperor's face - is the Emperor's promise to the Chaos Legions:
"They are sorely misguided if they think the Warp has the power to overcome my Will. My vengence shall haunt them across all of time, they shall never know peace. They have earned for themselves only enternal damnation."
Badass to the extreme. This is because my inspiration for Dorn's pose came from him facing a few heretics during the Siege of Terra, and he's showing them what they've got themselves into.
