Nice Aspiring Champion. You can tell his affiliation by his colors, red, gold, and black are the Khornate colors, and World Eaters follow Khorne....so...my guess is he's a World Eater.

Great Detailing, right down to the blood on the sword and the misty carnage in the background. Looks like a character from one of my son's rpg's.

Congrats on graduation Erik! Yes, there is a virtual army of NIU grads working in SciFi/Fantasy art and comic books, mostly because of Mark A. Nelson who used to teach there. Its amazing how a good teacher can make such an impact.

First things first, YEAH MAIDEN!

Besides that, I have been a fan of your work for a while. I just read your bio on your web site and noticed you come from the NIU gang. I'm still shocked at some of the great work I discover is made from past graduates. Three more weeks until graduation for me, then I guess I get fed to the lions? I just thought I'd pop a comment in here and let you know you have been an influence for me.

Yes, I scan in my pencil sketch and digitally paint over that.

Well, I do like Iron Maiden! The resemblance wasn't intentional though.
