Seeing as I am known for my apparent love of Ahriman, and I have been asked about the range of cloaks I have painted him. I decided a post here would be better than an easily lost thread. So, here were are: Ahriman and his many, many cloaks of space.
Ahriman number 1 – this was the one that sparked it all off about eighteen months ago.
This second one is the one I did for the tutorial. I thought that would be it then, but oh how I was wrong…
This version happened during the paint-a-thon I did. 12 hours of non stop painting in order to raise money for luekemia. He now lives on my desk at work.
Ahriman number 4 was his 40K incarnation. I painted a vortex on his cloak and thought I would be done with the miniature. Again, I could not have been more wrong. The next four Ahirman I painted were for the diorama for Golden Demon.
This took a long time to construct, earned me a commended entry and was a lot of fun to build. The Eye of Terror on his cloak was tricky to get right, but I surprised even myself with it.
Ahriman number 9 was a commission from a good friend, who wanted a star being sucked into a black hole on his cloak. So, here he is in all his shiny glory!
Let’s have some images of those cloaks all next to each other.
Other appreciation things I want to share are some of the amazing pictures people have drawn for me and sent in:

Last, but not least, I have to pop up one of my favourites from Abaddon and Teal:

Wow! Amazing work on the capes
Thank you. These were done over about eighteen months so I have had some time to perfect the technique.

This is a very cool showcase. It’s pretty inspiring and as well as my own intended effort (the twins are sitting in my cabinet in the hobby que), I’ve seen other people on Twitter have their own go at it! Which is really cool.
I think inspiring someone else with your work has to be one of the highest points of aspiration… Apart from selling your work, which I guess is pretty importent for a commission painter. 😄
Well done Deb!
