Corax by Noldofinve Corax by Noldofinve
Corax, Raven Guards' primarch. Sadly I had only some photographs of Corax's miniatures for references. So I have no idea about his canonical appearance.

corax is the "baby brother" of the Primarchs in metaphor i mean, he was the light hearted one with many traits of immaturity but when he went to war he was very tactical and stoic. i still don;t thnik he commited suicide. corax has milk white skin and i mena MILK white it's his major feature.

The colour of skin is, of course, very bright and memorable but face features are also very important.
I can't agree with your statement about "baby brother" and immaturity of Corax. His life before unifying with his father and brothers wasn't the life of a kid or delicate person. And where is Corax's suicide mentioned?

i can't honestly remember which image this is refering to but most Corax images i've apporved of so, i'll just list what i do know through extensive research.

1. Corax has dark hair and very prominent eyebrows, also dark this is only highlited even more by the milk white of his skin. he looks intimidating and fierce and is when he wants/ has to be and is stoic (meaning he can endure great hardship no doubt due to his childhood). he is one of thsoe guys who even when they raise their eyeborws to the highest he still looks like he's frowning.

2. when i said baby-brother i just meant how he is when there is no battle going on and when he is with his brothers. i meant this metaphorically and in no way as an insult, i'm the youngest of three myself. it is said Corax got along with most brohters and was light hearted when with them. it is alos noted that Sanguinius gave tise long dictance message to manus and Vulkan before Istvaan V to 'look after him'.

3. being from a world that was ensalved Corax believes in equality. it's the reason he hates the idea of warmaster, never wears capes or sashes or any other marks of superiority. in his mind he was raised by slaves and became as great as he is by being taught by them so clearly rank holds no importance(if u can become a great leader when raised by slaves n kick the butt of the enslavers it proves authority has no meaning)

4.i have the utmost respect for Corax and his legion above all otehr so nothnig i say would demerite him in any way. but if u read his stroy u will learn that he supposedly commited suicide from guilt after creating those freaks. he took a ship and drove straight into the eye of terror leaving the message "never more" from the poem "The Raven" it is believed he commitied suiced though no one is certain.

Outstanding! I really love how you've drawn the Primarchs! :+fav:

Always wandered what Corax might look like, since my own chapter, the Eagles of Kai are a successor chapter of the Raven Guard. :)
