Welcome to Librarium Online!
Really matters which one you are talking about. Alex v2-the first pic took a hidious amount of time. 14-20 hours sort of time.

This is beyond belief.
Could you give me the secrets of the trade? Seriously. I've been wanting to do that style of drawing for awhile now?
If you go colour I'll do anything for you to draw a character of mine... I'll give you money... lol *reps*

As for my secrets. Let me think.
1) The character is 2d and needs to be expressed in 3d. Use heavy shading to give him depth. I know some art styles dont lend themselves well to this but... 40k especially is a "heavy" world. It needs the deep dark creveces and the near white peaks. Also adds a classical feel.
2) Shading-remember different materials shade differently. Metalllics and cloth..flesh and stone. Come up with a shading style for each.
3) Understand the man you draw. You need to have a background-a story for him. He needs to arrive at his gear for a reason. Alexander is redeeming his Chapter for a great sin in the past, he takes the most dangerous of missions and fears some external force will weaken him-thus he is covered in wards. He beleives in the power of such things. The Dark Sororitus (pic 2) is concerned with her beauty and womanhood-what she put away to become what she was. She wears effigies to her own former beauty and hates those that retain theirs. To her all things beautiful must be re-explained clinically, re-examined and controlled.
Very nice, those look like they belong in the Codexes...

outstanding. Not over the top. Phenomenal use of lines. Excellent proportions.
Amazing attention to detail.
