Imbrian Arts: The King of Ghouls
Adrift posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingHere is my King of Ghouls. My goal with the miniature was to create a skin tone that was indicative of an ancient and powerful undead horror. This ghoul has survived countless challenges from untold parties of adventurers. Primitive stitches hold together damage to his skin, whilst unnatural healing takes place underneath it's surface; hinted at by his menacing eyes. "It's skin, is that thing alive or dead...?" - Alric the cleric (shortly before death) The pair of ravens, his liaisons, his scouts, and his scavenging companions...one of whom carries the eyeball trophy of a recent challenger. Stoically one raven watches for challengers while the other celebrates the trophy. I wanted the NMM on the scythe and his little bits of boot armor and belt to look well-aged while still hinting at their unbelievable worth and functional status. I opted to use static grass on the base in conjunction with painted earth and rocks that compliment his overall color scheme. The goal of the grass is to juxtapose this powerful undead by contrasting his long-lived undeath with the appearance of surroundings that are fresh and healthy. There's a beautiful piece of AD&D 2nd ed artwork, I think from the Monstrous Compendium with a unicorn(?) and a skull or something like that and I had that idea in the back of my head. The colors I used include only Reaper MSP: dark elf shadow, jungle moss, faded khaki, dusky skin, pure black, dark skin, woodstain, maggot white, driftwood, blood red, magenta, auburn shadow, blue-grey paint sample, misty grey, pure white, oiled leather, mahogany, sun yellow. From the Imbrian Arts Kickstarter tag: The King of Ghouls- Once a mighty warrior, now he roams the earth, thrice damned and undying, tormented by the echoes of his past life and mocked by his ravens "Gone! Gone!"
