Ghool Posted June 13, 2011 Share Posted June 13, 2011 I switched my golds from P3 to GW on this model, and spent a lot more time getting them smooth. In addition, I did stuff I usually don't do on many of my models; freehand. It's time-consuming, but I figured if I was going to enter a competition, I had better go all out. I re-posed this thing 4 times before I was finally satisfied, and re-built the spear mid-painting, and after getting the final pose where I wanted it, I felt it needed something more to get a more dynamic feeling from the model. This is the second time I have ever sculpted cloth, and I think the flag came out a little thick. At least now I have a much better idea of how to do this sort of thing. I re-built all the pistons in both arms with brass rod. I had to cut off the left arm coupling, and re-sculpt the ball joint to get the shield arm to sit that far back. I also had to add a piston to the left leg, as moving it out that far from the body left a huge gap on the inner thigh. The spear was simply extended and the haft re-sculpted over top. I hollowed out the central post in the torso to get it to lean back farther, so it wasn't so hunched over, and the had to re-fill a large portion of it. In all, it was quite a bit of work to get it as close to the artwork pose as I could. Comments and Critique is always welcome.
