More of Grim's Orcs

Recommended Posts

I decided to start a new thread for the various other Orcs I'm going to be painting over the next few months. I'll probably do some comparison work here too. This way I can have accurate tags. If I do any more Marauders or Swordsmen, I'll update that thread.

 

Orc Berserker - full shading treatment. I plan to do three more of these with different painting techniques.

This looks really good so far, I'm looking forward to seeing more. I'm painting my orcs right now and will be following this thread.

Took me a while, but I got another Orc done.  I actually finished it Sunday, but I haven't been able to log in all week.  C'est la vie!

 

Very similar in coloration to my Berserker:

Looking good.  A little more shadow on the red kilt/skirt would bring it up a notch.

You could use a green wash for this. I'm finding green shadows for red look fantastic. ::):

I may well try that.  I do agree that the skirts don't have a lot of contrast - I did some shading on it, but it's definitely very subtle and doesn't read outside of a few inches.

Just on the subject of odd shading colours, I've used a little bit of thinned violet or purple to shade and desaturate the shadows on my greenskins; but I'm going for a lot darker look than this.

 

Nice clean work! Personally I think the deepest shadows want a little more depth, but this is good, solid work nonetheless.

The shade coat on these is Christmas Wreath, so it actually is pretty dark.  I think the flash and the background lightened them up some, I may well take new pictures with a different background.

Here's the Spearman again with the green wash on the skirts.  I put him against a white background, but he's still a bit washed out.  Probably the flash.  C'est la vie:
