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.

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:

      I totally haven’t looked up this character’s name. He’s great. He’s an orc. Bones 4. Blah blah blah. 
       
      Anyways, I stopped painting orc-face mc-Orc doodle the orc prematurely out of painting fatigue. I had lots of other shiny new bones to paint. It’s a great sculpt and he deserves respect though. 
       
      So let’s try this! If you’ve got improvements to suggest I’ll implement them and post a new picture. It could be fun and you’ll motivate a fellow nerd to “brush up” and turn a decent job into a great job - which is one place I could use encouragement. You can of course call it done anytime you like, but sometimes you know the figure needs more. This will be a fun exercise.

      Hello everyone.
      Since my old faithful camera is definitely out of order i have to take pictures with my cheap cell phone.
      the result is disappointing.
      but it doesn't matter, here there are are my last minis.

      Thanks to a friend's encouragement I finished my Orctober project just in time.  
      It may only be one lonely Shaman but he still counts!
       
      Technically also my first Bones V miniature painted since he was one of the monthly preview promos.

      I tried making them similar, yet dissimilar in a variety of small ways.
       
      They all have irregular freckles on the shoulders and upper arms, and I painted the horns light to dark, or dark to light.

      Tre Manor is still working to fulfill his Warbands of the Dark Beyond across the pond, but I painted up the zombies to be a higher grade of zombie for my dnd game. I got the chaos bases at ReaperCon and wanted them to look like they were fueled with necrotic energy further powering the zombies!!
