So here's my Ogre Command.
While I crop photos, please look at this photo of my assembled horde, representing the Forgotten Realms mercenary group known as the chill. I still have orcs, hobgoblins, and more ogres to paint, so this group photo will get updated periodically in the appropriate show off thread.
Edited for WIP link.
Here is my take on Narthrax. He's a gift for our local Domestic Violence Shelter's art auction. I ended up leaving him with a gloss sealer due to weather issues, so he didn't photo as well. Also, I think it was still wet when I took these. Sigh.
I love this sculpt- he's just so dynamic and the wings are awesome to paint. The details Julie puts into these guys in terms of animal influences are fantastic. So much personality!
I wanted some color contrast, so I put some of the blue-green as a reflection in his under belly
I love using red and green together. The colors for the whole thing are walnut brown, carnival purple, mahogany brown, brilliant blue and sun yellow. I did use some white for the mouth as well.
The base is done with hot glue, glitter, greenstuff, some extra weapons and sand/rocks. I pinned his tail to the base to get him to stand straighter and nailed the right foot into the base for extra strength- I greenstuffed scales over the nail. you can see where the middle foot area is "thicker" from the nail.
he ended up more yellow than I wanted, but I ran out of time to go back and wash in the midtones. Next time.
Enjoy! C&C always welcome and I love answering questions!!
For my online business, we cut lots of wood and leave lots of pieces in the scrap bin. Well, we just processed a beautiful seasoned branch of oak and cut it every which way right up to the very last piece, the spot where it was cut from the body of the tree.
For some reason I spent a few minutes looking at the piece and decided to bring it with me to clean up. As you can see in the pics it cleaned up but I wasn't sure what to do with it.
So, I had just posted an ash burl to my website and suggested in the description making it into a treasure horde for your dragon. And I realized what this piece was... a broken column sitting amongst the dwarven horde lost to a dragon.
As you can see below, I painted the middle to look like solid rock. I left it slightly exaggerated so the paint could be seen under the gold and artifacts I was planning to place on it.
Next step, add the booty to the piece. Which is going to require making some treasure bits, golden and silvery pieces with a smattering of platinum. The last question is, being a dwarven treasure, would you use coins, bullion nuggets, or both for the piled mass?
