Adrift

Imbrian Arts: Blacksands Orc

Recommended Posts

Wow. I love this mini, it's the one that initially pulled me into the Imbrian Arts Kickstarter. And your paint job is fantastic Adrift! Like others I love the skin tone, and those trophe skulls look great too. The gem is perfect. Also, thanks for listing the paints you used; much appreciated!

Thank you! I intentionally wanted the elf head to look like he'd had his nose broken pre-mortem, and wanted each of the heads to have their own level of coloration so that they appeared varied in the amount of time they'd been severed from their respective bodies.

Great work on a great sculpt. I really love the muted nature of the skin tone and the metal and leather stuff is nice.

 

My main criticism would be that the metal skull really jumps out with the high values and warmer colors. It dominates an otherwise interesting paint job and distracts my eye a bit much. And the handle thingies sticking out of it are a bit too close to the skin tone and seem to fade into the chest a bit.

 

Nit-picking, though. Very nice work as usual!

Good call Cash! The skull is such a dominant piece of the sculpt that I had some choices to make with respect to what to do with it. I decided to showcase it bc I figured that he'd be wearing it specifically to stand out! Maybe it's too much of my role-play brain messing with my art....

I hear that. One of the things I've been struggling with is balancing the idea I'm shooting for thematically against the realities of a cohesive paint job.

 

People loved my gravedigger, who I painted with a very strict and limited OSL for a reason...but it's also the main complaint I got about him.

The sculpt kinda showcases that skull too.  He is standing there going "HEY CHECK OUT MY SWEET BELT BUCKLE"

 

Yup! It's funny bc when I backed the KS he was one of my absolute favorites right off the bat, then I got him and was like, "whoa, the skull is huge!' I wouldn't change anything about him at this point! Maybe I'll get another one...

      Hello all, I have painted the Bones Black Jade Fire Champion. I went more vibrant than grim for her as an orc and also interpreted her dagger as being in a sheathe until I realized that it probably wasn't, given her stone axe, but oh well.

      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.

      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.

      Converted this one by using an avatars of war pit fighter body and added some greenskins bits (sword, head, etc) and greenstuff. Painted him to be used as an orc boss in my orc warband. Hope you like him!
