Pingo

A Two-Tone Boerogg Blackrime, Frost Giant Jarl

Recommended Posts

This is awesome!  I love this piece, your style is so beautiful.  I love the urgency of your brush work.  The slashes of paint impart a lovely efect.

Another gorgeous piece, Pingo. I'm amazed at the range of colors produced with just three paints: from the bright blues and oranges of (I assume) the pure colored pigments to that purpley-gray sword. If I might make a slight criticism, however, the face seems to get lost. My eyes are drawn to the bright white and orange-browns of his decorative teeth and skulls, while the face is somewhat hidden in a sea of icy blue. I'm not really sure what the solution would be. Your Svetlana had that mask done in warm colors to draw the eye, but Boerogg doesn't have anything like that to take advantage of.

 

Regardless, this is masterfully done. The face itself is particularly gorgeous and expressive, so it's a shame it's not as much of a visual focus-point as it could be. As I said in the other thread, the eyes are spectacular.

Again, the way you paint is so delightfully different to the usual approach (no criticism of the usual implied, either). I dub it "unabashedly painted"! Thankyou, thankyou everybody, you can use that for half my usual fee.

 

I actually like this guy even better than the giantess. The sketchy, energetic look identified by Dontfear really works well with this aggressive looking piece.89i <- the new cat doesn't understand the rules about keyboards.

 

So yeah, it's got a real "premium comicbook cover" feel to it that I think is extra cool in its own right. And the switch between YARRRRHHHPAINTPAINTPAINTPAINT* and the precise, intense blue of the decorative elements is candy for the old visual cortex, I really like that.

 

 

*And I mean that with full respect to your obvious skill and precision, displayed throughout; it just has a such a full-bore, open-throttle look to it that I find unusual and striking.

      My first time posting to this forum, please let me know if I misstep :p
       
      Reaper Bones Black: 44002 Rock Troll
       
      I added a more rocky base using rock and some plastic crystals carved from leftover plastic sprue. Also added some more crystals to his elbows and side. The elbows were just because I thought it would make it look more menacing but the one on his side was because of a huge hole leftover from the moulding process. To take care of assembly lines I used some of the rock I cracked apart for the base.
       
      I still have the belt and pouch to do, along with the base and some smoothing if blends in his muscles. 
       
      Feedback and CC most welcome!!!

      So the reason I had spare blackstar rifles was that I decided a proper pirate captain needs a sword. 
       
      So I built this guy with the bones 3 weapon pack, and the spare head off of the bones 4 bulldog armor. 
       
      His sword has much fire, and his reactor a distressing blue glow.

      Hi all.  I just finished the Colossal Skeleton that I've had for a couple years now.  For the longest time I was holding off because I was afraid of doing a mini so much bigger than all the rest.  I've gotten some nice reviews on some of my recent stuff so I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at my first large figure.  I have several sets much larger than even this guy so I had to start somewhere.  The closeup pics show how much work I did on the fur for the back lioncloth as well as the wood grain lines I painted on the planks on his right thigh.  I based him on a wooden plaque my mom was getting rid of that I painted black.  I was doing more work on the base, it was supposed to have some more colours in it but I messed up on the drybrushing so I called it finished and hid the mistake with some static grass .  So far one friend has told me the blue rags pull him out of the mini because they look too new and blue while the rest of him is old and rotted.  Maybe he could do with some more staining on the blue but it doesn't bother me much.  Anyways, enough preamble, I hope you all like him enough as my first large mini!
       
      Edit: forgot to apologize for the make-believe "lightbox" photos, but that's how it goes.
