Storm Giant 77163 (I'll come up with a cool name when he's done!)

Recommended Posts

Alrighty... My first official WIP thread yay......

So, I today I'm supposed to be studying for a test but I decided to take a paint break. SO, I picked a figure that looked fun and stuff... For reasons that are possibly classified, (lol, inside joke...) my storm giant whom for the moment I will call Flynn (not his official name) is missing an arm. 

I started putting flesh on him and then a bit of NMM

So I worked on him a bit yesterday.

Boiled him to straighten out his sword covered some more of the fleshy areas and got a first layer or green stuff down.

Then after I finshed my Essay that's due tomorrow I went ahead and started fiddling with him again.

I think you are off to a great start. I like to use those those dolls that painters do for poses and such the few rare times when I sculpt things. Hands are horribly difficult to get right, so I usually cheat and get one from something the same size.

If not cheating by using a hand from something else, try to hide it in a way that looks natural.

One thought is to wrap his arm up in a cloak, as some duelists would do so as extra protection...

Granted that these guys are using light Rapier like swords, but when you lose your shield or off hand weapon, any thing helps when you are fighting for your life!

That is how Thorin Oakenshield got his name....

 

You could either wrap it more tightly to provide more protection, or sweep it out like a matador's cape as a mis-direction thing.

Also, some people would sew coins into the bottom hems of their cloaks, both to conceal them, and to add weight so that they could whip them around in sword fights....

 

Hope that sparks some ideas for you!

Okay so I need to get back to this and I have! He's got a real arm now, and I plan to work on him seriously tomorrow. He has to be prepped for R-con after all. Yay!

(Slightly terrified to be finally competing with the adults)

Great to see you back at it!

 

And don't forget that we are all quite child like around here!

 

It's more fun that way!!!!

 

And remember that the competition is not really you vs anyone else, see the rules on judging for an explanation...

Oh I know but it's going to be completely different from competing in the youth category

      Hey, all! Its been a little while and I finally sat down and painted something. I put these guys together and I'm really happy with the shading. I wanted to put some water on the bases, so I tried wrapping them with plastic and pouring realistic water in. It... did not go according to plan. The water cured unevenly, shrank, left weird tide lines, partially peeled off... Basically everything that could go wrong with it went wrong. Luckily, I had sealed the model before pouring the water, so I was able to peel it off with an exacto and some tweezers. I salvaged what I could and I think they still look pretty good.

      I present to you the almost nuclear looking troll that utilizes FolkArt's Ultra Dye "Purple Rain" as its inspiration and base shadow and wash.  Also included in the skin triad are Reaper Blood Red and Reaper Brilliant Red for the highlights.
       
      I'll add the remaining paint list later when they are in front of me.  For now, pictures:

      Technically this is a WIP since the base is unfinished, but the figure is done-ish..

      This is one of the giants that I've painted that I'm the most proud of!

      I wasn't sure if I should post this in Show off or WIP, but I figured here and if you would please forgive the in progress parts in the subsequent post.
       
      Ron let me paint this lovely sculpt by Gene Van Horne.  Actually, I think I might have begged to paint it and considered stealing it from his office if he refused.   She'll be in the Greek Odyssey Expansion for Bones V.  If by some miracle you have come to this forum and not heard of Bones V, it can be found here.  Aaron Lovejoy was awesome and took some high definition photos of her after last Reapercon.  
       





       
      I really love this sculpt, can't say that enough.  She's got some fantastic detail, lots of good open space to work on blending or freehand, even a scenic base to play with stone effects.  While I loved the original Yephima by Patrick Keith, and still use her in my classes, this one really screams warrior to me.  I need to paint my bones version when I get it as Athena. I'll have to add a shield somewhere, though. Maybe convert the club to a spear.  Decisions decisions.
       
      Anyway, feel free to ask questions.  I'm happy to explain or help with anything!  I'm going to post the WIP pictures I have in another post, so hopefully those will also be useful.  Enjoy!
