love the sculpt - the painting and weathering effects are a great compliment to his weary expression - all in all a very evocative work of art - thanks for sharing!

Awesome awesome job, Jay! He's fantastic and so is the simple but very effective base.

 

Only critiques- paint the edges of the banner red too and I would've tried to sculpt the original basing flooring to the edges of the wooden dais/plinth.

The Melancholy Norse Lord was a JOY to follow through all his W.I.P. stages AND a BEAUTIFUL creation now that he is finished...your perseverance is TRULY commendable. WONDERFULLY WELL DONE!

Thanks Ub3r;

Astute observation on the banner edges.  I never thought of going over them with red.  Write that in Next Time Book.

I was originally going to carve out the base area, except that kiln dried wood was as hard as a rock !  LOL

Next time I'll find a way to sink the base.

He was magnificent to paint though !!!

Thanks Kitenerd.

It was fun trying to go along with that despondent feeling that I picked up as I started painting him up.

I kept thinking of a dark night as I painted him up.

Such a great sculpt though !!!

Great job!

 

Enter him in the 54mm challenge! There is still time!

He's entered Xherman1964 !

Thanks for sharing that info.

Ub3r gave me the link.

Thank you for your "Oh So Supportive" words.  I consider you such a master of this art; with your whimsical spin on creatures, that praise

from you is very dear to my heart !  I just got some anthropomorphic characters, so I'll be watching your posts for inspiration !

You did a great job bringing out the brooding look!

Thanks Citrine;

This sculpt just evokes so many emotions.  I was amazed to see the "Brooding nature" start showing up as I was painting.

What really made it for me was "there were NO horns on his helmet".. and I saw elements from my visit to the vikings museum

on Bygdoy in Oslo.  That really sealed it for me.  The heads on the throne are from a sledge they dug up near Holmestrand,

Where my family is from.

Nicely done on such an evocative piece. ::):

Thanks DZ;

It is so rare that you get a miniature that just "talks" to you like this one did.

I'm sad to see it done in one sense, but it acquired such epic importance to get it done for me.

The 54 mm had it's own set of "problems" to conquer, so it was really a great challenge.
