New Horizons: Tarko from Fallen Frontiers


Recommended Posts

I would like to make a compliment for the base. I really love it!

 

As for the figure - I have to main "issues" with it, though they are not really issues - and who am I to judge - but:

 

1) The face - I think it could have used a bit more contrast. It looks anime-esque (which is great, no question), but in my opinion it is way too bright. I mean - we are talking of the mighty Tarko, who is obviously awesome. A bit more of contrast would have been absolutely acceptable.

 

2) The trousers. I don't know if it is the colour of the blue, but the trouser looks ... wet. Hm. Doesn't fit the rest. (Maybe he was swalloed by a giant bug, blasted his way out of its stomach and is now watching the sunrise saying: "Well done, Boy. Well done.")

 

Still, those are minor issues of my imagination and my thoughts, so don't feel all too bothered by it.

Over all I think you have done really well. The contrast in the orange armor is really nice. It reminds me of lava. The face is good overall, but it seems washed out. This especially shows in the front view of the model. This could be just the picture, or maybe you were going for a pale skin tone. The side view of the face seems to show more detail. I think the eyes, lips and ears could use a bit more definition to really pop. Overall a nicely done face. 

The blue part of his outfit doesn’t seem to have gotten as much detail as the rest of the model and looks flatter than the rest of the model. Again this could be the color reacting to the photography. Basically the blue parts just need “higher highlights and deeper shadows” to match the rest of model.

keep up the good work! :)

Looks amazing to me!

 

The orange is a bold choice and it works very well.

I also think you did a great job on the face!

Anytime I see Broncos colors I love it.  You really shaded the orange well and his face is awesome!

 

 

Thank you!

Thank you you for the feedback! Yeah, the face is washed out in the photos, definetly has more contrast in person. My camera really did not like taking pictures of him which also made the blue parts bluer if that makes sense. They actually are darker but really do need more work. I was going for blue/black and did not get exactly what I wanted. I think I should have used different blues.

      If any of you have looked at the Hero forge interesting creature builds you may recall me posting some pictures of a squad of commandos called Crusader squad. Let’s just say I succumbed to the temptation to get the stls for my printer.
      Currently I only have four printed off. I’ll do the rest when I get them supported. 

      Bombedier

      Shadow, I didn’t get his arms supported right so I’ll try to do some repairs to them. If it works I don’t think I’ll print a replacement.


      Thunderhead

      Max Monova. I really didn’t like his original stance so I redid it and gave him two pistols instead of a pistol and gauntlet blade.

      Primer

      Added some black green and some blue to Monova’s pauldron.
      Thanks for looking!

      I'm a fan of the Scale 75 paints, they have a new range called artist colors.
      The paint comes in tubes.
       
      I wonder if anyone has tried these?
      You're thoughts on these?

      So in addition to the standard carafe of Tropicana orange juice with the oh-so-handy cylindrical lid with gothic arches all around that we all know about, Tropicana makes a sort of  pitcher of orange juice with a pop-top lid:

       
      A lid that can do ... THIS:
       
       
       
       

       
      Woo!

      This rulebook looks like it would scratch the sci fi campaign itch for some fellow forumites.
