89019 Nakayama Hayato Iconic Samurai as a Bronze Statue by Glitterwolf

Recommended Posts

Once again I really miss the definition of different parts of the figure, using a thin wash or lining.

That's especially visible on the face, which on my screen has hardly any features recognizable.

But that's my only criticism against this figure.

I really like the basing and the way the figure has been covered in leaves and vines.

I painted it as a statue because the face had very little detail, a wash wouldn't help here, it would have become a blob.

So for this one I didn't bother.

I'm now painting a very small Fighting Monk, I will see if I can give that one some more definition.

Great idea.  He has a nice weathered look.

 

Thank you!

Being one of the first Bones his face wasn't really good so I made him into this statue.

Love the idea and I think it is very well executed. Also the plants look very realistic. My only suggestion would be: The base would look better painted in black. I mean all what is white now.

Thank you!

The base is painted with the Reaper Stone Triad to make it look like the statue is on a stone plinth of some sort.

The plants are all flock and leafs from several brands.

Great idea turning this into a statue. I wonder if there is a way to make the face look like the stone has crumbled.... Really like the use of the vegetation.

Hmm hadn't thought of that, maybe next time I will try something like that.

Crumbling stone might be a good way to hide the lacking features.

      What's better to start my KS Bones topic than Mr. Bones himself ?

      Hello forum family, as I already wrote in the WIP thread I just wanted an Aasimar but don't wanna buy one, so I decided to make my own converting the bones version of the Ghoul Queen and the Angel of Shadows.

      And this is the outcome:  Hi-res picture
       

       

      I really like how she came out, I really hope you'll like her too!
      Every c&c and advice is super welcome :)
      Thank you for watching!

      Hi all.  I may have finished this guy in record time.  I am trying this new thing where when I want to stop and get up from my desk... I don't .  This is a bugbear that I just primed with a couple others even though I didn't really have any strong feelings about him.  But as I started working on him I started to get more excited, which is something that's been happening to me more now.  I just start a mini to get more stuff painted and end up liking the job.  I have started to put more effort into highlighting because I got a nudge here on the forums and I am so glad I did.  I really like the work I did on his armour, bringing the scales up to a brighter orange and ticking the edges with silver to make it look like the orange was paint wearing off.  In person he really glitters with that silver, something that didn't quite come across in the picture.  I like the highlighting I did with his skin and loincloth and also the silver rivets on the arm and shin guards.  I hope you all like him too!
