Orc guy the something something orc warlord

Recommended Posts

I totally haven’t looked up this character’s name. He’s great. He’s an orc. Bones 4. Blah blah blah. 
 

Anyways, I stopped painting orc-face mc-Orc doodle the orc prematurely out of painting fatigue. I had lots of other shiny new bones to paint. It’s a great sculpt and he deserves respect though. 
 

So let’s try this! If you’ve got improvements to suggest I’ll implement them and post a new picture. It could be fun and you’ll motivate a fellow nerd to “brush up” and turn a decent job into a great job - which is one place I could use encouragement. You can of course call it done anytime you like, but sometimes you know the figure needs more. This will be a fun exercise.

Looks good, the shield and horns especially.

 

For feedback, my suggestion is contrast/tonal variation. Overall it has a lot of dark and desaturated tones. If you took a black and white photo, I would wager that a lot of the values would be in a similar range.

 

I would pump up the highlights more - the horns on the helmet is a good example of having a wider range of contrast. In fact, you have a higher value range on the base of the mini rather than the mini itself, which pulls attention away from the mini itself.

 

So, I would add some green, brown, and black spot washes to the base to give it more variation (rock isn't just gray) as well as pull the values down. I would add more highlights top of the helm, and the very tips of the inside corners of the 'facemask'. I personally would add some bright glowing "eyes" just to pull more attention towards the face, but that is just a personal aesthetic.

 

Introduce more shadows in the upper recesses of the cloak, and add some highlights towards the tips/edges where light would gather.

Can't see any way to improve on the perfection of that shield!

Maybe give the armor a touch of rust; orcs aren't known for maintenance. Good stuff all around.

      I loved everything about this guy from bones 4 pictures to delivery to painting to result!

      My gryphon suffers heavily from a top heavy wing. After 3 hot and cold baths I took a less pretty option of making a 3rd point of contact.  It shows, but it works!

      I saw the colorpattern of the dragons before, but it inspired me for my color scheme finally.  Dragonlance anybody?

      Here is my take on the Nagendra figs from Bones 4. I will be using them as Yuan-Ti at my table in an upcoming adventure for my home game. 
       
      I have seen a few different submissions of other folks' nagas and took inspiration from the ones that took advantage of a variety of colors. Just seemed more interesting to me in that it told a bit more of "the story." I have been challenging myself to be more patient, and to try not to rush. These guys were a good exercise since I painted each of the scales I could reach with a brush individually. It seemed daunting at first, but settling in, knuckling down and taking my time was a pretty enjoyable experience. Plus, I am very happy with the results!
       
      This project was also my first experience using sculpt-a-mold as a medium to give the bases the look of a worked stone. Was shooting for a sandstone desert temple. I got close enough for my first go, I think. I really like this stuff, and it was a lot of fun to experiment with.
