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.

      This fellow has been lurking at the bottom of a drawer or box for over 30 years.... I finally painted him up. It was actually a bit irritating somehow... I guess that's why he sat in nothing more than a coat of primer and a red shield for so long! Not sure the maker, maybe citadel? He is on a metal part for the slot base that helpfully says 'orc'. All this time later, I love him just for nostalgia and remembering my dad painting up all those orcs... and we never used the minis in play!

      Presenting the Swamp Orc Standard Bearer, he's part of one of the newer factions in Games Workshop's Age of Sigmar range.
       
      Really happy with this one and I had a lot of fun painting all his chunky detailing!

      Back after a long-ish hiatus. I had to take a break from painting earlier this year because of some eye issues. No that I can see right again, I wanted to take a simple-ish mini to completion. I used the RCL limited palette theme for July. 
       
      While the paint job on these maggots can be better, it's gratifying to be back to doing something I enjoy immensely.

      Blink has been sitting on my desk for months. I finally called it done on her today. There are issues, especially with the not so clean lines on the armor, but I just needed to get this done and move on. I am, however, happy enough with her face.

      I started these Minitaurs months ago, and wanted to paint them like the Khazra from the Diablo video games. I abandoned work on them earlier this year when I took a break from painting for health reasons. At this point I'm kinda jaded and just wanted them off my table. The leader's wrist wraps are too bright, and I might go back and add shadows to tone those down, but otherwise I'm done with these.
