Maledrakh's Crooked Claw Troll

Recommended Posts

Excellent work on the skin tones. The colours scheme is also beautiful. Incorporating some of the purple into his club works really well.

He’s awesome, and I love your paint job for the most part, but I do question the choice of using that color for his loincloth. I find it pulls so strongly that it reduces the amazing effect you have of using the same color on his ears, as some shading in the skin, and on the club. Using it as a shade color within the loincloth would have given a better result and wouldn’t draw my eye to it over and over again as opposed to the rest of the figure. Just some thoughts.

@Adrift thank you for your comments! Actually, I had originally done it in red, but that had the exact effect you describe. What I ended up with was an improvement over that, but in hindsight is certainly is as you say too similar to the ears. I probably should have gone into blues for the lioncloth instead. Live and learn :)

      Naturally, the giants of the Lost Valley are Stone Giants, seeing as the Lost Valley is in the Stone Age.

      Still messing about with contrast paints, we come to the Nolzur's Marvellous miniatures Spectator and Gazers.
       

      The Spectator and Gazer are obviously variants of the classic Beholder...
