I smashed out another mini project over the last week, an ogryn bust painted to look like a soldier in the Imperial Army of the Warhammer 40k universe.
I continued working on the nuanced, lively, rich skintones I’ve been chasing for months. I’m never 100% satisfied with my work, but I feel like this represented a valuable experiment in my effort to dial in a method for achieving my intended result.
The figure was very large, offering good opportunities for wet blending, glazing, and other techniques. And the eyes were big enough to really push the detail for once.
I wanted to leave enough Easter eggs around the model to reward a careful look. From the three tattoos to the glowing cigar tip to the golden tooth, I wanted to create details that would lend some personality to this character.
Thanks for looking. Let me know what you think!
