Lord of the Jungle
Legends of the Jungle Kickstarter, 75 mm
Comission work.
Done in 2017.

_____________________________________________________________________________

The muddy jungle bottom yells his name in praise.
Every living creature that moves and make sounds calls his name.
Everything is one in the jungle. One vibrant might. He runs it.
And when he calls the jungle answers.

I never build such a big base again. Sadly I was not able to get a good photo of the whole piece as it is just too big for the superlarge light box in the studio. One shot in the end with the mobile phone shows it on the table in full.

Keep on happy painting!

    this is just awesome! great work. does the little baboon come with the kit or did you make it?

    • Roman Lappat, "jarhead"PLUS

      Thanks. The baboon is a remain from a model i one day wanted to paint by SMOG or Mauser Earth. Not sure if they are still available. Check for the company names I pointed out.

    Love this one Roman!!
    “I never build such a big base again” -> That’s what you said with “The Last Light” hahaha. I know one day a big base will call your name, my friend. One day…. ;-)

  • Curmudgeon

    wow!!!! Hiperrealistic.
    I love your style of real painting, many will say it is “dirty” but I tell them that reality is dirty.
    Incredible little details.

    Very interesting interpretation!  May I ask, why did you choose to add the beard?  And also, did you sculpt the little monkeys?  :)
