Comission Work
1/12 Bust by Fer Miniatures/Forged Monkey
Sculptor: Raffaele Picca
Painter: Roman Lappat


Version 1.
Orc-halla awaits! Really cool subject. Just imagine Viking Orcs roaming the sea and ravaging the shores.
Nothing more to say! Close your eyes or look at this bust and see Orc-halla arise!

    I love it! Campfire ;)

  • Jocelyn GoyettePLUS

    Amazing, love the way you painted this guy.

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Thank you, Jocelyn. It was true joy to paint this guy up and I am still in the middle to understand what Kirill and Alfonso thaught me. Finding my way through it via painting.

  • Daniele "Ento" TrovatoPLUS

    Always unique, colour’s use. Compliments!

  • Jero Carmona

    Love that subtle orange spots of light! Roman rulezzzz!

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      I bow my head in gratitude for your kind words!

  • Jason ZhouPLUS

    Great OSL effect!

  • Christer "Alex" Holmen

    I really like the campfire effect! Best, Alex

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Well, the campfire was a joke that appeared. I thought about a burning village or elfish monastry and when I showed Raffa the first steps he was like: What is he cooking at his campfire? :D

  • John 'Painterman' van PeltPLUS

    Great work!

  • Roman "Light_one" GrubaPLUS

    This bust looking amazing Roman, orange dayglow (if I’m right) making fantastic atmosphere

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      It is not actually dayglow colour. Was working with blazing (or firey) orange here from Vallejo. As soon as I am able I will post up a step by step and explain my steps. Thanks for your comment, brother in name and brush!

  • Cornel "Kirby" Kuhn

    It’s been a while since I’ve seen a bust with such an interesting light situation. I somehow link it to Raffa’s latest pieces, where he painted the half of the face in warm and the other half in cold tones. Seems to me that something is going on in the jungle.

    Many thanks for your inspiring work.
    I really love it.

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Hi Cornel, many thanks for your kind and nice comment. I am happy that you like this one. There is always something going on in the jungle, you know! ;)

  • Jay Martin (Redrum)PLUS

    Love the lighting and atmosphere! GOLD!

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Thank you, Sir! Happy you like this guy!

  • Robert "Rogland" CarlssonPLUS

    Great job Roman, you are a superb painter and you know it =)

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Hey Robert, thank you for your kind words. Being a superb painter - like you say - means that you are learning to question yourself and your paintjobs in a superb way. That leads to melancholie sometimes ... painting wise. I am truely happy about your words as they encourage me once again. Thank you, really appreciated.

  • Maartje "MaGie" GiesbersPLUS

    Amazing! The colour contrast are really outstanding :). The light effect is super convincing, I have to urge to cuddle next to him closer to the fire ;).

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      If you would, I guess he would not harm you. He would take you into his strong orcish arms and look into the fire with you. To the past, the present and the future. Well, haha ... thank you, Maartje! Happy you like the athmosphere!
