    Great bust. And absolutely beautiful paint work. As always. It looks like you had a lot of fun painting him, but it’s also a great inspiration seeing this level of creativity on Orc bust. Great fantasy look. ^^

  • Jay Martin (Redrum)PLUS


  • Peter "Baphomet" TothPLUS

    Thanks a lot for sharing the bust :) it´s a very good chance to study your way of painting and to learn more about color variation in different “materials”. In my opinion it´s one of your best paintsjobs so far ;)

    • David KuehnPLUS

      Agree. To everything Peter said.

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Thank you, Peter. Well, there ain’t no miniature on this world that I paint and do not share :D

      Thank you, David. Too!

  • mmasclans

    Even I prefer the first approx of your painting, when it is less defined but with a clear and risky colour intention, It is a great job. I havn’t post good pictures of my version, wich is less original, more conventional just to show the bust. I think you played really good with the tones, specially with those spots. Your colour work is being better in every bust, an inspiration!Would be great to paint together some day! Take care Roman! See you soon in Monte!;)

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Maybe this November. I am doing a weekend class in Madrid and plan to do a holiday there too. Would be cool as your paintjobs have a great influance on mine. Thank you for such kind words, Marc.

  • Erich_Strasser

    Wow, i’m speechless

  • Patryk "Paster03" Ciemięga

    His skin is just perfect! All these colors and tones on a “simple grey and white” surface, beautiful work Roman.

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      As far as I remember I did not even touch grey :D - thank you!

  • David KuehnPLUS

    This is fantastic, absolutely breathtaking. Not a big fan of orcs, but I cannot stop looking at this - not only for the brilliant execution and the beautiful colors but mainly the idea to give him the skin of the Great White. So. Amazing!

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      I bow my head in gratitude. Thanks for your vote and comment, David.

  • Uli Wilke

    Woah. Love it. Especially that “white shark” skintones.

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      I am always fascinated by white sharks. This came up from deep of my heart. Thanks, Uli!

  • UFO70

    Irre coole Hautbemalung! Gefällt mir super!

  • Ben (EclypseDesigns) Curry

    Got to say, i think this is my favourite version of this. The subtlety in the colours is wonderful to observe. Bravo!

  • Thorsten Wachtmeister, "Scar"

    It was such a fun to follow you painting this crazy guy.
    Loving the atmosphere and the collors working perfect together. Nothing else then gold.

  • Kristian Simonsen

    Great and inspiring work man !

  • John Margiotta "BloodASmedium"PLUS

    You have absolutely ABSOLUTELY “KILLED THIS BUST”. super realistic and lifelike .i keep thinking I’m seeing him breathe. My favorite is how he’s named sharky and you’ve masterfully recreated a sharks skin effect on his body.bloody amazing jar ,bloody phenomenal.

  • Sebastian Schubert

    really really really nice, the face is awesome and a cool colour choice

  • Max Faleij

    one of your best works so far imo. fantastic work! love the colours!

  • François-Xavier "Fx" HUET

    “Goldy” !!


  • Josh "Zozimus" Pattison

    Very cool.  Is the idea that he’s painted himself to look like a shark?  Like camouflage!  :)  Awesome.

  • Paolo-Di-Poce

    one of my preferred piece ever, absolutely gold

  • Jonas Sturesson

    The textures?!...Awesome!

  • Pascal Schwager

    Absolut fantastic !
