unusual image for an orc
Thanks for commenting Evgeny. Do you mean the skin colour, or, the image as a whole? The model has her sitting on a tree stump. My first instinct was to paint a green orc but I also wanted to practice painting green environmental light on the undersides
Skin color, but I really liked the work.
Thanks Paul, I ended up spending a lot more time and effort working on the base than I did on the figure itself.
Great work! How did you make the moss? It’s extremely realistic!
Thanks Matteo, The moss is the AK interactive moss texture. I think there are comparable products (‘structural foams’) from other manufacturers as well. It can be used simply by sprinkling it on pva or scenery glue. I ended up mixing it into a small amount of PVA glue to form a paste which I could make into shapes and surfaces resembling a moss and then sprinkled more of the dry granules on top. The AK product is a fairly dark uniform blue green so I painted and drybrushed other greens and yellow into it to help define the overall volumes and also to create bright points to suggest patches of dappled sunlight through the trees.
your explanation was very detailed! thanks a lot!
