Senua, Hellblade - 2023
Work: Painting, conversion
Scale 1:12, Hellcreater Fan Art 3D Sculpt


In private collection.

Really enjoyed breathing life into this character.
Hope you like my interpretation of this character based on the very succesfull computer game with the same name.

Attached you can see photos on grey background, plus size comparision to a bottle of paint, plus a photo in the cabinet beside other figures to provide a true sense of how the miniature looks. You can find a lot of Work in Progress and explanation material on this bust via my Patreon. Link below!

Hope you like her!

Keep on happy painting!
Roman

    Looks like she had a hard day at the office.

    GOLD.

  • Štěpán Tichý

    The simplicity of the colours scheme and cohesion always fascinate me. It feels so nuanced and combined together really well that it looks “easy” and then I look at it properly and damn. This is a stellar paint job with a great thought process behind it. Amazing work Roman.

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Thank you, Štěpán. I am happy that you look so close and see what is going on there. As you mention there is a lot of thought and harmony included in the bust to make her look so cohesive ... thank you for your kind compliment!

    Lieber Roman , Deine HelDas ist doch sehr lblade hat eine beeindruckende Wirkung auf mich 1!
    Ja , das was Du mir zu Kontrasten - Licht und Schatten geschrieben hast . Auch zu dramatischen Einflüssen , kann ich in Deiner Büste wieder finden und somit verleiht sie Deiner Hellblade eine große stärke und auch gewisse Magie .
      Wir können alle von einander lernen . Denn sehr viele Künstler in den verschiedenen bereichen haben ihre stärken . Das ist doch wunderbar zu nutzen . Ich lerne von Dir und mache es in der gegebenen Entwicklung zu meinem eigenen . Beste Grüße und das ist eine ganz tolle Arbeit ..............

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Das freut mich, dass sie so sehr gefällt, Holger. Gerne mit dem Feedback :) vielen Dank für deine netten Worte!

      So many titles :D ...  much love and thanks to you. Just Ro-Man ;)

  • alphafourtwoPLUS

    Simply amazing Roman. I’ve wanted to do that figurine for a while, simply because Senua has such a heavy baggage of emotion attached to her that I thought it would be interesting to do in painting. You’ve portrayed it very well, in her look and overall stance (cold in the skin, injuries, etc.).

    I’m now intimidated to do a version of it. Great job!

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      She has and it is a baggage that you can include into the paintjob. What helped me was references to pick my version of her I wanted to create. Do not feel intimitated, there is no need to. Do like Senua would do: push through and create your Version.
      Glad you like my version so much! Thank you!

    Hi Roman,
    ich habe mir das Spiel erst kürzlich mal angeschaut und ich bin begeistert wie detailgetreu und lebendig du die Miniatur zum leben erweckt hast. Besonders der Schmutz und die verschmierte Farbe wirken extrem realistisch und geben der Büste einen besonderen Look. Ich hoffe dir geht´s gut und es wäre schön wenn wir uns wieder mal sehen könnten.

    Ganz liebe Grüße
    Kurt

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Hey Kurt,
      Schön von Dir zu hören. Ich hoffe euch geht es gut?
      Freut mich sehr, wenn Dir meine Version so gefällt.
      Kann Dir das Spiel sehr ans Herz legen. Intensiv, inspirierend und wunderschön.

      Bei mit ist alles paletti soweit. Meld Dich gern mal!

      Liebe Grüße zrugg!

  • Stelios DemirasPLUS

    GREAT! Gold!!!

  • Chris "Thor"

    I enjoy this piece more and more the longer I look at it and see all the little details you’ve added around her. Fantastic :)

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Hey Chris, this is lovely to hear! Yes, there is a lot going on! Glad you like her!
