A fantastic scene from Terrible Kids Stuff. I really enjoyed this project. I always like non-green orcs, and I’ve felt my last attempts at a more yellowish skin tone weren’t successful. Here, I decided to include a chartreuse type tone into the mix, and it really helped. In this case, poison green from Kimera.

It’s a large model, and it is both deceptively simple and deceptively complex. What I mean is that the sculpt is wonderfully executed, and very painter-friendly. So it is much easier to deal with than you might expect when wrestling with what amounts to 4 characters. Then again, it’s 4 very fun, well sculpted characters, each screaming to be seen lol. So I had to work hard to give each character its due, so to speak. It ended up being a really fun and challenging study in composition, focus and balance.

painted with scale artist, ak, Kimera, some game color and inks

    love your works

    Yeah! Really strong! Lovely color choices, the level of detail is really nice. You captured the scene really lovely. I voted gold, but do see some things I miss. Meant just as positive feedback: The level of detail in some parts is so good, faces, mouth ... but for example I miss some more damage and scratches to the purple shoulder plates and overall on the armour. The orc’s shoe laces could recieve single dots to represent the material a bit better. I really like this piece, do not get me wrong. I think it could benefit from increasing the time to work on micro details to get an overall sharper definition and resolution. Nonetheless, a lovely piece! Keep on happy painting!

      Thank you for that great feedback Roman!  Yeah, I really wrestled a lot with maintaining balance and focus in the one with all the elements.  And weathering the metals all around was one thing in particular that I went back and forth on.  I plan to go back to this piece to raise the level further for potential competition entries, and both of the ideas you gave me are ones I will likely add at that time.  Thanks again - your feedback is always very appreciated
