  1. Really great job dude. The weathering in the marine and black highlights on the death jesters cloak are especial highlights for me.

    1. Thanks! Now get back to work on Bjorn. I am just reading Wolf King right now and I'm even more excited to see him finished!!!!

  2. Amazing work on it! The little details are great, including the shurikens in the wood base and the fresh blood.

    1. Thank you. I'll likely donate it for the silent auction next year at NOVA with a few other pieces.

  3. I love the model, and the base, and I really like the integration of the shrikken catapults into the plinth. That was just brilliant!

    I do think you could have done more to integrate the model into the plinth. Though the plinth itself is pretty awesome, the actual model is just plopped on the top of it.

    I think individually both are very strong. Together they are a bit jarring.

    1. Thanks! You are not wrong about the integration. I would have loved to build it into the base more but I lost focus and had a hard time just completing it. This is a good example of what happens when a project is constantly interrupted. The flow kind of breaks up, both in painting and execution.

    2. I would suggest to revisit that base in the future, and possibly keep the model as is for an entry (if you enter it). I think the plinth as is would actually reduce the overall score in comp.

      But I can definitely see that plinth, taken to additional levels, becoming an absolutely masterpiece of execution! (As always these comments are meant to be constructive in nature)

    3. Ugh, not sure I want to come back to this one. I was so burnt out and it waaaay in the back of the old cabinet now. I'm likely giving it away, but it's a good lesson to keep in mind on future projects. I may do several others like it to make them a display, but then they would all have to have the same separation to make it look like a deliberate theme.

    4. Hmm...well maybe revisit it in a few months. I think the idea was very awesome, and really inspired!

  4. Zab, this is amazing work. Smooth texture in places it needed to be and rough in the right places. Thumbs up man!

    1. Thanks! I've been working on how different styles of painting can work together to create that sense of texture like using different finishes too, gloss or matte or satin. The hard part is pulling it all together so they don't look like separate pieces on the same base.

By all means have your say, but please keep it civil.
