Hey mate! The buggy looks great! Very Orky.....

Love the " as likely to roll over and explode to kill you as it is to race over you spitting fire and leaving a trail of burnt parts" Look you have going! ----> Meant as a compliment!

Good stuff!

Thank you guys.

This thing is continued on my Orkishness thread. Dedicated to all orkyness.

On a quick side not I am very proud to present this, my 10 year old is drawing up a storm (just like I used to) Don't worry I do not let him see Horror movies!



I just hope he keeps it up.

Will be back later with some of my rubbish.

Cool poses...I think he shows great potential! Despite the fact that the upper figure is a predator and thus earns winning points with ease it us that crouching one I find particularly interesting! The pose here is very well observed and he added some neat details that tell us a story...at that age I still sketched 2D pirates with all extremities outstretched at a ridiculous angle...this shows how well screwed on the head of yon son is! I hope my rubbish musings come over as the compliment there were meant to be

Hmmm...what an interesting scheme...very flashy...the face looks very good to me, where I have my difficulties with is the color of the cloth...it is in hue rather close to the color of the carpace...that makes it a bit complicated...I like the hazard strips on the helmet...I wonder if more stripes to the cloth would look good...just a suggestion...

Yeah, the cloth is the only thing I can really find any problems with. Could do with contrasting more with the armour.

The rest is good.

Thank you guys, that's it going with the orange, just got to tidy up a bit and figure out a base????

@Velour_Fog Welcome to the mad house. I think you would be right in the normal run of things, but in these particular circumstance I am after shock and awe, more than actual realism.

On that point, should I camo him with purple dots? Just kidding. Just trying to think of a base, maybe urban!

I'd say it works just fine

As for camo and realism, maybe making him MP? Are there any of those in the IG?

Skin looks good too, if I'd were to mention anything, it'd be then golden details, maybe a bit too flashy still?

I have lost all feeling for this one, HELP!!

Where have I gone wrong? Think I might end up scrapping it as a bad lot.

Also Working on another guardsman just for laughs.

First off, good effort on the killer whale.

There's something about the colour scheme though, that feels a little off to me. But I can't put my finger on what it is...

It does give the impression of a personal guard to someone that has lots of money and likes to show others that he/she has lots of money.

I think it may be that there are too many colours going on. There's orange and blue (which work well together), and white (this gives them the upper class look), and then there's red (which goes with the white trousers) and green (which makes sense for a wreath) and they're all vying for attention. So, I can see why the colours were used... I dunno, maybe I'm wrong, maybe it's something else...

But beyond that I can't really help, sorry.

Heya mate..... Really like that last guards man... and i agree.. i think it looks like the personal defence force of some real rich trader or planatery gov.

I think the thing for me is the rifle...... the white just looks a little off to me... i know its potentially for a wealthy govoner or something... but even a dark copper or a silver or something...... just my 2 bobs worth!

Looks great though... and those free hand sholder pads.....

Thank you.

Just to clarify, yes it's a bit of an odd colour scheme. I don't know what I was trying for. Just kinda popped out. Oh and it's actually gold on the plating. Sorry my picture is a bit crap, not really picked up the metallic. That actually probably makes it worse. Still, the idea was to make you think, and I achieved that!

I am ashamed of myself, but here is a self plug. For those who have not discovered my Orkishness thread, here is the skorcha I showed earlier in this thread. Spoilered for all you great peeps who take the time to here me ramble on on two threads.

Spoiler:









Thank you for your support, really makes a difference.

Don't get me wrong, it's not bad. Just a little off balance some how.
Might just be me, if you like it, stick with it.

Yes indeed. Much head scratching was required.

Thank you guys, Been a while sorry, been distracted by my ork blog.

So in the furtherance of learning to paint skin, I got my grubby mitts on a nice old mini. Nice and unpainted when I got it. (thanks Inmygravenimage.)

And one evenings work and look what popped out. As I have said before, I want a very critical eye over this. Please comment.






Thanks for your time, and hopefully comments.
