Happy Orctober, a shaman I didn't get this up sooner!!!!!

 Hi all, first of I hope several Orctober contributions a Marauder Orc shaman on wyvern. Slightly converted from the original with a cleaver instead of his puny dagger. A good change I think that I cannot lay claim to I bought him like that. 

This chap joins my other wyvern rider, the boxed citadel one, I have six more to paint up including the marauder warrior on wyvern and the two 4th ed characters.

Anyway hope you like. He may well be in battle latter today.

Some more work on the orc.

 Thanks for nice things said on FB and here. I managed another hour on medium tonight and I'm pleased with the results. Every addition is on a separate layer of its own so I can mix and match as I sculpt alternatives. It’s a bit ham fisted but it’s got the right feel for me. Have to say I'm pleased.

Next up a couple of shields, a different weapon, maybe some armour and a hat!

My first orc sculpt

 In the past I've tried sculpting with miliputt and greenstuff, I sort of made progress but gave up, it took too long and I'd keep ruining bits I liked.

I also tried sculpting with blender but made very little progress.

I have however started on occulus medium which allows you to sculpt in VR. I have to say I love it and thought I'd share my first sculpt. It's a bare bones orc that I intend to add embellishments to and produce different figures, currently the head and arms are different models.

Now I know professional sculpters can achive amazing things, there are many very talented amatures too but all I'm trying to do is make a figure that looks like it could have been made from green stuff in the late 80's. I'm trying for a sort of Tony Akland style of orc and feel I'm making modest progress so thought I'd share.

So first some inspiration:


 And now a sculpt that needs lots of work.....

I have a long way to go, I know but its very enjoyable.

Hello again.

So very long time no post.  Like almost everyone I'm in lock down and I have photos to share. Now I don't have the backdrops I used to use anymore so I thought I'd experiment using my monitor as a back drop with mixed results. I'm also only using my phone to take pictures.

Anyway first up an old friend finally painted up....

He has a friend too...

or with different cammera settings:
I also have something you don't see every day, a light wizard and acolytes:

Like I said mixed results with the photos I'm hoping to get some nice backdrops and a decent camera sorted soon. Nice to be back.
