This is, I think, the first post I'll have made since before Christmas. So once more unto the breech and back into the saddle I go. This thread shall purely be the commission side of my painting/sculpting as I've got one on the go at the moment, and more to start once this one's completed, rather than muddling it up with my own personal musings.
I shall try to keep this regularly updated to keep moving projects along and to log how they were done, I imagine we've all been there where we've created a piece of unmitigated awesomeness and then realised you couldn't remember how you did it and still have 9 more to muddle your way through.
To which end then, my first offering, a WIP offering, mind; Kranon the Relentless on a Bike.
A fairly simple brief on paper; put Kranon on a bike whilst attacking with his sword. The reality is somewhat different; lots of chopping and re-sculpting.
The bike's a cross between the Chaos bike and the MkIV Outrider Bike with what I think is a good hash at a Chaos star.
Kranon's sword, a lovely thing if you're using it as part of the stock model, but when you want to turn it over you realise that a) The hand and forearm are moulded onto the sword, coming up to the cross guard. Having absorbed this you see that daft tassel that again, goes ½ way up the guard; finally you realise that having cut these off, you're going to have to re-sculpt ½ the sword!
At present I am working on the sword so I can assemble it and then properly work on that arm.
If anyone has any questions as to how I did something, suggestions as to how to improve X or Y (though not my chromosomes, they're stuck as they are) I'm all ears.
