Today i finished the Trojans and i had a blast doing so! this commission has caused me to totally re think the way i approach the troop method! i am glad to be introducing the new price rise soon so that i may be able to finally give EVERY MINIATURE that leaves my doors at least a minimum of 1 hour a miniature, which may not sound like a lot but the troops below got at least that each and it shows!
its the little things...
As this client has been so eager and loyal from the get go i have taken this order into my clutches and given it that extra tlc, for instance, the brown rim around the cow shields and the mix of shield and helmet designs to really help and keep that mixed but exciting albeit unified feel. I really enjoyed these and i always enjoy color so this group was very exciting to me!
As you can see, a colorful and vibrant lot with a great tan hahaha. I really hope my client likes them and i hope you guys do too! Let me know below!
Here is the last unit.
Something else i just finished was this monk miniature i have had sitting on my desk since my last update about him.
i wanted to finish him properly and i find that when you leave a project of any creative type for any legnth of time and come back to it you will always approach with a better and fresher eye.
Hence i gave natural lighting sourcing a try on this guy as i haven't done it for years and i wondered if i still "had it".
I foudn that i very very much do.
I love the result and it makes me excited to try more! The pictures below are not enhanced in ANY WAY with photoshop, they have their contrast bought up and their shadows dropped a littled because the white was a bit shiny in my studio lights, and you can see how AWESOME the result is!
