This was actually the first painting that I had ever seen and thought… Yes, this is the model I would like to have sculpted. I have no idea why it “spoke” to me in such a way, but it opened up the way for me and my sculpting journey.
Mapping the pose
I never actually know how things will turn out, but I had no complaints at this point. From doing a few models now I am much more careful to watch out at this point for Eldar being given rather “strong/large” bodies. Arms, chest and legs tend to have much larger muscles that are needed. Not here of course 😀
Sketching and adding the chest plate
Always enjoyed seeing the builders process, I had never thought about how you lay these things down, but now its so obvious, draw it on first. Exactly how I do with my models.
Details/Sword and cloak
I think at this point I had a very good idea on how the model was turning out and I loved it. The scale increase was still a shocker as I’d only ever seen 28mm models tbh. Of course the Asurmen statue, but…
Adding the helm and head column
Adding the sweet sweet gems
Final Images & Cast Model
Oh indeed, the alternative head that was created. This little head was actually based on my pretty mug! But with an Eldar vibe of course. lol
