Anyway, no post for a fortnight, time to rectify with better images of my recent ogres. Very challenging to paint in brown. Has been a good exercise in making each brown different and distinctive, yet look like they belong together and of similar colour temperature. Photos were taken in natural light (overcast conditions outside).
Ogre Mercenary (*must get that shield sorted out!):
Tons of nice fiddly detail on this one, this and the other ogres in the set retains Jes Goodwin's style first shown in his work for Asgard. With the next group of ogres, it looks like less time was spent on finer detail, and the ogres have a more generic character.
I already posted a shot of this Gladiator before but here we have a better view; and the same with the Warlord, looking much better in natural light.
I had quite a lot of fun doing this. Layer upon layer of various browns. In close up, there are all sorts of wonderful effects going on. Very painterly. I think Mr Blanche himself would approve.
