On the workbench - Figone Orc Bust

Whats next on the table?

An orc bust by French company Figone - he has been thoroughly enjoyable to paint so far, and I have some ideas for the rest of him to try and get some different textures on there. Thick, worn leather apron and a white pin striped shirt.

Not very Orc-like? It'll fit a lot more when I have attached his brass and steel goggles. I wanted to take the sci-fi orc and make him a little more steampunky. I have attached these two pics... the first one is much sharper (from my actual camera) but the second one is definitely a better colour match - its all a lot richer.

    1. Thanks! I am hoping to finish him quite quickly - it really seems to be painting itself at the moment :D

  3. Gorgeous work as always. I bought my first Figone bust last weekend. I decided against the Avaloian as I've always marvelled at your version of it and having seen it in person at the Golem painting day last year, decided to wait a while on that one and try my own hand at this instead. Now I see you're working on it too - great inspiration to aim for!

    1. Hi Paul!

      He is a lovely model to paint - I've done little to him since these pics (I have added some more shading, but thats about it), but he is an absolute joy ;)

      Whilst we are talking avout orc busts, have you seen this one?
      LeBeN Studio Orc Pirate - also an Allan C sculpt and absolutely gorgeous
