Pit Fighter Challenge: WIP (5)

Still slow, but the upper part starts looking a bit more vaguely human. Actually, it looks better on the pictures than in reality.

10 days left, damn!

Pit Fighter Challenge: WIP (4)

 Well well well... going back on the slow side of slowness. Here's the outcome of the last 2 evenings, working on the arms. I start by developing the volumes that I will adjust later with a blade. I'll probably have to enlarge the neck by adding volumes both tangent to the current neck and the end of the shoulders. We'll see... I hope I haven't screwed up too much on the armature!

Pit Fighter Challenge: WIP (3)

 The result of yesterday's work. Beginning of the volumes. I'm trying to stick to the sphere-like shape of the original concept. Somehow.

Pit Fighter Challenge: WIP (2)

Pit Fighter Challenge: WIP (1)

Back to the Pit Fighter Challenge of the Minicréateurs forum. The work on the preceding mini, used as the "Best of Show" trophy for the next Painting Crusade was more of a test for that kind of design and volumes. This time, I will try to stay closer to the initial design. Hopefully. Yesterday evening I moved a bit faster than on the first one; having this one available for taking measurements and so on made the job a bit easier. During next session, I will finish the cores, scratch and then bake them, adjust the position if needed, and then start with the main volumes. More to come!

Project XII work in progress (11) : the end!

Almost done! It still needs its base and that will be it! The pictures are a bit overexposed, but that colour is not so easy to capture with my camera. Anyways... it's kinda golden as this dude will be the trophy awarding the "Best of Show" of the next Painting Crusade, awarded by the event staff; its winner is also invited to be the head of the guest judges of the following edition. As usual, I wanted the BOS trophy of this edition to be connected with the exclusive mini(s), this year being the badass side of life.
