Greetings Terrans, how goes it? I apologise in advance, but this is another very quick post… time is beyond scarce at the moment, so painting has slowed to a crawl, and blogging is waaaay down the priorities list. Still, I hope you like this one today – I’m rather pleased to introduce you to ‘Gorslav the Gravekeeper’:
This, for me, is one of the stand-out models from the set, and I knew I wanted to really push the horror theme with this guy. The pale necrotised flesh is a nod to that, as is all the gore & body-horror stuff. I mean, look at the face – absolutely terrifying:
Not much to say about the painting really – I’ve pretty much got my approach nailed now, using Contrasts as a quick & easy basecoat, shading & highlighting back and forth, adding gunk and corrosion, and generally fiddling around the edges until I’m happy. It’s hard to explain really – very unstructured, but really relaxing & good fun.
Well, that’s all for now – hopefully Gorslav will have some fleshy zombies to hang out with next post. Meanwhile, on with the shit-show. I’ll catch you truckers on the flip side 😊
