Ork Gargant. Da body (Pt.2)

 OK! We were coming from this post! About time I show some progress!

I left you with the front of the Gargant in its basic colours. Here you can see the same process on the back of the monster:

First layer of basic colours

So once I had finished Stage 1 all over I begun to think about details. For example that bulge on the front. The Ork Boob. Now you can't unread it. Ork Boobs.

Not too original, I know

Not sure if a moon or cheese

Oldschool Bad Moon!

I highlighted the plates, rivets and flames and gave consistent colours to all the rest of the pieces. I'm assuming you can hardly tell from the pic below, so please take my word. I really did it


It took a ludicrous number of hours and it even doesn't show on the pic. Great

 I added some small details here and there, but I didn't want to overdo it, I think it already has quite an amount of focal points to draw your attention.

I just did a few small trimmings and so

OK, so what if we spend some time on da feet?

Same process than the rest of the body. Yellow primer, yellow Contrast, you know.


Can you read this?

The same thing but after washes and highlights

Painting these glyphs I'm becoming with a crazy idea. Well, even crazier than the regular stuff. I was thinking that it would be cool if colour had an actual impact on Ork language. Just the same that happens for example in Japanese, in which sometimes the same written word can have different meanings depending on the pronunciation. What if different colour combinations on the glyphs made different nuances on the meaning of the word?

Well, OK, whatever. Anyway, I painted these randomly, so I'm not giving it much more of a thought. Maybe next time.

Next step was the super delicate moment of weathering the whole thing. I was really sure that it needed something, but definitely not too much. It had to be bright. Yellow. Oldschool.

In the end I only used the old sponge trick and restrained myself, so the pieces still looked decent.


Da finished feet
 

The same goes for the rest of the body. Dark brown with the sponge, mainly wherever I had previously screwed the paintjob in any way :D

I additionaly washed the rivets in brown and slightly weathered the pieces.

So this is it for now!


Large Ork for scale reference

Hey ya! Watch your step!

Colourfest!

Weren't you just going the opposite direction just a second ago?

 Progress on this beast is necessarily slow, as it takes a lot of hours on every tiny thing you decide to add, but I have to say I'm enjoying every minute spent on it.

Da Gargant is becoming real!

    1. I was scared to death before I started, this beast is really challenging for my skills, but now that I've left the hardest part behind I hope the rest will be easier!

  6. Awesome work thus far! The classic colours really work on the oldschool stylings of the big guy and I can't wait to see him finished!

    1. Thank you! I think that colour was the only thing I was sure about. I knew I couldn't paint it in a modern way, it had to look like glorious late 80's-early 90's. I hope I'm getting close to it!

  8. This thing is completely bananas. I can't even imagine the amount of work that you're doing... I think this would take me years. But it looks great so far!

    1. Thanks! Well, it's a hell of a time consuming project, I'm afraid. There's no point in saying otherwise. Though it can be stagnating sometimes, it's quite rewarding to see finished pieces! :D

  9. Your timing is excellent as always ... I'm currently reading Caves of Ice by Sandy Mitchell aka a Caphias Cain adventure and there is a gargant in it. Your excellent work here gives me something to visualize as I read the book :)

  10. Pero qué maravilla de avance, me encanta especialmente esa Luna Malvada que has logrado pintar. Los glifos son la fiesta del daltónico, pero no desentonan nada, todo lo contrario, cuando lo ves en conjunto, queda de lujo.

    La paciencia y el trabajo que estás dedicando en pintar esta locura, está dando unos frutos maravillosos

    Bravo
