Flesh Tearers Chaplain finished!


 Coming up from my previous post, I have just finished the Flesh Tearers Chaplain I have been working on for the past few days. Following my client's requests I changed some things and added some more details as you can see compared to the previous WIP pics. The main change was the glow in the eyes. I had a feeling that it wasn't right and I couldn't get it done correctly. After many tests and failed attempts I decided that the problem is the helmet, it has no distinct eyes to work on the glow effect so therefore it fails to be accurate enough... so I scrapped it altogether and returned to the previous scheme.

Continuing from my last post where I accompany my posts with a music track that accompanied and inspired my painting on the figure, this time music is dark, gloomy and slow... and I feel that it fits the model's character perfectly! Enjoy (well at least those that are into this kind of music, but I think we all like Black Sabbath don't we? :P )

I am quite happy with the result, hope that you like him as well! I would love to hear from you as always and of course see your votes on CoolMiniOrNot

Flesh Tearers Chaplain WIP

Hello once again!

I am currently working on yet another commission, this time its a fully converted Chaplain.

The conversion is courtesy of my client, a great one and so much fun to paint by the way!

Ah, and for those that wonder about the change from the usual Blood Angels, the conversion started as a BA Chaplain, but changed camps somewhere in the middle... :P

Still have some things to finish, probably in a couple of days I will have the final pics! 

One last thing that I will experiment with my blog, starting from this post onwards is adding a music track to accompany my posts. I thought of this as a nice way to share with you people the music that accompanied me during my painting and maybe the tunes that inspired me.

 Züül is an American Heavy Metal band that - believe it or not - released this song last year... talking about a giant leap in time for those familiar with this kind of music. The title also played its part in the degree of inspiration for me as well ;)
