–Who do you work for?
–Then imagine I’m Him and you won’t be far wrong.
Full circle, literally years in the making, the third and final pat of the trilogy is “finished”. The Good, The bad and the Ugly. A trilogy of work that studies the God Emperor’s holy ordos. (You can see each one in their respective gallery here.)
I’m uncharacteristically speechless. This group is sort of testament to how I approach the hobby. It’s the imagination, story, curiosity and exploration in every aspect of it: converting, painting, display and photography, and this is all I got at this time.
If there ever was a group models I wish I could show you in person its the Illuminati Aquila. I’ve done everything I can to show what they look like in photos, but while I think I capture maybe 90% of the feel and look of my Clea Fenryka, I’d say, these guys not the same. The incredible contrast of their armor, equipment, skin, light and shadow is hard to convey. I am going to repaint the roses to much more magenta and purplish hue now that things are ready and they stand out the wrong way in my opinion. But here we go.
The Emperor Protects!
The second set of images is to try and give you another perspective to the paint jobs. These images below are shot on a cloudy day next to big open windows and capture the materials and feel from a mother direction quite accurately. The set above is shot at the same time, under the drawers of my desk to create that dark backdrop, and in addition to natural light I’ve used a neutral/cold temperature LED task light to help with drama.
Thanks for looking and please take a moment to add your comments. It’s not every day one gets to finish such a long standing vision and effort.
