The third main character for my Pilgrym setup is now finished along with couple of extras. Without any further forewords, meet Vogtemanne and the Twins.
I had pretty clear vision of the colour scheme for this one. The previous two characters, Adsum and Imettäjä, both had tri-colour combination used as a main frame – white, red and black. The same tri-colour combination would be chosen for Vogtemanne too. What I really wanted to do in Vogtemanne’s case was to pull out his sinister soul to life by using black as a main colour for his armour. It would also give him authority and firmness, something a character in his position would be much appreciated. His white hair, pale gritty face and white servo-skulls hanging from his armour would bring some cold contrast on him.
The face is again one of my best so far. When I was working on it (and oh boy did I used hours to get it right) I started calling him 40k Lee Marvin because of the close resemblance. Just see it yourselves. It was not my intention, but is really a nice coincidence since the roles played by the man were always very strong and defiant, something I believe this character would also breathe.
But what about the red skulls? Well, there is a story behind them too. Vogtemanne, who is in charge of the safety of the pilgryms in his party, uses servo-skulls to scout the narrow and dangerous corridors of the Terra for any suspicious activity. He brands his servo-skulls with blood red colour so that he can detect his skulls roaming ahead from a distance.
Here’s some more angles from the trio.
Finally a group shot from all three finished main characters along with the servo-skulls. Have a nice Sunday evening!
