Well, after talking to people on Chat, they said this should have it's own log, as its my first try at a full sculpt So here comes the idea:
Sculpting a Warg/Wolf just to see if I can. Here's the basis of the model and some scale shots.
Skeleton with Foil on it for bulk.
Scale with Marine, think marine is smaller than new ones.
Now, should it be furred fully or just at the ruff of the neck like a Warg? Also any ideas on how to do legs good?
Thanks for reading this :p Hope you enjoy.
Can I suggest trying to copy a GW one as closely as possible? That will give you something to compare with, push you to do stuff you might otherwise skip AND give you a guide.
Heroes now has the GF9 sculpting tool range too- that might be money well spent. No great art comes from skimping on tools.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
Good idea there, Monkey might go get some picture of GW's Wargs then
Also might have to buy some of the GF9 stuff if I can, why doesn't Heroes have a online store, I'd use that a lot, as it is sometimes a pain getting to Palmy. I can set up online sotres easy enough, but yeah, that would take afair bit of my time etc.
EDIT- Forgot about this, minor update neck and feet are added, no details yet just bulk.
Hehehe, that so reminds me of my mounted lord! I started in the exact same way. theres a guide on here http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...nted-lord.html Check it out, it may help. That was my first build too so its not too advanced!
For the fur just put a layer of greenstuff over the model, and using a wet tool, stab it quickly and randomly. The greenstuff will stick to the tool slightly and get pulled into a ragged fur type look. Also get hold of some pro create putty. Its so much better than greenstuff and better suited to smooth detail work like muscles and faces.
Finally, dont copy the GW ones too closely. If you try and re create one of theirs, youll just look at your own model and think it looks weak in comparison (unless your amazing and we just dont know it yet!) If you give it a more unique look, you wont have that comparison to worry about.
Taht looks great mace, might reference it a bit
I've tried minor pieces of fur before, so hopefully I can pull it on the large scale, Procreate? WOnder if I can get it in NZ.
I'll mainly be using the GW models for reference on muscles etc. And where the fur goes. DOubt I'm amazing but we shall see
This looks interesting. I think you are on the right path with researching your Warg before you go at it. I do agree with Macewind that you should not compare your end result to GW result. What you could try to do is look up Wargs. I read in Wikipedia that the Wargs were designed in the films to look less like wolves and much more like spotted hyenas with abit of bear and wolf mixed in. Here is where I read it.Warg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Here is also something about hyenas.Hyena - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
