Ogre Berzerker - C23 Ogres
OK, quick one today, just a palette cleanser while doing long run work on other projects just to keep my motivation up ! Painting Gutlagg clearly showed me I need to paint some models for fun and with no project or commitment associated, just for the sheer pleasure of painting. Like I explained earlier, to paint more and better, getting stuff you like done instead if stuff you have to do can be rewarding, when you don't want to paint, painting more but something else can help, anyway, I just grabbed this guy on top of the leadpile (literally the first ogre I had around) and just started bocking colours for fun.It took me little time (not many areas to paint) and then in a few hours I was mostly done ! Why did I pick that dark tone for hs skin ? I don't really know, I thought it would look cool and since he's mutated I thought he deserved a fancier skintone than usual.
What is completely a coincidence is how I knew I wanted blue pants and tartan and ended up with a pure 90's grunge look... Well I've been dressed like that enough to let it go right ? ^^'
I honestly didn't try to push things really far and stayed well far from the borders of my comfort zone but it's served its purpose, one model done, motivation levels up and I didn't plenty of other things in the meantime so there will definitely more of these !
