Hi All,

So begins my Fubarnii painting adventure. My Hasslefree order arrived a while ago but as expected Life(TM) had other plans.

Last Sunday I got a couple of hours to sit down, clean and set up the models for painting (Engineer and Trader). First up, the Trader at 80% work in progress and non-setup photos:

Trader with Casani Origins (olive tones)


I'm tempted to remove the orb and use something else there instead, but may end up painting it as a glass sphere. The eyes are set up to be coloured with gold irises, so the pupils are overly large, besides that a few other details to go. Mounted on the classic Twilight base and a few finishing touches, then he will be complete. This and use a better camera! hah.

Overall, fun model to paint, responded well to washes and the surface was very smooth with little fuss cleaning mold lines. Enjoyed painting this little guy so far, my partner thinks they're just adorable. One question though, is there an article on the forum about Fubarnii fashions?

I'm still modifying the Engineer, so more on him soon.

At this point I think I'll work on models based around the Great Lakes, themed to suit. Smiley

thanks!
Taelan.

Looking good!
No articles from any Empire fashion experts as far as I recall... Fancy ruffs and ornate headgear are certainly in fashion, as are tail extensions (there is a thread on Fubarnii nobility somewhere). This traveller is a bit more practical in his garb, but those bright colours are certainly not out of place.
I like the choice of green, and the freckling looks spot on (excuse the pun).

Lovely understated colour scheme. I like the subtle stripes on his trews.

The attention to the detail is what sells this one for me. The freckles, the buckles/jewelry, the eye catching use of blue... awesome.

I can't wait to see the engineer.

I really like the colour play, the orange is set off by the blue and olive very nicely.

Thanks all,

A contract I picked up has had me all over the show the last few weeks. Finally back home and in my studio, so onwards to finish the trader and complete the Engineer build Cheesy

Appreciate all the feedback and comments on your favourite picks in the painting Cheesy

Well couple of months since I last post in my project log. Snowed under by recent work, the best of reasons to be held back from modelling and drawing Cheesy

I've been quietly mimicking the art style of Twilight. Progressing from some pretty shocking beginnings (squiggly outlines and terri-bad proportions) working my way up like a novice, when time could afford, to 50/50 success.

Suffice to say I feel I'm closing in faster with each sketch. This is my latest Enuk rider :



My own critique so far after stepping away:
  • Legs need to be more slender, longer even. (both mount & rider)
  • Neck needs to be about a 1/5th longer I think.

Love to hear some critique from the community, helps align what my mind's eye is seeing.

Looks good Taelan. One thing I'd say is that I'm not getting as big a sense of movement from the rider as I am from the mount; perhaps have the rider leaning forward slightly.

Apart from that, and your comments, I think you've hit it pretty much spot on.

The pic is drawn neatly and competently, but everything on the Enuk needs to be longer

And the rider needs to be leaning into the saddle at the implied speed

Nicely done tho. Getting there
