    Monster rider "The Stalker" - Evilivo

    Hi all, this is my first thread in this forum. After a long lurking here - like a few years, which were very inspirational - I finally got something to show. The theme of the challenge at Shiflett Brothers' forums, of which I first read here, got me enthusiastic and I decided to give it a try. This is my first bigger sculpt, I usually work smaller scale and with colored clays. I think there's nothing special to explain - rough concept, armature, bulking and detailing... Right now I'm finishing the details on the monster and I'm about to start the rider, because the deadline, which seemed so far ahead, suddenly is knocking at the door Comments and crits are most welcome, thank you in advance and thanks fore getting me into serious sculpting again

















    P.S. Can somebody tell me how to put an image that appears next to the thread's headline, thanks

    Nice!
    Love the details.

    * to add the picture on the thread use the manage attachments tab when you post/edit.
    attach it directly to conceptart.org and it will take the first picture on the thread and stick it as the threads avatar. i think .

    Thanks a lot guys, you are very encouraging
    A small update - I baked the monster yesterday and almost ruined him today by accidentally spilling some superglue on him! I was trying to fix the pose of those hands before starting to bulk them. Luckily for me I managed to clean it. Could do better with the skin, but time's running up So now at least I can work on the saddle and rider more comfortly, without fear to destroy more detail.



    And the other side:

    Greyguy, VulgarDragon, Scottfro, Hyperkid - thank you all for the kind words
    Now to the finished sculpt... I'll copy/paste the description from the thread at Shifletts:
    I'm officially naming it "The Stalker". I imagine him as a scout from some tribe of tough creatures. Sometimes his prey is some animal, sometimes - enemy of the tribe - for him and his loyal beast it's all the same. I imagine them having a strong bond and understandig each other with bare gestures and sounds (that's why I decided not to put reins). The medium is a mix of super sculpey with some other polymer clays, FIXIT for the bow and real feathers for the arrows. The scale is about 1:18 - the rider is about the hight of G.I.Joe or SW action figure. And now, after this long and boring intro - "The Stalker".









    I'm wondering about if I should paint him... Or just do some more dark wash and some drubrushing with lighter colors... I'll be happy to hear some of your thoughts about that, as I have limited experience in painting - I usually work with colored clays.

    looks great as is, very natural and muddy, if you are going to paint anything just paint the eyes on the orc / goblin figure. It'll bring it more to life, otherwise leave everything else as is. Great Work

    the rider looks really great. nice job. though it might be too late the only thing it seems to be missing is something on the saddle for the rider to hold on to. i love the grey colour as well.

    Wow, this is just great. Can't believe how fast you pulled this wonderful sculpt off. I would go for shades of earthly colors (brown, grey, dark green, etc.) with some accent colors (copper, gold, etc) for his jewerly, weapons, etc.) The beast could really look good in shades of grey or brown with mottled patterns. Muddy green would also look good....

    Thank you so much for the good words, guys As I mentioned above, it was my first attempt to do something bigger and with good detail, I'll post soon some of my older stuff and you will see what I mean
    I agree with you on the gray color sceme - I'll try just to add some shades of the color and as Vulgar Dragon suggested, go for some earthly colours for the base, but in no case want him to be colourfull I also intend to give his accesories some accent, but we'll see - I have to buy some paints first.
    Scottfro - I thought same as you and raised the front part of the saddle (I think the term is "pommel") - you can see the difference between the baked monster and the final pics. I didn't make the "horn" part, though - my idea was that The Satlker is tough enough to hold himself without it

    Finished piece looks great! The grey works really well for both beast and rider, perhaps only some light washes of browns and tans to give it a little bit of colour variety. It strikes me that they would both probably be more or less one shade of dust-colouredness from travelling anyway.

    Amazing work. The design of the creature is really food. I'd keep it grey. It gets out the shape really good and it leave some to the imaginagtion, wich allways is a good thing.

    I really liked this guy from the first time i seen him; right from the concept. Amazing work. I'm not sure but I think colour might be cool to see on him.

    Great Job!

    I love the monster, it looks great. The nails on front limbs wouldn' t be so big, if they don' t touch the ground, but maybe the monster uses them to dig the ground, I don' t know.
    The little lizard on the ground is adorable.
