Default CH NightPigeon

Hi,

Losing BDay time....still got things to post.....

NightBringer Aka NightPigeon
Here's something that started off in the sketches section. Spent ages trying to figure out this guy. Finally got hold of the real model.
So generally he's getting wings added. He's had detailing done underneath the robes. Grinding away like a nutter and cut open the rips/tears. Also grinded (needs more I reckon), the left side of his legs where it's a bit blank - just wanted to continue the clothing a bit more.
Bit of a Duo-Wip. I'll try to do ParrotBoy side by side.
Anyway, gotta rush along now. Hope you enjoy;



Dusty

Greetings,
Out of all the types of wings to try, why did I go for feathers first! In the corner you'll see early attempts. Along the bottom is the base. In one of those pics you can just about see up his skirt where it's been carved out as well as the rips/tears along the edge (it'll look a lot better once painted).
This is just a 'attempt' at these wings for now, this guy will probably get another set.

Hope you enjoy,
Dusty

Hi guys,
So here he is. Still need to work out how they'll transit/blend-in with the body. Thinking of colour, suggestions please.
Update:



All the best,
Dusty
Now where did ParrotBoy flap off too?

That is really sexy.
I reckon a dark body with lighter wings could do the trick. Maybe a dull metalic grey for body and a much lighter, crisper, grey/white pair of wings? Just a thought. I don't want to take away the greatness of your sculpt with my shoddy ideas though. Cudos.

That is simply amazing. I don't know what else to say about it.

I'd say exact the opposite of what piemaster suggested... lighter body, darker wings

94% of teens have moved on to rap. If you are part of the 6% who still listen to real music, copy and paste this into your signature.
95% of teens would cry if they saw the Jonas Brothers at the top of a skyscraper about to jump. Copy and paste this if you are part of the 5% that would yell "DO A FLIP!!!"

Hey guys,
Thank you al for the nice comments and paint suggestions. I think metallics will be in there somewhere. And although a dark colour would be mean/grimy, I'm a bit concerned that the detail would get lost in shadow. So the skin tone will be pale (maybe with metallics), robes...well Euphrati suggested a rosey metal - Red/Pink? Perhaps blotchees of red on the wings?
Story behind it? Er....customer request? Then design & build. Once decided wings were feathers (and not bat for example), I like to give AKA names so dubbed it NightPigeon (although it's more following vulture really - 'Pigeon' sounds scarey?).
On product notes - Feathers were giving me a headache. Then it simply just struck me - I had a break-through (like in the matrix, I just simply 'knew' a different approach and tried it).
Continuing - Might add a few more smaller feathers as well as another complete set. Getting the feathers consistant was a bit of an issue. Base is pretty much done - Not sure whether to do those lava effects between the cracks. I think I might put additional weight in the base too for good measure.
Back to it,
Dusty
