not sure what that means? I wanted him to have stubble as it seems to go well with the whole heroic square jaw :barbarian:

as for whats next...... gotta finish the furniture off. with a tutorial in there too.
ive got a load of figs to rebase. im going to give the other heroes complete new sculpts. I also wanna get the art of molding perfected as a lot of thing like doors and stuff I could do with being casted.
then its onto completing my ahq bestiary. and finishing off the last og the HQ figures ive got lying around....ive got lots in the works. but I do plan on proxy replacing all the monsters from HQ too at some point. maybe in 20 years ill get finished hehe :skull:

Came off wrong, eh?
It was meant as a very very deeply felt compliment. I love that beard as I do all of your work you've shown us.
I wanted to convey that your talent still surprises me.

It's just crossed my mind how similar you're barbarian's sculpt is to this old HQ image...

Coincidence?

Great paint job, any tips on how to do the stubble?

The original Barb (not the prototype) looks like he's hugging his sword, and is about to whisper a secret to it.

well ill be hundred percent honest. that I haven't exactly come up with a totally unique idea. ive seen a few versions of the hasslefree hawk figure which ive used. as a barbarian variation. so no real coincidence. ive kind of taken a few ideas ive seen around the internet to create this dude. of which I claim no ownership to any of the ideas. im shamelessly in debt to those creators that make the great stuff that inspires me :)

ive never seen that image before. great picture!
as for stubble. its easy, with more people being aware what washes and glazes are these days makes it easier to convey how something is painted.
I simply got the mid range tone for my skin and mixed it with a little grey. it did turn out a little lighter than I had hoped for. but still it looks good enough.
so with that mixture just water it down to about 30% paint 70% water. and glaze it where the stubble goes. (I do keep a paintless brush handy at this point if I need to drain any excess away rapidly) as you want to keep that paint layer pretty subtle or you will just end up with a grey chin. :)

anyways ive put this up on my blog with my entire journey to creating him. take a read (ive included a few others barbarians to so that if anyone ever searches they can see others great creations too)
but ill throw the piccies here too

Lovely work man, and have to agree - very similar pose to the Event artwork. Wish that knight in the background made it into miniature form :(

Top stuff :D
