Decorated Brass Scorpion

Postby odinsgrandson » Fri Feb 24, 2012 11:49 am

Here's a Brass Scorpion that I did for a commission a little while ago. I really enjoyed doing all kinds of crazy freehand and filling those panels. Filling them with grotesque images that would please Khorne was really quite a bit of fun, and worked well with the theme that the mini already has going for it.

Anyway, here he is, with a slew of detail shots.

Also, I've posted him up on CMON for anyone who cares to vote.

Gruf - This project took me quite a while. I work full time on commissions like this, and while I don't remember exactly how many days I spent on it, I remember it was over a week.

That's a 40 hour week, by the way. This thing was probably close to 60 hours or so.
