Default Tweetytunes "Stand Guard" Battle

Right I am going to do one of two ideas - A Centaur with a long spear or axe or a Skeleton solider with spear/sword and shield.

Just getting some research before starting 2mo, but I am really stuck in the middle right now on which one will work best. Maybe working today will come up with some ideas.

Well going for the Skeleton idea. Collected some ref



Out of it all I loved the image of the one sat on the thrown dead - but don `t like the armer. So my idea is explained here



Off to work now - will get cracking once I get home

Well here we go - 2 hours in and I have the skull almost done. Not going for super real with this one, but not cartoon-e iva. Might add more detail after but for now it will do - as alot of this will be hidden with helmet.



Hoping to get spine done before sleep - been a long day but that part looks easy

Loving the start on your's as well Tweety, you're both working well speed wise so far!

I like both your work so I'll be equally as happy whoever comes out the winner on this, and it'll be fun watching both of your progress!

This skeleton is really easy - I thought it would be hard - About to do hip area which will be a challenge as most ref images have this area blocked by other bones. But looking at many different photos I think I`ll get it right.

The hard part will be getting the armer and the pose right. Other wise he looks like a lost extra from evil dead.

This guy is going in to Haz Matt now aswell - been going over my ideas for that and found a hole this guy (without the armer) can fill.

Nice updates man.

Yeah, the hips looks like they could be a pain to get done.

oh, and try not to move too fast.... you're making me look slow.
