Master of the North by pyro-helfier Master of the North by pyro-helfier
This is a diorama I made. I painted a real quick background for it in Gimp just to set the scene and I used a feather brush I DLed from somewhere on here for the trees. I sculpted all the snow drifts and grey rocks from scratch, as well as parts of the stump. The scratch built stump piece comes off to reveal the power switch/battery pack for the blue LEDs that are inside some of the icicles and covers part of the wires too. I resculpted part of the jawline so that the mouth would be closed in a snarl- the original model has an open mouth. I painted it by hand using only traditional brushes- no airbrush. I assure you this thing looks much nicer in person, much of the detail is lost in the photos. You can find more photos on our Facebook- www.facebook.com/HorrorCustoms

:nod:  I don't even know how many hours I put into that thing- it had to be close to 100, start to finish.

I'd love to see this without the background, which I think detracts from appreciating the model painting.
