FM: Ludo - Friend?

by Roman aka jar



Hi Jungle!

BrokenToad's last years Kickstarter about Jim Henson's Labyrinth & The Dark Crystal was a big success as the theme from the movie really makes the hearts of Fantasy Fans worldwide jump. Such unique and great characters.

I recently painted Ludo, sculpted by Lucas Pina and all I can say it that it was a joy to breathe life into this big friendly monster.








This unique painted bust by me is for sale.

Work in Progress insight:

I took not many photos of the process on the paintob, but some and I want to share them with you.
First one, shows my basic color applications. He was pretty yellowish/ochre/brownish ...

The next photos will explain to you how I painted the eyes.
The process on the full figure already much further than the first WIP, but hey, eyes explanation are always good, right?


1. I was working with a reference. Important. I painted the full eyeballs black, followed by an off white that includes some of the ochre skintone, not much, just a tiny drop to make the white off white.
See, friend?

2. Next step: I was marking the center of my Iris/pupil with a small
black dot in both eyes (can be easily repaired if its a fail). Then I painted
the base of the Iris/pupil area with black and concentrate to make it a round
circle. If you have trouble with it, just repair with the off white.


If it fits, it fits ...



3. I painted orange on top of that, but left a black outline

4. I intensified the orange by adding more and more yellow to it
and focused painting it on the lower part of the iris//pupil

5. When intense enough for my taste I added black tiny dots again to mark the
center of the eye for the pupil ...

6. I then painted the pupil and white reflection into the eyes ...
