Work In Progress Of A Wolfy Gladiator, Lupa ! ( Arena Rex Kickstarter Exclusive )


Lupa - WIP (Click to enlarge)

Hello to Everyone,


As promised in my last article, I give you pictures of Lupa work in progress !

For those who did not know yet ( Uh ? ), Lupa is the Exclusive Miniature for Arena Rex Kickstarter, and this Kickstarter will end this very Sunday, the 21st of April !

If you are interested, you know what to do !
;)

You may have already seen pictures of the very first stage of her volumes and the base for her Hammer in a previous article...

At this stage, the basis for her head and clothes are made, anatomy and whole shape a bit more defined and even some textures have been tested on the different leather and skin clothes...
Feet have been advanced as well...

At this point, I am very satisfied with the shape and the balance between her anatomy that needs to be voluptuous in an attractive way (... do you know her background... ? ) and I already have added some details such as the belt buckle or the knot and strings on her back.


Wolfy did you say ?

... Then, some volumes are added to create what will be the skin and fur of a wolf, wrapped around the lower left leg and shoulders...
The head of the dead wolf will come on her right shoulder...

... I then started to work on the wolf fur texture.
The upper part of the fur wrapped around her leg is what might be the final texture.
I also made one of the stripe with a knot just to have a better idea of the result.
Face was slightly continued as well.

And then, I added the basis of her Hammer to get a good look at the dynamic and volume in the space she would occupy...
I'm pretty happy so far !

... Gladiator... Or Gladiators ?

You have seen some pictures of Otho WIP in these pages or via the Kickstarter updates...
I wanted to show you them both together...
Hope this is as exciting for you as it is for me !

I should be able to show some pictures of Otho during the week end, specially of his right arm...
It is full of volumes, textures and details !
... Next time !
;)

Well, as someone who pledged in the Arena Rex Kickstarter, I cannot wait to have Lupa in my hands in December (if all goes well)! Hopefully you will be able to pose an update sometime soon :)

Salutations de Suisse et bon courage!
