Lord Graviax, Canadian Slayer Sword 2007

Lord Graviax, Canadian Slayer Sword 2007

This year I set myself to a great personnal challenge: Attempt my first full sculpt, and no NMM! I must confess that the torso is a plastic terminator chest which I enlarged and re-worked, but otherwise my result is all sculpted.

It appears my motto since the Juggernaut remains true: Pushing yourself to go above and beyond what you can currently do is the best way to learn and improve your work. I honestly never thought I could achieve a result I would be so proud of. It is far from a perfect sculpt, but I have learned a lot through it, in both sculpting and painting. I owe Jérémie (Bragon) zenithal light sourcing and Allan the Steel metallics. I like to think my work on the red and gold is my own "Messieurs, je vous remercie et vous salue!"

I hope you enjoy this adaptation of my style, moving towards more realistic effects, though it retains a certain fantasy appeal in the colors which I enjoy. I believe it is my best work to date, and I look forward to my next full sculpt project, this time I will go for more organic shapes... and no more red for a while

Wow man, that's an amazing figure. I don't mind losing to something this good I wish I was able to attend in person instead of just doing the regional qualifier thingy. I bet he's even more impressive in 3D. There's definitely a Warmachine kinda look to this guy, he has Khador written all over him. That's a good thing by the way, Khador's my favorite!

I can't say much more than I was positively esctatic to see this in person. You are a MASTER.

By the Gods -- the dark ones to be sure -- this is a masterwork. I hate to say this, but while I am blown away by the sculpt and the painting, and even the eye of terror mosaic on the base, Graviax's face doesn't seem Khornish enough. I kind of wish it was tattooed or somesuch. Anyway, take my criticism lightly as this piece is an incredible accomplishment.

Wow, fantastic work. Great dynamic pose and the painting is awesome. Congratulations on the sword. Are the cracks in the skull on the shoulder sculpted or painted?
