Well... we have all seen this De-Motivational Poster...


When I first saw it, I laughed for hours. I built a model, and left it on my bit box for YEARS. As my boy inspired me to paint (see LINK), I saw it and decided to paint it.
I named him Brother Ignavus (Latin Translation). I tried few new techniques... in particular the shaved-head stubble (I got tired of the brilliant bald guys).

For my rusty painting hands, a 360o view with few close-ups for your tickle-bone's pleasure!















Enjoy... comments and critiques welcomed! Wink

I really like him. I think the shaved head look turned out really well. How did you do it? I have been meaning to try it, but haven't yet. The dirty banner looks really good too.

For some reason, your painting style and DeafNala's always seem quite similar to me. I'm not sure why. Maybe it is the photography (I believe you have photographed some of his models, correct?). Maybe it is the painting style.

Thanks for sharing. I am impressed with this recent burst of productivity;-).

Thanks for the nice comments.

I painted the head as normal, then I decided to make a watered-down grey-flesh mix. I then applied it to where the hair should be. The end result was a smooth (pun intended?) shadow. I remember thinking that it looked like me when I shaved my head a couple years ago. I was surprised at how easy it was. Next, I will try a 5 o'clock shadow for beard too!

The banner is the OLD school sticker... remember those? I had one, waiting for something special. I put some black wash on the corners and smudged it with my finger. Nothing fancy... just to simulate that the plasma gun had exploded before. Shocked

Well... my painting style is NOTHING like Master's DeafNala (I could not even dream to get close!) ... but I always try to emulate some of his stuff. He paints layers with thin stripes/coats... always borderline between perfection and complete ruin. Deaf is always perfect... one more line, and he would ruin his stuff. I have been VERY lucky and I have hold lots of his models (in person). I have taken some pics of his stuff too! Anyhow, I could not think my crappy models could get any higher compliment!

Glad you like it... and thanks for the feedback!
