This is an orc from a great new spanish miniature line, called Zenit Miniatures.
For the environment, I was imagining a scene in a sort of red earth wasteland, in late afternoon-evening approaching sunset with a reddish tinge to the light. So I tried to experiment with potraying this ambiance in the painting of the mini by using lots of glazes of a reddish-orange colour in the highlights and light areas, and the opposite colour - a green-blue - in the shadows and so on, to emphasise it. Although I played a little game in some parts, by reversing the colours hehe, for fun.
I tried something a bit more adventurous for the base this time as well, with a slightly larger scene. Apart form the base coats and a few highlights, the base is coloured entirely with pigments - artists' soft pastels.
