@ThanosReXXX It is full on hold for now. It would require too much clay to finish and then I won't have a place to put it on. Also the buildings are all in the wrong size compared to each other.

It was definitely a stupid endeavor on my side I love HoMM games too much!

And now I have to manage your Zeus between my programming lectures and job

So there is zero chance of even attempting to finish it!

@Zuljaras Ah, I see. A bit more ambitious of a project than you might have been able to guess before you started, huh?

Too bad, though. It most certainly looked promising, but I can understand the decision.

He sure is, and I'll be looking forward to whatever he comes up with. I could suggest a style that I might have in my head, or might possibly prefer, but I've decided to let that go, and let him do his thing. That way, it'll truly be a one-off original, much like your statuette.

@ThanosReXXX I am open to a style you like to be honest as right now I only have some basic ideas in my head

Zuljaras

ThanosReXXX

@Zuljaras Well, that would kind of go against what I just said in my previous comment, now wouldn't it?
But, if that helps you in any way, I'll try and explain at least what my basic idea is. I hope you can use that to your advantage.

What I'm looking for is a more serious representation, so not something along the lines of what you can now for example see in that Ubisoft game that's currently out, even though the still images that they released prior to the game made him look pretty cool, albeit still kind of fat and not muscular enough for a king of the gods:

But now that I've played the demo and watched the cut scene in the introduction, I'm actually quite disappointed how he ultimately looks in the game itself:

As you can see, it's kind of the same as the initial drawing, but it looks more cheap, and the face and eyes look like one of those cheap knock-off dolls that you could buy from a Chinese website...

I suppose the key words are regal, powerful and commanding. Mind you, it doesn't have to be super-realistic, so it can still be an artistic representation instead of the "actual" image of Zeus from any of his real life statues:

But just not too cartoony, that's the most important thing.

There's plenty of artistic representations that do him more justice, provided of course that one feels that an imaginary being should be done justice. For me, it's more a thing of respecting ancient cultures and traditions, and the Greek culture is simply the one I'm the most interested in, and as such, I also value and respect the original representations of these stories and characters, rather than the comic book ones.

Here's some examples, but don't let these influence you too much. Just think of them as inspiration and/or examples of "along the lines of" what I'm looking for, so you could also combine elements from several of them, as you see fit. It needs to be a Zuljaras OriginalTM after all, and not a "made to order EXACTLY how ThanosReXXX wants it"...

And hey, if it makes your head spin too much trying to make sense of all of that, you could always choose to go for the Minotaur instead...

@ThanosReXXX Perfect. I want to make Zeus actually terrifying like he is supposed to be. Muscular and with electricity and with completely white eyes.

Zuljaras

ThanosReXXX

@Zuljaras Good. I'm pretty sure I'm going to enjoy the entire process, from wire frame to paint job, so I'm REALLY looking forward to what you have in mind. And thanks a million times for putting in the effort. I will not forget, and I'm already cooking up a reward scheme of my own...

@ogo79 It is dark green and there is some forest green mixed in.

@Zuljaras
i knew it, at least i thought it was a green color, man that is perfect, it really pops with the figure.

Zuljaras

@ogo79 Sonic is doing ok. He does not like being touched and is being very aggressive but from time to time there is a glimpse of calmness in him

If I knew he would survive a return to the wilderness I would have let him go but now I can't as he really likes hedgehog food. At least when holding him on his belly he does not try to bite my hand off

Zuljaras

ogo79

@Zuljaras
he probably needs you, and got used to yall, didnt you post a vid of him in a bubble bath?
cant find it anywhere

@ogo79 Yes and the weird thing is that he does not bite when in the bath Weird basic wild animal he is

@ogo79 I'm not requesting anything. He's going to have free reign, so I'll let myself be surprised by whatever he comes up with. And I don't really have a thing for naked men either, so not to worry.

Besides, a Zeus without some kind of robe wouldn't really be very regal at all...

@ThanosReXXX I have started Zeus. Currently I am in the very first rough stage of sculpting his body. Keep in mind that some/most of that will be covered by his majestic robe!
