Clockwise from left in first circle: Peasant Woman, Peasant Man, Noble Woman, Noble Man, City Guard, Captain of the Guard, Collector, and Bandit. General NPC encounter type folk on this page, 27 minis in all.
Second circle: Skeleton Warrior, Ogre Skeleton Warrior, Skeleton Warrior, Necromancer, Skeleton Warrior, Zombie. Yeah, the second page is all skeletons (15 human sized, 2 Ogre sized) and Zombies(5) with the Necromancer. 23 in all, plus seven piles of bones.
I've bought a few sets of Arion figures that I like. I didn't buy them for the tri-fold or tent versions. I like ALL of the figures you've done in this illo. It would be a lot of work in most of them, and next to impossible for some to do back artwork.
I don't think the problems stem from orthographic project but rather from pronounced foreshortening, which some poses require.
kiladecus faced some of the same problems when he worked on Dark Skull Studio's "New Gods of Mankind: Anointed" sampler, as discussed on the "Dark Skull Announces" thread.
He solved the problem by mirroring the front art for the back, but printing the back in a grey scale, instead of color. That seems to suit my tastes quite well!
I'm not usually a fan of computer generated artwork, but the work you've exhibited is the best I've seen. You've managed somehow to overcome some of the CGI tell-tales. Good work!
And I'm looking forward to building some of your figures. Are there any Wolfen in the pipeline?
