Reaper's Kang, Half Orc - 2514

It's been awhile since I've had a chance to paint and I needed a rogue half orc for an rpg. Reaper to the rescue! Kang, Half Orc is another great looking figure by Reaper. Since this is for an rpg - I placed him on the more traditional 1" square.

Although I completed him on a rainy Saturday, I chose to use the layering technique for two reason. A) I'm quite comfortable using the layering technique versus wet blend and it's been awhile since I've painted and B) I was also working on several honey-do projects in-between layers.

I've provided a left side and right side view but they are very distorted as the hands cause the figure to sit very far off the scanner glass and depth of field is too great. But, you can get an idea, so I have provided them as well as the front and back view.
