Moment Before The Thump
This was specifically made for Mickle's Immersion Contest. This was my first time using a white sheet, and also my first time trying a rock face. It was also my first time trying cobbling.
About this creation


Mickle's Immersion Contest is about choosing something we take for granted in a video game, and making it like it would be in real life. Examples given were fall height, FPS multiplayer, horde mode, and equipment storage. Mine is shots to kill. In many games, such as LOTR The Third Age, enemies don't die after hits that would kill them in real life. In The Third Age I repeatedly shoot orcs in the stomach, and they don't die. My entry is one of the same nature. In this picture you can see what would really happen if you shot an orc in the stomach once. He would obviously be thrown back, or killed.



A forward view. Here you can see the rock face clearly, although I think it looks better in angled pictures. As you can see I did not put any detail on the sides. The reason for this is because the setting is a mountain pass.



I used a unique technique of orc blood flying as the arrow pierces the midsection.



An overview which shows the cobbling I spent about an hour on. (My collection is not sorted, instead I have a large container full of my pieces.)



Here you can see the 'arrow' thrusting through the torso/leg section. I took one of those joystick pieces, and put it through that area like you would a sword, or spear. I then attached a stud to add some extra blood. Yes, orcs do have black, not some other color, blood.

I hope you enjoyed:)

Very nice rockwork and cobblestones! I do suggest you get that collection sorted, though! It'll make building much easier ;)

This turned out great! The rock wall looks very realistic and the use of the white sheet for a neutral background really makes it stand out. Nice work.

Nice one! Good topic too, enemies (and allies) don't die easily enough in most games.

Nice, the blood seems kind blocky though. Maybe using a blue crystal.

Pretty nice, i like the bow. In an other use, it could have been a staff.

It wouldn't necessarily kill them, but they wouldn't be charging afterthey got hit. >Eric

Quoting Tasty Muffins The blood is indeed black but I think the effect you're going for would be better demonstrated with red to differentiate the blood from the arrow. Also one arrow would certainly maim but not necessarily kill unless it was to the head, heart or lungs.
Orcs might have different insides, or they might be arranged differently. Also, I said it might kill him. At least knock him down, and seriously wound him.

I've wondered about the number of hits that it takes to kill enemies in several games. Nice ceration all around, the arrow with blood is a great idea. Also, the rocks look nice.
