Groknar of the North




Between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis, and the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an Age undreamed of. Hither came Groknar the Ork, cock in hand. Destined to wear the jeweled crown of Orkilonia upon a troubled brow. It is I, his chronicler, who alone can tell thee of his saga. Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!... It's 40 pics of classic pulp adventure only available at mongo-bongo-art.com. And the set download is free for members for next month(-ish).

Holy fucking shit. FINALLY done. I'm gonna go get some sleep now. I'll fill in the rest of this later.

UPDATE 2/5 - (more like random babbling, but w/e)

And to think, this set could have taken even longer. LOL. So first came up with this idea when I was playing around with the fur on Mynxie (on her clothes! geez you people). So I had this idea of "ZOMG! Fur on a Polar Bear or Seal! Or both!". So tried it on a bear figure I had. It was horrible. So looked around and found AM's awesome grizzly bear. The fur was perfect!... Too perfect, in fact. Took forever to render. You think Aery Soul hair is polygon intensive? That shit has nothing on this grizzly fur. I could barely even move the camera around in preview mode. Sure, the model comes with a warning that it requires a robust system. But who really pays attention to that? Besides, my laptop is a robust system... right? Yeah, I need to get a desktop. And of course the fur idea didn't quite work out for the Seal either. So we got to do "Adventures with Bump Mapping". Which after a bit of work came out rather acceptable.

Let's see, what else can I babble at you about?... Jenny! Because our little 3d render circle-jerk would not be complete without MOAR Jenny. So our good buddies over at Affect3D did a little interview with her last week. So check it out, some amusing drama in the comments section as well (plus more over on Zzomp's blog). And really you should check out Affect3D fairly often. Despite their pathological hatred of elves (:-P), and occasional questionable product reviews (:-P), they are a fantastic news source for what's out there in the render world (or 3DX as they refer to it).

What else? Hmmm. Epoch is slaving away on his Dark Rift comic for his neat little DCV (Dynamic Comic Viewer) program. Sci-fi opera meets Serenity meets Mass Effect, plus a bunch more sex. So keep checking out his site for updates.... And Erogenesis is getting closer to Lali Bits getting released. Yay!... Both Dizzy and Jomish have some great sets out in the past couple weeks. And ZenZen is busting out crazy amounts of work. So check them out as well!

fantabulous work, definitely worth the wait!
so many great details, just to name a few:
her airy built, esp. her delicate hands & fingers...
her super stylish shoes and leggings...
how he ties her up with her own fancy braid in pic #17...
the only implausible thing is him supposedly wearing "his crown upon a troubled brow" -
there may be lots of troubles in his realm,
but i'm quite positive none of those are his ;)

and, yeah, i forgot to mention the makeup!
if there were more girls around here,
i'm sure they'd ask her to do a youtube tutorial on it!

Well that explains why Coke didn't use the polar bear in their super bowl commercial!

great set!

Wow this was great Mongo! I haven't masturbated to a dead polar bear since I learned about global warming! : D

Nice set. To bad the bear got killed and couldn't join in the fun.

Ah Groknar, how we love you violating maidens. Of course, the time you "vanquished" those dryad sisters was most memorable..

Great set MB.

When i saw first few renders in this set, first thing that came to my mind was "warranty void if seal broken"

Aburrar said...

Great set, well worth a wait. Particularly appreciated the increased use of fluids - can't be easy to get right, but adds that extra something. Missed that in the otherwise excellent New Years set, esp. the 3rd pic.
