Art of Marko Djurdjević

"Bog-Nar and the Nekroid were already established characters in the Warlords of Wor mini-comics, but Gol is an original character created specifically for the new toy line. I needed a third head for the set, so in keeping with the swampy, muck creature theme, I decided to resurrect a long-shelved project and breathe some fresh life into it.

Six years ago I started sculpting a mask for a Mer-Man costume. A lot of the influence for my design came from the art of Marko Djurdjević[1], who had done some insane MOTU re-imaginings. The project ultimately ground to a halt and a mask was never produced from the sculpt.

When designing parts for the Bog-Nar set, I went back to that sculpt to bring a "lagoon creature" into the world of Wor. Pictured then is my original sketch of Gol, the digital sculpt by Simon Grell[2], the first factory test shot, an early color mechanical (note the different spot pattern), and the final product (beautifully shot by Matt Stein)."[3]
