Hi everyone, I need your help. I feel as if I am at a bit of an impasse. I am currently painting an armed force of ancient skeletons. The primary reasons for taking this project was to practice my OSL on the eyes, and trying my hand at verdigris for the first time. I love how both the skeletons and the ancient metal are coming out. However, I feel as if there is not enough contrast on the models, and when viewing them from tabletop distance, they look too... homogeneous. Do they look "boring" to anyone else? Does anyone else have a suggestion for how to fix them?
I'm working on a pair of minis for a friend's D&D ranger. I have the wolf pretty much done -- and I'm generally happy with him. But...the face! I don't feel like he has a face. The eyes don't stand out at all (I tried some brighter orange-yellow shades and ended up with something that looked like The Joker's lapdog). The whole face seems to just moosh into the rest of the body and disappear. I know this is a contrast thing -- I just have no idea how to attack it. I tried brightening highlights, I tried glazing in shadows. All I end up with is a darker or lighter version of the same problem. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks, Group Mind!
Ok ... so its been a few months since I've been on here. But i got tasked with doing a one shot campaign and a guy coning asked me to make a mini.... a tiefling... with a rapier... thats a warlock... (crap) and these were my marching orders for color... I like red a black but this just seemed like a blob waiting to happen... So i ended up with this... I basically decided to prime in grey and use dark wash to tint on the black instead of using paint.... as it seemed to be the only way to keep the color he wanted and have it be softer like the studded leather he is "wearing" instead or armor. I used gloss black for the eyes cause i like the effect if the light creating the "iris's that follow" you when the mininis turned. however being its d&d tieflings have tails and he wanted tail... its my first green stuff sculpt. Man that junk is sticky! i had water on it me table tools... stuck to everything anyway. So i'd like to know what you all think... i want to "highlight" the skin mainly cause he is serious about wanting clothes dark dark...Suggestions on black on black no contrast mini's? Oh and greenstuff tips would be great... like shoukd i wait longer than 30 mins to sculpt it? etc etc... Thanks!
Hey All, I'm finally happy enough with this one to call it finished. This was my first real attempt at blending, and while there is a bit of stepping in some places I think the piece is still better for the attempt. I do wish the surface texture was a bit smoother in some places. Perhaps I need to clean my minis better before starting. All comments and criticism are very welcome.
