I can't believe that i've missed this forum so far!
My name's Andrew Cothill and i'm trying to learn to sculpt miniatures in 3D (Zbrush). I've been at it for about 9 months now. I don't mind brutal crits so please feel free to tear into it and i'll try to taken them on board for my current WIP =)
Here's the concept i was working from by the super talented Klaher Baklaher
Here's a sketchfab link to the model too. It's heavily decimated to fit on the site
Thanks for looking and have a good day!
Okay so I dug around in the drawer and pulled out six unpainted bones that I got in my batch that I bought.
I gave them all a thorough scrub with a brush and warm soapy water and a toothbrush. The ogre needed straightening up so I poured hot water over to readjust and then under cold to set.
I attached all six using superglue to fender washer bases. I got this tip on you tube and have been sticking to it since I started this process. They are running out so I will look for an alternative afterwards. But these are good and solid and make a good base.
So now I have to decide which figure to work on....
I have not primed any and up until now I have primed using "151" matt black spray paint. I did not know exactly what to use so I tried this when I began.
I did pick up slightly after the photo and start to apply some blue to the Anhurian soldier using the same blue I mixed for a figure I was painting late last night. But without primer it did not seem to want to settle very well.
The two figures I have seen painted are by Doctor Faust ; the hell hound and the ogre.
Any comments/suggestions or generally helpful advice is gratefully welcomed.
Okay gonna have another attempt at posting on here. This time I think I have found the right forum topic as last time I posted I think I may have put the pic in the wrong topic. I've tried to get the camera on a steady surface this time and snapped a goblin I just did while listening to my team lose 2-0 - so this kept my mind nicely elsewhere. I have tried to thin the paint a little this time and add a little highlight. I'm not too unhappy with this so I've jazzed up the base a little with some welsh slate and quarry dust again. It's not perfect but it's finished anyway.
So I spotted what looked like a sweet little wolfman, unpainted but inked a little over the metal and glued to a square of wood in a comics shop some while ago and bought it and took it home and pried it off the old base and discovered it said "Grenadier 1987." Score!
Turns out it is a werejackal, coded MM93, and was first released as part of the set "Monster Manuscript Vol. XI" which also included the one Nosferatu-type vampire I didn't have in zer old days from the set of three I painted recently.
Anyhow, I cleaned it up and painted it like a black-backed jackal 'cos they look cool.
There is no WIP thread.
Also I had a picture book of Zimbabwe and decided to play a little bit with backgrounds.
