Resolutionary Painting Challenge 2017 Chatter/Questions

Recommended Posts

So, anyone planning to fingerpaint a microbust of a horror creature??

 

Very interesting challenges.  And since I still haven't decided my Jan/Feb plans yet, I might give one or more a try!

In monochrome? ::P:

I think there's crippling size limitations on your fingers with that, but if you can pull it off, go for it

im going to skip the finger painting - but the micro bust sounds kinda fun. 

I am currently painting up the fire dragon 77109  - it is relatively small, but fits best on a 3" base.  is that 2 or 3 figures worth?

I think now that this is bi-monthly, I'll give it a go.

I finished DDS2 in January... that's 5 adventurers, a dragon and a crapton of terrain... I assume that completes my number quota for Jan/Feb? Even if not, I have 3 figures that I have to finish by mid-February and then the bonus challenges will push me further beyond quota completion.

 

I'm especially looking forward to having some fun with fingerpainting...I already know which figure I'm going to do.

I'm intrigued by the notion of the microbust.  

 

I've selected a candidate, but I've never really made such severe modifications to a model before.  Unfortunately it's metal, so won't have the luxury of being able to cleanly cut away bonesium.  Now, I've snipped off a broccoli base, filed down parts, and shaved off flash, but I've never tried to cut through the main mass of a models body.  What tool do you use to cut through without distorting the model too much?

Jewelers saw would do it. Perhaps a very fine blade on a hacksaw?

I was just re-reading the bonus challenges; by classic horror creature, you mean vampire, mummy, Frankenstein's monster, stuff like that, right?

Or do slasher movie villains, aliens, and stuff like that count as well?

      Painted mainly just by drybrushing. The sculpt screamed grizzly bear, so I tried to emulate those colors.


       
      I think this is my quickest figure yet, and one of my favorites. Any advice and critiques are appreciated!
    • By Fire_Eyes
      My first figure of the year, and also my first speedpaint (AKA I tried not to get perfectionist over every detail)
       

       
      I followed the kit's instructions on the cloak, then did my own thing on the rest, which accidentally wound up being pretty similar to most of the other ltpk Anirions I've seen.
       

       
      This wasn't my favorite sculpt, and the mold lines were terrible, especially on her hand, but I was able to practice and learn a lot by painting her. Any critiques and advice for future figures are welcome and appreciated!

      So, since the RPChallenge Requests a Show-Off, here's my first point for this year! I'm really proud of her!
      I'm not sure which of the starting survivors she is, but...

       
      Better Pictures (edit):

       
      Critique would be appreciated. I will admit, I used too light a skin color for the OSL to look right over, and it is toned down enough that you can't really tell in person. I wanted to give the lantern a soft glow, rather than a bright one, to capture the hopelessness that is Kingdom Death.

      Hi all,
       
      In case you couldn't tell, I am trying to upgrade my current painting gear to something that gives me more capability to expand my skill base.  One thing I have recently considered is magnification.
       
      I have heard some folks use reading glasses, and a few that use desk mounted magnifiers.  For those that use them, what makes them worth it? (FWIW, my eyesight is 20/20, I am just trying to get closer without putting the mini right into my face).

      I'm kinda on time!

      All the information you need should be here.

      Due to the revised format, there will be more than one bonus challenge available for this month. Including a "Hard mode" which Is some combination that may or may not have a source behind it.

      Your challenge is: 8!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      Frostbite:
      Considering the sheer cold that's gripping most of us as of this posting: Paint a mini that looks like they've been outside in the winter a little too long - snow in the hair, icicles on shields, etc. Have fun with it

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      Our annual challenge returns. February Fingerpaint! 
      This is pretty self explanatory. 


      Hard Mode Challenge!
      Pending...


      Good luck

      The game is made up and the points don't matter
