Wow!! really? Did you also paint its eyes with that brush? 

 

Still, the result is incredible! Give us moar?

Lol no, the eyes, teeth, tongue and claws were all done with a Size 0, though I probably could have managed the claws and tongue with the big brush. 

 

Since MrBoot is starting up a new Pathfinder campaign, I expect that I will be painting more minis in a similar fashion in the future. :) 

 

Huzzah!

That is awesome! The only Wappel-related note I could give is that you opened too many bottles of paint! ::P:

 

Seriously though, at Rcon 2016 I saw him paint two stands of FoW* infantry to roughly period-accurate colors using only a red, yellow, blue, black and white...in 30 minutes...while actively and animatedly carrying a completely unrelated conversation. The man is some kind of warlock.

 

Really lovely work, though. I havent been able to apply the stuff from his classes nearly as well, yet. You got excellent results in very good time!

 

 

* I think it was Flames of War...I don't play historicals, so I can't be certain.

That's great! I can't believe you got it to look so nice in an hour! I am super slow and would have it basecoated and starting on the face in about an hour. ::D: I think he looks really good!

I must admit to enjoying the sloppier parts of painting..one reason I like terrain so much. However you did the Wolf Man, he looks WONDERFUL. He looks like you spent quite a bit more time than you did. VERY WELL DONE!

Needs more purple! :poke:

Seriously though, that looks great, it definitely looks like you spent way more time on it than you did. And you had fun, which is the most important part! ^_^

:lol: You are completely correct! I don't know that I'll ever be able to completely move away from using the premixed colors I already have (because there's just too many pretty ones!), but I am going to be trying to do more mixing colors on my pallette and brush like he does, which will help me achieve smoother blends much more quickly. :) 

 

And yes, he totally is some sort of wizardly mad genius; watching him at work is a real treat!

Thank you so much! I'm normally a slow painter as well, which has frustrated me numerous times in the past. So, this ReaperCon I specifically took a couple of classes with the goal of improving my speed: Good Fast Painting by Tish Wolter, and Shaded Basecoats by Wappel. They helped so much!

That's fantastic!

I hope I can get into his class next year.

 

If you can, you should! It's a mind-breaking experience, but so awesome! :D

Thank you! I've generally been a very tidy painter, but that costs me quite a bit in speed. So I'm sort of learning backwards, because I'm trying to be messier! :lol:

Totally agree, it does need more purple! But MrBoot likes realism, so I had to settle for subtle purple undertone (which the camera entirely failed to pick up). We do have another one, though, so I might do it up in very dark purples as a sort of monochrome thing, or possibly blue. Just for fun. ^_^

 

Huzzah!

      I saw a tweet in Japanese which says soaking Bones in benzine for about 2 days (more precisely, 44 hours, he says) removed plasticizer and bones are hardened. Did somebody tried this before? Any successful experience? Or experienced some problem?

      Beard did not come out very good on Camera.  Otherwise I think he turned out pretty good.

      Not sure of the name on this one but he turned out pretty good.  I did the eyes on this one but because of the hood the camera I was using could pick it up and the flash washed everything out.

      I really like how this one turned out.  I wasn't too stoked on it at first but he really grew on me once I got some paint on him.

      Wish I had the metal version of this one I think.  When you look at all the detail that was lost in the bones model...ugh he is a smooshie duckling.  Good enough for an NPC though.  
       
      Also sorry about the camera picks being a bit out of focus.  Did them with my phone and I see now that the manual settings I was using were a little off.  I was using autofocus but I don't think the camera in my motorola is any better than the camera on my old Samsung Note 3.  In some ways I think its inferior.
