Resolutionary Painting Challenge 2018 Chatter/Questions

Recommended Posts

I'm in!

 

Also, I hate the word bimonthly. I never know if it's every two months or twice a month. >< silly English language.

 

I totally spaced out on the RPChallenge last year I think =/

Sooo if I post this guy on the Jan/Feb thread he would count as 1?  But if I added basing enhancements he would be 2?

Challenge Accepted!

 

I got burned out and didn’t paint anything at all for most of last year. But I’m refreshed now and ready to go.

I'm ordering a bunch of supplies and minis tomorrow, might as well join in, doubly so given my GW backlog from days gone by.  And hey, fun and friendly challenges are always a good motivator ^_^

 

I have a question regarding the fingerpainting challenge...  Is one able to use things like paper towel / shop towels / rags creatively, assuming they're wrapped around your finger(s) at the time?  By such I'm not referring to using them as a replacement brush, more as something for removal/smearing of paint.  As an example, think of the "old" ragging technique for getting "texture" when painting a wall in one's room.

vignette/dioramas are factored differently - on this particular one that would be more under 'single mini basing'

(I just love that picture...) but really, fingerpainting is using only your fingers to apply paint. There's some past examples that people did some REALLY nice stuff that way, actually considering the limitations. It's meant to be a fun challenge, hypothetically if you wanted to file your fingernail down to a paint for detail work you can, but the spirit of the challenge is strictly your digits.

I am in again, but as usual I probably won't do any challenges.

I'm in. Last year I didn't get a lot done, but whenever I remembered about the challenge it always made me do at least something.

 

The weather isn't nice enough to prime the ones I really want to paint right now, but I have quite a few random minis I am going to try and get done this month.

I have a question on size. I just finished the Stoneskull Dire Bear, and I'm working now on 77029 Silverhorn Unicorn, and noticed that both are larger than my character minis, but smaller than a giant. Would they qualify as medium or large?

 

Pic for size reference:

FWIW, when I base & catalog my mini's, I generally use the Pathfinder Bestiary which has the Giant, Dire Bear, & Unicorn as large creatures, so that's how I would initially submit them.

 

Ultimately its up to the discretion of of the moderator of this challenge.

But... I don't know if I want to sacrifice a figure to the fingers! Maybe a skeleton? For shizngiggles? 

Frosty... I got some ideas on that...

I'm tempted to "sacrifice" Rictus to such an endeavour...  I'll have four of him soon enough anyways, assuming hubby doesn't want one.....  Although I will admit, that's kind of why I ordered 77254 Beastman Champion, as well as 77473 Kogo, Male Kitsune...  Well, that and was curious about the sculpts and how they are in Bones, but still.  Well, Kogo is geniunely interesting to me, but the Beastman...  Hard to say.  Seemed like just outside the bounds of what I'd normally get, and seemed like it could potentially be friendly to fingerpainting ^_^

      Well,
       
      After a long time of having only posted WIPs and being not able to finish something, here is another Show Off.
       
      Actually she is already a bit older, but - a finished miniature is a finished miniatures ...
       
      I painted her as some kind of a test using some new washes and trying some techniques. Came out pretty decent, I think.
       
      The only mistake I made back then was to give her a coat of mat laquer in the end. That did some frosting (a problem that ruined the arcane spellmaster later on), but opposite to the other figures I lost using laquer, I somehow managed to save most of her. Well, one of her eyes is a bit blind and on some detail shots you can see the leftovers of the frosting.
       
      But nevertheless - I managed to try out some techniques regarding the skin and the clothes and it somehow makes me proud.
       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      P.S.: Yes - yes - the frosting on the base is intentional. A friend suggested that I should try a late autumn base with first pieces of snow and ice - like in "The house of flying daggers".

      Here's my take on this cute little guy. I tried to do more glazes on him than the way I normally paint, and his eyes are violet, which I think came out ok. Wishing I'd been able to get the huge mold line off his head but oh well. He's still adorbs.

      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!
    • By Paradoxical Mouse
      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.
