Skeletal Archer - 77108

Recommended Posts

First completed mini of 2018. ::P: 

 

I decided to go back to the basics and start with the LTPK Kit 1. What do you think?

Only 10 more (in my inventory) of this particular figure left to paint, and another 29 20 skeletons in addition on my to paint shelves. :down:

 

Once the skeletons are done, then moving on to the Orcs.

I've been a little lax in my painting but here is #2/11.

I kinda got sidetracked by some Gargoyles & brain-weasels.

Time to get back to painting skeletons.

      I've had these pics on my camera for a few days, and keep forgetting to upload them...  Keep getting distracted by other projects, but nothing wrong with that I say...  ^_^;;;;;  These photos were taken using my previous way of doing things, and I definitely prefer the "newer" way even if it means a bit more work up front, but there's less editing, and my kit lens is a LOT easier to work with for such up close pictures.  Kind of can't wait to get that Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro that's on my wishlist, but right now it's a debate between miniature supplies and camera gear, and the camera gear isn't currently on sale, plus we really could use a wider selection of paints in the house, so..... 
       
      Ingrid was definitely an....  Interesting challenge to paint, to say the least.  She has a great deal of smaller details to her, aaaaaand she's pint shot glass sized, which adds to things.  Interestingly enough, the biggest issue I kept running into was with her gloves, boots, and especially belt.  Cloak also gave some issues, even having me somewhat frustrated at first that my initial shadow layer looked a LOT like vertical red and black stripes, I kept it as it was, and added additional layers on, which seems to have partially corrected itself, but looking at the photos, at the right angles it... Still kind of shows that way.  Oh well, we learn as we go, right?
       
      This was also the first mini that I attempted something resembling eyes, and I did my best to have it look like she was looking right at the gem itself.  It took a few tries, but I managed to get some sort of hazel-brown eye going, although with just the one colour hazel eyes have (not the brown-green mix).

      Been working steadily on Anirion from the Layer up! LTPK over the past few days, and I can say with certainty I like how the two learn to paint kits approach things very differently.  I'm also rather liking how things come out with layering techniques...
       
      Can't think of much else to add here for text other than I really REALLY need to get a proper lighting setup going to take pictures with >.>;;;;;;

      Couldn't resist the silly-ish title - it was originally going to be "Novice Painter, versus LTPK:Core!" but I changed it a touch at the end..  Bonus points if you read that as the Innkeeper from Hearthstone. :P 
       
      While I have painted miniatures in the past, I've first and foremost never shown such results to anyone, and secondly went in blindly with those ones, and while I was happy with them at the time, I wanted to improve.  Other things in life took over for a while, and then finally I said that's it, I'm either going to FINALLY paint my primered army of doom that was at Doom In June 2005 or I'm going to sell the minis I've had sitting in boxes for over a decade.  So glad I found out about the Learn to Paint Kits, because that pretty much solidified that decision right then and there :P
       
      Anyways!  At some point we were all at this stage, and while looking over the pictures I can see a number of things I can improve on (*cough* like my up close photography skills *cough*), but for most things...  I'm happy with them.  Especially the chain mail on the Orc Marauder.  I just might have to retake some of these photos, because I realize looking at them that, uhm, first and foremost f1.7 blurs half the model, and secondly, I didn't get a shot of the backside of the Marauder's Shield, which I was also happy about.  Oops.
       
      But before I ramble on for three pages......!
       

       

       

       
       
      Drybrushing feels sooooo weird, but it was starting to click once I got to Magnu, even if I wound up overdoing it in a few areas and it so wasn't a dry effect anymore.  But that's life, we learn from our actions!

      So, I'm doing the Layer Up learn to paint kit from reaper. Hopefully, I'm not missing any of the basics from core skills (I did the AP learn to paint process).
       
      So, all washed and boiled...

      Hello everyone!
       
      The last entry from my Learn To Paint Kit: Layer Up!  I am very pleased with this mini.  It's not perfect, and there are some parts which didn't come out like I had hoped, but I learned a lot and I think some parts came out very well. I tried to focus a lot of attention on the little details.  I would really like to hear what you all think, I am trying to improve with each mini.  The parts of this mini which I think I struggled with the most were the True Metallic Metals. I don't like them. I really want to try to learn how to do NMM, as I think those look so much nicer. Thank you for your advice!
