  1. i used to paint with the classic "lines on the edge" nid scheme.... but then i've seen something similar made for some.....reptilians... i've tried on my nids adjusted it and fell in love with it!


    it's easier faster and i think it looks cool! (to me at least!^^)


    for the blue scheme:


    basecoat the whole carapace with black (with a few regal blue drops in it)


    then with a medium drybrush with the paint wet tap the surface in regal blue


    the subsequent steps are made with enchanted blue and ice blue and only on the largest scales a subltle final step with white these steps must be done with the paint dry (you have to matte varnish at the end to avoid it fall^^)

    it's super easy! the only con is that tends to ruin brushes A LOT!


    technically is called stippling but to achieve a good effect the final layers should be applied with the paint dry

  2. mmmmh

    don't hate me pls, i think it's overall a good pice love the snow but....


    the osl is WRONG!


    not badly executed, just wrong.


    The flames colours go white>yellow>red>dark red  as the heat goes down

    on the ground you've painted an osl wich goes from orange to yellow, this is unnatural.

    It seems that  the snow is hotter than the flames.



    hope it helps

  3. What hits me here isn't the glazing technique per se, but the amazing taste you show for mixing colours!


    you took the wheel of colours, breaked any rules for contrasting colors, and made it work!


    there are all the basic colours mixed in there and none seems out of place!


    Really nice!

  4. mmmh i'm trying to figure out what doesn't convince me....


    i guess the rivets!


    white on the shield is really well done


    i think you should place a bit of your azure wash around the rivets and overall more in the crevices of the armour.



    as i said the shield is reaaally good it's perceived as white but has depth

  5. at my first attempts with OSL i've found that subtle drybrushing is nice.

    Then you can go on with really thinned paint.


    I think the VERY trick about osl is that you should seethat there was another color beneath that changes tone as closer as it gets to the source
