  1. Ok, I think that definitely helped me to see it, but as it is there are metalic surfaces showing up brighter than might be expected for it's distance from the light source. Should these be dialed down or left the way they are due to metal being reflective? You guys are great by the way!!!!
  2. Ok, so I took some more pictures over lunch. I tried doing some of the suggestions, but I'm not sure if I took a step forward or not. Part of the difference is I did use a darker backdrop, and I also took the pictures at home during lunch where I have a much better photobox than I do here at work, or at least better lighting. I tried brightening up the amount of pure white from the lamp. using brighter gold on the bronze pieces closest to the light source. using washes of yellow, red, and purple as the light gets further from the source, and using some white lining on some of the metal edges near the light source. I also hit the shadows and areas away from the source with several more glazes of dark blue black, and hit the deepest shadows with a mixture of black/nightmareblack. What do you think?
  3. Cool, Thanks again. I really appreciate all the help guys! I'll try to get some pics up as I try to make use of some of these suggestions.
  4. Wow, great post, thanks, Lots of good tips there I can work with.
  5. Hello again, for anyone following them, I haven't forgotten about the berserk bust or Cthulhu, but they are on hold at the moment. Currently, I am working on a kingdom death Kingsman figure. with my kingdom death pieces I want to really play up the darkness of the world and try to improve my grasp of OSL. I have taken what I know about doing osl painting (darkish fiigure, muted colors, light diffusing as it travels farther from the source) but am still not getting the results I would like. So, I ask for any critiques and suggestions on how I can improve my OSL look. I wanted a yellowish light emanating from the lamp on his halbred. I went with true metalic metal as I cant imagine trying to learn OSL and NMM on a single figure, too mind blowing. Thanks in advance for any help!
  6. Ok, it has been a while but I finally got back to painting some today! working on the shield, going for a TMM approach to the metal bits, will still take that further but wanted to get a pic up today since it has been a while. Also did a lot with the wood and weathering. Thanks for looking! Comments and critiques are always welcome.
  7. Thanks, I will try to get him posted in the group challenge. I have to prepare a little for a fantasy football draft this weekend, so I don't know if I will get any more painting done until next week.
  8. So I decided to take a little break from Cthulhu for a while. Started working on a new bust this morning. I find one of the ways I push myself to improve is by trying to recreate other peoples amazing paint jobs. Arbal's Berserk Bust is my primary inspiration for this paint job, but sometimes I will take bits and pieces of other's work as well. Sometimes I start and then inspiration will hit and I will take off in my own direction, but doing things this way forces me to do and try techniques that I might not have done before. If trying to emulate others is looked down upon though, let me know. I started by blocking in some of the basic colors, and then adding in some shading and tinting. And thats what I accomplished before lunch. *edited to rotate pictures
  9. Loth, I feel your pain man, with a 7, 5, and 2 year old at home, most of my painting is done during down time at work right now. :(
  10. he is a difficult guy to photograph due to his size
  11. more slow progress, highlighting and shading, shading and highlighting. also did a little work on the stone idol.
  12. Some progress made yesterday. Hope to have another good painting day today!
  13. Thanks Rahz, I am enjoying seeing yours as well, though I just found it this morning.
  14. One step forward, two steps back... So I was working on the wings and was really liking the progress. At first my plan for the big guy was just kind high tabletop standard. but I was getting so much done today and having a good time doing it so I decided I might end up pushing it as far as I can and try to make a display piece eventually. However, I didn't put a ton of time into prepping him, and therefore there were several pretty bad mold lines left from prep. So I decided to go ahead and clean those up. so here is a little work on the wings, and several steps back removing the mold lines. Edit - crap forgot to rotate the pics, fixed now
