  1. Gerat work, Samedi! I'm glad you found the lessons useful.
  2. My first time painting a chibi figure. Probably not the last. Painting this made me feel happy.
  3. A Hellcat Hacker for my Corregidor Nomads team for Infinity.
  4. A tip that I've found helps me a lot with sheer fabrics -- paint all the skin tones on the mini first as though the cloth isn't there at all. Then go back and paint fabric. Example below behind spoiler tag due to NSFW. Compare dress of figure on left to stockings of figure on far right. Center figure has no sheer fabric. My experience has been that the stronger your highlighting and shading is, with clearly defined light direction, the better the effect looks. Reel sheer cloth works when light goes through and is reflected by the skin underneath. If there is no light hitting the surface,
  5. OMG that's so gross! I hope you left one eye unpainted!
  6. I think the NMM looks great. Especially with all the rust!
  7. I'm working on this figure, too I love what you've done with the base. It looks great!
  8. You don't necessarily have to put the blue glow on the halfling's clothing to give the impression of a glow. If you increase the saturation of the blue a lot and brighten up the white center it will convey that illusion, because the colour is so intense compared to the rest of the figure . I recommend using Reaper's Surf Aqua. Paint a ring with that colour between the white that you already have and the first blue ring. Then paint it again a couple of times to increase the blue intensity. Then reapply the white node in the centre of the light several times to make it super bright . It wil
  9. Wow! Thank you very much, that's quite the compliment. I love that guy, very cool!
  10. Thanks for noticing it, Derek! Yes, my intention was to try to put reflections of her environment and armour into the NMM and OSL. Geoff
  11. I know I haven't posted in a while, but I still check in daily on the friendliest mini-painting forum on the web! Still lurking here while pursuing my obsession with OSL.
  12. I like using Reaper's Walnut Brown, Nightshade Purple or Dragon Black for blacklining. I sometimes use Black Indigo as well if I don't want the darklining to be super dark. I also find that Burgundy WIne works really well for "blacklining" around many different flesh tones. I find that using Reaper's Wash Medium for making small amounts of wash works really well. Only takes a couple of drops.
  13. Congrats on the new airbrush! You won't regret it, its a real time saver.
  14. It might help to reverse the colours on your torch. You have dark orange in the recesses, and yellow on the outer parts of the flame. Subconsciously, our brains know that real flame goes the other way: light in the center, and getting darker as you go away/upwards from the source of the heat/light. In particular, the colours "cool" as you go upwards from the flame. It can make your illusion of light look better to go through a sequence from bright white in the center of the torch to bright yellow, then orange then red-orange, then red and then finally purple or blue at the very upper end
  15. I use Reaper's Black Indigo for this kind of hair. I basecoat with the black indigo. I then add tiny amounts of a strong white like Vallejo Ivory to the indigo and make progressively brighter highlights. at the end, I give the whole thing a wash with the same black indigo to tie it all together. At that moment, you can glaze with a different colour, like Reaper Imperial Purple, to change the tint of the hair colour to be more purple than indigo.
