  1. I’m officially an Old Man today. This year marks my 50th (!). 😅
  2. I purchased a new camera, and have begun making tutorials again. Link for this guy on video: https://youtu.be/snWd9JsvWrs
  3. First up is the Barrow Warden Mystic by Reaper, 03428. The rest are more figures for Myth, and another for Village Attacks. This is the very last commission I will ever take, and from now it’s just my own stuff, baby!
  4. I’ve been taking notes and watching a lot of videos from Big Child Creatives and Angel Giraldez. I’m trying to push my contrast higher and have a greater variation of lights and darks. Priming black for the most part has helped, as has the old traditional zenithal priming. All these were taken on my painting desk with a cardboard light box and my painting lamps, on an iPhone XR. Photoshop Express and Lightroom are invaluable apps for getting your photos to look sharp. Heres a video on the subject - https://youtu.be/_LqJCbZfl3o And thanks!
  5. Only on the top photo there of all the tokens together. The rest were traditionally painted and usually take me around 5-10 hours each.
  6. You crushed your enemies. They we’re driven before you. And you heard the lamentations of the women.
  7. Thanks! It was all speed painting done with Contrast, some highlights, and some dry brushing. I think that whole lot only took about an hour per model.
  8. Not much to say except that I still paint. Until my arthritis stops me, I’ll continue to do so! I have more I still need to photograph which I will post another day. Cheers painters!
  9. I’m not sure what this guy is called. Its from the Myth Board game expansion, Isle of Kanis, and is a mini boss. And the forum keeps merging my posts. Guess I’ll enter more later….
  10. Another one for my Paint Club, and the second to last for the year. Dark and Brooding was asked for here, with everything being built over a black base. Black was used as the deepest shade for everything here, as I'm practicing 'Comic Style'. I'll be making a video on the subject once I'm a bit better with it.
  11. Another quick one for my huge Myth commission. I think this was about 6ish hours maybe? The Myth figures are all right, if a little (maybe a lot) rough around the edges. It’s hard to get them to look as good as most of my other stuff as a result. The bigger models are much rougher in the finish than the man sized models. Which is kind of weird. Anyways.... This model will feature in a future video on the Mixing and Theory of Red.
  12. Whats funny is that as I get older...uh....more experienced, I’ve been finding more shortcuts for everything. It used to take me weeks to paint to this level, until I came to the conclusion that I’d never get enough done before I die. Now a single model like this takes about 5 hours. It’s really just well placed dots, lines and blobs of highlight and shade. If one looks closely it’s painterly without many smooth transitions. I’ve been taking notes from Big Child Creatives.
  13. A quick job for myself of a few hours time. Since most of my painting time is commissions of late, a quick break for myself was needed. Just two figures to go and the base box and about half of the KS extras are done. With the sequel on the way, I need to hustle my way through the rest of my pledge.
  14. The grey has a bit of blue in there. I'd say it's the colour juxtaposition that's making it look green. I was pushing the contrast with cool and warm for the most part. Just trying some stuff I see painters much better than I, using.
  15. Not much to say here, except I'm not usually one to use analagous colour schemes. But, you have to push yourself to explore new territory if one wants to grow. And this is exactly that. One more down for my Patrons.
  16. After painting this one I'm very tempted to get the 75mm one. It's a beautiful model and was a joy to paint.
  17. One for myself as I needed subject matter for a video on Distressed Leather. Since Zemo had both leather pants and jacket, he was a natural choice.
  18. Three words were used to describe what my Patron wanted for this scheme - poison dart frog.
  19. The video on painting the skin for those interested.
  20. This one took a bit longer than I had planned. She had some big gaps, and more than a few air bubbles. Some of the detail was extremely sharp, so much so, that getting paint to sit on it and look proper took some amount of effort. It's a commission for my Paint Club, and the Apprentice for a Frostgrave Warband. I painted his Wizard a couple years ago from the same line of models. Pretty happy with how it turned out.
  21. When did I get old? Thanks everyone!
