Mostly Harmless

Mostly Harmless (2/8)



  1. I suggest you start at Honed Steel add-in a dropof very light grey to kill the blue tinge it has. Highlight up by mixing very small amounts of silver and greet as desired. For rust effect, I start with Muddy Brownand lightly drybrush a few spots randomly at the edges of metal. Then I add a bit of drybrushed Phoenix red for the orange of rust.
  2. Heyguys, been a long time since I last posted. I recently decided I want to build a diorama involvingminiatures and at last one muscle car model. I'm not certain of what scale model car I should beleaving toward. I want one of my characters to conceivably be able to drive said car.
  3. Wow...just...Wow! great sculpt and paint sir!
  4. Great Owlbear! I agree the claws could use more work, they seem to be on the flat side. Since they are a smooth hard material, you could try highlighting up to white.
  5. Very good work! Nice blend on the skin tones!
  6. Thanks a lot Silas, I find she looks even better in hand, not quite so flat on the muscle tones
  7. Thanks Silas, they were fun and a pain all at the same time haha!
  8. Thanks everyone! Nameless, I agree with you totally. The mini I'm currently working on should fill the bill.
  9. very cool! I love the subtle effect you give with the OSL
  10. Very cool and would be terrifying fun to face in game! I think you've made this look very believable with that custom basework.
  11. Very cool mod! I have a buddy who loves mech's that I'll have to show this to. Also you have a great looking camo effect on your older models.
  12. That green really helps make your elemental unique. I had looked at this model previously and found myself thinking "How the hell do you paint that and not make it look like Mystique???" To wit I will say that you have presented a perfect method!
  13. Thanks for the tips on eyes everyone! That method that Adrift and Kuro use sounds fairly simple, yet effective. I'll definitely give it a go on the next mini I paint. I've noticed DKS's eyes, amazing! I think I even saw one of his minis where he had taken off the bottom eyelid to make the eye bigger! That blew me away.
  14. I was very pleased with how my first attempt at OSL came out. It's not spectacular but far better than I thought I could do. Thank you all. Adrift you can definitely steal the idea! I agree with using the pebbles and some twigs though. This wasn't hard either I just made a ball of green stuff and stuck it to a penny and started twisting it, then once you have the basic shape down you want to ad a few little twists which you can pull away from the green stuff you twisted for the main fire. The little twists can go in almost any direction you want, but should sort of follow the direction you twisted the fire. And the next key that I picked up from the tutorial I read is that fire starts white and goes up through yellow to red-orange. The white spots you see at the top of the flames in a real fire come from the combustible material (wood bits) being sucked up by the heat and burning once they reach an appropriate air-heat spot. Hope that bit of info helps!
  15. I had the idea for this when our DM in one of our Pathfinder games had to draw campfires onto her map. She's a great artist and they looked really cool, but since jumping over a campfire can actually be a risk for a character (hence the usual requirement of a jump check to make it) I decided to give sculpting a shot and make my own from Green Stuff. The actual sculpting only took about an hour total and after reading a tutorial from Hot Lead on how to paint fire realistically (not sure what the link is or was anymore, sorry) I gave that a shot. The paintjob only took an hour also and was done with a lot of wet blending technique learned on the fly. The mini has a yellow wash that doesn't look entirely right in the pics due to my selection of paints only being hobby paints so far (Folkart, Plaid and Apple Barrel brands which I have used thusfar on all my minis.) The fire also has some orange and yellow highlights that make the overall piece look better in hand than in pics. Sorry but my photo-fu is not so strong, yet. All told the mini is about 2hrs worth of actual work. C&C welcome! Also sorry for the massive pics once again. Any advice you guys have on reducing their size for future posts would be great!!
