Citrine paints Ashoka, Crocodile Man from Hell Dorado
Citrine posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingThis is Cipher Studios SKU 3016, Ashoka from their Hell Dorado line. I had trouble finishing this one, it lingered on the paint desk half done for months. I had wanted to do NMM on it, but like normal I chickened out and went with shaded metallics. The mini also has quite a lean, but I didnt want to break it off its base to fix it.
Anima Tactics Lorenzo Cortez
fanguad posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingWIP Thread Overall, he was a fairly quick paint job - maybe 4-6 hours total. I tried to really push the contrast on him. I'd be interested in hearing feedback on how well I did. The Matte Varnish Iâ€™m using does weird things â€“ itâ€™s super-matte, but it looks a little bit grainy. And then, of course, thereâ€™s this picture which look AWFUL. Thank goodness it doesnâ€™t look like that in hand. I will need to experiment a bit to see if I canâ€™t figure out how to get the super-matte properties without the grainy properties.
Do NOT challenge this man to an arm wrestle...
fanguad posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingMy favorite part of painting is putting the first few colors on a miniatures, which is problematic since that encourages starting lots of things that never get completed. I gave into my baser impulses yesterday and started work on this guy, who has been waiting patiently in my drawer of shame, primed and ready to go. Lorenzo Cortez, from Anima Tactics. He came in a box set with another figure I wanted that I couldn't find sold separately (one of those ones that I want to wait to paint until I'm good enough to do her justice). Check out this arm. I don't know what the story is behind this guy, but I bet he has never lost an arm wrestling challenge since he got that thing attached. MSP Soft Blue for his suit, VMC Ochre Brown for the collar-thingy, MSP Dark Skin, and MSP Clockwork Brass (washed with P3 Armor Wash, then highlighted with Clockwork Brass with some VMC Metallic Medium). MSP Pure Black for the shoes and undercoat on the arm. MSP Blue and Brown Liner as lining. I'm going to try not to spend too much time on this guy. These pictures do a good job showing off the shadows thrown by the lights (I haven't done any detailing except on the arm), and they look pretty straight-forward. Not too many fiddly-bits left now that I've decided to take the easy road with his arm.
