For those that were following along with me in WIP as I painted and based this Mini, Thank You. I had forgotten how much fun it is to explain what it is, and why you are doing something. I set a goal to base the mini on a bark base (which is a LOT of fun to do). I was also doing a lot of experimenting. The Crystal, and using my color wheel to get Contrast, and also to use Triads, for colors. The challenge has been a delight for me. Hope you got an idea how I approach a mini when I am painting it, and basing it. Thank you for your comments and suggestions as I went along. Your C/C are always welcome and sought after ! Leave me a comment please. Here is the completed Guinea Pig Wizard. Here is the link to the Work In Progress Thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68089-guinea-pig-wizard-dsm7976/ Jay
I've decided to do another WIP after not doing so for quite some time. My son gave me this mini and my friends want to see it painted, and based. I have gotten into basing thanks to many on the Forums, and so that is part of what I am up to. I'm planning on using bark in the basing on this right off the git go. Secondly, I started clipping off the broccoli base that DSM come with. I've had to modify some of my methods, and a bit of how I do things. I still mix my own colors, I use brush on primer (gray), and now I take my time, and really water down the colors. I just get richer and better results (in my opinion). I was given a marvelous gift that I am going to share right from the beginning. It is a plastic vise, with a suction cup bottom. Now that I pin the base I need something to hold it. For me this is perfect. I can hold in my hand, I can suction cup it to the desk and file, and or prime, and line if I desire. It makes me remember to remove that broccoli. So here is what I am working on now. Firsts photo is of the critter on the vise, then raw, then primed with brown liner. I love this thing already ! Jay
