    Nocturna

    This past weekend I made the journey out to the lovely Pacific Northwest to take some private lessons at Contrast Miniatures. It was a combination of educational and entertaining, learning some solid art theory with an emphasis on pushing value contrast significantly higher. I have tried to spend the past few days jotting down all of the little knowledge bits onto paper. I don't have an art background, and have come into it a bit later in life. It was really interesting to see different some different approaches and methods of painting and composition. Well, without further ado, here she is... She was VERY tiny, probably the smallest 28mm figure I have painted with really delicate details - but her sculpt was pretty clean for the most part with only minimal cleanup required. Some of the blending is a little rougher than I am capable of, but to be fair, I didn't spend a ton of time in glazes like I typically do. This was learning new brush work and blending, so the results to time ratio is certainly a LOT faster (as my WIP threads can attest) than my usual pace, and the contrast holds up at a distance. I could always spend more time refining as necessary, but all-in-all I think she turned out really well and there are some new steps that I plan on incorporating into my usual workflow to both boost my contrast values and expedite my results.
