layering Dae's Anirion, Wood Elf Wizard (77068)
Dae posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI recently finished Anirion! It was time to add layering to my toolbox of techniques and he seems to be the go-to model for learning. Since by I now have (just) over 10 minis under my belt, I'm obviously an expert so I felt confident enough to go with my own colors rather than the ones in the instructions (from Layer-Up kit). Still, even with my "vast experience", I've only painted beasts and monsters so far -- no fancy clothing on any of them -- so I was a bit nervous about messing up my first hero, but you gotta start somewhere. I think he turned out great, but it went nothing like the videos one might find... And by that I mean it took me several painting sessions over a few weeks to finish him. More on how it went on: pocketsizedadventurers.wordpress.com/2019/10/19/anirions-wavy-robes/ * * First post, woo-hoo! Still finding my way around here. Rules seem to allow non-commercial external links, let me know if I'm wrong... Our blog, Pocket-Sized Adventurers, features the works of two newbies and is meant to keep track of our progress and share our experience with whomever might find it helpful.

knarthex posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingFinished up the Vourgha the Ogre late last night, and based him this afternoon. So here he is! Pic's Some close ups of his face: This was the 1st time I tried '5 O'Clock shadow' on a figure, and I thought it came out well... At least 1 of the close ups seems to be in focus Comments Welcome! 8) George Of to Irrisen in Golarion now for a few hours...
A study in layering and magecraft
VolksFest posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingHello again, Today I present you my mages from the boardgame Wiz-War, from Fantasy Flight Games: With them I took the opportunity to work further on my layering technique. On the green mage I accidentally (and out of patience tbh) started doing a wet blending technique. I turned out ok I guess.. Then I failed with it on the yellow guy so I had to start all over and got back to layering. All in all, I still have a lot to work on but I believe I got the gist of the matter.. the rest is moar and moar practice.. Thanks for looking and comments and advice is always very welcome..
Vourgha the Ogre 02312
knarthex posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingHey all! Been working on and off on this guy, he won't make the August cut, but... I recently got new brushes, and am learning to wet blend and layer so he is a transition figure... The furs, hair and boots were worked on in my old paint, wash, high light style, now I guess that will end up forming the base coat for my new learning works in wet blending, layering, use of a wet palette and all these other new tips and tricks... His skin is GW Tanned flesh, Layered up with GW Dwarf Flesh. His eyes were done with the 'Bette Davis' eyes tutorial from 'The Craft' section. Just a couple pics for comments: Thanks! 8) George
Marble Effect Base
Corporea posted a topic in Conversions, Presentation, and TerrainNot sure this is in the right spot on the forum, but it'll work. I plan to go through step-by-step a marble effect, so this may be picture-heavy. I'll also include some alternative patterns after the step-by-step, so if anyone has a color request or marble style request let me know! I'm not attached to any particular marble. Except maybe the pretty ones. I found these marble tutorial resources helpful: Chest of Colors Massive Voodoo Oz Painters First I made a marble base out of sculpey: Once it was baked, I primed it using a combination of gray and white. Gray for the recesses/grout areas, and white for the marble surface. I used a fairly dry brush with the white primer to just cover the surface of the tiny edging tiles. Hmmn... now it looks like a little window icon. Sigh. Ignore the cartoony base. It will be painted! Right now I'm tentatively leaning towards this marble pattern, but this is as far as I got, so request alternatives if you want! I got it by searching google images for white marble. Link: http://www.cepolina.com/stone-marble-white.html I like it because it will let us play with creams, reds and some freehand lines. More later!
