    Vourgha the Ogre 02312

    Finished 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

    Hello 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

    Hey 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
  4. I'm painting this Elf Thief up and I am having problems with getting this cloak to work. Let me show you what I've done and then explain my problem. I like the idea of what I'm trying to do here, but the execution is poor. This billowing cloak is like a canvas and I want to do more than just paint it and highlight it. From three feet away, this looks pretty cool, but close up, it's rubbish. What I want is this purple with what looks like blue flames coming up the back. I tried to wet blend, but it was rubbish. Would this work if I went in and made my free hand very fine and tidy? Would it work if I outlined the light outer blue in black? In a nutshell, does anyone have suggestions for how to make this work?

    Wet Blending a Cloak

    Here is part one of video on painting a cloak. It covers wet blending. Part two will cover creating and applying an oil wash. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOVYaJFETT0
  6. Hi, folks. I'm a still-fairly-novice painter that's trying to home my skills for painting really nice miniatures. I don't have an army I'm trying to field, or a game I need new characters for, I just like painting things so that they look really nice. It takes a while, but the relaxation and slow pace is why I like it. So my 'book learning' on the subject of blending colors comes from two places. Lazlo Jakusovszky's 'Hot Lead' DVDs and the "Complete Guide to miniature painting" put out by Miniature Mentor. Hot lead tends to lean more toward wet blending, the the Complete Guide more towards glazes. I wanted to know people's experience with these sorts of techniques. Is one considered better for competitions? Easier to learn or faster to do? What situations do you like using one or the other for? I've had some problems and some successes with both of them so far. Wet blending works pretty much like it says on the box, except that I'm still a little inexperienced at getting my paints thinned to a proper level, and so I often end up with too much fluid on the mini such that it just runs all around. I'm getting better at it. The glazes, on the other hand, are very, very easy to do: your only limit really being how much time you want to put in putting down these thin, thin bits of paint and slowly building up a color transition. My problem with glazes is that 1) it's sometimes hard to tell if you are doing anything at all and 2) despite a lot of thinning, I still sometimes end up with paint drying and leaving 'rings' where I don't want them. Thoughts? Experience? Thanks!
