Two things I need some help with

Recommended Posts

First and foremost: my Dad is getting into the hobby with historical models in 54MM and since he's blue/green color blind he wants to do his models in black and white. The two of us spent a couple of hours yesterday looking for tutorials (or an information really) to no avail. So I figured I'd ask you guys for some help on this subject. So the question is basically where can I find a good tutorial for my Dad on how to paint models in black and white or even sepia.

 

And the other (less important) subject: I got this model from Freebooter awhile back:

Now I want to paint her for a local show next year and can't think of a good color pallet for her. I'm thinking of putting pink somewhere on the clothes and have her wear white leggings since I don't know who to paint shear fabric.

Miniature Mentor has a tutorial from Jen Haley on monochrome technique:

I haven't seen that tutorial, but the other tutorials I've seen from Miniature Mentor have been well done and Jen is a brilliant painter, so I'd give it a try.

I'd be tempted to use a moss green or a very dark green with pink. Both will give you good contrast, but not so much as too look cartoony.

 

And if you'd like a tutorial on sheer fabric, see this one by Anne (Vaitalla):

I'm sure it is, but I'm looking for something that is published online right now. Although I might end up getting the DVD eventually.

 

As for the other thing: I'm looking for pallet ideas. Not a shear fabric tutorial right now.

Derek (DKS) will also be doing his Monochrome Color Schemes class at ReaperCon this year. I realize that doesn't help you in finding a free tutorial, but if you can make it to Texas in May we not only have that class on the schedule but several historicals painters who will be showing up to enter the painting competition with their pieces, who your dad might be able to talk to and get some suggestions from. ::):

If only I could make it, I highly doubt I could convince my Dad to go to Reaper Con. But thanks for the heads up though.
