Just some stuff...

Recommended Posts

I still hate my frakkin goram camera!

 

Anyway, it's all eye candy. Getting my paints on something at times. Doesn't feel too bad to be painting again.

The Orc Butcher is an old Rackham piece, the paladin is for eBay this week, the High-Elf hero is a conversion for my D&D gaming group character, and the Rogue is for another player in my group. I really like painting up minis for the people in my group. Of course, the DM is no dummy, he keeps them...

 

I've started "blogging" occasionally over here, so you can follow stuff if you wish at http://jestersminiaturestudios.blogspot.com/

 

Thanks! See y'all soon!

Nice steel blade on that orc. Also liking the green hair/purple trim combo on the elf, gives him a very watery vibe with that trident.

Thanks, I wasn't sure at all how it would turn out. I added the purple trim on the scale-mail to try and balance the colors out overall.

 

The orc was an attempt at Con painting, and it's not quite up to that level for me yet.

All wonderfully painted minis. The Elf cleric is my fav. The way you have him painted ... he just pops! The really bright highlights just make him.

 

Thanks!

How in the world did you paint that Rackham Orc exactly like the studio used to paint it!?

 

I tried using Rackham's painting techniques and never achieved the same results they did!

One, I really tried out a new method. I was for the longest time sold on my past method of painting, the total leveling up of the paint, etc. However when deciding to get back into painting, I looked at some other's painting methods and studied them. I've already got a solid foundation, but now I wanted to expand my knowledge and potential as a miniature painter.

 

Pretty much it boiled down to the quality of paint and in what form of suspension, and PATIENCE.

 

Anyone who knows me, and how fast I used to paint, knows I have little patience. However, now adding in the ability to shade with glazes/washes in a controlled manner will actually INCREASE my painting time, and on some minis will make it turn out better looking. I'm not completely sold on my new method as it doesn't work with all colors/paint types, but I'm getting there.

 

As with anything you do: with understand comes acceptance, and with acceptance, comes action.

 

I just had to want to understand it and apply it until I figured it out myself.

I like your take on the Valloa figure. :)

 

I totally agree. I think Jester should send his to Reaper, and I should throw away the one that I was painting for Reaper.
