The Great Community Ogre Adventure (official WIP thread)

Recommended Posts

I got back from vacation last night (and crashed for around 10 hours). Starting tonight, we get to find out how fast I can finish up my Ogre with a little more time on my hands. Anybody want to bet on whether I get anything done before I pass out from jet lag?

 

Buglips: Have you considered adding a thread for our finished products in the "Show Off" forum? Do you think it would help, or just take up space?

Alrighty, I'm throwing in my hat for this one... got a Bones Ogre, all ready to go. First step, primed with black gesso and drybrushed white.

I have absolutely fallen in love with the combination of black primer and dry brush white, as you might notice from the pile of minis behind the ogre there...

Finished base coating last night. The last few bits got sloppy because my cat was trying to call attention to his empty belly situation.

Couldn't resist popping open L2P kit #1 for the Tanned Flesh for the wrappings :)

Wiley - I really suggest getting a knife and taking that mould line off the left knee. I know it isn't the only one we can still see but as you paint the highlights and shadows that one is going to stand out more and annoy you. Alternatively get some moulding paste (aka Liquid Greenstuff) from a craft store and use that to smooth the line. (This stuff has been a god send for my minis to be honest, all those nasty little join gaps so easily taken care of and it takes paint without needing to be primed if you get the white stuff. It also sets hard and can be sanded/filed/scraped etc.)

On another mini, sure. This is a protest about how much I hate the mold lines on this mini. They're baaaad. Just painting it for fun before I return to trying to paint well :)

I realized after I took the pictures that I had forgotten the feet. :lol: So, those have been done as well.

I've shaded the skin and started highlights. Decided I'm going to try to paint it as quickly as I can as a sort of challenge type thing. Really I just want to dive into the L2P kits and, you know, learn what the heck I'm doing!

I'm planning on doing this when my kits come in - do all of them, and then tackle the ogre again, since I have doubles. :lol:

Okies, done with the basecoating. Going to let it all dry over night, then hit it with the Quickshade in the morning. :blush: I did some rough inking on this one - P3 Flesh Wash over the skin, brown ink on the leather bits and the club.

Yesterday was a bit discouraging with the skin tones. Couldn't nail my initial intention, so I salvaged it with a fairly blah nondescript skin tone. Tried putting in cool tones and it bombed pretty bad. Since I've only done it once, and that with instructional help, I realized I was going through the motions that didn't fit this tone at all. Just as I nodded off in bed, the little voice in the back of my head said 'break out your color wheel, dummy', Today I obeyed, and while not stellar, the results were at least in the direction I'm shooting for. Again, trying for a quick paint job (as I measure time).

For some reason my initial pics were blown out, too light. So I tweaked a few things and now they're all dark. Whatevs, WIP lolnuts.

 

Oh, went for a brand on the shoulder, at least that worked out pretty well.

RIght on, I can already see improvement in your work! Everything looks great, but the red bag is a bit loud.

 

My warrior Morrigan Maeve hit 40 last night! (on Gates of Madness, of course)

      Ordered Ma'al Drakar to play the role of Tiamat in my Rise of Tiamat campaign I'm currently running. (Icons of the realm Tiamat is just to small IMHO)
       
      Having just received it in the mail I'm finally understanding the scale of the project I have Doomed myself to. Lol
       
      I was wondering if people had tips on mold line removal for pieces this large, what you suggest for Gap filling between all the assembled pieces, should I prime before assembly, and if there is a best way (or horribly wrong way) to pin all the pieces together.

      Hello again forum family, I keep my purple period rolling on :D
      This time wanna share with you my version of Eilluvasheth. Beingi n my purple phase the dominant color is purple, and what's better than a gold armor to complement it?
      So I've tried to paint it in NMM to challenge me as NMM is out of my comfort zone. Still I'm trying to figure out where to place the shines and to maximize the contrast, but in the end I'm pretty happy of her, also considering that this lady is full of tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiny details 
      Also i'm trying to pump the shadows instead of the hi-lights to maximize the purple contrast, just to avoid it to look pink.

      Hope you'll like her :)

      Now, nipples are covered in armor, but to avoid mods to delete the pics, I'll link the front one.

      As always every c&c is more than welcome.
      Thank you for watching

      'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders. 
       
      If you're one of my players, please don't read the spoiler!
       
      The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.

      Hello forum family, I wanna share with ya all my most recent fatigue: Marthragul!
      I was in doubt if painting it into a realistical Earth dragon, or something more colourful... The Magenta won! :D 
      And I chose to don't cut corners, so no drybrush, no washes, no feathering... just dear, old layering, shading and glazing 
      ...cause I'm a fast painter, as you know 

      And, yeah! This took me almost a month of at least two hours per day... basically I hate this dragon now 

      Enough talking, time for pics :D




      I really hope you like it, if you have any question do not hesitate :)
      As always every C&C is more than welcome.
      Thank you :)
