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..
Finished up the Vourgha the Ogre late last night, and based him this afternoon.
So here he is!
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
Of to Irrisen in Golarion now for a few hours...
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:
SO, I've been scouring the forums here, on CMON, and Dakka; looking into how to mix washes and glazes. I have come away from this a bit confused and little overwhelmed with information I must admit.
I completely understand the respective uses of washes and glazes, but, specifically whats confusing me is how I would go about mixing them. Everywhere I look there's a different answer, some people use only water for glazing, others use glazing medium, some matte medium, then some say forget medium it's cheating, and to only use flow improver+water/water alone. Then conversely there are those who use flow aid + water for washes and regular thinning only, and further yet those who will make a wash using only water, or only flow improver, or even flow improver + water + medium!
I do understand that something like this can be highly personal and differ greatly from person to person, because of style, desired effect, etc.
Also, I know I might get even more differing opinions here, but, hopefully a general consensus can form.
So the real question comes to two things:
A. How would you mix a consistent and smooth glaze, without getting the sort of "dirty/uneven" effect that seems can occur from only using water
B. How would you mix a wash for any color, that will pool well into recesses, without really affecting the color integrity of the surrounding area, and without tide marks
Thanks for any and all help ^.^
I'm curious about how people feel about the following limited paint colors:
Big Top Red
Breast Cancer Awareness Pink
I have read many great things about ones like Clockwork Brass. But I would be curious to know (and assume others would also) how people have used these colors on their figures. How might you highlight, shade, or base coat with them. Any general feelings on what makes the color good or how you have used and liked them.
And ONLY comments about the paint colors and your opinions on them please! Let's keep on topic about usage and similar things.
