White is so tricky. Looking forward to see how this progresses. The whites I have done have all been ivory / brown up to white. Think the blue up to white will be good.

I guess I should start wrapping these WIPs into a single thread at some point. That time is now! The place is here!

First up we have the RPG March challenge project. The idea is to take a mini and paint it up like a character from a video game RPG. I decided on one of my vary favorite CRPGs of all time, Ultima. The model will be painted as the Avatar, the player's character.

I started with 03556: Ashlan Fellthrush, Heroic Paladin. First thing that had to go was the shield emblem, as that needs to be a serpent.

 

Avatar_WIP_1.JPGAvatar_WIP_2.JPG

 

Then priming and lining.

 

Avatar_WIP_3.JPGAvatar_WIP_4.JPG

 

And finally the base coating.

 

Avatar_WIP_5.JPGAvatar_WIP_6.JPG

 

Bronze skin, blond hair, white tabard, lots of gold. My first stab at white, I'm going for a cool white and that blue will really be more for the undersides and very deepest folds, not much should show by the end. There's going to be prominent freehand on this, I'm a bit daunted but it should be educational.

 

 

The whole mini is so warm I wanted to put in some cool colors. On the other hand, a warm white may have been more cohesive. Thought about it for a while then just grabbed a color and started painting.

It's hard to conceptualise a cool undercoat with warm armour vs a warm undercoat for the tabard. So much will change in the colours as it painted. The fun of doing unique concepts with miniature painting! :)

Apologies for the crap pics. Another month and I should be back at the desk with more lighting.

 

Avatar_WIP_7.JPGAvatar_WIP_8.JPG

 

Second layer for the white, Snow Shadow over all but the deepest shadows.

 

Avatar_WIP_9.JPGAvatar_WIP_10.JPG

 

Third layer, Ghost White. Starting to work against me, getting chalky.

 

Avatar_WIP_11.JPGAvatar_WIP_12.JPG

 

Final layer, Pure White. Super chalky. Decided to walk away from it for the night and look at it with fresh eyes tomorrow.

 

White is so difficult, I welcome any feedback on using it better. White and paints mixed with it have been a real struggle for me and I haven't learned how to layer with it yet. I like to use thin layering. Halp!

This is great, the challenge would be incomplete without the Avatar. I like the idea of using a cool white to balance out the orange, but he is still very orange. Depending on which version you are going for, maybe a deep red would help? But I have faith in the eight virtues that you will figure it out.

To get rid of the chalk texture add some reaper brush on sealer to your paint. Wren recommended it to me last summer and I have yet to have any issues since. If you need to fix what you've already painted just add it in a 2:1 or 3:1 mixture (sealer: paint) then to some thin glazing till it gets corrected. May take 10 passes or so.

 

I think white is easier if you shade down from your brightest highlight then reclaim where needed. I also have seen it used, but not tired myself yet, blue or pink to shade white and it looks awesome. Really thin glazes of color so the deepest shadows only have a bit of color. Thought I had an example saved on my drive but I couldn't find it.

Hmm, I do like the idea of glazing down from the highest high. I did that with Orson's blue robe down to dark purples and it looked so smooth. I'm making a note here. Isn't the brush-on sealer just a matte medium? I use liquitex but I've been trying to simplify things by just thinning with water the last couple projects. I'm making another note. There will be cake later.

 

Pragma, the 'orange' is the base coat of Oiled Leather for the nmm gold. His face is also 'orange', he's not from Jersey, it's the shade color for the bronzed skin triad. I like it for the similarity to Oiled, actually. Both components will go in very different directions soon enough. Actually, the amount of nmm gold is quite substantial, I was considering making more of it steel...I also considered the classic red tunic, but I wanted to tackle white. Until I have the basics covered I have to keep pushing myself to learn new things with every project.

I use to think that as well, as Wren said it was similar enough, but it smells like a varnish and not like the P3 matte medium I have. I only have to use this with skin tones and whitish things but I tend to add it to any highlight as it's seriously a miracle worker with my glazing.

White is not as hard as black. :)

 

The cool white will be good when its done have faith.

 

As to painting it the blending and layering techniques you have developed work the same with white, but the highlight of pure white needs to be much larger than for a normal colour. Depending on how bright you want your white up to half of the colour can be pure white.

 

Good to see you start a workbench as well :)

Yeah, it's kind of the opposite of black, where you want to leave a lot of the shadows in black to keep the color readable. I find black easier because so far my main challenge hasn't been colors but rather the consistency of white. The black on Ororo came out ok, even if it's a biznatch to photograph.

I too have had this chalky problem with white. It's extremely frustrating. I have to say that blending down from bright white is easier. But I am wondering about doing a two phase method. So make 50% top highlight white and bottom half the blue then two brush blend the two together in the middle? Loving conversations around this, will move my painting on ;)

Hi there! I'm not dead yet, it's just a flesh wound! This last project got a bit much for me, so I took a month off. I'd been pushing myself pretty hard with painting the previous eight months straight and needed a break. Also, going to set the Avatar aside for a while just for the clean break. That ton of nmm gold isn't what I want to start back into it with!

 

So today I cleaned up a couple options for the next project. I think I'll be painting Cave Girl from Bombshell, with Shanna the She-Devil from Marvel's Savage Lands as inspiration. I also cleaned up her companion as well as a couple Sedition Wars game minis, a trooper and zombie.

 

Shanna is pinned and ready to go, then back in the saddle. Maybe give those G&G brushes a whirl.

I've done that in the past. Last year I think I had about 3 months where I didn't paint (not back to back though). I'm trying to prevent that this year by forcing myself to do more 6-8 hour paint ups instead of constant back-to-back 20+ hour ones.

That's my thought as well. The two SW minis will be a bit more than just rush jobs, as they are prototypes for color schemes to follow. But that will then give me the blueprint for a whole slew of minis that are really only tabletop, as well as the occasional hero unit or metal non-game version to a higher standard.

 

Shanna and the strain zombie primed and ready to paint. Trooper I'm debating the best way to approach him. Prime, paint, assemble? Prime, assemble, paint? Assemble, prime, paint? Looks tough getting into the space between his gun and body after assembly.

 

Have to clean up the camera (1GB card full!) but should have at least some primed pics tonight or tomorrow. Rain for the rest of the vacation, so half the chores are excluded :p

      Needing a break from resin (and not knowing how I want to paint my latest print), I have turned back to more basic crafting with xps foam.  Leaning heavily on the teachings of Black Magic Craft on YouTube.  These were also good to pick at during the seemingly 10000 hours of teleconferences I was on last week. 
       
      3/4” by 2.5” forms were cut and deck screws added to one end to provide some weight.  I next marked out every 1/4”, then scored then with the knife and speed square.  The verticale cuts were eyeballed about 1/3 of the way in on alternating rows (I did half one way, the other reversed to add some variety). I then went over all the cuts with a pen to increase the indent and soften the inner edges.  

       
      I then cut out the end caps 1” square and textured everything, pillars included with rolled up tin foil.  

       
      Lastly, I used hot glue to assemble the pieces.  

       
      hope to get them primed tomorrow and then a quick paint job on Sunday.   Not that we’re playing D&D these days but I hope to have a few more pieces of terrain ready to go for when all this horrible stuff passes and we can resume our normal routines.  
       
      Thanks for looking.

      I base coated this guy (Otherworld Shadow 1 of 2) in Reaper Nightmare Black (a gorgeous blue-black) and drybrush highlighted with a 50/50 mix of Oceanic Blue and Pure White. 
       
      I think he looks done! Thoughts? Too heavy on the dry brush? I plan to use some Vallejo Ground Texture on the base. Happy to hear comments and criticism.

      So I’ve been burning through resin for the past few weeks.  Been focusing on busts as my collection of unpainted minis is... impressive.  I should be painting those, but...  Other than my airbrush exploding on me (paint bubbling up through the trigger), this guy hasn’t taken much time yet.  
       
      Got this from Fotis Mint on Patreon along with a bunch of other ones. 


      Printed with a mix of regular clear Elegoo resin mixed with clear red ABS-like Elegoo, about 70/30.  
       

      Primed with Vallejo black primer then base coated with Reaper Coal Black (my new favourite black!!) with a drop of Minitaire Green ghost tint to help enhance the green hue.  
       

      he then got a bib and I hit his face with Reaper Mist Green mixed with some white with a lighter (much more white than Most Green) highlight.  
       

      i then glossed up the face with some varnish. 
       

      His face then got some washes.  Old GW Ogryn Flesh thinned down all over, Vallejo Model Wash Dark Green on the skin and Minitaire Fresh Blood Ghost Tint on the lips and teeth.  
       
      The crown then got a base coat of Reaper Scorched Metal.  
       
      Apparently I didn’t take shots of it, but I then mat coated it and cleaned up the black around the face.  
       
      Tonight I’ll bring the skin back to an almost pure white, leaving the washes in the cracks and I’ll get his mouth done.  
      The crown is a more silver colour in the comics but I’m planning on sponging lighter metallics on to give it a less pristine look.  The leather will be relatively plain as I want the face to stand out, but it will get some highlights and buckles picked out. 
       
      Thanks for looking.

      I planned to go for the coloring suggestion on the box, except with brighter feathers. After base coat and a wash it seemed to turn rather plain. I keep the underside this way, while for the top side of the wings I started adding some variation to the feathers, gradually daring to add more detail and contrast. Took a while to get there, but in the end I was happy and called it finished. I even took a fun picture with it:
       

       
       
       
      But now that I'm a few minis wiser, I demoted him from finished to lacking base. And this is where I am stuck now. 
       
      I had this plan of making a sandstone cliff looking base. I positioned him and started building up terrain, working carefully not to damage the finished mini. I colored some stones of various sizes in a few colors so I don't need to paint as much around the mini and I started to glue my rocks carefully around the base. 
       

       
      I kept working on it for hours thinking I am getting somewhere, but once I took a break and looked at it again from all sides... I stand by my rocks, I think in a few steps they'll look great, but the scene makes no sense. These are not cliffs, more like a stone quarry, what would a griffon be doing there? - that's too specific and unlikely.
       
      Time to "delete" this somehow and start over... Wish me luck!
