ub3r's WIP's and Workbench!

Recommended Posts

Thanks Siri! It was a fun project I got to try out a bunch of different stuff on. I think DF is going to post some final pics in the Figure Exchange thread, so I'm not sure if I should post them in a show-off or not as well.

 

ETA: Went ahead and added a couple of show-off pics along with the story, only 2 angles, if DF wants to add more please feel free!

Thanks Jay! Go check out the show-off to see finished piece if you like. I added the link to the post above yours.

The diorama is great. Sometime simple is best as that's something I get hung up on as I think I need to pack a lot of stuff into the scene and then never actually do the project.

Thanks MS! Yeah, I know what you mean by trying to pack too much into a tight space, which sometimes detracts or distracts from the main figure. As always, everyone's comments mean a lot to me and I try to get better and better with every piece I do, especially when I realize that I still have a heck of a lot to learn still.

I finished the Eye Beast last night, finally. Show-off here.

 

Then I got busy working on THE BARBARIAN DUDE!

 

WARNING: PICTURE HEAVY...

 

Decided to try out a new skin tone painting technique in doing so, but rather than using an air brush in this tutorial, I use my trusty W&N S7 size 1 brush.

 

Here are the colors I picked out to use:

Starting out with the HD Red to Base Coat him

After the HD Red, I added a little bit of the Golden Shadow to the mix and layered that on a little bit.

Then did some straight up Golden Shadow in thin layers.

Then added a little bit of the Golden Skin to the Golden Shadow and applied in thin layers.

Then just some light thin layers of the Golden Skin.

Then highlighted some of the higher areas and areas that would get direct light from above.

Back to the darker and using some more golden skin from below.

Guess I forgot to take a few pics because I did a little more with shading (using the purple) and highlighting back up, which I'll take pics of when I get home today and post.

 

Anyhow C&C are always welcomed and appreciated!

the red base coat. Especially in the middle pictures, really makes it look like both his arms were violently removed with a sharp implement

huh never thought to use a red basecoat. Looks good!

 

Thanks! Yeah, I liked the tutorial about the red base coat stuff at the top of the post if you are interested. Makes me wish I had an airbrush, but this is teaching me patience and more brush control.

Maybe they were. Don't judge him.

That's pretty cool.  That skin is looking great.  The back in that last picture is particularly interesting.  Loving the depth and definition.  You have the beginnings of a great piece on your hands.

 

Which ironically has no hands yet.

 

Not judging.

      I think I've hit that point where I can admit, I officially have too many projects going. I have three figures in various stages of being painted (the orc, elf ranger, and a halfling PC). I have a full box of Cadian Shock Troopers primed with only one test painted and that one isn't even fully test painted. There are three kobold in various stages of being painted and modified. I found some plastic skull rings that are being painted to be used as shields. I think the kobold with the sword would look great with a shield. Last but not least I have a wiz kids miniature I'm working on for my wife.
      At the moment I don't have a dedicated painting station, our place right now is pretty small. So I started using an old carving knife box to store my ongoing projects. It's never been this full before though. I know I can't be the only one with this problem, heck this might even be a mild case.

      Hail Repearites,
      Since my Bones I Kickstarter package arrived recently and I started to paint them, I decided that now is a good time to sporadically post my progress here, and maybe receive some valuable input.
      These are all meant to be tabletop quality (i.e. better quality than WotC's minis - the old batches).
      I am a newbie painter.
      I don't have a lot of spare time, so I sneak a few minutes here and there where I can.
      Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
       
      First up is a WIP of a paint and take from a local comic convention. We painted three space marines in 45 minutes, using truly horrendous brushes (think of Buglips brushes post Kaladrax), and Citadel paints (one red for base coating, one brown wash for shadowing everything, one pink dry goo for highlighting, and one grey gravelly paint for the base. I wish that I had taken down their names).
      This was a lot of fun, and most of all proved to me that I CAN paint minis quick and dirty and yet get a good enough result for tabletop games.
      The space marines were primed in black when we got them. The first coat was just sloshing red paint over them. The brushes allowed for no subtlety here. Think of painting a Reaper Bones Kobold with a tree trunk and you'll get the idea.

       
      Second coat: weird pink highlights. iPhone camera barely shows them, so you'll have to believe me.
      Third coat: shadow with the black/brown wash/ink - I think it had oil in the name.

       
      Final coat: basing the marines with a grey paint that had little bits of gravel on it - and explained why the brushes looked the way they were.

       
      After that I did some touch ups, but for some reason I can't find a picture of the results. I'll snap one later and attach it to this post.
       
      Next post : Flesh Golem, the oh so famous rats, and an orc and a goblin meet in an adventuring group.
