77004: Cave Troll

 

Citadel: knarloc green, camo green, cathlan brown, thraka green, devlan mud

MSP: ruddy leather, oiled leather, linen white, sun yellow

P3: jack bone

 

Please excuse the poor photography. ^_^

This was painted for skin practice, it's my first attempt at trying more advanced techniques. I had a lot of fun with this one, and I think I'll be painting another in the near future.

 

Thanks for viewing!

I like the interplay between the highlights and shadows, where the highlights are more yellow but the deep shadows in his mucles is that dark green. The only question I have is why is sh so shiny was that on purpos?

I think it's a combination of the camera and the sealer ::(: , it has no shine in person.

The pics of my cave troll look shiny, too, although in person he's not really that shiny. In my case I think it was just a combination of the brighter green paint, sealer, and lighting when I took the pic. Nice highlights and shading around the folds and creases, btw.

      Now that my Bones 4 order is here, my backwards brain decided it's finally time to paint the fire dragon I've had in my box of shame for a year and a half! I don't think I can claim that I'm "new to painting" anymore, but this is my first dragon and by far the biggest mini I've attempted thus far. In order to actually paint more things I like instead of saving them until I've practiced or become good enough to attempt them, I'm trying to adopt the mentality of trying at least one new technique with every mini I paint. Hopefully this will get me out of my comfort zone and into some new styles and skills. 
       
      The focus of this guy is going to be blending, both wet and feathering. I'm still getting used to the process of documenting my WIPs, so if anybody has suggestions or requests (pics of my working palette, color recipes, what have you) please let me know. Lots of pics beyond the spoiler!

      This Bones figure was the demonstration model in my 2-hour "Good Fast Painting" class at ReaperCon 2017.  I got her about 2/3 done in the class.
      She stood half-painted on my shelf for a year and a half. 
      This past Sunday, I just needed to paint something, and this was it.  An hour later, I was ready to call her done. 
      As always, I spent a lot more time per square millimeter on the face & eyes.
      Enjoy!

      Got to get a brighter light, but here are my bugbears.

      Hey all, been a while.
       
      Quick job from Bones 4. Added a saddle, threw on a Mantic Soul Reaver cavalry rider with a head swap from Puppetswar.

      My first post here! I thought the bones 4 ape men would make good soldiers for my growing demonic army. Still thinking of tweaking some of the smaller details and considering also painting the armored one as a barlgura. Tried to give some texture by dry brushing orange over a black base coat for fur. I also tried to dry brush around the eyes to create a deep red glowing effect.

      C and c welcome but keep in mind I’m pretty new to this!
