Here is an index to all my completed minis.

If there is no link, that means I haven't started painting. A link to a WIP thread will appear if I'm working on it currently. *WIP(start) means it's the first post for a particular project in my defunct consolidated WIP thread.

First update. This was done at the same time (same with the 2 remaining mega minis to follow) as my first attempts at the Werewolf and Spirit bones.

 

DEAL-0172

 

I had some issues with stupidly trying a walnut wash later in the process. It made everything dirty and I just had no interest in doing stuff over. You can really see it on the back (right) arm.

post-12970-0-24896500-1387554303.jpg post-12970-0-56631800-1387554300.jpg

 

I was really happy with the highlights and shadows on the cloak and the under robe, before I used the wash, but I don't think they show up well in these pics.

 

Some fiddly bits with the chest piece that I didn't want to deal with then, but I'd probably try to do a better job on now. There are some transitional eyes for me - I succeeded with one, not so much the other - moved on after 3-4 attempts and not getting better.

 

I'm definitely finding greens to be challenging - they just look very thin to me.

02509: Mother Superior

 

This was also at the same time as the second batch of mega minis, and the werewolf and spirit.

I also had some issues with a dirty final wash, but I did some touch ups after. I was originally going to try NMM, but I decided not to after the extra work. I had some problems with the eyes initially, but these turned out the best of this round of minis.

I'm really happy with how the cloth looks, though I would probably try to up the contrast more now.

A couple of pieces of advice I'll pass on to you after they were given to me to help with your issues here.

 

1) Washes/Glazes - You'll want an almost opaque consistency and use a wash color that is a contrasting color of what your main color is with a wash, for a glaze it's going to be a little bit thicker. For example if you look in my WIP thread and the discussions that dontfear and Willen had with me it might help you see what I'm talking about.

 

2) Now applying them doesn't mean slathering every bit of the mini in it, just paint it on with a smaller brush into the cracks and crevices that wouldn't see light to darken them up otherwise you get the dirty look you are talking about.

 

3) Greens - Some colors are more opaque/thinner than others, this is alright. I've found through discussion with the better painters on here and through my own experimentation that thinning paints down is better. For example even with a green the only time I would leave it alone w/o thinning it is on a bones figure when I'm applying it's first base coat since priming bones isn't something that is recommended. On metal after I've primed it, I will usually thin with distilled water 2:1 or 3:1 with the paint depending on the pigment of the paint. The thinner paints means a few more layers, but it also means a much smoother look to your paint job and an easier time blending with your other shades of that color.

 

I hope this helps, I'm not an expert, but I do read a lot on these forums and engage a lot of the better painters in discussions. Keep practicing and keep posting your work, in no time you'll be putting out really great pieces everyone will envy.

DEAL-0494

 

There wasn't much to do on this mini, so I experimented a bit on the shadows and highlights. Even though I screwed up a few things on the front, it helped figure out a few things. I like how the shadows on the back of the jacket and pants look. The basecoat was sapphire blue, and the shadow was breonne blue, with a highlight of ashen blue. Even though they aren't a triad, I really like how those work together. I just noticed now I don't have any final full-body pics, and the mini is at a friend's house for the moment, so I'll just post a close-up of the missing detail - the shirt and tie.The area isn't even as big as the nail on my pinky, so it'll probably be a while before I update things. It's the only thing changed from the full-body pics here.

1) I think the issue in the washes for this set of minis was that I tried partly thinning them with matte medium... it totally threw things off - because there was much more colour than I was expecting.

3) I find that whenever I talk about thinning to that ratio - which is typical for me - I get comments about painting with water.

Anyways, I was wondering if green was generally one of those colours that's thinner? Obviously I didn't have enough layers on the tunic.

I've never thinned with Matte Medium, my preference is distilled water, but I use Reaper MSPs. Not sure what paint(s) are in your collection.

 

For thinned paints, it's all personal preference, you need to feel comfortable with the consistency of the paint you are putting to the brush and from the brush to the figure. So if it's 5:1 paint:water or something else, make sure you like it. As far as colors that are thinner, some pigments and brands of paints are just thinner in general, I still like to dilute/thin even my thinnest paints even if it's just a little bit, because I've found that more layers with thinner paint makes a much better looking paint job in the end with a smoother look to it that doesn't look "chalky."

I use mostly Reaper MSP. There's a list of my paints in my WIP thread. I have 2 thinning solutions - distilled water 100% in one, and a formula from the Craft blog that's 25% flow retarder, 25% flow improver,50% distilled water. I did a fair amount of browsing before starting - though that only helped so much until I started painting.

Oh okay, the RMSP are pretty nice (though I haven't tried any of the other good brands). I also have that 25/25/50 solution made up, but I didn't like how it behaved when I first started out painting so I just thin with the water now and am happy with it, but again it's a personal preference that every painter has to decide on their own.

 

It's amazing how much information is on this board alone, but the true test does come when we try to apply the paint to the figures. It really is an art form and takes a lot of practice to get done right, which is part of the reason I have my own WIP/Showoff threads, it gives me a chance to get good advice from people and look back to where I started and where I am currently at in the hobby.

DEAL-0336 - Thief thrusting

 

Same time frame as all the other pics posted today.

 

This one I had worked up the perfect skintone, with shadows and highlights, and then ruined it with a wash. Same issue as in the above posts. This mini now looks weirdly pale to me, and the skin is not nicely blended. I did some touch-ups to try and get it so I didn't hate it, but I didn't want to do too much work. I like how the eyes turned out, but the lips look like there's some lipstick. Funny thing, I remember not doing any eyebrows - those somehow came to be naturally in the point between the eyes and skin on the face/head. No idea how that happened.

The thrusting wrist is really thick,and looks really strange to me with the muscle definition that exists in the arm.

 

I was trying to make this guy look poor, and I think I succeeded. I didn't have many browns so I mixed up a weird brown/grey that was supposed to represent a dark wool for his pants. I like that colour, but I think I had a hard time figuring out how to shade or highlight it at the time. The left side looks much cleaner than the right one - not quite sure why that is, I'm a bit too far removed in time to remember. There's also a small chip in the money pouch/bag on his belt.

Ghost 77007

Just finished today. The photos don't do it justice. When I get a chance I'll replace the pics with better ones.

 

Ashen Blue base, down to Corporea Black in the shadows,and linen white for the highlights.

Tombstone in Rainy Grey and Walnut wash.

This one has been feature in the WIP thread.

 

Updated with new photos...

Werewolf 77009 #2

 

I wanted to do a grey wolf version this time.

I'm not wild about the how the photos turned out - they don't show the amount of contrast visible in real life. I decided to call this one a day, mostly because it would be more work than I was prepared to do, to go back and fix the colour issues I created for myself.

 

I didn't have a dark enough grey for the back/head, so as to be able to go rainy grey> linen white on the front of the body,and limbs. I wanted to try and duplicate the coat of a wolf, and how it was much much lighter on the underside. It works in person, but not really in these photos. I did a few walnut washes to darken things a bit on top, then brushed rainy grey in.

The bits of tan colour on the head/neck got lost in that process.

As a public service announcement, I'm just reminding people to update forum links in signatures/ posts, because they're all broken after the migration. I'm just getting started on mine. Just glad I don't have pages and pages of stuff to go through.

I'm sad though, because there were a number of things I bookmarked that are lost.
