Nice quick paints.

 

A general observation, using this thread as a summation of the five paint jobs; I know these are quick paints, but your art education shows. Nice use of color as always and interesting brushwork. However, the metallics stand out as subpar, as if someone else came in and painted those for you. I'm speaking specifically about the swords on the minis that have them out, but also to a lesser extent on the metallics in general.

 

As I said, I know they're quick paints and it's not a big deal. Just that the rest of your 'quick paint' is so outstanding that it's jarring to see the metallics so bland.

I enjoy seeing your work Pingo, you have a very non-traditional style of painting up your figures that make them look more like little pieces of art rather than someone trying to do all the techniques perfectly to make them look super realistic. It's always interesting to see your take on these figures.

Ah, apologies.  I did look at all of them (I think) and it is true that the swords are all standard metallic paint.  Having never tried NMM, I'm not sure whether it could ever fit into the category of "speed paint". 

 

I would be interested in knowing what Pingo's definition of "quick" is, however.  Inquiring minds, and all that.  ^_^

Dontfear: I agree about the satin finish. I'm still working on getting a matte finish on minis, and for some reason Bones seem a little more resistant to it, at least for the techniques I've been using. I may take photos before putting on the sealer next time.

 

Cash: Thank you. I think you're right about the swords. I suspect my metallic painting is still stuck as it was when I was a teenager, and although I have experimented with it a little bit, for fast painting I reverted to my old ways. I will give it some thought.

 

LittleBluberry: I painted these in two sessions of two or three hours each. For me that's fast. There was an extra half hour or so spread over two days sealing with gloss and then matte medium.

 

 

The other four Bones pirates are:

It's Easy*! Just paint it how you would with regular paint. There are some areas that look good (the highlight and shading on Mariel's bell guard for instance), so just work on more like that and you'll be fine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

* Suggestion not easy and suggested by a party with very little experience in the requisite techniques.

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
       
      It went better than I expected.

      I may end up doing a bunch of image dumps - I've painted a lot this year and maybe I should just post them in sets. 

      This one, though, deserves its own post, I think.  I painted up the Green Dragon Hatchling from waaaay back in Bones 2, showed it to my wife, and she made some suggestions - so here you have it painted up as a Swamp Dragon from the Discworld, as kept by Lady Sybil of Ankh-Morpork.  I gave them a collar and name plate, and since they're a tame dragon, I gave them a few chew toys, including a Rolly Ball just like Rex of "Snake Discovery," as can be seen here:

      It's Krampus time! 🙂
      So, the challenge here was to use the Holiday Paint Set as the main/core palette.  Which turned out to be a no challenge at all.  This figure is pretty much calling for a certain palette to be used on it.  Never the less, the fun has been had with this one 🙂 
      All sorts of comments are always welcomed!

      Rare for me, a one miniature thread.
       
      It seemed to be appropriate for the season to paint him up.  I missed Krampusnacht by a bit, oh well.
