Svartulf The Savage - RBG0305

Recommended Posts

After painting the Craven from Red Box Games I thought I would have had my fill

of them.  I saw Svartulf (Black Wolf) and went nuts.  Yeap, I decided I had to have

another Trebeard fix.  You called that one correctly ub3r_n3rd (oh great enabler)...LOL.

 

I also discovered that my  camera can take a photo under nine (9) inches from the mini.

I should have been using it all along.

I will be posting few photos on this WIP,

photography has been cutting into my paint time.

 

Here is the primed Svartulf The Savage.

(I think I saw him on a Motorcycle this morning),

I saw that guy at a Ren Fair once. Hint for painting him: he's got a tattoo on his left shoulder of himself from about shoulder level-up, wearing that helmet.

 

Don't ask. Just do it. You'll thank me later.

That was the guy with the red rose on his other shoulder that said "MOM" wasn't it...ROFL  !!!

Got some time in on getting some good black wash into the Animal Pelt around waist,

got some liner on him so I can see what his happening muscle wise, and put some

Gunmetal on the metals on Body... helmet, braces, etc...

Put eyes (what a pain) and basic skin tone on face

I can tell when I really am going to enjoy painting a miniature; by the way that I paint the

rough in.  Washing the furs was a pure joy, this will be a wonderful experience of painting !

 

So here is where he is at now.

I must like cold coffee and miniatures for breakfast.

Read the foreign language news, then paint miniatures with my first cup of coffee.

Miniature wins, I get to sip cold coffee..ROFL.

 

Svartulf The Savage is slowly emerging into full color.

Base coat of flesh, pelt has been drybrushed with a low highlight.

Individual strokes are needed to put on a focal point.

Painted the leathers black, with a gradual highlight into the midnight blues on the leather.

He's coming along !

 

Here are three photos of this mornings session.

Gotta say these pics are showing your work off much better, happy that you got your camera and picture-taking stuff figured out, Jay.

LOL.. They give the impression that I might have a clue about what I am actually doing (don't bet on it folks).

I'm just slogging and tossing the paint.  Every now an then I get a good idea.. (not that often).

I do have a great time at it though !

I've been experimenting a lot today with how I paint.

Not changing WHAT I do; but how I go about things.

I usually paint all around the figure, balancing things out.

Today I have been working on individual components.  Flesh,

pelts, leather.  Really getting into color mixing on the leather.

I really like how that looks, doing the same thing with the muscles also.

I will have to be careful now when I do another component NOT to screw up what

I like; however; I do like what I am looking at.

 

Here's Svartulf:

I am loving the new focused pics Jay.   They do show your work in a much better light and thus make your skills shine!

I have to agree with you robinh; it also makes me raise the bar in how and what I am painting.

I see more of a continuity and contrast in what I have done.

So its really a win win for me. 

Fun to see the color progressions also.  I'm really enjoying the blue on that leather.

I actually had a cup of HOT coffee this morning, then the second one went cold..chuckle.

 

Svartulf is now coming alive in my hand.  I've entered that stage where it is so much fun to

allow yourself to experiment, and go with what the flow dictates.  He's looking a bit different

today than he was yesterday, that is for sure !    I'm really liking where he is at.

Doing component by component is a very strange way to paint for me; but I can see the

difference in my output.  Satisfaction is more immediate, that is for sure.

 

So here is Svartulf The Savage:

I'm a bit unsure about his horn tips in red. Is it supposed to be blood/gore or warpaint?

 

His skin and the blue kilt are looking really good though!

I'm thinking blood, but they may go back to white with the black tips...

:rock:

Just gonna let it talk to me for a bit. 

Thanks ub3r, !  Your input is always appreciated and valued !
