RBG: Olsvalter the Aged

Olsvalter the Aged by Tre Manor

-Norse Human

 

I am attempting to do more work with pigment rather than glazing with inks for shading. After reading the discussion about it, I thought it would be a good idea to push myself. 

 

The base is custom with spackle, The design is done by me, although you can't see it right now.

This photo is not white balanced: It looked really odd when I tried to do it...

The display of the colors is accuate though.

The light bits are a light shade of GW: Shadow Grey.

Got some work done on him Sat. Not as much as I would like but some. I am thoroughly enjoying pushing my skills and using more blending with pigment paint and less ink washing. 

 

I saw a quote on someones signature about this and I am about to butcher it but, ""It is important to learn to paint as it is to learn your paint.""

Edit: pigment switched to paint.

Hi Arc!

 

Intrigued by this one... what do you mean "more working with pigments and less ink washing"? Are you using dry pigments? Because it does not look like it, so wow!

Hello my friend!

 

 I am using the term "pigment" to refer to paint in general. I just found I was using one color then ink wash/transitioning to the dark tones rather than using paint and working with the paint and different shades. Meaning taking the blue (at the bottom of my pallet on the latest photo) and lightening it then darkening it. I was taking an easier steps (in my opinion) to achieve my results. I got pretty decent at it, it's time to expand my skill and use color variation along side washing.

LOL it is funny we use waaay to many different words for the same things, but usually "pigments" evokes dry pigments I would say in most of us. So don't be inventing new words you funny guy, call it paint!  :blush:

 

I think the work you are doing so far is great. It also sounds like you are going backwards, most of us would learn to use paints to layer the highlights and shadows and then inks and glazes to smooth the transition. It would be interesting to hear your conclusions, because whenever somebody revisits a "basic" thing coming from something more advanced, usually the insight is eye-opening.

Definitely goign to keep my eye on this one!

 

 

Trying my had at free hand work. I haven't photographed it yet but I also RED ink glazed the entire free hand panels to tone down the blue. It turned out really well. I'll have those photo's tomorrow.

 

And I dont know why the owl looks like he is about to fall off his shoulder cause it doesn't look that way in person. :P

WOW! Love it.

 

Perhaps you caught the owl half-way from escaping when you took that pic. The minis... they move you know? When you are not looking?

That would be splendid Mr. Jason! I would say so, I've been eye balling RBG miniatures for a long while now but never had a reason to get them until now. I really like them, wish I had of gotten hooked on the KS for the Aenglish a while back.

 

The freehand is great!

Thank you kindly!

I'll have some more work done tonight! Got myself on a regimented system of painting now! Man I enjoy this hobby!

      Another Bones figure. I'm not entirely sure where the color scheme came from. I just started and it kind of grew. 
       

       
      This is a very annoying figure to paint. The hat brim is very wide and there's detail under it that is almost impossible to get to. The same is true of the beard. But the semi-random color scheme turned into something way outside what I usually paint, but in a good way.
       
      Bones are great for experiments, because I don't feel like I have to obsess about every detail like I would for a competition piece. And I think my quality is going up as a result.

      In 2018 I got one of my favourite 25th Anniversary miniatures, Darius the Blue. I actually have all three of Darius sculpts, the latest being my favourite too. 
      First I tried to paint it with the same mosaic pattern Reaper used, without any success, so I settled with... kind of a freehand that I didn't like at all and a very excentric color palette. 
      That (in my opinion) failed attempt got stuck on my head and recently I bought another one to paint it again, and I'm a lot happier with the results. This is my only "1 year improvement" pic, and I thought on sharing it here since being the exact same miniature I would love some feedback. 
       
      Here the 2018 version 
       

       
      And the 2019 version that I just finished today

      Hi there, this is my first attempt at OSL. I was going for drama, but it does seem a little heavy handed. I learned alot painting it. I'm fairly pleased with it.
      Feedback and questions welcome. Thanks for looking!

      My hommage to my favourite Disney movie growing up. I guess my fascination for wizards started here, to later mature with Gandalf and Raistlin. 
       
      I realize its a busy mini diorama, I did it that way to try convey the look of Merlin's room on the movie. Yet, I think the photos are quite bad.
