Hey all!

Started work on the Vrock:

 

post-14271-0-18483900-1438831029_thumb.jpg post-14271-0-44424700-1438831037_thumb.jpg post-14271-0-20265600-1438831047_thumb.jpg post-14271-0-68320200-1438831057_thumb.jpg

 

After priming, I airbrushed all the scaled skin with Tamiya Neutral Grey, and part of the wings and leg feathers with GW Scab Red.

Not much yet more tomorrow.

 

As always, C&C Welcome!

Hello again!

Got 2 more colors on him, Tamiya German Grey and Flat Yellow.

Tried to smooth out the transitions and cleaned up some with GW Scab Red as well.

I do lots of pics in my WIP threads, so you seem to be doing an average number which is good.

 

Really it's your thread, you can put up as many or as few posts and pics as you want. There's no rule or etiquette for it. :D

Thanks for the kind words all!

Tonights mission will be to clean up the greys that got over sprayed, and at least base coat the head neck. I plan on doing that with the same colors I do human skin with....

I am wondering if I should do 'traditional' yellow / orange on the legs below the feathers.

Also wondering in what direction to go with the grey 'scaly' areas. Green / blue as in reptiles, Orange / red as a 'trad' demon? Brown not likely, the other 3 demons have lots of browns in them... Or maybe a white / grey / black...

Descisions, descisions...

Guess that is what makes painting fun!

Anyone have suggestions, sing out!

OK

Been a while since I worked on this guy, he won't make the August cut, but...

I recently got new brushes, and am learning to wet blend and layer so he is a transition figure....

 

I re did the skin in a darker shade (GW Tanned Flesh), then washed it with GW Flesh wash. Tonight I went up a step with GW Dwarf Flesh in a layering style. Still getting a handle on how to do this, and I used my new Da Vinci Maestro #1 to do it. It kept spliting on me, don't know why, first time I used it...

 

Couple of pics:

Need to figure out a color for the body scales as well.... Any thoughts?

 

comments welcome! Tell me what I am doing right, better yet, tell me what I am doing wrong! (A much longer list I am sure!)

Did more work on him / her /it last night.

 

Decided to go with GW Bubonic Brown for the scaly areas. This was then washed with Inktensity Chestnut and Wood.

Wings feathers were washed, the grey with black, the Red with the Inktensity Chestnut.

Sword Blade done with a 50 / 50 mix of SC75 Black Metal and Thrash Metal. Shoulder piece, buckles, and sword furniture done with SC75 Necro Gold.

Skin layered with GW Bronzed Flesh. Beak and 'Horns' with GW Snakebite Leather.

Eye socket done with GW Scoched Brown

More work here as well....

 

I wanted to make the skin a bit more interesting, and remembered someone recently posting a Toad, that they added spots to, and decided that was what it needed. So I dotted on a 50 / 50 mix of SC75 Black and Wood from Inktensity. Some stayed in spots, some ran where it wanted and got cleaned. I left some in the recesses as well.

Forgot to mention that the chain mail got done with the same base coat colors as the sword blade.

Then went to work on the 'Golds', again SC75 Viking, Dwarf, and Elven golds, for the shoulder piece, sword furniture, and buckles. Going to look close at the 'Alchemies' in that set to see if I can go higher still...

post-14271-0-92200300-1441115839_thumb.jpg.

The sword blade got some SC75 Heavy Metal (Got to love a paint with that name!)

post-14271-0-94021600-1441115859_thumb.jpg

 

I think he is going to get a shot of Dullcote tonight, as the inks are making him shiny in places, and I like to see things how they will be when I am working on a figure....

Need to figure out what color to do his 'skirt' in as well...

Any thoughts? I am thinking either a blue or green as the front runners...

 

Hopefully more work tonight!

Comments welcome!

Got a bit of work done last night and tonight, added SC75 Cantabric Blue to his kilt. I chose blue to complement the Red and Yellow in his feathers

SC75 Speed Metal to the sword edges.

Washed the 'Black" feathers with a mix of GW Blue and Black inks.

His horns got another coat of GW Snakebite Leather, then a thinned coat of GW Bleached Bone.

More work on Vrock tonight as well.

His skin went up another layer by adding some GW Elf flesh to the mix, His eye was re-lined with GW Scorched Brown, Then the scalera with VMC Ivory.

The horns went from last nights Bleached Bone through VMC Ivory and then an Ivory and White miw

Belts high lighted by adding some SC75 Orange Leather to the blend from last night for a couple layers, then some SC75 Iroko was added for some more high lights.

His foot claws got done with Snakebite leather as well.

 

Phone pics again, Good ones when I get home from work!

Close ups of Face:

The top of the beak got some of the belt high light mix before the Orange Leather was added. I painted the beak this way from a reference photo of a vulture

I am thinking I might need to glaze the skin a little darker with the base coat color of GW Tanned Flesh...

Thoughts anyone?

 

Comments welcome!

This style of painting certainly takes longer than my old style, but the results are worth it. Every new mini helps me push on a little farther....

 

These may be / are 'table top quality' for many of you out there, but for me these are the best I have done!

The best thing is that each min completed becomes the new Best! (At least so far... :unsure: )

A spot of work got done on the Vrock last night...

 

Not a heck of a lot to show, but I used SC75 Inktensity Yellow with a tiny dab of Chestnut on the yellow parts of the feathers. I think I need to either do it a few more times at that concentration, or add more chestnut ink to the mix.

The Red feathers on the wings and legs got Inktensity Red ink, Then SC75 Aldebaran Red to start high lighting them. Feathers are a pain...

The Belt buckle and studs on his belts got coated with SC75 Decayed Metal, the Old copper. They are hard to see at the moment, but that will (hopefully) change as I move up the scale of coppers...

      AKA: Sophie's mom.  This is a model that really needs to be made in metal.  It's just awful in plastic.  Anyway, she sat on my paint table a long time before inspiration broke through and I did the wings. The rest just took patience.

      Hard to go wrong with sexy female demons, but this one was a devil in more than one sense of the word from start to finish.  Despite being cast in metal she is pretty fragile. The trident broke off and for years she sat in my box of unpainted figs, until one day I found the little pointy bit.  Her tail, likewise, kept bending and i was sure I'd lose that too. 
       
      Did her skin with the Bright Skin triad, because that's been waiting patiently for years as well.  Her face is a mess, but overall she came out ok.

      Finished my first mini this year, and oddly enough it was a speedpaint, taking just over an hour...





       
      On the flipside, some of those colours work together really, REALLY well, like Sunrise Orange and Heart Throb Paint.

      Having recently joined the airbrush crowd, I'm discovering how much i love blasting paint through it.  Saving so so so so much time on my zenithal priming groups of minis.  
       
      Now that I've got the priming and ink through it, I'm curious about another medium going through - varnish. 
       
      I own satin and gloss varnish from liquitex. I've used them as brush on, which isn't my favorite.  I want to know: 
       
      1.  Has anyone used this in an airbrush? 
      2.  If yes, how did you thin it?  Did you use airbrush thinner or something else? 
      3.  Does it require different means to clean after using? 
       
      I'm super paranoid about clogging or ruining this new tool of mine.  I found out Stynylrez primer wasn't just pour in and go.  Made for a fun clean up with my first go at priming.  
       
      There's a ton of stuff I'm seeing on testors dullcote from the bottle and mixing it with their thinner, but I'm hoping to use what i have if it's possible.  
       
      I'm not asking what you use as much as I'm seeking specifically "has anyone used liquitex varnish in their airbrush? "
       
      And... any pictures of your results?

      This is a vintage mini, Grenadier Dragonman Sorcerer, I got it from a BOGW a few years ago.
       
      I will use him as a Demon Officer in my Children of the Grave army, because I think he looks a bit like a classic Demon.
