I was excited to be at Reapercon this year. There was so much I learned! One thing was shading to make figures more realistic. This was the figure I used to learn on. The only thing is, I wish I knew what figure it is - name and number. I'm trying to keep a log of colors used for figures. Anyway, I'm going to work on this next when I finish Benedikt
Hi all. I may have finished this guy in record time. I am trying this new thing where when I want to stop and get up from my desk... I don't . This is a bugbear that I just primed with a couple others even though I didn't really have any strong feelings about him. But as I started working on him I started to get more excited, which is something that's been happening to me more now. I just start a mini to get more stuff painted and end up liking the job. I have started to put more effort into highlighting because I got a nudge here on the forums and I am so glad I did. I really like the work I did on his armour, bringing the scales up to a brighter orange and ticking the edges with silver to make it look like the orange was paint wearing off. In person he really glitters with that silver, something that didn't quite come across in the picture. I like the highlighting I did with his skin and loincloth and also the silver rivets on the arm and shin guards. I hope you all like him too!
A year ago I painted my first minis for D&D. It's not my best work, but it's most definitely an upgrade!
Good evening everybody,
just got finished with this little lady last night, a female cleric from the Hackmaster series, sculpted by Jim Johnson. Like usual, looking at everything so closely I can see so many glaring errors, but I give up, must enjoy what I've done and not complain.
This little cleric lady looks kind of nun-like, but I didn't want to do her with blacks and whites so went for reds, oranges and yellows instead. Maybe she worships some kind of fire god, who knows?
Anyway, fun figure to paint and has that characteristic Jim John face, angular and a good time to paint:
My metals turned out I thought really blue, and upon reflection, the breastplate would have looks really cool were it to have been black, but maybe for my next female cleric, who knows?
And just in case you're curious, she is wearing a shoe, but it ended up getting a little too hidden in the grass.
So anyhoos, enjoy!
