Good afternoon, Ladies and Gentleman.

 

Welcome to the Department of Inspirations thread of Reaper Forums.

 

This new department will be dedicated to posting things that inspire our imagination with regard to our hobby.  It can be anything really but you need to post why it inspires you and how it relates to the hobby.

 

Here's an example:

 

Katarzyna Górska posted this gorgeous WIP base on Facebook earlier today.

My thoughts:

 

It's a lot of freehand painting and some cool actual raised sculpting.  Looks nearly complete to me, so I can't wait to see the finished product.  It reminds me of the stuff I did with the cork rounds; Geode Base.  I might try doing something similar.

 

 

Rules for this thread:

 

Well, naturally Reaper's forum rules apply.  So no commerce links.  If you are inspired by a photo on an commerce site find the company's Facebook page or other social media site that has the same pic and then provide that for a link.

 

Use common sense and let's keep it to; "How the art or whatever it is inspires you with regards to the hobby."

 

Above all let's inspire each other.

Great thread idea!!

 

I'll update this post in a bit with some of my inspirations.

 

ETA:

 

Barbarian from Ares Mythologic

What I love about this piece is not only the awesome figure, but the atmosphere and mood that the painter (Pro Arnau Lazaro) accomplished, really dig the skin tones as well. It's moody, dark, brooding, and dangerous. It shows what can be accomplished with a simple and effective base that doesn't distract from the figure at all, but still has the same colors in it for cohesion.

Cang the Implacable from CMON.  And to answer the obvious question, that little dude on the dragon's back is indeed 28mm scale folks - which means that big lizard is over two feet high.  An epic-sized miniature with a sweet paint job, what's not to like?  This piece is my go-to as far as inspiration goes for the much anticipated Tianot release from Reaper.  That is not to say that I will not commit unspeakable acts in order to get my hands on one of these OOP Cang sculpts given the chance . . .

I do believe that is Aaron Jovejoy's work. Always did like that particular dragon, just no cash to get it.

 

Nice idea for a thread. I like!

This is done by Åukasz Grzyb (aka C'tan).

 

He has a blog, but since it is commercial I can't link.

Seek it out yourself.

 

But his works are amazing.

 

This Piece in particular astounds me..so awesome.

Here's a follow up to the base I posted at the top of this thread.  Great work and once again very much inspiring.  Can't wait until they post a picture of the whole piece.

      Let's get this party started!
       
      Huzzah!

      I started this in a WIP and have finally finished my first background for taking pictures.  This one is made with fairly lightweight watercolor paper.  I taped it down tight, primed with gesso, and built up from light to dark layers (all cheap craft paints).  The concept was for the whole thing to appear nebulous, as a dark cloud with obscured lighter flashes.  I think it turned out pretty close to my vision.  The half-painted creatures are just my first test shot with the background.  My phone camera did occasionally try to focus on the background, so on the next attempt (some kind of brighter theme) I will try to soften the edges (paint started to dapple on the blacks and grays).  What do you think?
       
      WIP here:  http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/83003-attempting-to-paint-generic-backgrounds-for-miniature-photography/&tab=comments#comment-1760821
       
      For those curious, the bug is primed in Reaper brush on primer, black, and it's carapace has two coats of Golden's Interference (purple-green) paint.  Boxy is clean Bones, primed with Brown Liner with Old West Rose fleshy bits.  They'll get their own WIP soon.

      A bit bored at the office, so...  
       
      Shall we take a little hike?
       
      you're following a trail when it suddenly enters a dark and forboding forest. Do you enter?

       
      Feel free to use that in a game, but yeah, I take payment in candy...
       
      Once upon a time...

       
      I grew up in this fjord...
       
      Lets head up in the mountains. Frankly, I'm not too certain where these next pictures were taken.
       

       
      Now, the next one...

       
      This is taken not far from where I live now. About 3Km in distancee and 5hours hike... (Healthier people can do it in 3 hours, maybe)
       

      A local beach. Also a nature preserve, so no motorized access.
       

      A bit of a view among the trees...
       
      A couple of pictures from an early autumn hike last year, up to a mountain lake.
       
      Unpacked(read; just dumped my gear in the shelter. )

      Yes, it's possible to sleep on the benches, if you bring a sleeping bag and some sort of padding. Which is lucky because there's no flat space large enough to pitch a tent.
       
      There's supposed to be decent sized trout in the lake... Unfortunately, my GOOD rod was broken...
       
      At 10pm...

       
      On my way back down the next morning, I stopped to take a photo or two, and also one of my big camera(Ondurama 17x6)

       
      And finally, another one where I'm not really certain where it's from.

       
      That's all for now...

      Don't know what happened to Doug's Miniature Photography 101 thread that was in here, but I feel this is a very valid thing to have in this area.
       
      Found this today while surfing the web and thought it'd be very useful for a lot of us who try to take pics of our figures: TUTORIAL: BEGINNERS GUIDE TO MINIATURE PHOTOGRAPHY

      So, I'm working on this little lovely for fun, and possibly something else in the future. Thus, I decided I wanted to try OSL (object source lighting). It's certainly not finished yet (still a lot of work) and I think my OSL is off. So, a little help here?
