Thanks all. Going to be trying new techniques on this so we'll see how it goes from here.

Okay, shaded metallics are done. I think...

Colors used:

 

Besides the ones previously mentioned:

 

Reaper Master Series: 9024 Amethyst Purple, 9280 Nightmare Black, 9022 Nightshade Purple

Reaper Pro Paint: 8063 Glacier Blue

MSPHD: 29818 Nightsky Blue

 

Chain was done in the blues. Did a final wash with the Nightmare Black (which is dark blue) to give some depth to the chain, but then touched up the highlights with Truesilver and that killed some of those. May do a final final wash of Blue Liner when I find it.

 

On the plate armor I shaded with Nightshade purple and highlighted with the Amethyst purple, both mixed with some Winter Blue to Blurple it. I'm really pleased with how the shield came out.

 

 

Left to do: Gold bits, leather, green tabard, wood on the back of the shield, and *BONK!*

 

Plan on working on those tomorrow.

 

Comments and critiques are always welcome. This is my first attempt at shading metallics like this, but dang is it hard to photograph with my crappy setup. I need to get my other lights together. :rolleyes:

I think that once you get the gold bits, leather, and green tabard done, he'll really pop! Of course, the *BONK!* will be *amazing* no matter what.

Must.. go into ... the liiiiight....

 

*cough* Sorry, where was I ... I /like it/! Reminds me of the adamantine blend I did for one of my paladins last year; didn't have near the depth, of course.

More progress!!

 

This time, greens.

Based 9236 Black Green, then moved up to 29810 Mossy Green, to 29811 Turf Green, then 29812 Meadow Green (from MSPHD). Highest highlights were Pro Paint 8059 Mold with a wee bit of Meadow Green mixed in.

 

Trim was the same Mold color.

 

I also did a wash of 9065 Grey Liner, and mixed some Pro Paint 8042 Dragon Black for some touchups.

 

Using the same greens, I washed over the base several times to start working that up, and used the grey liner/dragon black to begin adding woodgrain lines to the back of the shield.

 

Toned down the shine of the metallics with a wash of grey liner.

 

Comments and critiques welcome.

Welcome to freehand hell?

 

I think this is the first time I've seen BONK! with a known size reference.

Yeah. Taking a break before I start. My hands were going numb doing the tabard, so *BONK!* is going to full of AAAAAARGH!

Well, I was going to tell you that I have faith in your skills.. and then my keyboard tray tried to break my knees. I don't think there is a correlation, though.

 

BONK! is awesome. I look forward to seeing it in miniature!

Okay, done for tonight...

And the paint:

 

Added 9050 Antique Gold to the shield edging, plate edging, *BONK!*sword hilt, and a wee bit on the tabard edging though it may not show well.

 

*BONK!* body is PP 8061 Astral Blue, 8028 Buckskin, and RMS 9280 Nightmare Black.

 

*BONK!*'s head got a wash of Grey Liner, then started with 9670 Pumpkin Orange, and used the Buckskin to add highlights and then another wash of Pumpkin Orange to tone things down. Nose is Grey Liner, and his eyes are Buckskin.

 

Added a PP Sample color that is very close to Walnut to the back of the shield, then used Grey Liner to add a better woodgrain look. I'll be working on this off and on.

Okay, will be painting tonight providing my headache exits stage left. <_<

 

Not happy with the armor, so I'll be tweaking that. The freehand will wait until this weekend when I can be rested and focused.

 

Not working this weekend as I need some time off.

 

I will most likely not be on hangouts tonight. Have other people who want my company. ::D:

      They're finally done, my two Sir Forscale entries.

      First one: Sir Justin For$ale. He's in it for the money.




      Second one: Sir Justin Forscale, Grand Surveyor, complete with reflective strip safety tabard, a 3 inch accurate yard stick (at ½ in precision, who needs Bryangles?) and plumb line.

      A while back I figured that no collection was really complete without a Sir Forscale and I thought I'd paint him in the colors of Figmentius. Eventually I'll do one for all the houses.

      I was pleasantly surprised how well the freehand on the Unicorn turned out. Tonight is also the first time using my new camera, and the photos turned out quite well after I figured out what a Macro was.

      I was inspired by how the paint combination on the Copper head of my Ma'al Drakar turned out, so I thought it would be fun to turn a mini into a bronze/copper statue!
       
      Given that I still didn't have a fully painted Sir Forscale (@Reaperbryan owns all 3 of the ones I've painted to date), I decided it was high time I had one of my own.
       
      Those two things resulted in this:

       

       

       

       
      I removed him from his broccoli base and glued him onto a 20mm Reaper base, so he'd have a pedestal sort of thing to stand on. He was very quick to paint up, just Green Liner, Copper Verdigris, a light Turquoise Ink wash, then careful drybrushing of Coppery Orange.
       
      I had fun thinking about what the wear patterns on a regular statue would be, hence why sections of his base and his right foot are so much shinier than the rest. Because given any flat surface, people are going to sit on it to rest or take pictures, and prominent areas are usually kept shined from people rubbing them.
       
      And here's a couple of pics just for fun, since Ma'al is still hanging out on my desk:

       

       
      Huzzah!

      Nothing fancy, just practicing/getting back into the swing of painting.

      My inaugural Bones 3 paint, the Iron Golem (menacing Sir Forscale that I got from either a paint-and-take at PAX or a learn-to-paint kit, can't remember which).
       
      I'm not sure it really comes out in the picture, but I started with black/gray zenithal priming layers, airbrushed a not-too-thick layer of a bright metallic over it, dark wash, and then heavily shaded it with pure black glazes (there's supposed to be some left/right shading with the glazes, but it doesn't show well in the pictures I don't think). Then touched all the gouges with the metallic again, and painted the optics and vents with red and orange, on the assumption that iron golems are powered by some kind of eldritch furnace internally.
       
      (Sir Forscale was splashed with whatever bright primary color was close at hand, like you do when you're a complete noob at a paint-and-take, and I hope I got the right SKU from the list that came with my shipment.)
