77142: Townsfolk: Blacksmith

Recommended Posts

Yep, another of the townsfolk! And another relatively speedy paint job, probably about 3 hours total. If I could stop messing up the things I'd just finished so I didn't have to redo the mini half a dozen times, I'd probably be downright fast at this point... ::P:

 

I'm finding the greyscale+glaze technique particularly useful for leather... I've always struggled to get decent highlighting on leather, but I feel like this is working out pretty OK. ::): Thoughts?

I really like this piece. You captured the character of the miniature in FINE FASHION..a nice choice of colors & some SPLENDID work with the brush. VERY WELL DONE!

Whatever technique you used here for the leather has given it a good deal of shading, while also giving it a suitably soiled and weathered look well-suited to a blacksmith's apron!

 

Great job.ðŸ‘

Thanks folks! The apron was actually really easy... I did it in shades of grey with fairly rough, blotchy blends, added a couple scratches and such, then glazed a nice brown over top a couple times until it got the intensity I was looking for. I think I have another copy of him, would anyone find it useful if I re-did him but took a bunch of pictures along the way to document the process?

      Enlarge! Hello everyone, here are pictures of the 44109, Enlarged Dark Dwarf Smiter I completed last night. The size of this model allowed me to add more texture on the leather. I also added light effect on the face and the shield rivets. For those of you who may wonder, Dark Dwarves (Duergar) can once a day use their spell-like ability to enlarge themselves. This Bones Black model was sculpted by Bobby Jackson.

      All four Dark Heaven Legends models were sculpted by Bobby Jackson.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.
