77059: Orc Berserker (Two Handed Sword)

Recommended Posts

Well done!

 

I like the skin, higlights and shadows are in place.

Good brush control!

 

You did eyes! And very well too!

 

I would wash that armor with a black wash to blend the colours some more on that.

The dark spots are a bit harsh now.

 

All in all a good job!

 

And my 20th mini was not as good as this one..

Thanks! Will give the wash a try!

I like it. The lack of blending on the armor gives it a very cell-shaded, comic-book look. Stylistically, the armor works. I think the issue is that the style is not carried out across the whole model. The armor has cell shading, but the skin is more layered.

That's a really good observation, thanks! I did the armor first and then the skin, and knew something was off, but couldn't pinpoint it. I wonder if the same "cell-shading" technique would work for skin too. Maybe I found my personal style - gotta check out some comics for inspiration! :)

I think that is a very clean paint job that looks much better than a quick Table Top job. I don't think the NMM works as it is, but it does work as a cell shaded look. You ca achieve some very good results with metallic paints and controlled washes or, as you write, you can go for a general comic book look with clean lines and black or brown lining.

Thanks for the tips, much appreciated! :)

      My exchange partner this time around was @Corporea.  She was one of those troublesome ones that are fine with anything.  This of course means that I am free to do anything, so what I did was use her as an excuse to test out airbrushing my Vallejo Air Metallics.  Because of that this mini is a little more metallic than I might have otherwise done.  The aluminum didn't want to airbrush, or hand brush for that matter, so I may have a bad bottle.  Other than that they all worked as expected. I.e. you can create a TMM effect by combining these paints with a regular paint for the shadows.
       
      I also tried my hand at a mosaic tile base.  The area I started with isn't as good as the rest of the base, but seeing as I am already late I didn't go back and take even more time to repaint that area.  Overall I thought it turned out pretty well, though I don't believe I'll be doing it on cork again. While I thought the imperfections in the surface could work as missing tiles, in practice they just ended up being in inconvenient places.

       
      But unfortunately I had to stick a mini on it.
       

       

       
      Full frontal metal shiny.
       

       
      And rotating around for those that want to look.
       
       
      I also attempted to create the look of texture by applying leather colors in a series of parallel lines.  I kind of liked it but at the same time I'm not sure that it comes across as any particular type of texture.
       

       
      And that's it for my 2019 exchange.  Next year I might even try to be on time.

      I’m working on trying to get this big guy painted to tabletop standard by the time I have to use him at our next Pathfinder D&D session to represent the Roc King on Tilagos Island in the Demiplane of Last Resort, in the Age of Worms adventure path.

      Painted up these 8 unrelated barbarians as a clan for my Wrath of the Righteous campaign. Tried my hand at non-metallic metal again. This is the result. :)

      Hi everyone, here are pictures of the first model I painted this year. Seems like I'm having a busy January...
      02789, Talarand the Blackguard was sculpted by Tim Prow. It's one of the top five favorite model I painted so far. This suit of armor is astounding.
