Aku-chan paints a Painboy

Recommended Posts

Taking a break from working on my Kingdom Death stuff to paint this:-

Choose this one because I need to learn to paint without leaning forward so much, so a big, chunky dude seemed like the best place to start.

 

I'll make a start on the skin tomorrow, if I'm up to it.

Lots of metal bits! I wonder which would look more threatening -- shiny new surgical steel, or rusty iron?

 

Any syringes and stuff used for injections should be rusty of course!

Thanks for the comments everybody!

Normally, I'd agree, but for this one I'm sticking with shiny steel.

Partially out of laziness, but also because of the way he appears to be admiring his surgery hand, makes me think it's new.

 

I'd be curious to know what actions you are taking to correct your posture.

 

Nothing particularly drastic.

I normally paint sitting hunched over my painting table (so I can see what I'm doing), but I can't really manage that any more, so now I'm sitting right back in my chair and staying upright as much as possible.

It seems to be working with this mini, but I'm not sure how much success I'll have with the "daintier" minis in my collection.

 

 

Progress:-

Painted the Orks skin (1:1 Vallejo Dwarf Skin/Old West Rose > Fleshshade Wash > 1:1 Dwarf Skin/Old West Rose > 1:1:1 Dwarf Skin/Old West Rose/Vallejo Light Flesh). Also added a drop of Blood Red to the final highlight mix to paint his lips, and gave him a 1:1 Vallejo Bonewhite/Oiled Leather tooth.

 

Also started his Goblin assistant, but his skin is just a base of 1:1 Vallejo Rosy Skin/Light Flesh and a Fleshshade Wash so far.

Finished off the Goblin Assistants skin with highlights of 1:1 Rosy Skin/Light Flesh and 1:1:1 Rosy Skin/Light Flesh/Off-white.

 

I've also painted the Orks apron and various straps with Lonestar Leather and given them a Brownshade Wash (still need to highlight these), both his and the Goblins trousers (Vallejo Cold Grey shaded with 1:2 Cold Grey/Pure Black and highlighted with 1:1 Cold Grey/Wolf Grey) and all the steel bits (Vallejo Oily Steel with a Blackshade Wash, still need to highlight this as well).

More done:-

The Oily Steel bits got an edge highlight of Oily Steel (or in the case of his Surgical Hand, a light drybrush).

I then moved on to the other metal bits with a basecoat of 1:1 Vallejo Bronze/Vallejo Polished Gold and a Brownshade Wash.

Loving the non-green skin on the ork.  Metals are coming along wonderfully!

      The last of the drow I chosen to try to do this month. Again wanted to try different things, i.e. hair color, etc. different colors to see how they work. And here I went with the usual red clothing thinking it'll help the contrast of the green.

      I painted up some of Games Workshops' Namarti Reavers in a more wood-elf looking scheme. I plan to have them running alongside some deer as part of my 'animal friends' project. Just starting work on the deer, and very happy with the archers!

      Gave this model a different arm and hand pose, sculpted a wooden stick and used a resin bit from avatars of war necromancer for the spear head. This was a speedpaint that took probably around an hour. Thanks for looking!

      This one was actually painted by my sister. I wanted to share it with you since this is her second mini ever and I hoped some feedback would be useful to her
