So that was it. That was the conclusion to everything.
The story was over. Case closed.
It had been a promising beginning and - apparently - everything ended well.
Shadows, highlights, colours. All looking good. Especially the tie and trousers impressed me.
But then again, there were some things I weren't really satisfied with.
I took a drag from my cigar, buried in thoughts.
The colour had never reached the gun handle. There was just a small cover of blue. Shouldn't it have been in wooden colours?
And then this belt. I now remember that I used it back when I was a homocide detective, but I still didn't buy it. Guess I was just getting old. Damn that drinking habit.
Finally the name. I never found out who Max Decker really was. But that didn't matter anymore. He was gone.
Got a call from Janine this morning. She asked me to accompany her to Minnesota. I've never been there, so I said yes.
I took a last drag from my cigar, then I put it out and left the room.
Some time to relax. And who knows? There might be another case to be solved.
We will see.

tie and pants look awesome! Love those pinstripes.

 

I actually really dig the contrasty sash on the trench, I think it looks pretty good and balances the figure.

I agree the gun could use something. Maybe not wood, but a darker color. If you want a silvery look, you got it, but I don't think I buy the hardscrabble private eye carrying a chrome pistol.

 

nice work on the base, too. Love my texture stamps!

The figure looks great. Love the trench coat and the stubble. I would dark-line the gun in his jacket since it has similar tones to the shirt. I thought the area was a pit stain. XD

Good ideas on the gun! Perhaps if I do him again for a diorama in the future. Maybe I'll tweak it and dark-line the edges before sending him off, but I don't think I'll change the color overall. I'll leave that for the future. Thanks for the C&C ::D:

Awesome work!

 

***Another case solved, sure it did work out different as she expected, but it always does.***

 

*** He tipped his hat as the cops took her away, she had taken him for a schmuck , well that was her mistake***

 

*** He turned around and headed for the bar, he could use a drink***

      Hello everyone, here's my second 06132, Skeleton swordsman. This Warlord Necropolis Grunt was sculpted by Kevin Williams. Like the first one I painted, the lightning on its sword is freehand painting. These huge swords are great canvas to elaborate all kinds of effects.

      Hello everyone! After painting my 16 Citadel skeletons, I wanted to try something different on this one. Here is my rendition of my first 06132, Skeleton with Two-Handed sword sculpted by Kevin Williams. The lightning on its sword's blade is freehand painting, I used Reaper MSP paint.

      Painting weekends are the best.  I'm trying to maximize as much as I can before fishing takes over my life and every free moment of the weekends.  Although, I can't complain about wanting to get outside after being trapped inside for the last 6 months.
       
      These little fellas got done over a 2 month period.  I primed them, then let them sit.  Then started a litte, didn't like what I did, then put them back down for another month.  Decided to spice it up and go for broke and just lay paint down on whatever came to mind.  Glad I did as it pushed me to do something different.
       
      BATTLE REPORT! 
       
      Wins:
      *  I ended up doing an Army Primer Plate Mail color - even though I put this in as a win, it did have a few complications.  The AP primer seems to make them tacky.  The longer it sits the more tacky it gets.  However, the win here is that it saved me a lot of time covering all the plate mail.  
      *  Got to test out what inks and paints do over AP primer in metal color.  I'm not sure the paint properties were all that great, but I definitely learned a lot in the process.
      *  The red on the broadsword knight was a test of shading and layering.  Not my best work, but it gets the idea across.
      *  I liked the brighter "knightly" colors used in Orange and red. 
      *  The checkering on the red/black knight was my favorite.  A real test of patience in laying the lines down and then filling in.  VERY CAREFULLY.  
      *  The Orange checker was less consistent, but good to test across a wider stretch to see if I could.  It worked, Iiked the result, but still more to improve upon next time.
      *  I really enjoyed practicing black lining with these two and trying to keep a steady hand separating the plates due to the primer just coating the whole thing one color.
       
      Misses:
      * Black ink does NOT coat well on AP primer.  It takes two good coats and ends up with this slight, for lack of a better way of describing it "crackling" appearance in the ink.  It's like it has a hard time bonding and drying evenly.  Learned not to do this again.
      *  I also learned that doing a checker pattern is easier with a dark undercoat and you don't notice mistakes as much.  The orange/black combo really stands out where there's a slight line out of place.  
      *  Silver/Gunmetal are still super difficult for me to do and finding a way to make them pop is challenging.  Any advice here is appreciated.  Just something to make the weapons and armor stand out.
       
      Here they are!
