An experiment in Wappel-style painting

Wow!! really? Did you also paint its eyes with that brush? 

 

Still, the result is incredible! Give us moar? 

 

Lol no, the eyes, teeth, tongue and claws were all done with a Size 0, though I probably could have managed the claws and tongue with the big brush. 

 

Since MrBoot is starting up a new Pathfinder campaign, I expect that I will be painting more minis in a similar fashion in the future. :) 

 

Huzzah!

That is awesome! The only Wappel-related note I could give is that you opened too many bottles of paint! ::P:

 

Seriously though, at Rcon 2016 I saw him paint two stands of FoW* infantry to roughly period-accurate colors using only a red, yellow, blue, black and white...in 30 minutes...while actively and animatedly carrying a completely unrelated conversation. The man is some kind of warlock.

 

Really lovely work, though. I havent been able to apply the stuff from his classes nearly as well, yet. You got excellent results in very good time!

 

 

* I think it was Flames of War...I don't play historicals, so I can't be certain.

That's great! I can't believe you got it to look so nice in an hour! I am super slow and would have it basecoated and starting on the face in about an hour. ::D: I think he looks really good!

I must admit to enjoying the sloppier parts of painting..one reason I like terrain so much. However you did the Wolf Man, he looks WONDERFUL. He looks like you spent quite a bit more time than you did. VERY WELL DONE!

Needs more purple! :poke:

Seriously though, that looks great, it definitely looks like you spent way more time on it than you did. And you had fun, which is the most important part! ^_^

:lol: You are completely correct! I don't know that I'll ever be able to completely move away from using the premixed colors I already have (because there's just too many pretty ones!), but I am going to be trying to do more mixing colors on my pallette and brush like he does, which will help me achieve smoother blends much more quickly. :) 

 

And yes, he totally is some sort of wizardly mad genius; watching him at work is a real treat!

Thank you so much! I'm normally a slow painter as well, which has frustrated me numerous times in the past. So, this ReaperCon I specifically took a couple of classes with the goal of improving my speed: Good Fast Painting by Tish Wolter, and Shaded Basecoats by Wappel. They helped so much!

That's fantastic!

I hope I can get into his class next year.

 

If you can, you should! It's a mind-breaking experience, but so awesome! :D

Thank you! I've generally been a very tidy painter, but that costs me quite a bit in speed. So I'm sort of learning backwards, because I'm trying to be messier! :lol:

Totally agree, it does need more purple! But MrBoot likes realism, so I had to settle for subtle purple undertone (which the camera entirely failed to pick up). We do have another one, though, so I might do it up in very dark purples as a sort of monochrome thing, or possibly blue. Just for fun. ^_^

 

Huzzah!

      My first time posting to this forum, please let me know if I misstep :p
       
      Reaper Bones Black: 44002 Rock Troll
       
      I added a more rocky base using rock and some plastic crystals carved from leftover plastic sprue. Also added some more crystals to his elbows and side. The elbows were just because I thought it would make it look more menacing but the one on his side was because of a huge hole leftover from the moulding process. To take care of assembly lines I used some of the rock I cracked apart for the base.
       
      I still have the belt and pouch to do, along with the base and some smoothing if blends in his muscles. 
       
      Feedback and CC most welcome!!!

      So the reason I had spare blackstar rifles was that I decided a proper pirate captain needs a sword. 
       
      So I built this guy with the bones 3 weapon pack, and the spare head off of the bones 4 bulldog armor. 
       
      His sword has much fire, and his reactor a distressing blue glow.

      Hi all.  I just finished the Colossal Skeleton that I've had for a couple years now.  For the longest time I was holding off because I was afraid of doing a mini so much bigger than all the rest.  I've gotten some nice reviews on some of my recent stuff so I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at my first large figure.  I have several sets much larger than even this guy so I had to start somewhere.  The closeup pics show how much work I did on the fur for the back lioncloth as well as the wood grain lines I painted on the planks on his right thigh.  I based him on a wooden plaque my mom was getting rid of that I painted black.  I was doing more work on the base, it was supposed to have some more colours in it but I messed up on the drybrushing so I called it finished and hid the mistake with some static grass .  So far one friend has told me the blue rags pull him out of the mini because they look too new and blue while the rest of him is old and rotted.  Maybe he could do with some more staining on the blue but it doesn't bother me much.  Anyways, enough preamble, I hope you all like him enough as my first large mini!
       
      Edit: forgot to apologize for the make-believe "lightbox" photos, but that's how it goes.

      From the Bones 1 core set, a basic lizardman with typically primitive stone spear and turtle shell shield. This mini has good quality details, especially seeing as this is an early softish bones model.
