Val Fails at Painting KDM

Recommended Posts

The skin is a good tone and the hair is nice. I like the white. It's bright and the shading is clean. There's not a lot of shade over the white which is important for keeping white nice and bright.

 

OSL is a pretty advanced technique so kudos to you for trying it. You need to thin the paint a little bit more. The light on the arm stops in a very sharp line that could either be a tide mark or an intentional choice, I can't tell. The thing that drew my attention to it is that the light is going to diffuse as it goes around the curved object. Also, the light isn't going to end on her thigh. I'd recommend finding an LED or a flashlight (if you have a maglight, you can pull off the reflector and turn it on) and put the light where the figure's light is (right under the lantern would work) and then try to copy where that light falls. If you dim all the lights and take a black and white photograph it's easier to see where the light will fall.

 

Kingdom Death does seem to lend itself to OSL so I"m sure you'll get lots of practice. :)

I like it!  She looks awesome!  Don't be so hard on yourself!

 

I also agree with @SirLarpsAlot that the OSL paint should be thinned a little more, like a glaze.

 

Yeah, I realized that a little ways in and it was too late by that point so I had to roll with it. Definitely gonna go thinner on the next ones.

Finally wrapping the Screaming Antelope for my copy of Kingdom Death Monster. Fun fact: goats can have very blue eyes! I didn't know that until I went looking for references of goat eyes. Kinda creepy. So I added it to this piece because it being skinned alive wasn't off putting enough. And our survivors want to willing go looking for one of these things. Oh well, survivors have never been bright and always seem to engage in activities that we would consider stupid; like shaking weird heat sources or eating lion poop. Hopefully they'll be smart enough to listen to old farmers and not stand in the strike zone... who am I kidding? Someone is gonna die by getting kicked in the face by this thing.

No idea why the white background came out like it did, it seems to be something my phone does in the memory.

Wrapped up a White Lion Survivor set up in the configuration known as Nevergonnahappen. Kinda rushed but I still took the time to play with color choice, techniques, and paints. Speaking of I tried the Metal N Alchemy line of metallic paints from Scale75 and I'm a believer in the quality. It went on smooth without thinning (done on purpose) and gave perfect coverage of a zenithal prime (something that never happens). I'm looking forward to some more time with these paints on my Flower Knight.

Knocked out a Survivor repaint. Still struggling with skintones but I'm on the verge of something in other areas. Not sure what I'm on the verge of at this time though.

I also really need to figure out this new phone camera.

      Presenting Angry Joe, the last of my Survivors from the Gigalion expansion from Kingdom Death. He believes the best defence against monsters is to wear a suit made of their skin.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, Gorm armour is my favourite set despite all the little details, now I just need to paint the Gigalion itself.

      Presenting Skully, the third member of my Gigalion expansion from Kingdom Death. She likes skulls and has a pet rock.
       
      I think this is the weakest of the Survivors, it's not a bad mini but it's a bit of an awkward sculpt that doesn't make a whole lot of sense out of context. Was still fun to paint though.

      Presenting Lady Fancy Hair, my second Survivor from the Gigalion expansion from Kingdom Death, she's into whips and leather belts.
       
      Had this one sitting unfinished for a while (I got burnt out painting her fancy hair), but as I currently have a renewed interest in my Kingdom Death stuff, I thought I'd try and get her finished.

      "Umm... Guys, I think I've found our missing team members."
       
      Presenting the Cleric, part of the second Echoes of Death set from Kingdom Death, not sure why she has such a gruesome base insert, none of the others came with one.
       
      Disappointingly, she looks pretty terrible in the piccys. Honestly, apart from her decidedly wonky eyes, I thought I'd done a fairly good job.

      Second time tackling this one (I like it that much!), I think I prefer my newer, colourful version but I still struggled to do a decent job on his cloud cape, I think it needs more time and effort put into it than I have the patience for.
